While you may not want other areas of your body to be plump, a little plumping may be just what you need to make your face look younger and more attractive. It may be time for you to try facial fillers, a

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel (from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic in Washington, DC, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a "next-generation" dermal filler that, like Restylane, is made with hyaluronic acid. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and hydration to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like "smile lines" or "parentheses."
Restylane is a popular non-surgical option for those in Maryland and Northern Virginia who desire facial rejuvenation. The human body maintains healthy skin and firm underlying tissues by producing hyaluronic acid, which then bonds with water in the body to maintain the volume and firmness we associate with youth. Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in Restylane, which is injected into the skin with a very fine needle.
Restylane bonds with the body's own moisture to smooth the skin and replenish volume. It helps reduce the lines and folds that develop around the mouth, eyes, nose and forehead. By returning lost volume to tissues beneath the skin, Restylane can also strengthen the chin, sharpen the cheeks or, as some Maryland patients have discovered, provide lip enhancement.
No downtime is required with Restylane. Your beautiful new look will appear immediately and lasts longer than collagen. A maintenance procedure can retain your more youthful looking results.
Completely biocompatible with the human body, Restylane requires no allergy test. The most common side effects are temporary redness and swelling, which usually subside in just a few days.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is another dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. It provides immediate improvement of facial lines, folds, and wrinkles, with results that last several months. BELOTERO BALANCE® was developed to better integrate with your skin and adapt to your unique facial contours. Patients love the smooth results!
Young, healthy skin contains plenty of collagen to maintain its volume, strength, and elasticity. The face gradually looses volume over time with the natural aging process. RADIESSE wrinkle filler stimulates collagen production. Results are immediate and potentially last up to one year in some patients. RADIESSE has also been approved to be mixed with lidocaine anesthesia to enhance patient comfort.
Sunken cheeks and facial volume loss caused by facial aging and sun damage can now be gradually improved with Sculptra Aesthetic, a safe, synthetic injectable material known as "poly-L-lactic acid." This injectable filler stimulates collagen production gradually for long-lasting results.
Similar to other facial fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic is a quick procedure performed in the office via local anesthesia. Improvements appear gradually as you naturally produce facial collagen, which is approximately 6 weeks. Optimal cosmetic results usually require at least 2 treatments or more, each spaced at least 6 weeks apart.
While the cosmetic improvements can last up to 2 years, Sculptra Aesthetic is not permanent. Many patients return periodically for maintenance treatments.
These fillers can be used alone or in conjunction with other facial cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, other dermal fillers, or facelift surgery near Maryland.
