As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, folds, and creases that all contribute to an older looking face. Many women and men in their 50’s and 60’s choose to have a facelift from facial plastic surgeon Nathan E. Nachlas, M.D. before more dramatic skin sagging and wrinkling shows up. But long before that point, noticeable signs of aging start to appear, and many people want facial rejuvenation options that do not involve surgery. Dr. Nachlas understands that looking young and vibrant plays an essential role in your self-image, so he features less invasive treatment options to give your face a naturally rested and refreshed appearance.
Dr. Nachlas is always happy to provide a more conservative approach to facial rejuvenation if it will achieve your desired results without surgery. Injectable fillers are an effective, quick, and affordable option for women and men who want to look younger but who are not ready to consider surgery. These very popular cosmetic treatments can address a wide range of concerns, including fine lines, deep folds, and areas that could use some volume enhancement, such as the lips or cheeks.
Dr. Nachlas is double-board certified by both the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Academy of Otolaryngology and offers non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Nachlas offers three very popular, safe, and effective injectable filler options at his Boca Raton office: Restylane®, Radiesse® and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Both of these products are made from non-animal-derived hyaluronic acid – a substance that naturally exists in the human body. These products are biocompatible and biodegradable, which means that they are safe for the body and that the body naturally eliminates them over time. There is no allergy testing required, and skin smoothing results are immediate.
- Radiesse is a long-lasting, semi-permanent filler, Radiesse has been found to be an excellent option for correcting deep wrinkles, creases and for replacing lost volume in the aging face. Allergic reactions are almost unheard of and satisfaction rates are very high. In some patients it]]Radiesse is being used as a substitute for a surgical procedure. Results last on average 9-12 months.
- JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a leading dermal filler from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. This is a smooth-consistency, hyaluronic acid gel which adds volume and hydration to wrinkles or creases in the skin. The most popular use for JUVÉDERM is the treatment of nasolabial folds or “smile lines” that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Results from JUVÉDERM typically last about 9 months or more.
- Restylane is a very popular facial filler for adding volume and fullness to areas that need “plumping up.” Patients typically use Restylane for lip augmentation, wrinkle treatment, and smoothing out acne scars. Restylane results typically last 6 months or more, with improved results often reported after regularly scheduled treatments.
Your Injectable Filler Treatment
With these dermal fillers, treatment involves injecting a small amount of the product just under the skin at the site of the wrinkle, scar, or area to be augmented. Dr. Nachlas’s extensive experience and knowledge of the facial anatomy allows him to make subtle enhancements that are never overdone or obvious. The entire treatment usually takes only 15 to 30 minutes, with results that are immediately visible. There is usually a bit of redness and swelling at the injection site, but in general patients are able to return to work or normal activities immediately. Some patients report that regularly scheduled dermal filler treatments produce longer lasting, more effective wrinkle reduction.
Injectable fillers should be administered only by an experienced medical professional such as Dr. Nachlas, who is a renowned facial plastic surgeon.
