Fillers provide a safe, non-surgical approach to smoothing facial lines, using a natural, nontoxic substance known as hyaluronic acid.
Your natural collagen forms the fibers that provide the support structure for the outer layer of skin. Years of smiling, frowning, squinting and exposure to sunlight weaken this support. The skin sags and facial lines appear.
How is it replaced?
A filler is injected beneath the epidermis to replace lost volume. This gives the appearance of removing years by smoothing the skin and plumping the wrinkles. Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are examples of fillers used by Cumberland Skin Surgery and Dermatology.
Restylane® is Hyaluronic acid, a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler, which is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane® is free from animal proteins. Restylane® lasts eight to nine months.
Like Restylane®, Perlane® is also hyaluronic acid, but the difference is in the particle size. Perlane® gel particles are larger and designed for deeper injection than Restylane®. Perlane® lasts nine to twelve months.
An injectable gel produced through hylacross technology creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for nine-twelve months. Hylacross technology results in a smooth-consistency gel, which is a primary factor in the long-lasting, smooth, natural look and feel that is a hallmark of the Juvederm wrinkle correction. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid which is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells, and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin. Your doctor can tell you which Juvederm formulation is right for you. Juvederm Ultra injectable gel was optimally formulated for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds.
