Restylane® and Juvéderm® Fillers​ Unveiling Timeless Beauty

Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® are non-surgical cosmetic treatments designed to restore volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial contour. They are injectable hyaluronic acid gel particles designed to address various signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and loss of volume in certain areas of the face due to muscle, bone and fat loss and environmental factors such as sun damage.

Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting and retaining moisture in the skin, resulting in a plumping effect. They can be used to fill in lines and wrinkles, enhance lips, and restore volume to areas like cheeks, chin, jawline and temples.

The procedure involves a trained medical professional injecting the filler into specific areas of the face to reposition tissue and restore lost volume. Depending on the type of filler and the treatment area, results can last anywhere from several months to two years. Dermal fillers are known for their natural-looking results and minimal downtime, making them a popular choice for individuals looking to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery.

It’s important to consult with one of our qualified healthcare providers to determine if dermal fillers are suitable for your goals and needs. We can provide personalized recommendations based on your facial anatomy and desired outcomes, ensuring a safe and effective treatment.

During your appointment you can expect your injector to dive into a thorough consultation and discuss your goals with you. The appropriate filler, amount, treatment areas, and overall long term plan will be determined during the consultation. The results of dermal filler treatment are usually visible immediately, although final results may become more apparent as any initial swelling subsides. Follow-up treatments may be recommended to maintain the desired outcome.

Filler Pre-Treatment Care:

-Avoid any blood thinning agents at least 3 days prior to your appointment. This includes NSAIDS (ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin etc), Ginko Bilboa, fish oil, vitamin E, & garlic to reduce the risk of bruising.
