WHAT ARE FILLERS?
Fillers are used to plump and smooth the skin, fill facial lines and restore volume loss. We offer a comprehensive line of Hyaluronic Acids and Biostimulators that can be used individually or in conjunction with one another depending on the concern.
Hyaluronic Acid: Injectable HA is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and to create structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. Brands we offer are Versa (Revanesse) and RHA (Revance).
Biostimulators: These are compounds that are injected into the deep layer of the skin called the dermis. Unlike dermal fillers which simply inject volume, biostimulators work by stimulating new tissue growth, helping the skin to naturally produce its own volume. The brand we use is Radiesse.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
An ideal candidate for filler is anyone with realistic expectations that is looking to restore volume and shape to certain areas of the face.
HOW IT'S DONE:
The skin is cleansed and numbed then a syringe is used to inject the filler into the targeted area.
RESULTS, RECOVERY, FREQUENCY
There is no downtime with filler. Swelling can last 2-7 days. Results are dependent upon where the injection takes place and the type of filler being used. Come back as you please.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Slight swelling and bruising at the injection sites.
Come in as is!
Ice and arnica gel/tablets can be used to help reduce any swelling and bruising.
