Types of Dermal Fillers
Several dermal fillers are offered at ImageRx®, all of which are safe and effective for the treatment of lines, wrinkles, or scarring. During your consultation, we will discuss your ideal outcome, and recommend which treatment is right for you.
Juvéderm™ is a colorless hyaluronic acid-based gel that is injected for the purpose of diminishing deep wrinkles or nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic acid is a material produced naturally in the body, providing nutrients and hydration to the skin. After treatment, you will be able to see visible improvements in the texture of your skin right away. This FDA-approved dermal filler produces results that can last up to a year.
VOLLURE® XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including the smile/laugh lines around the nose and mouth also known as nasolabial folds. VOLLURE® XC lasts up to 18 months with optimal treatment. Over time, wrinkles develop on your face, and nasolabial folds may become more visible. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC is designed to temporarily add volume to the facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.
VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines (lines around the mouth), often called lipstick lines, vertical lip lines, or lip wrinkles. VOLBELLA® XC lasts up to 1 year, with optimal treatment. 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.
VOLUMA® XC: As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area. VOLUMA® XC provides natural-looking and long-lasting results that last up to 2 years with optimal treatment. As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. JUVEDERM® VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging. It is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
