DERMAL FILLERS | Lacamas Dental

Dermal Fillers Vancouver WA

Here at Lacamas Dental & Cosmetic the dermal fillers are a naturally-derived material that is directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. Depending on which area is treated the effects can last anywhere from eight months to two years and works best on the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Dr Scheel prefers Juvederm for the lips and nasolabial folds and Voluma for the Cheeks. Juvederm and Voluma products are naturally-derived fillers (the most widely known is hyaluronic acid) and they have a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction and produce a more natural result. Also, hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain more moisture and improve the texture of the skin. Once the filler starts to dissipate you need to go back in and get more filler injected to maintain results. Most people who get fillers will need at least one follow-up injection within a year.

Using Juvederm and Voluma you get an instant, amazing result but a small minority may experience bruising or swelling. Taking Arnica pills can reduce the swelling and dissipate bruising faster.

Don’t confuse dermal fillers with Botox. Although both procedures involve injections, Botox is most often injected around the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) to stop muscle movement that results in wrinkles. It has nothing to do with the plumping smoothing effect dermal fillers have.

Because they work in different manners, many people elect to get both Botox and dermal fillers—the combination can produce a remarkably younger-looking face. Call today to schedule a consultation today at 360 896 5150.
