Anti-Aging Rx: Dermal Fillers

Patients are seeking a longer lasting product that fills in lines, such as the lines around the mouth, as part of their overall anti-aging skin care regimen. Dermal fillers such as Juvèderm injectable gel are designed to reduce the appearance of facial folds by using hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally hydrating substance, to restore the skin’s volume and smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. A long-lasting, reversible filler such as Juvèderm can provide a natural look which can be modified or adjusted according to each individual’s face over time. New clinical studies have shown that the effects of this product may last up to one year with a single treatment.

You can experience the benefits of Juvèderm injectable gel in a quick, in-office treatment by a properly trained physician who has expertise in facial aesthetic procedures. Typically, a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area such as the nasolabial folds (parentheses) around the mouth. For patients requesting upper lip treatments, a small amount of anesthetic is injected to maximize comfort.

The most commonly reported side effects are temporary injection-site redness, swelling, mild tenderness, firmness, and mild bruising. Patients who are taking any medications such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (ibuprofen, etc.) or other potential blood thinners such as Vitamin E, fish oil, flax seed or herbal supplements, should inform the physician prior to any treatment.

If you are looking for an in-office, long-lasting wrinkle treatment with immediate results and no downtime, consider an injectable dermal filler.
