What types of Dermal Fillers And Injectables are offered by Dr. David Stapenhorst?
Two types of Dermal Fillers And Injectables are used by Dr. Stapenhorst. The first type is neuromuscular toxins such as Botox®. Wrinkles and creases on the forehead are caused by the constant movement of the muscles. These toxins block the nerve signals, which temporarily paralyze the muscles. When the muscles are paralyzed, they cannot contract to cause wrinkles and creases.
The second type of Dermal Fillers And Injectables are soft tissue fillers. These products use a variety of substances and techniques to add volume under the skin. The increased volume fills in lines, wrinkles and creases.
What Dermal Fillers And Injectables does Dr. Stapenhorst offer to his patients?
Dr. Stapenhorst offers Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® to his patients. Botox® is a toxin that is injected in the forehead and the area between the eyebrows. Juvederm® and Restylane® are products that contain hyaluronic acid within a gel matrix. This gel filler works to reduce wrinkles and improve the natural contours of the face. Dr. Stapenhorst uses Juvederm® and Restylane® injections to improve moderate to severe wrinkles and enhance the appearance of the lips. Juvederm® and Restylane® treatments for wrinkles typically last for 12 to 18 months, while treatments to the lips typically last six months. Radiesse® contains microspheres that work with the body’s connective tissue to create a structure under the skin. Radiesse® also stimulates the body’s collagen production. The new collagen fills in the structure, giving the skin a fuller, more youthful appearance. By working to replace the body’s natural collagen, Sculptra® produces subtle changes over time.
