What are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Age can cause the skin to lose firmness, and we may also lose volume in areas like the cheeks. Dermal fillers can enhance your features and smooth lines and wrinkles. They require only a few injections, and you may see results within days. Dermal fillers are a valuable tool for facial rejuvenation. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

FDA-approved injectable fillers have many uses for almost any part of the face. You may have dermal fillers to restore lost volume to your cheeks, enhance your lips, or smooth lines and wrinkles. All dermal fillers use body-friendly materials with minimal risk of reactions. Dr. Lawton and her team use the Juvederm® family of fillers.

What are Dermal Fillers Made of? 

All Juvederm® fillers use hyaluronic acid (HA), a molecule that occurs naturally in your skin. Each formula has different forms of HA and varying types of cross-linking to give them unique properties. HA absorbs and binds moisture in the skin, giving it a plumper, more youthful appearance. The wide range of uses and natural-looking results makes HA the most popular dermal filler material. 

Types of Dermal Fillers

The unique properties of each Juvederm® filler make each one suitable for a different job. Dr. Lawton and her team offer a full spectrum of Juvederm® products to meet your needs. 

Juvederm® Ultra

This thin, flexible filler smooths fine lines around the mouth. Its texture lets it move with your lips for a natural appearance in this challenging area. Juvederm® Ultra is one of only a few fillers that can achieve desired results for vertical lip lines. It typically lasts six to twelve months. 

Juvederm® Ultra Plus

This filler treats moderate to severe wrinkles and deep nasolabial folds. Its denser formula plumps up these lines. It also works well for treating larger areas of the face with fewer injections. It can last from twelve to eighteen months. 

Juvederm® Voluma

This filler excels in the mid-face area, adding volume and shape to the cheeks. It restores fuller, more youthful contours to your mid-face and uses a dense formula that can hold up in this area. It provides noticeable volume enhancement for nine to twelve months. 

Juvederm® Vollure

This filler adds volume to smooth the nasolabial folds. These deep lines, also called smile lines, travel from the nose to the sides of the mouth. Plumping and smoothing these folds can rejuvenate the entire face. Results last twelve to eighteen months.  

Juvederm® Volbella

This lip filler adds a soft, flexible volume that moves with your lips for a natural appearance. Whether your lips have thinned with age or you want to enhance them, this filler will give you plump, soft results that last six to nine months.
