No matter how young we feel inside, sometimes the lines on our face tell a different story. If you are seeking a more youthful appearance and are struggling with deep lines and creases on your face, you should consider Juvederm and/or other injectables known as derma fillers. At Chetco Medical & Aesthetics, located in Brookings, OR, we have a selection of derma fillers to meet all of your cosmetic needs.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a type of derma filler used to treat unwanted creases, stubborn wrinkles and deep lines in our face. Juvederm can also be used to enhance lip structure and plump lips that are naturally thin. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler injected into the target area by a doctor on our team.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies. It is responsible for the production of collagen, a connective tissue, which helps give our skin a better texture.
Derma fillers work by adding volume to a target area, which in return, reduces lines and deep creases. Derma fillers are a great way to achieve a more youthful appearance without having to undergo more invasive treatments that may require long recovery times or carry the risk associated with harsher treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Fillers?
There is a reason why fillers are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments. They are safe and effective in giving our face a youthful boost. They target specific stubborn lines or creases commonly found on our face as we age.
Non-Surgical and Non-Invasive
If you are considering a treatment that will reduce deep wrinkles and lines, but are worried about harsh chemicals or abrasive treatments, derma fillers may be the answer. They are a great option for those who don’t want long recovery times and are looking for solutions that are non-surgical and non-invasive.
Easily Erases Deep Lines
A great benefit to derma fillers is that they work immediately to erase deep lines that are otherwise hard to get rid of. These treatments will plump and fill the deep creases and lines we see around our nose, down our chin, and around the mouth area. Giving fullness to these areas instantly erases signs of aging and the tired appearance that comes along with it.
You may naturally have thin lips, but that doesn’t mean your lips have to stay thin forever. Many of us would love to have fuller lips with more structure. Derma fillers are a great solution to achieving this look. Fillers can also help reduce the lines around our lips that we sometimes see with age.
No Set Downtime
There is no downtime with derma fillers. You can receive derma filler treatments and go about your day as you already had planned. This is a great benefit for those who don’t want to deal with long recovery times in their busy schedule.
What Types of Derma Fillers Are There?
There are several types of derma fillers on the market. We offer many of them in our office as part of our treatment plans. You may have heard of other hyaluronic acid fillers like Redtylane and Belotero. They are similar to Juvederm in the results they deliver. Once you have made your initial consultation with our knowledgeable professionals, we can determine which type of derma filler is right for you.
In addition to hyaluronic acid fillers, there are also calcium hydroxylapatite fillers like Radiesse. This particular derma filler helps your body boost its own collagen production in order to achieve the best results.
There are some types of derma fillers that can be combined with other fillers to give you the best results in tackling lines and creases. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your expectations and goals, and help you determine which fillers will work best.
There are several types of derma fillers under the Juvederm derma filler umbrella. We will help you determine which is the right for you based on your customized treatment plan.
Where Can These Injectables Be Used?
Many people receive derma fillers in simliar locations on their faces. Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are two common places for derma fillers. Lip structure and the area surrounding your lips are two other places derma fillers can be successfully applied.
Marionette lines are the creases you may notice below the corner of your lip downward to the chin area. These lines usually angle inward but can also angle outwards depending on your face shape and structure. Marionette lines typically frame the chin and are cosmetically worrisome to those who have them.
Nasolabial folds run from either side of the lower nose, outwards to the lip area. These lines are commonly referred to as laugh lines. They can be deep and will often deepen more with age. They become bothersome when they are always present and no longer go away when you stop smiling. Reducing nasolabial folds can give you a much younger appearance.
Derma fillers can help with wrinkles found around the lips. They are also used to give the lip more fullness. This is ideal for people of all ages.
How Many Syringes of Juvederm Do I Need for Marionette Lines?
Every wrinkle, line, and crease on the face is different and therefore every treatment plan is custom. Most people see results with one treatment of derma fillers. The number of syringes you need depends on a lot of factors. It can depend on how many places on the face you are seeking to reduce lines and creases, and how deep those lines are.
During your initial consultation, our trained team members will go over exactly which derma fillers you will need, and how much of each derma filler is required.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Derma fillers usually last between 9 to 12 months. If you wish to maintain the look after your fillers are gone, you will need to have additional treatments. Most people who receive derma fillers continue on a consistent schedule to maintain their desired look.
Once the derma fillers are gone, you may notice lines and creases to resurface. If you received derma fillers to enhance your lips, you will also see your lips thin out. It’s important to discuss an ongoing schedule during your consultation.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Derma Fillers?
As we get older, it is common for our faces to sag and lose their shape. As we age, we see a reduction of our natural fat pads. When this happens, wrinkles, lines, and creases will appear. A reduction in our body’s production of collagen also contributes to our wrinkles and lines. Collagen is a protein found naturally in our bodies that gives skin its firmness and smooth texture.
When we combine the loss of natural fat pads with the reduction of collagen, we see signs of premature aging. Anyone who suffers from stubborn lines, creases, or unwanted wrinkles may benefit from derma fillers.
If you are also looking to improve the appearance and fullness of your lips, you may also be a good candidate for derma fillers. Derma fillers offer an option to define the outline of the lip structure and the plumpness of the lip with results that lasts up to 12 months.
What Should I Expect From Derma Fillers?
Once the derma filler is injected into the target area, you will see immediate results from your Juvederm treatment. Treatments are typically done within an hour. Since there is no downtime required, you can leave after the treatment is complete.
Remember that fillers last up to one year, so you may need additional fillers in the future to keep the deep lines and creases away.
When Should I Receive Treatments?
Derma filler treatments can be scheduled for a time that works for you. When you are scheduling your treatments, make sure you consider whether you want your derma fillers to align with any other treatments you are receiving.
Some people like to schedule their treatments in advance of special events or occasions when you want to look your best. Make sure you give yourself enough time to schedule your consultation and have derma filler treatments complete so your body can produce the necessary collagen needed to give you the best results.
The benefit of having non-invasive and non-surgical treatments like derma fillers is that it allows you to carry on with your normal day while taking care of your skincare goals needs.
Are There Other Treatments I Can Benefit From?
There are many cosmetic treatments available to help you look your best. We offer many services that can provide you with a more youthful appearance, tighter skin, and a smoother, brighter complexion.
Many people find that combining derma fillers with other treatments gives them the best results. We offer additional cosmetic treatments, such as:
- Chemical peels
- Anti-aging packages
You may find that adding specialized skincare products may help in your search for more youthful skin. Through our anti-aging packages, we can work with you to determine what will be best for your skin’s texture, tightness, and overall appearance. When treatments are applied on the face, especially those that help boost collagen production, the skin is more accepting of skincare products.
What Happens After the Treatment?
For derma fillers, you will notice results right away. It’s important to remain healthy and live a healthy lifestyle in order to give your body the best chance to produce collagen. Living a healthy lifestyle includes drinking lots of water and using sunscreen daily.
During your consultation, we will discuss a schedule for additional derma filler treatments and whether you want to have additional areas of your face targeted for rejuvenation. It’s common for people to see benefits after one treatment and then seek additional treatments to help with other bothersome areas.
If you are considering derma fillers to help reduce deep lines and creases, or perhaps help with a few stubborn wrinkles, your next step is to meet with our professional and friendly team members to determine which fillers are best for you.
We will also discuss your lip enhancement needs and what you are trying to achieve with derma fillers. This may include the reduction of lines around your lips or a more defined lip structure.
