Expression, newest Dermal Filler
What is Expression and what does it do?
Expression is considered a third generation hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler. Like other HA dermal fillers, Expression is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in the human body.
Expression is unique in that it is the first HA to be produced with a pathogen free medium, Bacillus Subtilis,
and uses a water-based process, free of organic solvents such as ethanol, and without the use of animal derived materials.
Who Makes Expression?
Expression by Enhancement Medical, was developed by some of the original creators of the injectable Radiesse, which has been used as a dermal filler for many years. Over the last decade, hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar, has become a favored anti-aging, cosmetic injection dermal filler, used for replenishing areas of the face and lips where the skin’s volume and fullness has diminished with aging.
Where is Expression used?
Because of its specialized cross-linking and compound, Expression can be used for more shallow injections and finer lines, as well as into deeper folds, wrinkles, and the lips. It can also be used under the eyes or into the cheeks to add volume. Depending upon the site of injection and the patient’s specific volume loss, multiple syringes may be needed for full effects.
What kind of results can I expect from an Expression treatment?
Expression provides a smooth, natural look and feel to sites where it is injected. The patient should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas with minimal bruising or swelling and has been shown to last 6 months or more. Dr Epstein injects Expression into the necessary areas of the skin to restore the patient’s skin volume and smooth away facial wrinkles, lines, folds, and to add volume.
Why is Expression different than other fillers?
The scientific compound of this HA filler is different in that it doesn’t draw water to itself upon injection. Other HA fillers draw water to them, so patients can be a bit more swollen post-injection. With less swelling, that means less downtime for the patient, and a better understanding of what the final result will look like right after the injection is complete.
