Confused about Filler? Not sure if you need it or what it is? Whereas Botox relaxes wrinkles, filler also known as Juvéderm can add volume to your lips and conceal folds and creases. Juvéderm is a newer injectable that is composed mostly of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already found in our bodies. For those that aren’t ready for the risks and costs associated with plastic surgery, Juvéderm is temporary. Results can last up to a year and the filler is then re-absorbed into the body. Juvéderm can also treat the creases by the corners of the mouth, minor scars, and those annoying vertical lines between the eyebrows. One of the main benefits with filler is the minimal recovery time after the procedure. You can return to normal activities directly after. Some patients do experience minor swelling and very rarely bruising. At DermaCosmedica you’ll receive a complimentary consultation in which Dr. Guarino will analyze your facial features and determine where filler should be placed. Juvéderm is sold by the syringe and most, if not all patients usually only need one. Contact us for more information or to set up your free consultation with Dr. Guarino.
