What are Injectable dermal Fillers?
Filler injections (or simply fillers) are often utilized to replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a number of reasons, but significant weight loss and age are commonly to blame. The procedure works by injecting a liquid (the dermal filler) beneath the skin to fill sunken or hollowed areas. Injectable fillers are a great, minimally invasive option for Highland Heights, OH and Avon Lake, OH individuals wanting to smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin in order to create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be incorporated into other cosmetic services to reveal the results of a traditional facelift without going under the knife, the risk of scarring, and the required downtime that follows.
There are a variety of fillers that could help meet the requests and desires of each client. We prefer to use the well-known and cosmetically pleasing JUVÉDERM®, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM, and Revanesse® Versa™ collections of injectable dermal fillers. To find out which products are right for you, we invite you to visit Boost Wellness where we can help you learn more. Our practice carries the following formulas:
JUVÉDERM ULTRA™ XC, ULTRA PLUS™ XC, and VOLLURE™ XC are various fillers that treat medium to deep wrinkles throughout the face, like nasolabial folds/smile lines, marionette lines, tear troughs (under-eyes), and glabellar/frown lines, as well as for lip volume. The results, on average, are visible for up to 9 – 12 months for ULTRA XC and ULTRA PLUS XC and about 12 – 18 months for VOLLURE XC.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ XC and ULTRA XC are commonly used to soften vertical lines of the upper lip, redefine and contour the border of the lips, and enhance the volume of the upper or lower lip. The results typically are visible for up to nine months for ULTRA XC and for 12 months for VOLBELLA XC.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC augments the contour of the cheeks, temples, and chin to treat volume lost with age in the mid-face and lower face. The results are long-lasting, anywhere from 18 – 24 months.
