The versatility of dermal fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® used at our Auburn, CA, med spa makes them equally effective whether you want to soften wrinkles or create attractive contours to enhance specific facial features. Our aesthetic nurse specialists at Vibrance Medical Spa have built a loyal following by consistently producing remarkable, natural-looking results with filler injections.
What Are the Benefits of Fillers?
The popularity of fillers continues to increase because they can be used to address a wide range of concerns. In addition to reversing signs of aging, they can sculpt and shape the contours of your face. Treatment sessions typically last less than an hour, there is no downtime, and the results can last from 9 months to 2 years, depending on the product.
Vibrance Medical Spa offers several types of fillers to address multiple concerns. Besides the JUVÉDERM and Restylane family of products, we also have the innovative RHA® Collection.
Filler treatments may be right for you if you’re bothered by:
- Nasolabial folds, which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines, which run downward from the corners of the mouth
- Fine lip lines
- Lost volume in the cheeks
- Thin or asymmetrical lips
- Hollows or dark circles under your eyes
Facial contouring with fillers is also a popular option at Vibrance, especially for patients who want to enhance their cheeks or create a more defined chin and jawline.
What Fillers Are Right for You?
The most popular fillers are all formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), a synthetic version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is biocompatible and not associated with allergic reactions. Beyond that similarity, however, fillers have different consistencies and respond in unique ways as your face moves.
Which filler is right for you really depends on the concerns you want to address, the quality of the skin, and other factors that our specialists discuss during your consultation. You may also choose to combine fillers with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
The specialized fillers offered at Vibrance include:
Restylane developed Defyne to treat deep facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, which are among the most common aging concerns we see. The unique cross-linking technology of the gel in Restylane Defyne is designed to help support your facial expressions—for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement.
Restylane Refyne is thicker than Defyne, and we use it to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Refyne provides flexibility and subtle support for laugh lines, with results that can last up to 12 months.
One of the most recent additions to the Restylane product line, Kysse is a lip augmentation filler that provides volume and smooths vertical lip lines. The results can last up to 12 months.
The age-related loss of volume in the cheeks is a common concern. Lyft is formulated specifically to minimize the hollowed-out appearance that occurs when patients reach their 40s and 50s.
Once a workhorse that was used to treat a range of concerns, JUVÉDERM Ultra is an effective option for treating “smile lines” around the mouth and restoring fullness to lips.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus
The particles within the Ultra Plus smooth gel filler are larger than those in JUVÉDERM Ultra. The filler itself is injected deeper into the skin to lift and smooth more severe folds and wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC
Similar to Ultra and Ultra Plus, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE’s gel is smoother than those fillers and produces softer results. It’s formulated using Vycross™ cross-linking technology, creating a filler that is more malleable and easier to inject. It allows for a softer “fill” and is especially effective at correcting fine lines and moderate to severe nasolabial folds. It is also more durable, lasting up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC
VOLBELLA is also formulated using Vycross technology, but the gel is much thinner than that of other JUVÉDERM fillers. It spreads easily and is ideal for adding volume to thin lips and minimizing the appearance of fine lines in the delicate skin under the eyes. It creates fuller lips that look natural and not too plump. VOLBELLA results can last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
VOLUMA is the first filler cleared by the FDA specifically for adding volume to the cheek area, which can begin to appear sunken as we age. It is injected deep into the skin and creates a more rounded contour of the cheeks, with results lasting up to 2 years.
RHA® 2 and RHA® 3
RHA fillers are the only hyaluronic acid-based fillers approved by the FDA for use in both dynamic and static wrinkles. This innovative product is more resilient and flexible than traditional HA fillers, enabling them to adapt to areas of the face where repetitive movements create lines and folds. RHA 2 and 3 fillers provide a more natural look when the face is at rest and in motion.
Similar to other fillers in the RHA Collection, RHA 4 is injected deeper into the skin to correct moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
