 Juvederm and Restylane are two common brands of fillers.

 

Dermal fillers are used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. 

 

These injectable treatments are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body to fill in the spaces between collagen and elastin in the skin. The purpose of HA is to add volume and smooth the skin, while keeping the skin hydrated by attracting water molecules. Over time, the body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result of the aging process, folds and wrinkles appear as the skin volume is reduced. Dermal fillers restore hyaluronic acid within the skin, improving the skin's structure to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

 

The most popular treatment areas include:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead creases
- Lines from the nose to the outer edges of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Lines from the corner of the mouth downwards
- Smile lines
- Adding volume to the lips (lip augmentation)
 
Procedure Details

The treatment takes about 30 minutes. Although the injections cause minimal discomfort, local or topical anesthetic can be used, if desired. The  solution can also be formulated with the local anesthetic Lidocaine to reduce your discomfort. Your clinician will determine the amount of filler to be injected into the treated area.  The solution is injected with a fine needle under the skin to precisely target selected wrinkles and lines.

The initial results of are an increase in the volume of tissues under the skin. Hyaluronic gel attracts water, and the gel itself also results in an increase in volume. The appearance of the treated area continues to improve over a period of several weeks. Some wrinkles reappear as the gel is absorbed into the body, although many patients find the results to be long-lasting or even permanent.

 

Dermal filler injections are a “lunchtime procedure” requiring no downtime. Clients can continue their daily activities immediately. Makeup can be worn to camouflage any redness or bruising in the treated skin.
