Pick up a beauty magazine and you will read about the wonder of injectable fillers–the highly touted minimally-invasive treatments that can restore lost volume, enhance the lips, and smooth out deep creases and fine lines. Glance at the statistics and the trend becomes even more obvious: injectable fillers have become today’s go-to skin rejuvenation treatment.
Since 2000, the number of reported injectable filler treatments has increased by more than 250%. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2.3 million patients in the U.S. opted for dermal fillers, with hyaluronic acid-based fillers representing nearly 80% of all injections given. (Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible substance that binds with water to hydrate and plump the skin.) Why are injectable fillers so widely requested and successful? Dermal filler treatments are fast, painless, and effective. A lunch time appointment can yield instantaneous and enduring results, with no downtime needed.
There are several different types of fillers to help patients restore volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases. The difference in each filler is the various substances in it, and the length of time the filler lasts. We understand that each patient has their own goals, needs, and concerns. To accommodate each patient and to maximize results, Dr. Richard Westreich, a top New York City plastic surgeon, offers a range of volumizing injectable treatments:
The procedure involves performing small injections of the fillers, administered directly into specific areas of the face. The fillers can be made up of various substances, including collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxyl apatite, and can come from either natural or synthetic materials. Injectable fillers work by reducing the processes that cause soft tissue to lose volume, and the facial skin to become loose and less elastic. Simply, the fillers “fill in” areas of soft tissue to help restore volume to the face until wrinkles, folds. or depressions are reduced in appearance. Once you receive the injections, you can return to your normal activities.
You can expect to receive a quick, in and out, filler treatment without pain or downtime at Dr. Westreich’s Manhattan office. After you receive the injections, you will notice immediate results. However, injectable fillers are not permanent; how your body absorbs the fillers and the way your face continues to age will determine the time between treatments.
Generally, any individual who wants to enhance and restore a more youthful facial appearance by reducing the visibility of wrinkles and skin creases is a candidate for treatment with an injectable filler. People with visible scars from acne or trauma can restore a smoother appearance to damaged skin. If you have any of the following, you may be a candidate for injectable fillers:
