Dermal Fillers and Fat Transfer
Juvéderm® injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler introduced to the U.S. market by Allergan, the company that manufactures BOTOX®. Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler similar to Restylane®. However, Juvéderm® injectable gel employs a unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid compared to any other currently available hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. The smooth consistency of the gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm® results are immediate with minimal downtime. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, with results that last six months or longer. Juvéderm® can be used virtually anywhere on the face, with most success in the lips, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), and “marionette lines” (lines from the corners of the mouth downward to the jawline).
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler designed specifically to instantly boost the volume of your cheeks and skin to correct age-related volume deficiencies. The result is a subtle lift and contour with just one treatment.
Results from Juvéderm Voluma® XC are apparent immediately after treatment and patients notice an immediate significant improvement in their appearance that will continue to improve within a few weeks. Wrinkles and creases are less noticeable, and cheeks have the volume patients once had during your younger years. Juvéderm Voluma XC provides a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face that lasts up to two years. Touch-up appointments may be recommended to maintain results.
Juvéderm Volbella® is a new lip injection gel that plumps thinning lips, smooths fine lines around the mouth, and lasts an entire year. This powerful gel has a unique formula that doesn’t over plump the lips. Juvéderm Volbella® subtly refines and enhances your lips and is ideal for patients who appreciate a more conservative look that lasts. If you have always loved the look of full lips and you want a low-maintenance, non-surgical approach, Juvéderm Volbella® may be the right solution.
Juvéderm Vollure® is an FDA-approved filler designed to correct moderate to severe laugh and marionette lines for up to 18 months. As the years pass by, skin naturally loses some of its elasticity, resulting in deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm Vollure® was developed to add subtle volume to these key areas, smoothing away unwanted creases and restoring a naturally youthful appearance.
Fat Transfer essentially uses liposuction to take fat from one part of your body and inject it into another where more volume is desired or required. This is an option for minor issues that require small increases in fat volume. The benefit of fat transfer is achieving a more natural looking results.
