Dermal fillers are clear, gel-like substances injected into the skin to treat aesthetic concerns. At Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center, the team uses the No. 1 brand of dermal fillers, Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that promotes skin moisturization, plumpness, and suppleness. Hyaluronic acid molecules attract and absorb water, so they can expand dramatically to help your skin look its best.
Volume loss is normal as you age, but Juvéderm dermal fillers can restore lost volume.
There’s a full spectrum of Juvéderm fillers, each made to address a specific issue affecting the face. The most common treatment areas include:
Every Juvéderm formula has properties ideal for the part of the face being treated. For example, fillers used in the mid-face area are thicker and firmer to lift the skin. Those in the undereye area are thinner and lighter, so they’re better suited for the delicate skin there.
Dermal fillers take effect immediately. But your initial results might be exaggerated because it’s normal to have some mild swelling following treatment. Usually, swelling dissipates in a couple of days, and you can see the full results.
Juvéderm offers excellent longevity, with each filler lasting at least 12 months and some lasting 18-24 months. Juvéderm fillers have different lifespans because they’re different formulas.
The area of the face also has an impact: fillers injected in the lips, which you move frequently, break down faster than those injected in a less-active area like the middle of the face.
To maximize your results, combine dermal fillers with other treatments like PDO threading, which helps your body make new collagen to support long-lasting improvement.
