DERMAL FILLERS IN GRAND FORKS
Dermal fillers restore volume and are used to correct wrinkles and soft tissue loss due to aging. They are injected into the superficial layers of the skin and are most commonly used in the smile lines, lips and corners of the mouth. Advanced techniques also involve the use of certain fillers around the eyes and cheekbones to restore a more youthful look.
BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLER
Dermal fillers work by using hyaluronic acid to volumize fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This smoothes the skin and texture of the face, providing a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate and can last up to a year. Patients can also visit Premier Aesthetics for touch-up injections to maintain the results and slow the overall effect of aging.
Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with other injectables, including neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) and collagen stimulators (Sculptra and Radiesse). Combining injectables can provide a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the skin and offer patients a wonderful alternative to surgical treatments.
Dermal fillers are affordable, easy, and long lasting. Patients who have considered the advantages of dermal fillers and other injectables can visit the team at Premier Aesthetics in Grand Forks, North Dakota to determine their candidacy for treatment.
There are few risks associated with dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. Patients with rashes, infections, or hives should avoid injections until these concerns have healed, and patients should be in good overall health. Those who have severe allergic reactions to lidocaine or bacterial proteins should discuss this with the provider, as they may not be candidates for this treatment. Most patients will experience redness and tenderness of the injection area immediately after their treatment, but this will subside over a day or two.

Juvederm Vollure and Juvederm Vollure XC
Juvederm Voluma XC
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® XC adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want.
Clinical studies indicate Vollure™ XC will provide correction for up to 18 months. The fact that Juvederm Vollure™ lasts so long makes it very appealing to those who want to “fill it and forget it.”
