The changes of aging go deeper than the skin, which is why soft tissue or dermal fillers play such an important role in the reversal of aging and in beautification and enhancement of facial assets. Today, patients want natural looking results with little or no downtime. 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 dermal fillers have the long term safety and reliability of non-animal ultrasmooth hyaluronic acid and last from 12-24 months. Those used by Dr. Sweeney are blended with lidocaine to make treatment that much more comfortable.
The SOFTLIFT is a treatment combining BOTOX Cosmetic injections in the forehead and around the eyes with JUVEDERM throughout the face, where needed to reverse hollowing and lift sagging.
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, jawline, 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 earlobes renewed and bony 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 lubrication for worn out knees, hips, shoulder and other joints.
The 4 V’s- VOLUMA, VOLIFT, VOLBELLA and most recently VOLUX for Versatile Volume Restoration
VOLUX with Lidocaine is the newest dermal filler from the JUVEDERM family of hyaluronic dermal fillers. It is Health Canada approved for use in the chin and jawline. It is used to improve definition, proportion and contours, in treatment areas where projection is needed. VOLUMA has already made its mark as a reliable and versatile filler for hollowing and for lifting sagging cheeks, brows, forehead and jowls. VOLBELLA is preferred for lip lines and thinning and for lip enhancement. Dr. Sweeney is also very pleased with its versatility in filling other fine lines and for delicate work such as under eye hollows. VOLIFT has found a place in smoothing the lower cheek hollows, nasolabial folds and marionette and smile lines.
The 4 V’s use an ultra smooth gel for a natural look and feel and safe reliable results.
