Dermal fillers are very common injectables used to create a fuller/smoother appearance in the face. Common areas treated include nasolabial folds, cheeks, lips and increasing the volume on the back of the hands. For best results, Botox or Dysport is often paired with fillers. We use Juvederm, Restylane and Versa filler brands.
Juvederm is a filler that relies on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen to plump the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies. Patients are not required to take an allergy test before treatment because Juvederm is produced by biosynthesis in a lab.
Benefits: Effects of Juvederm fillers are immediate and long-lasting. For a more dramatic result, some patient wish to pair fillers with Botox. The treatment involves less discomfort than other fillers and results of a more youthful appearance last 6 to 9 months, some patients seeing results last up to a year. Since Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, it poses very minimal risk of allergic reaction or other negative side effects.
We also carry three newer Juvederm fillers: Vobella, Vollure, Voluma. The difference between ‘regular’ Juvederm and the newer ‘v-name’ fillers is how the molecules of HA are arranged to achieve a particular strength, thickness and spreadability.
Vobella: Contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel, perfect for filling lip lines and smoothing the delicate area under the eyes.
Vollure: combines the middle ground for durability and readability to treat nasolabial folds still allowing natural facial expressions and movement.
Voluma: the thickest strongest gel, best for deep injection in the cheek area for a nice lift and volume boost.
Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that provides natural-looking results by smoothing away wrinkle and folds on the face and lip enhancements. Restylane products are designed to act like your body’s own naturally occurring hylauronic acid.
We carry the product line Restylane Silk, Lyft, Dyfine and Refyne.
Restylane Silk: used for lip enhancements and lines around the mouth. Patients see results last for about 6 months.
Restylane Lyft: used for creating definition in cheeks and mid-face area, provide a subtle lower facelift, restore fullness to hollow cheeks caused by aging or weight loss and fill moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Patients show improvement within 2 months of treatment and results can last over a year or longer.
Resylane Refyne and Defyne: Refyne filler is very flexible and used in shallower folds and wrinkles. Defyne has a little less flexible providing a firmer soft support in areas with deeper folds and wrinkles. These treatments work well in areas where you have lines from movement such as around the mouth and eyes. Both treatments last up to 12 months.
Revanesse Versa is a multipurpose dermal filler leveraging the state of the art production methods, optimal ingredients and rigorous quality testing to provide remarkable results.
Benefits: Revanesse uses unique technology to create a filler that can be injected easier, feels more natural, easier to shape and won’t breakdown as quickly as other dermal fillers. Versa is ideal for patients who have multiple areas of the face that are being treated and desire a natural-looking, long-lasting result. Length of times for wrinkle correction varies, most patients maintain results up to 9 months.
