Let’s Talk Dermal Fillers

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Dermal Fillers added to create pouty lips

When people think of reversing the aging process and starting the journey to a smoother, younger-looking face, they often think of Botox. While Botox can smooth wrinkles and make you look years younger, dermal fillers can address issues Botox can’t. Let’s talk dermal fillers. Dermal fillers lift and smooth deep wrinkles and folds by adding volume to the face for a fresher look.

As we age, natural collagen production decreases, making skin less elastic. Due to a lack of hyaluronic acid (HA) production, skin becomes drier, thinner, and less able to repair itself. Therefore, wrinkles and lines appear. The dermal filler injection procedure involves injecting gel that mimics your own naturally occurring HA through a tiny needle into the skin to add volume and freshness to the face.

There are many different types of fillers. Which one is best for you? Read on.

Juvederm Ultra

The softest dermal filler in the Juvederm family, Juvederm Ultra is injected into the dermis layer of the skin and used to treat mild to medium-depth wrinkles located from your nose to the corners of your mouth. It also smooths out depressed scars and enhances lips. Juvederm Ultra treatments are usually relatively painless and quick. This is the ideal treatment for anyone seeking to smooth mild to medium-depth wrinkles or plump areas with minor skin depression or fat loss. Results will last up to 12 months.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker version of the Juvederm Ultra. It’s used to fill in depressed areas in the cheeks and correct deeper facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Ultra Plus is ideal for those looking to smooth deep folds and wrinkles or plump areas with deep skin depression or fat loss. Results usually last up to 12 months.


Volbella is a blend of different molecular weights of HA that creates subtle, long lasting volume. A member of the Juvederm family, Volbella is used to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth. Since it contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel, it is also used to fill in acne scarring on the face, and even smooth out the delicate under eye area. Volbella usually lasts up to 12 months.


Vollure is the middle child of the Juvederm clan. It combines a perfect mix of spreadability and durability allowing for more natural facial expressions and movements after injection. It’s ideal for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines as well as filling in moderate wrinkles and refreshing the lower part of the face. The treatment can last up to 18 months and has been found to be the longest-lasting dermal filler for nasolabial folds.


The thickest and strongest gel of the Juvederm family, Voluma is ideal for deeper injections into the cheeks. It gives your face a nice lift and boost of supple volume. If you’re looking for a natural contour and a defined, youthful look, Voluma is for you. No downtime is needed after the injection and it can last up to two years.

Whether you’re suffering from a lack of collagen production, acne, or other effects of the aging process, dermal fillers can give you a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. They are used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.

Men Love Botox Too!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016


Man Having Botox Treatment

Botox is not just for women anymore; men love Botox too! More and more people are getting Botox injections, from Hollywood celebrities to the soccer mom next door, but it might surprise you to know that one of the fastest growing segments is men. So what is the reason for men and Botox these days? Many men like to take care of themselves with diet and exercise and like women, they want to look their best too. Almost 400,000 men got Botox in 2013. That’s up 310-percent from a decade prior and according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 men received Botox injections in 2014, marking a 337 percent increase since 2000. In addition, over 90,000 men received fillers, an 86 percent increase since 2000. “In the last few years, there has been a surge of men seeking minimally invasive facial rejuvenation,” Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Neavin tells PEOPLE. “More than ever, men are seeking beauty maintenance in the form of fillers and Botox because when they are properly administered, they work so well to create natural looking results with zero ‘evidence’ or downtime.” While creases have always graced men’s faces, dermatologists say there are a number of reasons why so many men are going under the needle now. A large part of it has to do with the fact that these kinds of aesthetic procedures are becoming more acceptable. Men and women alike want to look younger. It can be for self esteem reasons, or perhaps to look a little younger to get a job more easily. Let’s face it first impressions are everything! Botox is not just for women anymore, men love Botox too! Whatever the reason, male or female there is no shame it wanting look your best. Bring you guy into Belladerm this June and get 10 units of Botox free.  Call us to schedule your complimentary couple appointment at 763-494-9905 today! Happy Father Day!

Three Non-surgical Ways to Rejuvenate Your Face this Summer

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

You may have heard it before, 40 is the new 30 and 50 is the new 40. This is much more that a new frame of mind, its about your visual age verses your chronological age. You do not have to look your age anymore – with safe and effective nonsurgical cosmetic procedures you can look years younger. And you can do it with little to no down with these three non-surgical ways to rejuvenate your face this summer.

  1. BOTOX® / Dysport® 

    BOTOX® is one of the most recent and most exciting advances for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. BOTOX® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. This is done in a way that will not alter your natural expression and features. It takes just a few minutes and normally lasts about 3-4 months.

    Visit the BOTOX® website to try the Treatment Visualizer.

  2. Dermal Fillers and Injectables

    Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvéderm® and Radiesse® are being used more and more to help reverse the changes associated with aging. As you age, sun damage and other factors can reduce the amount of HA (hyaluronic acid) in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume — creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. The goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state. Dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts and are being used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss. When scheduling your appointment make sure your calendar allows for the possibility of swelling for 3-5 days (especially the first treatment). Visit the Juvéderm® site to view before and after images.

  3. HydraFacial™

Detoxify, Rejuvenate, Protect

HydraFacial offers a variety of serums to specifically target your skin issues, including:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne
  • Brown spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Early aging fine lines and wrinkles.

This is a revolutionary skin treatment that gently clears away imperfections and improves the look and feel of your skin. HydraFacial is an advanced non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that quickly and easily delivers results without the use of lasers or harsh chemicals. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. HydraFacial targets fine lines and wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyper pigmentation and brown spots.

People are taking better care of themselves and they are living much longer than they did decades ago.  During the twentieth century, life expectancy rose dramatically amongst the world’s wealthiest populations from around 50 to over 75 years. Since people are living much longer nowadays they deserve to look as good as they feel.

We can customize a non-surgical beauty treatment that is right for you. The timing couldn’t be better to check out some of these options. Take a look at our Beauty in the Box offer:

Not Just For the Ladies

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

The growing trend continues.  Numbers are on the rise for men undergoing aesthetic procedures like BOTOX.  Sometimes, it is the special woman in their lives who urge them to consider it and other times, it is just because they are noticing a more tired appearance in the mirror.  Men have a strong need to feel confident in the way they look, too.  Especially when it comes to the workplace, men are boosting their confidence by undergoing a simple procedure that takes minutes, but has a great impact.

The parents of the baby boomers elected to ‘grow old gracefully’ because they really had no other choice. This generation does have a choice — and due to the popularity and safety of most cosmetic procedures, men have decided to improve their appearance as much as women do. It is common for men to be concerned about wanting a very natural look so that it won’t be obvious that they had something done.  Most men want to look refreshed and well-rested.  A common treatment area is the 11’s between the eyebrows.  As we age, they can give a continuous angry, tired or frustrated look to the face.  Even a subtle change can make a big difference in how these men feel about themselves.

Men who have cosmetic procedures are just as happy as women with the results and are just as likely to return for more. You won’t hear them talking about it like women, though.  You’d probably be surprised to find out how many men you know have had some sort of cosmetic treatment.  It just doesn’t come up in conversation and they are less likely to admit that they have needed anything done to improve their looks. That is changing, too.  Former Olympic superstar Mark Spitz has been speaking out for a couple of years to encourage men to consider cosmetic procedures as part of their overall life regimen so they can look and feel their best.  As a spokesperson for Allergan, he’s been happy to share his experience.  He says, “BOTOX has helped me feel more positive about the way I look and feel. When you’re confident, you feel better and you attract people that are positive around you. It’s a contagious emotion.”

We’d love to hear from you.  Are you a guy willing to share your experience? Are you a woman who wishes her man would look into a cosmetic procedure? Do you think it is taboo for men?
