Fillers help you achieve a wrinkle-free complexion with youthful volume. These injectables are quick and effective ways to look younger without the extraordinary expense or long recovery time associated with surgery.
How do fillers work?
Fillers, sometimes called dermal fillers or facial fillers, are injectable compounds that add volume and hydration to aging skin.
Juvedérm’s line of products contain hyaluronic acid, a compound that your body naturally produces to plump and hydrate your tissues. Your production of hyaluronic acid is greatest in your youth, but decrease as you get older, leaving your skin dryer, thinner, and less resilient.
The Juvedérm formulas restore hyaluronic acid to different areas of your face. The result is plumper skin, reduced appearance of wrinkles, and greater volume.
Radiesse addresses the signs of aging with an ingredient called calcium hydroxylapatite, a synthetic compound found naturally in your bones and teeth. When Katie injects the gel into treatment areas, the microspheres create a matrix that looks just like your own connective tissue and boosts your facial skin’s structure and volume.
Over time, your body absorbs Radiesse's microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. Collagen has developed in their place, however, and preserves your natural, more youthful look.
What facial concerns can fillers correct?
Fillers are an excellent solution for wrinkles, lines, thin lips, sunken cheeks, and eye hollows.
Specifically, Katie may recommend fillers to address:
Marionette lines – the lines going down the sides of the mouth to the chin
Forehead furrows – the deep horizontal grooves caused by expressions
Laugh lines – creases going from the nose to the mouth
Smokers' lines – the tiny lines around the lips
Frown lines – the creases between the eyebrows
The results of fillers last anywhere from six to 18 months, depending on the area treated, the formula used, and how your tissues respond.
How are fillers applied?
Injecting Confidence uses fine needles to apply the fillers to predetermined areas of your face. Katie uses her vast experience with injectables and her knowledge of facial structure to locate just the right places to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
