How Fillers Actually Stimulate Collagen Production

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® boast many youth-preserving benefits, from smoothing facial lines to restoring lost volume. But, did you know that these fillers also actually stimulate your body’s own collagen production? 

That’s right… fillers aren’t just occupying empty space! Not only do they stimulate collagen production, but they do so robustly according to a study published in 2007 in the Archives of Dermatology. Researchers were shocked when they realized just how much new collagen was present in areas where fillers were injected within just a couple of months after treatment. Read More

Why PRP is Preferred Over Filler for the Under Eye Area

Under Eye AreaThe eye area is one of the most delicate areas of the face. The skin is thinner and more sensitive around the eyes, as well as more vulnerable to signs of aging. Hollows under the eyes can give the face a tired, aging appearance, even after a restful night’s sleep. So, many people seek out cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the under-eye area.

Dermal fillers and PRP are both injectable treatments to rejuvenate the skin. Dermal fillers work by plumping the skin with a hyaluronic acid solution. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is derived from the patient’s own blood and works by stimulating the skin’s natural repair process.  Read More

Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox for Optimum Results

Palm Harbor Medical Spa

Dermal fillers and Botox have been the gold standard for adding volume and reducing wrinkles for over a   decade, but have you considered using the two together? Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox in one treatment session can give you some excellent results that you can’t achieve with one or the other alone.

What Juvederm Ultra Does 

Juvederm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is appropriate for use in the cheeks, mouth, and lips. The dermal filler smooths out fine lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (laugh or frown lines) and the lips and mouth. While the dermal filler plumps the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas, it does not prevent the lines and wrinkles from coming back but does help build collagen.  Results may vary but typically lasts for about a year.   Read More

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport: Choosing the Right Neurotoxin Injection
