As we age, many of us become self-conscious about the appearance of our face. We may feel as though fine lines and wrinkles caused by skin laxity are making us look considerably older than we really are. Deep folds and creases on the forehead and around the mouth and nose, known as laugh lines and nasolabial folds, can become deep and unsightly. These wrinkles and folds are a result of many years of laughing and smiling, as well as skin laxity and collagen loss. Although some patients might think that the only way to address these concerns is with plastic surgery, other options are much less invasive, including include injectables.
Injections come in a wide range of types and solutions, and Dr. Matthew Doppelt at Southeastern Dermatology provides new and existing patients with several options. For some, dermal fillers are best, and Knoxville area residents may be introduced to injectables such as Radiesse.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler that has been approved by the FDA for moderate to severe folds and creases on the face, and can be injected during a single appointment at Southeastern Dermatology. Patients can book a consultation appointment with Dr. Matthew Doppelt to find out if this filler is best for their specific needs. Then, he can provide the injections during the same appointment, allowing patients to go on with the rest of their day without interruption. Radiesse injections, as well as many other dermal fillers, are non-invasive and do not require any downtime or healing.
Radiesse is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally occurring in the skin. It attracts water, therefore adding volume wherever it is injected. It is thick enough to provide filling for deep folds and the results can last many months.
At Southeastern Dermatology in Knoxville, we offer a wide range of dermal fillers and injectables and encourage patients who are interested in solutions for aging to contact our practice and book an appointment. Dr. Matthew Doppelt welcomes patients to his facility to educate themselves on alternatives to surgical facelifts
