Facial Fillers. (Injectable Dermal Fillers)
Take back your youthful vitality
As we get older, we tend to lose that little extra something—that glow on our faces that makes us feel young. The fact is, after age 35, most of us start losing volume in our faces. We lose some of the fat pads that make us look younger and even some of the underlying bone structure leaving our faces a little deflated. When we see someone who is deflated, without even thinking of it consciously our brain it computes to one thing, older age. Combine that volume loss with a loss of skin elasticity and your face starts to sag slightly and gives you deep facial lines below the cheeks and around the mouth and chin.
That’s where Dermal Fillers like Restylane,Juvéderm and Voluma come in. They’re non-invasive fillers that instantly smooth away wrinkles, plump up your lips, and restore lost volume in your face. Fix that little jowl before anyone notices and people will say you look younger, or rested.
Dermal fillers are also good for enhancing. If you want more voluptuous lips, or more "cheeky" cheeks, we combine the latest technology and the best technique. We take a "Midwest approach" to all of our treatments, but especially when it comes to dermal fillers. The last thing you want is for a friend to ask "What did you have done?" or end up looking like an over done "real housewife". At MGMD Aesthetics we appreciate the fact that natural beauty is the goal. We want to do everything we can to make you look natural with normal proportions and symmetry so friends and acquaintances marvel at your youthful vitality and not your duck lips.
We are in an age of amazing aesthetic technology. Right now we have 10 or more different products which are tools in our toolbox to help address very specific signs of aging. While the differences are too nuanced to discuss here, let’s just say we have the right tool for almost any job. Whether you have lines around your mouth and chin, small lips, deep lines, fine lines or sunken cheeks, there is a long lasting technology to address that problem.
Why do we use fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, and Voluma?
Restylane, Juvéderm and Voluma are clear gel like substances composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally exists in the body. Although it is called "acid", hyaluronic acid isn't harsh or damaging at all. Within the human body, large amounts of hyaluronic acid are found between the cells, where it provides skin with its youthful suppleness and moisture. Due to the decrease in hyaluronic acid as we age, combined with other factors, we all lose volume under the surface of the skin, resulting in the increase appearance of wrinkles and smile lines. We replace that volume in exactly the right place with exactly the right product to make you look refreshed for 6 months to 2 years depending on the location and product used. Each product is a result of very advanced technology that give it the exact characterestics for a specific job in a specific area of the face.
Other than the experience and detailed knowledge of anatomy required to use these products in a way that minimizes the chance of injection complications these products are very safe in terms that there are very few reactions to these products. While there can be rare complications there is minimal chance of allergy or other reaction to these gels.
In the rare case that there is a complication or unwanted result, hyaluronidase (a natural enzyme) can be used to remove the filler from the area it was injected.
