Cosmetic Fillers Q & A

How do cosmetic fillers rejuvenate?

Aging breaks down and depletes collagen — a protein that lends your skin volume and firmness. You lose about 1% of your collagen every year, starting at age 18. As your collagen diminishes, your facial skin sags and forms wrinkles. 

Cosmetic fillers replace lost volume by either drenching your skin with hyaluronic acid (HA) or by stimulating your skin to produce new collagen. The HA fillers usually last between 12-18 months. Collagen-stimulators can last up to 5 years.  

How can I restore facial volume?

To restore volume to your face, the aesthetic experts at Marion Ob/Gyn Inc. use Sculptra® Aesthetic or Restylane®.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a collagen stimulator made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles that prompt your skin to produce new collagen. A series of 2-3 treatments is needed to achieve your ideal rejuvenation. Results last up to two years.

Sculptra is able to:

  • Add volume to your midface
  • Fill in deep creases and folds
  • Build up cheekbones for extra lift
  • Fill in your temples
  • Augment your chin

Restylane

Restylane is a family of injectable hyaluronic-acid based fillers that create subtle and natural volume in your face and lips. When injected, HA plumps your skin, restoring youthful firmness.

With Restylane products, you can:

  • Smooth away wrinkles and folds
  • Provide subtle lip augmentation
  • Add volume to your midface
  • Add subtle lift to your cheeks

Most Restylane products last up to 18 months.

How can I treat lines and creases?

The aesthetics team at Marion Ob/Gyn Inc. use the HA fillers Belotero Balance® and Restylane to resolve lines and creases, particularly around your nose. Results are instant, and last about 4-6 months.

Your aesthetics expert uses Belotero and Restylane to fill in:

  • Mild-to-moderate nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Smoker’s lines

How can I plump my lips?

The aesthetics experts at Marion Ob/Gyn Inc. find that Restylane Silk creates the most beautiful and natural-looking lip augmentation. You’ll need to touch-up every year.
