Dermal fillers offer a natural way to reduce creases and folds in the face, reversing the signs of aging and restoring natural contours. Some of the common areas treated are smile lines, marionette lines, lack of volume in the cheeks, the pre-jowl area, lip enhancement/hydration, and aging hands. There are many types of dermal fillers available in which your medical provider will be able to recommend which dermal filler would be best for you. As with all dermal fillers, individual results may vary.
Conditions Treated with Dermal Fillers in Edmonds
Dermal fillers offer virtually unmatched versatility. Varying formulations and densities allow for the precise treatment of a broad range of concerns in multiple areas. In contrast to other rejuvenating and contouring treatments, fillers require no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. Dermal fillers deliver immediate improvement in just a few minutes and results that last months to years.

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler proven to hydrate lips and correct perioral lines for up to 1 year. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC is a smooth gel specially designed using Allergan’s patented Vycross technology to gently restore fullness and shape to your lips, giving you natural-looking results that last. This filler is a great option for patients who are concerned with the lines around their lips (a.k.a “smoker’s lines”) and thin lips that would like to see correction without significant change in the size of their lips.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable hyaluronic acid-based gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. As we age, certain areas of our faces, namely the cheeks, start to lose volume and look flat or sunken. One of the best tools we now have for fighting that volume loss is the injectable filler JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC. This dermal filler gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile that can last for up to 2 years. Many times, by lifting the cheek area to a more youthful position, patients will notice that the deep folds around their nose and mouth are improved at well.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC are FDA-approved dermal fillers that add hydration, lift, and volume to many facial areas. When placed by one of Pūr Skin Clinic’s expert injectors, JUVÉDERM® provides rejuvenated, refreshed, and natural appearance to areas of the face that lack volume and hydration. JUVÉDERM® is a popular choice for treating nasolabial folds (a.k.a. “smile lines” or “parentheses”), lip augmentation, and oral commissures (a.k.a “puppet lines”) and can last up to 1 year.
VOLLURE™ XC is an injectable dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid that is FDA indicated for the treatment of moderate to deep facial folds, including the nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds, also called laugh lines, are the depressed lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth and tend to get deeper as we age.
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is considered a next-generation hyaluronic filler not only because of its improved longevity but also due to its enhanced, more natural-looking results. What makes JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC unique, however, is that the results regularly last 18 months or longer, which is about 50% longer than most other dermal fillers.
Like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® is a collection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers used to smooth lines and wrinkles and enhance volume in areas like the cheeks and lips. The Restylane® collection also includes varying formulations to target specific areas of concern. Restylane® offers specially-designed formulas for lip plumping, refining wrinkles around the mouth, cheek enhancement, and producing a more youthful appearance under the eyes.
If you want to appear more youthful-looking, without looking like you’ve had work done, then Sculptra® Aesthetic may be a good choice for you. Sculptra® Aesthetic is the only FDA-approved injectable that is proven to stimulate your own collagen; restoring the framework of the face, filling out any hollowness associated with aging, and improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a bio-stimulator made up of Poly-L-Lactic Acid that works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Sculptra® Aesthetic triggers the steady and gradual stimulation of collagen to restore sunken cheeks or temples, plump up the delicate skin of the décolletage, and even volumize the buttocks! The upcycle of collagen following a Sculptra® Aesthetic injection will continue for several months post-treatment and the results last for years. Depending on desired results, multiple treatments may be needed. Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment sessions are typically spaced 6-12 weeks apart.
What to expect after treatment with dermal fillers
There is no significant downtime with dermal fillers and you will notice an immediate softening of creases and folds, with continued collagen stimulation that will last 9-12 months on average. At Pūr Skin Clinic, we are proud to offer numbing and ice for our Edmonds dermal fillers patients to reduce the risk of bruising and for treatment comfort. Dermal fillers typically take about 1-2 weeks to “settle” before you can enjoy your final result!

Every patient reacts to the injection process differently. Common side effects are tenderness, swelling, and potential bruising to treatment sites which can last up to two weeks. Dermal fillers should not be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. By discontinuing the use of aspirin products, fish oil, and red wine a few days prior to your appointment, the likelihood and duration of side effects significantly reduces.
The longevity of your fillers will depend on the specific formula used in your treatment and how quickly your body metabolizes the solution. Some fillers last between six and 12 months, while others can take several years to dissolve.
