Facial Filler Options
Facial fillers are a nonsurgical method of reducing the appearance of creases and hollowed areas. Patients can choose from a range of filler products to address their specific needs. Dr. Goldschmidt offers the following dermal fillers:
JUVÉDERM® is an innovative and versatile filler product composed of high levels of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. This gel is a smooth and consistent formula that restores volume to recessed areas of the face and smooths facial wrinkles. Dr. Goldschmidt offers the following JUVÉDERM® products:
- JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
- JUVÉDERM® XC
- JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
- JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC
Restylane® is a popular tried-and-true dermal filler that contains no animal products, which minimizes the risk of allergic reaction. This product can produce natural-looking and long-lasting facial rejuvenation results. The following Restylane® products are available:
- Restylane® Lyft™
- Restylane® Silk
- Restylane® Refyne™
- Restylane® Defyne™
This product is similar to Restylane® but with larger molecules to create significant facial volume improvement. It can also smooth fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a softer and more youthful skin surface.
RADIESSE® contains calcium-based microspheres that stimulate healthy collagen production and tissue regeneration. It is ideal for treating fine lines around the nose and mouth and delivers lasting rejuvenation effects.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a recent addition to the facial fillers market and is renowned for its safety and efficacy. This dermal filler is beneficial for patients who want to address moderate-to-severe wrinkles and creases, such as nasolabial folds.
Sculptra® Aesthetic hydrates and rejuvenates the face by triggering natural collagen production, a process that improves the structure of the skin over time. This product replenishes lost facial volume to produce a more youthful aesthetic that can last up to two years.
Facial Fat Transfer
Facial volume loss often accentuates fine lines and wrinkles and produces an aged appearance. Dr. Goldschmidt offers facial fat transfer, which involves removing unwanted fat from a donor site and injecting it into areas that have depleted with age.
Treatment with facial fillers can usually be performed in 30 minutes or less. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the injection sites prior to the procedure if desired. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Goldschmidt will review your options and devise a treatment plan personalized to your expectations.
There is no downtime necessary after facial filler treatment. Some patients experience minor tenderness in the treated area, but this should subside quickly. Normal activities can be continued immediately after treatment, but patients may be advised to refrain from vigorous exercise for the first 24 hours.
Rejuvenation effects are noticeable right after facial filler treatment. Patients can enjoy the outcome of their procedure for as long as 12 months without the need for touch-up treatments. Regularly scheduling facial filler treatments can help maintain beautiful results.
Patients typically do not experience significant complications after treatment with facial fillers. Some potential side effects may include:
- Pain or discomfort
- Asymmetrical results
