As we age, we naturally lose volume in certain areas of the face. With a small amount of dermal fillers in the right places, we can shed years off your appearance and restore shape and volume while maintaining a natural appearance. This takes considerable skill, and our doctors are highly educated and impeccably trained.
The difference between and a beautiful face and others is a difference in millimeters. To know the difference it takes someone with knowledge of proportions and shape that make a beautiful face. We have studied these differences and proportions and try to bring the art of fillers to perfection.
Dermal fillers are best for:
Dermal Filler treatments typically take 30 to 60 minutes and a local anesthetic is provided with each injection. Most of that time is spent studying the face so that we can achieve the best possible results. We add small amounts of filler in all the right places and perform real-time evaluation as we proceed. We use a careful and artistic approach combined with a knowledge of ideal facial proportions.
Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last up to a year or longer, although the procedure can be repeated as often as necessary.
For patients in their late 30’s and beyond, adding volume to the to the mid-face and cheeks with even a small amount of filler can give a more youthful appearance while still appearing natural. When problems at the top of the face are addressed first, before other areas lower on the face are treated, often less filler is needed in other areas.
Perhaps the most rewarding area to treat for us is the lips. When filler is placed skillfully, and in moderation, the results are amazing. We always strive for a natural appearance and would rather err on the side of too little than too much. We treat every precious face as if it were our own.
There are several different types of fillers on the market and your doctor at Artemis Colorado – Vein & Cosmetic Center will advise you which filler would be best for your particular case. The most commonly used fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Because it is natural, reactions to it are rare.
Juvéderm Ultra XC® is an excellent general purpose filler for most areas of the face, including the nasolabial folds, lips, “marionette” lines and even cheeks.
Juvéderm Voluma®, specifically designed to restore volume to enhance the cheeks and mid-face, is a newer hyaluronic filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. The thicker consistency of Juvéderm Voluma® makes it ideal for cheek and mid-face volume correction, and it can last up to 2 years instead of the typical 9 to 12 months of other fillers.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC is a crystal-clear gel that is injected directly into and around the lips using an ultra-fine needle to temporarily plump the lips for lip augmentation and to smooth the appearance of lines around the mouth. The lidocaine gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.
