We offer a variety of dermal fillers to meet our patients’ individual needs. Dermal fillers are injected in tiny amounts into the skin using a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces long-lasting, natural enhancement. Dermal fillers typically last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the product, and they are very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds, and other areas.
Dermal fillers are also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. While they not permanent, they provide the option of changing your treatment plan in tune with changing taste and fashion, and we can easily adjust the type and amount of filler we use as natural aging progresses.
With all fillers, a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon is necessary to discuss the options and to determine which areas are best suited for treatment. Find out more about the dermal fillers we offer below!
Juvéderm® Collection of Fillers
Whether you want to smooth lines around the nose and mouth, enhance cheek volume, or plump your lips, there’s a Juvéderm filler to meet your needs. Juvéderm fillers are soft, smooth gels made from hyaluronic acid, a natural component of firm, youthful, and hydrated skin. Juvéderm injections restore youthful volume under the skin to smooth out creases and enhance facial features.
We offer the full collection of Juvéderm fillers at PSCHR, including Voluma XC, Vollure XC, and Volbella XC, as well as the classics Juvéderm & Juvéderm Ultra. These fillers are excellent options to:
- Smooth nasolabial folds
- Lift & enhance the cheeks
- Restore volume to the midface
- Minimize smile lines, marionette lines, and parentheses
- Fill indented scars
- Enhance lip volume and definition
- Smooth vertical lip lines
Treatment takes about 15 minutes or less. You should experience little-to-no discomfort and can resume your normal activities as soon as you’re done; just avoid direct sunlight and contact with the injection sites for 24 hours. Results gradually appear over the course of a few days and can last 6 to 24 months.
Restylane fillers are another popular hyaluronic acid dermal filler option for our Hampton Roads patients. Offering five different formulas, each designed to excel at treating specific visible signs of aging, we can easily select a Restylane filler to match your needs and goals and ensure natural results.
The Restylane collection includes:
- Restylane Silk for fine lip lines and lip enhancement
- Restylane Lyft for restoring volume to the cheeks and mid-face and for hand rejuvenation
- Restylane Refyne and Defyne to smooth lines around the nose and mouth without interfering with normal facial expressions
- Classic Restylane to soften nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles
Restylane injections are quick and relatively painless with the help of a topical numbing agent. Results are apparent within a day or two and settle in fully over the course of 2 weeks. Depending on the formula, results can last 6 to 12 months or longer.
If you’re concerned with severe wrinkles and deep folds around your nose and mouth, jawline, and chin, Radiesse may be a good option for you. Over the years, important support structures in your skin, such as collagen and elastin, diminish, resulting in a decrease in suppleness and the development of wrinkles.
Radiesse works by both restoring lost volume in the treatment area and stimulating your body’s collagen production. This effectively smooths out wrinkles and improves elasticity to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and pre-jowl folds. Radiesse is also FDA approved for hand rejuvenation, helping to smooth prominent veins and tendons with beautifully natural results.
After treatment, your results should gradually appear over the course of a few days and can last for up to a full year.
