What Are The Best Dermal Fillers For a More Youthful Appearance?

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


If you want to refresh your face without undergoing surgery, dermal fillers might be your best option. Dermal fillers have become incredibly popular since they are safer and less expensive than surgery. Dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi recommends these injections to fill in lines and contours to make the areas appear fuller and plumper. Learn how to make your face look younger and more vibrant through brands such as Sculptra, Juvéderm, and Restylane by scheduling an appointment at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY.

Candidates for aesthetic fillers

As we age, we notice a gradual decrease in volume in the face, leading to unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Some habits such as smoking and sun exposure can also add to an aged appearance. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery uses dermal fillers to bring back the volume time has taken away. When combined with other anti-aging procedures such as wrinkle relaxers, fillers can provide wonderful results. During your consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi, we can determine whether you are a candidate for fillers and select the brands that best meet your goals.

Injectables are a great option for patients that are not ready for invasive measures such as surgery. The best candidates for dermal fillers have moderate to severe wrinkles or other issues such as sunken cheeks or circles under the eyes. There are no age or gender restrictions as long as you are generally healthy and not currently suffering from a skin infection. You should also inform Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff about any medications you may be taking that could affect your outcome, such as blood thinners. We will let you know what kind of side effects to expect as a result of the products.

Sculptra around the mouth, Juvéderm, and Restylane

Different formulas are available at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery to treat a variety of issues. Our patients in Louisville, KY have received successful results for treating Crow’s feet, eyebrow lines, frown lines, and loss of fullness in the cheeks and lips. For example, Sculptra around the mouth can produce a fuller, more gorgeous smile. Some fillers even include anesthetics to make you feel more comfortable throughout the session.

Although fillers are much safer than surgical treatments, injections do come with risks and side effects. Dr. Mizuguchi will help reduce these risks by choosing the right filler for your treatment in Louisville, KY. Below are some of the most popular options:

  • Restylane: this hyaluronic acid (HA) filler targets deep lines in the face and adds volume to the cheeks and lips

  • Juvéderm XC: an injectable for smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose

  • Sculptra: fills in deep lines and depressions that develop as you age and adds fullness to sunken skin

The effects of dermal fillers

As we stated before, you should expect some mild side effects as a result of dermal fillers. This includes redness and some swelling that lasts for the rest of the day. One of our staff members can offer some simple instructions to follow to ease these effects, such as sleeping with your head slightly elevated at night. We also suggest using a cold compress at home. If you have questions or concerns about the injections, we are happy to address them when you call our office in Louisville.

Dermal fillers are among the safest methods for treating wrinkles and similar issues, and appointments for receiving fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane only take about 30 – 45 minutes of your day! At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, we can help you achieve the appearance you want, whether you prefer subtle changes to the face or more dramatic results. Best of all, some dermal fillers are reversible, so if you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can return to have the filler dissolved easily and safely.
