How Dermal Fillers Can Help Improve Your Skin (& Your Look)

As we age, the formation of fine lines and deep wrinkles can be expected, however it is not something that you have to live with if you do not like it! This is where fillers come in. There are a variety of brands on the market today, designed to target specific areas and provide certain results. At Dermatology Center of Acadiana, we are proud to carry fillers such as: Juvederm, Voluma, Vollure, and Radiesse. Read on to see how these fillers can help you improve the appearance of problem areas.


Dermal Fillers can Help Make Plump Lips and Cheeks

As our bodies’ age and gravity begins to take toll, it’s common for the cheeks to begin to sag and lose fullness. This mid-face volume loss in the cheeks is what causes much of the “aged” look. Juvederm Voluma is a filler that is specially formulated to add volume to the cheeks and help to correct age-related volume loss for a more youthful appearance.

The lips also begin to thin as we age, in part due to collagen production slowing down as we grow older. Aside from keeping them hydrated and protected with a lip balm with sunscreen, fillers are a great way to help improve and plump the lips. To find out which filler may be best to plump and smooth your lips, contact Dermatology Center of Acadiana today.


Dermal Fillers can Help Smooth Wrinkles Around the Nose and Mouth

The aging process, genetics, smoking and environmental factors can all lead to lines around the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds, or more commonly as “laugh lines”. For correction in this area, we often turn to an injectable such as Juvederm Vollure. This injectable filler is a gel that utilizes VYCROSS® technology to soften and smooth for up to 18 months. Not just for women, men can also see many benefits from the use of fillers around the nose and mouth. Read more about fillers can help improve the appearance of men’s skin.


Dermal Fillers can Rejuvenate the Hands

Many fail to realize the effect that aging takes on our hands, yet it is often one of the first places that signs of aging begin to appear. Years of sun exposure and neglect to this area can leave them in need of rejuvenation. Additionally, the aging process itself causes hands to lose their youthful fullness and take on a more crepey texture, and causes veins in this area to show more prominently. Fillers are a wonderful option to help plump and smooth this area, with an end result of more youthful hands that do not give away your age.


Hydrate the Skin with Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body, but production declines as we age. It acts as a magnet for moisture, which in turn aids the skin in appearing plump, smooth and hydrated. A number of fillers on the market today contain this important ingredient for radiant skin. At Dermatology Center of Acadiana, we offer the Juvederm family of fillers, named the #1 best selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Through April 30, we are offering $100 off of your choice of filler, making it a great time to hydrate your skin and smooth out fine lines.


Results with Little to No Downtime

While all cosmetic procedures have their own benefits, one of the best things about fillers is the immediate results with little to no downtime. Many individuals resume work or other activities the same day! You are left with smoother skin, decreased fine lines, and results you can see without disrupting your daily life.
