Skin Care Saginaw | Facial Fillers Saginaw

Injectable facial fillers are a great way to restore lost volume in your face without surgery. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the tissue under the skin starts to thin, causing our faces to sag or wrinkle. Often people describe their look as sad, tired, or worn. Dermal fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm can replace that lost volume. And hyaluronic acid fillers have been shown to stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. The benefits of facial filler treatments are not permanent.  For the very best results, Dr. Weiss suggests patients visit three to four times a year to maintain their appearance.

To see whether you may be a candidate for dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation, look in the mirror without smiling. If there are any areas that have deep lines or wrinkles, perhaps a hollowing under the eyes or a line between the brows, those are areas that would be best served with fillers.

Fillers aren’t only used to fill deep lines and creases, Dr. Weiss also uses fillers on younger people to plump up their lips, augment their cheekbones, perform a liquid nose job, correct the effects of acne scarring, and more.

Botulinum Toxin, which goes by the brand names: Botox and Dysport, is not a filler. It is used to smooth active lines. These products can be used in conjunction with fillers because they serve a very different purpose. To check if you may be a candidate for Botox or Dysport, look in the mirror and frown, smile or move your forehead up and down. If you are unhappy with the lines you see: frown lines, crows feet, forehead furrows, skin bands on the neck, etc. then these products may be right for you.

Dr. Weiss offers a full line of facial fillers and chemical peels for his patients. Contact his office at 989-753-2601 to schedule your appointment.
