Dermal filler injections are a quick and noninvasive way to restore age-related volume loss in the face. Mia Aesthetics offers Juvéderm for patients looking to get started on dermal fillers injections for a subtle lip or face augmentation. Juvéderm introduces delicate volume into the face and is most often used to fill in wrinkles, folds and fine lines caused by volume loss rather than repetitive facial movements.
To apply Juvéderm, the surgeon will use a fine needle to carefully inject the chosen filler into the face, taking care to contour the treated areas to the patient’s liking. Once this process is complete, the procedure is over. Most patients do not require anesthesia, though a topical numbing agent may be used if desired to make the procedure more comfortable. No bandages or sutures are needed, and patients can go home or even back to work afterward. Patients can usually resume normal activities right away, and there should be no activity restrictions unless specified by the plastic surgeon. Some doctors may recommend avoiding extreme heat or not engaging in vigorous exercise for a 24-hour period.
Minor side effects may include swelling, bruising, and redness at the site of the injection, particularly for treatments like lip augmentation. These side effects should subside within several days and pose no risk to patients.
Fillers are made of different materials, but the most common is hyaluronic acid, a sugar found naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and lends volume to areas experiencing volume loss, resulting in natural rejuvenation.
What Areas of The Face Are Fillers Used to Treat?
Dermal fillers can be used in many areas of the face to reduce the appearance of aging and give patients a rejuvenated look. Below is a list of popular face filler treatment areas:
Lips, Midface (Cheeks), Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines, Oral Commissures
Lip fillers are one of the most popular types of noninvasive treatments available right now. Patients range from their teens to their late sixties or more, proving the versatility and aesthetic boost lip fillers can provide for patients of all backgrounds. Lip fillers are very customizable and can create a look that is as plump or subtle as the patient desires.
Cheek and Cheekbone fillers
Cheek and cheekbone fillers can have multiple aesthetic benefits. They are designed to add volume, contour the face and rejuvenate a person’s look. They can also help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and re-introduce facial structure and volume. Depending on your aesthetic goals, cheek and cheekbone fillers can be customized to create the look you want, whether that’s a subtle enhancement or dramatic face change.
Smile Line fillers
Smile line fillers are one of the most popular placement areas for dermal fillers. They go in the nasolabial crease, or the area around your mouth that dents in when you smile. Over time, this can result in wrinkles that appear when your face is relaxed. By inserting filler into these lines, you can achieve a youthful, more relaxed look.
The effects of fillers generally last from six months to two years. How long a patient’s results last depend primarily on their unique build and the way their body breaks down the filler, and the amount of filler injected. Some older patients may need more filler to achieve the same results as a younger patient. If results are not to a patient’s satisfaction, the doctor can always apply more filler or administer a dissolving agent to remove filler. Patients can repeat the injection process at regular intervals to maintain results.
Nowadays, filler can be purchased at a fairly reasonable price due to its wide availability. However, it is very important that you choose a reputable provider who is very experienced in the treatment you would like done. This way, you can guarantee the best results and your overall safety. A
