Dermal filler injections are among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States with over a million injections performed every year. Within the dermal filler category, hyaluronic acid fillers are by far the most popular due to their good safety profile and versatility. Two filler manufacturers offer hyaluronic acid fillers–Restylane and Juvederm. Both are about equal in usage and most providers offer both. Northwest Face & Body offers the best Juvederm Bellevue and Kirkland provides.
Juvederm is a type of cosmetic injectable known as a dermal filler. It is injected for two main purposes: to fill hollows and wrinkles or to augment areas of the face. Primarily used on the face, dermal fillers like Juvederm are among the top non-surgical procedures for anti-aging. With millions of filler injections performed every year, it is an extremely popular and versatile tool for looking younger and achieving your ideal facial aesthetic.
Within facial fillers, some subcategories refer to what the filler is made out of. Juvederm belongs to the largest and most used classification: hyaluronic acid fillers. This means that Juvederm is lower risk than semi-permanent fillers and can treat more places such as the lips.
The master injectors at Northwest Face & Body are masters at using Juvederm to artfully augment and fill in facial features. Northwest Face & Body provides the best Juvederm Bellevue and Kirkland offers.
Juvederm has many applications across the face. Some of the areas Juvederm can treat include:
Patients can usually treat multiple areas at once. Juvederm also pairs well with neurotoxin treatment such as BOTOX or Dysport. Your master injector will discuss which areas you are a candidate for treatment and the best Juvederm filler for each area.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, the largest concentrations of which are in the eyes and joints. Therefore, while rejection or allergy to the filler is possible, it is highly unlikely. Another major benefit of hyaluronic acid filler is that they have a natural reversal agent, hyaluronidase.
When injected, it breaks up the filler. If you experience major side effects or complications or end up unhappy with your new look, there is an easy antidote. This also increases the safety of hyaluronic acid fillers when compared with other types of fillers. If occlusion (the injection of filler into a blood vessel) or an adverse event occurs, it can be immediately addressed in the office.
While it may not seem like an advantage at first, the temporary nature of hyaluronic acid fillers allows patients to stop treatments whenever they want, try out various filler options, and try out different looks each time. This experimentation allows patients to find the exactly right filler option and technique for them.
Juvederm makes a few different fillers that each have a slightly varied consistency and tend to be used in different areas. The main Juvederm offerings are Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Juvederm Voluma. Your master injector can discuss each option with you in detail and help determine which is best for the area you are treating and your goals.
The first step for undergoing Juvederm filler injections in Bellevue is to attend a consultation with a master injector. At this appointment, your master injector will ask you about your goals, medical history, history with fillers, and lifestyle. They may also briefly examine the area to evaluate the skin quality, thickness, and other factors that influence the filler choice and process.
If they believe you are a good candidate for your chosen procedure, they will discuss the many fillers you have to choose from. In some cases, you may undergo filler injections the same day. Otherwise, you can schedule your appointment at your convenience or before leaving the office.
First, your master injector will prep the injection sites. This involves disinfecting the areas with alcohol and cleansing them of any makeup or environmental debris. After this, they will likely apply topical numbing cream. This will sit for around ten to twenty minutes. During this time, your injector will prepare the Juvederm.
Your master injector will then begin the filler injections. Depending on the treatment, they may use a needle or cannula. If using a needle, they will start injections immediately. With a cannula, they will make a small entry point for the cannula using a small needle. After inserting the needle or cannula they will slowly inject the filler. They may move the needle within the injection point or inject at multiple sites to add volume evenly for the ideal results.
For most areas, the injections themselves do not take longer than about ten to fifteen minutes. You can have multiple areas treated at the same time. Along with the topical numbing cream, the Juvederm contains a small amount of lidocaine to help ease the filler as it is injected.
In the days following the injections, you may notice some common side effects such as:
For the most part, these side effects should clear up in a week or two. For a day or two following Juvederm injections, your master injector may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, alcohol, and certain blood-thinning medications and supplements.
Your filler will continue to settle for about two weeks. If you still notice lumps, unevenness, or the result does not fit your goals after two weeks, our master injectors can perform a quick touch up.

Jowling is the sagging of jowls on the lower face, and the first sign of this is marionette lines. These pesky lines tend to appear around age 35 or above. It can make the lower face feel heavy and look prematurely aged. Though, often, the marionette lines form before the patient is a candidate for a facelift. This procedure can remove marionette lines long term. Instead of leaving them, dermal fillers are the go-to treatment to help disguise marionette lines. The injectors at Northwest Face & Body provide the best marionette line filler Bellevue and Kirkland offer.
The marionette lines are a wrinkle that forms at the corners of the mouth and extends downward toward the chin. Often, they are not too long, but may drag down the corners of the mouth. This can cause a perpetual frown or unapproachable look that many patients are bothered by.
The lines get their name from marionette string puppets which have lines on each side of the mouth. The human form generally forms over several years. Around the age of 20, your skin slows collagen production more each year. This can contribute to thinner skin and volume loss in the lower face, and, thus, the formation of marionette lines.
Marionette lines have several possible treatment options. The right one for you will depend on various factors such as the severity of your marionette lines, your goals, medical history, other conditions or desired treatments, and your preferences. The marionette lines can be addressed with both non-surgical and surgical procedures. Possible treatment options include:
There are also at-home treatments and things you can do every day to prevent marionette lines. Examples include maintaining good skincare, eating a skin-friendly diet, using retinol, staying hydrated, and using anti-aging serums.
Before undergoing marionette line filler in Bellevue, you will meet with an injector at Northwest Face & Body. During this free, no-obligation consultation, your injector will review your goals for treatment and medical history. They will also perform a quick physical examination of the face. This will help them determine the right treatment for you and if you are a candidate for marionette fillers.
If your injector believes that you are a good candidate for marionette line filler and it is the best way to proceed, they will go on to discuss the treatment and filler options with you. Together, you will pick the ideal filler. Patients usually do not undergo treatment the same day, but can in certain circumstances. Before leaving your injector may provide preparation instructions if necessary.
The first step for performing your marionette filler injections is to clean and disinfect the injection sites. Your injector may then apply numbing cream based on your preferences. When you are properly numb, they will then begin the injections.
The injections may be done with either a needle or a cannula. They will slowly maneuver the filler to naturally lift and fill the marionette lines. This can also help lift the corners of the mouth and you will see nearly an instant result. Once they finish one side, your injector will move to the other and repeat the process.
Finally, your injector may lightly massage the filler into place to ensure it settles well and is as free from lumps and bumps as possible. Before you leave, they will also clean the injection sites if necessary.
Following injections of dermal fillers into the marionette lines, there is no recovery. However, your injector may recommend some small changes to your routine for a few days to promote the best possible results. Some marionette line filler aftercare instructions may include:
Generally, one or two syringes are used for the entire treatment. The amount of filler you require will depend on the thickness of the filler and the severity of the marionette lines.
Yes, but only to an extent. If you have a lot of extra skin along the jowls, the filler may actually accentuate it instead of hiding it. If you have only the early signs of jowling, marionette line filler is a good option for lifting the jowls. Your injector can help you determine what treatment is best for you based on your anatomy and goals.
Sometimes, yes, cheek filler will lift the skin enough to reduce the appearance of marionette lines. This will not work if you have deep marionette lines. However, patients who are seeing the early formation of marionette lines or who have lost significant volume in the cheeks may be good candidates for cheek filler to help the marionette lines.
Nearly every dermal filler could fill and lift the marionette lines. Hyaluronic acid fillers are Sculptra are among the most commonly used in the area. If you are new to filler, your injector will likely recommend a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. They are completely reversible and the safest option. Examples of hyaluronic acid fillers good for the marionette lines include:
Sculptra is a longer lasting option. It is not reversible, but it can last up to two years and helps promote collagen production. Sculptra may be a good fit if you have deeper lines or are familiar with the product or filler injections.
The cost of Bellevue marionette line filler depends on the chosen filler and how much is required. Patients can expect to use at least one syringe of filler. The cost of one syringe of some of the popular marionette line filler options include:
