Dermal fillers, sometimes called facial fillers or simply fillers, are used to restore lost volume throughout the face. Some dermal fillers can also be used on the decolletage, hands, and other parts of the body that may shrink, become hollow, or wrinkle with age.
Dr. Jayesh Panchal offers a comprehensive range of dermal fillers, enabling him to meet the various needs of each patient we see. It is important to remember that, while active ingredients may be similar, different fillers are formulated for different parts of the body – and the FDA has only approved their uses for specific treatments. During your initial consultation at one of our three Oklahoma City area offices, Dr. Panchal will listen to your concerns, carefully evaluate your problem areas, and help you choose the best filler for your needs.
The Juvederm Family
Dr. Panchal offers four products from the Juvederm line:
- Juvederm XC
- Juvederm Volbella
- Juvederm Vollura
- Juvederm Voluma
These hyaluronic acid fillers work to restore moisture underneath the skin, gently filling in fine lines and deep wrinkles. Depending on the product, these fillers can last from 12 to 24 months and may be useful for addressing signs of aging throughout the face. Lip augmentation is also possible with products from the Juvederm family.
Juvederm treatments can be reversed with hyaluronidase if so desired, but patient satisfaction with this family of dermal fillers is very high and reversals are uncommon.
Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafill
In addition to fillers from the Juvederm line of products, Dr. Panchal offers:
- Radiesse – a calcium hydroxyapatite filler, Radiesse stimulates collagen production to restore lost volume
- Sculptra – a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler, Sculptra stimulates collagen production to restore volume to cheeks and temples
- Bellafill – a bovine collagen filler, Bellafill adds biocompatible collagen to the body to help restore lost volume
These dermal fillers may continue to produce results for two to five years depending on the type and your body’s natural response. Some of these fillers can also be used to improve the appearance of the hands.
Choosing the Best Filler
Choosing the best filler requires working with someone who understands the benefits and limitations of each formula. It also requires working with someone who can identify the root cause of cosmetic imperfections and customize a treatment plan to address those specific concerns.
