Dermal Fillers – Juvederm®, Restylane® and Radiesse®

Pittsfield, MA – Call us today 413-441-8453

Injecting Dermal Fillers is an art. Just as a painter may use different size brushes, colors and thickness of paint, our practitioners choose one or more of the different types of dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and Radiesse®. Dermal Fillers are used to lift, sculpt, shape, define and volumize different areas of your face. Loss of facial volume occurs over time and can be due to hereditary factors, sunlight, cigarette smoking, weight loss and oxidative stress. With Dermal Fillers we can encourage natural collagen growth, hydrate the skin, lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, sharpen jawlines, sculpt chins, minimize acne scaring and plump or hydrate the lips. The results are subtle and can be long-lasting.

What is Juvederm®?

Juvederm®  products are safe, non-animal, stabilized, biodegradable gels formed in a laboratory from highly purified bacterial cultures.  The main component is cross-linked hyaluronic acid that is molecularly identical to the hyaluronic acid (HA) found naturally in the human body. Juvederm® adds volume to specific areas of the face. Since Juvederm® is molecularly identical to human HA, there is a very rare incidence of allergy to the product and no skin test is required.

To convert HA molecules into a stable, lasting filler, they are bonded together, or “cross-linked,” in a specific fashion and suspended in water to make a gel. Tighter cross-linking, reflects higher percentage of HA molecules in the gel and also determines the thickness of the gel.

How Does Juvederm® Work?

Juvederm® delivers and replaces moisture and nutrients to fine lines, wrinkles, or sunken areas of the face helping you achieve a more youthful appearance. You will immediately see results from your Juvederm® treatment.

Why use Juvederm®?

As practitioners, having a suite of specialized fillers allows us to fine tune each patients treatment to achieve a natural result.

*Results will vary depending on amount of dermal filler product used. Your prescriber will make recommendations based on his or her experience. We understand that cost is often an issue and we will create a plan that works for you.

While there are many similarities between Juvederm®® Ultra Plus XC has larger and tighter “pearls”, allowing for correction of deep lines and severe volume loss. For those clients with mild to moderate volume loss,  Juvederm® Ultra XC  is a good choice, with smaller “pearls” and a softer result.

*With sufficient product to correct areas of concern, these fillers have been reported to last up to one year.

What does the XC mean?

XC means there is lidocaine, a numbing agent added to the gel. This helps create a more comfortable injection experience.

Vycross Cross-Linking Technology- (HA molecules of different size and weight)

These fillers can be injected a little more deeply to smooth more severe folds “V” fillers spread a little less readily than Juvederm but they are still soft.

Voluma (Cheeks)

The thickest, strongest gel, for deep injection into the cheek, to get a nice lift and volume boost and/or jawline and chin for that sharp, sculpted look.

Volbella (Lips)

The thinnest, most hydrating, spreadable gel-FDA approved for subtle lip enhancement and perfect for vertical lip lines.

Vollure (Mid-face)

Vollure has “expression technology” and is used to treat the lower third of the face, while allowing for natural facial expressions and moment.

*With sufficient product to correct areas of concern, these fillers have been reported to last up to 18 months.

DermaSculpt blunt tipped cannular is our preferred method of injecting Juvederm® Dermal fillers. Cannulars can prevent up to 90% of bruising and swelling and most clients state they are totally comfortable and relaxed with this form of injection.

ALL Juvederm® products can be reversed and quickly melted using a injectable enzyme called Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase dissolves the hyaluronic acid particles.

Cost Considerations:

All hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary in nature. Adding a layer of product before the “foundation” layer dissolves is a good way to maintain your aesthetic goals.
