Juvéderm® – Facial Fillers

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face, plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Dr. Buono can use either hyaluronic acid gel fillers or a patient’s own fat to achieve your desired results.

Over time, your face changes in many ways due to age, sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Along with lines and wrinkles forming, we also naturally lose subcutaneous fat, the facial skin stretches appearing lax, and the facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so expression lines become more apparent and lips appear thinner. Some women, however, may have naturally thin lips and may simply desire more fullness. Fortunately, the Juvéderm® collection of fillers includes several formulations to treat different areas of the face. Dr. Buono will customize your treatment to your needs to deliver natural-looking, long-lasting results.

The Juvéderm® collection of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. Using a fine needle, your aesthetic specialist injects the smooth gels under the skin. Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Juvéderm® XC, and Juvéderm® Ultra XC also contain an anesthetic, called lidocaine, to help reduce discomfort during your treatment.

LIFT & CONTOUR CHEEKS

Age-related midface volume loss makes our cheeks appear flat and the skin sag. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is designed to add just enough volume to gently lift and contour the cheek area giving fuller cheeks and a more youthful midface.

SMOOTH YOUR WRINKLES & LINES

Over time, our skin loses moisture and elasticity in combination with other factors such as genetics and environmental elements like sun exposure. These changes cause moderate to severe lines and folds such as parentheses and marionette lines to form around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm ® Ultra Plus XC, and Juvéderm Vollure™ XC go beneath the surface to reduce the appearance of deep lines and folds, and give you the natural-looking, youthful results you want. In addition, Dr. Buono will plan a customized skin care regimen that will maximize your healthy and beautiful skin

WHAT DERMAL FILLERS WON’T DO

For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift may be the best approach. Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, such as soft tissue fillers, cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time when consideration of a facelift becomes appropriate. Dr. Buono will discuss what options are best for you based on your concerns.

FAT INJECTIONS AS DERMAL FILLERS

Dr. Buono will perform liposuction to harvest fat from the patient’s own body, the “donor area” which is usually the abdomen or buttock which is then re-injected into the target area, the “grafted area” to enhance facial fullness, fill creases or build up shallow contours. The grafted fat then must redevelop a blood supply in order to survive. It is important to understand that most of the transferred fat usually survives in the face, but the results can be a less predictable then hyaluronic acid fillers.

LIP ENHANCEMENT

Also known as lip augmentation or lip injections.

Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are many ways to enhance them.

For Natural-looking lips, Dr. Buono uses Juvéderm® Ultra XC for injection into the lips and perioral area to achieve a fuller lip in adults over 21, and Juvéderm® Volbella for injection along the vermillion border (lip line) to treat fine wrinkles or vertical lip lines.  Whatever your unique needs are when it comes to your lips, Dr. Buono uses the Juvéderm® collection to achieve your desired results.
