The changes of aging go deeper than the skin, which is why soft tissue fillers play such an important role in reversal of aging and in beautification and enhancement of facial assets. Today, patients want natural looking results with little or no down time. Combining Dr. Sweeney’s experience with the versatility of the Juvederm™ family of dermal fillers, patients can be confident in getting a great result with minimal recovery. Juvederm™ Ultra™, Ultra Plus™, Voluma™, Volbella™ and Volift™ all have the long term safety and reliability of non-animal ultrasmooth hyaluronic acid and last from 12-24 months; each is blended with lidocaine to make treatments more comfortable.
Treating aging, and more broadly, facial enhancement has developed far beyond the possibility of smoothing lines, wrinkles and folds; these products restore lost volume to the forehead and temples, cheeks, jaw line, chin and mouth area. They can also be used to reshape or enhance lips, the cheeks and chin, lighten dark under-eye circles and other forms of eye hollowing and to fill in some scars. Noses can be straightened non-surgically, the brow lifted, mouth Marionette folds and frowning improved, sagging ear lobes renewed and boney veiny hands softened.
As with Botox Cosmetic®, Dr. Sweeney has been treating patients with dermal fillers for facial aging and sculpting since 2003.She loves the creativity of this area of cosmetic practice and the delight it brings to patients’ lives.
Hyaluronic Acid is also used in other areas of medicine such as orthopedics where it is injected as a lubrication for worn out knees, hips, shoulder and other joints.
The 3 V’s- Voluma™, Volift™ and Volbella™ for Versatile Volume Restoration
Volift™ with Lidocaine, is the newest dermal filler from the Juvederm™ family of hyaluronic fillers. Voluma™ has made its mark as a great lifter for cheeks, foreheads and the jaw and jowls; and Volbella™ for lip lines and lip enhancement. Dr. Sweeney is also very pleased with its versatility in filling other fine lines and for delicate work. Volift™ has found a place in smoothing the lower cheek hollows and smile lines and in jaw and chin enhancement. The 3 V’s use an ultrasmooth gel for a natural look and feel.
