How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
The purpose of dermal fillers, such as Revanesse® Versa™, is to fill in facial volume loss due to aging. Our face changes shape as we age, becoming more angular and losing the roundness of youth. This is most obvious in the hollows of the cheeks and under the eyes. Revanesse® Versa™ is not like other dermal fillers because of how it’s made. Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, which the body naturally produces to provide the skin with vital nutrients and hydration. Versa™ is different because the HA molecules are a higher molecular weight, making it perfect for filling moderate to severe lines and folds, plump cheeks, and enhancing lips. The wet-milling manufacturing process of Versa™ produces spherical HA molecule links, which improve integration with tissues, leading to less swelling and longer-lasting filler.
How Do Neurotoxins Work?
Everyone’s heard of Botox® to pause aging by smoothing forehead lines, brow furrows, and crow’s feet. Colorado Skin & Vein is proud to offer a more effective, cost-saving alternative in Jeuveau™. In both medications, the active ingredient is derived from botulinum toxin, which blocks nerves in the forehead and around the eyes. These nerves control the muscles responsible for the movement that creates wrinkles. Jeuveau™ suspends the movement of these muscles, giving the wrinkled skin time to repair and renew itself through collagen and new skin cells. Your forehead wrinkles, brow furrows, and crow’s feet smooth out giving you a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Neurotoxins have been approved by the FDA for nearly 20 years, and are well tolerated by most patients. Because HA molecules in dermal fillers are a naturally occurring substance in the body, even the most sensitive of patients receive treatment with little trouble.
