During the aging process, your face naturally begins to lose the layer of fat directly under the skin. The loss of this subcutaneous fat---combined with other factors like heredity, exposure to the sun, lifestyle, and facial stretching--makes crow's feet, smile lines, and other wrinkles more apparent. The result is that your face shows your age in unmistakable ways. Fortunately, treatment options are available and fillers are a popular choice. Ogden Clinic Bountiful offers fillers like Juvederm, Voluma, and Restylane in our dermatology office. Learn more about these services below.
How Fillers Can Help
Dermal fillers can provide you with an enhanced appearance by softening wrinkles and creases, plumping thinning lips, reconstructing facial contouring deformities, and much more. Patients looking for a way to halt the signs of early aging, as well as those seeking surgery for facial rejuvenation, can benefit from these fillers. For your convenience, we offer the following dermal fillers:
Juvéderm is an injectable filler that is approved by the FDA. Versatile and used for a number of facial areas including the lips and cheeks, as well as the hands. Juvéderm is made of a substance that occurs naturally in the skin, hyaluronic acid and is used primarily to fill in tiny lines, scars, pits, and crevices
Voluma is also made of hyaluronic acid, like Juvéderm, and is also an injectable filler. Voluma is designed as a restorative treatment for adding volume to larger areas of the face. Common places where Voluma is used include the temples or cheeks to address weight loss or unwanted changes in the shape of your face.
Restylane is another injectable filler made of the hyaluronic acid that's already naturally present in your skin. It is typically used to treat facial wrinkles that are termed to be moderate or severe. It might also be used to add volume to your lips, smooth the marionette lines that run from your mouth downward or other uses as determined by our dermatology team.
Which product is Right for My Skin Goals?
Though these fillers are similar in nature, a thorough examination is required in order to choose the right treatment for your particular situation. A consultation with our Ogden Clinic dermatologist in Bountiful is the first step in getting the smooth and wrinkle-free face of your youth back!
