Dialing Back the Years with Cosmetic Fillers

Dialing Back the Years with Cosmetic Fillers

Aging may be inevitable, but its effects on your face aren’t thanks to cosmetic fillers. These quick-and-easy treatments can hit the reset button on aging skin and clear away years of aging in mere minutes.

As part of our comprehensive women’s health services, Dr. David Foulk and our team here at Marion Ob/Gyn offer aesthetic treatments that help women achieve their cosmetic goals. Among our most popular offerings, both here at our practice and across the nation, are cosmetic fillers, and here’s why.

Loss of collagen

One of the biggest culprits behind aging skin is the natural loss of collagen, which is the structural protein responsible for the support of your skin. During your 30s and 40s, this loss is subtle, but by the time you reach perimenopause and menopause, the reduction in collagen becomes increasingly evident.

As a result, your skin loses elasticity and tone and can begin to sag. At the same time, deep lines can form, such as those parentheses lines that run from your nose to your chin on either side of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

As if these changes weren’t unwelcome enough, the thin layer of fat underneath your skin can migrate, leaving you with hollowed cheeks or thinning lips.

The many benefits of cosmetic fillers

Soft tissue fillers rank No. 2 in the United States in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, with more than 3.4 million treatments in 2020 alone. There are many reasons why these cosmetic fillers are so popular, including:

Making up for the loss of collagen

One of the primary goals of our cosmetic fillers is to make up for the loss of collagen in your skin. 

At the heart of two of our dermal fillers — Restylane® and Belotero Balance® — is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body. HA helps your body retain moisture, and when we inject the filler, this ingredient helps to fill in deep lines, add volume, and lift sagging skin.

Our other cosmetic filler — Sculptra® — goes further, as it contains poly-L-lactic acid microparticles that encourage new collagen support in your skin. 

Many applications

With our cosmetic fillers, we can address a wide range of concerns, including:

These fillers are so versatile that we can even use them to add volume to aging and craggy-looking hands.

Quick, easy, and immediate

We administer our cosmetic fillers in mere minutes, and your results are immediate.

Long-lasting results

While results vary from one person to the next and depend on which filler we use, most people enjoy a year or more of results with our HA fillers and two to three years with Sculptra.

When the results start to fade, all you need to do is come back for another round of quick-and-easy injections.
