As we age, we often lose volume in our face. Although we may desire to lose inches around our waists or have slimmer thighs, the one place we WANT fat and volume is on our face! Dermal fillers can take years off your appearance by replacing lost volume to create a more attractive, youthful appearance. It is a great alternative to surgical procedures as it provides immediate satisfaction with little to no downtime.
At Visconti Medical Spa, Dr Visconti personally performs all of our injectors. He uses a wide range of FDA-approved fillers, such as Restylane, Voluma, Sculptra, Juviderm, and Radiesse, to help restore volume. Using his advanced technique, Dr Visconti can inject dermal fillers into the nasolabial folds, lips, temple, cheeks, and marionnette lines.
So how do you decide which filler is right for you? It entirely depends on where your face needs volume….and whether you want immediate results. For example, we prefer to inject Restylane into the lips while Radiesse is optimal for a mid-face fill (i.e. to get those “apple” cheeks back). But Sculptra is the “latest and greatest” of injectables. It lasts much longer than most other products (up to 24 months) and we can truly customize your treatment by injecting all over your face. The only downside with Sculptra? You won’t see immediate results like you do with other fillers. Sculptra promotes collagen growth so your body is creating its own volume – you can expect to see optimal results after a series of visits.
The injection itself only takes a few minutes. After the treatment, we will provide you with ice packs and you can immediately apply makeup as long as you are careful not to press or rub the treated sites. With most fillers, you will notice an immediate result after your appointment and you will experience little to no downtime. Follow-up treatments will be required to maintain results; the frequency of additional injections will depend on the specific filler used.
If you are tired of your sagging cheeks or deep nasolablial folds, it’s time to consider dermal fillers. Many patients are intimidated by the idea of fillers and injections for fear of looking “done” or over-plumped (especially in the lips!). Rest assured, Dr Visconti use a conservative approach. Please call for your complimentary consultation – the results are dramatic and long-lasting.
