Cosmetic Fillers & Injectables Covington LA
As we age, our skin loses volume and begins to show wrinkles more due to a loss of collagen and elastin. Fillers are injected into the superficial layers of the skin to help restore lost fullness to the face, lips, and hands. Dr. Soine uses a wide variety of products and services to help you achieve the results you want.
There are two different types of dermal filler: hyaluronic acid gel fillers and collagen boosters. Hyaluronic acid gel fillers can instantly add volume or smooth over wrinkles, while collagen boosters work more slowly by actually stimulating the skin to produce more collagen. Fillers are a great non-surgical alternative for full facial rejuvenation.
Juvederm and Restylane
Juvederm and Restylane are collections of hyaluronic acid injectable fillers that are a nonsurgical alternative used to plump and lift wrinkled, creased, and aged areas of skin.
Each product in the Juvederm and Restylane collections adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth smile lines, and plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.
• Juvederm Ultra XC: Adds fullness and plumps thin lips. Smooths and corrects smile lines around the nose and mouth
• Juvederm Voluma XC: Designed to lift and contour the cheek area.
• Juvederm Volbella XC: For lip augmentation and the correction of perioral lines and tear
• Juvederm Vollure XC: Long lasting up to 18 months for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
• Restylane Lyft Cheek augmentation: Reduces facial folds near the nose and mouth
• Restylane Refyne: Smooths lines that run alongside the corners of the mouth
• Restylane Defyne: Smooths deep lines around the mouth
There are two different types of rhytids (wrinkles): static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are those lines in the face that persist after muscle tension is relieved while dynamic wrinkles are those that are present only with muscle contracture.
Neuromodulators such as Botox® and Dysport® are used to reduce the lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows “frown lines”, and around the eyes “crow’s feet”, by relaxing the muscles responsible for the development of static and dynamic lines or wrinkles.
It is highly effective at both preventing future wrinkles and smoothing existing ones. BOTOX and Dysport can also be used to reduce excessive sweating. The length of efficacy varies depending on treatment location. Early studies indicate that after receiving injections over time, there appears to be a longer lasting effect.
