San Diego county dermatologist explains dermal fillers
Volume and wrinkle reductionAs we age, we lose facial volume. Natural fat pads are resorbed and bone shrinks. The body produces less collagen and elastin, the fibrous proteins that keep skin thick and taut. Gravity pulls the soft tissue downward. This combination reverses the triangle of youth, making the face wider at the mouth and chin. Dermal fillers are injected to replace lost volume. They provide substructure and lift, to restore youthful contours.
Fillers are controlled medical solutions, available only by injection from a doctor. The best, safest outcomes are achieved with FDA-approved products administered by a qualified physician. Dr. Lloyd has the training and experience to design a customized treatment plan, with a combination of fillers:
- Hyaluronic acid(HA) – The Juvéderm family, Restylane products, and Belotero are HA fillers. HA provides immediate results, and stimulates skin to create new collagen. These fillers can be used almost anywhere – temples, cheeks, tear troughs, jawline, lips, and nasolabial folds.
- Calcium hydroxyapatite – This substance is found in bone, making it the filler of choice to rebuild underlying structure. Radiesse is ideal for temples, cheeks, and jawline. It also produces immediate results in the backs of hands, lifting skin to cover exposed veins and tendons.
- Poly-L-lactic acid – Sculptra generates outstanding results in 6 to 12 months, with a series of sessions. This filler forms a framework within tissue, for the body to produce its own natural collagen. It can be administered wherever there is facial volume loss, and for reduction of wrinkles at the center of the chest.
