Injectable Fillers

Non-surgical injectable fillers have many uses in facial rejuvenation. They can add volume to thinning facial features and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases. Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar uses injectable fillers to help men and women from Naperville and throughout suburban Chicago look younger without surgery.

Injectable Filler Considerations

There are many different fillers to choose from. Dr. Jejurikar offers JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Sculptra® Aesthetic, and Restylane® at his suburban Chicago, IL practice. He has the experience to help choose the right filler for you and to accomplish your cosmetic goals.

  • JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel: Made with hyaluronic acid, this filler is a smooth-consistency gel that glides easily into the skin. It is well-suited for nasolabial folds (also referred to as "smile lines") and may last up to 1 year. Produced by the maker of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM is available in two solutions: JUVÉDERM Ultra and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus to correct deeper creases.
     
  • Restylane: Also made with hyaluronic acid, it can correct facial wrinkles and folds such as those between the nose and mouth, the fine lines above the lip, and the creases that turn down the corners of the mouth. The results look natural and can last from 6 to 18 months.
     
  • Sculptra: Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane, Sculptra is made with poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra actually stimulates collagen growth for a gradual, natural-looking, long-lasting (up to 2 years) improvement. In addition to reducing wrinkles, Sculptra can correct the appearance of facial fat loss.

Dr. Jejurikar also offers an alternative to dermal fillers called fat grafting. Transferring fat from an area of the body where it's unwanted to use as a facial filler is a good option for patients who want longer-lasting results. Unlike synthetic fillers, fat is a permanent filler that can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles or correct the appearance of bags under the eyes. It's also used for lip and cheek augmentation.

The Injectable Filler Procedure

Injectable fillers can accomplish a variety of cosmetic goals. They can be used for wrinkle reduction, to fill-out facial features that have lost volume through the aging process, or for lip enhancement in suburban Chicago. How the procedure is performed depends upon the type of filler and the purpose for which it is being used. The procedure is usually performed in Dr. Jejurikar's office. Most of the time, it will be performed with local anesthesia. Treatment is generally quick and comfortable. There will be a few injections with a small needle, and you're on your way.

Recovery & Results

Treatment with injectable fillers requires virtually no downtime. After the procedure, you can return to your normal routine within 24 hours. The results of each injectable filler can vary from patient to patient. However, depending upon the filler you choose, you can expect results to appear quickly and last anywhere from several months to 2 years. These non-surgical treatments are repeatable, so you can come back to Dr. Jejurikar for continued improvement.
