Dermal Fillers Q&A

by Patricia Faraz-Eslami, MD

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that add volume to the face. These fillers can add volume where it has decreased over time, or can add increased volume and definition to areas that have never had enough volume. The type of dermal filler chosen for a procedure depends on the treatment area and the patient's specific needs.

What is Voluma XC?

Voluma XC is made by the Juvederm company. This formula is specially created for use in the middle of the face, particularly in the cheek area. When people age, it is often common to see a decrease in natural collagen and hyaluronic acid. This can leave a person with sunken-looking cheeks, a problem which Voluma XC can remedy beautifully. Voluma XC typically lasts for 12 to 18 months, but it can last as much as 2 years. The injection process is fast and easy. Patients can return to their regular routine right away.

What is Juvederm Ultra Plus?

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a dermal filler that can be used to fill in folds and wrinkles in the face, and it may also be used to add volume to thin lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC generally lasts for around a year, although it can last longer in some patients. The injection process is quick and easy. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately after treatment.

What is Juvederm XC?

Juvederm XC is used for mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles. It is also used in the lips for some patients. Juvederm XC lasts for around 6 months to a year in most patients. Injection is quick and easy, and patients can go back to work or their usual routine immediately after the treatment.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is different from Juvederm products because it's calcium based rather than hyaluronic acid based. Radiesse is best for the areas on the face that develop deep folds, such as the nasolabial folds. This product is not approved for use in the lips. Radiesse generally lasts for 12 to 18 months, and even longer in some patients.
