derm fillers - Charlotte, NC

Are you hoping to rejuvenate their facial features with injectable fillers instead of with surgery or some other extensive procedure? Visit your Ballantyne area dermatologist to determine if you are a candidate for JUVÉDERM ULTRA™, a dermal filler designed to restore volume to depleted and wrinkled areas of the face. Patients who are candidates for dermal fillers typically achieve graceful and natural-looking results that can last for months, and that can be safely repeated when necessary. The process effectively diminishes the presence of lines, and wrinkles, while restoring a patient’s natural radiance.

Explaining Juvéderm™ injections

JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler gel that uses hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. It temporarily adds volume to facial tissue, creating a smoother appearance to the face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first and only FDA approved filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is available in three formulations, allowing your dermatologist provide treatment based upon your unique individual needs. JUVÉDERM™ can be administered singularly, or in combination with other dermal fillers.

Patients are naturally concerned about pain, and injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. However, the smooth consistency of the Juvéderm™ gel allows your dermatologist to administer it easily and smoothly. It is injected directly into the skin with a fine needle, which helps to reduce discomfort. Juvéderm™’ injectable gel will help to diminish moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal skin restoration, and the results usually last about 6 months.

The typical candidate for Juvéderm™

Most candidates for Juvéderm™ treatment are basically in good health, with realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment. Juvéderm™ patients typically experience effective treatment for the following skin conditions:

  • Jowl lines – lines that form at the corners of the mouth and extend down to the bottom of the chin.
  • Smile lines – these lines extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
  • Lip lines – Usually caused by smoking or excessive sun exposure, these are vertical lines that appear just above the upper lip.
  • Sunken cheeks
