About Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers, also known as injectable dermal fillers, are a non-surgical treatment utilized to plump lips, smooth wrinkles and lines, and fill areas of the face that have lost volume and fullness.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in almost all living animals. Hyaluronic acid is concentrated in the soft connective tissues of your body, in cartilage and joint fluids, in the fluid that encompasses your eyes, and even in skin tissue. HA has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers because of its effectiveness, safety, reproducibility, and reversibility. It mixes with water and creates a swelling effect, plumping up the area it is injected into. It also brings water to the skin's surface, creating a smooth, filling effect.

The Juvéderm Collection

Juvéderm in Tampa offers a range of dermal fillers designed to address different areas of concern. The products in the collection include the following.

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Juvéderm Ultra adds volume to the lips and smooths fine lines around the mouth.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC

Juvéderm Ultra Plus adds volume to the cheeks, chin, and nasolabial folds.

Juvéderm Voluma XC

Voluma adds volume to the cheeks, jawline, and chin, providing a more youthful and lifted appearance.

Juvéderm Vollure XC

The Vollure product smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.

Juvéderm Volbella XC

This filler adds subtle volume to the lips and softens fine lines around the mouth. Volbella is also FDA-approved for tear troughs.

The fillers are injected into the skin to restore volume and enhance facial contours, providing natural-looking and long-lasting results. During your consultation with our board-certified clinician, we will discuss the specific treatment areas and the products we will use to deliver your desired results.

Recovery

An added bonus with HA fillers is that downtime is often negligible. Most normal activities can be resumed immediately following the treatment, and side effects are often so minimal they won’t interfere with everyday life. It is not uncommon to have swelling and some minimal bruising at the injection sites. To ensure the best results and prevent any negative side effects, it is best to avoid strenuous activity for a few days and avoid rubbing the point of injection. Keep your head elevated while sleeping and avoid sleeping on the treated area, as this will help with any bruising or swelling. Also, avoid being in the sun too long, as excessive sun exposure may prolong swelling.

How Quickly Can I See Results?

The results of hyaluronic acid fillers are visible immediately and typically last several months to over a year, depending on which filler is used and how much was injected. To prolong your results, it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle and daily practices to delay the natural aging process. Proper sun protection, a daily skincare regimen, and diet and exercise are all lifestyle habits that help keep signs of aging at bay. Remember, the amount of filler used to correct areas is determined by factors such as age, volume loss, patient goals, and sun damage.

What type of HA fillers work best for me?

There are several types of hyaluronic acid injectables on the market that vary in chemical makeup and longevity. The FDA tests each filler to determine which cosmetic issues it can target most effectively. Brands such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Belotero, and Revanesse are some commonly known HA fillers. Within these brands, several products are used for different areas of concern.

In addition, other non-HA filler products are on the market, such as Sculptra, Bellafill, and Radiesse. These products are FDA-approved, but figuring out which is right for you can be confusing. Before your treatment, our nurse practitioner, Michelle, will discuss your desired aesthetic goals with you and determine the best type of filler needed to achieve optimal results.

How much do hyaluronic acid fillers cost?

The cost of HA fillers can vary significantly depending on which type of filler you choose and how much of the filler is used. Most clinicians will price the injectable filler per syringe or by the area being treated, and most cases require more than one syringe in order to target the area of concern. The cost of fillers can also vary by the qualifications and experience of the person administering the injections, as well as where the procedure is being done. We strongly suggest seeing a board-certified clinician for your treatment to ensure the correct technique is used and proper care instructions are communicated. If you’ve considered HA fillers, but feel like you are limited financially, speak to one of the VIVIFY staff members about financing options. We do our best to work with each patient by offering financing plans to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
