Specialized Techniques with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are not just a great option for treating wrinkles and replacing volume loss. They are also used to contour the face. Many patients in Cleveland have found success with improving asymmetry, lifting the eyebrows, shaping the chin, or correcting nose irregularities by receiving dermal fillers.
Liquid Eyebrow Lift
A brow lift using dermal fillers, or a liquid brow lift, is a great option for patients who wish to achieve the look of a surgical brow lift without any of the recovery time. During a liquid eyebrow lift, trained professionals inject fillers into specifically targeted areas of the face that lift and tighten the skin. The results of this type of procedure typically last at least 12 months.
Chin Augmentation with Fillers
Dermal fillers can change the shape of the chin without surgery. This treatment could enlarge a recessed chin, align an asymmetrical chin, or contour a chin into a more desirable shape. Although dermal fillers can shape the chin by adding to it, this technique cannot reduce its size. Results are immediate but temporary, lasting 12 to 24 months.
Liquid Nose Job
A liquid nose job is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that changes the nose’s appearance using dermal fillers. Fillers are injected into the nose to improve irregularities and asymmetry. This technique allows smaller noses to be enlarged but cannot reduce the size of a patient’s nose. Results typically last 12 to 24 months.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are multiple types of dermal fillers available in our Cleveland office, and each works in a slightly different way with varying results.
- Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid. Its treatment focuses on the face and is commonly used for liquid rhinoplasty, brow lift, and chin augmentation.
- Belotero is a hyaluronic acid and includes fillers of different consistencies for use on both fine lines and deep wrinkles.
- Versa, made by Ravenesse, is also a hyaluronic acid but with a higher molecular weight than other fillers, which may produce longer results.
- Radiesse consists of calcium-based microspheres that can improve wrinkles and folds in the face and hands. The microspheres stimulate collagen production, which can add to the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
