While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, lax and aging skin are probably not what people were talking about. Symmetrical, youthful and fillerssmooth skin are promoted every day. So, where does that leave you? Easy. At Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center, located in Lapeer and Rochester, MI, doctors provide patients with dermal fillers to regain and rejuvenate that youthful look.

What are injectable dermal fillers?

For several years collagen was the first and only FDA approved filler consisting of highly purified bovine, a dermal tissue extracted from cows.

A new filler was later developed that had only one percent rejection rate and contained human collagen. There was simultaneously a popular silicone filler removed from the market when silicone was banned from being used in breast implants.

Today, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation, are popular. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins and don't require skin testing because they're already found in the body. The transparent gel is injected into facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smoothen folds.

What are other dermal fillers used in the USA?

Restylane received FDA approval in 2003, as well as other cosmetic fillers such as Perlane, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma

You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Lapeer and Rochester doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.

Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.

Here are the phone numbers to contact your doctors at either location:
