Restore a Youthful Appearance with Injectable Fillers at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery

Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery

Aging is an inevitable process that no one can stay away from. However, with the advancements in cosmetic surgery and the availability of procedures that help restore youth, people can delay the effects of aging on their faces. Those who wish to look younger and restore the fullness of their faces but do not desire face lifts can opt for injectable fillers. These dermal fillers are often called “liquid face lifts” as their benefits are very similar to that of a face lift, yet it does not have any downtime.

At Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, there are several injectable treatments available and all are performed only by board-certified plastic surgeons.

Juvederm® is an FDA-approved injectable filler that is largely hyaluronic acid. It reduces wrinkles in the face and softens deep folds. Its prime use is to remove “smile lines” or skin creases that run from the corners of the nose to the mouth.

Restylane® and Perlane®

Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is formulated to act like your body’s hyaluronic acid. It adds volume to the skin, correcting moderate to several facial folds and wrinkles.

Perlane® is similar to Restylane when it comes to formulation and function. What makes it different is the depth of injection as well as the average size of particles. Gel particles in Perlane are typically larger than gel particles in Restylane. Thus, it is a good choice for wrinkles that require deeper skin injections.

Sculptra® is a cosmetic injection that contains poly-L-lactic acid or the synthetic material found in soft tissue implants and dissolvable stitches. Sculptra is an FDA-approved, long-lasting dermal filler that adds facial volume.

There is no need for you to know which injectable filler is appropriate for you. All you have to do is to consult any of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery. During the consultation, an assessment will be made and you will be asked to express your concerns and aesthetic goals.
