Fillers

Wrinkles. Is there anything else that adds time and a more weathered look to your face? If there is, we haven’t seen it. Wrinkles make you feel self-conscious. They make you look older than you actually are. At Cape Cod Internal Medicine, we don’t think that’s right.

That is why we offer the very best, FDA-approved Fillers treatments for all our clients! We carry a number of dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Voluma XC, Juvederm Volbella XC and Belotero Balance, and more to deal with your unique issues! With our dermal filler treatments working in your favor, you can eliminate problem lines, fast and get back the confidence you want.

Commonly Used Fillers:

JUVÉDERM XC is the smooth gel filler that Laser Aesthetics uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. Dermal fillers at Laser Aesthetics are a non-surgical FDA approved treatment for smoothing out facial wrinkles and adding volume to deep facial folds.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM XC and works on a different area of the face.JUVÉDERM XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

NEW!  JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC is great for those who wish to add subtle volume to their lips, or want to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines.  Lines such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movement.  Volbella is the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to one year! If you want natural-looking, long lasting results, Volbella may be right for you.

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler. A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you.

JUVÉDERM XC Process

Because JUVÉDERM® XC is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!). When you come to our office, our specialist will meet with you and answer any questions you may have. We will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more about treatment with JUVÉDERM XC injectable gel.

Our specialist will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds. Then we tailor your treatment to your unique needs using one or both of the two available JUVÉDERM XC formulations. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC provides versatility in contouring and adding volume to facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is a more robust formulation to smooth and correct deeper folds and wrinkles.

Using a fine needle, JUVÉDERM XC is injected under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis, your skin’s inner layer. This will add volume and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds instantly. Following the injection, the doctor may gently massage the treated areas to smooth out gel appropriately. The entire injection process takes about 15-20 minutes depending upon the areas being treated. The procedure is quick and easy and the results are instant!

You may experience some minor discomfort before and after the injection, but the smooth consistency of JUVÉDERM XC gel allows it to be administered easily, with smooth, natural results and the gel is now formulated with the common anesthetic lidocaine to enhance the comfort of the treatment experience. We may also numb some areas with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.

With JUVÉDERM XC, you should be able to get back to your daily routine immediately after your appointment. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature and typically last seven days or less. And JUVÉDERM XC is the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment.

JUVÉDERM XC Results

Having wrinkles around your face can make you feel self-conscious and feeling older than you truly are. You need a way to rid yourself of unwanted skin wrinkles so your outer appearance can reflect how you feel on the inside, young and full of life.

JUVÉDERM® restores the skin’s volume in a subtle, smooth, natural way that holds up over time so that everyone will notice, but no one will know. JUVÉDERM XC is the only FDA-approved HA filler that lasts up to 1 year with just one treatment. However, you may be skeptical of what the results will actually look like. How would you know if the treatments are actually having an effect?
