Fillers

Fillers

With age comes wisdom and experience, which provide profound value to us and those around us. Unfortunately, age is also accompanied by wrinkles and loose skin, two byproducts we don’t usually look forward to flaunting. The good news is those pesky aging symptoms can easily be smoothed away without anesthesia or incisions in most cases.

Quick injections of dermal fillers can erase lines and wrinkles while restoring youthful facial volume for a look that cheats time. At Morpheus Medical Aesthetics, we are all about helping you look as vibrant as you feel through any season of life, which is why we feature a full line of dermal fillers to help you meet every concern and aesthetic goal.

What are Fillers and What Do They Do?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that restore support to the underlying dermal structure. In our youth, that job is handled by the protein collagen, which gives our skin its firm, supple texture. Over time, our bodies manufacture less collagen, which leads to skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles. Dermal fillers replace the lost collagen to smooth away wrinkles and add youthful curves to the facial profile from the inside out.

At Morpheus Medical Aesthetics, we offer the following dermal fillers to help our patients achieve a beautifully natural look:

Juvederm

This line of hyaluronic acid fillers runs the gamut of solutions, from thicker fillers to restore youthful volume to smooth consistencies perfect for areas like the lips and under the eyes. Some of the formulations feature cross-linking technology that offers long-lasting results while preserving natural facial expressions.

Restylane

Restylane is another line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that feature similar formulations to those in the Juvederm family. However, our expert team knows the subtle differences between the two that can make the difference between good and excellent results for you. We offer the full range of Restylane products so we can tailor treatments to every aesthetic goal.

Belotero

The smooth consistency and ability to integrate fully with your dermal tissue make Belotero Balance a clear choice for many patients looking for subtle rejuvenation around the eyes and mouth. The quick, easy hyaluronic acid treatment produces immediately noticeable results without looking unnatural in any way – perfect for delicate areas where less is more.

Radiesse

Radiesse is one of the only fillers offered by Morpheus Medical Aesthetics that does not feature hyaluronic acid as its core ingredient. Instead, this filler contains calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance naturally found in the body in the bones and teeth. When injected as a dermal filler, calcium hydroxyapatite creates a scaffolding in the dermal structure to provide the necessary support for immediate smoothing and volume. At the same time, the substance stimulates the body to produce more collagen for naturally long-lasting results.

Sculptra

Unlike any other dermal filler available today, Sculptra is designed to work with the body to produce more collagen for volumizing effects over time. Poly-L-lactic acid is the active ingredient that stimulates the collagen production necessary to reverse the loss of facial volume common with aging. Once you achieve the fullness you want, you can enjoy those results for up to two years. Subtle and gradual, it is unlikely anyone will realize you had a procedure performed. Instead, they will wonder how you seem to be naturally reversing the aging effect on your appearance!

Who is a Good Candidate for Filler?

Dermal fillers are a safe, practical choice for men and women looking to reverse aging symptoms such as:

  • Nasolabial folds that form between the nose and mouth
  • Smile lines in the outer corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines that extend from the mouth to the chin
  • Loss of facial volume and definition in the midface
  • Early jowl formation along the jawline
  • Hollowing in the temple area

The procedure is appropriate for any skin tone and does not require any anesthesia or recovery time afterward. Our team of experts will assess you before your procedure to determine whether dermal fillers are the right choice for you and which product will produce the optimal outcome.

 

What to Expect During Your Filler Treatment

When you arrive at Morpheus Medical Aesthetics for your dermal filler treatment, you will be taken into a luxurious private room where your procedure will be performed. In most cases, no anesthetic is required before the process, although topical numbing cream or ice may be applied to more sensitive areas.

Injections themselves take a few minutes to complete and should be relatively comfortable. Your injector will strategically place the needle in locations that will produce the most balanced, natural result. Once your injections are finished, you will be free to leave our office right away.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

Some patients do experience mild swelling after their dermal filler treatment, but this side effect typically subsides within a matter of hours. There should not be any discomfort to keep you from all your regular activities. While you might see some initial improvement right away, the results will continue to improve in the days following your session.

 

How Long do Fillers Last?

The duration of your filler will depend on numerous factors, including the area treated, the product used and how fast your body reabsorbs the solution. Hyaluronic acid fillers can last anywhere from six months to more than a year. Radiesse typically lasts up to one year, and Sculptra results usually extend for two years. You can schedule regular treatments to ensure you maintain your positive results indefinitely if you choose.
