Wide selection of injectable dermal fillers suit all patients' changing needs in Walnut Creek
By Dr. Christine Lee
A powerful, popular procedure
Botox represents another type of injectable treatment. Botox, however, works by stopping the specific muscles responsible for expression lines like crow’s feet from contracting. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, may be used to soften lines and to enhance volume in areas such as the cheeks. As the filler plumps up the treatment site, it softens wrinkles in much the same manner that a balloon’s creases are pulled taut and smooth as it is inflated.
In the hands of the highly-trained dermatologists at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, injectable treatments are precisely applied for a naturally rejuvenated appearance and to minimize complications. Your safety and satisfaction are top priorities.
Dr. Lee suggests dermal fillers based on your specific needs, trouble areas, goals for improvement, personal preferences, and characteristics such as skin type and lifestyle. While Dr. Lee offers many familiar-sounding products, such as Juvéderm, she also offers some of dermatology’s lesser-known, best-kept secrets in the world of fillers. The varied options for treatment fall into a couple categories:
- Hyaluronic Acid-based Fillers - Using natural lubricants present in your body, HA products such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Hylaform safely restore youthful luminousness by restoring this beneficial, biocompatible substance.
- Collagen stimulators - Products such as Sculptra and Radiesse offer a longer-lasting way to improve the appearance of wrinkles and add volume to sunken areas because they actually stimulate the production of new, firming collagen.
