Renew your skin from within by activating its natural power of collagen production with full facial contouring. Collagen is a major component in healthy, youthful-looking skin, but it unfortunately diminishes as we age. When collagen production starts to fade (beginning even as early as your mid-20s), fine lines and wrinkles begin to show and skin starts to sag. Our full facial contouring treatment offers a phenomenal option for those who wish to replenish the body’s natural collagen and truly rejuvenate their appearance, and we’re proud to offer this game-changing treatment at all three Project Glammers locations.
Board-certified oculoplastic surgeon and master injector Irene Gladstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., believes that aesthetic artistry and superb clinical skill are inseparable components that lead to results that are loved today, tomorrow, and for years to come. That’s why she offers this treatment option for her patients as well as continues to hold regular trainings for other aesthetic injectors on how best to use the full facial contouring technique.
Bellafill Before & After Gallery
How does full facial contouring work?
Full facial contouring at Project Glammers features two powerhouse products that provide amazing results – Bellafill® and Sculptra®.
Bellafill is an FDA-approved, collagen-based dermal filler that contains polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. PMMA is a biocompatible material that has been safely used in medical implants and other devices for more than 65 years. The injected collagen provides immediate volume but is reabsorbed by the body over time. The PMMA microspheres, however, remain in place and create a supportive base that allows for more of your own collagen to develop, resulting in smoother-looking skin that lasts for years.
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that gradually activates and replaces lost collagen in the skin. After being injected into the targeted area, Sculptra goes to work to boost collagen production in the weeks and months following treatment thanks to a biodegradable, biocompatible, synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA continues to help produce collagen strands in the body over time, resulting in skin wrinkles being reduced or eliminated temporarily. The gradualness of the process is what contributes to natural-looking results that can last.
When both of these injectables are combined through our full facial contouring treatment, transformational magic happens.
Who is a candidate for full facial contouring?
This amazing treatment has been shown to work equally well for men and women of a variety of skin types. Eligible patients must receive a required skin test prior to treatment. Full facial contouring may not be a good option if you have a history of severe allergies, are allergic to bovine collagen or lidocaine, have a bleeding disorder, or are prone to irregular scarring. Our experienced injectors will evaluate your individual situation thoroughly and help you determine if this treatment is the best route to meet your personal aesthetic goals.
Does full facial contouring require any downtime?
Most full facial contouring patients return to their normal activities immediately following their treatment. However, there may be some temporary swelling, redness, discomfort, bruising, lumps, itching, or discoloration at or around the injection sites. These symptoms are most often temporary and resolve within a few days. We’ll discuss any potential side effects at your appointment so you have a clear understanding of what you may expect.
When will I notice results from my full facial contouring treatment?
Results from full facial contouring are both immediate and gradual. The collagen gel starts working immediately to fill in indentions and folds, while the proprietary microspheres involved in treatment continue to add volume over time. Over the course of a few weeks following injections, you’ll begin to notice wrinkles gradually minimized and your skin’s lost volume restored. It may take up to a few months for optimal results to shine through, but most patients say the wait is well worth it.
