Many women and men visit Dr. Robert DeAngelis for dermal fillers to achieve a more youthful facial look and enhance their appearance. He uses the following fillers:
Fillers are used to correct and treat Facial folds and wrinkles such as forehead creases or frown lines (glabellar lines), marionette lines, and smile lines (nasolabial folds), and Crow’s feet (periorbital lines). They can be used to:
- Smooth Wrinkled skin
- Volumize the skin
- Fill in acne and other scars
- Enhance the chin and jaw line
- Treat cheek lines
Restylane® is used not only to fill in wrinkles, scars and folds but it can provide a mini-facelift by enhancing and filling in the cheek hollows, under eye hollows, cheek bones, chin and mid-face areas. The lips and earlobes are also wonderful areas for Restylane® enhancement. Restylane® is a stabilized non-animal hyaluronic acid gel and is non-allergenic so skin testing is not necessary and it can be used immediately. It can safely be used on people allergic to collagen.
Injectable fillers like Radiesse® are populare with our patients because they are so quick and convenient. Treatments typically take less than 15 minutes and there is usually no recovery time required. The improvements from Radiesse® can last between 1 and 2 years.
Sculptra® is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus. Sculptra® is a sculpting agent that restores volume to correct the signs of lipoatrophy. It is a safe, synthetic and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss, so no skin testing is required. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
