As we age our faces lose volume and we begin to look older than we feel. Lips get thinner, cheeks look gaunt, temples get hollow, under eyes sag, and more. Dermal fillers offer a natural looking solution by instantly replacing lost volume and creating a refreshed, natural looking appearance. Donna Kelleher-Yassen, NP has a wide variety of dermal filler options available to help you achieve your goals. Dermal fillers are not a “one size fits all” kind of procedure and Donna can help you determine which ones would work best for you.
JUVÉDERM® XC Family of Dermal Fillers
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Often the cheeks are the first facial area to show age-related volume loss and adding some dimension back to the area can restore a more youthful appearance.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC adds volume to smooth the lines around the nose and mouth, also known as “smile lines” or “parentheses”. It can also be used to add fullness to thin lips.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe lines by adding volume to the lines around your nose and mouth.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ XC adds subtle volume to the lips and helps smooth vertical lip lines.
Restylane® Family of Dermal Fillers
Restylane® is used to add volume and fullness to moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, also known as “smiles lines” or “parentheses”. Restylane® can also be used to add fullness to thin lips.
Restylane® Lyft is used in the cheeks for mid-face volume loss. It can also be used to treat “smiles lines” or “parentheses”.
Restylane® Silk is designed to add volume to the lips and to smooth wrinkles around the mouth.
Restylane® Refyne is to soften laugh lines around the nose and mouth.
Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines.
Both Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions.
Radiesse® is a filler that replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen. Areas treated include cheeks and moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the lower face. Results are long lasting and natural looking.
Radiesse® can also restore lost volume to aging hands.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is a different kind of “filler”. It is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually restore your own natural collagen for subtle facial volume. Treatments are typically three to four injection sessions over a 3-4 month period. Results appear slowly and steadily over the treatment time and have been reported to last up to two years or more.
