Injectable fillers have become extremely popular over the last ten years because of the natural looking aesthetic improvements they provide. As part of the aging process, the collagen in skin breaks down, diminishing its strength and volume. Dermal Fillers are a safe and effective solution for replenishing that volume and restoring skin to its youthful condition. Often called the liquid facelift or lunchtime lift, these facial fillers require just a few minutes to inject, with the results being almost immediate. There are many quality injectable fillers on the market today and Dr. Cory Torgerson likes to personalize the experience by determining exactly what his clients want to achieve before choosing which product to use. Some of the top brands that Dr. Torgerson offers at his clinic are Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Redensity II, Voluma Lift and Volbella.
So why is it called a liquid facelift? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring protein in the soft connective tissue of the skin. A synthetic form of HA has been developed that looks similar to a gel-like substance, or, thick liquid.
This liquid, or filler, is injected with tiny needles into the dermis or just below the dermis depending on the area being augmented. Little or no pain is experienced because lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is administered and included within the injections. Slight swelling and mild irritation can be expected, but any potential client should not dismiss dermal filler treatments for this reason, as the results outweigh the minimal discomfort. Dr. Torgerson is an expert injector from lip plumping to correcting under-eye hollows to restoring volume in the cheeks. After the initial swelling subsides, the results are typically exactly what the client hoped for with a refreshed appearance and a more youthful glow restored.
All dermal fillers will maintain the desired effect for at least 6 months, with some hyaluronic acid products lasting up to 18 months! The duration of the injectable fillers varies from patient to patient before the body eventually breaks it down and safely metabolizes it. The longevity can also be improved when patients maintain the filler over time, building up a stronger foundation of the hyaluronic acid.
As the popularity of non-surgical treatments increases around the world, dermal fillers are becoming more refined and specially targeted towards treating areas of concern. Various injectable fillers are used to target specific areas of the face where wrinkle correction and facial rejuvenation is required. For example, Teosyal Kiss, Juvederm and Volbella re popular choices for lip filler and marionette lines around the lips. Perlane, Voluma Lift and Teosyal Ultimate are excellent choices for defining the cheeks and jawline. Redensity II is the dermal filler of choice to correct undereye hollowing and dark circles.
