Tucson Dermal Fillers
Juvederm® and Juvederm® Voluma are dermal fillers that may be used to correct lines and shadows on the face, including nasolabial folds (“parenthesis”) and lines around the mouth (“bottle lines” or “smoker’s lines”). Juvederm® is a crystal-clear gel based on hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is present in the human body. Results of Juvederm® injections diminish slowly over time as your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid. Juvederm® Voluma is the newest product in the Juvederm® family, and can last up to two years when administered around the cheek/cheekbone area.
Restylane® is quickly becoming a popular choice as an injectable filler for treating facial wrinkles, as well as for plumping up lips. Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel based on hyaluronic acid, a natural substance present in the human body. The water-soluble gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle, filling in wrinkles and depressions in the skin. The result is instantaneous and produces a lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe. Restylane® is also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. Experience shows that Restylane® is effective for up to 6 months when injected in the lips. Because the effects of Restylane® are not permanent, you have the option to discontinue use if your tastes or fashion trends change. Restylane Lyft® is a more highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid product than Restylane®. Cross-linking is the process that allows these products the ability to persist in the tissue and provide longer term benefits.
Restylane® and Restylane Lyft® are very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the nasolabial folds (“parentheses”), around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), and between the eyebrows, with results lasting from 2 to 9 months.
