We all have different concerns when it comes to our appearance. Whether it be thin lips or smile lines, we tend to analyze our faces and want to fix what we can’t quite change on our own. Knowing the filler options available, and discussing your concerns with Dr. Koger, can make the treatment process easier. Let’s go over some popular concerns and suggest a filler that might be right for you.
Juvederm® Hyaluronic Acid Filler
The Juvederm® family of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are some of the most popular fillers on the market. HA is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that bonds to water to add volume in areas of the face that should be full and plump, like the lips and cheeks. Each filler – Ultra XC, Voluma®, Vollure™, and Volbella® – has a different formulation to help patients with different concerns. These fillers differ from Botox®, which freezes the muscles under the skin instead of adding volume to areas just beneath the skin.
“I Lost Volume in My Face”
As we get older, the fat in our face naturally depletes in volume leaving our cheeks to appear flatter. This mid-face volume loss can also make the skin sag. Voluma is a filler designed to create volume in the cheek area resulting in a more plump and contoured facial appearance.
Ask Dr. Koger about Voluma®.
“My Smile Lines are too Deep”
Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, run from the bottom of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. As we age and the skin begins to sag more, these lines tend to get deeper and worsen with actions such as smiling, laughing and frowning. Vollure is a great option for filling these types of deeper folds and creases.
Ask Dr. Koger about Vollure™.
“I Want Fuller, Natural Looking Lips”
Maybe you were not born with full lips, or maybe your lips have gotten smaller with age. Either way, you can achieve full and pouty lips. Juvederm XC does a fantastic job creating soft and natural lip volume and improving definition and shape

“I Hate My Vertical Lip Lines”
Vertical lip lines are a common sign of aging as we lose volume naturally in our face and lips. It can also be caused by repetitive motions of sipping on a straw or smoking a cigarette. These problems are common to have; however, they are very bothersome to our patients. Therefore, we suggest using a filler such as Volbella, which adds subtle volume to the the lip area without creating a lot of volume to the lip itself.
Ask Dr. Koger about Volbella.
