How Fillers Can Help Bring Back Volume to Your Face

As you get older, you may notice changes in your face that result from the loss of fat beneath your skin. This is a normal part of aging, and it can also occur as the result of environmental assaults and health conditions. Over time, this loss of skin volume, as it’s known, can give you a drawn, worn appearance that leaves you looking older than your age.

At Advanced Practice Medical Aesthetics, certified family nurse practitioner Patty Stewart uses injectable fillers to restore your skin’s younger, fuller appearance. This safe, effective treatment can leave your skin looking fresher and more youthful. Here, we explain how fillers can help bring back volume, plumpness, and structure to your face.

About aging skin and injectable fillers

As skin ages and thins, and as fat layers beneath your skin diminish over time, folds, creases, sagging, and lines may appear. Your lips, cheeks, neck, and throat can develop a slack, hollow, loose appearance. You may notice lines or creases around your nose, cheeks, or mouth.

Fillers — also known as dermal fillers or injectables — are gel-like compounds injected just beneath your skin. Fillers can restore attractive volume and pleasing plumpness to areas of creasing, sagging, and hollowness.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, more than 1 million adults, both men and women, choose to have injectable dermal filler treatments each year.

State-of-the-art treatment

Patty uses Galderma injectables at Advanced Practice Medical Aesthetics because they have a proven track record and deliver outstanding results. Galderma fillers are made with safe, FDA-approved compounds such as hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance that you already have in your skin.

Getting fillers is safe and well-tolerated by most people. You relax while Patty uses the thinnest of needles to carefully inject the filler beneath your skin precisely where it’s needed. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may receive a topical numbing cream before she begins.

You see results immediately after your treatment, and treatments last for six to 18 months, depending on where you want fillers and which product Patty uses. There’s usually no downtime required after a treatment. Bruising may occur in a small number of cases; if it does, treatment with the painless ADVATx laser can diminish bruising, speed healing, and limit downtime.
