Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Q & A

What do hyaluronic acid fillers treat?

Hyaluronic acid fillers plump up the skin and treat imperfections like:

  • Facial folds
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

They also add volume to your lips and restore the facial structure that begins to disappear as you age.

How do hyaluronic acid fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water to the skin, allowing it to hydrate and gain lost volume. When Dr. Irizarry injects these fillers into your skin, you immediately see results.

Dr. Irizarry treats your skin using a number of hyaluronic acid fillers, including:

Juvéderm Voluma®

Dr. Irizarry most often uses Voluma to contour and volumize your cheeks. Voluma lifts and repositions skin that has flattened and begun to sag to restore a more youthful appearance. Typically, results from Voluma last about 24 months.

Juvéderm Vollure®

Vollure is a filler designed to smooth wrinkles and soften facial lines. To produce results, Dr. Irizarry injects it into the lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose. Usually, your facial smoothing and softening last about 18 months.

Juvéderm Volbella®

With Volbella, you can smooth out vertical lip lines and add a touch of volume to your lips at the same time. Results from Volbella injections with Dr. Irizarry last about one year.

Are hyaluronic acid fillers right for me?

Hyaluronic acid fillers may be right for you if you’re unhappy with wrinkles or loss of volume in your skin and if you’re healthy. Hyaluronic acid fillers might not be a great fit if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you suffer from the following conditions:

  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Poor blood-clotting
  • Infection in the treatment area
  • Active oral or facial herpes
  • Allergies to any of the filler ingredients

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Irizarry to find out whether hyaluronic acid fillers are right for you.

Do hyaluronic acid fillers have side effects?

Because your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic acid fillers are one of the safest dermal filler options on the market. However, like other procedures, hyaluronic acid filler injections do have possible side effects at or around the injection site, including:

  • Bumps and lumps
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding

These side effects are typically temporary.
