Facial fillers like Juvederm are FDA-approved injectable products that are designed to address a variety of common aesthetic facial flaws like folds, wrinkles, and fine lines. Facial fillers add volume to smooth out the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and folds. At JL Plastic Surgery we offer non-surgical facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers for our patients in Boston.
Fillers are a gel that is most commonly made of hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in your body and is broken down over time. Fillers can be used to both reverse some of the signs of aging or to augment certain parts of the face.
Although many companies make hyaluronic acid-based fillers, one of the most common brands is Juvederm. Each of these fillers come in a variety of thicknesses and the best product to use depends on what part of your body/face the filler will be injected.
Facial fillers are a safe and effective option for treating a wide variety of aesthetic facial issues. Facial Fillers can be used to treat:
- Nasolabial folds
- Thin lips
- Cheek Sagging
- Poor chin definition
- Nose reshaping
- Jawline contouring
During your consultation, we will perform a full facial analysis and recommend the best place to add filler. While there are many areas that filler work well, the most common areas include the cheeks, nasolabial folds, chin, and around the mouth.
In addition to anti-aging concerns, other common uses for filler are to enhance their facial features. While every patient is different, the most commonly requested procedures are nonsurgical rhinoplasty, nonsurgical chin augmentation, and/or lip augmentation. We will perform a facial analysis and determine if you would be a good candidate for facial filler.
Recovery and Results
Facial filler typically takes 20-40 minutes depending on how much filler is being injected. Recovery is relatively easy. We recommend avoiding makeup and strenuous activity for the rest of the day. Swelling and bruising can occur but typically subside in a few days.
Facial fillers provide long-lasting and natural-looking results. The exact length of the results provided by facial filler injections will vary based on the type of filler used and other factors. On average, facial fillers can provide results that last 6-12 months (lips tend to last 2-3 months).
The cost of your dermal filler injections in Boston will be based on the number of areas being treated and the amount of product needed to properly treat the aesthetic issues in those areas.
