The cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers we offer at our Midland plastic surgery practice can reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, as well as restore lost facial volume for firmer, smoother skin. As we age, our natural collagen can deplete, causing our skin to crease and sag. Sometimes used as a non-invasive facelift alternative, dermal fillers can effectively plump features such as the cheeks or lips for a fuller and more contoured appearance. Some of our patients at Midland Plastic Surgery Center also use dermal fillers to augment their existing features for enhanced definition.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a dermal filler composed of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that can effectively target fine lines and wrinkles near the corners of the mouth as well as the nasolabial folds (smile lines). The ingredients of this dermal filler mimic your natural supply of hyaluronic acid and can hydrate, lift, and firm the skin at the injection sites. In addition to reducing signs of age, JUVÉDERM® XC is often used for lip augmentation. The results of JUVÉDERM® XC typically last at least four to six months.
Also composed of hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM® Ultra can be used to treat marionette lines around the chin in addition to the corners of the mouth and nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM® Ultra can also effectively firm, fill, and smooth the tear trough area beneath the eyes for a more youthful and rested appearance. The added lidocaine in JUVÉDERM® Ultra can increase patient comfort during the treatment process, and results typically last four to six months or longer.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler specifically designed to restore lost facial volume to the cheeks and treat signs of mid-facial aging. With its smooth gel composition, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can achieve exceptionally natural-looking results, lifting the cheeks and enhancing their contours.
