Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are special formulations of hyaluronic acid that plump your skin and help fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Your nurse practitioners use them to fill in around your eyes, lips, cheeks, jawline, and mouth.

What else do dermal fillers do?

At Maria Cole Family Care, in addition to filling in wrinkles, your nurse practitioner uses a variety of dermal fillers to:

  • Fill in nasolabial folds
  • Fill increases
  • Smooth acne scars
  • Lift jowls
  • Restore volume
  • Lift cheeks
  • Plump lips

Talk to your provider about your areas of concern so she can pinpoint your treatment.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your skin and is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping your tissues well lubricated. When used in cosmetic treatments or supplements, it has a number of important benefits, such as:

  • Improves skin’s suppleness
  • Eases joint pain
  • Relieves itchy, dry eyes
  • Supports bone strength

Hyaluronic acid has many healthful benefits and is included in many of the products preferred by Maria Cole, FNP and Kelly Wenger, FNP. The type of dermal filler that will benefit you best depends on your specific needs and problem areas. Your nurse practitioner guides your decisions so you can get the best skin care return on your aesthetic investment.

What is BotoxⓇ?

Botox is a medical derivative of Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that can cause paralysis. When used under the supervision of your health care provider and in controlled doses, Botox is useful for relaxing muscles.

For aesthetic purposes, it’s a popular skin care treatment that helps diminish:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Neck creases
  • Smoker’s lines

Unlike dermal fillers, Botox does not fill in fine lines and wrinkles but rather relaxes the muscles responsible for them.

What is XeominⓇ?

Touted as an alternative to Botox, Xeomin also works as a neuromodulator. It interrupts the signal between the muscle and nerve and makes the muscles relax. It takes about 5-7 days for the injected Xeomin to take full effect. Results last for about five months.
