Soft Tissue Fillers

As we age, the subtle signs of aging suddenly become not so subtle. What use to be noticeable in a magnifying mirror begins to draw attention on a daily basis. Cheeks descend, dark circles develop under our eyes, the lips lose volume, and the ever dreaded “jowling” redefines our lower face. Fortunately, new and improved natural products such as Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma®, Juvederm Vollure™ and Juvederm Volbella® can quickly provide a robust fill in volume-depleted areas and uplift facial features we never dreamed imaginable. The best part is, fillers are quick, easy, and require little to no down time.

What are Soft Tissue Fillers?

Soft tissue fillers are FDA approved, non-surgical treatments that consist of natural substances that are injected or implanted into creases, furrows and sunken areas of the facial skin and soft tissues; creating a plumper, more youthful appearance. The four most common Soft Tissue Fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma®, Juvederm Vollure™ and Juvederm Volbella®); natural building blocks found within your body.

How are Soft Tissue Fillers used?

  • Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma®, Juvederm Vollure™ and Juvederm Volbella® are a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in small amounts leading to immediate volume replacement and refined cosmetic results.

Advanced Soft Tissue Filler treatments take 10- 20 minutes dependent upon the number of areas being treated. Once we have assured your comfort, the selected filler is gently placed within the volume depleted areas, leaving you with an instant, youthful fill. Volume placement is followed by gentle massage, making the end result both soft and natural in appearance. Often, local anesthetic solutions are use before and during the treatment to improve your comfort. Throughout the process, rest assured you will feel confident and well informed about your treatment.
