Dermal Fillers in Pittsburgh & Wexford, PA

With aging, the amount of fat in the face begins to dissipate. This natural occurrence can lead to sunken areas on the face or sagging skin that makes people appear older than they are. Men and women in the Pittsburgh, PA or Wexford, PA area have discovered dermal fillers, such as VOLUMA® and Juvéderm® to be simple and effective skin treatments. The active ingredient of hyaluronic acid can help you meet your goals without the worry of having an allergic reaction. These versatile products are an effective choice for filling in small, vertical lines around the lips as well as deeper nasolabial folds. They can also be used for enhancing facial features, such as sculpting the cheeks and chin and adding volume to lips.

VOLUMA®

VOLUMA® is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the midface and cheek area. It provides a subtle, natural enhancement that can last for up to two years.

How It Works

VOLUMA® consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the skin. It is injected deep beneath the skin to offer greater support and structure to the overlying skin. Injecting VOLUMA® into these deep layers can create a noticeably smoother appearance while also providing lift and more substantial definition to the facial structure.

VOLUMA® has very low hydrophilic properties, so it has a low rate of water absorption. These low water absorbing properties are a critical feature to its success because the gel will not expand after injection. This allows for controlled, precise results.

Is VOLUMA Right for Me?

Whether you were born with cheekbones you love that have diminished over time, or if you want to have the cheek bones and definition you’ve never had and always wanted, VOLUMA® can provide a solution.

VOLUMA® is safe, affordable, and non-invasive; it is intended for a wide-range of clients who want to achieve midface volume or more prominent, sculpted cheekbones. Both men and women can get immediate satisfaction. If you have blotches that also compromise your beauty or debonair, you can also consider our acne scar treatment.

Treatment

Administering the injections typically takes between 15-30 minutes. Once complete, results can be seen immediately. Unlike surgical options, VOLUMA® has no downtime. This means patients are free to resume their normal daily life the moment they walk out of our office in Wexford, PA or Pittsburgh, PA.

The most common side effects are mild. Common symptoms during the recovery process include:

  • Irritation
  • Swelling
  • Redness at the injection site

Results

A VOLUMA® treatment is a volume-filler that will make your skin look naturally years younger. This filler is injected into the skin and instantly acts as a cheek filler and a wrinkle filler. Results you can expect from a VOLUMA® treatment include:

  • Creating contour
  • An instant, subtle lift
  • A more youthful profile
  • Lasts up to two years

Juvéderm® XC

Young, healthy looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. As you age, time, sunlight, and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin, causing it to lose structure and volume. The result is unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Juvéderm® boosts your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid and contains lidocaine, which is a common anesthetic that provides a more comfortable experience during and after this wrinkle treatment.

How It Works

Juvéderm® combines with the natural proteins and hormones in your skin to erase fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves the appearance of scars by restoring the skin’s natural elasticity. Unlike Botox, which uses a paralytic to smooth out the skin, Juvéderm® works from within the skin, triggering the production of collagen and elastin to fill in those lines and scars with new, healthy skin.

Treatment

Patients are advised to stop taking anti-inflammatory medications or aspirin 1–3 days prior to a treatment. If you wear makeup, you should not wear any to your Juvéderm® appointment; however, you will be able to maintain your skin care and makeup routine after your treatment is complete. Though there is no pretreatment allergy testing required for patients who undergo injections, those with a history of severe allergies may not be considered suitable Juvéderm® candidates.

Juvéderm® arrives at your doctor’s office near Morgantown, West Virginia packed in a sterile, ready-to-use syringe. The smooth gel consistency of Juvéderm® makes it more comfortable for patients to receive injections than it is for them with other dermal fillers. This is because doctors can use thinner needles and less pressure during injections. To minimize the chance of discomfort, a physician might numb the area of the face by treating them with a topical anesthetic cream before administering the Juvéderm® injections. Juvéderm® is injected into the mid-to-deep dermis, depending on the amount of correction required. The typical treatment session is about 20 minutes long.

Results

After treatment, it is best not to unnecessarily touch or massage the treated area for a few days, though normal makeup routines may be continued. Patients who have treatments are also advised to avoid unnecessary exposure to heat, cold, and sun for up to two weeks following their injections. After treatment, it is important to wear sunscreen and to avoid using any products that contain alcohol on the face.

Over time, the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® is naturally absorbed into the body. The average patient  near Upper Saint Clair, PA enjoys the results of a Juvéderm® treatment for six to nine months, though some patients have had results last for as long as a year.

VOLBELLA

Juvederm® VOLBELLA with Lidocaine was created specifically to define the mouth and lip area. Developed as a smooth gel, VOLBELLA was formulated via VYCROSS technology, providing the lips a soft, natural feel.

 

How It Works

VOLBELLA’s smooth gel is injected into the lip and mouth area with an ultra-fine needle. Made from hyaluronic acid and using the unique Vycross technology, this filler tends to be less hydrophilic than other lip fillers. While the gel fills in the wrinkles and fine lines, the hyaluronic acid retains moisture, reducing the amount of swelling. The superfine needles used for injection cut down on bruising and, therefore, recovery time.

Premier Plastic Surgery and Acqua  Blu Medical Spa has earned the honor of being an Allergan Diamond Provider. This prestigious status is awarded to the top 1% of physicians with the highest degree of expertise in administering the famous family of Allergan anti-aging products, which includes Botox®, Kybella® and the entire Juvederm Dermal Filler Collection, as well as Allergan Naturelle® breast implants.

It has an excellent safety profile and a built-in painkilling anesthetic, allowing for a practically painless procedure.

Treatment
