Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
An ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. At Dental Arts of Hackensack P.C., we often use dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvederm™ & Prevelle Silk™. They are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. They are made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. They may be used in conjunction with Botox® Cosmetic™ to create a strikingly more youthful appearance.
A mild localized anesthetic is normally used to minimize or usually eliminate the pain associated with this type of treatment. The numbing effects will wear off in 15 minutes to as long as a couple of hours depending on the anesthetic used by the doctor. There is no pain reported afterwards.
