Face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body. Signs of aging will show more conspicuously on the face, and can make a person appear older, tired or angry. A wide range of medical spa dermal filler injections are available today to address these aging signs without involving surgery.
Juvederm and Radiesse are two of the popular, FDA approved facial fillers designed to restore a smoother and more youthful looking facial skin. Patients with mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles can benefit from Juvederm filler, while those with deeper facial folds and creases may be appropriate candidates for Radiesse dermal filler.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss the advantages of both Juvederm and Radiesse, and recommend the appropriate choice according to the patient’s unique cosmetic goals. The sagacious and remarkable Dr. Gregg Reger of Reger Vein and Skin Specialists provides dermal fillers to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities across the horizon.
Juvederm is one of the most popular dermal filler injections available today. The filler is completely biocompatible because of its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring compound in the body. HA performs the role of holding the skin together from within.
As the natural HA depletes in the body due to aging or other factors, it can be replenished by injecting it through Juvederm filler gel in the deeper layers of the skin. The filler gel will instantly add volume to the depleted areas and plump up the skin to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Juvederm injectable medical spa treatment can produce natural looking results that will last for about six months to one year. Just one in-office treatment is usually required, and it can improve areas such as the mouth, nose and forehead most effectively.
Other benefits of Juvederm include enhancement of facial contours, reduction of acne scar appearance, and lip augmentation.
Patients who have significantly sagging facial skin, leading to deeper folds, creases and wrinkles around the nose and mouth can benefit from Radiesse dermal filler. This advanced filler is designed to correct deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and laugh lines. The active ingredient in Radiesse gel is calcium hydroxylapatite, which is also a biocompatible material.
Microspheres of this calcium compound are suspended in a gel to produce a more sustainable impact. The stability of the active agents in Radiesse is high, and as a result the gel does not rapidly disintegrate once it is injected. In the first three months after the injections, Radiesse gel will work to volumize the skin and mitigate aging effects.
Thereafter, Radiesse microspheres will help stimulate the production of fresh collagen in the deeper skin layers. With new tissue regeneration through this process, the anti-aging results of Radiesse can last for up to 24 months. This advanced filler can also improve chin dimples, scars and facial lipatrophy.
Minor cheek and chin augmentation can also be achieved with Radiesse medical spa treatment. Dr. Reger receives patients from Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and other cities and towns in The Lone Star State for dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse.
