Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm are FDA-approved cosmetic procedures used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
The filler substance is comprised mostly of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that occurs naturally in the body and is widely distributed throughout your connective tissue. As we age, the amount of HA in our facial tissues decrease, causing loss in tissue support, resulting in wrinkles. The filler injection literally fills the facial wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth, by adding volume to the skin and smoothing it out. It thereby restores a more youthful appearance. Fillers such as Juvéderm can also be used as lip fillers, adding more shape and life to your smile.
As Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in our bodies, our bodies will naturally degrade these fillers over time. You can expect these results can to last anywhere from three to six months.
Fillers are a prescribed cosmetic therapy and are not for everyone. Ask us for more information about our facial cosmetic services and how we can incorporate them into your office visits. We will work together to establish the best treatment plan for you.Back
