Renew Your Look for the Holidays with Fillers

For many of us, the holiday season is a time to rejoice. It’s a time for friends and family, accomplishments, and future goals. With so many activities on many people’s social calendars, it’s natural to want to look and feel your best, whether it’s with a new hairstyle, new clothes, or a new outlook on life. Now is an excellent time to consider injectable aesthetic procedures to help you restore your young appearance. After a quick consultation with a dermatologist from our team, you’ll be ready to party in style, whether you pick Juvederm, Kybella, or any other dermal fillers, with results that last well into the holidays. Here are a few of our favorite fillers that will help renew your look for the holidays.

Juvederm Fillers

Folks are increasingly turning to their doctors for longer-term wrinkle-removal options. Juvederm is one of the most popular options. Juvederm is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. The Juvederm family includes a number of products that are utilized to help people deal with the facial symptoms of aging. Each product in the Juvederm range has a distinct bonding and hyaluronic acid content mixture. When injected into various places and depths, the products are each customized to target distinct problems such as wrinkles, fine lines, as well as sagging skin.


Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness, sometimes known as “double chin.” You and your specialists will work together to create a treatment plan that will help you improve your chin profile. Kybella® is injected into the fat under your chin many times during your treatment sessions. In two to four therapy sessions, you may see visible results. Up to six therapy sessions, spaced at least one month apart, may be given.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra is a novel injectable that stimulates the creation of collagen in the skin to help restore the cheeky plumpness of healthy skin, which helps to combat wrinkles and sagging skin. Collagen is a protein found in connective tissue that serves as a structural component. Its purpose is to keep the skin smooth, firm, and youthful. Collagen production declines with age, and wrinkles and sagging may appear. Drooping skin, hollowed cheeks, indentations, and depressions in the face are other symptoms of fat loss beneath the skin.

Side Effects of Dermal Fillers

Serious side effects of dermal fillers are very rare; however, if they do appear, you may experience any of the following:

  • Soreness at the injection site
  • Scarring and redness
  • Numbness in the treated region
  • Allergic reactions
  • Infections and itching
  • Eczema

Keep in mind that dermal fillers are used to treat conditions in different sections of the face in slightly different ways. They can also be used in tandem with one another as complementary treatments to help you achieve your goals. Each type of dermal filler has its own set of properties and uses. Some disperse out from the injection site, while others stay close by. One product may be good at adding volume to a large area, such as the cheeks or lips, while another may be good at filling in fine creases and wrinkles. It is advisable to talk to your dermatologist about all of your alternatives, as they can also ascertain whether you are safe to receive the procedures.
