Dermal Fillers

Why consider Dermal Fillers?

As we age, loss of volume, bone and other underlying structures in dermal tissues is common and manifests as visible sagging, wrinkles and loss of firmness and texture.

The use of dermal fillers is a non-surgical option that immediately addresses such signs of aging for patients seeking to create fullness and structure and to fill in lines. The science and art of understanding each type of problem and choosing the best filler that will best address the specific problem area are reasons patients of Dr. Anita keep returning over the years.

What is the science behind Dermal Fillers?

There are 2 main categories of fillers recommended by Dr. Anita and both are natural substances made by the body.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Belotero, Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane
  • Calcium hydroxyapatite: Radiesse

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water in order to plump up or “to fill in” a problem area and effects may last from 9 months to up to 2 years. The types of HA fillers are differentiated by their density and strength or what is called the G’ or density.

Thicker, stronger G’ HA’s such as Voluma and Restylane are injected in the deeper areas of volume and structural loss while lower G’ fillers work to plump up medium to very superficial lines. A great advantage of HA fillers are that they are dissolvable with a product called hyaluronidase so any problems can be reversed immediately.

Restylane and Juvederm Ultra XC

Natural dissolvable hyaluronic acids nonsurgical injectable fillers that when used correctly can softens signs of aging and give a fresh natural appearance. Most often used for treating:

  • Moderately deep folds and wrinkles
  • Acne scars and depressions
  • Thinning or asymmetric lips

Restylane and Juvederm generally last 9 months or more. Restylane LIFT is manufactured by Galderma; Juvederm Voluma XC is manufactured by Allergan.

Both these natural, dissolvable hyaluronic acids have higher denser G’ s and are therefore placed deeper into the ski to add volume and lift to such areas as the cheek and jaw to form a more youthful facial contour and structure. These volumizing HA”s are used to rebuild the foundation of the face and often other fillers are used on top of this to fill in wrinkles or folds. Voluma lasts 1 to 2 years, Restylane Lift Lasts 1 to 2 years.

Calcium hydroxyapatite based Filler – Radiesse

Radiesse is a natural calcium-based filler that contains microscopic particles that stimulate new collagen production into the injected area while adding lift, structural support and volume. Radiesse is injected deeper into the skin and causes an immune reaction that regenerates collagen that results in a lift the structures and improvement in deep lines. Liquid facelifts often are based on this substance as it serves to improve the appearance caused by the loss of deep structural bone and tissue resulting from natural aging or injuries.

Results last up to a year or more and the number of syringes needed depends on the individual’s degree of structural loss. After about 12 months the effect of RADIESSE will subside and re-treatment will be appropriate. However, many patients find that over time less syringes are usually needed as more collagen is generated by this filler.

What areas does it treat?​

Areas of volume or bone loss such as: temples, jawlines, cheekbones, jowls, earlobes, nose, hands, receding chins and any depression or structural asymmetry. Facial wasting from illness or weight loss is often treated with Radiesse.
