Juvederm & Other Dermal Fillers
Dr. Carranza offers the world’s #1 selling collection of fillers – Juvederm
Dermal filler, like Juvederm, is a gel-like substance that is typically injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume. Most injectors also use Juvederm to smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours in the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Juvederm is a synthetic hyaluronic acid – which we produce naturally. As we age, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid. We then see a gradual loss of volume because of this decline in production. That’s where injections like Juvederm, serve as a “filler” for areas affected with volume loss.
Dermal fillers can be used for a variety of other cosmetic concerns:
- Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
- Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
- Diminish vertical lip lines
- Plump & enhance the lips
- Smooth out a chin crease
- Improve symmetry among facial features
When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, give your decision the same level of care and scrutiny that you would when considering a surgical procedure. Non-surgical filler is still a medical procedure that requires specific training, knowledge and skill to ensure safe treatment and natural-looking results. Choose a provider with an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, a well-developed aesthetic eye, and a surgeon’s skill and precision.
