What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers, sometimes called injectable implants, soft tissue fillers or wrinkle fillers, are designed to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face. Dermal fillers are used to treat midface contour deficiencies and target the area known as the nasolabial folds near your nose and mouth, as well as the cheeks, chin, lips and back of the hands to restore volume loss. Volume loss occurs as a result of aging.
Dermal fillers can contain a variety of substances, including naturally occurring and synthetic compounds. One of the most common ingredients used in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). This naturally occurring substance is found in the skin and plays a critical role in keeping your skin hydrated and plump.
Over time, the body absorbs many dermal fillers, so individuals choosing injectables will need maintenance visits to maintain results. Dermal fillers can last six months to a year or more, depending on what type of filler you choose.
Restylane® Lyft, formally known as Perlane®, is an FDA approved injectable hyaluronic gel filler containing lidocaine that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). The gel particles in Restylane® Lyft are larger and Restylane® Lyft is a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection in the skin.
Restylane Lyft is also FDA approved for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface volume loss.
Restylane® Lyft is part of the Galderma family of products that include Restylane, Restylane Silk, Sculptra and Dsyport. The patient rewards program can be found at Aspire Rewards.
Jack Peterson MD is one of the first in Kansas to offer these exciting new fillers! Restylane Refyne and Defyne are next-generation flexible hyaluronic acid fillers that help smooth the appearance of wrinkles and deep-set expression lines while still maintaining a natural look. Made with XpresHAn technology, these new fillers are FDA-approved to treat nasolabial folds, or “laugh lines.” They provide a range of flexibility and support to meet different patient needs. While Refyne is designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds, Defyne is designed to smooth deeper facial wrinkles and folds. The flexible gel allows these fillers to move with your skin, giving your expressions a softer and more natural appearance.
