Facial Collagen Injections
As you age, you may notice that your skin has become less “elastic” and is sagging. This is caused by the decrease of collagen production in your body. Collagen is an important protein that acts as the body’s glue, holding tissue together. When your body is not producing new collagen as fast, the bonds between tissue become weaker, which leads to sagging skin, wrinkles, folds, and other imperfections you may notice. At Miami Center for Dermatology, we offer different types of Facial Collagen Injections so you can keep your skin looking young and healthy.
There are various brands of Facial Collagen Injections, so here are some of the ones we carry:
- Restylane: A Restylane injection has immediate results and adds volume to the face, removing severe wrinkles, folds, and lines. A clear gel is inserted into the face that acts as a formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is biocompatible with the body, so it is eventually broken down naturally. This treatment gives patients less discomfort than other traditional treatments.
- Belotero: This is an FDA approved injection that smooths wrinkles and lines on the face. It is also an injectable gel that provides immediate results with no down time, a natural feel, and still allows your normal range of facial movement.
- Sculptra: Made from poly-L-lactic acid, this injection replaces collagen and provides you with results over time, for a natural look. With a fine needle, your doctor will be able to precisely inject the right amounts of material so your results will look naturally effective.
- Juvederm: This is a newer type of Facial Collagen Injections that is also FDA approved. It uses a compound made with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body, to add volume and smooth out wrinkles. There are different variations of Juvederm that you can choose from, depending on the type of results you want.
