Many options. There are many options for facial fillers and enhancement. There are different applications for the different fillers that are fda approved. Some are better in certain places. You should consult with an experienced surgeon or provider.
Fillers. Restylane (dermal fillers) and sculptra are great products in experienced hands. Whether they are "the only way" depends on what you are treating. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Cosmetic treatments. What treatment to use depends on what the problem areas are. Most skin changes we know as "aging" are due to volume loss in facial skin, soft tissues & bones. To make the face more youthful-looking, this loss is replaced with fillers. Lasers can be used for skin tightening, correcting redness and brown spots and generating new collagen. Botox relaxes facial muscles and smooths dynamic wrinkles.
Depends. There are other fillers that vary in cost and duration of correction. Fat transfer is another option as well.
Cosmetic options. Both Restylane (dermal fillers) and sculptra are great options to reverse the signs of aging. Both rejuvenate by adding volume. Results with Restylane (dermal fillers) are immediate and last several months. Results with sculptra take several weeks to develop, but last a year or longer. Other non-surgical options include juvederm and radiesse. Each of these fillers have advantages and disadvantages.
Volume restoration. The best means of rejuvenating your face depends on your appearance and what you would like to improve. There are 3 levels of intervention. Everyone benefits from good skin care: at a minimum, I recommend tns serum and sunblock. Next there are office injectable treatments like botox, restylane, (dermal fillers) sculptra w/ minimal downtime. Finally there are procedures w/ some downtime (lasers, surgery, etc).
NO. Restylane (dermal fillers) is an injectable filler and sculptra is a facial volumizer. Other methods of adding volume to the face include Radiesse or juvederm injections, fat injections/transfer and facial implants.
Ask about experience. You should seek a provider that has extensive training and experience in the use of various facial fillers. Most often this would be a facial plastic surgeon, a general plastic surgeon or a dermatologist.
Ask? Why not. I would recommend you discuss this with your gynocologist sure, but I would consult a physician with experience with injectables for the actual treatment. This is usually a plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
Yes. Many gynecologist are doing cosmetic procedures as well. The company that makes sculptra will only sell the product to plastic surgeons and dermatologists so the gyn may not be able to treat you. Sculptra can cause hard nodules that need to be removed surgically. I'm not a big fan. Restylane (dermal fillers) is safe and can be revered if needed.
It can't hurt to ask. My prejudice is that physicians should practice within the parameters of their clinical privileges and core curriculum. While your ob-gyn may well be your closest and favorite personal physician, he or she is not the most qualified to be performing full facial rejuvenation treatments (including providing all options and caring for complications). Ask for a referral to a plastic or derm surgeon.
Ask vs. Perform. Your gynecologist may be able to recommend a facial plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist for consultation regarding those treatments. Sculptra is a great product for volume replacement, but is only administered by trained (facial) plastic surgeons and dermatologists. The expertise of these appropriately trained doctors will help ensure the best results. Good luck.
See an expert. The doctors with the most experience injecting fillers are aesthetically trained specialists such as dermatologists and plastic surgeons. To have the best results, experience and training count.
GYN Sculptra. Sculptra is only offered by certain core specialties and gyn is not one of them. However your gyn might be trained in restylane (dermal fillers).
Go to a specialist. Each specialty has it's own defined area of expertise. A gyn is an expert in problems of the female reproductive system. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists are the experts in issues of the skin....And that's where I think you should go. Would you go to a car mechanic to get your watch fixed?
Fillers. If you plan to have fillers injected into your face, you are in better hands with a surgeon who understands facial anatomy.
Sculptra. Ask your Gyno about restylane (dermal fillers) and Sculptra? What am I missing here? What are you asking? You can ask your Gyno what ever you want but what are you asking us? What is the filler being used for?
Could someone get restalyne, radiesse, (dermal fillers) sculptra, etc. Injected into their jaw to enhance jaw definition?
Yes. This depends on what areas you are speaking of. These products can all enhance the side portions of the jaw and fill lower jowls If you are speaking about building up the chin area they can do a bit but are really not intended to create the effect that a chin implant would deliver.
Fillers for jaw. With some limits, I know of Restylane, (dermal fillers) Radiesse, Artefill and Juvederm filler being successfully used to enhance jaw contour. Depending on the amount of correction required, the patient may be better served by using jaw and chin implants.
Yes, but. The injectable dermal fillers can enhance jaw definition however, they are not a substitute for an implant. Your best bet is to consult with a plastic surgeon or oral surgeon that offers both to determine which is best for you.
Jaw enhancement. You might consider an implant or orthognathic surgery.
Restylane (dermal fillers) filler. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid filler which is used in aesthetic medicine to fill lines and wrinkles on the face.
Restylane's a filler. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a product that is injected into or beneath the skin for cosmetic reasons. It helps with wrinkles. In addition, as we age our face looses fat, which makes us look older. Restylane (dermal fillers) injections add volume which can make you look more refreshed and youthful. Restylane (dermal fillers) is made of hylauronic acid which is a natural skin substance. Treatments tend to last 6-12 months on average.
Dermal filler. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is currently the only filler that is fda approved for treatment for both lip augmentation and nasolabial fold rejuvenation. It is injected into the face to help soften lines or provide volume to certain areas.
Restylane (dermal fillers) Restylane (dermal fillers) is a clear gel. It's made of a naturally occurring sugar polymer, called hyaluronic acid. It's an fda approved dermal filler, and is very helpful for treating facial wrinkles.
Dermal. Filler made of hyaluronic acid.
2-3 syringes. Depending on your needs for lip augmentation, most people require about one syringe for the lips. Cheeks usually require at least one syringe per side of the face.
Restylane (dermal fillers) The amount of restylane (dermal fillers) you need depends on your own anatomy and goals for your appearance. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Restylane (dermal fillers) Typically, 1 syringe of Restylane (dermal fillers) is good for lips and cheeks. Your nurse injector and/or plastic surgeon will evaluate you during consultation to determine the best treatment.
Botox. Botox paralyzed muscle so the muscular action doesn't make wrinkles in the skin. Restylanecis a hyaluronic acid filler which fills the valleys of wrinkles to make them go away.
Compare injectables. Botox is a type of neurotransmitter blocker, a class of medicine including Dysport and xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a). They all temporarily block muscle contraction to smooth the skin and fine wrinkles overlying the treated muscle. Restylane is a soft tissue filler made from hyaluronic acid (a component of skin). There are more types of injectable fillers, which all add volume to the treated deep and fine wrinkled skin.
Differently! Botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) are not similar at all and they are not interchangeable. Botox relaxes the muscles under the skin which allows the skin to move less and have less wrinkles. Motion wrinkles go away quickly, resting wrinkles take multiple treatments. Restylane (dermal fillers) is filler that replaces lost volume in the face. It works great for fixing facial contour, it does very little for wrinkles.
See below. Botox works by temporarily interrupting the connection between the nerves and muscles of the face, resulting in weakness or paralysis of the muscles. This allows the lines in the skin caused by repetitive motion to "heal" (similar to putting a fractured bone in a cast). Restylane (and all dermal fillers) work by replacing volume that has been lost in the skin or the fat beneath the skin.
Wrinkle reduction. Both Botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) are great options to improve the skin, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate the face. These cosmetic treatments compliment one another. Botox helps smooth the skin by relaxing facial muscles, especially the areas between the eyebrows and forehead. Restylane (dermal fillers) adds volume to reduce wrinkles, especially the lips and area around the lips.
Botox. Botox, Dysport and xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a) act by relaxing muscles which are creating skin folds, like crows feet and frown lines. Dermal fillers such as retylane, Perlane an juvederm act by adding volume to tissues, such as in areas of fine lines or "deflated" cheeks or lips. They two groups often work well in concert. See a board certified facial plastic surgeon to determine if either (or both) would work for you.
Botox/restylane. Botox is a neurotoxin injected into muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a filler that can fill in lines. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Hyaluronic fillers. Be realistic in your expectations. Discuss your expectations with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Most individuals who are unhappy have had it done for the wrong reason.
Restylane (dermal fillers) & Juvederm. Juvederm and Restylane (dermal fillers) are hyaluronic-based fillers used to restore a youthful appearance to the skin by adding fullness to the hollow areas and filling in moderate to severe wrinkles. They commonly are used to fill in lines around the mouth and those that extend from the nose to the mouth. Results last up to a year with Juvederm and approximately 6 months for Restylane (dermal fillers).
Fillers. Fillers like Restylane (dermal fillers) and Juvederm can improve the nasolabial folds. They are injected and last about 6-9 months. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
6-8 months. 6-8 months, if done properly.
6 to 9 months. Radiesse (dermal fillers) is another filler that can change the appearance of the nose. It lasts longer - about a year.
Depends. It depends on the material used. Restylane (dermal fillers) typically lasts about 6 months and juvederm and Radiesse last about a year.
6-12 months. 6-12 months.
6-12 months. It seems to last a little longer in this location than in the lips or nasolabial folds. But on average, about 8-9 months.
Filler in nose. Hyaluronic acid fillers last typically 6-12 months. However, when injected in the nose, the experience is variable with each patient because injection in the nose is very different than injection into a wrinkle or fold.
