Facial Fillers

What are Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers, also called dermal fillers, are gel-like substances that are injected underneath the skin to help smooth lines, restore lost volume, and enhance facial contours. At Plastic Surgery Associates, we carry a selection of dermal fillers to address a variety of concerns, including:

Juvéderm® XC

Juvéderm® XC is designed to lift, firm, and hydrate using hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, giving skin a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. It allows clients to achieve natural-looking results – not an “overdone,” “over-treated” appearance. This treatment can be used on the face and lips to help skin look healthier, more beautiful, and more youthful.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is the first filler proven to last up to 1 year in the lips for lip augmentation and to smooth fine lines around the mouth and nose.

Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC

Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC is specifically designed to naturally enhance the mid-facial region. Due to diminishing collagen as we age, some people may notice a “hollow” appearance to their cheeks. This filler is also great for contouring the chin area for improved facial balance.

Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC

Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is the first and only filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year.

Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC

Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC is the first and only dermal filler proven to last up to 18 months and corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Who can Benefit from Facial Fillers?

Healthy adults who are interested in smoothing out lines around their nose and mouth, restoring volume to the mid-face, or plumping the lips can often benefit from facial fillers. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or those with a history of keloid scarring should not receive this treatment. The best way to determine candidacy is to schedule a consultation appointment at our Grand Rapids office.

The Treatment

During your facial filler treatment, the treatment area will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic may be offered to numb the area before injection. Then, a small needle will be used to inject the chosen filler into the targeted areas. Treatment can last anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the amount of improvement desired.

Facial Filler Recovery

Facial filler results will be noticeable right after treatment and will continue to improve as initial swelling and/or bruising resolve. There is no downtime required, so patients can feel free to return to their regular activities as soon as they wish. However, we do advise that individuals avoid strenuous activity and alcohol consumption for 12-24 hours after treatment to ensure the best results.
