DERMAL FILLERS

At Dermablue, we are Asheville’s premier center for injectable fillers and use Allergan products to complement Botox Cosmetic. JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.

At Dermablue, we use Hyaluronic acid based fillers because hyaluronic acid is your primary building block of collagen. Collagen restores volume to your face which is the primary cause of facial wrinkles and aging. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin, helping the skin retain moisture and softness and adding volume. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are extremely safe and effective and have been used for over 20 years!

Additionally, we offer longer lasting fillers like Bellafill, Radiesse and Sculptra to address age-related concerns, as well as acne scarring.  These fillers can last 5 years or longer and help your body create natural collagen. They can be used in combination with hyaluronic acid based fillers and nova threads  for a non-surgical face lift; to create a long lasting, natural lift.  

What to Expect During an Injectable Filler Treatment Session

An injection of dermal filler usually takes about 15 minutes. You may be asked to avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen prior to receiving the injection to minimize bleeding or bruising. Because the cross-linked hyaluronic acid in the Juvederm family of products are non-animal based, patients do not have to worry about allergic reactions.

Although injections may cause some discomfort, many people do not require application of a topical anesthesia. However, patients requesting topical numbing creams will be given them as needed. Following the injection, patients should avoid engaging in rigorous exercise or exposing their skin to excessive heat and sunlight. Temporary swelling, redness and itching are possible side effects, and if present, are usually mild and often resolve within hours after a treatment. At Dermablue, we minimize this with outstanding injection techniques and by applying an ice pack to the injection site after your treatment.

So, what is the best dermal filler for me?

At Dermablue, having a suite of specialized fillers allows us to fine-tune each patient’s treatment for a very natural result. As a patient, however, knowing the subtle differences between products isn’t nearly as important as knowing what to look for in a dermal filler provider: formal medical training, in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, skillful artistry, and experience using all of the different filler products.

A provider with these qualities will be able to select the right filler for you needs, given your skin type, goals and personal preferences. At Dermablue, we will perform injections safely and skillfully to achieve a beautiful outcome. More often than not, a combination of different fillers offers the most satisfying, long-lasting results. Let us help you select the right dermal fillers for you here in Asheville at Dermablue!

BELLAFILL

Bellafill is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Now, you can look your best without wasting time and money on frequent filler injections.

Bellafill’s tiny, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, the collagen gel immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres in Bellafill to create a “scaffold” onto which your own natural collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance – and giving you natural-looking results that feel soft and smooth for up to 5 years.

Bellafill® is the only long-term filler that’s FDA approved to treat distensible acne scars for longer than one year. In just one office visit, you can safely treat your acne scars and leave feeling confident that you’ll look your best long-term.

What areas does it treat?

At Dermablue, we use Bellafill for nasolabial folds, cheek, forehead, neck and acne scarring.  It is our filler of choice for long-lasting, natural results for those who want total transformation.  

How long does it last?

Bellafill lasts up to 5 or more years.  

RADIESSE

RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin.  This is our favorite filler to restore cheek volume and restore loss of facial volume due to normal facial bone loss due to aging.   Over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.  RADIESSE has been used for over a decade and has a long track record of safety and efficacy.

What areas does it treat?

RADIESSE is used in total facial rejuvenation and can be used to reshape or create an ‘non surgical’ implant like look to reshape noses, chins, restore volume in hands or anywhere you would like long lasting, natural results.

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, an underlying cause of facial aging, for results which last more than two years.   It’s used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds and has been used almost anywhere to replace lost volume or to create volume where more is desired.  This is the product Kim Kardashian made famous with her non-surgical ‘butt lift’ and yes, we can do that too!

Juvederm is also infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

In addition to Juvederm, at Dermablue we use all of Allergan’s newest Hyluronic Acid injectable fillers to provide the best possible treatment outcome.

• Voluma contains the thickest, strongest gel—ideal for deep injection into the cheek area to get a nice lift and volume boost.
• Volbella contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel—perfect to fill fine lip lines or even smooth the delicate area under the eyes.
• Vollure combines a “happy medium” of durability and spreadability to treat nasolabial folds while allowing for natural facial expressions and movements.

VOLUMA

Voluma skin injectable is the first and only FDA approved cheek filler injected to correct age related volume loss. While most dermal injectable fillers are used to smooth and decrease specific facial lines, Voluma actually adds volume to the cheeks to contour the face. Voluma skin injectable is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the skin that begins to decrease as we age. This process is the result of the loss of volume and sagging in the cheeks. Voluma is the skin injectable solution for giving you that subtle lift to restore facial contour and a more youthful profile.

What areas does it treat?
At Dermablue, we use Voluma for overall facial contouring and to add volume to the cheek and mid face. It is the most robust filler we use and can provide dramatic, long lasting results. Voluma is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

How long does it last?
One treatment can last up to 2 years.

 

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable filler was found to effectively increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth in a majority of subjects through one year. Many people are very bothered by the lines that can appear around the lips, known as perioral rhytids or lines.

What areas does it treat?
At Dermablue, we use Volbella to add the most natural volume to the lips and it is our favorite filler used to smooth vertical lip lines. Volbella provides extremely natural and soft results. Volbella is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

How long does it last?
One treatment can last up to one year.
