Dermal Fillers in Westfield
A Non-Surgical Option for Reshaping and Redefining Your Features
As we age, our faces lose volume and collagen production decreases. These conditions can cause the face to crease and appear more hollow and flat. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, address different aspects of the face by restoring youthful fullness and shape, and stimulating collagen.
While some people believe the lines give them a more "experienced" look, others find that the lines make them look older than they feel, or make them appear tired, even when they're not. These individuals commonly try products sold in drug stores, department stores, or makeup counters to combat the signs of aging. Unfortunately, those products often fail to live up to their significant promises.
Now, individuals in Westfield, NJ, can turn to Dr. Carlos Burnett of Burnett Plastic Surgery to help them get back the familiar, more youthful appearance. Dr. Burnett offers many services from Botox to dermal fillers to help patients erase the lines and feel better about their appearance without the need for invasive or painful surgery.
How it Works
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm work to replenish volume lost in the face during the aging process. Juvéderm is useful in smoothing out lines in the face. This type of filler can lead to a smoother, less lined, more defined facial appearance.
While results will vary depending on which type of filler is used and on the depth, amount, and placement of the lines, results typically last one to two years. Patients can return to Dr. Burnett for touch up or repeat procedures. Because the results are subtle, the method is effective for patients who want to give their appearance a little boost, not make a dramatic change.
Advances in cosmetic medicine have brought us many dermal fillers, which address different signs of aging. Although dermal fillers work in the same manner, to replenish what has been naturally depleted from the skin, each product has a specific formulation that makes it suitable for specific uses and areas of the face. Dr. Burnett may recommend treatment with fillers such as:
Cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal filler JUVÉDERM® restores lost volume to various areas of the face, smoothing lines for
a more youthful aesthetic. This filler may also produce results that last
up to a year.
We now offer JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel, an ideal treatment for individuals aged 21 and over who wish to replace lost volume in the cheeks. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first filler approved for the instant lifting of the cheeks. Treatments take just a few minutes, and results last up to two years. Also available are JUVÉDERM® XC, which is intended to smooth out moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, which is a gel injected into the lips to give them a plumper appearance.
Another of our excellent products is BELOTERO BALANCE®. This product from Merz Aesthetics is an injection available by prescription which can temporarily fill in moderate-to-severe facial lines and wrinkles. It can help smooth or completely erase nasolabial folds (the "parentheses" that sometimes appear around the nose and mouth), vertical lip lines, corners of the mouth, smile lines, and chin wrinkles.
