Dermal fillers are safe, natural products that provide a variety of improvements with just a few quick injections. At the Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we use these popular treatments to correct facial wrinkles, restore volume to the cheeks, define the lips, and more. Our dermal fillers require no pretesting for sensitivity because they don’t contain animal products. Our highly trained and experienced injection team, which includes 2 board-certified plastic surgeons, a physician assistant, and a registered nurse, provides our dermal filler patients in Ann Arbor a superior level of care and expertise that is not typically found in our area.
Dermal Filler Options
The JUVÉDERM family of fillers is made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that helps the skin retain moisture, and gives it firmness and elasticity. JUVÉDERM is offered in a variety of formulations, including JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra, and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™. These treatments are commonly used to smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, and sculpt the lips. The results are instant with little to no downtime and last up to one year. All JUVÉDERM formulations contain lidocaine for minimum discomfort during treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
VOLUMA is the first filler FDA approved to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Most people lose volume in the cheeks as they age. This flattening effect in the cheeks can be seen in the lower face as well as the overlying skin tends to droop and sag. While VOLUMA lifts and fills out the cheeks, it also reduces the amount of filler needed around the mouth. In addition, restoring cheek volume and smoothing away facial folds usually provides a more natural look than addressing the mouth area alone. The benefits of VOLUMA are instant and may last as long as 2 years depending on individual factors.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is injected directly into the cheek area. These treatments involve minimal discomfort because, like the other JUVÉDERM fillers, VOLUMA contains a small amount of numbing medicine. We offer other methods as well to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
This family of fillers includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane Lyft®, and Restylane Silk®. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically created 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.
Complete Your Facial Rejuvenation
The combination of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers is often used to achieve optimal results by addressing different concerns. BOTOX, and its newer alternative Dysport®, treat lines and wrinkles caused by the repeated contractions of facial muscles instead of replacing volume within the skin. Both types of treatment involve minimal discomfort and little to no recovery time.
