Aging appears differently and at a unique pace for every person. At some point, we all notice the effects of sun exposure and the loss of elasticity that leads to flattened features and droopiness. As the skin loses support from collagen fibers, hollows may develop beneath the eyes, and fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Fortunately, the limitations on restoring a youthful facial appearance have been reduced significantly. If you want to renew your appearance, you are not locked in to plastic surgery. In many cases, the expert use of dermal fillers can lead to beautiful results.
A natural approach to reversing the hands of time
One of the appealing aspects of dermal fillers such as Restylane is the immediate revival of youthfulness. However, some people would like to age in reverse as subtly as they progressed. In such instances Sculptra is ideal. This proven product has been developed specifically for the correction of lines and wrinkles through collagen rebuilding. Rather than filling lines and creases with hyaluronic acid, Sculptra works with the body to encourage the production of supportive collagen.
As the collagen matrix beneath the skin strengthens day by day, patients notice a subtle, progressive improvement of rejuvenation. Multiple treatments may be scheduled to achieve optimal results, with renewed youthfulness lasting up to two years.
Belotero dermal filler
Belotero is a soft tissue filler developed to minimize the appearance of laugh lines, smoker’s lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and more. This product is also sometimes used to rejuvenate the skin on the hands and for natural looking augmentation of the cheeks or lips. A hyaluronic acid filler, Belotero nicely complements other fillers as well as Botox. Results from treatment last up to nine months.

The skin is one of the first areas that we notice the signs of aging. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. men and women seeking facial rejuvenation benefit from the thoroughness of care they receive. Our board-certified dermatologists understand the structures that support youthful skin. By making use of products for wrinkle-reduction and volume restoration, our physicians have helped a number of patients regain confidence in their appearance. If you want to know more about non-surgical facial rejuvenation, call to speak with us about the benefits of cosmetic injectables.
Some of the common wrinkle-reducing treatments used today include Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane. Our physicians have been thoroughly trained in the use of each, and can identify the right product for the best results.
These three products are all based on hyaluronic acid, though each may be better suited to particular concerns or areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers allow us to create the most personalized treatment plan for each patient, right down to the tiniest detail.
Within the Juvéderm family alone are several products formulated to address the issue of volume loss. This natural occurrence takes place as our natural production of hyaluronic acid drops. After about the age of 30, we lose as much as a teaspoon of fluid and fatty tissue beneath the skin each year. In time, this translates into flatter cheeks, drooping jowls, nasolabial folds around the nose, and marionette lines around the mouth.
Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane have been important products in aesthetic medicine for many years. We are proud to provide solutions that achieve beautiful, natural looking results. These hyaluronic acid based fillers are gentle to tissues, mimicking the substance what once existed throughout the body in large amounts. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar compound that can hold thousands of times its weight in water. Its presence is important to joints, the eyes, and the skin. When injected just beneath the skin’s surface, hyaluronic acid binds to water to plump lines and wrinkles and improve contours.
Our use of each of our soft tissue products is determined by patient need, the severity of laxity, and several other factors. Restylane is a product that we may use to fill superficial lines. Deeper creases and extensive volume loss may be treated with Juvéderm or Perlane. Recently, Juvéderm added Voluma XC to its product line, giving us an effective way to treat volume loss in the cheeks.
With the variety of options to address the signs of aging, it is even more important to consult with an experienced physician about your concerns. Call Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. in Sterling / South Riding.
