About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic treatment that inject hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, which is a naturally-occurring ingredient in the body, into the skin to reduce the presence of lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. While they do not deliver lifelong results, the semi-permanent results do provide noticeable rewards for 18-24 months. Patients often enjoy the following rewards;
- Younger looking skin that’s plump, has more volume, and no lines.
- Increased benefits for the smile and eyes.
- Increased self-confidence due to the results and positive reactions from others.
Dermal fillers have become an increasingly popular route to younger-looking and feature as the top anti-aging procedure available, especially when completed by a team of experienced professionals like Pure Beauty Medical Spa.
Dermal Filler Types and Treatment Areas
Dermal fillers are available in various types and can be used to treat a wide range of areas, including some that you may not have considered. The dermal fillers injections can be used on the face and body to gain smooth, plump skin. Popular locations include;
- Lips and vermillion border,
- Marionette lines,
- Mouth corners,
- Naso-labial folds,
- Smoker’s lines,
- Tear troughs.
In addition to a range of treatment areas, a selection of different dermal fillers are available. Pure Beauty Medical Spa can administer each of the following.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
The Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is an injection designed to correct severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and depressed cheeks. They contain an anesthetic called lidocaine for added comfort while the treatment provides plump, full, soft, supple skin.
Juvederm® Ultra XC
While not as thick as the Ultra Plus, Juvederm Ultra XC still contains lidocaine and is used to correct minor facial wrinkles, marionette lines, and deep nasolabial folds. Many users consider it to be like a liquid facelift, giving you all the same benefits in a far less invasive manner.
Juvederm Volbella® XC
The Juvederm Volbella® XC injections are used primarily for lip augmentation. They are capable of restoring a youthful look by correcting lip lines while also producing fuller lips with increased volume and a softer touch. Again, they contain lidocaine for added comfort.
Juvederm Vollure® XC
The Juvederm Vollure® XC hyaluronic acid injections are designed to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds, as well as lines and creases around the mouth and nose. The lidocaine reduces any discomfort, while treatments can be completed in just 45 minutes.
Juvederm Voluma® XC
Primarily used on the cheeks, Juvederm Voluma® XC delivers greater volume to the treatment area, removing lines and delivering the youthful facial shape associated with beauty. The injections use lidocaine for reduced discomfort while the downtime is minimal.
Restylane Lyft® & Sculptra®
The Restylane Lyft® & Sculptra® dermal fillers can be used to iron out wrinkles and moderate to severe lines on the cheeks. However, they are also a popular choice of treatment when targeting aging skin on the hands.
