To Fill or Not To Fill…
…is a question we hear everyday and love educating our patients on the amazing benefits of this revolutionary product.
Since 2003, Dermal Fillers have dramatically changed the aesthetic industry, giving us a safer alternative to plastic surgery. Beauty transcends age, but it doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a youthful look. With their ability to smooth away wrinkles and reduce many common signs of aging, men and women now have a non-invasive and affordable way to look and feel younger.
What are Dermal fillers? Dermal fillers are injections that contain a gel, with the content of this gel varying depending on the filler you choose. The most common fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, but there are so many other skin-plumping substances out there that can be used. However, at Newtown MediSpa, we only carry Hyaluronic Acid Dermal fillers, because they are the safest on the market and also reversible. The filler you choose will also have an impact over how long your results last, with this ranging from six months to two years. Here are some of the most popular uses for Dermal Fillers.
While some people were blessed with naturally plump lips, most of us were not. The fact that the lips commonly thin with age doesn’t help either! This is why more and more people have been turning to Dermal fillers to add volume and shape to their lips. It is a simple treatment that will make a huge difference to your overall look. It is by far the most popular treatments in our practice, and depending on which Dermal filler your providers uses, it can last 6 months to 18 months.
Around the Mouth
While laughter is great for your physical and mental health, laughing does also lead to those pesky lines that form around the mouth. They are commonly referred to as Marionette lines, Nasolabial folds, or Smile lines.
Even though Laugh lines are an unavoidable part of aging, Dermal Fillers can help to smooth them out. By injecting into the actual creases around your mouth, the filler will add volume and plumpness, making the creases so much less visible. Lasts about 12 months to 18 months.
Aging causes the skin to loose volume and elasticity, resulting in a gaunt and saggy look in the cheek area. Dermal fillers are used to replace the natural volume in the cheeks, due to aging or weight loss. The results are added volume, definition, firmness, and a more youthful appearance. Depending on which Dermal filler your providers uses, it can last 12 months to two years.
Under the eyes
Darkness and shadows beneath the eyes that are caused by your bone structure or poor lighting don’t go away on their own, no matter how much sleep you get. Dermal Fillers are wonderful for adding volume beneath the eyes, reducing a “shadowed” effect and helping you look refreshed and youthful. Can last up to 12 months.
Chin and Jawline
A strong chin and jawline tends to be more attractive, which is why more and more people are opting for Dermal fillers to help re-sculpt this part of their face. When used on the jawline, Dermal fillers add so much definition, leaving your face looking much sharper and more contoured. When used on the chin, Dermal fillers can define the chin and jowls, minimize the appearance of a weak chin, and lengthen the chin to balance out facial proportions. This treatment can last up to 8 months to 18 months.
Also known as the Liquid Nose Job, the treatment can change the shape of the nose without an invasive surgery. Dermal filler can be used to hide nasal bumps or indentations, creating symmetry as well as correct the nasal bridge and tip. This treatment can last up to 12 months.
These non-surgical facelifts are much less invasive then going under the knife. After a comprehensive consultation with your provider, she will use a combination of Hyaluronic Acid Dermal fillers in your face (like cheeks, jawline, chin, eye troughs and temples) to replace volume, soften lines and lift sagging skin. Lasts about 12 months to two years.
Yes, even the earlobes can benefit from Dermal Fillers, too. The aging process causes these to sag just like any other part of the body, and this effect is especially noticeable in women (or men) who have worn heavy earrings throughout most of their lives. Sagging, elongated earlobes can be unattractive and age-revealing—but a few quick filler injections can perk them back up. This treatment can last up to 12 months.
In 2018, the FDA approved the use of Dermal Fillers for the backs of the hands, which often show age rather quickly, thanks in part to year-round sun exposure and the natural displacement of fat with age. To offset the appearance of veiny, aged hands, we recommend treating the hands with a Dermal Filler. It creates instantly appreciable results that can last up to 12 months.
Finding the Right Injector
Probably the most important factors to consider when contemplating Dermal Fillers, is finding the right injector. There are many providers that can inject, but only a few that have the knowledge that marries art, medicine and mathematic symmetry, to create naturally beautiful results.
All of our injectors are Master injectors with hundreds of hours in training performing safe and effective Dermal filler treatments. Newtown MediSpa is recognized as a Top 1% provider of Botox, Juvederm, Kybella and CoolSculpting across the nation. Why is this important? Because it means we perform more injections than 99% of other practices in the US. We inject EVERYDAY and are experts at it.
