Dermal fillers at our Roanoke, VA, cosmetic surgery center can help smooth out wrinkles and depressed scars. Some fillers can even enhance skeletal features such as chins and cheekbones. Although many fillers are available, Dr. Silberblatt uses the following to provide best results: a patient’s own fat, JUVÉDERMXC (ULTRA & ULTRA PLUS), and JUVÉDERM XC (VOLBELLA, VOLLURE, & VOLUMA).
The most natural filler available is a patient’s own fat. The fat grafting procedure uses a thin tube, called a cannula, and collection filters to minimize damage to the collected fat cells. After the fat cells are harvested, they are precisely injected into the treatment site to maximize chances that the graft “takes.” Advantages of using your own fat are that your body will not reject the fat and results can be long-lasting. Disadvantages include the discomfort of harvesting fat, protracted swelling at the injection site, and variable results. Most patients find that swelling and bruising associated with fat grafting require taking off work for several days to a week.
Dr. Silberblatt most frequently uses JUVÉDERM as a filler. This product is a preparation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in connective tissues. The manufacturer has added a local anesthetic to the product to make treatments more comfortable, even in the lips. JUVÉDERM results typically last at least 6 months and substantially longer for many patients, although experiences vary. Dr. Silberblatt recommends JUVÉDERM to soften or smooth out nasolabial lines or those under the corner of the mouth. JUVÉDERM treatments can also make lips fuller and reduce lipstick bleed lines around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the only FDA-approved injectable filler designed to reduce signs of aging and volume deficit in the cheek region for patients who are at least 21 years of age. Like JUVÉDERM, this innovative solution contains a naturally occurring hyaluronic acid plus a local anesthetic to improve comfort during treatment. Dr. Silberblatt uses JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC to help augment cheeks that have lost volume for any number of reasons. Augmenting the cheek regions can also help smooth moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid-face for a more youthful contour. Results often appear instantaneously and have been clinically proven to last up to 2 years in many cases, although actual patient experiences vary. VOLBELLA and VOLLURE are less concentrated versions of VOLUMA and can be used to correct superficial wrinkles around the mouth and on the face. These three products all attract less water and are useful in areas where we might desire to control protracted swelling.
Fillers other than fat can typically be injected 1 day with the patient returning to normal activities the next day. Minor swelling and occasional bruising can occur, but these effects usually can be camouflaged with makeup.
Interested in Other Injectable Treatments?
Patients interested in other minimally invasive injectables can benefit from treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or KYBELLA®. BOTOX injections can be great for minimizing frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles, while KYBELLA offers an innovative solution for non-surgically reducing the appearance of a double chin.
