At our office, we offer the best filler injections for Walnut Creek patients, including Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, and Restylane. These minimally invasive non-surgical injectable dermal fillers are able to smooth away facial age lines and wrinkles, fill in depressions, enhance the lips, and rejuvenate the face.
Our fillers are all composed of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts and bonds with water molecules in order to create natural youthful volume in the skin. Over time, our supply of hyaluronic acid dwindles, but with dermal fillers, we can supplement the levels in our skin tissues.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that has a variety of uses. It can fill in a number of moderate and harsh wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, parentheses lines, and perioral lip lines.
Additionally, Juvederm is an effective lip filler option. Precise Juvederm injections can make lips that are thin and lack definition look plump and pouty. Patients see results from Juvederm for around six months to a full year. After this time, patients can return for maintenance treatments.
Hylacross technology is used in Juvederm fillers, which creates a smooth gel-based formulation. Juvederm injectables also contain lidocaine, which numbs the treatment area immediately, making the procedure more comfortable for patients.
Juvederm is widely recognized as a safe and effective cosmetic option for long-term facial rejuvenation. It replenishes the skin’s volume and fullness, decreasing visible signs of aging.
Voluma is an injection in the Juvederm product line. Juvederm created it specifically to restore volume to the cheeks. It is an excellent option for revitalizing gaunt sagging cheeks. Voluma is a long-lasting dermal filler and shows results for up to two years.
Voluma is injected after tissue has been lost due to normal aging, weight loss, or illness. As time passes, the fatty tissue and collagen in the face naturally deteriorate. Drooping skin and sunken cheeks may occur from the loss of facial volume. It’s likely that your face will begin to appear tired and unhealthy. With Voluma, a youthful and healthy appearance can be restored.
This hyaluronic acid filler addresses many moderate and deep age lines on the face, including parentheses lines, marionette lines, lipstick lines (also called smoker’s lines or perioral lip lines), and the nasolabial folds. It can fill in tear troughs under the eyes and depressions in the backs of the hands.
Restylane can also create impressive lip augmentation. Injections of this filler can enhance thin lips for a fuller and more attractive look. Patients can see Restylane’s results for up to 18 months.
Restylane fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a crystal-clear gel that is designed to mimic your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Restylane products do not contain animal protein, which would potentially cause disease transmission. The benefits are visible right after the treatment.
Restylane fillers are progressively absorbed by the body once they are injected. The rate of absorption differs based on the patient. Injected locations that experience a lot of movement, such as the lips and hands, are likely to lose their Rеstуlаnе faster than non-mobile regions.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people are ideal candidates for injectable dermal filler treatments. Good candidates have facial wrinkles or depressions as a result of volume loss and are interested in a non-surgical rejuvenation option.
If you have an active skin infection on or near the target areas, you may not be an ideal candidate for injectables. If you have any allergies, make sure to discuss them with Dr. Conderman during your initial consultation.
The Treatment Process
First, the injector will carefully mark the treatment areas. These marks serve as a guide. After this, the injector may apply topical or local anesthesia for numbing. In many cases, the local anesthetic lidocaine is already mixed into the product.
The injector then precisely delivers injections of the filler product to the marked regions. Overall, the process typically takes only 30 minutes or less and is very convenient. Because of this, filler injection treatments are often called “lunch time procedures.”
After your injection treatment session, you will be able to immediately return to your daily schedule without needing any downtime or recovery time. You will need to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear proper sunscreen. You must avoid alcohol and strenuous activities like heavy exercise for a time.
How Much Do Filler Injections Cost?
All filler injections cost different amounts, and the price of your injectable treatment will vary depending on factors like the amount of the product used. Health insurance providers do not cover injectables because they are cosmetic treatments.
