As we age, the natural volume of our skin begins to diminish and wrinkles and folds settle in. Dermal fillers (JUVÉDERM Ultra®, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus®, JUVÉDERM Voluma®, Belotero® and Radiesse®) instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away deep lines and facial creases. The most common areas treated with dermal fillers are the cheeks, nasolabial folds, oral commissures, marionette lines, perioral lines and the lips.
There are many factors to consider when determining which filler is best for you. Some of these factors include the area of the face you’d like to treat, your age, condition of your skin, your budget and the desired effect you want to achieve. We will work with you to develop a customized plan to meet your needs and goals.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS:
JUVÉDERM® is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and is used to deliver nutrients and helps to hydrate the skin. The purpose of JUVÉDERM® is to help improve the natural function of hyaluronic acid in the skin, restore volume loss and smooth wrinkles.
There are three types of JUVÉDERM® products – Ultra®, Ultra Plus® and Voluma®. The formulations vary so each of the fillers has a different thickness, viscosity, ability to lift and duration. Ultra® is the softest, often used for mild to moderate wrinkles and lips enhancement. Ultra Plus® has a more enhanced filling ability than Ultra®. It is more stable and thicker and often used to treat deeper wrinkles, naso-labial folds, areas of volume loss and significant lip enhancement. Voluma® gives the most lift as it is specifically designed for volumization. Voluma® has the longest duration of the three fillers, lasting up to two years. Ultra® and Ultra Plus® can last up to one year.

Belotero® is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler. Belotero® quickly integrates with the skin, instantly smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. Since Belotero® has not been shown to cause a tindel (bluish hue) with more superficial injections like other hyaluronic acid fillers have; it works very well for etching out more of those superficial lines.
Radiesse® is a FDA approved volumizing filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres wrapped in a water based carrier. Radiesse® is unique in that it both instantly restores volume and stimulates the production of collagen for results that may last up to a year or more in many patients.
Dermal filler treatment is very quick, typically done in a 30 to 45 minute appointment, has minimal downtime, and the results can be seen immediately. Depending on the type of filler injected, the results can last six months to two years.
