Are you spending a fortune on creams and gels to build a comprehensive facial care regimen? It might be time to invest in fillers, which can significantly reduce the appearance of many fine lines and wrinkles and give you the youthful glow you’ve been craving.
New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, led by Dr. Surinder Sandhu, provides a variety of injectable fillers to give you the look you desire. Here’s what you should know about fillers and why they might be right for you.
Unlike Botox, which addresses dynamic wrinkles (the ones formed when you smile, frown, laugh, or squint), fillers work on the tiny lines and wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage. Some of the most popular types of fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance produced naturally by the human body.
These nonsurgical injectable fillers deliver stimulation directly under the surface of damaged skin, boosting the production of collagen and elastin and working to plump out fine lines and wrinkles for that fresh, dewy look associated with youth. It’s a much more natural effect than a surgical facelift.
At New Image Med Spa, we use the Juvéderm® line of hyaluronic acid gel fillers, especially for deeper lines and wrinkles running from the nose to the mouth, and for the lines that appear around the lips due to photoaging and/or nicotine use.
If you have many fine lines and wrinkles across the surface of your face, deeper static lines or wrinkles, and lip lines that fan out from the mouth, now could be the best time to invest in fillers. You can refresh and rejuvenate your skin and your look, restore plumpness to your lips, and enhance the natural beauty of your face while taking years off of your appearance.
Our team will work with you to help figure out which areas of your face need attention and determine how much filler will be required to deliver the look you desire. We have three types of Juvéderm fillers, each of which is designed for a different area of the face or type of skin.
An HA filler treatment isn’t a one-and-done kind of process. It’s an investment you make in your appearance and does require maintenance over time, with new injections anywhere from every few months to once a year. This will help keep your skin hydrated and fresh, while continually building collagen and elastin to replace what is being lost to the aging process.
If you’re nervous about needles, you don’t have to be. The injectable needles are extremely thin and tiny, and they aren’t inserted very deeply. Our team is committed to making you comfortable and can apply a numbing agent first if you're worried about discomfort. After each treatment, a simple cold pack can relieve any lingering tenderness.
