Our bodies produce less collagen every year after our twentieth birthday. Collagen is responsible for providing our skin’s underlying structural support. Loss of collagen, along with sun damage and other factors, leaves our face with areas of volume loss. This volume loss can be seen in sunken cheeks, a downturned smile, creases and lines, and an overall older appearance. When a filler is injected beneath a crease, such as a smile line, the filler simply returns volume to the area, pushing the skin back upwards and erasing the crease.
Dermal fillers can replace volume to the following areas of concern:
- Nasolabial lines (smile lines)
- Marionette lines (downturned smile)
- Perioral lines (vertical lines above the lips)
- Sunken cheeks
- Tear troughs (under eyes)
- Covering tendons and blood vessels on the backs of the hands
At Robertson Cosmetic Center, we have a collection of dermal fillers that can be used to replace Volume loss. One of our Aesthetic Nurse Injectors will create a custom treatment plan with you to best achieve your desired results.
We offer all five dermal fillers in the Juvéderm® family. Each filler is hyaluronic acid-based and is intended to address different areas of the face and replace volume. Juvéderm® results last up to one year, except for Vollure™ which lasts up to 18 months, and Voluma which lasts up to two years.
We offer four dermal fillers in the Restylane® family. Like Juvederm®, Restylane fillers are hyaluronic acid-based and are intended for different areas of the face to replace volume. Restylane has NASHA and XpresHAn technology to produce fillers that are both firm and flexible to give a natural look that lasts. All Restylane products last up to 1 year or longer.
Sculptra® Aesthetic, or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is a unique facial injectable that replaces collagen lost during the aging process. Sculptra® Aesthetic is the only volumizer scientifically designed to stimulate natural collagen growth and can last more than two years. Unlike traditional dermal fillers that only address wrinkles, lines and folds, Sculptra® Aesthetic works differently to stimulate growth of your own natural collagen to treat the underlying causes of facial aging.
