Men and women who spot the early signs of aging on the face and want to discuss non-surgical options can call our board-certified professional at Queen City Plastic Surgery. Dr. Haque can provide alternatives such as hyaluronic acid injectables, otherwise referred to as “dermal fillers.” Hyaluronic acid can add volume where it is needed, specifically in fine lines and wrinkles of the face.
What injectables are available at Queen City Plastic Surgery?
Some of the hyaluronic acid fillers used by Dr. Enam Haque include the following brands:
- Juvederm Voluma XC
Which hyaluronic acid is best?
Hyaluronic acids vary in density and strength, allowing some to work better in specific areas of the face versus others. During an evaluation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, patients will learn about the pros and cons of each hyaluronic acid filler and how it is used to enhance facial features. Many of these injectables can be combined with other therapies, including Facetite treatments or Botox injections, for a more dramatic improvement in one’s appearance.
How long do hyaluronic acid fillers last?
Many patients are concerned about how long their results will last after receiving their initial injections. Hyaluronic acid fillers can last several months before they start absorbing naturally into the body. These injectables are not meant to be a long-term option in the same way as plastic surgery. Instead, they are best suited for patients with the early signs of aging who are not quite ready to have invasive surgeries performed to maintain their youthful image. Patients often return every few months for touch-up treatments and slow the formation of fine lines and wrinkles caused by natural skin laxity.
How do I find out which treatment is right for me?
If you have fine lines or creases and want to find out if hyaluronic acid fillers are more appropriate for your needs, it’s time to book an appointment with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Enam Haque.
