Dermal fillers can target many different aging-related concerns, but they can also improve your appearance by correcting cosmetic imperfections and enhancing facial features. At Bayside MedSpa in Norfolk, VA, we offer several different fillers that are versatile, safe, and effective. Our custom-tailored treatment plans help patients of different ages with unique aesthetic goals achieve their ideal appearance with a quick and long-lasting dermal filler treatment.
There are two primary types of dermal fillers: hyaluronic acid-based fillers and collagen-stimulating fillers. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers contain a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid and are suspended in a gel formula. They can fill hollow areas and smooth wrinkles by adding volume beneath the skin. Collagen-stimulating fillers contain an active ingredient that forces your body to respond to the treatment by growing new collagen in the treatment area.
These fillers deliver natural and long-term results and can combat some of the most common signs of aging. We offer both of these types of dermal fillers at Bayside MedSpa and can use the right treatment options to address your areas of concern.
Radiesse Plus is a collagen-stimulating filler that uses an active ingredient made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel formula to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production. When injected into specific areas of the face, it can fill hollow areas and smooth lines and wrinkles by forcing the body to grow new, natural collagen in the treatment area.
What It Treats
We can use this collagen-stimulating filler to smooth smile lines around the mouth, including dermal fillers folds. We can also use it to improve the appearance of marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles. Immediately following your injection, you will see results that will continue to improve over time as your body grows new collagen.
What To Expect
Once treated with Radiesse Plus, patients can expect the results to last one year or longer. Once results begin to fade, follow-up treatments with Radiesse Plus can stimulate your body’s collagen production to promote long-term results.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can smooth lines and wrinkles on the lower and middle half of the face. Once the gel formula is injected below the skin’s surface, it integrates well with the skin tissue. It can treat the more advanced sides of aging, like moderate to more severe nasolabial folds and smile lines around the mouth.
We can also use it to smooth chin wrinkles and inject this into more delicate areas of the face that have experienced signs of aging, including the vertical perioral lines that appear above the lips.
What To Expect
Once injected with Belotero Balance, you can expect immediate results that will last six months or longer based on the injection location, how much product we inject into your treatment area, and the mobility of the treatment area. The body responds well to treatments with Belotero Balance as it contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, similar to what the body naturally creates.
Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to smooth facial folds, lines, and wrinkles on the lower and mid-facial area. It injects immediate volume just below the skin’s surface to smooth mental creases, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and oral commissioners. Revanesse Versa is a perfect filler for patients who want to erase the signs of aging, create new youthful contours, and achieve a well-rested and glowing complexion.
What To Expect Post-Treatment
Once you undergo treatment with one of our fillers, you will see some immediate results. It’s important to note that while you will see immediate results, the best results will appear in the weeks following treatment. It can take up to 30 days for the final results to become evident. While all of these fillers allow patients to enjoy long-lasting results, they are only temporary solutions.
Your body eventually will metabolize the ingredients in these fillers, and when that happens, your face will return to its pre-treatment appearance. Follow-up treatments once your results begin to fade will allow you to enjoy results without interruption.
Will I Have To Plan Around Any Downtime?
Dermal fillers don’t require significant downtime, but they do require that you take extra care of the injection sites post-treatment. We will provide a comprehensive list of post-care instructions that you will follow for the first few days after treatment. You may be asked to avoid strenuous exercise, anti-inflammatory medications and supplements, and alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
You should also avoid touching the injection site and putting any pressure on the area. These temporary instructions only need to be followed for the first few days, and then you can resume all your normal activities and typical skin care regimen.
Am I a Candidate for Fillers?
If you have certain features that you don’t love and want to improve with a dermal filler treatment plan, or you want to address volume loss that has caused the formation of lines, wrinkles, and facial folds on the middle and lower half of your face, you may be a good candidate for one of these dermal fillers. The best candidates will understand the treatment process and that follow-up treatments are important to extending results long-term.
The best candidates are adults in good health who are willing to follow all of the post-treatment care instructions. It’s also important that patients are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the injectables. Our pre-treatment consultations are designed to determine patient eligibility so that we can develop a safe and effective treatment plan with one or more of these dermal fillers to help you reach all of your aesthetic goals.
