FILLERS

AREA: Cheeks, Jaw, Chin, Lips, and more     FREQUENCY: Every 9-18 months

WHAT DOES IT DO?


Smooth away the signs of aging, wrinkles, folds and creasing with the smooth-consistency our suite of hyaluronic acid gel filler. Fillers are formulated using hyaluronic acid, an element produced naturally within your body, to increase volume, smooth and fill in wrinkles, add volume and structure to the lips.

 

What types of Filler do we Have?

RESTYLANE can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.

RESTYLANE SILK is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.

RESTYLANE LYFT is a safe, effective and dissolvable HA filler. Treatment can be administered in your hands and face at the same appointment — and can result in a more youthful-looking appearance.

RESTYLANE KYSSE is the first lip filler designed with XpresHAn Technology for flexible movement and natural-looking volume proven to last for up to 1 year. Enhance texture and color of the lips while maintaining a full range of expressions.

RESTYLANE REFYNE is designed with XpresHAn Technology to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions.

RESTYLANE DEFYNE is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions and movement by smoothing out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).

JUVEDERM XC corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses lines or "smile lines" around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

JUVEDERM ULTRA is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips—in adults over the age of 21. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also approved for smoothing and correcting moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), in adults.

JUVEDERM VOLUMA injectable gel is designed for deep injection for augmentation of the chin and cheek region to improve the chin profile, and add volume to the cheeks.

JUVEDERM VOLLURE is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including the "parentheses lines" around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC is designed to temporarily correct facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face for adults over the age of 21.

JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is an injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called "lipstick lines" in adults over the age of 21.

 

Frequently asked questions

 

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Before starting treatment, your clinician will evaluate the area where you want filler and discuss your goals. Then they will develop a plan using the filler they feel will help you reach that goal. Finally, they will either use a topical numbing solution, or ice to numb the area of injections

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 2-3 treatments.

WILL I NEED TIME TO RECOVER?

You will likely experience 3-5 days of swelling post treatment, and may develop a bruise at the injection site.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF FILLER?

The most commonly reported side effects of fillers were temporary injection-site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. They were predominantly mild or moderate in nature and lasted 7 days or less.

WHAT SHOULD I TELL MY DOCTOR BEFORE TREATMENT?

  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed
  • Are taking any medications, especially blood thinners
  • Have a history of cold sores
  • Have received or plan to receive the COVID 19 vaccine

 

 

PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Because some redness and swelling is normal following filler injections, be sure to schedule your appointment three weeks prior to any special event. Swelling and redness should diminish within 24 hours. There is a chance of bruising with any injection, especially with those prone to bruising.

To reduce this chance, be sure to discontinue herbals like vitamin E, St John’s wort, and ginkgo biloba several days prior to your appointment. Other medications such as ibuprofen (Advil) and aspirin can also increase bleeding and should also be discontinued five days prior to your appointment. If these are prescribed for a health condition, consult the prescribing physician before making any changes.

ALWAYS eat before a filler appointment.

POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Mineral makeup can be applied immediately following the injections and can be used in the following days to cover any redness or bruising. We recommend icing the injection site for the hours following the treatment to help will swelling and decrease bruising. Ask us about concealers and lip colors that help hide bruising!

Avoid strenuous activity, and pressure on the area of injection for 72 hours post procedure.
