Facial Fillers in main line, Philadelphia & Bryn MawrWith age, our faces lose firmness and tone. Facial fillers such as Juvederm can be used to reverse this effect. Juvederm is the most popular filler in the United States due to it's lasting effect (approx. 9-12 months). Juvederm comes in two different types- ultra (softer gel, best used creating volume to lips, lower lids, building nose bridge, elongating chin, forehead sculpting) and ultra plus (thicker gel, best used to areas with thicker skin like cheeks, nasolabial folds- the most popular location).
our practice is a black DIAMOND or top 500 LEVEL center for Juvederm (top 2% in the country).Facial wrinkle treatment with Juvederm can be used to increase the volume in these areas and to reduce the severity of those lines. A topical anesthetic is applied to injection area and the medication is then injected under the skin. The improvement is immediate. The effects generally last from nine months to one year depending on which product you use. There are many facial fillers available today. The most popular fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. The two most commonly used forms of hylauronic acid fillers are Juvederm, Voluma and Restylane. These three products are very similar in effect, but Restalyne generally last about six months while Juvederm will last up to one year and Voluma up to 18-24 months. Other popular facial fillers include Radiesse (calcium particles), Artefil (plexiglass particles in collagen) and Sculptra (biodegradable thermoplastic). Although longer lasting effects can be achieved with these materials, there is a significant risks associated with these products and removal of the products is very difficult and can lead to scarring and deformity.
"Because the face is ever changing, it is important to use a product that can be modified with time. More permanent fillers like fat and collagen may look good today, but awkward five years from now. Removing permanent fillers require surgery and results in unacceptable scarring. This is why I only use HA based fillers like Juvederm. They have the safest profiles of all fillers on the market." - Dr. Lee
