The hallmark of youth is smooth, plump, radiant skin. If your skin shows signs of aging, a facial filler may be just the solution you’re looking for. Here at Parkway Plastic Surgery, we offer four of the top fillers available.
Facial fillers work by literally filling in the contours and crevices that form as our skin ages, loses moisture and firmness, and yields to the effects of gravity. They’re administered via injections and active ingredients typically are natural substances that are safely absorbed by the body. When expertly administered, they’re highly effective for smoothing wrinkles and folds; adding volume to the lips, cheeks and areas around the eyes; and improving the appearance of acne scars.
Among the top-quality facial fillers offered by Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery are:
- Restylane: The first FDA-approved facial filler made with hyaluronic acid, a fluid carbohydrate that’s naturally occurring in your body’s connective tissue, skin, muscles and tendons.
- Juvederm: Very similar to Restylane, Juvederm is made with a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. Some physicians and patients find that Juvederm has a more overall smoothing effect, while Restylane is more effective for highly localized treatment, particularly the lower eyelids or tear trough hollow under the eyes.
- Radiesse: Made with calcium-based microspheres encased in a natural gel, Radiesse can actually help to stimulate your body’s production of collagen for longer-lasting effects.
- Selphyl: Known as the “vampire face lift,” the Selphyl system uses your body’s own blood platelets, making it a top choice for patients who are leery of injecting fully foreign substances into their skin. When used with fat-grafting procedures, Selphyl can improve fat cell survival, which can lead to longer-lasting results.
