The use of fillers in cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery has blossomed in the last decade. Dr. Ort has developed a reputation in Denver as a true master in the use of fillers to smooth facial lines and restore lost volume. To be a great filler injector, one must be an artist and appreciate the idealized human form as well as the changes that occur with age.
Fillers which are commonly used by Dr. Ort in Denver include Restylane®, Juvederm™ Ultra, Radiesse®, and Sculptra®. These fillers are used to augment and restore lost volume to the cheeks, under eye hollows, temples, lips, and corners of the mouth. Individual lines can also be filled, such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines. Fillers also work well for hand rejuvenation, where they can help hide the veins and tendons that stick out with age. A few simple injections can dramatically revitalize your appearance without the need for surgery.
A question which patients commonly ask is, “Which filler is best for me?” An important point to keep in mind is that the injector is more important than the actual type of filler. An experienced injector can achieve excellent results with any of the FDA-approved fillers. The most commonly used fillers are Restylane and Juvederm, both hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a safe, naturally-occurring substance which binds water and gives the skin its fullness. Another excellent filler is Radiesse, which works with your body to stimulate the production of new collagen and form support "scaffolding" for the skin. Sculptra represents a unique filler which stimulates the growth of new collagen and is used to restore volume to the cheeks, temples, and around the mouth and chin.
Many patients choose to combine filler injections with Botox treatment to reduce lines on their face. Used in combination with fillers, Botox satisfies the growing demand for effective, safe, and minimal downtime cosmetic treatment in Denver.
