Dermal fillers add volume to the skin. While different formulations provide specific benefits, most dermal fillers help to restore volume by stimulating the body's production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Although temporary, the benefits from dermal fillers can last for several months, providing a fuller, softer, and more youthful appearance all the while.
Dr. Brueck offers a range of dermal filler options, including options from JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, two families of hyaluronic acid fillers known for their safety, efficacy, and versatility. Depending on the formulation, these and similar fillers can be used to:
- Lift droopy cheeks and sagging jowls
- Add volume and firmness to depressed tear troughs
- Bring fullness back to the temples
- Erase fine lines and deep wrinkles around the lips and mouth
- Create ideally symmetrical and perfectly plump lips
Some Restylane formulations can also be used on the back of the hands, adding volume and covering exposed veins and tendons to restore a significantly more youthful look to the hands.
Dermal fillers can address various kinds of wrinkles and folds throughout the face, but are not very effective on dynamic wrinkles, such as crow's feet and bunny lines, which occur with facial movement. Fortunately, another non-surgical option, wrinkle relaxers, can be used for this purpose.
Dr. Brueck offers by BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® to address issues such as crow's feet, bunny lines, smokers’ lines, nasolabial folds, forehead creases, frown lines, pebbly chin, and neck bands. Like fillers, the results from relaxers are temporary, typically lasting for three to six months. And similar to fillers, returning to our office at regularly scheduled intervals can help to ensure continuous results.
There is little to no recovery time required for fillers and wrinkle relaxers. Many people come to us for lunchtime treatments, returning to their day as soon as injection is complete. Equally exciting, fillers offer immediate and progressively improving results, allowing for complete revitalization within just a few weeks of treatment.
Dermal fillers offer several benefits. However, the best way to learn how they apply to you is through a consultation at Dr. Brueck's Ft. Myers, Punta Gorda, or Cape Coral office. Please call 239-939-5233 to schedule your appointment today.
