is a hyleronic acid, a gel substance that is injected into the deep tissues of the skin to help fill in lines and wrinkles. Um, there are multiple, uh, different fillers on the market. Now, the one we primarily use here at revitalize medical and Tulsa is Juvederm. These are FDA approved products and, uh, we do free personalized consultations to determine which filler is right for you. Uh, the most popular a filler for lip injectibles, um, which is also my favorite to inject in the lips is Juvederm ultra as well as Volbella. Juvederm ultra comes in a prepackaged one ml syringe and is used in the lips to give the lip structure, especially for people who have a smaller lips to create a good base of volume. And then Volbella, which is a softer gel. A substance can be injected for finesse of the lips and those come in a prepackaged 0.55, uh, Sarah and l syringe out as well as a one ml prepackaged one ml syringe. Um, people who, um, do have smaller lips. Again, I recommend starting with ultra for a good volume, a good base of volume. Um, but then, um, returning to our office approximately every two to three weeks to monitor progress and fill the lips gradually to the desired effect. Um, I do not feel that placing multiple syringes in the lip, uh, at one time is beneficial for the patient and can sometimes look unnatural. Uh, patients tend to get good results by gradually increasing, um, their dose, uh, slowly.
The lip filler procedure is very tolerable for patients as I do use a compound and topical numbing cream, uh, that is applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure. It is then wiped off. The patient uses a mouthwash, uh, to protect against any of bacteria. And, uh, a normal antiseptic technique is used, um, to clean the lips, to clean the lips.
At that time, the lips are, um, injected slowly and the patient will see immediate results. They typically have swelling for approximately two to three days. And normal risk factors include bruising, swelling, soreness, bruising, swelling and soreness. A patient is welcome to use Arnica pre procedure and post procedure topically and or orally as well as using ice and antiinflammatories for any soreness or bruising.
Um, other areas of Juvederm filler that are using the Tulsa, uh, that are used in Tulsa are Juvederm voluma. Juvederm voluma has a good viscosity, uh, which spreads a little bit more evenly and is a great for tear trough filler as well as cheek volume and a Chin volume to hide the jowl.
Um, it is also used really nicely and a nonsurgical, a nose job, uh, injected at the bridge of the nose and in small amounts at the tip to even out any, um, knows deformity. Again, normal injection, um, antiseptic technique is used and again, normal risk or I’m sorry, normal, uh, side effects postprocedure um, are the same. Juvenile ultra can also be used for the nasal labial folds and the deeper lines around the mouth.
And then, uh, the lure, the lure is also available for the nasal labial or I’m sorry, the um, yeah, nasal labial folds.
As an easily injectable smooth material that has a low affinity for water. So immediate results. Our, our, um, typically a final results period. All other fillers used besides Valore have a higher affinity for water. And so it will increase the absorption rate, um, of moisture and a increase in volume, uh, over time. Timeframe of Filler as a, I’m sorry, duration of filler is as follows, a ultra approximately 12 months lure, approximately 18 months, Voluma, approximately 24 months and Volbella between 12 and 18 months.
Again, Juvederm products are all FDA approved and primarily used it revitalized medical spa, Tulsa and Alamosa.
