Fillers Q & A

How can fillers make me look younger?

Dermal fillers are gel-like solutions that your dermatologist injects into areas of your face that have lost volume or developed wrinkles due to the natural aging process. As you get older, your skin naturally loses some of its elasticity and suppleness.

Some of this volume loss and wrinkling happens as your body produces less hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that keeps your joints lubricated and helps retain your skin’s moisture.

You also produce less collagen and elastin than you did in your younger years. Fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane help to replenish hyaluronic acid so your skin appears smoother and tighter, while fine lines and wrinkles fade into the background. Some fillers also stimulate your cells to produce new collagen and elastin, which together help to sustain the appearance of tighter, firmer skin.

What areas of my face can Juvéderm enhance?

Juvéderm is one of the most comprehensive and versatile fillers available today. There’s a Juvéderm solution to treat the many different areas of your face, including:

  • Voluma® XC to replenish lost volume in your cheeks
  • Volbella® XC to increase lip volume and create a softer appearance of vertical lip lines
  • Vollure™ XC to soften moderate to severe facial lines for up to 18 months*

 

Each Juvéderm solution contains hyaluronic acid so your skin appears smoother, firmer, and plumper, yet the results are subtle enough to look natural. You look like a younger version of yourself and not overdone at all.

How does Restylane treat the signs of aging?

Restylane is another family of hyaluronic fillers that your doctor injects in several areas of your face and the back of your hands to restore volume and smooth wrinkles and lines. Depending on your areas of concern, Restylane fillers can:

  • Plump, add volume, and lift cheeks
  • Provide subtle lip enhancements and smooth out lines around your mouth
  • Reduce the appearance of laugh lines
  • Reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around your nose and mouth
  • Correct marionette lines

 

Each of the Restylane products is FDA-approved for specific treatment areas. Results typically last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the product and your skin condition.* The doctors at Manhattan Dermatology create a customized treatment plan that helps you achieve the long-lasting, natural results you desire.
