Injectable fillers can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or to fill scars and uneven areas of the face.
They can also be used to add volume to thin lips, restore fullness to your cheeks or add definition to your jaw line.
Fillers are an affordable, non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery that can bring immediate results with little pain, swelling, or bruising.
O'Donoghue Dermatology carries a variety of products that cater to the specific needs of our patients including JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, and Restylane® and Restylane Perlane®.
JUVÉDERM injectable gel is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, "parentheses" or smile lines, corner lines, marionette lines, vertical lip lines (nasolabial folds) and it is ideal for providing volume and definition to lips.
JUVÉDERM XC is the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth for up to one year with optimal treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
As you age, your cheeks can lose volume and the skin begins to sag.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss and it can provide contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Restylane is used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or to enhance the fullness of your lips.
Restylane fills in lines and wrinkles resulting in a more youthful appearance and stimulates your skin's collagen production giving your skin greater elasticity and smoother texture.
Restylane stays in your skin for up to 9 months resulting in longer lasting effects than less advanced fillers.
Perlane is used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Just like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin.
What makes Perlane different than Restylane?
The size of the particles and the depth of injection make Perlane a good choice for the more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
