Dermal fillers are injectable medicines designed to give you a glowing and youthful appearance. With an ability to temporarily treat a wide range of cosmetic imperfections and telltale signs of aging, they are the ideal option for men and women of all ages who want to refresh their appearance, but are not yet ready for an aggressive and permanent surgical procedure.
What can dermal fillers accomplish?
The signs of aging impact us all at some point – but you do not have to live with their effects forever. Among the best dermal fillers Bellevue has to offer provides a non-invasive, gentle and extremely effective way to refresh and revitalize your facial appearance by:
- Smoothing wrinkles around the lips.
- Filling in nasolabial folds (lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth.)
- Restoring facial volume that you’ve lost due to the natural aging process.
- Sculpting defined and high cheekbones.
- Improving the appearance of mild jowls.
- Enhancing a recessive chin.
- Treating deep facial folds.
- Fill in and improve the appearance of certain scars.
Types of dermal fillers
Dr. Ridgway is proud to provide his patients with only the safest, most advanced and most effective dermal fillers on the market. As he tailors all of his treatments for each patient, he will use a custom blend of the following dermal fillers to treat the specific signs of aging, cosmetic imperfections and genetic imbalances that concern you most.
Juvederm XC. The cheeks lose their youthful volume with age, resulting in sagging skin and a weathered appearance. In the past, the only way to treat this telltale sign of aging was with a facelift – but today there is Juvederm XC. This unique dermal filler will restore your lost volume for up to two years, achieving a natural-looking lift and sculpted contour.
Belotero. As we age, wrinkles around the lips and nasolabial folds become deeper and more noticeable, adding years to your appearance. Belotero is designed to evenly smooth and fill in these wrinkles to restore a more youthful overall look.
Radiesse. A non-toxic, non-allergenic and biocompatible dermal filler, Radiesse is designed to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth for up to one year. These include smile lines, chin wrinkles, mild jowls, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. In addition, it can be used to sculpt defined cheekbones, restore lost facial volume and fill in scars.
Restylane. One of the most popular dermal fillers Dr. Ridgway offers, Restylane helps our patients achieve total facial rejuvenation. An extremely versatile filler, it treats wrinkles around the mouth and nose and injects natural-looking volume to correct sagging jowls, enhance a recessive chin, improve the appearance of hollow cheekbones and address bags under the eyes.
Sculptra. The loss of youthful facial fat and volume is one of the most prominent signs of aging, as it creates a hollowed appearance. Fortunately, Sculptra treats deep facial folds and restores lost volume for up to two years, giving you back your youthful and supple overall appearance.Schedule a consultation
