Dermal Fillers Q & A

Joie De Vivre

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved injectable gels used to plump up the skin and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As you age, your body produces less of the substances that keep your skin looking fresh and young: hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. Fillers provide synthetic versions of these substances, so you can offset signs of aging.

A typical session takes under an hour, and while results are temporary, they’re noticeable immediately. You can improve the appearance of:

  • Lip lines
  • Nasolabial folds (lines around the nose and mouth)
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles

What types of dermal fillers are available?

Joie De Vivre Medical Spa offers a variety of dermal fillers, each with distinct formulas and results.

JuvédermⓇ

Juvéderm offers a range of dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, used to restore volume and help your skin retain moisture and softness. Formulas in the Juvéderm family include:

  • VolumaⓇ XC: adds volume to the cheeks
  • Vollure™ XC: improves the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, including softening the nasolabial fold
  • Ultra XC and VolbellaⓇ XC: plump the lips

RestylaneⓇ

Like Juvéderm, Restylane is a family of products used for lip injections and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

These are only a few of the many options available. After an evaluation, Theresa will help you determine which product is best for your individual needs.  

What can I expect from a dermal filler treatment?

Dermal fillers offer a quick and easy anti-aging treatment that can typically be done during your lunch break. Depending on how many areas you’re having treated, a single session can take anywhere from 10 minutes to just under an hour, and you can return to your daily activities immediately.

The results of a dermal filler treatment can last more than a year, and it’s common to return for maintenance treatments every year or two.

Dermal fillers have minimal side effects. You may experience some tenderness and swelling, but these typically subside within a few hours.
