What Are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers have revolutionized the approach to improving facial appearance. These treatments can correct asymmetry, minimize circles under the eyes, improve acne scars, and reverse the appearance of aging. Injectable treatments are an enticing alternative to more invasive surgical treatments such as face lifts and can produce noticeable results in less than one hour. Fillers improve the contours of the skin, giving patients a well-rested, youthful appearance. These products work by stimulating collagen production and adding volume to the skin. Almost all visible signs of aging can be improved with the use of fillers.
The Skin Renewal Center offers four different types of facial fillers, each of which have unique properties that allow Dr. McNamara to tailor the treatment to meet each patient’s distinct aesthetic needs.
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable treatment that can restore volume and smooth away wrinkles for up to one year. This product consists of a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid which restores volume and hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic acid levels decrease with age, leading to a loss of elasticity and volume. By adding this substance to the skin, JUVÉDERM® effectively reduces signs of aging while simultaneously producing natural results. JUVÉDERM® is used at our Houston practice to target several areas of the face, and is ideal for patients who wish to smooth away wrinkles near the mouth, eliminate marionettes lines and nasolabial folds, or enhance the lips. Dr. McNamara has extensive experience with JUVÉDERM® and other facial fillers, which allows him to precisely place the filler and achieve aesthetically pleasing results.
Radiesse® is a non-toxic, non-allergenic filler that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin folds around the mouth and nose by replenishing collagen levels in the skin. Collagen levels naturally decrease with age, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines. Radiesse® creates immediate correction of deep lines and wrinkles and continues to stimulate collagen production for several months after treatment. Therefore, Radiesse® has been clinically proven to last more than one year even after just one treatment, and up to two years if touch-up appointments are scheduled. Radiesse® can be used to target some of the most common signs of aging, including crows' feet, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Although minor swelling and bruising may occur after treatment, patients can expect to see results from Radiesse® injections almost immediately.
Artefill is considered to be the most long-lasting facial filler because it consists of unique microspheres that are not absorbed by the body but actually work with the skin to provide structure for collagen growth. These microspheres are a substance known as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), which is the same material used for lens replacement after cataract surgery. After the initial injection, Artefill acts as a lattice on which collagen intersperses and is maintained. It is the only “permanent” filler that is approved by the FDA for use in correcting nasolabial folds. Like JUVÉDERM® and other fillers, Artefill is injected into the skin during a simple appointment at our Houston office. Patients with deeper facial folds may opt to receive several injections over a few months to achieve their specific aesthetic goals.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is administered as a series of three treatments over several months, and is ideal for patients who prefer a subtle improvement in appearance over time. Dr. McNamara has been administering Sculptra® Aesthetic for more than a decade and has helped thousands of patients improve their appearance and confidence with the use of this treatment. Sculptra® Aesthetic enhances collagen production to enhance the volume of the skin. It therefore effectively reduces the appearance of deep facial folds and wrinkles.
The contour of the body is not just affected by an excess of body fat. Sometimes it is a lack of volume that detracts from a patient’s appearance. Fat injections allow Dr. McNamara to add volume to areas of the body that lack appealing curves and contours. Fat injections are well-tolerated by patients and produce more natural and longer-lasting results than cosmetic fillers, making them the ideal choice for improving body contouring for our Houston patients.
