Skin Enhancement Q & A

 

How do wrinkles develop?

As you age, your skin loses a degree of moisture and elasticity. Sun exposure hastens those changes, as can certain environmental conditions. Your skin is also stretched countless times a day due to various facial expressions.

Just beneath your skin lies a layer of collagen. This natural “padding” provides the plumpness associated with youth and vitality. Over time, your face loses some of that collagen, and your skin begins to sag and settle into lines and creases, especially in the areas near your eyes and mouth.

Wrinkles, lines, and folds are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them as a permanent part of your appearance.

How do skin enhancement treatments work?

Dr. Golberg uses injectable dermal fillers to enhance the appearance of your skin and lessen the visible signs of aging. Administering dermal fillers is as much an art as it is a science. Knowing exactly where to place the injections and how much to administer them takes significant training and practice. Dr. Golberg offers unparalleled expertise in these procedures.

How do dermal fillers work?

Your skin contains a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. It provides lubrication and a cushioning effect, but your natural levels of hyaluronic acid decrease over time. That’s where dermal fillers come in.

Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERMⓇ, RestylaneⓇ, and BELOTEROⓇ are made of hyaluronic acid. They provide a soft, natural fullness near the injection site, filling out your skin and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Even better, your body reacts to the injections by producing new collagen.

RADIESSEⓇ differs in that it’s made of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel. Because your body naturally produces calcium hydroxylapatite, the injections are well-tolerated.   

What’s the best way to smooth crow's feet?

All of these products can be used in incremental amounts to improve the appearance of crow’s feet. Because this is such a small area with thin skin, it’s important to choose a physician who has extensive experience using dermal fillers around the eyes.

Which dermal filler is right for smile lines?

Restylane is a great option for smoothing smile lines, also called nasolabial folds. Restylane is also effective in treating marionette lines, which run from the corners of your mouth down toward your chin.   


BELLAFILL is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Now, you can look your best without wasting time and money on frequent filler injections.


JUVÉDERM is another good choice for creases around your mouth. There are multiple fillers in the JUVÉDERM family, and Dr. Golberg can choose the product that’s right for you.

 

RADIESSE is a popular choice for smile lines because it offers results that can last for up to one year. Other dermal fillers yield results that last around four months.
