Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and other tissues of the human body. It helps to keep these areas strong, resilient, and supported. However, with age, production of hyaluronic acid slows down, which contributes to sagging and wrinkles. Because it occurs naturally, hyaluronic acid is a wonderful, well-tolerated ingredient for injectable fillers. Dr. Kenkel offers the following HA-based products:
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
- Restylane® Lyft
- Restylane® Silk
- BELOTERO BALANCE®
Although these products share an active ingredient, there are differences between them that may make them better suited to certain patients and certain treatment areas. During your consultation, Dr. Kenkel carefully examines your areas of concern. You work together to determine the options best for you. These products can be used to treat many common concerns, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Lost volume in the cheeks
- Insufficient volume in the lips
- Temporal hollows
- Lack of definition in the jaw line or chin
These products can be "mixed and matched" with each other or with other injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or KYBELLA® to find the combination which suits you best. Treatment is typically quite comfortable and brief, with most patients in and out of the office in less than an hour. Following your treatment, you may return to your regular activities immediately, and with fillers, your results are instantly visible. Although these treatments are temporary, the results can last for several months and even more than a year. Dr. Kenkel advises you on what you can expect.
Hyaluronic acid isn't the only ingredient used in fillers. Dr. Kenkel also offers Sculptra® Aesthetic, which uses unique ingredients to give patients lasting results.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid, which creates gradual, sustained results over time. It stimulates natural collagen production and supports skin. Sculptra typically requires up to 4 treatments, spaced several weeks apart.
Lip augmentation procedures are designed to make the lips more attractive by plumping and defining them. Aging, heredity and lifestyle factors such as smoking all may contribute to decreased lip fullness and wrinkling. Lip augmentation can smooth out the fine lines that go from the lip to the surrounding skin and can plump-up and accentuate the lips.
How much do fillers cost?
Because of the varied needs of each patient, it's difficult to offer a quote for injectables over the Internet. The cost of your procedure is dependent on how many areas you wish to treat, as well as which products you choose. We offer you a written quote during your consultation.
