Dermal Fillers For Cheeks, Lips, and Under Eye Areas
Injectable dermal fillers have grown in popularity as a minimally invasive alternative to facial cosmetic surgery. Dermal fillers are used to fill in lines and soften deep facial creases and wrinkles. Add volume, create angles, and reverse the signs of aging with injectable cosmetic procedures. Facial contouring utilizing these dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse or Restylane can add fullness to the cheeks, the lips and under the eyes, restoring a smooth, more youthful looking appearance.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE DERMAL FILLER OPTIONS: RESTYLANE® SILK / VOLBELLA® / VOLLURE®/ JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC
Full lips and a beautiful mouth rely on moisture and nutrient levels in our skin cells that can diminish over time. Lip fillers increase the fullness and definition of lips.
We use a number of specialized lip filler products and our expert Aesthetic Nurse RNs will find the right product for your needs and desired outcome. The ability to control the amount the volume you want in your lips make dermal fillers a great alternative to surgical procedures.
Restylane hhas been delivering reliable outcomes and a proven safety record for more than 20 years, Restylane provides the natural elegance to make you look good and feel good. Restylane is a safe and natural dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Made of a substance called hyaluronic acid (which occurs naturally in our skin), Restylane’s job is to replace the natural hyaluronic acid that diminishes with age – or was insufficient to begin with. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its own weight in water, therefore acting as a crucial support molecule that helps keep our skin looking young. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to recreate hyaluronic acid in a lab and make it available via a safe injection – which is great news for those of us who are ready for a boost! The Restylane broad portfolio of dermal fillers, Skinboosters and Skincare products, is designed to restore, refresh and enhance the youthful appearance of your skin.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. Naturally small or aging lips can benefit from a variety of injectable cosmetic fillers to enhance contours and create a more youthful appearance; however, advancements in dermal filler technology have created a new product in the JUVÉDERM® family that is developed especially for these applications: JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an FDA-approved smooth gel, hyaluronic-acid dermal filler designed to add volume to thin lips and treat signs of aging along the lips and around the mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has been proven to achieve excellent results. To help prevent discomfort during the injection process, this product is formulated with lidocaine—a local anesthetic.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. Ultra Plus XC is used to add volume to facial tissues and restore a smoother appearance to the face. It is designed to treat areas of the face with moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The “XC” indicates that the filler contains lidocaine for more comfortable injections.
History of Cheek Fillers and Contouring
In 1893 the first cheek implant was recorded! This was done by removing fat from an arm and placing it directly into the cheek, this practice is still done today in many places.. In the 1940’s and 50’s silicone was used but as it was causing many side effects it was banned until 1992 when a new safer form of silicone was created!
You’ve probably heard horror stories about collagen in cheek fillers and lip fillers causing that swollen and fake look of the 80’s and 90’s. Collagen fillers were actually made of animal products such as bovine and were available as implants and injections. In the 2000’s the new and safer Hyaluronic Acid cheek fillers were approved! Now today we have a natural and safe and proven option of injectable cheek fillers.
Why Get Dermal Fillers For Cheek and Lip Contouring?
Youthful skin is marked by the presence of a range of beneficial proteins, sugars, and other elements. These are maintained and replenished via a constant cycle of breakdown and renewal throughout a person’s younger years.
As we age, our face loses fat and becomes hollow, which leads to sagging skin and an overall less youthful appearance. The complex sugar known as hyaluronic acid and the protein known as collagen leave faster than they are replenished in the skin. This results in volume loss that leads to sagging, flattening, and the formation of wrinkles. This may be particularly noticeable in those with an active lifestyle and lean body mass.
The aging process is natural and unavoidable, although it may affect different individuals at a difference pace. Your genetics and a number of environmental factors can slow down or hasten the destruction of collagen.
How Long Do Injectable Dermal Fillers Results Last?
Since every patient has different body chemistry, each patients will experience different results. With optimal treatment, results from JUVÉDERM® XC can last up to 12 months.
