Dermal Fillers - Wrinkle Corrections


As we get older our skin begins to change and show signs of the aging process in the form of wrinkles. One way to combat this aging process is to use dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used the area around the eyes, brow, bridge of the nose, mouth, jaw line and cheeks, or the lips. Cosmetic procedures for eliminate wrinkles with dermal fillers, are a minimally invasive procedure that is cost effective, requires little to no recovery time, and poses minimal risks. There are two categories of facial wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are visible when your face is at rest. Static wrinkles occur during the aging process because of the loss of elastic tissue.
Dermal fillers and B0t0x Before and After

The ageing process sees most people lose volume from the face – from around the eyes, the upper cheeks, cheekbones, sides of the mouth, nose-to-mouth lines, and then the forehead and sides of the face. Cosmetic surgery can alleviate this problem with the help of various fillers. Dermal fillers will not stop the aging process. By adding fullness they can give some lifting to the general facial structure. However, dermal fillers cannot achieve the same results as a face lift. You should discuss your goals and expectations at your consultation. such the ones based on hyaluronic acid, collagen and calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres.
Although these treatments are suitable for most people, there is some contributing factors that make a very small percentage of people unsuitable candidates for treatment. For facial rejuvenation without surgery Dr Rodrigo like to see the patient for a consultation and for assessment. A thorough consultation is advisable, during which Dr Rodrigo find out relevant medical history and check for suitability. Dr Rodigo often use a combination of anti wrinkle treatments such as B0t0x and facial fillers such as Radiesse and Varioderm. This also gives for Dr Rodrigo the opportunity to answer any questions you may have, explain pre and post treatment instructions and to perform a test dose if required.
