How Can I Treat Facial Volume Loss?
At Krauss Dermatology, we offer three brands of dermal fillers that provide facial volume restoration. They use hyaluronic acid, the most widely used and tested dermal filler material, as their building blocks. Hyaluronic acid also holds moisture in the skin, adding natural-looking volume and shape. The formulation of each filler allows us to have different consistencies for particular uses. Thicker fillers mimic cheek bones and jawlines, medium consistency fillers feel like the natural fat pads they augment, and fine fillers allow us to make changes to erase fine and etched in lines.
This family of hyaluronic acid fillers includes members like Juvederm® Voluma and Volux. Juvederm® Voluma is designed to restore lost volume to the cheek, chin and jawline area. It provides volume and definition. Volux takes this a degree further adding structural integrity to a sagging jawline. Both of these fillers are the longest lasting hyaluronic acid fillers available today with results often lasting 2 years. Ultra and Ultra Plus are great in medium depth wrinkles and folds such as the depression from nose to corner of mouth (nasalabial folds) and from mouth to chin (marionette lines).
The Restylane® family of fillers features Restylane® Lyft to restore lost cheek or jawline volume or fill deeper lines. It is particularly helpful in treating male patients with thicker skin. Other members of this family treat lines, wrinkles, and other concerns, including Restylane L and the popular lip filler Restylane® Kysse.
The RHA® line was designed to give a natural correction and enhancement to mobile areas of the face. The RHA Redensity line has transformed the way we treat fine lip lines, and smile lines on the cheeks. Its finesse and smooth result have made it one of the most popular fillers in our practice. RHA 2 and RHA3 are great for slightly less fine fine lines and also for natural lip enhancement. RHA4 enhances cheeks and jawline in a soft, natural way.
What Results Will I See With Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler results are usually visible immediately, although they will improve over the next few days. Most hyaluronic acid fillers last between one and two years. Lip fillers are usually the shortest-lasting, while cheek and jawline fillers typically last the longest. Help your results last longer with quality skincare products and avoidance of sun exposure.
