As we age, our skin loses volume due to reduced levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are used to replace lost volume, providing immediate results with very little downtime. Dermal fillers are sometimes used in conjunction with other treatments like Botox and skin resurfacing which can provide an immediate, and long-lasting result. Our providers will recommend a dermal filler for your specific needs during your cosmetic consultation.
At Seattle Skin and Laser we use Juvederm XC, Radiesse and Belotero dermal fillers.
Juvederm XC is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid which provides volume and fullness to the skin. Juvederm XC also has a pre-mixed numbing agent (lidocaine) for added comfort. It is injected into facial tissue to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, add volume and restore a smoother appearance to the face. The results last about 6 months.
Radiesse is an injectable gel containing calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that provides volume and fullness to the skin as well. They are injected into facial tissue to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, add volume and restore a smoother appearance to the face. The results last about 12-18 months.
Belotero is a dermal filler that will quickly integrate into your skin for results that are uniquely you. Belotero’s unique manufacturing process offers a soft, cohesive gel that is able to fill in your wrinkles for results that are even, smooth and immediate. Once injected, Belorero instantly plumps the skin and mothes the lines or wrinkles on your face. Results last about six months or more.
