Dermal Fillers Ann Arbor
Dermal fillers are safe, natural cosmetic products that can restore volume and fullness to the skin. They can improve moderate to severe facial wrinkles, especially the nasolabial folds around the mouth. Dermal fillers require no pretesting for sensitivity and can last up to twice as long as other similar treatments.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that is offered in a variety of formulations, including Ultra and Ultra Plus. Juvederm® injections are commonly used to smooth out facial wrinkles and add volume to the face. The results are instant with little downtime and last up to one year. All Juvederm® formulations contain lidocaine for minimum comfort during treatment. Learn more about Juvéderm.
Juvederm Voluma™ XC is the first and only FDA approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. It is made from a modified hyaluronic acid, which is a natural complex sugar that occurs within the body. The benefits of Voluma™ are instant and last up to 2 years.
Most people lose volume in the cheeks as they age and the overlaying skin tends to droop and sag. The effects of this flattening effect in the cheeks can be seen in the lower face as well. The benefit of Voluma™ is to lift this area that loses volume as we age.Many fillers on the market today are injected into the lower part of the face, but Voluma™ is injected directly into the cheek area. Although Voluma may not replace other fillers altogether, if you can lift and replace volume in the cheeks, you will need less filler around the mouth and your results will look more natural.
Juvederm Voluma™ XC treatments produce minimal discomfort, especially since the formulation contains a small amount of lidocaine. This helps numb the area during the procedure. There are other methods as well to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
The Restylane® family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly and visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips. Lidocaine is integrated into these products to create a more comfortable treatment. Learn more about the Restylane family of products.
The combination of Botox®, Dysport® and dermal fillers is often used to achieve optimal results. Both treatments involve minimal discomfort and little to no recovery time.
