The aging process often causes many to lose fat volume in their faces. The eroding fat cells produce wrinkles and a tired, gaunt appearance. Sometimes, loss of facial volume happens prematurely and can make a person look older than he or she is. With the help of dermal filler injections, volume can be restored to the face, helping to ease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and jowls. To follow is a look into our top dermal fillers and what they can do for you.
JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC
Juvederm is specially formulated to treat fine lines and wrinkles in problem areas of the face such as crow’s feet, thinning lips, loose skin, and sunken cheeks. The formula is a clear gel that can be sculpted to restore fullness in the lips and cheeks. A benefit of Juvederm is that allergic reactions are incredibly rare. This injectable filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally occurring in the human body. Results from Juvederm, although permanent, are long lasting. Juvederm treatments often last 6-9 months, however, a quick maintenance procedure shortly after the initial injection can ensure results last even longer.
Similar to Juvederm, Restylane is also comprised of hyaluronic acid. This injectable has a unique ability to bind with water which helps it to remain in the skin for many months. Restylane is most often used to target wrinkles between the eyebrows and the nasolabial folds, which run from the edges of your nose to the corners of your smile.
Perlane is made by the same manufacturer as Restylane. Perlane is comprised of a similar formula, and is considered hypoallergenic. Perlane is best used in lip augmentation, and the contours of the cheeks and chin. This injectable filler is also long lasting, and helps create a more youthful appearance in the face.
