Dermal Fillers: An Uplifting Solution for Your Skin

PureLee Redefined / Juvederm / Dermal Fillers: An Uplifting Solution for Your Skin

Do you recall sucking your cheeks inward to create a thinner looking face? While we’re happy to say goodbye to youthful plumpness when we enter adulthood, there comes a time when we may wish to have some of it back, especially when it comes to the aging skin on our faces.

While we can’t turn back time, PureLee Redefined offers dermal fillers that restore volume by using natural ingredients that are already found in your body. If you’d like to explore how dermal fillers provide an uplifting solution for your skin, read on.

What The Gravity?….Descending Fat Pads

It may seem like just yesterday when you were sucking your cheeks in, trying to offset your plump, round face, and go for a more sultry and mature look. Thanks to the forces of aging, this look does develop as you grow older, but it’s not quite what you had hoped for, leaving you longing for those plump cheeks and lips again.

As you age, there are several forces at play. First, your skin naturally loses collagen and elastin with each passing year, and women may experience a more precipitous drop as they pass through menopause. Whether gradual or sudden, the end result is that your skin is losing the proteins that provide its underlying support, and without them, your skin becomes looser and begins to sag and develop deep lines.

Aging causes the fat pads below the skin’s surface to become thinner and descend downward. When your collagen wanes and fat pads descend, sunken cheeks, thinning lips, sagging jowls, and deep lines around your nose and mouth develop.

Fill ‘er up

To fight back against sagging skin and deep lines, we offer several different dermal fillers that restore volume to your face using hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance already found in your body. The filler is chosen based upon the area and the desired plumpness.

Juvéderm Voluma® XC is used in the cheek area to remedy age-related midface volume loss. Voluma around your cheeks will add volume and lift your skin, restoring vitality and youth. It also masks any filler added to tear trough hollows.  The hyaluronic acid typically lasts for up to two years. The amount of Voluma is highly customizable depending upon the degree of volume loss.

A variety of HA fillers can be used for the lips including Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Volbella® XC, and Revanesse Versa. The filler is chosen by the physician based upon your goals.

Nasolabial folds, marionette lines as well as other areas can be replenished with HA fillers.

We also offer RHA fillers, which are made with a “cleaner” form of HA fillers called Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, or RHA, which is manufactured with fewer chemical modifications. RHA fillers integrate into the surrounding tissue as they fill dynamic facial wrinkles, achieving a smooth, more effortless look by moving with your natural facial expressions.

An uplifting, and safer, solution

Our dermal fillers are FDA-approved, and since they’re made from hyaluronic acid, which is already found in your body, they’re readily accepted and integrated into your skin. Fillers can be dissolved with an enzyme which makes it reversible and safer. The best part is that your results are practically immediate, and it takes very little time for us to administer the dermal fillers. You can come in during your lunch break and leave looking years younger.
