Restylane® · Perlane® · Juvederm™ · Juvederm Plus™
Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm™, and Juvederm Plus™ are popular dermal fillers in Scottsdale used to treat facial wrinkles and plump up lips. Because they are water-soluble, they fill wrinkles and depressions in the skin with a natural substance while slowly being reabsorbed by the body. All of these products are composed of a crystal-clear non-animal biodegradable gel based on a natural substance present in the human body called hyaluronic acid.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are very effective for diminishing the nasolabial folds, wrinkles around the corners of the mouth (parentheses lines), and lines around the lips (smoker’s lines). These injectables are also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dr. White or her licensed aesthetician, Lynda Ludwig, RN, will discuss your options with you for dealing with wrinkles and/or lip augmentation. They will help you understand the pros and cons of each wrinkle treatment, enabling you to make your own decision about wrinkle treatment.
The specific risks and the suitability of fillers like Restylane can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. White. All procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are rare.
Complementary Plastic Surgery Procedures
Additional procedures that may enhance the results of dermal fillers include Brow Lift, Eyelid Lift, Facelift, or Botox®.
The Treatment Session
The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. They often contain a local anesthetic, which numbs the area to any discomfort. The result is instantaneous and produces long-lasting natural enhancement that is gentle and safe to your skin. After treatment, no recovery time or downtime is needed.
Results will last from 6 to 12 months. Experience shows that fillers are effective for up to 6 months when injected in the lips. Because the effects of dermal fillers are not permanent, you have the option to discontinue use if your tastes or fashion trends change.
