Uplifting Facial Rejuvenation

January has a ton of stuff happening, so be sure to keep up with our posts and event calendar, so you don’t miss any events and specials!  January 24th-25th we’re having an uplifting facial rejuvenation special on some of Dr. George’s favorite dermal fillers, so now is the time to contact us to reserve your spot!

We are having combo specials to give you an overall facial rejuvenation improvement on our dermal fillers Voluma and Juvederm.  While these injectable fillers are similar, they accomplish two very different things are are typically used in different areas of the face for improvement.

Over time, it is natural to experience a loss of volume where it once was in the mid-face.  The cheeks may flatten and the skin may sag a bit in areas it didn’t before.  Voluma is a hyaluronic filler that adds instant volume to the cheek and apex area giving a subtle lift and contour, while restoring volume.  The natural results of this dermal filler can last up to two year time, which is one of the many reasons we love it.  a simple Voluma treatment does a great job of restoring a youthful appearance to your face.

Juvederm, while in the same family of fillers as Voluma, is a great option for addressing deeper lines and wrinkles on the face, like the parenthesis or smile lines.  We like to refer to this filler as a sort of spackle for filling in areas of wrinkling, creating a softer smoother result.  This filler typically last anywhere from 12-18 months.

Our specials for this month are as follows:

• 2 Syringes of Voluma and 1 Syringe of Juvederm for $1950 (Savings of over $300!!)
•2 syringes of Juvederm and 1 syringe of Voluma package for $1825 (Savings of $250!!)

Our providers can guide you in the appropriate direction for your specific needs, and where you could benefit the most from the products.

Happy 2-year Anniversary Juvederm Voluma

Happy 2-year Anniversary to Juvederm Voluma!  Yes, it’s been two years since this revolutionary filler graced our faces with it’s presence.  Voluma has defied gravity as the only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to the cheek area where most have noticed age-related volume loss.  This month, WDC wants to focus on adding volume by celebrating the anniversary of Voluma with a 2-day cosmetic saving event on September 9th and 10th.

Why do we love Voluma at WDC?  Not only is it the only filler that is approved for adding instant natural-looing volume to the cheek area, but it is one of the longest lasting one’s as well.  Juvederm Voluma has been studied to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment! Dr. Rosalyn George and our PA staff are all thoroughly trained in a number of advanced techniques that are sure to give you the lift you’re looking for.

Dermal Fillers: The Basics

Although dermal fillers have been around for a while, some of you may still be uncertain if it’s the right next step.  While botox is a great solution for the dynamic, or movement wrinkles on your face, dermal fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse are great for those wrinkles that have established themselves in undesirable locations.  Here are the basics about what you need to know about dermal fillers.

What exactly do dermal fillers do? As we get older, our skin begins to lose its natural hyaluronic acid (HA), which causes our skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles in places like our nasolabial folds and marionette lines.  Dermal fillers restore that missing HA creating smoother and plumper skin in treated areas.

Who can benefit from filler? Filler is used to treat a number of facial issues that may be bothering you from smile lines, to restoring the plumpness in your cheek area or temples that have diminished over time.  Your health care provider at WDC can advise you on where you will see the best results and most improvements.

How long does it last?  While it varies by what product is used, most fillers last anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years!

How do you know what product to use?  Fillers have come a long way since they were first used as facial rejuvenation treatments.  It can get confusing as to what product may be best for you, but that’s where we come in! Your WDC provider will be able to inform you on what products are most effective in specific areas of your face.   The best results come from using the right one correctly, so having a trained provider perform your procedure is imperative.

Is there any downtime? Filler is a simple, non-surgical procedure there is minimal downtime.  Some may experience mild swelling with the potential of bruising.  If you do get a bruise it can last up to a week, but is typically covered well with makeup.  Results are seen immediately, making dermal fillers one of our favorite procedures– it’s easy to fit into a busy schedule and requires little maintenance!

How drastic are the results?  Your appearance will ultimately be driven by the techniques and amount of product used, but at WDC we are known for our noticeable, yet natural results.  Less is always more when it comes to our philosophy on treatments. With the advanced treatment techniques at WDC, we have gotten away from simply filling in lines, but are able to place the product in certain areas to give you natural and effective results.

Dermal fillers can give you that youthful look for a fraction of what a surgical procedure with cost, all in just a 30-minute appointment! WDC has been recognized by Allergan, the maker of Botox, as a Diamond account, which represents the top 3% of practices in the nation. Dr. Rosalyn George has also been identified by Allergan as a trainer for Botox, Juvederm and Voluma and we are ranked the top volume practice for these treatments in Eastern NC!  All of our providers are experienced and trained in cosmetics so don’t hesitate to contact any of them for a free consult, or if you’re ready to take the next step, we are holding a cosmetic event December 2nd-5th, giving you great discounts on our dermal filler and Botox treatments.

I’ve tried Botox, am I ready for a Filler?

We know most of you are aware of the many great benefits of Botox, but did you know that you can also fight the appearance of the aging face with dermal filler treatments such as Juvederm and Voluma?

As we age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring molecule, in our skin.  This causes our skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like the parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.  Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of HA.  Using a dermal filler like Juvederm or Voluma is an effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, restoring volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.    Still have questions on filler? Here are a few answers to the questions you may have when thinking, “I’ve tried Botox, am I ready for Filler?”

  • How would I know if I could benefit from a dermal filler? – Because everyone’s skin ages differently Filler may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas from smile lines and vertical lip lines to volume restoration in your cheeks.  The good news is that Juvederm or Voluma can soften those lines after just one treatment.
  • How does it work? – Filler is injected under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis restoring HA in your skin – adding volume and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.  In some products such as Sculptra, the injection actually stimulates the natural production of collagen in your body.
  • I don’t like needles, what is the treatment like? – The procedure is quick and easy!  When you arrive a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to numb the treatment area before the injections.  Your experienced healthcare provider will then ease the filler under your skin where wrinkles and folds occur.  Your entire visit usually takes just 30 minutes.
  • Is it expensive? – The cost of filler is reasonable especially compared to more involved procedures like plastic surgery.  It’s priced per syringe and the benefits can last months. The Brilliant Distinctions program from Allergan, makers of Juvederm, Botox, and Voluma also offers exclusive benefits for instant savings off your next treatment or other participating products.
  • How long does it last? – Just one treatment with Juvederm can smooth away your wrinkles for up to 12 months. Voluma provides natural- looking results that last up to 2 years
  • How different will I look?- Both Juvederm and Voluma will give you natural looking results.  Results everyone will notice but no one will know.  Your appearance will ultimately be driven by the techniques and amount of product used.  At Wilmington Dermatology Center we are known for our noticeable, yet natural results.  Individuals who looked like they have been excessively filled and don’t appear natural have not been treated in our office.
  • Will I have down time? – Because Filler is a simple, non-surgical procedure there is minimal downtime with swelling and bruising and results are seen immediately.  Another reason why we love it – it’s easy to fit into a busy schedule and requires little maintenance!

Trust your Filler treatment to the experts.   Contact our office today to schedule your free consultation appointment with Dr. Rosalyn George and her highly trained team including Karin Hipp, PA-C and Melanie Adams, PA-C.  Dr. Rosalyn George is a certified trainer for Botox, Juvederm and Voluma and was one of only two physicians in NC selected for the Voluma Facial Aesthetics Advisory Board.  There is a reason why Wilmington Dermatology Center has been identified as a Diamond account with Allergan, which represents the top 2% of practices in the nation by volume…the reason – great results.

Everything you wanted to know about Juvederm Voluma

The recent and first ever FDA approval for filler indicated to increase volume in the cheeks has stirred up quite the buzz!  We are, among many, excited about Juvederm Voluma and here’s why!

October 23, 2013 the FDA approved the first and only filler to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area, Juvederm Voluma.   Voluma helps create a more youthful appearance to the face and provides natural- looking results that last up to 2 years!

According to the 2013 American Society for Dermatological Surgery (ASDS) Consumer Survey, one of the top reasons people choose to undergo a cosmetic procedure is because they want to look as young as they feel and sagging facial skin was a top concern.  The great news is that now there’s a solution to address this concern… Juvederm Voluma!  Voluma helps create a more youthful appearance to the face in adults age 21 and over by restoring volume in the cheek area.  It’s a non-surgical treatment requiring little downtime.   Made from a modified form of Hyaluronic Acid, Voluma is a smooth gel injected into the cheek area to gently lift the skin and temporarily correct age-related volume loss.

Pricing for Voluma hasn’t been confirmed quite yet, but Dr. Rosalyn George has completed her initial training and the product should be on its way soon.   We are thrilled to be one of the first to offer Wilmington, NC Juvederm,  and we looking forward to its arrival!
