Dermal Fillers can be used for the following:
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are injectable gels designed to fill lines, reduce wrinkles and correct age-related volume loss in the midface. Here we primarily use Juvederm Ultra Plus XC for fine wrinkles around the mouth and volume loss in the lower segment of the face and Juvederm Voluma XC for midface volume loss.
Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can be used on all skin types except those who may have an allergy to the ingredients in Juvederm. People who are seeking to have more prominent cheek bones, youthful face, reduce the appearance of crepe paper lips, lessen the appearance of the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, fine and deep wrinkles around the lips and mouth.
What to Expect?
Candidates usually require 1-4 syringes of the filler depending on the amount of volume loss and treatment location. The dermal filler is injected subcutaneously or supraperiosteally and gently molded to shape and contour the surrounding tissue. The length of the procedure last approximately 1 hour. There is minimal discomfort. Usually no topical anesthetic is required. Results are achieved and seen immediately. Juvederm Voluma lasts for 2 years and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC last for 1 year. There may be light bruising at the sites of injections that resolves in 2-7 days. There is no downtime for this procedure, most people return to work the next day.
