We all experience changes in our appearance as we age. Thin lips, sagging skin, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in the face can undermine our natural beauty and self-confidence. One of the best treatments for these cosmetic issues is dermal fillers. At NAWI Wellness Center in Naples, FL, we offer a wide range of injectables to fit everyones unique needs.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, chin, hands, feet, and other body parts to get rid of wrinkles and other common aesthetic concerns. They usually come in the form of a gel, which is injected into strategically chosen spots. There are countless filler options, so each patient can get a customized treatment that addresses their individual concerns.
Juvederm is one of the most popular brands of fillers. Juvederm products are made with hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and doesn’t cause any negative reactions or side effects. HA fillers can effectively treat a wide variety of skin concerns, from thin lips to wrinkles and lines. Unlike some other injectables, Juvederm products can last for a year or more, so the treatment is both cost-effective and time-saving.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
The traditional Juvederm products are called Ultra and Ultra Plus. When injected in strategic spots of the patient’s face, these fillers smooth out fine lines around the mouth, nose, and eyes. They can also be used for lip augmentation. While Ultra produces subtle and natural-looking results, Ultra Plus is often used to create a more dramatic effect or to treat deeper, more pronounced wrinkles.
Voluma is an innovative product that was specifically designed to treat a loss of volume in the mid-face. As we age, we often lose the plump appearance of the cheeks, and we start to look more tired and unhealthy. After receiving Voluma injections, patients regain the fullness in their cheeks and instantly look more youthful. Because this gel is very thick and makes use of cross-link technology, the results can last for up to two years.
Volbella and Vollure
Volbella and Vollure both use similar cross-link technology to Voluma, but they are thinner. Therefore, they are more appropriate for smoothing out fine lines in the face, or for augmenting the lips. If these treatments are chosen, patients can expect to return to the clinic every 12-18 months.
Just like Juvederm, the Restylane product line is produced with hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient. The two types of fillers are very similar, but the main difference is the consistency and the shape of the particles. While Juvederm is smoother, Restylane is more granular, which makes it somewhat more long-lasting. When you come to the clinic, we can determine which option is better for your skin type and cosmetic concerns.
Refyne and Defyne
Refyne and Defyne are mostly used to treat the skin folds around the mouth, called marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Refyne is used on people who have fine to moderate lines, while Defyne can treat even those patients who have severe wrinkles and folds. Both injectables are designed to create a natural look and allow people to retain their facial movements.
Restylane Kysse is a filler that makes use of XpresHAn Technology to produce natural, smooth results. This treatment is mainly applied to the lips, so it is ideal for people who would like to plump up and augment this facial feature. Kysse can improve the shape and color of the lips for up to one year at a time.
While double chins are often caused by excess weight, they can also be the result of genetic factors. If you can’t get rid of your double chin through exercise and a healthy diet, you should consider getting a Kybella injection. This treatment is based on deoxycholic acid, which breaks down the fat cells under your chin and results in a permanent reduction of the tissue. At the clinic, we often combine Kybella with Trusculpt to produce the best results possible.
The face isn’t the only body part that suffers from the effects of aging. Many people also experience wrinkling and sagging in other body parts, for example, the hands, the feet, and around the knees. Sculptra is a type of injectable that stimulates the production of collagen under the skin and therefore repairs the underlying tissue. It is usually combined with Secret RF, and in most cases, three appointments are needed.
How It Works
If you’re interested in dermal fillers, you should reach out to us and book an initial consultation. We will then evaluate your aesthetic concerns, suggest the best injectables for your needs, and come up with a suitable treatment plan.
When you arrive for your filler session, we will numb the treatment site to ensure you don’t feel any pain. Many fillers also contain lidocaine which provides a further analgesic effect. Then, we will mark the injection sites and perform the injections. Once this process is complete, you can return home and resume your regular activities almost straight away. However, you should avoid anything that heats up your skin, such as saunas or hot tubs.
Who Is This Right for?
Almost anyone who is worried about the shape of their lips, the effects of aging, or stubborn tissue under their chin can benefit from injectables. However, we will have a look at your medical history to make sure you don’t have a condition that could interfere with your treatment and recovery. People who have an active infection at the treatment site or who are currently pregnant should delay their sessions.

With the help of dermal fillers, patients can get rid of issues such as thin or uneven lips, wrinkles, sagging skin, a double chin, or a loss of volume in the cheeks. This form of treatment is minimally invasive, so it doesn’t require a stay at the hospital or a lengthy recovery period. What’s more, most fillers last for a year or more, so they are low-maintenance. The best way to find out which product is best for you is to speak to us directly.
