What are dermal fillers?
Designed for the correction of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose and mouth, dermal fillers can be an ideal skin rejuvenation solution for men and women who either do not want or do not qualify for surgery. These injectable treatments are typically formulated with hyaluronic acid and other substances that are found naturally in the body and add immediate volume in areas where collagen has been lost as a result of the aging process.
At Remedies Skin and Laser, we offer multiple dermal fillers and will personalize a treatment plan for you based on your skin care needs and aesthetic goals.
A trusted name in skin rejuvenation, Juvederm® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid of any fillers on the market, making this product a quality choice for adding shape to volume-deficient areas of the face. Indicated for facial wrinkles, especially those around the nose and mouth, Juvederm® has been proven to create smoother, tighter skin that can last for up to one year with optimal treatment.
Also developed by Juvederm®, Voluma® is the first dermal filler approved by the FDA to address the sunken or hollow appearance in the cheeks that can occur with age. Voluma® is injected into the midface with a fine needle and can help restore a more youthful shape to the apples of your cheeks for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Formulated to target etched-in lines above and around the lips that can be more difficult to treat, Belotero® completely integrates into the skin tissue, acting as your own natural hyaluronic acid and blending into your natural facial structure in a smooth, flexible gel that can last for six months or more in many patients.
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation that not only adds immediate volume underneath the skin for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines, it can also be injected into the lips for subtle enhancement in patients who are over 21. This treatment option can be discussed with our medical team during your consultation.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatment, slight bruising, redness, swelling and itching are common at injection sites but should subside within a day or so. More serious complications are rare and will be discussed along with any other relevant safety information during your consultation.
