With facial aging there comes a point where our body is metabolizing tissue faster than we are creating it. This leads to volume deficit in the layers of the skin and facial tissue. Dynamic movement in the muscles of our face, like frowning, causes creasing in the skin which over time leads to a wrinkle.
As we age we also lose significant volume in the face. This leads to hollowed cheeks, jowls, and folds around the mouth and lower face. Volume replacement and decreasing dynamic movement are the two main functions of our injectable treatments.
Radiance consults with you before any facial filler treatment. We offer many different molecular weights of fillers that are able to address the specific areas of lost volume in the face. When injected properly filler should not be able to be seen. Fillers can also be used to help plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove fine wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars.
Choosing Radiance for Fillers
Dermal fillers have been proven to be a safe and effective non-invasive wrinkle treatment. These fillers are widely available but it’s important to remember that they are still a medical procedure; choosing a trusted medical spa with trained and qualified staff is essential. The Radiance team is ready to give you the youthful look of your dreams with your safety and esthetic goals always in mind.
