Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma XC® and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC™® are safe non-allergenic substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars or gently lift and enhance structure adding contour. These are referred to as “Volumizers”. These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid – a gel consistency, that hydrates readily with water – and looks beautiful in the skin when injected by a skilled physician. Dr. Ode Young strives to use these treatments in order to compliment your natural features. Juvederm Voluma XC® will aid in lifting lax skin and restoring contour to the cheek area providing a more youthful appearance. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is great for adding volume to the lip and cheek area, as well as other areas with deep lines and folds.
Because of dermal filler’s safe ingredients, they require no pre-testing, but it’s a good idea to avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, St. John’s Wort, and high doses of Vitamin E prior to treatment because these may increase the likelihood of light bleeding and bruising at the injection site.
Makeup may be applied immediately after dermal filler injection.
