As the skin ages and the production of collagen is decreased, a variety of lines, wrinkles, and folds can appear on the skin. At Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa, we understand that there isn’t just one way to approach skin rejuvenation, and we offer multiple dermal fillers at our office in College Station, Texas.
Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa is led by Dr. Ricardo Pocurull. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out how dermal fillers can smooth and tighten your skin with no downtime.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable skin rejuvenation treatments that are administered underneath the skin with a fine needle. Comprised of hyaluronic acid and other substances that occur naturally in the body, dermal fillers provide immediate plump to volume-deficient areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth. At Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa, we offer a wide range of dermal fillers from some of the most trusted names on the market to address your aesthetic concerns.
With one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Juvederm® is a smooth, flexible gel that effectively tackles smile lines, marionette lines, corner lines, and vertical lip lines to refresh your appearance. While some skin rejuvenation options only last for a few months, Juvederm® can last for up to one year with optimal treatment.
Voluma, another Juvederm® product, is the first filler to be approved by the FDA to correct volume loss in the cheeks. As the skin loses structure and shape during the aging process, the cheeks can develop a hollow or sunken appearance. Voluma® directly targets this cosmetic concern to restore more youthful contours to your facial profile for results that can last for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Are you experiencing a “double chin” due to excess fat in your lower face? Kybella® is the first FDA-approved filler specifically designed to create tighter, more elevated contours underneath your chin. Kybella® is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is found in the body and helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fatty tissues underneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells and disables them from accumulating or storing fat in the future for long-lasting results.
This is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is meant to act like the natural hyaluronic acid in your body. Restylane® is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe signs of aging and can also be used for subtle lip enhancement in patients who are also experiencing thinning lips.
This multi-purpose filler can address the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth as well as improve the shape of the cheek areas. This product is also mixed with lidocaine to increase patient comfort and reduce post-treatment discomfort.
Restylane Silk® is made of smaller, smoother particles that are specially designed to address fine lines around the mouth such as vertical lip lines. Restylane Silk® can also be used to provide subtle lip augmentation for patients experiencing thin lips as a result of aging.
Xeomin® is an injectable treatment based on a solution of botulinum. Similar to Botox®, Xeomin® prevents the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by limiting the contractions of the muscles that lie under the face. Patients will still be able to make expressions after completing the procedure, they’ll just be free of the fine lines and wrinkles that sometimes take away from them.
Belotero® is an injectable dermal filler meant to treat the fine lines and creases that can appear around the mouth, as well as the loss of collagen that causes these visible signs of aging. The excess of Belotero® that is left after treating those etched in wrinkles is designed to naturally integrate with the skin’s tissue.
An injectable dermal filler based on a hyaluronic acid solution, Volbella® is designed to thicken the lips and restore tautness to the skin surrounding the mouth. Volbella® aims to create a naturally voluptuous look which, depending on the individual, can remain apparent for many months following the treatment.
One of the first injectable treatments of it’s kind, Kybella® is designed to destroy fat cells that lie in the submental area of the face, where the “double-chin” forms. After being injected into the area underneath the chin, the skin will naturally adjust to the new contour, leaving the lower face looking taut.
During your consultation, your health, medical history, aesthetic goals and other factors will be discussed with you to determine which dermal filler may provide the most direct benefit to your skin. Slight bruising, swelling and redness are common and temporary side effects. Results may vary, and multiple treatment sessions may be necessary in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
