Facial fillers add volume and fullness back to the face. Also called dermal fillers, they help lift, shape and refine features of the face, minimizing the signs of aging. Facial fillers enhance the cheeks, midface, back of hands and create subtle lip enhancement with natural results.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid. This causes our skin strength, elasticity and fat volume to decrease, changing the shape and appearance of the face. Loss of volume in the facial area can be seen in sagging skin, folds, lines or wrinkles. Facial fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, the natural substance found in your skin. When hyaluronic acid is mixed with collagen, it keeps the skin plump, hydrated and youthful. Facial fillers add structure, volume and support to redefine your features bringing back a more youthful appearance. Watch Facial Fillers treatment video.
TYPES OF FACIAL FILLERS
Restylane can be used to fill and lift areas of the face. It improves the “tired” appearance found in the grooves under the eyes. Results occur after one treatment and can last nine to twelve months.
Juvéderm smooths and softens the lines around the nose (nasolabial folds) and mouth (marionette lines), restoring the area to a healthy, natural appearance. Results can last up on one year.
Over time, our cheeks flatten and skin begins to sag. Voluma and Lyft injected deep into the facial tissue adds volume to lift and contour the cheek and midface. Noticeable results after one treatment, lasting up to eighteen months.
Formulated specifically for the lips, Silk or Volbella will add subtle volume to lips that are thinning and help smooth fine vertical lip lines. Enhancing your lips with either of these fillers can provide a lip lift, a fuller but natural looking lip. Treatments last six to nine months.
These fillers are formulated to support your natural facial expressions. Used to soften and smooth moderate to deep lines around the nose and mouth, they help maintain natural movements when you smile, frown or laugh. Treatment results can last nine to twelve months.
Facial Filler FAQS
Facial fillers help reduce the early signs of aging seen through a loss of facial volume. As a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure, the treatment provides instant results with no downtime. Facial fillers are customizable, allowing you to treat your specific area of concern.
Prior to the treatment, you will discuss your goals with one of our experienced injectors. Based on your area of concern, the injector will select the product that best achieves the results you are looking for.
Facial fillers are injected using ultra-fine needles or cannulas (blunt tip needles) into various locations of the face. The injection may be just below the surface of the skin or deeper into the facial tissue. Prior to the treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area. Fillers also contain a local anesthetic so there is instant numbing during the treatment. You may experience some swelling or minor bruising. Small ice packs are provided after the treatment to help with swelling.
Depending on the areas being treated, a facial filler treatment can last between 30 and 60 minutes. There is no downtime. Your injector may recommend limiting strenuous activity for the day, depending on the filler and area.
No, facial fillers are a temporary treatment. Your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid over time. Facial fillers last 6 – 18 months, depending on the filler that is used.
