As we age, skin loses its elasticity and “sags" while the fatty layer of the subcutaneous tissue becomes thinner, and the production of collagen and elastin decreases. As a result, the face loses volume and thickness, especially in the middle and lower third of the face.

You can restore facial volume at PURE medical aesthetics, Stamford, CT using facial filler-based products. Fillers can use hyaluronic acid, biostimulating materials, or PRP depending on the candidate.

Do you have crowsfeet? Frown lines? Expression lines around the mouth? Undereye hollows? If your answer is yes to any, fillers are your solution. Injectable filler brands include Bellafill, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Voluma, Volbella, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Kysse, Radiesse, and Sculptra.

Lip fillers as non-surgical infiltrates also continue to be among the most popular in aesthetic medicine. Hyaluronic acid is widely used as a filler for semi-permanent lip augmentation, hihglighting the profile, contour, and plumpness of the lips. This material is injected using a cannula or very thin needles, depending on the characteristics of the lip.

Facial augmentation using injectable fillers in Stamford is popular and a great option for volume loss. Depending on the filler type they can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years giving you a youthful appearance immediately after injection.

The fillers are produced from different materials or a combination of them:

A collagen injection

It is a natural protein made from human or animal (cow) collagen that makes up the human body tissues.

A hyaluronic acid gel

It is an essential skin component and serves as a support for collagen fibers. Its function is to keep the skin smooth and hydrated since it can absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water.

Calcium hydroxyapatite

It is a synthetic version of one of the main components of bones that are easily absorbed and dissolved in tissues. It is applied as a gel.

An L-polylactic acid

It is a synthetic biocompatible and biodegradable material.

Like any medical procedure, filler injections also carry certain risks that can range from inflammation to infections that require treatment. For this reason, it is very important to evaluate the risks and analyze the benefits before undergoing an aesthetic procedure. Also remember that taking care of your skin begins with a good diet, exercise, getting enough sleep, and keeping it hydrated and protected from the sun.
