Volume Enhancement

Volume Enhancement

Dermal Fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a soft injectable gel that is placed just under the skin to help enhance volume, revitalize the skin, and reduce non animated wrinkles instantly. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms that is vital for the transportation of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.

The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months. Some patients have experienced results that last up to a full year, depending on the product used for the procedure and individual’s metabolism. Dermal filler injections can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. As your face changes over time, dermal fillers allow you to control you looks subtly as you age.

The dermal fillers used for treatments at Lifestyle Medicine are include Juvederm and Radiesse

Areas that can be enhanced with dermal fillers include:

  • Nose to mouth lines
  • Between the eyebrows
  • Lips (adding volume and shape)
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw line
  • Elbows/Knees
  • Hands

The treatment is quick, typically taking about 15-20 minutes.

Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment.
