What Are Dermal Fillers?
If you want to rejuvenate your skin without undergoing any aggressive surgical procedures, a dermal filler may be your best option. Dermal fillers are increasing in popularity because they are safer and less expensive than surgery. You can regain the youthful vitality of your skin after just one treatment, and the effects can last for months.
A dermal filler is an injectable solution that fills the soft tissue under the skin. You can choose a synthetic or natural filler, and you will need to select an absorbable or non-absorbable option as well. Each variation improves the appearance of aging, wrinkling and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are ideal for filling in creases and lines, plumping up the lips and cheeks, and enhancing facial contours.
Injections Dermal Fillers
Loss of facial volume and fullness often becomes an esthetic concern for many women as they begin to age. Fortunately, injectable fillers offer an effortless way to correct and improve wrinkles, fine lines and loss of facial definition without the need for extensive downtime or uncomfortable surgery.
JUVÉDERM is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal filler that was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006. A single injection session of this product can provide patients with between six and 12 months of correction to crow’s-feet, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. It can also be used as an under-eye filler.
Because JUVÉDERM contains lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, the injection process is generally more comfortable than its counterparts. Each injection session only takes about 20 minutes to complete. Side effects like redness, pain, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the injection site are common, but typically subside within a few hours following treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is the leading hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, providing a desirable improvement in lip contour, volume, and helping to smooth vertical creases, while achieving symmetry – all in one comfortable treatment.
VOLBELLA is the first filler from Allergan, the makers of BOTOX, that is specifically designed for the lips. The smooth gel, developed with VYCROSS™ technology, gives it a more natural, softer feel when injected, making it perfect for the delicate tissue found in the lip area. Unlike other lip fillers, results can last up to one year!
VOLUMA is the first and only FDA-approved injectable facial filler designed to instantly add volume to the cheek area. VOLUMA is the next generation of fillers. It has been in the market since 2005 in Europe and like its sister product JUVÉDERM, VOLUMA is made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar that naturally occurs in the body. VOLUMA is an excellent product to fill, lift and add volume to the cheeks, jowls and temples. It gives you a subtle and natural-looking lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to two years!
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE is the most recent dermal filler produced using VYCROSS technology. VOLLURE is a facial filler designed to treat everything from smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, to deep folds and contouring and to create a refreshed and youthful look. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE helps to gently restore natural-looking highlights to your face. Lifting the face’s center of gravity creates beautiful symmetry that is natural and well-balanced and can allow patients to postpone surgery.
