Dermal fillers are a great way to add volume and contouring to the face, yielding beautiful results. They can be an especially great option if you’re not quite ready for surgery, but the longevity varies depending on which ones you go with. Knowing how long each one lasts will help you make the right decision. If you’re considering dermal fillers, it’s important to know which ones are right for you.
What Kinds of Fillers Are Out There?
Dr. Lawton’s office is pleased to carry the Juvéderm line of products– they’re safe, effective, and a great alternative to surgery. In fact, there’s very little downtime involved and recovery time is minimal making Juvéderm ideal for those with a busy lifestyle who want lasting results.
Ideal for those concerned with thinning lips, Juvéderm Ultra is a filler that helps the patient achieve voluminous, plump lips. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a thick gel that is designed for more delicate areas on the face like the lips. Because the lip area is so delicate and active, fillers in this area tend to wear out faster– patients can expect results to last for about six months.
Dermal Fillers Consultations Available
Juvéderm Ultra Plus
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a thicker hyaluronic acid (HA) gel designed to combat significant fat loss in larger areas like the cheeks and temples. Because this gel is thicker than its competitors, the effects of Juvéderm Ultra Plus can be seen within a few weeks and can last for around 12-18 months.
Juvéderm Volbella is also designed for the lips with special attention being paid to vertical wrinkles and smoker’s lines. This HA gel is a little thinner, so lips look natural and hydrated as a result. Results are visible shortly after injection and last for 6-9 months.
This particular filler reduces the deep lines around the nasolabial folds (the area between the ends of the mouth and the corners of the nose). When injected, Juvéderm Vollure can take years off of the patient’s appearance by adding volume where deep lines occur. Patients can expect results to last for around 12-18 months.
Juvéderm Voluma is ideal for the middle of the face, especially the cheeks. As our skin loses elasticity, we lose significant volume around the cheekbones and the surrounding areas. By injecting Juvéderm Voluma, you can reverse the “sunken-in” look associated with aging. Results last for 9-12 months.
