As we age, we experience loss of volume in our face and lips, which often leads to fine lines around the mouth. Thousands of men and women have discovered how dermal fillers can immediately restore lost volume with a single in-office visit. Dermal fillers can last between six months and two years, depending on the type of filler you get and the area being treated.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, all of our fillers are designed to improve your body’s natural collagen production. We’ll work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Are My Options?
Dermal fillers generally contain similar active ingredients, and all aim to treat the signs of aging. This does not mean they’re all the same. Each filler is formulated to work better for specific concerns on certain areas of your face. For example, your lips (which have more repetitive movements) require a different filler than your cheeks.
Derma-Tech offers a variety of injectables to meet your individual needs. Whichever filler you choose, you’ll need to maintain your results with follow-up injections.
Juvederm XC is a collection of FDA-approved fillers that minimize fine lines and wrinkles by adding volume. Each filler contains a different consistency of hyaluronic acid gel, which allows it to be used for lip augmentation or adding volume to cheeks.
Patients see optimal results in 1-2 weeks, once the swelling has decreased, though it may be visible immediately in some. Juvederm XC fillers can last from six months to two years, depending on your body’s metabolism.
Formulated with a naturally occurring substance found in your bones, Radiesse® is typically used for deeper lines and wrinkles, especially around the mouth. This popular FDA-approved anti-aging injection has shown results lasting from 12-18 months.
Restylane® is a collection of fillers best used for treating moderate to severe marionette lines and nasolabial folds (the lines around your mouth and nose). Optimal results can be experienced in as little as three days after your injection, and last for 6-12 months.Patients with good overall health may enjoy their results for more than one year.
