Getting a youthful and well-proportioned face is quite literally a matter of balance – it’s about having more volume in some areas than in others. Facial fillers are the most popular way to achieve the volume you want. These injectables mimic your natural tissue, filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows. They’re also being studied and improved constantly to provide better, more precise, and longer-lasting results. To celebrate the latest advancements, two of our experienced board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta are hosting a special savings event this month featuring three new developments in the world of facial fillers.
Restylane® is one of the most well-known and popular brand names for facial fillers. It’s ideal for wrinkles around the mouth, like the nasolabial folds, laugh lines (or “parentheses”), and marionette lines. As successful as the original Restylane® has been, the researchers at Galderma (the manufacturer) are constantly finding ways to improve it and to make similar products for other areas.
Restylane® Refyne™ is their latest innovation. Made for the same areas of the face as original Restylane®, Refyne™ is a more flexible molecular arrangement. This allows the patient to continue making all their facial expressions in a way that looks and feels more natural.
It’s common for new filler patients to be concerned about whether they can be as expressive as they’ve always been. While fillers don’t affect the expressive muscles like Botox® injections do, some patients have difficulty getting used to their new youthful volume, and Restylane® Refyne™ answers this need with a gentler look that is more like natural facial tissue.
Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC
Like Restylane®, Juvéderm® is a household name. Both products are made with hyaluronic acid (or HA) and they’re designed for the same areas of the face, but their latest innovations are quite different. While Restylane® has aimed for a more natural look and feel, Juvéderm®’s new filler is all about longevity.
Designed for moderate to severe facial wrinkles like the nasolabial folds Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC is the first HA filler FDA-approved to treat wrinkles in this area for up to 18 months. Before Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC, the longest a patient could expect their HA fillers to last was one year, with some fillers lasting just 6-9 months.
As quick and convenient as a facial filler treatment is (usually performed in 15-30 minutes with no downtime other than occasional temporary swelling and redness), it’s still time out of your busy schedule. For many patients, Juvéderm® Vollure™ saves them time and money on the same great results they’ve enjoyed with more frequent treatments.
AQUAGOLD® fine touch™
While Restylane® Refyne™ and Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC are facial fillers, AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is a new treatment for administering fillers, Botox®, growth factors, and other products. It uses an innovative technique called microchanneling. With tiny, painless needles thinner than a human hair, AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ delivers product to the deeper layers of the skin.
Here’s the beauty of the treatment, though: it’s completely customizable. One of our experienced board-certified dermatologists or physician assistants will design a solution that’s perfect for your needs. It can include facial fillers (which give a natural-looking, subtle plumping effect to reduce fine lines and wrinkles), growth factors or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate collagen, specialized serums, Botox® or Dysport®, hair restoration medications, and more.
