These volumizing products are made with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and Poly-L-lactic acid.

HOW DO HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS WORK?
Both Restylane and Juvéderm are soft tissue fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid. Also known as HA, Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the skin. HA retains water, keeping the skin hydrated, plump, and youthful-looking. When formulated as a filler, HA acts as a volumizing substance. As the name suggests, HA fillers fill in fine lines and creases. These cosmetic injections are especially good at filling in wrinkles in the lower portion of the face. Popular treatment areas include fine lines around the nose and mouth.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers can also plump up areas with age-related volume loss. These include sunken cheekbones or under-eye bags.
Lastly, these volumizing formulas can restore symmetry and enhance facial features. This includes lip injections for lip augmentation.

With age, our faces lose firmness and tone. Facial fillers such as Juvéderm can be used to reverse this effect. Juvéderm is the most popular filler in the United States due to its lasting effect (approx. 9-12 months).1 Juvéderm comes in various types. The most popular being ultra, ultra plus, and Voluma.
Ultra is a softer gel than Ultra Plus. Ultra is best used to:
- Add volume to lips
- Improve sagging lower lids
- Building a nose bridge
- Elongating the chin
- Forehead sculpting
Ultra Plus is a thicker gel than Ultra. Ultra Plus is best used in areas with thicker skin. Common treatment areas include:
- The cheeks
- Nasolabial folds (the most popular treatment area).
Your Ultra Plus treatment: A topical anesthetic is applied to the injection area, and the medication is then injected under the skin. The improvement is immediate. The effects generally last from nine months to one year, depending on which product you use.
As the name suggests, Voluma is intended to add volume. This hyaluronic acid filler is specially formulated to be thicker and smoother than other gels. This makes Voluma optimal for lifting the cheeks and firming the jawline. Because the filler is injected into a deeper layer of the dermis than the surface layer, its effect is subtle, and you can’t feel it or see it.
Volume loss in the cheeks: As you grow older, your cheeks lose volume. This loss of fullness can make your cheeks look sunken and can create hollows and dark circles beneath your eyes.
Losing volume in your cheeks can be one of the early signs of aging. You may start to see a general lack of facial fullness starting in your 30s, or possibly in your mid to late 20s. As your cheeks descend, your chin may lose definition, deep lines may extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth, and the contour of your jaw may lose its sharpness.
How Does Voluma Restore A Youthful Face Shape?
Like other nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, treatment with Voluma is minimally invasive. The facial filler is injected into various areas of your cheeks to lift the skin and restore fullness. These injections should not be painful. Voluma is combined with lidocaine, an anesthetic that will numb the injection site.
Benefits of Voluma
- Minimally invasive
- No downtime required
- A non-surgical alternative to cheek & chin implants and surgical rhinoplasty
- Results can last 18 months to 2 years.²
- Restores volume to sunken cheeks
- Provides a subtle facial lifting effect
- Natural-looking results
- Finely sculpts the cheeks and nose
- Can elongate the chin
Restylane is a soft tissue filler formulated with hyaluronic acid. Its source is non-animal based, which eliminates the need for pre-treatment testing. An advantageous aspect of this product is its resemblance to the hyaluronic acid produced in the body, creating a high level of safety and efficacy.
Benefits of Restylane
Each dermal filler product has unique characteristics that make it suitable for specific goals. Restylane has a proven safety record built over twenty years of clinical use. Its natural ingredients are kind to tissues and capable of restoring the desired contours. Clinical studies demonstrate the longevity of Restylane in the treatment of laugh lines, lasting several months at a time. When used to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other creases in the skin, Restylane can last approximately six months. However, every person metabolizes dermal fillers differently and may enjoy results for a slightly longer or shorter period. *
Wrinkle-reduction And More with Restylane
One of the primary uses of Restylane is to smooth lines and wrinkles on the face. Different than Botox, which lessens the strength of muscular contractions, Restylane fills areas of depression, plumping them up to a level surface for a more youthful appearance.
The purpose of Restylane treatment is to restore the presence of hyaluronic acid in problem areas such as marionette lines and the corners of the mouth.
Additionally, the smooth gel consistency of this product makes it suitable for natural-looking lip enhancement. Careful application of this filler adds fullness and volume to the lips, and the definition needed to keep lipstick beautifully in place. Aesthetic medicine is a results-oriented practice. Dr. John Lee, MD and his teams patients’ expectations and satisfaction are our priority. When you visit the Lux Skin Lasers for a wrinkle-reducing treatment, we conduct a comprehensive consultation and evaluation of your skin. One of the reasons patients choose Restylane is because the gentle, natural ingredients allow them to remain in control of their aging process and their facial expressions.
HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS FAQ
The signs of aging can detract from your natural beauty, making you look older than you feel. Dermal fillers are a quick, non-surgical treatment with immediate results in skin rejuvenation. Some people benefit from surgical procedures that can eliminate signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. Others, however, benefit more from nonsurgical options that can provide a restored, refreshed look and help boost self-confidence.
There are many facial fillers available today. The most popular fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. The two most used forms of hyaluronic acid fillers are Juvéderm and Restylane. These three products are very similar in effect, but Restalyne generally lasts about six months, while Juvéderm will last between 12 to 24 months, depending on the exact line of filler. Other popular facial fillers include Radiesse (calcium particles), Artefil (plexiglass particles in collagen), and Sculptra (biodegradable thermoplastic). Although more prolonged effects can be achieved with these materials, there is a significant risk associated with these products, and the removal of the products is complicated and can lead to scarring and deformity.
Treatment with cosmetic fillers is highly customizable. Therefore, Restylane and Juvéderm cost varies for each patient. Pricing is determined by the number of units prescribed, and the number of units varies per person and treatment area. During your consultation at Lux Skin Lasers, Juvéderm and Restylane cost will be discussed in detail. Financing options and ways to save on your cosmetic treatment will also be covered.

According to Dr. John Lee, “The face is ever-changing. So, it is important to use a product that can be modified with time. More permanent fillers like fat and collagen may look good today, but awkward five years from now. Removing permanent fillers require surgery and results in unacceptable scarring. Therefore. I only use HA-based fillers like Juvéderm. They have the safest profiles of all fillers on the market.”
