What is a Dermal Filler

dermal fillerIn cosmetic dermatology, a dermal filler is a substance used to inject into the skin to add plumpness. Usually it is utilized to fill in and plump the skin where a wrinkle occurs. Making the skin appear smoother. Common dermal fillers include Restylane and Juvederm.

At Crutchfield Dermatology we use both of these dermal fillers as well as many more cosmetic dermatology treatments together to create a wonderful skin program for each of our patients. Dr. Charles Crutchfield is masterful with his use of combining treatments to achieve the look of a face lift, all without any surgery.

Skin Treatment for Wrinkles

Cosmetic Dermatology TreatmentsThere are a plethora of options for smoothing fine lines and skin wrinkles. At Crutchfield Dermatology we provide wonderful cosmetic dermatology treatments. Here’s just a few of them:

Botox is used primarily on the forehead and around the eyes to lessen wrinkles and fine lines. It is injected into the muscle that is causing the wrinkle. Results last 3-7 months. See more info about Minneapolis Botox Cosmetic

Unlike Botox, which interacts with the underlying muscle, Restylane is a wrinkle filler that plumps up the skin with Hyaluronic Acid. Which is a natural occurring substance in everyone’s skin. It lessens as we age. Restylane is very popular used for lines and wrinkles around the mouth as well as a lip plumping injection. See more info about Restylane

The Latest in Fillers: Your Own Blood?

vampire faceliftby Shellie Terry Benson, Editor,

We first told you about Selphyl, a type of facial filler made from your own blood, in April 2010. At the time, the procedure sounded promising, but results were yet to be seen. Now, doctors across the country are reporting great outcomes as more and more of them add it to their arsenal of anti-aging strategies.

For those looking for something more natural than a neurotoxin or synthetic filler to restore youthful-looking skin, their own blood platelets may be the answer. “It’s completely natural, in fact it is the most natural filling agent available because it is derived from your own plasma. It’s essentially you helping you,” reports Eagan, MN, dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield, III, who was the first physician in Minnesota to offer it. “All indication indicates that it works as well as the other current filling agents. It actually costs about half as much as the current fillers on the market.”

During the 30- to 45-minute procedure, which is sometimes called the “vampire facelift,” a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets that are used to create platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When injected under problem areas, like crow’s-feet or under the eyes, it’s believed to stimulate new cell growth and restore volume. There’s almost no downtime, although a cold press may be used to ease initial swelling.

Other areas it’s been used include under the cheeks, around the mouth and in pock-marked skin caused by acne. The technology may have other implications as well, such as supporting hair transplantation.

Since PRP is made from the patient’s own blood, the chance of rejection or allergic reaction is virtually none. Plus, results can last up to 18 months. The injected PRP is said to start boosting collagen production right away, and results can be seen anywhere from 10 days to three weeks.

Have you tried this procedure, or are you considering it? We’d love to hear about your results.

Juvederm Can Do For You

It can be used to fill in such fine lines and wrinkles as frown lines, smile lines (crow’s feet) around the eyes, lines on the cheeks along the nose, and lines around the mouth and in the lips for a more lush, plump appearance.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.

Dr. Crutchfield performs the process of easing the gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds- the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvederm can complement the action of BOTOX® Cosmetic, making the results even more dramatic and longer lasting.
