Dermal fillers are one of the quickest and most rewarding aesthetic treatments available because you immediately see the result -- a more youthful appearance. Dr. Robert Topham at Holladay, Salt Lake City Dermatology & Aesthetics offers several injectable fillers to diminish or eliminate wrinkles, plump your lips, and add volume to cheeks. If you’re ready to fight the signs of aging, call his office in Holladay, Salt Lake City, Utah, or book an appointment online to see if dermal fillers are the best option for renewing your appearance.
Everyone has a thin layer of fat just beneath their facial skin that adds volume and gives you an overall healthy appearance. Over time, this fat begins to thin out and shift downward, making cheeks look hollow, wrinkles more noticeable, and giving you a gaunt appearance. Dr. Topham can replace that fatty layer and restore a more youthful appearance by injecting dermal fillers under the skin.
Juvéderm is the name of a family of injectable dermal fillers. The Juvéderm products target different problem areas, but they’re all gels that contain hyaluronic acid as their primary ingredient.
Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, so the Juvéderm products are safe for you to use. Hyaluronic acid’s job is to bind with water, moisturize skin, and add fullness and resilience.
Dr. Topham offers several Juvéderm products including:
This filler softens moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around your nose and mouth, such as parentheses lines. One injection may last up to 18 months.*
This product specifically targets age-related volume loss in your cheeks. One injection lifts cheeks, restores youthful volume, and may last two years.*
Radiesse boosts volume using tiny, smooth spheres of calcium mixed in a gel. You gain the immediate volume, plus the microspheres stimulate collagen production, which gradually replaces old skin with renewed, strong skin. Your results may last up to a year or longer.*
Radiesse can be injected into your hands to restore lost volume and minimize the appearance of tendons and veins. When used on your face, Radiesse diminishes moderate to severe wrinkles such as:
Belotero is another hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that’s thinner than the others, so it integrates into the natural structure of your skin. Belotero was formulated this way so that it could be injected closer to the skin’s surface, where it can gently fill in the moderate to severe wrinkles that develop above and below your lips and around your mouth and eyes.
Belotero may last six months or longer but it depends on where it was injected.* If you use it around your mouth, normal movement when you eat, talk and smile can shorten the duration of your results.
*Individual results may vary.
