Cosmetic dermatology has come a long way in the past few decades. Thanks to modern technology, it is possible to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery. Many people in the Miami area are turning to non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers to address visible signs of aging on the face.
As we get older, loss of volume can change the shape of the face and alter a youthful appearance.
At Miami Skin and Vein, Dr. Shaun Patel and his team is highly experienced in injectable treatments. At our office, patients can choose from all of FDA approved dermal fillers on the market. Each one is a little different from the other, designed to solve specific concerns.
These dermal fillers can address issues on the face including:
Fine lines generally start to appear due to a loss of hydration in the skin. UV damage can break down collagen and elastin which also leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Softer hyaluronic acid filler gels such as Belotero, Restylane Silk, Volbella and Juvéderm Ultra are ideal for fine lines, especially those around the mouth, forehead, and neck.
Deep lines and wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds (the folds that go from each side of the nose down to the mouth) and marionette lines (those around the sides of the mouth) also respond well to dermal fillers. For these deeper folds and furrows, we recommend thicker fillers such as Juvéderm UltraPlus, Voluma, Restylane, or Radiesse.
Collagen, fat, and bone loss can lead to major changes in facial contours. To replace this lost volume and in certain cases to stimulate collagen regeneration, our go-to fillers are Voluma, Radiesse or Sculptra.
There is no one size fits all approach to dermal fillers. During your consultation, Dr. Patel will evaluate your face, explain the aging process, and recommend which fillers are best to resolve your unique concerns. To schedule a consultation, call our team today at 786-618-5039.
