New Dermal Fillers

Hughes Dermatology was a participant in the "JET" (Juvederm Experience Trial) Program, so we are experienced and pleased with Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm consists of more highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid than Restylane and flows a bit easier. This sustains its effect. It is used for lip volume enhancement and filling nasolabial and marionette lines. Juvederm Ultra Plus obtained FDA approval as lasting 12 months. The newest Juvederm Ultra Plus XC now has lidocaine added to the product, making it more comfortable for the patient. It is "smoother" to inject than Restylane and patients generally prefer it in the lips.

Juvederm can be used on the dorsum of the nose, creating a nice "nose job" there.

For a more natural look, Dr. Hughes and Tichy will add "pillows" to the lower lip when doing lip enhancement.

"Belotero Balance" is a recent (2013) hyaluronic filler that can be used in very superficial lines. We are using it with great success for undulated acne scars and fine lines around the mouth.

"Juvederm Voluma XC" is a new (2014) FDA-approved long lasting (2 years) hyaluronic acid filler for correction of mid-face volume. By lifting the midface, nasolabial lines are improved.

Hyaluronic Acid Lip Volume Enhancement

Hughes Dermatology is offering "Sculptra" treatments as a volume filler for cheeks, nasolabial and marionette lines (not lips), producing a "lifting" effect as well. This is helpful for thin, fit women or men who have lost facial cheek volume (lipoatrophy) and have resultant looseness and wrinkling in this area. A recent article in Dermatology Times provides a nice overview of this treatment. Lasting 2 years (or more), it has been called a "liquid facelift."

Injections of biodegradable Sculptra are done every 8 weeks with volume improvement after each injection (secondary to new collagen production) occuring slowly over 8-12 weeks. Typically, 3 sessions are required for optimum correction. There is no down-time other than occasional bruising. Sculptra is initially expensive but is safe, cost effective and long-lasting.

Juvederm is being used by Hughes Dermatology to add volume to the tops of hands, creating "hand rejuvenation." We use the new "depot" technique which produces less bruising.

Hand Rejuvenation

Sidney Coleman, M.D. states, "Aesthetic surgery is moving rapidly away from excision and suspension procedures to augmentation procedures for rejuvenation in particular. The primary event of facial aging is atrophy or loss of fullness. The obvious solution for atrophy is restoration of volume or fullness." Before getting a traditional invasive face lift, consult with Dr. Hughes or Dr. Tichy to see if you are a good candidate for this noninvasive more natural alternative dermal filler.
