Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have long been the go-to solution for enhancing lips, reducing wrinkles and adding volume to the face for a more youthful, radiant look. At Valley Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, we are pleased to offer our clients dermal fillers from trusted brands like Allergan (Juvederm).

Juvederm is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers used to address various aesthetic concerns. These FDA-approved injectables are designed to add volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. The Juvederm product line includes different formulations tailored for specific treatment areas like lips, cheeks and nasolabial folds.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances designed to add volume, smooth lines and restore contours to the face. They are commonly used for facial rejuvenation and can address areas like nasolabial folds, cheeks, lips and under-eye hollows.

They work by adding volume to the treated areas, typically with ingredients like hyaluronic acid. This helps plump up the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

Juvederm Fillers

Juvederm Fillers

Juvederm, produced by Allergan, is a renowned brand offering a variety of safe and effective dermal fillers designed to address different concerns and areas of the face like fine lines, wrinkles and loss of facial volume.

The primary ingredient in Juvederm fillers is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin that contributes to its hydration and suppleness. By replenishing hyaluronic acid, Juvederm fillers can enhance facial contours, smooth wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance.

The application of Juvederm is known for its safety and effectiveness, yielding natural-looking results.The procedure typically involves a minimally invasive injection, and the results can last for several months, depending on the specific product used.

Where Can Fillers Be Injected and How Do They Work?

Juvederm fillers can be used in various facial areas to address specific concerns and enhance overall facial aesthetics:

Smile Lines (Nasolabial Folds)

These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Fillers can be injected into the nasolabial folds to soften and smooth the appearance of these lines, restoring a more youthful contour to the mid-face.

Marionette Lines

These lines extend downward from the corners of the mouth, giving a marionette-like appearance. By injecting fillers into these lines, Juvederm helps lift and rejuvenate the lower face, minimizing the sagging or downturned appearance.

Lack of Volume in the Cheeks

Volume loss in the cheeks can contribute to a sunken or aged look. Fillers can be strategically placed in the cheeks to restore volume and create a more lifted and youthful appearance to the midface.

Pre-Jowl Area

This area can lose volume and contribute to the formation of jowls along the jawline. Filler injections in the pre-jowl area can help provide support and structure, reducing the appearance of jowls and improving the jawline contour.

Lip Enhancement/Hydration

Thin lips or loss of lip volume can be a cosmetic concern. Certain dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip volume, define the lip borders, and address issues like asymmetry. Additionally, they can improve hydration, contributing to plump, well-hydrated lips.

Do Results From Fillers Look Natural?

Valley Dermatology is committed to achieving natural-looking results with dermal fillers. Our approach involves tailoring treatment plans to each client’s unique features and cosmetic objectives. We embrace a conservative strategy to prevent overfilling, focusing on subtle enhancements that enhance natural beauty.

By combining a deep understanding of facial anatomy with precise filler placement, we aim for balanced and symmetrical outcomes, providing a refreshed appearance without the risk of an artificial or exaggerated look.

How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?

How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?

Dermal fillers are typically administered using tiny needles, contributing to a relatively comfortable and minimally invasive experience for patients. The needles used during the procedure are fine-gauge and carefully selected to ensure precision in injecting the filler into targeted areas of the face. The small size of these needles helps to minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of bruising or swelling at the injection sites.

Before the procedure, we apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment areas to further enhance client comfort. This numbing agent helps alleviate any potential sensation during the injection process. The use of tiny needles and numbing agents contributes to a more tolerable experience, making dermal filler treatments accessible to individuals with varying pain thresholds.

Dermal fillers by Juvederm are formulated with lidocaine or other local anesthetics to minimize discomfort during the injection process. Clients commonly report feeling a mild pinch or pressure and any momentary discomfort is usually brief.
