Surgery isn’t the only way to restore facial volume and refresh your facial appearance. At Perceptions Aesthetic Spa, we proudly serve men and women throughout the Sacramento area by providing clinically proven and tested non-surgical treatments to enhance your natural beauty.
Dermal fillers are one of our most popular rejuvenation options. As we age, bones become thinner and overlying fat pads slip down. The normal “V” shaped face with high cheekbones which accentuates the eyes inverts to an “A” shape with hollowing of the temples and cheekbones and fullness in the lower face. This aging process results in areas of fullness separated by areas of volume loss and shadowing.
Injectable fillers can fill in wrinkles, restore facial volume, augment the lips, and much more. Our team invites you to explore our dermal filler treatment options available at our medical spa.
Dermal Fillers Can Augment Many Signs of Aging
Fillers are a versatile treatment option. Some of the most popular treatment areas for fillers include:
Natural-looking results are possible after a dermal filler treatment. Injection is an art, so the key to achieving the best results is choosing an experienced injector. All injectors at Perceptions Aesthetic Spa are extensively trained and fully supervised by our expert medical staff.
The Juvéderm® Family of Fillers
At Perceptions Aesthetic Spa, we offer a full line of highly effective fillers for your facial enhancement needs. Many of our most popular dermal fillers come from the Juvéderm® family of hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers all contain hyaluronic acid but vary in consistency and formulation, making each filler ideally suited to specific facial zones.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC are versatile fillers that can be used from brow to chin. These dermal fillers can be used in areas such as nasolabial folds (creases from the corner of the nose to angle of the month), marionette lines (creases from angles of the mouth to the jawline) and lips.
Juvederm® Voluma™ is typically used for mid face volumizing, temples and sometimes jawline. This product has a higher cross linked hyaluronic acid molecule which makes it optimal for volume in these specific areas. Common signs of mid-face aging include flattening of the anteromedial cheek (prominent “apple” of the cheek), hollowness in the submalar area (below the cheek) and the zygomatic arch (cheek bone). These features can in many cases be instantly and dramatically improved by treatment with Juvederm® Voluma™.
Juvéderm® Vollure™ is indicated for low face volume loss such as nasiolabial folds, marionette lines and lips. This hyaluronic molecule has shown to last upwards of 18 months upon research studies. Juvéderm® Vollure™ is soft, flexible and animates well upon expression. This product is fluid and smooth like Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and Juvéderm® Ultra however lasts approximately 6 months longer.
For non-surgical lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines few treatments can compete with Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC. Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a hyaluronic acid based filler used to treat vertical lip lines and superficial lines in the low face and is indicated for lines around the mouth (perioral rhytids) and lip augmentations. Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a popular lip filler.
Which filler is best for you?
Not every dermal filler is created equal. It is important to have an expert injector assess your individual aesthetic needs so they can determine what filler will give you the best results. Our skilled injectors will help select one or more dermal fillers to target your trouble spots and refresh your facial appearance.
What to Expect During Your Dermal Filler Treatment
Dermal filler treatments will vary in length depending on the number of areas being treated. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation. During your consultation, your provider will evaluate your area of concern, review your medical history and discuss options and outcomes.
When it is time for injections, the face is carefully cleaned to remove dirt, oils, and bacteria from the skin. Fillers are injected into the targeted areas through a series of small injections. Our injectors are careful not to overfill or overtreat areas.
After a few short injections, patients can resume their daily activities immediately with minimal restrictions. Redness, swelling, and tenderness are the most commonly reported side effects after dermal filler injections. We will provide you with a list of aftercare instructions to ensure you are prepared to heal properly.
