     Dermal fillers are a group of non-toxic substances that are injected under the skin at various depths to smooth out fine lines, deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and acne scars, volumize and define lips, contour the chin and nose, or plump up sunken cheeks or temples for a full, lifted appearance. Lip fillers are becoming more and more popular, and one of the most popular filler products are those in the Juvederm product line. While there are others available the Juvederm products tend to wear the crown because they are 1) great products, and 2) they are made by the same people that make Botox. If you live in the Hattiesburg or Laurel, Mississippi area and are in the market for dermal and lip fillers, come see us! There are a number of Juvederm fillers out there, however I will only be discussing the ones that are offered at Pine Belt Dermatology. I will spend a brief period of time talking about what the specific products are designed to do and how much you can expect to pay at Pine Belt Dermatology.

 

     Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). Some of these products are also used for lip augmentation. Juvederm products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. This plays a role in them being the filler of choice in most individuals. While these are popular fillers, they are not for everyone. Certain allergies may prevent an individual from being able to utilize the fillers. Juvederm should also only be administered under the supervision of a licensed health care practitioner. So, now that the disclaimers are out of the way, what products are offered at PBD?

 

 

     As stated in a previous blog of ours, there has been significant popularity in the use of lip and dermal fillers over recent years. In the past, these, along with other cosmetic products such as Botox, were only used among middle aged adults who began seeing age changes in their facial features. However, the recent increase in utilization can be attributed to many members of the younger generations looking to modify their lips and other facial features to achieve a more voluptuous look. These trends have increased the popularity of lip fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. Luckily, for patients in the Hattiesburg, Mississippi area, Pine Belt Dermatology offers both products. From time to time we do specials on our cosmetics so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so that you don’t miss out!
