Did you know that one key factor in the aging process is a natural relationship between subcutaneous fat and the face? Over time, we begin to display signs of aging because of loss of collagen and elastin, fat pad descent, bone loss, and fat tissue loss in areas that typically make our faces appear more youthful. Unfortunately, this process, combined with gravity, generates and can exacerbate the facial aging process. For those who feel concerned and want to address this process, dermal fillers are one of your best nonsurgical answers to maintaining a youthful appearance.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin. At VIPS, we use products made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body. These products address wrinkles, fine lines, and creases by smoothing them out, softening them, and enhancing the contour of the face. Men and women often choose this treatment as a cost-effective way to achieve a younger look without surgery or extended recovery. 

Dermal Filler Types and What They Do

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), dermal fillers have been one of the most popular, effective, nonsurgical ways to shape the face and prevent aging. We use a multi-faceted approach to address signs of aging through multiple products, such as BOTOX, Dysport, and different Juvéderm and Restylane products!

Anti-Aging, Wrinkles, & Fine Lines

Even the best skincare routine won’t prevent all signs of aging. However, products like BOTOX and Dysport, an injectable that temporarily blocks nerve signals in targeted muscles, make wrinkles soften and, in some cases, vanish, come pretty close! BOTOX is one of the most well-known, although not the only, wrinkle solution that provides natural-looking results. BOTOX treats these areas of the face: 

  • Forehead wrinkles;
  • Crow’s feet wrinkles;
  • Frown lines between eyes;
  • Nose wrinkles (aka bunny lines).

Adding Volume & Looking Younger

The volume we lose in our faces can deepen wrinkles, shrink lips, and create flatter cheeks. The Juvéderm and Restylane injectable family line is perfect for treating these issues. Using Juvéderm products, we can target these facial areas for rejuvenation: 

  • Lips;
  • Cheeks; 
  • Jawline;
  • Chin;
  • Perioral (i.e., around the mouth).

Spotlight on Juvéderm and Restylane at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery

If you visit VIPS in Port Saint Lucie, FL, all of the above are options, although we like to shine a spotlight every now and then on the Juvéderm family of products. They are one of Dr. Vinyard’s preferred fillers for increasing facial volume to combat the signs of aging.

Juvéderm treatment plans provide positive results when used solo, together, or with other nonsurgical treatment plans. Juvéderm is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) and is designed to increase your natural supply of HA for supple, fuller skin. 

Through your complimentary consultation with Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and his team of experts, you’ll be able to determine both if you are an ideal candidate and, if so, which treatment plan works best. The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments are adults who have lines and wrinkles they would like to improve. It can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your lips and/or cheeks. 

Juvéderm dermal filler treatments at VIPS are ideal for rejuvenating your appearance without the recovery time and expense of facial cosmetic surgery (like brow lifts, facelifts, or lip implants). As it relates to your ideal treatment plan, it could include any of the following products: 

#1: Juvéderm XC and Vollure 

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Vollure correct moderate to severe wrinkles and lines on the face, like parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results usually last for about one year.

#2: Juvéderm Ultra XC and Volbella 

Juvéderm Ultra XC and Volbella add shape to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while correcting the appearance of fine, vertical lines on the lips. The results can usually be seen for up to one year.

#3: Juvéderm Voluma 

Juvéderm Voluma augments the contour of the cheeks, chin, and jaw to treat flatness in the mid and lower face.

Whatever your treatment plan dictates, you’ll be in good hands with both the VIPS team of experts and with this line of products. And for those of you who may wonder, are there the same options for dermal fillers near me?, we’ve got you covered. Please feel free to utilize the wealth of information on our blog as research and support to help determine your options and approach in your local area.
