What are dermal fillers?
Often referred to as “liquid facelifts,” injectable dermal fillers in Rockwall at Juvanew Medspa provide more immediate results with less downtime and money. The majority of the newest dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a basic element found naturally in our connective skin tissue. HA has the ability to draw and hold water, helping to nourish, “plump” and moisturize the skin. Unfortunately, as we age, our hyaluronic acid levels decrease over time, leading to a number of aesthetic facial issues, such as drooping, dryness and wrinkles.
People visit Juvanew Medspa for dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, VOLUMA, Belotero and Radiesse from Dallas, Fort Worth, Tyler and other north Texas communities. To get started, request a consultation online or call our office at (214) 771-4611 to schedule an appointment.
HA-based dermal fillers can be used to:
- Enhance and augment thin lips
- Restore lost facial volume
- Correct, soften, and smooth out deep folds and facial lines
- Correct problematic wrinkles
- Contour and shape the cheeks and face
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Although the visible benefits of dermal fillers are noticeable immediately following the treatment, the results are not permanent, and the treatments need to be repeated periodically to maintain the results. Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of BOTOX®. At Juvanew Medspa, we offer the following safe, effective, and widely respected dermal fillers: JUVÉDERM,® VOLUMA®, Belotero and Radiesse. Our registered nurses are highly experienced working with dermal fillers, and after assessing your needs and goals, will select the best dermal filler, or combination of injectables to achieve your desired results.
JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth consistency injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid. JUVÉDERM® instantly restores any lost volume to your skin, and fills in troublesome facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year from initial treatment, and is the preferred product for lip augmentation procedures. JUVÉDERM® has a remarkably smooth consistency, making it an ideal filler for those with thin, sensitive skin, and it is a safe and effective dermal filler that can be used on all skin types and ethnic groups.
The newest HA filler to gain FDA approval (2013) is VOLUMA®, which restores volume in the midface to create a natural, youthful face. It is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross, which helps provide an excellent lifting capacity. This special cross-linking also helps to avoid degradation, allowing VOLUMA® to last up to 2 years. And since it is an HA filler, it can be molded and shaped into the desired contour after injection.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a newer-generation hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your unique facial features, softening fine lines and wrinkles, and creating smooth, natural-looking results. BELOTERO BALANCE® is a unique and versatile treatment that is strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft and gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the vertical lip lines (thin lines appear above the lips).
Radiesse® is used to add volume to the face, particularly in the cheeks and temples, where volume loss is generally the most noticeable. Radiesse® is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (a natural material found in human bone tissue), which stimulates the production of your body’s own collage. Radiesse® also augments facial volume on its own, providing more immediate visible results, and is utilized in multiple procedures, including: nose sculpting, lip augmentation, filling in laugh lines, cheek contouring, chin molding, jaw line contouring, and rejuvenating the appearance of the hands. Radiesse® can last up to one year.
