What Are Facial Fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that reduce the appearance of lines and add volume and fullness to your face. For over 100 years, physicians have been developing ways to restore volume and structure to aging skin. In the 1930s, hyaluronic acid was discovered throughout the body maintenance of skin volume and hydration, eye volume and shape, and joint lubrication and cushioning.

In 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler for the correction of wrinkles. Currently, in medicine, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are the fastest growing non-invasive aesthetic procedure in the United States, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

 

Juvéderm® has become the most popular of the hyaluronic gels with our patients. Juvéderm dermal filler, approved by the FDA in 2006, provides a soft feel and natural appearance. Juvéderm is also perfect for lip augmentation. Juvéderm offers a high level of control for the doctor, allowing for individualized, tailored facial contouring and for achieving a smooth and natural look. This differs from dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Teoxane which simply replenish volume in the skin that has thinned over time.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can dramatically improve your look and rejuvenate your facial features. We use dermal fillers to:

  • Plump up lips
  • Fill in cheeks
  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Lessen the appearance of scars
  • Remove the shadow from underneath your lids

Dermal fillers can also reconstruct deformities in your face. As an aesthetics specialist, we may use different types of dermal fillers to give you the best results.

What Are the Five Levels of Formulation?

A special advantage of Juvéderm wrinkle filler is 5 levels of product formulation which improve deep folds and lines, moderate wrinkling and the fine lines found around the lips and eyes.

The product formulations include:

  • Juvéderm Ultra: A highly cross-linked formulation for more versatility in contouring and volumizing of facial wrinkles and folds
  • Juvéderm Ultra Plus: A more highly cross-linked robust formulation for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles
  • Juvéderm Voluma: For volume in the cheek area that lasts up to 24 months.
  • Juvéderm Vollure: Stretches with the face and chases away marionette and laugh lines for up to 18 months.
  • Juvéderm Volbella: The softest of fillers for lip lines and soft lip augmentation and to remove shadows under the eyes.

Juvéderm dermal filler was developed using a proprietary, technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable smooth gel. This malleability allows easy flow into the skin, creating a smooth, natural look and feel.

What Can I Expect During Facial Filler Treatment?

Before your cosmetic dermatologist begins injecting the dermal fillers, she will map out a plan for where on your face they will go. As a physician with an eye for beauty, our renowned cosmetic dermatologist knows precisely where to place the injections to give you the look you want.

Before treatment, the dermatologist will clean your face and apply a numbing agent to reduce any discomfort. Then, with great care and precision, she injects the filler into the specified areas and massages it into place.

The entire procedure takes an hour or less. You may have some swelling after treatment, but an ice pack can immediately reduce that side effect, and you can go right back to your usual activities.

Most importantly, the results of dermal fillers are immediate.

How Long Do Results Last?

With good skincare practices, your dermal fillers can keep your skin smooth and plump for up to a year. ArmstrongMD provides guidelines on how to care for your skin after treatment, but we emphasize the need to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.
