Dr. Theresa Jarmuz believes in doing everything she can for her patients, and for herself, without surgery. For this reason, she has made the use of injectable fillers a major part of her practice in Atlanta. Collagen, a naturally-occurring substance that supports the skin and keeps it looking healthy, breaks down over time, causing facial wrinkling and hollowness. To replace lost collagen and even help the body replace its own natural collagen, injectable fillers can be used for a wide variety of purposes from plumping lips to reducing wrinkles.
Dr. Theresa M. Jarmuz is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon offering a variety of surgical and non-invasive facial cosmetic procedures. To learn more about injectable fillers and other procedures to reduce the signs of aging, request your consultation with Dr. Jarmuz online or call her office at (404) 233-3937.
She is one of the few facial plastic surgeons in the Atlanta area who uses a blunt-tip cannula instead of a sharp needle during certain injectable procedures. Using a micro-cannula requires specialized training and helps limit the bruising and swelling that sometimes accompanies filler injections. It is especially useful when treating the areas under the eyes, called tear troughs, where Dr. Jarmuz can make a single injection rather than several.
Dr. Jarmuz offers several different FDA-approved dermal fillers in Atlanta: Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Sculptra® Aesthetic, COSMODERM®, COSMOPLAST® and RADIESSE®.
Restylane and Hydrelle™
Made with hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally by your skin to add volume and moisture, they can reduce wrinkles and add volume to facial features such as lips and cheeks. The results of treatments with Restylane or Hydrelle typically last between 2 to 9 months.
JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel
Also made with hyaluronic acid, this smooth-consistency gel provides a very natural-looking result that lasts up to 1 year. JUVÉDERM is particularly effective at reducing the visibility of nasolabial folds, also referred to as "smile lines" or "parentheses." Now, new JUVÉDERM XC provides volume enhancement (for wrinkles and lips) without the "ouch," thanks to the addition of lidocaine. Learn more about JUVÉDERM®.
VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. You should be able to resume your normal activities after 24 hours.
Dr. Jarmuz is a National Trainer for Sculptra Aesthetic and is the #1 injector in Georgia. This injectable treatment is made with poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that actually stimulates collagen growth to minimize the visibility of smile lines, wrinkles on the sides of your mouth (marionette lines), and chin wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works gradually after several injection sessions and can last up to 2 years, longer than most injectable treatments. Learn more about Sculptra Aesthetic.
COSMODERM, COSMOPLAST and EVOLENCE®
These fillers are made with purified human collagen. Atlanta facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jarmuz uses COSMODERM, COSMOPLAST and/or EVOLENCE to reduce fine lines and add definition to the lip border. The results typically last 3 to 6 months.
RADIESSE is a calcium hydroxyapetite filler material useful for filling deeper folds in the face and also for giving structure and volume to those areas that have been depleted. In addition, we can also use it to rejuvenate the back of the hands where aging skin may have been neglected in the past. RADIESSE has been shown to last at least a year and contributes to increased collagen within the deeper layers of the skin allowing for long-lasting and natural results.
Injection with dermal fillers is virtually painless and can be performed right in Dr. Jarmuz's office. After your injection, you may return to your normal activities right away and, with the exception of Sculptra Aesthetic, see results immediately. Occasionally, men and women will experience some swelling or bruising after their injection, but these will fade quickly.
Surgical & Non-Surgical Alternatives
In addition to dermal fillers, Dr. Jarmuz also offers other non-surgical procedures for the treatment of wrinkles: chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and BOTOX® Cosmetic in Atlanta. For more dramatic and permanent results, Dr. Jarmuz performs surgical procedures such as brow lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift and face lift for her Atlanta patients.
