Dermal fillers can subtly enhance the features and temporarily reverse some of the most common sides of aging, including the development of hollow areas, facial folds, lines, and wrinkles. At Knox Wellness Experience in Knoxville, TN, we offer several of the most popular and effective fillers to improve facial aesthetics and reverse aging. The right combination of fillers may be exactly what you need to accomplish what your anti-aging products cannot.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables specifically designed to improve the appearance. They can augment the lips, enhance features, correct facial proportions, and reverse the common signs of aging. We offer three primary types of fillers, hyaluronic acid-based gel fillers, biostimulators, and PRF injections. Biostimulators contain active ingredients that force the body to respond to their presence beneath the skin with increased collagen production.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers use a gel that contains synthetic hyaluronic acid particles, similar to what the body naturally produces, to immediately inject volume into different areas to enhance, augment, fill, and plump. PRF injections use the natural healing and regenerative properties of your blood to increase volume and combat aging.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many benefits to beginning a treatment plan with dermal fillers. These products can do what many topical solutions cannot and enable patients to enjoy their ideal results for a significant amount of time. Some of the other treatment benefits include the following:
- Results look natural
- Results are long-lasting
- Treatment times are quick and convenient
- Treatments are versatile and customizable
- Injectables are FDA-approved as safe for use in multiple facial areas
The JUVÉDERM® Collection
The JUVÉDERM® Collection includes six different fillers that can treat different areas of the face. These products contain lidocaine to enhance comfort during the injection process and post-treatment.
JUVÉDERM® fillers can enhance the lips, augment the cheeks, improve the aesthetics of the chin, fill hollow areas, contour the jawline, and smooth lines and wrinkles that form on the lower and middle half of the face. Patients typically need treatments every one to two years to maintain results, and treatments can take less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is a cheek filler from this collection that can add volume to contour the cheeks and lift the area. After an initial treatment, results can last up to two years. We can also use this filler to augment the chin profile to improve facial proportions and aesthetics. When injected into the chin, results last up to one year.
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC is a filler that can smooth lines that form around the mouth, including laugh lines of different severities. Results can last up to 18 months post-treatment.
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is a filler made with a thicker formula specifically designed for patients with the more advanced signs of aging, including deep lines around the nose and mouth. Post-treatment, results can last up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC can augment lips to reverse aging or increase natural-looking volume. After an initial treatment, results last up to one year.
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC
JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC is another filler that can add volume to the lips and smooth lines around the mouth. After an initial treatment, results can last up to one year.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC is a filler from the JUVÉDERM® collection that can contour the jawline by creating a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced jawline for those who want a more sculpted appearance. Results typically last one year after treatment.
RADIESSE® is a collagen-stimulating filler and biostimulator and contains an active ingredient called CaHA that stimulates the body to produce increased collagen at the treatment sites. We can use this biostimulator to force your body to increase collagen production and produce its natural filler in different areas of the lower and middle half of the face, including areas where smile lines form and run from the outer corner of the nose to the lower part of the mouth.
We can also use it to treat pre-jowl folds, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. RADIESSE® can also restore a youthful appearance to the backs of the hand and contour the jawline naturally.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is designed to smooth wrinkles and facial folds that form on the lower and middle half of the face. We can use it to smooth nasolabial folds, chin, wrinkles, smile lines, and even lip lines that form above the mouth. Treatments deliver immediate results and typically last six months or longer based on the injection areas.
PRF injections provide an alternative treatment option for patients not ready to commit to dermal fillers to achieve their ideal appearance. However, they can also be combined with dermal fillers to promote anti-aging results. PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin and is derived from the blood through a standard pre-treatment blood draw.
How It Works
PRF contains growth factors and regenerative qualities released after treatment to increase collagen production, renew the skin, fight natural aging, and promote cellular renewal and regeneration. This natural filler can be used as a preventative treatment and as a prescriptive one to address visible aging in different facial areas.
After an initial treatment, it can take several weeks to see the treatment effects as the body produces increased collagen at the treatment sites in response to the platelet-rich fibrin injections. Results can last months to years, and regular treatments can extend those results long-term.
