Fillers Q & A

Cleveland Family Health

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that enhance the contours of your face. They work by plumping targeted areas, increasing lost volume, and smoothing skin.

Dermal fillers can address a number of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Softening facial wrinkles and creases
  • Improving appearance of recessed scar tissue
  • Decreasing shadow of lower eyelids
  • Enhancing facial contours
  • Plumping lips

Many men and women prefer dermal fillers over surgical options due to decreased risk of side effects, shorter recovery times, and the ability to achieve subtle enhancements without a drastic “face-lift” appearance.

You should see noticeable improvements in facial contouring just hours after your appointment. As time passes, your body absorbs the dermal filler substance, and the effects will slowly fade.

What is JUVÉDERM?

JUVÉDERM is a collection of dermal fillers and the most popular option on the market today. There are different JUVÉDERM formulations to enhance different areas of your face. Prior to treatment, Marian works with you to determine which product is right for you and how to create the best possible aesthetic outcome.

JUVÉDERM is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body. Hyaluronic acid gels are excellent dermal filler options because your body recognizes the substance and does not respond with inflammation. In fact, JUVÉDERM gel is slowly absorbed by your body over time.

JUVÉDERM can enhance fullness in your cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. Cleveland Family Health offers JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is another collection of dermal fillers that’s also formulated with hyaluronic acid. Cleveland Family Health offers the full line of five Restylane products, including Restylane, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne.

Restylane dermal fillers can enhance fullness in your cheeks, treat moderate to severe facial folds, restore lost volume in the middle portion of your face, smooth laugh lines, and plump lips and wrinkles around your mouth.

Results can last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on where the fillers were placed. Some people may need two sessions to deliver the proper level of fullness, while others can see results after only one set of injections.
