A Guide to Allergan Fillers
With age comes change. While you likely appreciate your growing supply of wisdom, you might be less than thrilled by the physical appearance of aging – especially if it starts early. Don’t worry. You’re not alone, and there is a solution. An Allergan filler can significantly turn back the clock, reducing the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles. Allergan fillers can also augment areas prone to volume loss, such as the cheeks and lips.
5 Allergan Fillers of Choice
Allergan fillers are specifically engineered dermal fillers. They are designed to address specific patient concerns – including age-related volume loss in the cheek area and lip fullness – without invasive surgery.
At Dermacare of Hampton Roads, we trust five Allergan fillers.
#1: Juvederm Ultra
The Juvederm Ultra filler is preferred for the treatment of softer facial lines and folds. It’s used around the mouth and lips and is good for lip augmentation and treating smile lines. Results typically last for 6-12 months.
#2: Juvederm Ultra Plus
The Juvederm Ultra Plus filler is a step above the Juvederm Ultra filler. It’s more potent and best for treating more moderate to severe lines and folds. Parenthesis and marionette lines can be reduced with Juvederm Ultra Plus. For most people, the results will last for about one year.
The Vollure filler is best for both fines and deep folds. It’s often recommended for parenthesis lines, marionette lines, and volume loss. It’s a great choice for treating cheek hollows. Results generally last for up to 18 months.
The Volbella filler is the preferred filler for achieving soft, natural-looking lip augmentation. It’s great for treating fine lines, smoker’s lines around the mouth, and under eye hollows. Results typically last for up to one year.
The Voluma filler is good for contour and lift augmentation. It’s often used in the cheeks and jaw line. Results can last up to two years after treatment.
You can expect some swelling after your treatment regardless of the type of Allergan filler used, but don’t worry. It’s temporary. Allergan fillers are safe and effective. We’ll be available to answer all of your questions before, during, and after your procedure.
The risks and side effects associated with these fillers are minimal. Swelling and tenderness following treatment are the most common side effects. Some patients experience mild pain, bruising, redness, discoloration, lumps or bumps, firmness, and itching.
As is the case with any injectable, there is some risk of infection if the injection site is improperly cared for after the procedure. Our team will help you prep for at-home care post-procedure.
