Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injected under your skin, where they add volume that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, lifts cheeks, and enhances lips. The injections work by replacing facial volume that’s lost as the thin layer of fat below your skin thins out over time.

Dr. Salkinder uses two types of dermal fillers, Juvéderm®, and Restylane®. Both products contain hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced in your skin. Hyaluronic acid hydrates and creates a cushion under your skin. After it’s injected, it may also stimulate collagen production.

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers. They all contain hyaluronic acid as the primary ingredient, but some are formulated a little differently to treat specific problem areas. For example, some are thicker than others.

These are two examples of Juvéderm products available at Miracle Mile Aesthetics & ENT:

Juvéderm® XC

Juvéderm XC is formulated to reduce moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds around your mouth. Dr. Salkinder uses it to treat:

  • Corner lines (at each side of your lips)
  • Parentheses lines (run from your nose to the corners of your mouth)
  • Marionette lines (run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin)

As Juvéderm XC adds volume, it effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth for up to one year.*

Juvéderm Voluma® XC

This Juvéderm product is uniquely formulated to treat your cheeks. After it’s injected, it restores volume and gives your cheeks a natural lift. Your results following an injection of Juvéderm Voluma XC may last up to two years.*

What is Restylane®?

Restylane is another group of dermal fillers that includes:

  • Restylane® corrects severe wrinkles and folds and enhances lips
  • Restylane® Silk augments lips and smooths wrinkles around your mouth
  • Restylane® Lyft adds volume and lift to cheeks and treats facial folds
  • Restylane® Refyne reduces lines around your mouth
  • Restylane®Defyne reduces deeper wrinkles and folds around your mouth

The Restylane products are formulated with different-sized particles to produce the degree of volume needed for the problem they target, such as small particles for plumping fine lines and larger particles to treat deeper wrinkles.
