What are Dermal Fillers?
While there are many types of dermal fillers available, Dr. Lawton and her team offer the Juvéderm® family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers because we feel that these provide the best results for our patients.
Hyaluronic acid occurs in the skin, where it acts to attract and bind moisture. Because the body recognizes this material, it will not reject the filler. Although all Juvéderm® products contain hyaluronic acid, they contain different forms with a variety of properties. This ensures that we have a Juvéderm® filler for almost every part of your face:
Using a dense hyaluronic acid gel, this dermal filler adds volume to the mid-face area, especially the cheeks.
This filler works on the nasolabial folds, the deep creases that run from the corner of the nose to the edge of the mouth, also called smile lines.
Designed for the lips, this filler has a much softer and thinner texture, making it flexible and natural-looking.
This filler works especially well for lines in delicate areas such as around the mouth, letting people maintain all their natural facial expressions.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
Used to correct deep nasolabial folds and other deep facial wrinkles, this filler has the right consistency to stay in place and support these areas.
An “XC” after the name of a Juvéderm® dermal filler means that it contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes each shot more comfortable.
