Smooth, radiant skin is the perfect complement to a stellar smile. That’s why the experienced cosmetic dentists at Just For Your Smile offer premium dermal fillers at their Potomac Village in Potomac, Maryland. Dermal Fillers add volume to your skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To find out if dermal fillers are right for you, call Just For Your Smile or schedule an appointment online today.
Dermal fillers are treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, targeting skin that has lost its natural elasticity. As you age, your skin gradually loses the collagen and elastin that once made it look plump and youthful. This causes the skin to wrinkle and sag. Injectable fillers replenish your skin with gel-like substances.
The team at Just For Your Smile also offers a broad range of injectable neuromodulators, including Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®.
Other skin rejuvenation treatments include PRGF® (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors) and mesotherapy. While PRGF uses growth factors in your own blood to stimulate collagen production, mesotherapy infuses your skin with skin-tightening enzymes, vitamins, and hormones and can be done with needles called cannulas (for less chances of bruising).
Just For Your Smile also offers Aquagold® Fine Touch™ microchanneling for the whole face and neck. This innovative microneedling device contains 24 karat needles that can deliver products, such as PRGF, fillers, or retinol directly into the skin.
Aquagold is well-suited for those looking to subtly minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The results are natural-looking and soft without dramatically changing your appearance. While your skin may look slightly red or bruised immediately after the treatment, these minor side effects should subside within 1-2 days.
A balance between the face and lips can enhance your smile and rejuvenate your skin. After a careful assessment, the providers at Just For Your Smile use the latest technology and products to deliver a balanced proportion to your lips and face.
Traditionally, injectable fillers treat static wrinkles — lines and folds that form from volume loss — while neuromodulators treat dynamic wrinkles. These lines form from repeated muscle movement.
Volume loss is caused by many factors, such as bone resorption, fat shrinkage, gravity, stress, and lifestyle. That’s why the providers at Just For Your Smile are proud to offer different kinds of fillers like Restylane Lyft (Perlane), Restylane-L, Defyne, Refyne, Kysse, and the RHA® Collection. RHA is approved to treat dynamic wrinkles.
When injected into static wrinkles, some fillers can make the skin look stiff and immobile. The wide selection of Restylane products, in addition to the RHA Collection, combats this side effect with a proprietary hyaluronic acid formula designed by Swiss scientists. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance your body already produces.
The Filler Collection can treat nearly any type of facial wrinkle and crease, such as:
Injectable fillers can enhance your smile and bring balance to your facial symmetry by supporting saggy skin and filling folds and unwanted wrinkles. Fillers can also subtly plump up your lips.
Meanwhile, neuromodulators can reduce the appearance of:
The providers also use neuromodulators to relieve jaw pain, tension headaches, and pain from clenching. Along with injectable neuromodulators, the team offers custom-made night guards.
The experienced cosmetic dentists at Just For Your Smile use anesthetics and numbing agents to ensure your experience with Dermal Filler is as comfortable as possible, in addition to using small needles and microcannula for a more comfortable, safer injection and fewer chances of bruising. The treatment shouldn’t feel painful, but the injection itself may be slightly uncomfortable.
After the treatment, you may experience minor swelling and redness at the injection site, but these side effects should subside within a few days.
Unlike neuromodulators, which usually take a few days to two weeks to see results, injectable fillers produce instant results. Your skin should look smoother and more radiant immediately after injection.
While many dermal fillers typically wear off within 6-18 months, the results of injectable fillers vary based on patients’ metabolism and lifestyle. Once your results begin to fade, the team usually advises patients to come back twice a year after their initial treatment for their follow-up and any touch-ups if needed and to maintain their results. These follow-up treatments help you maintain your results.
