Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that increase facial volume in specific areas. The most common areas for dermal filler treatment are the nasolabial folds (wrinkles around your nose and mouth), lips, cheeks, and acne scars. Experienced dermatologists sometimes use dermal fillers in the hands, the below-eye hollows, and other specific areas.
Dermal fillers are made from a variety of substances. The Juvéderm® family of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring bodily substance. The other type of filler available at Associated Skin Care Specialists, Bellafill®, is made from bovine collagen and polymethyl methacrylate microspheres.
Which dermal filler is best for wrinkles?
Juvéderm has a couple of formulas for wrinkle treatment: Juvéderm XC® and Juvéderm Vollure™. They last up to 12 months and 18 months, respectively. Bellafill is an excellent option for nasolabial folds, as it lasts for up to five years in that area.
Which dermal filler works best for the cheek area?
If you’ve got sagging in the middle face or a lack of volume in your cheeks, Juvéderm Voluma® is the best option available. Voluma enhances the whole midface area with natural-looking volume for as long as two years.
Which dermal filler is best for my lips?
Juvéderm Volbella® and Juvéderm XC are both good dermal fillers for lip enhancement. If you want to fill in small lines around your mouth or add subtle volume, Juvéderm Volbella is an excellent choice.
If you prefer more lip volume or a more dramatic change, Juvéderm XC may be just right for you. Both Juvéderm Volbella and Juvéderm XC last for up to one year in lips.
Which dermal filler reduces acne scars?
Only one dermal filler is FDA-approved for long-term use in acne scars: Bellafill. This dermal filler helps with distensible acne scars, the ones that lessen when you stretch the skin. Bellafill smooths out your acne scars for a year or more. Ninety percent of Bellafill patients still have good results one year after treatment.
