Using Fillers to Naturally Enhance Your Face

As we age, the amount of fat and collagen in our skin gradually decreases which leaves loose, sagging skin behind that eventually turns into wrinkles. Certain proteins, such as hyaluronic acid, deep in our skin also become depleted causing small wrinkles and a loss of youthful plumpness and tone in our face. In addition to slowing or reversing the effects of aging, at Advance Liposuction Center we find that there are other reasons clients come to us as well, including:

·       Long term effects of sun exposure

·       Scarring and trauma

·       Genetic tendencies

Choosing the Right Filler

There are several different dermal fillers. The injectable gels we offer are all safe, FDA approved and provide wonderful results. This non-invasive technique can be used to temporarily add volume and reduce fine lines, soften facial creases, plump lips, reduce wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars.

Our injection specialists will choose the best anti-aging filler for your unique needs and facial features. The filler will be injected directly under the area that you want elevated or plumped. Usually, the procedure takes about 25 minutes and can be done comfortably in any of our state of the art, Greater Pittsburgh area cosmetic surgery offices. No anesthesia is needed prior to injecting and our fillers contain an anesthetic, which numbs the skin. Most patients report only mild discomfort that lasts only as long as the injection process. Following the procedure, you may be numb for one to two hours and a cold compress may help reduce any discomfort or swelling. Patients usually return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
