5 Things People Love About Facial Fillers

When you think about cosmetic injectables, your mind might go to Botox®. And while that’s definitely an effective way to banish dynamic wrinkles like the ones on your forehead or between your brows, it’s certainly not your only way to defy aging. 

Here at LH Spa & Rejuvenation in Livingston and Madison, New Jersey, Robert M. Olson, MD, and our team offer Juvéderm® facial fillers. These cosmetic injectables give you a wide range of benefits, making them an extremely popular option for anyone who wants to look their best through the years. 

Here are just five of the reasons so many people opt to explore facial fillers. 

1. They’re versatile

Facial fillers add volume wherever you want. That means that they can fill in hollows and lines that have developed with age, or add contour or fullness where you’ve always wanted it. 

With Juvéderm Voluma® XC, for example, we can add volume to your cheeks and chin, smoothing sagging skin and creating the youthful contours you want. With Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Volbella® XC, we can erase vertical lip lines and give you fuller lips. 

Long story short, if there’s any particular area you wish was fuller, smoother, or generally younger-looking, we can likely achieve your desired result with Juvéderm. 

2. The results last

While many other anti-aging treatments only deliver results that last for a few months, Juvéderm lasts at least six months and up to two years. Plus, whenever you notice that your results are starting to fade, you can come to us for a quick, convenient touch-up treatment. 

3. They’re customizable

If you think facial fillers have to leave you looking plastic and unexpressive, think again. We’re in full control over how much filler we apply. If you want natural-looking results, we can absolutely deliver that. Talk with us about your cosmetic goals so we can personalize your Juvéderm treatment to you. 

4. They’re quick and convenient to get

After our initial conversation about what you want to get out of treatment, the actual process of applying the Juvéderm takes just minutes. In fact, many people call this a lunchtime procedure because you can pop in, get your facial filler, then head back to your day. 

5. There’s no downtime

Juvéderm isn’t just quick and convenient to apply; it also doesn’t come with any recovery period. You might experience some bruising (which is why we generally recommend you don’t get treatment right before a big event). But many people apply a little makeup and head right back to work or whatever else they have on the agenda. 

If you’re ready to explore how these benefits of facial fillers could apply to you, contact our team so we can build you a personalized Juvéderm plan. To get started, call the LH Spa & Rejuvenation office nearest you.
