Aesthetic Dermatology Q & A

Coastal Family Dermatology

What are dermal fillers and how do they work?

Dermal fillers are among the most exciting advancements in aesthetic dermatology. These non-invasive fillers help restore lost fullness to your face, providing a healthy and youthful appearance.

Fillers work by introducing safe materials under your skin at varying depths, depending on the injection site and your desired outcome. The injections also boost your body’s natural collagen production.

Here are some of the most common uses for dermal fillers:

  • Soften creases and wrinkles
  • Plump lips
  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Reconstruct facial deformities
  • Plump shallow contours
  • Lessen shadow from the lower lids

Which dermal fillers are available?

Coastal Family Dermatology offers two kinds of dermal fillers: Belotero BalanceⓇ and RadiesseⓇ.

Belotero Balance is made of hyaluronic acid, which absorbs water and delivers nutrients to your skin.

Radiesse uses microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel to create plumpness and stimulates natural collagen production. Over time, your body metabolizes the calcium hydroxylapatite, and the newly produced collagen remains in place.

Aside from dermal fillers, Coastal Family Dermatology also offers ZOⓇ Skin Health products.

What is ZO Skin Health?

ZO Skin Health is a line of skin care products that are formulated using the latest advancements in skin therapy technologies. Offered only through your physician, these products deliver impressive results that last.

The system offers a bridge between the aesthetic treatments only available through your doctor’s office and the power of daily skin care. With so many options crowding the drugstore shelves, many people appreciate the peace of mind that comes with choosing a dermatologist-approved skin care system.

Products in the line include cleansers, toners, pore treatments, serums, and a range of moisturizers. There are formulations for all skin types, and for targeting acne, dark spots, and fine lines or wrinkles.
