Dermal fillers are one of the most affordable and long-lasting treatments for skin wrinkles. With little to no downtime, fillers will immediately boost the appearance of the skin and improve skin texture over time. Dr. Forley performs many cosmetic treatments on patients of all ages, and continues to receive positive reviews and feedback for his skill. For issues of fine lines that needn't be addressed through painful and costly surgeries, dermal fillers are the preferred choice. The usual places to have treated are around the eyes, the cheek, the forehead, and smile lines (also known as the nasolabial fold). Dr. Forley uses mainly two categories of dermal fillers in his practice, both FDA-approved as safe and highly effective, and both that are completely void of animal proteins to avoid necessitating skin testing for allergies.
Hyaluronic acid is a compound naturally present throughout the skin. In addition to collagen and elastin fibers, hyaluronic acid is a major component of the deeper skin layer known as the dermis. Juvederm™, Restylane®, Perlane®, and BELOTERO BALANCE® are injectable hyaluronic acid fillers that add volume to the skin and thereby benefit the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Depending on the area that needs to be treated, Dr. Forley will select the appropriate filler and layer it carefully beneath the skin surface using a sterile, fine tipped needle. Minor short term bruising and swelling may occur but you may resume most activities almost immediately. Results following treatment can last up to a year.
Radiesse is a relatively new compound that consists of calcium-based microspheres. A new development in filler technology, Radiesse actually stimulates the surrounding tissues to generate more fibrous connections, tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of surface wrinkles and fine lines. Applied in much the same way as the traditional filler, there is minimal risk to Radiesse injections with little to no side effects. Radiesse is will naturally degrade into harmless compounds over time and be absorbed by the body, allowing the skin's natural rejuvenation to take over
