Dermal Fillers


Dermal Fillers

Women and men in the Miami area are increasingly seeing our spa for natural, subtle, beautiful but believable results with dermal fillers.

It’s important to realize that wrinkles themselves are invisible to the human eye. What you see is the shadow created by the uneven contours of the skin caused by the underlying wrinkle. The key to a youthful face is to minimize these shadows and to smooth transitions on the face.

      Understanding Your Filler Options

      There are many fillers to choose from, and sometimes it can be difficult to determine which filler is right for you. Here are a few tips to point you in the right direction. Don’t worry, though, because our specialist evaluates each of his patients in person, determines their specific cosmetic concerns, provides a list of recommendations, and creates a customized cosmetic treatment. We offer all the latest FDA-approved dermal fillers and we always add newer fillers to our practice as they are approved.
      Here at Solea Brickell Spa we offer Restylane Kisse, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Versa, Kybela , Aquagold and Sculptra soon after their initial FDA approval.

      • Juvéderm Fillers – These fillers are the most popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers. They are ideal for treating a range of aesthetic concerns including lines, folds, and volume loss. The Juvéderm family of fillers includes Juvéderm Ultra/ Ultra Plus, Juvéderm Voluma, and Juvéderm Volbella. 
      • Restylane Family of Fillers – Similar to Juvederm, Restylane soften lines and wrinkles. This is our  go-to-filler for the undereye volume loss, tear troughs, and dark circles. There are a variety of Restylane fillers such as Restylane Silk, Lyft, Defyne, Refyne, Kysse and Contour, each designed with their own unique purpose.
      • Belotero – Silky consistency for superficial lines and undereye dark circles and volume loss.
      • Radiesse – Tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite provide immediate volume, and stimulate on-going production of fresh collagen. Also works great for rejuvenating your hands!
      • Sculptra – Poly-L-lactic acid is great for panfacial revolumization. It stimulates your body to produce it own collagen for gradual, long-lasting rejuvenation.

      What Areas On The Face Are Fillers Used To Treat?

      Our specialists are experts in facial aesthetics. We use advanced injection techniques based on years of training and experience and injecting areas on the face not typically injected by the amateur or untrained injector. Here is a list of areas he may address with fillers:

      • Lips and perioral lines (lipstick lines, upper lip lines) – add volume to lips, hydrate lips, soften lines
      • Corners of mouth – reverse the downturn of the corners of the mouth seen with aging
      • Marionette lines – Soften the shadows below the corners of the mouth
      • Nasolabial folds – fill in smile lines
      • Cheeks/Midface – restore volume to the cheeks, lift the face, and emphasize the cheek bones
      • Jawline – sharpen the jawline and minimize the appearance of the jowls
      • Prejowl – treat the area of volume loss just in front of the jowl but to the side of the chin
      • Temples – treat the scalloped appearance of the upper face due to volume loss in this area
      • Undereyes – improve dark circles caused by volume loss and prominent tear troughs
      • Frown lines – used in combination with Botox
      • Forehead lines – for deep lines on the forehead which Botox itself cannot completely treat
      • Neck lines – filler in “necklace lines” on the neck
      • Hands – treat volume loss in the hands caused by aging; reduce appearance of veins and tendons in the hands

      How Long Do The Results From Fillers Last?

      Of course, it is important to remember that every patient’s body is different and every patient can respond differently to the fillers based on such factors as diet, exercise, baseline metabolism, sun-exposure, and smoking. In general we recommend maintenance treatments so that the results never completely return to baseline.

      We also recommend that all patients start an at-home skincare regimen to maintain their results. This regimen usually includes a combination of antioxidants, sunscreen, moisturizers, and retinol.

      General guidelines for filler longevity based on our experience using these products for our patients is as follows:

      • Restylane Silk – 4-6 months
      • Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne – 9-12 months
      • Restylane – 9-12 months
      • Restylane Lyft – 9-12 months
      • Restylane Kysse – Up to 12 months
      • Restylane Contour – Up to 12 months
      • Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm UltraPlus – 9-12 months
      • Juvederm Voluma – 9-15 months
      • Juvederm Volbella – 6-12 months
      • Radiesse – 9-12 months
      • Sculptra – 24 + months

      A filler may last a longer or shorter duration on different parts of the face. For example, the lips tend to have lots of movement and so filler breaks down faster. The undereyes, cheeks, and temples have less movement and so filler injected in these parts of the face usually last longer.

      The times listed above may differ from what the individual manufacturers (Allergan, Galderma, Merz) have on their own websites or literature.

      For younger patients, it is also important to note that by starting injectable treatments early, a patient can prevent signs of aging and postpone the need for surgical interventional indefinitely.
