Why Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers

dermal fillersWhen it comes to taking care of your skin and your body, it’s important to know exactly what you’re putting in it and how it works. As two of the most popular fillers that Dr. Daniel Tresley offers, both Juvederm and Restylane have one common thread: hyaluronic acid. So, what is hyaluronic acid and how does it work? Read on to learn more.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

The thing that patients like to hear most about hyaluronic acid is that it is a substance that is found naturally in your body— meaning that when you get these types of fillers, you aren’t adding anything foreign to your body. Found primarily in your skin tissues, the fluid around your eyes, and in some of your joints and cartilage, hyaluronic acid works to fill in the skin and make it appear smoother. As a substance that isn’t derived from animal sources, patients can rest assured that no animals were being harmed in the creation of your filler.

How Does It Work?

No matter how good your genes are, your skin will start to lose elasticity and volume as you age— leaving you with fine lines and wrinkles across your face and forehead. However, hyaluronic acid works to support facial tissues and structures by adding more volume and elasticity to them. Additionally, it also brings water to the surface of the skin which helps to keep your skin constantly hydrated.

Why Hyaluronic Acid?

As mentioned above, because hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in your body, it makes it safe. Not only is hyaluronic acid natural, but it is also effective— giving patients real results that in some instances can last up to a year.

Dr. Daniel Tresley offers patients the best in the business, and that’s why he likes to use hyaluronic based fillers. If you would like to learn more about these fillers or some of our other treatments, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today!

Juvederm Ultra Vs. Juvederm Ultra Plus

dermal fillersFuller lips and less wrinkles around your mouth and nose are just a few of the things that fillers can help with. If you are starting to notice that you are showing signs of aging around the lower half of your face, then you may want to consider getting some fillers done by Dr. Daniel Tresley in order to get rid of them. However, with several different types of fillers available on the market, the decision of what type you should get might seem a bit overwhelming. As one of the most popular fillers to use, and one that Dr. Daniel Tresley recommends for most patients, Juvederm works to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles by using a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. But did you know that there are two different types of Juvederm that Dr. Daniel Tresley offers? Read on to learn more about the distinctions between these two types of fillers.

First, in order to fully understand the distinct differences between both Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus, it’s nice to know the commonalities that these two fillers share.

  • Both are made up of hyaluronic acid
  • Both are injectables that are injected directly into the dermis
  • Both work by adding volume and smoothing out wrinkles in and around the injection site.

Juvederm Ultra
Juvederm Ultra is an effective filler that is best used to treat more moderate fine lines and wrinkles. Specifically, if you have small smile lines around your mouth or if you just want a little bit of a fuller lip, then Juvederm Ultra will be good for you. Additionally, if you have any scars that need correcting, because Juvederm Ultra’s consistency is a bit thinner, it is great to treat scars.

Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus tends to last a bit longer and is more ideally suited for individuals who either want dramatically fuller lips or need to fill in lines and wrinkles that are a bit more significant in size.

Say goodbye to thin lips and wrinkles around your mouth and nose with either type Juvederm! To learn more about what type Juvederm is best suited for you and your needs or to schedule an appointment or consultation with Dr. Daniel Tresley, contact our office today!
