Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that give you the satisfaction of seeing immediate results. Dermal filler injections smooth out wrinkles or restore areas of your face to accomplish a younger-looking appearance. Along with minimizing wrinkles, creases, and facial lines, dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip volume and to fill out shallow facial contours.

MedWeight and Lasers obtains all of its dermal fillers directly from the manufacturers of the products. This assures you receive genuine fillers protected by each company’s product guarantees.

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse is an injectable gel that contains calcium hydroxylapatite. It is sometimes used when you need a larger amount of restoration from volume or fat loss in parts of the face such as temples. Radiesse can also be used to restore volume loss in the hands, and is often used in men to help with larger amounts of volume loss.

What is Belotero®?

Belotero is a lighter injectable gel that helps improve fine lines. Belotero is used to treat facial lines that are too small for regular dermal fillers, and it provides a gentle and natural-looking result.

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s found naturally throughout your body. In your skin, hyaluronic acid adds moisture and volume. When it’s used as an injectable dermal filler, it achieves the same results and helps replace lost fat.

What facial features are treated with dermal fillers?

Different products in the Juvéderm family target specific wrinkles and areas of the face. Three of the Juvéderm formulas used by staff at MedWeight and Lasers treat the following:

  • Juvéderm Volbella® XC: injectable gel plumps lips and minimizes vertical lip lines
  • Juvéderm Vollure™ XC: diminishes moderate to severe wrinkles and folds such as parentheses lines around the nose and mouth
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC: adds volume, lift, and contour to cheeks

What can you expect during and after treatment?

Before treatment, your doctor at MedWeight and Lasers spends time talking with you about the facial features you want to improve. Based on your goals, he decides which Juvéderm products will achieve your expected results.

A Juvéderm session takes about 15-50 minutes, depending on the wrinkles and area treated. All of the Juvéderm products labeled “XC” contain lidocaine, which quickly numbs the injection area.

You may have some redness and swelling at the injection sites, but immediately applying a cold compress helps it go away. You won’t need downtime following treatment with a dermal filler, and you can apply makeup after the procedure is finished.

How long will your results last?

Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid create immediate results. The filler is eventually absorbed into your body, but the results are still long-lasting*:

  • Juvéderm Volbella XC lasts up to one year
  • Juvéderm Vollure XC lasts up to 18 months
  • Juvéderm Voluma XC lasts up to two years

*Individual results may vary.
