Dermal fillers are an excellent way to improve your complexion and facial structure. As you age, you may notice unwanted wrinkles, or perhaps less volume in your face. With injectable dermal fillers, like Juvéderm, you can lift and fill out the skin to create a smoother, more subtle appearance. Dermal fillers will reduce wrinkles and help to both reshape and enhance your face. It is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgeries available in today’s society. Many around the world such as Australians spend $1 billion on cosmetic surgery procedures similar to this.
Fillers can be used alone, but they are more often offered in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures. This includes laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels, both of which exfoliate the skin to create a smooth, even texture. Fillers can also be used to minimize acne scars (or other icepick or pitted scars) and to augment and reshape the chin, cheeks, and lips.
These fillers have a variety of applications, and our Minnesota staff is equipped to help you find a personalized solution. Talk to one of our healthcare providers to see how dermal fillers can improve your skin and confidence.
Your Skin is Too Important to Leave to Chance
At Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, we offer several types of cosmetic dermatology services in our Plymouth, Minneapolis, and Edina, MN locations. This, among others, includes dermal filler treatments. All these procedures are safe, proven to be effective, and are non-allergenic, which eliminates the need for pretreatment skin tests. Our licensed medical staff will evaluate your needs and help you discover which filler is right for you. Our treatment options include:
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA/JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS: These products utilize hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the body. JUVÉDERM® Ultra is best used on fine lines and wrinkles, while JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is used for deeper folds and wrinkles. One of our skincare specialists will help you determine which will work best for your skin.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: This filler stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production process, which can help restore its inner structure. Wrinkles become less noticeable and hollowed cheeks and temples are recontoured to their former shape and volume.
A dermal filler treatment involves injecting the filler, either Juvéderm or Sculptra, into the skin with an ultrafine needle. Typically, your aesthetician will use a topical or local anesthetic to control potential discomfort during the injection. After the dermal filler treatment, patients can immediately return to normal activities. Keep in mind that mild swelling and redness may linger at the injection site for one to two days.
If you’re interested in receiving a dermal filler treatment, Zel Skin & Laser Specialists is ready to talk you through the options. Additionally, Juvéderm is part of our Brilliant Distinctions program, which allows patients to save on select Allergan™ treatments, like KYBELLA® and Latisse. Patients earn points on the day of treatment to redeem for future visits.
