At Northstar Dermatology, our expert dermatologists aim to make your cosmetic dreams a reality. After understanding your aesthetic aspirations during a consultation, they may suggest fillers for:
For those keen on targeting dynamic wrinkles resulting from constant facial expressions, Botox® is available. This injection helps the tightened skin muscles to relax, giving a smoother appearance. Combining Botox with fillers is also an option.
Juvéderm fillers, renowned for their efficacy, are derived from hyaluronic acid (HA). Naturally present in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals, hyaluronic acid boasts the ability to retain water up to 1,000 times its weight. When injected as a filler, HA efficiently draws and retains moisture beneath the skin, ensuring long-lasting effects.
There are other filler varieties as well, like calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) – a mineral typically found in teeth and bones. This is recommended for facial or hand enhancements. Alternatively, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a decomposable polymer used in dissolvable stitches and bone screws, might be suggested.
The body’s natural metabolic processes mean that the effects of fillers are temporary. The longevity of results is contingent on the type of filler used.
On average, dermal fillers can remain effective for over six months*. If combined with Botox treatments, the effects can stretch up to four months*. As the product gradually diminishes, you’ll start observing the recurrence of wrinkles and lines. But worry not, you can always revisit Northstar Dermatology to keep those youthful vibes going.
Maintaining your skin health and protecting it against environmental aggressors is pivotal for lasting results and natural aging.
