San Antonio Cosmetic SurgeryYour Guide to Injectable Fillers

There are now more ways to look younger than ever. For smooth and youthful-looking skin, injectable fillers are an extremely popular option. Unlike surgical procedures, this form of treatment can be done quickly with virtually no downtime required. If you’ve been considering your options with fillers, then here’s what to know about how you can boost your look with quick and easy injection sessions.

What Are Injectable Fillers?

Injectable fillers help reduce visible signs of aging. By adding volume under the skin, the natural thinning facial tissue can be restored to create a more youthful look. This is particularly helpful with wrinkles and fine lines, but can also be used to help plump lips. That’s because fillers work by placing a thick, crystal-clear gel under the skin. Instead of paralyzing the muscles like Botox, fillers restore volume to hollow areas or sagging skin resulting from aging. Because injectable fillers are non-surgical, they are best for those who want quick and easy treatment sessions. All normal activities can be resumed after treatment and downtime is not necessary.

Types of Injectable Fillers

There are a variety of fillers available, and one may be better suited for you based on factors like age, skin type, and location. While most fillers use hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that is found organically in the body, some use other materials such as calcium hydroxyapatite or poly-L-lactic acid. Hyaluronic acid fillers are some of the most popular options, and these can include the Juvederm family of fillers.

1.) Juvederm Voluma XC is generally administered in the cheek area. This adds a “lift” when boosting facial shape. For increased lines or moderate wrinkles, Juvederm Voluma XC can help take years off your facial profile.

2.) Juvederm Vollure is used for especially stubborn wrinkles and deep lines. In addition to smoothing skin, this type of filler helps plump folds due to a lack of volume in the face. This particular filler lasts up to 18 months, which is longer than other fillers of this brand.

3.) Juvederm Volbella is primarily used for the lips. In addition to smoothing facial creases, dermal fillers are often used to add volume to the lips. This consists of an FDA approved gel that can last up to one year.
