Dermal fillers are designed to plump aging skin – smoothing out wrinkles, filling in deep creases and enhancing an array of facial features.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels that add volume to your features and stimulate the growth of fresh collagen. They make it possible to enhance your face and sculpt full lips without a surgical procedure. As such, they are ideal for our Tucson clients who prefer a non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Larson is proud to offer an array of facial and lip fillers in Tucson to help our clients achieve the precise cosmetic outcomes they desire. Here’s a look at a few of your options, depending on the aesthetic changes you want to make:
Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid – a naturally-occurring substance that is responsible for hydration and volume. With its soft consistency, it produces extremely natural results – adding subtle volume to the lips, softening vertical lip lines, lifting and contouring aging cheeks, and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Because Juvederm can be applied close to the surface of the skin, it is particularly effective for thin areas – such as around the mouth and nose. It is a long-lasting option that can endure from one to two years, depending on the specific product used.
Restylane was the first hyaluronic acid filler to arrive on the U.S. market. As one of the leading facial and lip fillers, it is designed to add volume beneath the surface of the skin while improving the production of collagen.
As a facial filler, Restylane can improve moderate to severe nasolabial folds and smile lines. When used for lip injections, Restylane can beautifully enhance thin lips. The results last between three and twelve months, at which point you will require a maintenance session to preserve your new look.
Radiesse is designed to treat severe facial wrinkles and plump hollow cheeks. It is unique in that it places calcium-based microspheres beneath the surface of the skin to add subtle, long-lasting volume.
In addition to providing instant fullness, Radiesse also encourages your body to create fresh collagen, improving your appearance from the inside out. As a general rule, the results of Radiesse endure about one year, at which point you will need another session.
Sculptra was designed to sculpt prominent cheeks and fill in sunken, hollow areas throughout the face. Its primary ingredient is Poly-L-lactic acid, which promotes the production of fresh collagen. As such, the results appear gradually, after several sessions. The results are very long-lasting and can endure up to two years.
All facial filler appointments and Tucson lip injections are fairly similar, regardless of the specific dermal filler used. You will be seated in a comfortable, reclining chair at our Tucson office, and Dr. Larson will carefully place your chosen medication beneath the surface of your skin to smooth wrinkles, plump the lips and add natural facial volume.
The entire process lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, at which point you will be free to resume your normal daily routine. You should see your results in seven to ten days, once the filler has settled and any swelling has subsided.
