Dermal Fillers: Tried And True Facial Rejuvenation

Let’s start with the basics: dermal fillers. They’ve been around for a while and have helped many to look their best. But what are your options? 

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Often referred to as “liquid facelifts,” dermal fillers are an effective non-surgical way to reverse the signs of aging and to restore volume loss. At Derma-Tech, we offer a large variety of options:

  • Juvederm Family of Fillers: XC, Ultra XC, Volbella, Vollure, Voluma: Injectable HA gels that increase volume in lip and cheek areas and help fill vertical lip and smile lines. Although many of these fillers are specifically made for targeting only one or two facial areas, the majority are quite versatile and can easily be used in a variety of applications.     
  • Radiesse: A dermal filler that increases collagen production, restoring volume to the target areas.
  • Restylane: Reduces moderate to severe wrinkles by adding volume. 
  • Sculptra: A collagen-stimulating injectable with long-lasting effects but has little immediate visual results. 
  • Bellafill: The longest-lasting, collagen-boosting filler available, which offers an immediate effect, creating natural-looking volume over a 2 to 4-year period, and in some cases up to 5 years.

What Results Can You Expect?

Dermal fillers are intensely customizable. Generally, you can expect to see near-instant results after your in-office appointment. Your individual treatment may last anywhere from 4-months to 2-years or more, depending on treatment area, type of filler selected, and other variables, such as age and life-style.

What Is A Vampire Facelift?

A Vampire Facelift is a procedure in which your provider can isolate platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) from your own blood and inject it almost anywhere in the face. This helps to increase cell turnover, promotes the production of your body’s own collagen, and stimulates circulation, giving the skin a beautiful, healthy glow. Treatment can be combined with dermal fillers for more dramatic results.

What Are Results Like? How Long Do They Last?

Results of a Vampire Facelift are both, instant and gradual. With facial injections, you can expect mild swelling, but this typically only lasts for 24-48 hours. Results are visible right away but longer-lasting benefits continue to develop over the following months. Although your results may last for several months or even years, there is no harm in having a Vampire Facelift more often. The key ingredient is the growth platelets in your own blood. You might think of it as a recycling program for your blood’s platelet-rich-plasma that helps keep you looking beautiful!
