Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, offer a safe, quick, and effective way to address several cosmetic concerns. With injectable fillers, a softer and more youthful look can be produced – and all without incisions, surgical risks, or a lengthy recovery period. Most dermal fillers require little to no downtime at all, enabling you to get back to normal right after treatment, with results becoming fully apparent within 24-hours to two weeks.
Facial fillers can be used to address issues including:
- Fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Folds and creases
- Hollowness underneath the eyes
- Sunken cheeks
- Collapsed temples
- General skin laxity
Injectable fillers increase volume and plump the skin to produce a fuller, vibrant, and lifted appearance. Some can also be used to improve the shape and symmetry of the lips and even rejuvenate the appearance of the back of the hands. Safe for nearly all patients, dermal fillers can be used to address multiple concerns at the same time and many will produce results for 12 or more months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Xeomin®
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® are not dermal fillers. Dermal fillers address static wrinkles, those that are present regardless of facial expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® address dynamic wrinkles, those that occur when you smile, frown, and otherwise emote.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® work by relaxing the muscles underneath wrinkles, helping to eliminate things like crow’s feet and frown lines. Dermal fillers increase elements essential for healthy skin, such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, to improve volume. These treatments are intended for different concerns, but can often be used in combination to correct issues throughout the face.
Board-certified Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata offers both injectable fillers and BOTOX® and Xeomin® treatments, enabling him to meet the varied needs of the individual patient. If you are considering non-surgical skin rejuvenation, he would be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your problem areas, and suggest the best solutions for your needs.
