While Botox produces good results on active wrinkles and passive lines, lost facial volume needs another approach. Christina Stokke, Dr. Kevin Stokke, and the team at Nouvelle Medical Aesthetics in Davis, California, use the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers to produce long-lasting results that complement other cosmetic treatments. Call to schedule an appointment to find out how dermal fillers such as Juvéderm can help you.
As skin ages, it loses surface elasticity and, deeper down, collagen begins to break down. The result is sagging skin that falls prey to the effects of gravity, creating lines, wrinkles, and lost facial volume. The loss of hyaluronic acid in the dermal layer means skin doesn’t retain moisture the way it did when you were younger.
The Juvéderm line of fillers counteracts some of these effects. Made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid, the Juvéderm products each address a specific skin care need. Injected into the skin, these fillers add volume and fullness, reversing the effects of aging by propping up skin where lost collagen creates lines and wrinkles, and adding volume to cheeks or lips, restoring a more youthful profile.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC
This filler targets cheek fullness, called age-related midface volume loss, which occurs when cheeks flatten or sag as you get older, creating nasolabial folds. The Voluma XC gel fills and lifts the skin around the injection site, restoring volume naturally. The hyaluronic acid base also attracts and traps moisture in the treatment area, aiding both cheek fullness and natural skin moisturizing. The effects of the Voluma injection may last as long as two years, and after that time, many patients require less filler with each follow-up procedure.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC
Juvéderm Vollure XC is made to fill in lines and wrinkles and while remaining closer to the injection site than other fillers. Vollure works well on so-called parentheses lines, those arcs that occur on each side of your mouth. Vollure can also fill moderate to severe passive wrinkles and lines. While individual results may vary, Vollure treatments typically last up to 18 months.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
This dermal filler gel is formulated for use on and around your lips. It adds volume to the lips while also filling the vertical lip lines that often suggest aging. Unlike some products that produce exaggerated lip fullness, Volbella XC aims for a natural appearance. Treatments typically last about a year, and subsequent injections usually require less gel to achieve the same effect.
Yes, Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body. If any side effects occur, they usually take the form of irritation around the injection site.
Nouvelle Medical Aesthetics also offers Restylane dermal fillers.
