Best Dermal Fillers & Sculptra® Injections in Miami
What is an injectable dermal filler?
As our skin matures, the underlying youthful fullness gives way to noticeable creases and folds that cause us to appear tired and older than we feel. This is caused by a gradual loss of supporting skin structures that give strength, fullness, and integrity to the skin. Also, acne breakouts can leave deep scars that can detract from an otherwise smooth complexion. At the Skin Center of South Miami, we use a variety of injectable fillers to restore a more youthful look.
Why are dermal fillers used?
A natural, youthful face is full and not tight. Over time and due to exposure to things like the sun, skin imperfections can occur. Although the upper face can be easily rejuvenated with Botox®, the lower face is less responsive and requires a different set of filling injections, such as Sculptra®. These include lip injections/lip fillers, cheek fillers, under eye fillers, and other face fillers.
What Issues are Dermal Fillers Used to Treat?
Age-related changes in the lips, mouth, and face that may improve with the use of dermal fillers include:
- Lip thinning
- Downturn of the corners of the mouth
- Deep creases along the sides of the nose
- Lines and wrinkles in the forehead
- Skin depressions
Fillers can improve the appearance of noticeable lines and wrinkles, exaggerated skin folds and acne scars. Some dermal fillers can enhance and accentuate the lip contours to give a stunning look to otherwise unremarkable, plain, or thin lips. Other injections can restore the overall volume to sunken facial features that accompany the aging process. Below are some of the common filling treatments available at the Skin Center of South Miami.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin. It is made up of microspheres (a spherical shell) of poly-L-lactic acid, a material similar to that used in dissolvable sutures. Because poly-L-lactic acid is the main ingredient in Sculptra®, patients do not require a test for allergic reactions. Unlike other filler treatments such as Restylane®, Perlane® or Juvederm®, treatment with Sculptra® does not result in an immediate effect. Sculptra® takes time to gradually correct skin depressions by stimulating the formation of collagen by the cells in the lower layer of skin. Multiple treatment sessions are usually required at monthly intervals to achieve the desired result.
What does facial filler treatment involve?
During a short in-office procedure, one of our experienced injectable filler physicians will inject a small amount of the dermal filler just beneath your skin. In most cases, this takes a matter of minutes to perform and you can continue your regular daily activities shortly after. Most patients visiting our office periodically for filler treatments, which vary in the length they will last depending on the exact type of filler you use. One of our knowledgeable dermatologists at the Skin Center of South Miami will spend time evaluating your skin and determining the best filler options for your needs. At that time, your doctor will walk you through exactly what you can expect during treatment.
