Cosmetic Facial Wrinkle Fillers
Cosmetic Facial Wrinkle Fillers Reverse Signs of Aging
Facial volume loss is a natural occurring process in both men and women as they age.
Rates of volume loss, however, vary depending on weight gain or loss, physical activity, genetics, and medical conditions.
As the natural facial fat pads disappear, volume loss becomes noticeable. This volume Loss begins during the teenage years but may not be noticeable until the 20’s or 30’s , depending on factors such as overall health, genetics, weight gain and loss.
These fat pads occur naturally, providing lushness to a younger face. Starting in the later teenage years, facial fat pads begin to disappear. This continues throughout life and is one major reasons why one looks older. Wrinkles become more prominent (more noticeable) and features become less distinctive. Cosmetic facial fillers are designed to subtly restore this volume loss.

There are also other factors which influence the appearance of aging:
What are the Uses for Cosmetic Facial Wrinkle Fillers?
They can be used for smoothing a small wrinkle or evening a deep furrow.
What Cosmetic fillers help correct:
- hollowness around the eyes
- add fullness to thin lips
- balance a face that is out of proportion.
- restore fullness
- create stronger features such as prominent cheekbones, a more angled jawline, or a more prominent chin.
To maximize natural facial rejuvenation, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) containing your bodies’ own Growth Factors (PRFM) may also be injected at the same time, boosting the action of fillers. (Some refer to this as the Vampire lift, but that is a misnomer since this is only one part of maintaining a healthy, youthful, natural appearance).

Liquid Facelift (Alternative to a traditional facelift: A.K.A. V-lift)
The Liquid Face Lift (V lift) is a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift for those wishing immediate correction while avoiding a surgical procedure. Lost facial volume is replaced, making wrinkles less prominent and features more distinct.
Here is a note written by one of our patients following treatment of lost facial volume:
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler which provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement.
Noninvasive skin care treatments such as Dysport®, BOTOX®, microdermabrasion, glycolic peels and laser photorejuvination are often combined to add a more youthful, yet natural effect. They can be scheduled on your lunch hour.
Dr. Burke uses hyaluronic acid fillers for specific facial areas, making recommendations based on your needs determined during the consultation appointment. Considerations include the surface condition of your skin, its overall color and glow, and its underlying volume. Options for hyaluronic acid based fillers include: Juvederm®, Juviderm Ultra Plus, Voluma,and Volbella.The choice of filler is determined at the consultation and depends on the location to be filled and patient goals.
For those preferring the most natural filler – the use of your own fat (lipotransfer) – is an additional option.
