As we age, our skin loses the volume and elasticity that is inherent with youth. And it comes time to face up to the facts – our skin just can’t bounce back as easily as it could in our 20’s. Over time, the skin can slowly start to sag, causing wrinkles, excess skin and volume loss.
Injectable fillers, often also referred to as injectable volumizers, do just that – they restore lost volume and fullness to the face, delivering natural, youthful looking results. With fillers, the most widely used being Juvederm and Restalyne, you can get back to looking as young as you feel – after all, age is just a number!
Injectables are often formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that can boost the production of collagen, which is associated with anti-aging. Areas of the face treated with injectables, can not only fill lost volume, but can also stimulate natural collagen, which lends added structure.
Juvéderm Ultra is an injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body. This treatment acts to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds with natural looking results for up to twelve months. Juvéderm Ultra is uniquely designed to increase volume and improve the appearance of nasolabial folds (smile lines) around the nose and mouth. This non-surgical filler additionally contains 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize patient discomfort during treatment.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a denser injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid that is specifically designed for lip augmentation and to improve the appearance around the mouth for a period of twelve months. This non-surgical treatment also contains 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize patient discomfort during treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body that is uniquely designed to address age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face. This is the perfect treatment for individuals wanting long-term results to combat sagging in the cheek area, without undergoing surgical intervention. Juvéderm Voluma® yields instant, natural looking results for up two years and contains 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize patient discomfort during treatment.
Juvéderm Volbella is an injectable filler composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) that provides a natural, desirable enhancement in the lip contour, boosting volume, smoothing vertical creases (smoker’s lines), and achieving symmetry. This injectable is recommended for a smoother, softer consistency that mimics the natural feel of your lips for a longer time. Studies have shown that 98% of Juvéderm Volbella patients reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved, with results lasting up to 12 months.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that’s part of the Juvéderm family of products. It specifically addresses moderate to severe nasolabial facial wrinkles and skin folds, also referred to as laugh lines. This injectable treatment reduces the harshness of parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume around the nose and mouth to create subtle and long-lasting results.
The Restylane family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These fillers appear as a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is uniquely formulated to mimic your body’s own naturally occurring stores of hyaluronic acid (a youth-supporting component of the skin). These fillers work best for laugh lines, otherwise known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are injections made to your face to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while restoring your face’s natural volume and fullness.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed for subtle and natural looking lip augmentation and the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. This product comes in the form of a gel that is finer and smoother than the other Restylane products. This gel allows for a more precise, ‘softer’ result, perfect for enhancing and restoring the look of lips.
Restylane Silk is administered with an ultrafine needle, which is created specifically for injection accuracy and precision. All our Restylane products also incorporate 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to aid with minimizing discomfort.
Restylane Lyft is specifically designed for cheek augmentation and the improvement of age-related midface contour deficiencies. This treatment can also help correct moderate to severe facial folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines). Restylane Lyft can restore facial volume that is lost with age and can leave cheeks looking smoother and fuller.
Treatment Results and Recovery
Prior to the treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. The dermal filler is then carefully injected in the targeted area with a fine needle, to achieve the desired enhancement to the lips. Depending on the number of areas being treated, the process usually takes about 30 minutes. Due to how quick and simple the injectable treatments are, patients consider them a great ‘lunch break’ procedure that can be easily accommodated into their schedule.
Visible results will be seen immediately. After your first treatment, your face will have a fresher and younger looking appearance. Dermal Fillers will add volume to your face while smoothing away wrinkles.
Dermal filler treatments have zero downtime, which means you can return to work and resume your regular activities immediately afterwards! Ice is recommended to remedy any discomfort before and after treatment. Rarely, a patient may experience mild redness or swelling at the point of injection; these symptoms usually resolve themselves quickly.
