A major contributor to facial aging is loss of volume. Older skin produces less collagen, skin gets lax, and lines and wrinkles form. Cosmetic fillers restore a more youthful look by giving your face more volume. At Alpenglow Pain & Wellness in Anchorage, Alaska, Dr. Nichelle C. Renk offers a range of cosmetic fillers to help you look and feel your best at every age. Request an appointment over the phone to learn more today.

Cosmetic Filler

What are cosmetic fillers?

Cosmetic fillers are a popular, minimally invasive treatment to address lines and wrinkles. They counteract loss of volume that’s common with age by adding volume below the surface of your skin.

Fillers get their name because they fill in space under the skin to make wrinkles and creases appear less noticeable. They are also used to lift sunken cheeks and plump thin lips.

Different cosmetic fillers use different substances to restore volume lost due to age, but some of the most common are hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, and collagen. The results you achieve with cosmetic fillers can last anywhere from four months to more than one year.

What signs of aging can cosmetic fillers improve?

Decreasing facial volume is the cause of many of the most common signs of aging. As you age, your skin loses elasticity and bounce. Facial fat disappears and collagen protein production decreases.

Cosmetic fillers can improve the look of concerns like:

  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines
  • Parentheses around the mouth
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thinning lips
  • Shadows under lower eyelids

Fillers lift your facial features and restore a more youthful look. Some fillers stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to enhance results even further.

Are cosmetic fillers right for me?

Many men and women who are bothered by signs of aging skin — from sagging skin to loss of volume — can benefit from cosmetic fillers. Dr. Renk recommends the right cosmetic filler for your skin needs and aesthetic goals.

She assesses your skin concerns and develops a customized cosmetic filler treatment plan for you. The number of injections and frequency of treatments she suggests may vary depending on your age, skin, and goals.

What can I expect if I get cosmetic fillers?

In most cases, your results are immediate with cosmetic filler treatment. You can expect to leave the office with a more youthful appearance, no matter your age. 

Downtime is minimal with cosmetic fillers, so you can return to your normal activities shortly after treatment.
