HYALURONIC ACID dermafillers
The Dermal Filler used at SkinDiva is JUVEDERM and TEOXANE, both are high quality Hyaluronic Acids made by Allergan and Clarion. Hyaluronic acid ( HA) is close to identical to that which is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in the body. Therefore, not posing a risk of rejection or allergic reaction by our body when injected. As we age our body decreases in the production of Hyaluronic Acid giving the AGED look. When HA is injected it draws water to the area therefore restoring volume. SkinDiva uses a variety of products by JUVEDERM and TEOXANE giving our clients the best possible result.
JUVEDERM and TEOXANE is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). JUVEDERM and TEOXANE is also used to replace lost volume in the lips as well as correct lips to make them more symmetrical, giving the lips the perfect natural hydrated pout appearance.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume, gives a smoother and more hydrated appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results. With HA, there is a less risk of allergic reaction as it’s a sugar that is naturally produced by the body. HA fillers last approximately 9-18 months, depending on area of treatment. However, if you have a faster metabolism your body will metabolize the HA quicker, therefore it may not last as long as stated above.
After all is said and done, the major issue for fillers is one of longevity, followed by risk of migration and lumping. Ultimately the skill of the injector in placing the right amount of filler in exactly the right place is the key to preventing these issues from occurring, this is an artistic technique. Similar to that of an artist with a paint brush, every injector has a favorite formula and technique in injecting. Here at SkinDiva we use the most up to date of injection techniques using the MD Codes as well as the correct product of JUVEDERM and TEOXANE that is best suited for the area being treated.
HA is not a permanent or semi permanent filler therefore, HA fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called Hylauronidase. This enzyme will dissolve the filler within minutes if you are unhappy with results. Hylauronidase will also be on hand to dissolve HA product if injected into the vein causing a vascular occlusion, this is the biggest risk factor when considering HA fillers.
Wrinkle treatment or Feature Enhancement such as cheek filler with the goal of creating a soft lift. Nasiolabial area to soften the look of the deep creases created over the years. There are other areas such as tear troughs which treat under the eye bags as well as the temporal region. However, these areas are much higher risk factors and for those reasons SkinDiva does not treat these areas at this time.
Also know as a soft lift, a cheek filler will soften the nasiolabial folds (creases in your cheeks from corner of mouth to corner of nose crease) giving a lifted and more youthful appearance. Not only does it give a softened nasiolabial appearance but adds contour to the cheek bones.
After softening the nasiolabial folds using the cheek lift technique, filler could be added to the nasiolabial folds to diminish the deep wrinkle that may have been created over the years. This will finish off giving a much more youthful, rested, rejuvenated and beautiful natural appearance.
