Injectable fillers are volumizing substances, which can be used to restore volume to specific areas of the face, fill wrinkles, and enhance the lips. When injected beneath the skin, they restore a smoother and more youthful appearance.
INJECTABLE FILLER TYPES
While there are a variety of injectable fillers available, Dr. O’Mara most commonly uses Juvederm®, Restylane® andPerlane®. These fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring skin component. They may be used to improve a wide variety of skin imperfections including moderate to deep facial wrinkles, lines and folds. They can enhance the lips by improving the definition of the lip border or by adding fullness to the body of the lips. They can also volumize facial subunits like the cheeks. These injectable fillers are ideal for individuals with prominent nasolabial folds and fine lines around the mouth and lips, and are an ideal solution for improving prominent grooves between the lower eyelids and cheeks in patients who do not wish to undergo surgery. The results of Juvederm®, Restylane® and Perlane® last an average of ten months.
INJECTABLE FILLER PROCEDURE
Dr. O’Mara performs all injectable fillers procedure himself in the office procedure room at Facial Plastic Surgery Of Beaumont, Texas. Treatment times take just five to ten minutes and a topical anesthetic is commonly used, though local anesthesia is used when treating the lips. Some minor bruising can occur on occasion. However, there is no downtime associated with injectable fillers and patients are able to return to work the very same day.
