How Dermal Fillers Can Give You the Youthful Look You Desire

While Botox® is probably the best known cosmetic injectable because of its ability to smooth certain wrinkles, it can’t do anything to address one of the most obvious signs of aging: volume loss in your face. 

That’s why Adaobi Obasi, MD, and our team of cosmetic dermatology experts offer dermal fillers as part of our injectables program here at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology in Laredo, Texas. Used alone or in tandem with Botox, dermal fillers can help you look your most youthful through the years. 

Are they right for you? Let’s find out. 

Understanding dermal fillers

Here at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology, we offer the Juvéderm® collection of dermal fillers. These fillers consist primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance that already naturally occurs in your skin. By injecting this safe, FDA-approved solution into areas where your face has lost volume, Dr. Obasi can turn back the clock for your appearance. 

We offer different types of Juvéderm fillers to deliver different results:

Juvéderm Volbella™ XC

This dermal filler is specifically designed to plump your lips while supporting the delicate skin that covers them. If your lips have thinned with age, ask Dr. Obasi about this option to restore your youthful pout. 

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC

This dermal filler can restore the contours your face may have lost over the years. It corrects volume loss in your chin and cheeks, helping to minimize jowls and fill in sunken cheeks so you can look your best. 

Juvéderm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC

Are vertical lip lines leaving you looking sterner and older than you’d like? If so, Ultra XC, which restores volume above your lip to smooth those lines, is for you. 

What to expect with dermal fillers

The good news is that turning back the clock for your appearance doesn’t need to take a lot of time out of your day. Once you and Dr. Obasi decide on the right filler and placement for you, the actual injection process takes just minutes. Plus, Juvéderm fillers include lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to keep you comfortable during and after treatment.

In fact, dermal fillers come with almost no downtime. Many of our patients get their fillers on their lunch break, then head immediately back to their day’s activities. 

Another exciting feature of fillers: they last longer than Botox. Many people enjoy the results of their dermal fillers for a year or more after treatment. 

If you’re ready to use dermal fillers to get the youthful look you desire, call our office at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology or schedule your appointment online today.
