When it comes to dermal fillers, there are many products to choose from, depending on the area being treated and your treatment goals. Not all dermal fillers are appropriate for certain areas so understanding these options and having frank discussions with your doctor are key components of finding the treatment that gives you the results you’re seeking.
What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
People receiving dermal fillers are typically seeking to plump and beautify areas that lose volume and elasticity with age. These areas can appear sunken in and dull. This would include:
- Nasiolabial folds
- Lines on the chin and near the mouth
- Frown lines
Dermal fillers work well for the aging changes of the lower third of the face, the temples and cheekbone, to plump and shape the face. Fillers are often combined with Botox which is used for wrinkles due to muscle movement such as the forehead and crow’s feet.
Dermal Filler Options
The most popular options on the market today are hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero. All three of these products are sterile gels made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural sugar that already exists in the dermis of the skin where it can be added to provide plumping and lifting of sagging, depressed areas.
At Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Institute, we are pleased to offer many different FDA approved fillers to tailor treatment specifically for your needs. These fillers have an excellent track record of success and can help shape your skin into a beautiful, more youthful you!
With Juvederm, you have several options, including the versatile Juvederm Ultra and Utra Plus, in addition to more specialized products like Voluma, Volbella XC, and Vollure XC. Each product is crafted specifically for a particular problem area.
With Voluma, you can plump, smooth, and contour the cheeks. Voluma adds volume to reverse age-related volume loss.
Volbella XC offers subtle volume to the lips and can even soften the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Juvederm Vollure XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and the nasiolabial folds, or parentheses lines.
Everyone’s skin loses volume with age. It is a natural part of the body’s processes. With dermal fillers, you can reverse the affects of time and bring back the facial volume of your youth. Fillers are a non-invasive treatment that provide immediate improvements that last approximately one year. The amount of improvement is dependent on the amount of filler that is injected. Additional filler can be added at any time so we recommend that you start conservatively and add additional filler to achieve your best results.
