Fillers like JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel and VOLUMA®, VOLLURE™, and VOLBELLA™ are the latest dermal fillers that can be used to fill in wrinkles and skin folds. We like to use them to plump up lips and to fill the nasolabial folds that commonly extend from the nose to the mouth. VOLUMA® is used to plump up the cheeks for a more youthful look, VOLBELLA ™ provides a more subtle fullness especially for the lips and lip lines around the mouth, and VOLLURE™ smooths contours and fills in wrinkles and skin folds much like JUVEDERM™ with specific applications that will be determined by your physician injector.
The JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel family of products is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. With JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there's minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into our office for treatment and step right back into your life. The results of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel can last up to one year and sometimes longer.
Wrinkle fillers are different from BOTOX® Cosmetic. Fillers plump up or fill the areas where it is injected, commonly the lips and the nasolabial folds. BOTOX ® Cosmetic, on the other hand, blocks nerve transmission and relaxes facial muscles that pull the skin into expression lines, usually in the forehead and eye area. Many patients enjoy the benefits of using both tools to correct facial lines.
