Do I Need Fillers or Skin Tightening?

There are many non-surgical treatments designed to address facial aging. Dermal fillers and skin tightening are some of the most popular options. But how do you know which one is right for you?

If you want to correct multiple age-related concerns, you’ll likely need both of these services. Since each treatment is designed to tackle different problems, a combined approach offers the most comprehensive results. When used together, fillers and skin tightening can be a great way to achieve a more youthful look without surgery.

Common Signs of Aging

Age changes your appearance in more ways than one. Some of the most common signs of facial aging include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Hollows beneath the eyes
  • Thinning lips
  • Flat cheeks
  • Sagging skin
  • Uneven skin texture

Non-surgical treatments can address all of these concerns. However, one treatment can’t do it all. Combining services is the ideal way to tackle multiple signs of aging for a more youthful, natural-looking appearance.

What Fillers Can and Can’t Do

Fillers such as Juvederm are an excellent way to reverse age-related volume loss. Volume loss happens over time, as the fat below the skin’s surface gets thinner and descends. Fortunately, fillers can restore lost volume and enhance your natural contours for a fresh-faced look.

Dermal fillers can also be a good choice for temporarily improving facial wrinkles. Once injected, these products reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for a smoother look. 

Fillers are a great solution to some concerns. However, they cannot adequately address all signs of facial aging.

Relying on fillers for everything can create unnatural looking results. And since a syringe of filler can only do so much, an injectable-heavy approach can get expensive. For these reasons, Dr. Weiss often suggests that patients incorporate skin tightening as part of their anti-aging treatment plans.

Combining Treatments for Optimal Results

Skin tightening and fillers are often an excellent combination for patients looking to correct multiple signs of aging. While fillers restore volume and fill lines, skin tightening treatments can address issues of sagging and laxity.

Dr. Weiss offers multiple non-surgical skin tightening services at his practice. Options include CO2 laser treatments and microneedling with radiofrequency. Requiring little to no downtime, these treatments stimulate collagen and elastin production for firmer, more toned skin.

Dr. Weiss will design a customized plan for achieving your cosmetic goals with fillers and skin tightening. The different treatments may or may not take place during the same appointment. You may also need a series of appointments to see the optimal cosmetic outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Weiss will explain the ideal treatment order and frequency of sessions for your situation.
