Dreaming of plump cheeks or full lips?
Some people have them naturally, while others need a little help from our Focal Point experts with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers offer a variety of benefits to individuals who want to reverse the signs of aging. Without the need of surgery, this injection treatment can enhance many areas of the face including your cheeks and lips, refreshing your overall appearance.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers, also known as derma-fillers or injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, or wrinkle fillers are medical device implants approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in helping to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds, cheeks, and lips. At Focal Point Salon & Spa, we use the latest injectable treatments that are long-lasting and designed for subtlety.
How Long do Dermal Fillers Last?
Depending on the type of filler you choose, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years; for semi-permanent or permanent fillers, the effects can last up to five years and there are reports of even longer-lasting results.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
The gel-like fillers, which have become hugely popular in the last few years, are injected into the face to smooth away wrinkles or plump up features. Manufacturers have reported an excellent safety record.
Sculptra® works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial & butt volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three to four weeks apart.
Sculptra® is injected beneath the skin at the area targeted for correction and has numbing agent included. The results are not seen immediately but over time with results showing as soon as 4 weeks.
How it works in the Face
Focal Point experts use Sculptra to facial fat loss, a condition that leads to visible imperfections, such as:
- Nasolabial folds
- Sunken cheeks
- Hollow temples
- Contour depressions
HOW THE BUTT LIFT WORKS
The buttocks are numbed to prevent discomfort and iced to reduce swelling. Patients will notice an immediate change in appearance – this is due to the product, but indicative of the final results.
Desired results usually require 2-4 treatments, spaced at least 3 to 4 weeks apart. As the Sculptra works, you will begin to notice a change to your posterior. Your augmented buttocks will appear fuller than before, enhancing your natural curves. Each Sculptra treatment can be completed within one hour.
