Our office dedicated to offering top-quality filler injections, including Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, and RHA fillers to cater to the aesthetic needs of our patients. These minimally invasive, non-surgical injectable dermal fillers are designed to address a wide range of concerns, such as smoothing facial lines and wrinkles, correcting depressions, enhancing lip volume, and rejuvenating the face.
Our fillers are all based on a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid has a remarkable ability to attract and bond with water molecules, creating natural volume in the skin. As we age, our natural supply of hyaluronic acid diminishes, but dermal fillers offer a way to replenish these levels in our skin tissues.
Juvederm is a versatile dermal filler used to address various moderate and severe wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, parentheses lines, and perioral lip lines. Results from Juvederm typically last between six months to a year, after which patients may choose to have maintenance treatments. The inclusion of lidocaine in Juvederm injections ensures patient comfort during the procedure.
Juvederm utilizes Hylacross technology to create a smooth, gel-based formulation, offering a safe and effective solution for long-term facial rejuvenation.
Voluma, part of the Juvederm product line, is specifically designed to restore volume to the cheeks. This long-lasting dermal filler can provide results for up to two years, making it an excellent choice for rejuvenating gaunt and sagging cheeks caused by natural aging, weight loss, or illness. Voluma helps counteract the loss of facial volume and rejuvenates the face, bringing back a youthful and healthy appearance.
Restylane, another hyaluronic acid filler, is effective in addressing moderate and deep facial lines, including parentheses lines, marionette lines, lipstick lines (perioral lip lines), and nasolabial folds. Restylane is a great option for lip augmentation, providing a fuller and more attractive look. Results from Restylane typically last up to 18 months.
Restylane products are formulated to mimic the body’s own hyaluronic acid, and they do not contain animal proteins that could pose a risk of disease transmission. The benefits of Restylane are visible immediately after treatment.
It’s worth noting that the longevity of Restylane varies among patients, with mobile areas like the lips potentially experiencing faster absorption.
Am I a Good Candidate for Injections?
Dermal filler treatments are suitable for most individuals with facial wrinkles or depressions caused by volume loss who seek a non-surgical rejuvenation option. It’s important to note that active skin infections in or near the treatment areas may disqualify you as a candidate. If you have any allergies, discussing them with Dr. Conderman during your initial consultation is essential.
The Treatment Process
The treatment process begins with the careful marking of the target areas. Local anesthesia may be applied to ensure patient comfort, with many fillers already containing lidocaine for numbing. The injector then skillfully delivers injections to the marked regions, typically completing the process in just 30 minutes. These “lunchtime procedures” offer convenience and minimal disruption to your daily routine.
After a filler injection session, you can immediately resume your regular activities without requiring downtime. It’s advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure and use proper sunscreen. Additionally, abstaining from alcohol and strenuous activities, such as heavy exercise, for a short period is recommended.
How Much Do Filler Injections Cost?
The cost of filler injections varies depending on factors like the volume of product used. It’s important to note that health insurance providers do not cover injectable treatments, as they are considered cosmetic procedures. To obtain specific pricing information, we recommend discussing this with Dr. Conderman during your consultation.
