When it comes to facial rejuvenation, dermal fillers are an excellent option because of their natural-looking results, quick and easy treatment, and without hassle or downtime.
Pure Plastic Surgery offers two different types of fillers: the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers and Revanesse® Versa™. Both are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a complex sugar naturally found in your skin which helps retain moisture and suppleness. With long-lasting results, hyaluronic acid fillers can be a great way to restore volume and fill in areas where signs of aging have set in.
Patients who can benefit most from JUVÉDERM® or Versa are those looking for non-surgical options to treat the beginning signs of aging. JUVÉDERM® is FDA-approved for cosmetic use in areas like the nasolabial folds, glabella, crow’s feet, and lips. Often, aging in these areas can make you look older than you feel.
Versa™ injections are a new way to treat wrinkles and fine lines. This specific type of treatment can be successfully used for severe facial wrinkles that include nasolabial folds.
In many cases, patients can benefit from neurotoxins like BOTOX® Cosmetic as part of their treatment plan. It’s important to have realistic expectations for what non-surgical treatments can achieve, so our team can recommend your best options for treatment during a consultation.
Dermal filler treatments can be administered right at our Miami office. Every patient has different levels of tolerance, so we can supply a topical anesthetic so that you’re comfortable. Then, the product is carefully placed with a fine needle under the skin in your treatment areas. This requires a careful approach with multiple injections to get natural-looking results. You’ll see your results immediately and can return home once you’re satisfied.
Your results from JUVÉDERM® or Versa™ can last anywhere from six months to one year, although this can depend on factors like your treatment area. If you opt for treatment in areas of high mobility (like the mouth), the product can metabolize faster. Once you notice your results beginning to fade, you can return to our office for re-treatment.
There’s no recovery time necessary after dermal filler treatments, although you’ll experience some minor redness and swelling after each treatment session. However, Versa™ injectables cause 24% less swelling than other dermal fillers which makes post-treatment results quick and accurate. Any swelling you do experience can be easily managed with ice packs, over-the-counter painkillers, and cosmetics. After your injection session, you can return to your normal schedule.
