Facial fillers are cosmetic tools of hyaluronic acid which improve the appearance of wrinkles, augment lips, rejuvenate skin, raise scar depressions, and replace volume loss in the soft tissues of a patient’s face. They are mainly used for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. Fillers offer temporary but long-lasting results and are administered through the use of small injections. Facial fillers literally “fill in” creases and folds in the face in spots which have lost collagen and fat. Voluma, Volbella, and Juvéderm Ultra and Ultraplus are brands of facial fillers used by Dr. Patel.
Most facial filler injections will provide results that last between 12-18 months. Each specific brand will offer slightly different results and may last longer or shorter than the others. Using these treatments in combination with additional cosmetic and skin restorative treatments is frequently encouraged. Patients enjoy a noticeable difference in the appearance of the skin including the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultraplus, Voluma, and Volbella mimic chemicals found naturally in the body and are used to fill in wrinkles and lines on the face, lips and eyes. While follow up treatments are necessary to maintain the youthful appearance provided by these dermal fillers, many patients enjoy a more youthful and healthy appearance.
Most facial filler injections will provide results that last up to a year. Each specific brand including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultraplus, Voluma, and Volbella will offer slightly different results and may last longer or shorter than the others. Dr. Patel will discuss each option with her patients and suggest the filler that will best address his or her concerns. Dermal facial injections do not necessitate a long recovery time and patients should able to return to work or other activities as soon as the injection process is completed.
