Types of Facial Fillers and Injectables
You’ve probably heard of some of these from friends, magazines and Hollywood news. Here are some of the fillers and injectables that Youthful Reflections can use to treat you and how they can be helpful in adding to your beauty: 

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Juvéderm® XC
  • Juvéderm® Ultra XC
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC


BOTOX® Cosmetic – a neuromodulator that acts by temporarily weakening muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkling of the skin.  It has been approved to temporarily improve frown lines that have appeared between your brows and address crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes. Results can be seen within 24 to 48 hours after your treatment, but it typically takes 1 – 2 weeks for optimal results.  Results will usually last 3 – 4 months.

Juvéderm® XC – a hyaluronic acid filler used to diminish parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, as volume is added to make these lines smoother. It has been proven to last up to a year. 

Juvéderm® Ultra XC – a hyaluronic acid filler used for treatment of thinning lips by adding volume to give the appearance of fuller lips. Natural looking, this product lasts up to a year. 

Juvéderm Voluma® XC – a hyaluronic acid filler used to treat age-related “midface volume loss”, Juvéderm Voluma® XC plumps up the cheeks to add contour and a more youthful appearance. Can last up to two years. 

Juvéderm Volbella® XC – a crystal-clear gel of hyaluronic acid that temporarily plumps up the lips for enhancement and smooths the lines around the mouth.  Can last up to a year.

Juvéderm Vollure™ XC – a hyaluronic acid filler that softens severe to moderate parentheses lines and wrinkles around the mouth by adding volume.  Results can last up to 18 months. 

KYBELLA® – fullness under the chin is reduced as fat cells are destroyed by this injectable solution.  Multiple treatments (2 – 3) may be required for optimal results. Once you reach your desired goal, no further treatment is needed, as the destroyed cells can no longer store fat. 

Youthful Reflections has an Aesthetic Nurse Injector, who is a skilled expert in the latest fillers and injectables.  She can help you address your concerns and will answer your questions, as she assists you in determining which non-surgical filler or injectable solution is right for you.
