Does a liquid facelift sound familiar? You may have heard friends or family talking about this nonsurgical cosmetic option, which can smooth out wrinkles and restore volume to your facial skin without the need for invasive surgery. Innovative aesthetic wonders like BOTOX® and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® are the hot topics these days, providing both women and men a way to look younger. Dermal fillers are a safe, nonsurgical way to erase fine lines and wrinkles while restoring a youthful fullness to the face. Unlike a traditional facelift, filler treatments don’t require any downtime and can be done during your lunch hour.
The experts at Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA, offer an array of nonsurgical contouring treatments to transform your appearance to a younger-looking you. This premier beauty lab features the latest technology and the most popular cosmetic procedures, which offer Philadelphia-area clients an opportunity to look fresher and healthier. Body+Beauty Lab houses a wide selection of medical spa services as well as an extensive list of dermal fillers to provide clients with the results they desire.
Filling you in on what dermal fillers can do
Also known as dissolving facial fillers, these cosmetic wonders are transforming the way both women and men look at any age. Most dermal fillers, Juvéderm® in particular, last 12 months or longer for most patients. With today’s advancements, there have never been more cosmetic filler options available, and Body+Beauty Lab offers them all to treat your areas of concern. Here is a look at the top five areas treated with dermal fillers.
The skin around the eyes is one of the first places that changes with age, due to the area’s thin or delicate skin. As we age, our faces experiences a decrease in the collagen protein that gives our skin volume. When that starts to occur, the eyes or "tear trough" area begins to show more fine lines and wrinkles, also known as Crow’s feet. The eyes can appear more sunken or hollow, and bags under the eyes may become more visible. Dermal fillers are an excellent way to reduce the appearance of Crow’s feet, fill in sunken areas, and reduce bagginess. Fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane®, and Belotero Balance® can help transform the eye area for a younger, rejuvenated look.
Midface or cheeks
Cheek volume is another popular area that clients want to target with fillers. With age, the cheeks can become hollow in appearance or look flat due to a decrease in collagen production. Fillers can sculpt and add more definition to the cheekbone area, as well as improve the nasolabial folds (also known as "smile lines"), where deep creases or nasojugal grooves develop with age. Juvéderm, Restylane, Belotero Balance, Sculptra®, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm Voluma® XC are some of the options that Body+Beauty Lab offers to tackle these problem areas.
An area that is growing in popularity, especially with women, is eliminating the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines in the chin area. Over time, sun exposure and the weakening of the lower facial muscles can cause the chin area to have an "orange peel" look. Fillers are an excellent way to give clients a smoother appearance in the lower portion of their faces. Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero Balance are recommended fillers to address this issue and minimize those pesky signs of aging.
Lip augmentation is growing in popularity with clients of all ages. Many women in the Greater Philadelphia area want plumper, more voluminous lips. Even women who inherited a thin upper lip can have a more contoured, symmetrical look with help from dermal fillers. Lips also develop fine lines or "lipstick wrinkles" over time with the repetition of facial expressions like smiling, laughing, or frowning. Fillers can reduce the appearance of those fine lines so clients have sexier lips at any age. Juvéderm and other fillers are dedicated to helping with lip augmentation. Working with the experts at Body+Beauty Lab will help determine which one is right for you.
Brow lines or "elevens"
The area between the eyebrows is subject to fine lines and wrinkles with every facial expression. The elevens become more prominent as we age, and may not go away even when the face is at rest. These particular wrinkles are generally brought on by facial expressions but can also be caused by genetics, sleeping on your side, and sun exposure. BOTOX can treat this area by stopping the facial muscles from contracting and making the lines worse. In some cases, clients may need dermal fillers to fill in the lines first if they are profound or severe. Juvéderm and Restylane are two partners used in conjunction with BOTOX to help clients minimize deep lines or wrinkles between their eyebrows.
