17 December 2013Dermal Fillers are becoming an increasingly popular treatment carried out widely to help patients refresh their face by non-surgical means. A Florida-based Cosmetic Surgeon has written an article for a local news website, explaining the benefits which can be achieved, and the various types of filler available. Dr Stephen Prendiville, who runs a practice in Fort Myers, said the types of filler used will often vary, according to factors including the age of the patient, the area of the face being treated, and the result which the patient would like to achieve.Among the treatments he describes are two approved for use by the licensed Cosmetic Nurses working for The Harley Medical Group. Juvederm is a form of Hyaluronic Acid which produces a natural plumping of the lips and can add volume to cheeks due to its ability to attract and retain water. The effects of each treatment can be expected to last six to nine months, Dr Prendiville said. The same substance is also the base for Teyosal, which, because it is man-made, can be produced to a variety of different concentrations, to give results which can be finely tuned according to the needs of each individual patient. As a product found naturally in human skin, Hyaluronic Acid is considered a very safe substance to use and helps to improve skin hydration, stimulate production of collagen in skin and maintain skin elasticity.
