Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma® *, Restylane®, Sculptra®**, Boletero Balance®, and Prevell Silk® are dermal fillers; an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin. Once injected, smoothing instantly lines and wrinkles in your face. These fillers are made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it plumps and fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction Dermal Fillers made with hyaluronic acid have unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. This makes the result predictable and natural. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
This is definitely our favorite tool for instant softening or removal of wrinkles. Come in with your wrinkles and leave without them. Super simple and always a predictable, natural result. Takes 10 years off instantly. BEST treatment for those upper lip wrinkles.
How quickly does filler work? The results from a filler injection occur immediately and reach their maximum at about 2 weeks post injection.
Will my wrinkles disappear completely? Depending on the location of the wrinkle and the amount of filler used you can expect approximately 75% reduction in the appearance of the wrinkle.
Why would I choose this over some of the other fillers? Hyaluronic acid filler is really for fine areas of superficial wrinkling like the lines above the lip or the lines beside the nose where you want a very natural result. Additionally, it is great for cheeks and other areas of volume loss. Because the level of filling is easier to control with hyaluronic acid, it is easier to get a natural result with this new technology than the older poly lactic acid and calcium fillers.
How long does it last? Depending on which filler dermal fillers generally lasts around 9-12 months. *hyaluronic filler grows and lasts approximately 2 years, **Calcium Collagen filler lasts approximately 2 years all others are hyaluronic acid and last approximately 9-12 months.
Does it hurt? As with any injection, there is some discomfort during, but not after the treatment. If you arrive 15 min early to the appointment, we can use some topical anesthetic to minimize the sensation.
How long will the procedure last? Depending on the number of wrinkles that you wish to have filled, an appointment generally lasts 30-50 min.
What will I look like afterwards? There may be some mild swelling, and as with any injection, the possibility of mild bruising. You can resume your regular activity immediately afterwards, however, it is not recommended that this be done within a week of an important event just in case there is some mild bruising.
