Dermal Fillers at SD Botox PB
Dermal fillers are used to enhance volume in hollow areas of the face, provide greater definition and fullness, and of course, smooth out or eliminate the appearance of deep folds and facial lines. Essentially, dermal fillers instantly restore a more youthful look, as results are seen almost immediately after treatment. Each filler is formulated with Hyaluronic acid as its chief component. Because HA has the ability to swell when combined with water, it creates the perfect filling effect to create natural-looking volume in multiple areas of the face, including lips and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid also promotes new collagen growth in the treated area, improving results even more after the initial injection is performed. Most of our fillers also contain a small percentage of lidocaine, helping to ease discomfort during treatment and provide a numbing effect afterward. We also provide patients the option of topical numbing, using BLT cream, prior to their treatment. Dermal fillers are comprised of ingredients that are naturally absorbed by the body over time, making all Dermal Filler procedures temporary. Patients can expect results to last between 9 and 12 months, for most fillers, depending on individual metabolism. However, some of our fillers are formulated to last between 18 to 24 months. Our selection of dermal fillers are available in varying levels of viscosity, allowing our patients to have the perfect filler to choose from for all their unique, aesthetic needs. Overall Dermal Filler treatments deliver an immediate, refreshed and youthful appearance, typically up to a full year before touch-ups are needed.

Types of Fillers:
JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS and JUVEDERM VOLBELLA
Most typically used for lip augmentations to enhance volume and shape, formulated with lidocaine to ease discomfort during injection. Lasts 9 to 12 months.
Juvederm family’s newest dermal filler. Most typically used for Nasolabial folds, also known as Marionette lines. Formulated with a lower viscosity, (thickness), making this the perfect filler to fill in deep folds and fine lines around mouth. Lasts 18 to 24 months.
Most typically used to enhance volume in cheeks, or other areas of the face where bone is present. Voluma is a thicker substance, making it a better filler option for cheek augmentations, creating a more defined, contoured look. Lasts approximately 2 years.
Most typically used to decrease hollowness under the eyes, also known as tear troughs. Formulated to attract less water, making it a more fluid substance to move naturally with everyday facial expressions. Can also be used for lip augmentation. Lasts approximately 9 months.
RESTYLANE REFYNE and DEFYNE
Most typically used to restore youthful appearance to small lines around mouth, known as Nasolabial folds. Because it is resistant to stretch, it is best used around the mouth, the most dynamic part of the face with the most movement. It is used to support natural facial expressions, including smiling. Lasts about one year.
*Although it is rarely the case here at SDBotox, patients do have the option to remove their filler, should they decide to reverse the treatment. Using a second substance, filler can be dissolved if a patient is unsatisfied with the all or part of their treatment.
