HOW JUVÉDERM® WORKS

This facial filler works similarly to other brands of fillers on the market, with some note-worthy differences. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body and is an important part of supporting full and youthful skin. Hyaluronic acid can carry a significant amount of its own weight in water, which is why this ingredient is included in dermal fillers.

Unlike neuromodulators (such as Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) which moderate muscle movement, Juvéderm® and similar facial fillers add volume to the mid face, lower face, and even under the eyes. As we age, collagen depletes, skin become less firm, and the effects of gravity cause the cheeks and lower face to sag.

The effect can begin as a small change in your appearance, which causes you to look older than you are. Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin® cannot do what Juvéderm® does, which is plump up and fill the skin. For this reason, many cosmetic injectable treatment plans are a combination of facial fillers like Juvéderm® and neuromodulators.

During your treatment, our professional staff will inject Juvéderm® into specific areas where the filler will have the greatest impact. The Juvéderm® family consists of multiple different injectable fillers and what makes them unique is their density. Each density mimics different areas of your face and your injector will help determine what product or combination of products is best to correct your specific concerns.

THE BRYN MAWR DERMATOLOGY DIFFERENCE

We love to create beautiful, natural, and youthful-looking results for our cosmetic dermatology patients! With our help, you can look fabulously refreshed, instead of fake or overtreated. We understand how personal facial aesthetics are and respect your natural appearance when applying dermal fillers. We never overtreat; touch-ups are always a possibility, but creating unnatural results is a risk our professional team avoids at all costs.

Many of our patients are looking for aesthetic facial treatment that is non-invasive, comfortable, and comes with little to no downtime so they can get back to their busy lives and families.

Our skilled injectors use a gentle touch to apply Juvéderm® and provide all the information you need to enjoy a quick and comfortable recovery, including the application of cold compresses and medications that help reduce any bruising or swelling. Treatment can take less than an hour, and you can return home immediately after.

Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Christine Stanko, and her extensively trained aesthetic dermatology team look forward to helping every patient love what they see when they look in the mirror. During consultations, we take extra care to understand your skin routine, cosmetic treatment history, and determine your budget. Your treatment plan is designed to fit in these parameters.

THE WHOLE JUVEDERM® COLLECTION

Allergan has created the best known filler family on the market, and for good reason: their products help us create diverse and personalized results with beautiful consistency.

VOLUMIZE IT with Juvederm® Voluma! Let us wake up your face by lifting your cheeks, smoothing under eye circles, and defining your chin or jaw. Look back at pictures of yourself during your twenties and thirties; look at the elevation and contour of your cheeks. This is what we want to re-create for you – the joy of youth. Voluma has the highest density and hyaluronic acid concentration which makes it the perfect replacement for the highly structured areas of your face. When placed by and expert it creates subtle, but wowing result that can last up to two years.

PLUMP IT with Juvederm® Ultra and Volbella! Together, this dynamic duo can help mollify all of your lip concerns. Our filler experts can help create a more pillowy pout and a more charismatic kisser. Juvederm® Ultra is the perfect product to add subtle fullness and definition to the body of your lips without creating an unnatural “duck face.” Next Volbella swoops in to smooth vertical lips lines and provide the ideal complement to a youthful and refreshed appearance. These two injectables are softer and more malleable than Voluma to ensure soft smoochable lips.

SMOOTH IT with Juvederm® XC and Vollure! As the least dense of the Juvederm® family, these two products are fantastic options to naturally smooth out the lines that can form around your nose and mouth. A happy life is full of smiles and smirks, and as much as we love having fun, these expressions leave their mark on your face in a way that is less than endearing. If you struggle with distinct marionette lines or defined nasolabial folds that leave you looking weathered, ask us which product is designed for your face and get an instant reboot.


RADIESSE® & BELOTERO® BALANCE

Belotero Balance® is a natural, gel-based filler that is best used to smooth over superficial fine lines located just beneath the skin. Areas like vertical lip lines, smoker’s lines, frown lines, and acne scarring can benefit instantly from Belotero Balance® dermal filler. As we age, the skin loses its youthful appearance because the production of natural support structures diminishes. Over time, those structures such as hyaluronic acid, commonly called HA, begin to disappear, resulting in lines and wrinkles. With Belotero Balance® you can replace lost HA caused by the natural aging process because it instantly plumps the skin, and smooth the lines and wrinkles on your face.

Radiesse® is best used to volumize and add structure to cheeks, jawlines and temples. It is a unique, calcium-based product that over a period of months gets re-absorbed into your body leaving behind a natural scaffold for new collagen growth. Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down resulting in formation of facial lines and wrinkles and loss of facial volume.


THE RESTYLANE® FAMILY OF FILLERS

The Restylane Family of fillers is the major competitor for the Allergan Collection. Like the majority of the fillers on teh market, the Restylane line of products is formulated to act like your body's own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, restoring volume to your skin. They are safe, effective and diverse. So what makes them different and unique like you? Patented XpresHAn TECHNOLOGYTM focuses on flexible hyaluronic acid gels designed to give you the flexibility to show your natural range of facial expression. And the innovative NASHA© TECHNOLOGY - giving each product a unique particle size for tailored treatment - is unique to Restylane Silk, Restylane and Restylane Lyft. The providers of Bryn Mawr Dermatology appreciate the fine differences between products and brands in order to customize the filler treatment that will result in your customized results.

HOW DOES SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC WORK?

SLOW AND STEADY STRENGTH

Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable,synthetic material called poly-Llactic acid, which is graduallyand naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.

The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.

WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC?

REAL RESULTS THAT LAST

Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects.

Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance.

Collagen dietary supplements are meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of treatments are inconclusive.

Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months.

RESULTS APPEAR GRADUALLY OVER THE TREATMENT REGIME (TYPICALLY THREE INJECTIONS OVER THE COURSE OF THREE TO FOUR MONTHS) AND CAN LAST UP TO TWO YEARS.*

*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months.


THE Y LIFT

Bryn Mawr Dermatology is excited to offer the Y Lift in Collegeville and Villanova – a revolutionary approach to facial rejuvenation that involves no incisions and no downtime. Treatment is quick, effective, and is considered the premier liquid facelift. The Y Lift uses dermal fillers and an unprecedented technique to create new and improved facial structure that was either diminished over time or was weak to begin with. Unlike a facelift that stretches skin over an un-changed framework, and can result in  a pulled or waxy appearance, the Y Lift works from the inside out to produce naturally beautiful results that last for years. 

If you’ve experienced the common signs of facial aging, particularly drooping skin or volume loss in the lower or mid face, the Y Lift can restore youthful aesthetics and help you look your best. The team at Bryn Mawr Dermatology loves this treatment for our busy patients who want to look youthful and rejuvenated but do not want to devote significant time to extensive treatment and healing.

Call today to schedule your consultation for a non-surgical facelift at Bryn Mawr Dermatology!

WHAT IS THE Y LIFT?

The Y Lift is a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure, designed to add volume and lift to the cheekbone and under eye areas, give definition to the chin and jawline, and contour the upper neck. The process is quick, painless, and convenient, putting it in a category all its own. It is more substantial than other minimally invasive procedures designed to volumize and re-structure and less invasive than surgery that produces comparable results.  

This innovative procedure uses the same tried-and-tested dermal fillers that have been on the market for decades but in a new and unique way. The method of application and placement of filler are essential to building the smooth, natural and impressive results. It was developed by Dr. Yan Trokel and he has opted to be the sole teacher of this method to ensure that it is carried out as designed. 

We were lucky enough to be chosen as a group of elite injectors by Dr. Trokel to receive the intensive training required to properly produce the amazing results that only the Y Lift can. As one of less than 50 Certified Y Lift Providers, you can depend on seeing a revived, more youthful version of yourself after your Y Lift.

The technique used in this procedure is what lends it its name; refreshed aesthetics are created by following a Y-shaped pattern. The jaw and jowls are sculpted, and the mid face is lifted to combat facial aging, which is caused by drooping tissues that create heaviness and excess skin in this area. All of this is performed with cannulas – blunt tipped, flexible devices that serve to feed the filler under the muscle, directly on top of the bone, in order to replicate the structure that the bone itself produces naturally.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR Y LIFT PROCEDURE

During your procedure, our highly trained cosmetic professionals target specific areas to ensure maximum aesthetic results – first starting with the jaw and lower face, where patients experience the change of facial shape caused by the gradual depletion of bone and fat. Dermal fillers are injected here to plump and lift the drooping skin, mimicking the skeletal structure of your youth.

When treating the midface, a blunt-tip cannula is used to gently lift the underlying facial muscles, which have grown lax with age and no longer support youthful facial contours. Once the musculature is in the desired position, a filler is injected to maintain its shape. This is a quick process, and the entire appointment takes no more than 30 minutes.
