Dermal fillers have become very popular treatment choices for wrinkles in Tucson. The appearance of wrinkles and folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Some of our most popular fillers are Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvederm®. They are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. These three fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a cushioning substance that is produced naturally by our bodies. These cosmetic dermal fillers restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, giving it a healthy, youthful appearance. Commonly treated areas include the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (also called "smile lines" or nasolabial folds) and the lines going down from either side of the mouth (also called "marionette lines" or oral commissures). Some of these fillers can also be used to eliminate the "tired" look beneath the eyes or the "bags under the eyes." Lines and wrinkles around the lips can be treated and volume can be restored in the lips.
Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, it dissolves naturally with time and requires no allergy testing prior to treatment. Results typically last from 8 to 12 months. True Beauty Med Spa of Tucson also utilizes Radiesse® which is a longer lasting dermal filler with results typically lasting 12-24 months.
Radiesse® Dermal Filler
Radiesse® is a longer-lasting dermal filler used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, or almost any area of volume loss. Radiesse® Dermal Filler contains microspheres made up of a natural material called calcium hydroxylapatite. Not only do these microspheres fill in the lines and wrinkles, but they also stimulate your body to produce more collagen. It can be used in areas such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines from the mouth to the chin), pre-jowel sulcus (drooping areas along the jaw line), cheekbones and cheeks. It can also be used in the backs of the hands to help restore more youthful-looking hands. Because Radiesse® is made of calcium-based microspheres, it lasts longer than other dermal fillers, typically lasting 12-24 months.
