Dermal Fillers

Today, many residents in the Atlanta area are looking to age gracefully. Most people want to look and feel their best without a high level of maintenance or risk. When facial wrinkles, creases, and folds begin to emerge, many seek aesthetic treatment to stop the drawbacks of the aging process. Although surgical procedures can work wonders, there is a high level of risk, cost, and recovery which must be considered. Currently, there is a trend toward non-surgical procedures which help regain youthful beauty by adding facial volume to reduce the effects of aging.

Total Body of Atlanta understands what people in Atlanta want when it comes to turning back the clock on their facial appearance. Board-certified physician, Dr. Dwayne Watkins has assembled a powerful arsenal of dermal fillers to help his patients gain the advantage of aging gracefully.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a long-lasting dermal filler which creates a facelift effect without surgery. A smooth gel which glides easily beneath the skin, it softens and smooths lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth by adding volume where fullness has been compromised because of the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Juvederm also improves the skins ability to retain moisture, adding bulk to its underlying support tissue. It also makes an excellent lip enhancement treatment to add volume for full, sensual lips.

At Total Body, our team offers advanced skill and extensive experience to deliver painless and effective injections of the Juvederm product. They also have a keen understanding of facial anatomy to ensure natural-looking results. You will enjoy your friends and coworkers complementing your appearance without a hint of your having cosmetic treatments.

Every procedure is customized, and we take the time to assess your condition and address your concerns. We start with an evaluation of your skin, making recommendations about the treatment necessary to help you look your best.

Restylane

Restylane is an FDA-approved injectable which restores volume to the skin by smoothing wrinkles and fine lines and lifting sagging skin. This hyaluronic acid filler is commonly used to treat the vertical lines between the brow (glabellar lines) and the nasolabial folds. It also adds volume to the lips to improve contours.

Because Restylane consists of a natural substance found in the body, no skin test for an allergic reaction is necessary. Restylane results are long-lasting because of its unique ability to bind with water and settle within the skin. The results are visible immediately with little to no effects or downtime.

Restylane is highly successful in resolving deep wrinkles which other procedures like dermabrasion or chemical peels cannot correct.

Radiesse

Radiesse is an FDA approved synthetic injectable capable of reducing moderate to severe creases, folds, and wrinkles around the mouth and nose by promoting the natural production of collagen beneath the skin’s surface. It consists of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxyapatite within a water-based gel and minerals common to what is found in our bones.

Radiesse treatments do not require a skin test before injections. Radiesse is effective in reducing the presence of marionette lines, nasolabial folds, smile lines, and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results are visible immediately after treatment and can last for up to a year or longer. With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are dermal fillers different from Botox?

Dermal fillers plump up volume under the skin surface to fill in hollows, wrinkles, and lines. They may also be used to add volume and shape to the lips.

Botox relaxes muscles to treat wrinkles which are the results of expressions and muscle movements like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

At what age can I start dermal filler treatments?

Many of our patients start dermal filler injections when they start seeing signs of wrinkles. Others wait until these aging effects are more prominent. Although most patients fall in the ages between 35 and 65, we see patients in their twenties as well. No patient should seek treatment under the age of 21.

Are dermal filler injections painful?

With our dermal filler injections, we take measure to ensure the procedures are as comfortable as possible. If necessary, we apply an anesthetic cream to numb the injection site. However, lip enhancement involves a very sensitive area and can have some level of discomfort temporarily.
