As you age, you may notice unwanted wrinkles or less volume in your face. With injectable dermal fillers you can lift and fill out the skin to create a smoother, more subtle appearance, which reduces wrinkles and helps reshape and enhance your face.
Fillers can be used alone or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. Some fillers are even used to minimize acne or other depressed scars and to augment and reshape your chin, cheeks and lips.
At Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, we offer several kinds of cosmetic dermatology services in our Plymouth, Minneapolis, and Edina, MN locations, including dermal fillers. All are safe, proven effective, and are non–allergenic, so no pretreatment skin tests are necessary. Our licensed medical staff will evaluate your needs and discuss with you which filler is right for you. Our fillers include:
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA/JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS: These products consist of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your body. JUVÉDERM® Ultra is used for fine lines and wrinkles, while JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is used for deeper folds and wrinkles.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: This is another hyaluronic acid injectable facial filler. It temporarily restores volume to your mid-face to fill out wrinkles around your nose and on your cheeks.
- JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC: This is the newest addition to the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance. It is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, lasting up to 18 months with optimal treatment.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: This filler stimulates your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure, so wrinkles are less noticeable and hollowed cheeks or temples are recontoured to their former volume.
Dermal filler treatments involve injecting the filler into the skin with an ultrafine needle. A topical or local anesthetic is sometimes used to control any discomfort during the injections. You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Mild swelling or redness may linger at the injection site for one to two days.
