What are some effective and popular fillers?
How It Works
Collagen is a natural protein that supports your skin, keeping it firm and elastic. As skin ages it becomes thinner and less resilient because existing collagen has weakened and less new collagen is being produced. Similar to traditional San Diego collagen treatments, injectable fillers can be an effective way to add volume to facial features and smooth out facial wrinkles and creases for a naturally younger-looking face.The injectable fillers most commonly used at our Chula Vista and San Diego practice include Restylane, JUVÉDERM, and RADIESSE®. RADIESSE is made from calcium-based microspheres that work to stimulate the production of new collagen. Restylane and JUVÉDERM are made of hyaluronic acid – a substance that already occurs naturally in your body – and hydrate, add volume and reduce the visibility of facial wrinkles.Each filler has unique benefits and can address a variety of skin types and concerns. At Nowak Aesthetics, we offer a full range of choices, including fat transfer – a process that uses your own body fat as a filler.
What to Expect
Injectable fillers are administered using a tiny needle, with just topical anesthetic, local anesthetic or ice applied to increase comfort. No downtime is necessary, so you can return to work or play immediately. Results are generally visible immediately and last from three months to one year, depending upon the filler you choose.Our patients who have enjoyed success with injectable fillers have also had excellent results with other services such as Thermage®, and Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing.
