Plump Up the Volume with Dermal Fillers
Have you started to notice that your facial features aren’t looking quite as fresh and youthful as they once did? This may be due to the natural loss of volume that occurs with age and can leave you with a deflated, worn-down appearance that adds years to your face. For these men and women, as well as people with naturally thin, flat, or asymmetric features, Dr. Austin Mitchell and the experienced team at Brentwood Skin Clinic are proud to offer injectable dermal fillers in Nashville, TN.
What are fillers?
The term “fillers” refers to a class of cosmetic injectables designed to add volume to certain features and/or smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles. At Brentwood Skin Clinic, we offer the widely popular JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® filler collections, which are extremely versatile and can be used to address a wide variety of unique concerns. Both JUVÉDERM and Restylane are hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers, which are formulated to stimulate the body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid for a more natural look and flexibility. Additionally, HA fillers can be dissolved if needed or desired.
Where can fillers be used?
Dermal fillers can help to restore lost volume, reshape certain features, or smooth out wrinkles across the face and body. Some of the most common treatment areas for injectable dermal fillers include:
- Sunken circles beneath the eyes
- Hollow cheeks
- Thin lips
- Weak jawline
- Setback chin
- Asymmetric nose
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Lip lines
- Aged hands
How much volume can be added with fillers?
The right amount of filler product for you will depend on where the injections are being used, your desired outcome, and other factors. While fillers can be used to create either subtle or dramatic changes, patients desiring a significant boost in volume — in the lips, for example — should keep in mind that it may take multiple rounds of injections to achieve their ideal look, as there is a limit to how much filler the skin can accommodate at one time. Over multiple rounds of treatment, however, it may be possible to stretch the skin slightly to allow additional filler to be injected. During your initial consultation, our providers will thoroughly discuss your concerns and goals and recommend the most appropriate amount of filler for you.
How long do filler results last?
Some fillers last longer than others, and some people naturally break down fillers quicker than other patients. Still, on average, patients can expect their injectable filler results to last for about 9 – 12 months — sometimes longer — before they may see a noticeable return of lines or volume loss. In many cases, patients report that their JUVÉDERM and Restylane results begin to last a little bit longer each time after they have undergone several rounds of injections. With consistent treatments, dermal fillers can help keep you looking younger and feeling more confident for years to come.
