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 the lower third of the face.
You can restore facial volume at PURE medical aesthetics, Stamford, Norwalk and Mamaroneck, CT using facial filler-based products. Fillers can use hyaluronic acid, bio stimulating materials, or PRP depending on the candidate.
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.
Do you have crow’s feet? 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.
The fillers are produced from different materials or a combination of them:
- A collagen injectionIt is a natural protein made from human or animal (cow) collagen that makes up the human body tissues.
- A hyaluronic acid gelIt 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 hydroxyapatiteIt 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 acidIt is a synthetic biocompatible and biodegradable material.
