WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal fillers are injectable products used to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases that occur with normal aging. They do so by adding volume and hydration to areas that are lacking. Common sites of treatment are the “smile lines” or nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth. They are also used to give shape and fullness to the lips.

WHAT IS JUVEDERM?

One of the most popular dermal fillers available today is Juvederm. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the skin but diminishes with aging. The hyaluronic acid is manufactured into a gel, which can be easily injected into the desired area. The gel is composed of hyaluronic acid crystals which absorb water, adding volume and hydration to the treatment site. This fills out the skin folds or plumps up the lips.

The Juvederm line consists of a wide range of products designed to meet a variety of aesthetic needs. They vary based on thickness, strength and longevity, and can be selected based on your personal needs:

  • Juvederm Ultra—the original for folds and lips.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus—thicker, for more dramatic change
  • Volbella—new to plump lips
  • Voluma— adds volume to cheek and face

The experts at ACQUA Medspa will help you determine which filler is best for YOU!

HOW IS THE JUVEDERM DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT PERFORMED?

Treatments with dermal fillers are performed by ACQUA’s aesthetic injector specialists in our luxurious treatment rooms. These simple, minimally-invasive treatments take just a few minutes to complete. First, we do a thorough evaluation to determine the your ideal treatment plan. Next we will apply a numbing cream to assure your comfort. Using a tiny needle, the filler is injected to the treatment site.

WHEN WILL YOU SEE RESULTS AND HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

The improvement is visible immediately following dermal filler treatment. However, initially you will experience minor swelling so it usually takes a few days to see your actual result. We advise avoiding exercise and alcohol for the first 24 hours to prevent additional swelling. Depending on the product and your metabolism the results usually last 1 to 2 years.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS?

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm are extremely safe. While there may be some minor swelling and redness, this usually resolves in hours to a few days. On rare occasion these symptoms may last longer. There have been reports of injections into blood vessels that could result in long-term damage, though we fortunately have not experienced this in our practice.

WHAT IS THE COST OF JUVEDERM DERMAL FILLER TREATMENTS?

The cost of dermal fillers varies depending on the particular product used and the number of syringes required. The Juvederm family of products usually range from $500 to $650 per syringe. Deeper, longer lasting products such as Voluma are more expensive but last twice as long. Most patients require 1 to 2 syringes.
