Dermal Fillers

Nonsurgical dermal fillers have many uses in facial rejuvenation. They can add volume to thinning facial features and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar uses dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Sculptra® to help people from Naperville, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, and throughout the Chicago suburbs look younger without surgery.

JUVÉDERM Family of Fillers

juvedermProduced by the maker of BOTOX® Cosmetic, the JUVÉDERM collection of fillers all contain hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the skin that retains moisture. Available formulations include:

JUVÉDERM® Ultra

Volume loss around the nose and mouth are often among the first noticeable signs of facial aging. With the help of Ultra, mild to moderate lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth can be corrected and a more youthful look restored. This filler can also add fullness to naturally thin lips or fill out lips that have thinned over time.

Results last: 6 to 9 months

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus

This filler, made with a thicker, more viscous substance than JUVÉDERM Ultra, can provide more dramatic results in areas with deeper lines and hollows in the skin. Ultra Plus adds immediate volume and restores a smoother appearance to the face.

Results last: 9 to 12 months

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®

VOLBELLA is a smooth flexible filler, specifically designed for subtle lip plumping and smoothing fine lines around the mouth.

Results last: 6 to 9 months

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®

VOLUMA is used for restoring volume to the cheek and mid face that is lost with aging. It gives flat, sagging cheeks a subtle lift to restore a more youthful appearance.

Results last: up to 2 years

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra is made with poly-L-lactic acid. It actually stimulates collagen growth for a gradual, natural-looking, long-lasting improvement. In addition to reducing wrinkles, Sculptra can correct the appearance of facial fat loss.

Results last: up to 2 years

Restylane® Family of Fillers

Restylane® Lyft

Is a dermal filler specifically formulated with hyaluronic acid gel to replace lost volume to your cheeks as well as contour the jawline.

Restylane® Refyne and Defyne

Restylane Defyne is used for thicker and deeper lines and folds in the face. Restylane Refyne helps correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines on the face and add more volume to the lips for a more younger yet natural appearance.

Natural Filler Alternative

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.

What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers add volume just beneath the skin. They can accomplish a variety of cosmetic goals, including:

  • Wrinkle reduction. Fillers smooth out lines and wrinkles, especially around the mouth and in the lower face.
  • Filling out facial features that have lost volume through the aging process. This often includes the cheeks.
  • Lip enhancement. At his suburban Chicago practice, Dr. Jejurikar uses fillers to restore volume to lips that have thinned over time and augment lips that are naturally small.

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.

Dermal Filler 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 nonsurgical treatments are repeatable, so you can come back to Dr. Jejurikar for continued improvement.
