What are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers (dermal fillers) have revolutionized the approach to improving facial appearance. They add fullness and restore volume to severe facial folds and wrinkles. Unlike BOTOX® which eliminates wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscle, these products work by stimulating collagen production and adding volume to the skin and restore lost volume to areas such as the chin, cheeks, and lips.
Candidates for Facial Fillers
Individuals who are unhappy with signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines can turn back the clock with a variety of facial fillers. Contact our office for your personal consultation and to learn more about the injectable treatments right for you.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can correct asymmetry, minimize circles under the eyes, improve acne scars, reverse the appearance of aging, and improve the contours of the skin, giving patients a well-rested, youthful appearance. Almost all visible signs of aging can be improved with the use of fillers.
We offer several different types of facial fillers, each of which has unique properties that allow our specialist to tailor the treatment to meet each patient’s distinct aesthetic needs.
Juvederm is an injectable gel that restores volume to the skin and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body that delivers nutrients and hydration to the skin. This dermal filler is most effective in improving the appearance of nasolabial folds. These are the folds that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth. The results of Juvederm can last 6 to 9 months. At our office, we offer the full product line of Juvederm, including Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, and Juvederm Voluma.
If you have thin lips and are looking for some more definition and fullness, Juvederm Volbella is for you. Volbella is a filler that is tailored to add volume to the lips, while still looking natural. Volbells can also improve vertical lip lines. This form of Juvederm can last up to one year.
For moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, Vollure can bring back that elasticity in the face that is lost due to aging. Vollure will smooth out those parentheses lines that form from the corner of the nose down to the mouth. Vollure will produce subtle results that can last up to 18 months.
Juvederm would work best for you if you are looking to add some more volume to your cheeks. As we age, our cheeks begin to flatten. Voluma can correct this by adding volume underneath the surface of the skin to lift and contour the cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is the only filler that is proven to last for two years.
Dermal Filler Results
You will notice results immediately after your injections, but most patients see the full effects within about three days. Most facial fillers are temporary, lasting about three or four months. Our specialist will discuss follow-up injections that provide best results designed specifically for your needs.
How Much Do Facial Fillers Cost?
Because there are different types for different needs, facial filler costs will vary. You’ll want to discuss your specific goals and treatment areas with our specialist and she will be able to lead you in the right direction based on your desired outcome.
