Dermal fillers smooth facial folds and deep wrinkles and add volume to hollowed areas of the face. They can be combined with injectables like Botox for an even more dramatic anti-aging rejuvenation.
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with HYLACROSS™ technology which infuses the filler with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that is used in many fillers because it gives the skin structure and a firm texture. Juvéderm can be used in the following areas:
Juvéderm offers several different types of fillers each designed specially for different areas of the face. On average, Juvéderm lasts about one year but certain products like Juvéderm Vollure XC and Juvéderm Volume XC can last 18-24 months.
Like Juvéderm, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler with many product variations, each designed with an innovative technology that gives each product a different particle size for different sized areas. Restylane products can smooth deep wrinkles and folds or restore volume in the following areas:
Restylane offers some immediate improvements, but the complete results may take 4-6 weeks to develop since hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen production. After 2 treatments, results can last for up to 18 months.
Sculptra is a unique type of filler made from collagen stimulating poly-L lactic acid. This is a biodegradable substance naturally found in the body so there is no possibility of an allergic reaction. Sculptra can be used on the face and body for:
Sculptra results take a few months to develop but once the volume has been restored, these results last up to 2 years!
If you are unhappy with the results of your filler, you can dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers with hyaluronidase, a synthetic form of an enzyme that naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid in the body. Only hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved with this treatment. Different types of hyaluronic acid dissolve differently but most patients will see results within a few days. 1-2 treatment sessions may be needed.
Almost anyone who wants to rejuvenate their facial contours with natural-looking results is a candidate for dermal fillers. The area of concern you wish to treat will determine which dermal filler is your best option. Our team will discuss this in more detail with you while discussing your cosmetic goals at your consultation.
Recovery after dermal filler treatment is minimal. A topical anesthetic may be used to maximize your comfort, but the numbing effects wear off quickly and you can resume most of your normal activities. It is recommended you avoid strenuous activity like exercise for a few days while the filler settles.
Minor swelling and bruising around the injection site are common but will resolve within a few days. Results may be gradual, but you can enjoy a more youthful appearance for several months or even years, depending on the filler you receive.
