Understanding Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is what gives youthful skin its firmness, fullness, and elasticity. We have an abundance of it during our youth however, as we age hyaluronic acid decreases.
Juvéderm, Versa, and Belotero are brands of injectable dermal fillers that use a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid to add volume to your skin and smooth out wrinkles. Dermal fillers don’t affect your ability to make regular facial expressions, so your results both look and feel natural.
Which areas can be treated with Juvéderm?
Juvéderm fillers are FDA-cleared to add volume to the cheeks and lips and to smooth wrinkles in the following areas:
- Nasal folds
- Lip lines
- Along the sides of the mouth
For the tear trough area underneath the eyes, your PureLee Redefined injection specialist may recommend Belotero®, another brand of dermal filler that is particularly effective at addressing fine lines and hollowness below the eyes.
What to expect during my filler treatment?
Before starting the treatment, your PureLee Redefined provider will discuss your aesthetic goals and then perform a skin analysis. This helps determine where and how many fillers you need for best results.
We will then begin the process of injecting the Juvéderm® and Versa® fillers which contain a numbing agent to ensure your comfort during your injections. If you are concerned about any discomfort, you can ask your specialist to apply a topical numbing gel before your treatment.
The procedure typically takes 15-60 minutes to complete your injections, depending on the area to be treated and other factors.
What happens after my filler treatment?
The great thing about filler treatments is that there is no downtime involved! You can resume to normal activities after the completion of your appointment, however, we may recommend that you avoid some things, like strenuous exercise or sun exposure, for 24 hours after your procedure.
After your treatment, you should notice that your skin is smoother and fuller. Depending on the product used, your results will last between six months and two years.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Belotero and Juvéderm are considered safe and are FDA-approved. Some minor side effects may occur such as redness or swelling You may also see some bruising around the injection site which will typically subside in two to four weeks. More severe side effects are possible, but extremely rare.
