Treating Signs of Aging

Signs of aging that can be treated by fillers include not only the “laugh lines” around the eyes and mouth, but also hollow cheeks, thin lips, and downturned mouths. In some cases, placement around the brow and eyelids can help lift a droopy brow, or fill out the appearance of dark, hollow eyes.

Numerous fillers are available to meet the wide range of cosmetic concerns. Many fillers such as Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC or Juvederm Vouluma XC offer immediate results and minimal downtime. The options for fillers are constantly growing, and proper selection and placement of the filler are essential for optimal results.

Many times, fillers can also be combined with botulinum toxin for an even smoother effect, since botox works to block the creases that form when a facial expression is made, such as the “frown lines” between the eyebrows.

While fillers are considered safe, all medical procedures carry some risk. Minor bruising, swelling, small lumps, under-filled areas, and asymmetry may occur. It may be helpful to avoid blood-thinners, aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E prior to the procedure to help minimize bruising.
