If you’re looking for non-surgical ways to enhance your beauty and make your appearance more youthful, getting cosmetic fillers might be the right choice for you. Cosmetic fillers revitalize the appearance of men and women by giving you a refreshed look.
To elevate your face to its highest level of vitality, board-certified plastic surgeon Raymund J. Llaurado, MD uses three different kinds of fillers, RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane®, at his Arroyo Grande, California office. Understand the differences between the three types of fillers, and which is the right choice for you.
About cosmetic fillers
Every type of cosmetic filler works in the same general way, by reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and lines of your face through increasing volume. As you get older, your face tends to develop wrinkles and lose volume, both of which cosmetic fillers help reverse.
Cosmetic fillers can make your face appear smoother, lessen creases and wrinkles, add volume to your lips, reduce shadowing on your lower lid, and even lessen the appearance of any facial scars. The results of fillers are long-lasting, ranging from several months up to two years.
The three kinds of cosmetic fillers
To give you your best possible results, Dr. Llaurado uses three different types of cosmetic fillers. Each kind of filler uses different ingredients and offers different areas of focus and results.
RADIESSE fillers use the ingredient calcium hydroxylapatite to achieve impressive results. This substance, which is also already naturally occurring in your body, smoothes and corrects facial wrinkles and folds that are moderate to severe.
JUVÉDERM uses a different ingredient, hyaluronic acid, to make facial corrections. This cosmetic filler increases your facial volume, which decreases moderate-to-severe fine lines and facial wrinkles.
Restylane also uses hyaluronic acid to enhance your appearance. Getting Restylane improves your skin’s elasticity and improves facial smoothness by giving your face a fuller, more volumized appearance.
Choosing the right type of filler for you
At your initial consultation, Dr. Llaurado recommends the best cosmetic filler treatment plan for you. His recommendations are based on which types of fillers will give you the most youthful appearance, based on your skin type and personal goals. Your treatment plan might include more than one kind of filler.
No matter what kind of filler you choose, getting cosmetic fillers is a simple process at our Arroyo Grande office. Getting cosmetic fillers only requires one visit, and getting cosmetic fillers is a quick, pain-free process.
You can go back to your usual routine right away, and any minor bruising or swelling you have from getting the filler resolves within a few days. You can see the results within two weeks.
