A Spring Rejuvenation Guide to Fillers

Spring is a time of rejuvenation and fresh starts. It’s also a time to get ready to spend time outside and enjoy your favorite summer activities. Fillers are one of the easiest ways to rejuvenate your look, and we offer many of the most widely-recognized filler treatments here at SkinCeuticals SkinLab by Plastic Surgery Associates in Grand Rapids, MI. Here’s what to know about fillers and how you can get started.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that deposit a volume-boosting gel into the skin. Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural ingredient in your skin that gives it hydration. The hyaluronic acid binds to moisture and produces youthful volume where you want it. Although they’re only temporary, they produce instant results. They’re also a great way to boost your look ahead of a big event or get ready for the warmer season.

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers are an incredibly versatile tool, especially in the hands of our experienced injectors. Some of the many ways that dermal fillers can be used include:

  • Lip augmentation
  • Cheek sculpting
  • Jawline contouring
  • Non-surgical rhinoplasty
  • Tear troughs
  • Temples
  • Lines and folds
  • Hands
  • And more

Although dermal fillers are a great anti-aging treatment, they can also contour, refine, and change your features to bring them into better balance. They can even be combined with other injectable treatments for the best results.

What Dermal Fillers Are Available?

We offer the complete line of Juvéderm fillers, which includes:

Each differs in its thickness—for example, the more viscous the gel, the more support and volume it produces. Volux is one of the thickest, firmest formulations, which makes it best for contouring areas like the chin, jawline, and cheeks. On the other hand, Ultra XC is a thinner formulation that makes it ideal for fine lines and wrinkles in delicate areas around the lips. A knowledgeable injector can help you make the right choice for your treatment area and intended look.

How Long Do Fillers Last?

This is an understandably important question! Fillers last around 12-18 months on average, but they can vary widely based on factors like the formulation, treatment area, and your metabolism. You can extend your results by returning for touch-up treatments regularly, and your injector can work with you to understand the best time to schedule.
