Dermal Fillers Scottsdale
Restylane® · Perlane® · Juvederm™ · Juvederm Plus™
These fillers are fast becoming popular for treating facial wrinkles, as well as for plumping up lips. Because they are water-soluble, they fill wrinkles and depressions in the skin with a natural substance while slowly being reabsorbed by the body.
All of these products are a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance present in the human body called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe to your skin.
These products are very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds (commonly referred to as “parentheses”), and the frown lines (between the eyebrows). Results will last from 6 to 12 months.
These injectables are also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. Experience shows that these are effective for up to six months when injected in the lips. Because the effects of these fillers are not permanent, you have the option to discontinue use if your tastes or fashion trends change.
Dr. White or her licensed aesthetician, Lynda Ludwig, RN, will discuss your options with you for dealing with wrinkles and/or lip augmentation. They will help you understand the pros and cons of each wrinkle treatment, enabling you to make your own decision about wrinkle treatment.
