What are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?
Fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma, Juvéderm Volbella, and Revanesse Versa are fillers made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body. It may be produced by bacteria and purified for use as injectable soft tissue filler in order to correct the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases, (nasolabial folds). The product is approved for use in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles and creases. Haluronic acid’s plumping and firming qualities can take care of those problematic forehead rows, vertical frown lines between your brows, crow’s feet or laugh-lines, and smile or marionette lines running from your nose to the corners of your mouth.

What does an injectable filler procedure entail?
Dermal filler injections commonly only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being addressed. We start the process by cleaning your face, followed by selecting and marking spots for injection. Dermal fillers formulas often contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine) to decrease discomfort during the procedure. For 24 hours after your procedure we recommend avoiding strenuous activity such as exercise. You should be careful to not touch your face after your dermal filler injections to avoid pushing the filler into unwanted areas.
