What are Fillers?
As our face changes over time, we tend to notice that volume that once was there is no longer found. “Fillers” are materials that we use to fill in lines in areas that volume is lacking. Common areas include the cheeks, which descend and cause deeper “smile lines”, hallowing around the eyes “Tear troughs”, and and overall aged and tired appearance. Other areas include the corner of the mouth, around the eyes, and temples.
Will the injection sight bruise?
No, the injection sight will not bruise. We perform injectable fillers in a bruise-less technique using micronanulas. This allows for a safer, less painful and more precise treatment for the patient.
What is the down time and how long will my results last?
These treatments can be performed in the office with no downtime. Derma Fillers (“Volumizers”) are used to reverse facial deflation, restoring fullness. They are temporary, lasting from 6 months in the lips to 12 months in the facial area and up to two years in the midface (Voluma) and tear troughs. Hyaluronic Acid-HA (sugars) are Restyline, Juvederm, Voluma and Belotero are fillers. The Hyaluronic Acid products have a reversal agent that can be injected into the area to remove it if you do not like the results. Radiesse (Hydroxyapatite-(Bone Glue) last for 12-18 months but does not have a reversal agent. These materials can give you a younger more rested appearance enhancing your features and defying age and gravity.
