Dermal Fillers

Jump to: JUVÉDERM Voluma XC | Blunt Tip Cannula

If you are looking for a non-surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables JUVÉDERM are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression.

As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.

Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers approved by the FDA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling which are usually very minimal and resolve quickly.

Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment

At Ageless MD we offer JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM Voluma, JUVÉDERM Volbella, JUVÉDERM Vollure, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Restylane. Ask your medical provider about which of these fillers will be best suited for you.

 

JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC


A new FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the mid face around the cheeks and chin, providing immediate lift. It’s all too common as we age to start to notice sunken cheeks and a thinner appearance in the mid-face area. Voluma is designed to help restore youthful contours by plumping up these areas of volume loss caused by the aging process.

Please call 1 (888) 885-1901 if you’re ready to learn more about smoothing away wrinkles with JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC. Dr. TJ Tsay is a leading provider of cosmetic injectable treatments in the Orange County Area and performs dozens of these procedures every month. Voluma™, from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a safe and effective treatment, with a fuller appearance usually lasting between 12 to 18 months. The active ingredient in Voluma™ is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance produced in your own skin that gives it a youthful look. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease in our skin, causing our facial features to appear sunken with volume loss. JUVÉDERM Voluma™ is a great way to restore volume to the face and rejuvenate the skin for a naturally youthful appearance. Voluma™ is an excellent treatment for both men and women who are showing signs of aging and would benefit from facial contouring and restoring natural volume.

Dr. TJ Tsay also can use JUVÉDERM Voluma™ to elevate the nasal bridge, give you a new chin, or augment your cheeks to help you with the contouring on your cheeks. Dr. Tsay can also use JUVÉDERM Voluma™ pull up your nasolabial folds, as well as tighten the jaw and neckline. There is no downtime after the injections and you can resume all normal activities as soon as you leave the office. Some patients may have some local bruising or redness after injections, which can happen after any facial injections. If you’re frustrated with a sunken look where you used to have round, rosy cheeks, there’s finally a nonsurgical solution that can help. Please call 1 (888) 885-1901 if you’re ready to learn more about smoothing away wrinkles with JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC.

Blunt Tip Cannula

For fillers—Imported from Europe. Game changer for Filler injections. Anyone not using some form of blunt tip cannula injection in their practice is not practicing with the patient’s best interests in mind.

 

 

Blunt-tip Microcannula

Also called blunt-tipped cannula or simply blunt needle is a small tube, with an edge that is not sharp, designed for less traumatic injections of fillers such as JUVÉDERM, Radiesse, Restylane and Belotero.

Because the blunt-tip cannula is not sharp, the risk of bruising is significantly reduced. The cannula finds the path of least resistance through the tissues, avoiding capillaries and blood vessels that otherwise (with sharp needle injection) could be punctured, causing bruising and swelling. Blunt cannulas have revolutionized dermal filler corrections to make them safer, less painful, and with less downtime. No need for lips to be bruised for 2 weeks after a filler injection.

Sculptra

What Is Sculptra®

Sculptra® is a safe FDA approved non-surgical cosmetic treatment for reducing facial lines and wrinkles and created a fuller, more youthful appearance to your face. Sculptra® works by stimulating your body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. Your own collagen fills in the line and wrinkles and also elevates the sagging skin. Unlike other fillers where your face is filled from whatever substance the filler is made up of either hyaluronic acid or some other substance, after a series of Sculptra treatments your face is filled and “plumped up” by your own bodys' collagen which is very natural looking and not “fake” looking.

An ideal client is someone who comes in and tells us: “I wish I could look like I gained 10 pounds from my neck up.” They have usually experience some dramatic weight loss from either bariatric surgery, lost a significant amount of facial fat from long distance running or biking, or just lost a lot of weight from stress that life has to offer.

Dr. Tsay can achieve excellent results with Sculptra® in the treatment of many parts of the face including the areas that are sunken in such as the submalar or hollow cheek area, concave temples, or even marionette lines and nasolabial folds. As a natural process of aging the bone density of the face—the foundation of your face— decreases which causes the resultant sagging effect of the face. Sculptra® can be injected deep and on top of the bony structures to give extra support to the bony foundation and help reinforce the infrastructure of your face. This is often neglected when considering a filler for the face and without the foundational support, any other dermal filler will not hold up without this very important structural support.

How Sculptra® Works Dr. Tsay injects Sculptra® below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss or sunken in areas. Sculptra® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness and fullness in that part of the face. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions. Sculptra® will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

How Soon Will You See Results With Sculptra Sculptra® provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds, indentations, and sunken areas in the face and neck. The results achieved by Sculptra® are natural looking and appear gradually over a few weeks time. Because Sculptra® stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, the results can last up to 2 years and longer in some cases. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect. Results may Vary.

What To Expect After Treatment

Dr. Tsay will give you specific post-treatment care instructions. You should massage the treated area (a few times each day) for several days after the treatment session. Within the first 24 hours after treatment, an ice pack should be applied for a few minutes at a time to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. Wrap the ice in a cloth and avoid putting ice directly on your skin. Immediately following a treatment session with Sculptra®, redness, swelling, pain, bruising or all of these signs can happen in the treatment area. These signs usually go away in a few hours to a few days. Avoid excessive sun and UV lamp exposure until any initial swelling and redness has resolved.

How Quickly Can You Return To Daily Activities Most patients feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
