With time, the skin can loose its natural volume through degeneration of collagen and other components. The lips, cheeks, mouth, and forehead are common areas that sag or deflate. Unfortunately, these same areas are visible to others and create an aged or tired appearance. There are a variety of wrinkle filling products recommended by Dr. Gualtieri, each used for a specific indication:
(hylauronic acid) products ~ Juvederm XC
Calcium Micro-Bead products ~ Radiesse
All products are injection materials and are natural “filling” substances approved by the FDA which act as a filler to restore volume and structure to your skin. Lips can become more plump, deep folds around the mouth and between the brow will flatten resulting in a more softer, youthful look.
The treatment session takes only a few minutes and the results are immediate. Most products last 4-8 months and are easily repeated or additional sessions can be performed to create the desired look.
Lips before treatment look thin, dry, wrinkled. Lips are full, round, luscious after treatment with a product such as Juvederm.
Deep folds between the nose and mouth. After a treatment with a product like Radiesse, the area is more smooth.
