Juvederm & Dermal Fillers
Want a makeover without surgery? Today’s dermal fillers have very little downtime, and can give your facial appearance the boost you want! Injectable fillers are designed to replace lost volume, plump lips and fill deep wrinkles. Patients enjoy the nearly instantaneous results. Kevin uses only FDA-approved fillers, including Restylane, Juvéderm, Sculptra, Perlane, Belotero, Radiesse, and the newly FDA-approved cheek filler Juvéderm Voluma.
What are the different kinds of dermal fillers?
Juvéderm and Restylane
These are hyaluronic acid (HA) gel products that last for up to 6–12 months. They are often used for correcting the nasolabial folds (smile lines), and for lip plumping. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar that you have in your body. HA has many roles but the primary role is to pull water into your skin giving you plumpness/fullness. These fillers can be dissolved if necessary.
Juvéderm Voluma is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile in patients over the age of 21. It typically lasts 1.5 to 2 years. This filler can be dissolved if necessary.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus
This HA filler is designed for a deeper injection than Juvederm Ultra. It works well for severe facial wrinkles and folds. It typically lasts 6-12 months. This filler can be dissolved if necessary.
Belotero is an HA filler. It can be used like Juvederm and Restylane, but is also very good around the eye area, in the “tear trough.” It typically lasts 3-4 months or longer. It is unique in that it can be placed very superficially without showing through the skin. This filler can be dissolved if necessary.
Perlane is an HA filler designed for deeper injection than Restylane. It works well for severe facial wrinkles and folds. It typically lasts 6-12 months. This filler can be dissolved if necessary.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (bone material). It has a thicker consistency and is best for deeper tissue placement. It typically lasts 6-12 months. This filler cannot be dissolved if necessary.
More of a volume-stimulating agent than a filler, Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a liquid form of surgical suture material. It gradually stimulates your body to make new collagen in the treated areas. It is excellent for re-volumizing sunken areas of the face – especially the cheeks, the eyebrow and temple areas. It typically lasts 1-3 years.
