When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Dermal fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Naples Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer patients several different dermal filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs.
How Can I Erase My Forehead Wrinkles?The wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes can be smoothed out right in the office. Botox Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment to temporarily reduce the number of lines around the eyes and forehead. It usually lasts 4-5 months and can be used to lift the sagging eyebrows of the forehead. If some of the skin lines do not completely disappear, the addition of hyaluronic fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm can be used to fill the wrinkles and may last up to a year. This is performed in the office as well with local anesthetic to reduce discomfort and swelling. For more information on erasing wrinkles of the face call 239-348-4357.
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and other fine lines. This procedure is most commonly used to treat the glabellar lines, between the forehead and the nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips.
Since Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible right away, and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient’s skin.
When it comes to facial aesthetics, we all have different concerns. Fortunately, the JUVEDERM® Collection of fillers offers a wide range of treatment options that can be customized to your individual needs.

IS YOUR CHIN TAKING OVER YOUR PROFILE?
Maybe that extra fullness beneath your chin is something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the year, or something you noticed recently. This may be a condition called submental fullness, or “double chin”
HOW DOES KYBELLA® injection work?
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. One the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS
Juvederm Injectable Gel is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color. The Juvederm gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant, natural-looking results. There is no pre-testing needed for this procedure.
Topical or injectable anesthesia may be used during this procedure to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. The results of this procedure are available right away and can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product.
