Our faces are an important part of our daily interactions with others. Our expressions, our eye cues, our overall appearance all play a part in the impressions people make of us. Unfortunately, a dull, wrinkled face does not make the best impression.
Aging is the biggest reason why the face takes on a duller appearance. The lips start to thin and wrinkles and lines begin appearing around the face. Your face loses its supporting volume underneath, creating looser, more saggy skin. And exposure to the environment and the sun only exacerbates all of the above.
Facial fillers are one way to fight back. Fillers can be injected into areas of the face that have developed lines and wrinkles, filling them, adding volume, and making the face look younger.
At UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center, we use only FDA-approved fillers like Restylane and Radiesse. Both have a proven track record of being effective in reducing the lines and wrinkles and in making the face look bright and young, and both are considered very safe, as well.
Our consultation appointment will take longer than the actual procedure, as we seek to understand your goals and expectations from your facial filler treatment. The actual procedure takes just minutes, and most people return to their normal routines immediately following their appointment. Results are noticeable immediately.
