Belotero®

Belotero Danville CABelotero is the latest, most advanced form of dermal filler available today. It has a unique ability to integrate with the tissues of your skin, providing volume and a more youthful shape to your face. Belotero can reduce lines and wrinkles while enhancing your own facial contours.

As we get older, our skin’s production of the substances that keep it moisturized and supple begins to slow, resulting in an increase in wrinkles and lines. But Belotero is a dermal filler that incorporates one of these natural substances, hyaluronic acid (HA), to help you achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin once again.

In clinical studies of Belotero, 97 percent of patients showed a visible improvement after a single treatment. Belotero can eliminate even the finest of lines. Belotero injections plump the skin subtly and evenly so patients appear relaxed and refreshed without looking like they have a noticeable implant.

There are different formulations of Belotero available, making it ideal to improve a wide variety of skin issues. This filler can treat frown lines between the eyebrows, periorbital lines (crow’s feet), nasolabial folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth, perioral lines and marionette lines from the corners of the mouth to the jaw. In addition, it can round the cheekbones, plump the lips, restore softness to the hands and décolletage and more.

The quick and nearly painless procedure typically takes 20 minutes and most people can return to work immediately afterward. The results of Belotero treatment are not permanent and vary by individual. For most patients, the effects are still visible nine months after an injection. Follow-up treatments are typically done every six to 12 months.

Juvéderm® Injectable Gel

Juvederm Danville CA

Juvéderm Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration.

Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus use a more advanced, cross-linked formula for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles or folds in the mid- to deep dermis.

What are the benefits of Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a safe, effective, non-surgical option for those that want to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency that, unlike most hyaluronic acid fillers, which have granular consistencies, allows for easy injection and instantly natural results.

Juvéderm Ultra allows for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm Ultra Plus is for correcting deeper and more severe wrinkles and folds. This allows for a completely personalized treatment tailored by your healthcare professionals to meet your needs. The results make you look naturally younger, refreshed and can last up to one year. Juvéderm is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color.

Procedure & Recovery Time

The injection itself usually takes approximately 15 minutes.

Although anesthesia is not required, your doctor may use a topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area. Juvéderm Injectable Gel will be injected under your skin to add volume or fill wrinkles and folds. After the injection, your doctor may gently massage the treated areas.

There is minimal recovery time with Juvéderm. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites.

Some temporary symptoms, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps may occur but usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period. Your healthcare provider will tell you when makeup may be applied after your treatment.

What are the results?

Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas and only need one treatment to achieve optimal results. Results may vary and touch up treatments may be required to maintain results, but Juvéderm can smooth lines and wrinkles for up to a year.

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC

Juvederm Danville CAJuvéderm Voluma™ is a new,  FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around  the cheeks and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a  subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition  that occur over time. Juvéderm Voluma can help restore more youthful contours  by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging  process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has  set in.

Juvéderm Voluma is not only an effective treatment method,  but it is long lasting as well. In many patients, the results will last for a  period of up to 18 months.

The active ingredient in Juvéderm Voluma is hyaluronic acid (HA),  which is a substance naturally produced within the skin. As we get older, the  levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, resulting in a loss of  volume and sunken or sagging cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma integrates into the  existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and  elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming to the skin and  lend the facial structure more substantial definition.

Juvéderm Voluma is the latest in the Juvéderm line of dermal  fillers.  These various formulas have a  successful history of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin  and rejuvenating the face.

Good Candidates for Juvéderm Voluma Treatment

Adults of any age who notice changes to their mid-face or at  the chin or jaw line may be considered good candidates for treatment with  Juvéderm Voluma. Typical early signs of aging may include a visible decrease in  volume, a sagging of the cheeks or the loss of noticeable contour around the  chin. While these are more commonly problems that people face as they age,  younger men and women may experience them as well due to weight loss, heredity  or a number of other factors.

The Juvéderm Voluma Procedure

Juvéderm Voluma injections typically take about 15 minutes  to administer in the doctor’s office. The gel formula contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort, so there is no need for additional anesthesia.  The injection is designed to reach the deep  layers beneath the skin’s surface to provide the most benefit.

The results are visible immediately after the  procedure.  There is very little or no downtime  required following a treatment with Juvéderm Voluma.  Most patients can resume all of their typical  daily activities right away after their treatment session.
