JUVÉDERM® and Other Injectables in the Minneapolis Area
Dermal fillers are an excellent way to minimize wrinkles, improve your facial structure, and enhance facial features like the lips and cheeks. As you age, you may notice unwanted wrinkles, or perhaps less volume in your face, because your skin is less supple and firm than it used to be. With fillers like JUVÉDERM®, you can lift and help fill out the skin to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers from our Minneapolis-area Zel Skin injectors can not only soften wrinkles, but also reshape and enhance your facial contours.

Which Dermal Fillers Are Available at Zel Skin?
The dermal fillers we offer include:
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA/ULTRA PLUS: The JUVÉDERM® line of dermal fillers utilizes hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the body that keeps skin hydrated. These are soft gels that work by adding volume to lift the skin and fill in moderate to severe creases. JUVÉDERM® Ultra is best suited for fine lines and wrinkles, while JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is used for deeper folds and wrinkles.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: These dermal fillers contain poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production process to help restore its inner structure. Wrinkles gradually become less noticeable, and hollowed cheeks and temples are re-contoured to a more youthful shape and volume.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers improve always-visible static wrinkles that are usually located on the middle and lower part of the face, and sometimes on the neck and chest. These types of wrinkles are different from dynamic wrinkles, which are related to facial expressions and better addressed with a muscle relaxer, like BOTOX®.
Static wrinkles form due to the effects of gravity, skin losing collagen and elastin over time, unhealthy habits, dehydration, and skin fibers being damaged by prolonged sun exposure.
JUVÉDERM® and other soft tissue fillers are effective for treating lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and chin area. Fillers can also be used to minimize acne scars or other, recessed icepick or pitted scars, and to augment and reshape the chin, cheeks, and lips. Some of the most common conditions to be treated include:
- Marionette Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
- Vertical Lip Lines
- Chin Creases
- Sunken Cheeks
- Thinning Lips
- Contour Deformities
What to Expect from Your Dermal Filler Treatment
JUVÉDERM® and Sculptra® are injected directly into the skin with an ultra-fine needle. Typically, your aesthetician will use a topical or local anesthetic to control potential discomfort. This is a quick, straightforward procedure, and after getting dermal fillers, patients can return to normal activities right away, without a lengthy recovery time. Mild swelling and redness may linger at the injection site for a few days. Sculptra® effects can last for up to two years, while JUVÉDERM® filler effects can last between six and 12 months.
Beyond Dermal Fillers: Other Anti-Aging Options
Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® can be used alone, but they can also be used in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures to maximize results. These include laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels, both of which exfoliate the skin to create a smooth, even texture, as well as BOTOX® for expression lines.
JUVÉDERM® is part of our Alle® rewards program, which allows patients to save on select Allergan treatments, like KYBELLA® and LATISSE®. Patients earn points on the day of their JUVÉDERM® treatment to redeem for future visits.
