There are many different types of fillers. At Arizona Cosmetic Surgery Phoenix, Dr. Sacks Dr. Sacks has found one type of filler - Juvederm (p) to be very useful for his patients. It contains local anesthesia which makes the procedure more comfortable. The latest type of Juvederm has had the molecules altered so that the substance lasts longer.
Using a tiny needle the substance is easily introduced under the skin to smooth and fill wrinkles and facial defects.
Candidates for Juvederm

- Filling up creases and folds that naturally get worse with time
- Filling in depressed scars such as occur with acne.
Complications of Juvederm

- Insufficient fill - This is easily corrected with another treatment
- Overfill - If this occurs, it will self correct after a while as the Juvederm is not permanent
