Restylane® and JuveDerm® are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin. The most commonly "filled" areas include the nasolabial folds, lips, frown line, and hollows of the eyes. Acne scars may also do well with this type of filler. They are both composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural clear jelly like substance that already exists in the human body. Results can be expected to last from 6-12 months. There is mild bruising and swelling at the injection sites but makeup may be applied 4 hours after treatment. For lip volumizing, we perform a nerve block (dental block) so you do not feel any injections into the lips.
Juvederm Voluma XC
For those seeking special attention to the cheek area, we offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, the first and only injectable gel that is FDA-approved for deep injection into the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. Uniquely formulated to add volume to all three areas of the cheek, it instantly gives a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is an ideal complement to JUVÉDERM® XC, which smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Side effects are moderate and include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is for patients over the age of 21.
Sculptra is an excellent agent to help fill in the hollows of the cheeks and temples as well as softening the nasolabial folds. Results typically last 2-3 years and treatment is a 2-3 staged process. We inject Sculptra then reinject 6 weeks later to help stimulate your own collagen which is the actual filler in this case.
