Today you don’t have to let facial wrinkles, creases, and folds give away your age. Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomon offers a variety of skin rejuvenation treatments to improve the appearance, texture, and tone of your skin. Quick, effective dermal fillers can give your face a more youthful look without surgery.
IMPROVEMENTS FROM FILLERS IN OUR PHILADELPHIA PLASTIC SURGERY OFFICE
Many women and men are looking for an easy way to maintain or enhance their facial appearance and build collagen. Our selection of modern dermal fillers is a popular choice for people who visit our Philadelphia plastic surgery office. These temporary, non-surgical treatments are effective for:
- Filling in creases, wrinkles, and folds around the eyes, lips, mouth, and forehead
- Adding fullness to the lips
- Smoothing recessed scars, such as those caused by acne or chicken pox
- Delaying facial plastic surgery such as face lift or brow lift
After discussing your goals and performing a brief examination, Dr. Solomon will customize a treatment plan to help you achieve the look you desire. Some patients benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments instead of, or in conjunction with, dermal fillers. For patients with more advanced wrinkling or poor skin elasticity, Dr. Solomon might recommend a facial rejuvenation cosmetic surgery procedure.
TYPES OF FILLERS
Board certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomon offers the following popular dermal fillers that can temporarily improve and rejuvenate the look of your face:
- Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body that gives skin fullness and volume. These synthetic fillers are biocompatible, so allergy tests are not required. Improvements last about 3 to 6 months.
- Radiesse®, which contains calcium hydroxyapatite, is especially effective for treating deep creases and wrinkles, and filling in recessed scars. It may stimulate the production of new collagen for enhanced skin tone. No allergy tests are required. Long-lasting improvements from Radiesse usually remain between 6 to 12 months.
- Sculptra® is a unique way to fill out the face and enhance your appearance without surgery. It requires several sessions and has been called a “liquid facelift.” Results may last up to one year.
- Fat Injections, also called autologous fat transfers, use excess fat collected from one area of the body to fill in another. This safe, natural, non-allergenic filler can enhance the face and hands. Although the body usually absorbs a significant amount of the transferred fat, the remaining fat can last for about 3 years.
PROCEDURE & RECOVERY
Convenience is a significant reason dermal fillers are so appealing to our patients. Dr. Solomon performs these simple injections in his Philadelphia plastic surgery office, usually without anesthetic, in under an hour. There is typically no recovery time required, though some patients might have minor swelling and bruising for a day or two after treatment.
