Injectable wrinkle fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Defyne, and Refyne; Belotero; and Juvederm Ultra can give you a more youthful appearance by filling hollows, lines, wrinkles, and tear troughs, or by “volumizing” and plumping by lifting cheeks and plumping lips. Results are seen immediately, before you even leave, and last from 4 months to over a year. Injectable fillers, unlike neurotoxin injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, actually fill in lines, creases, or hollowed areas of concern. Injection of filler to the upper cheek will also lift the lower face and jowl area, while injection of the lips can provide a plump appearance and improved definition.
A filler consult takes approximately 60 minutes; the areas of concern are discussed, and recommendations are made for treatment. We always stay conservative in our treatment approach for first-time clients! Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and allowed to absorb for at least 5 minutes. Injection takes less than 45 minutes, and results are seen immediately. There is only temporary redness following injection, and bruising occasionally occur; to minimize risk, we recommend discontinuing all anti-inflammatory medications and fish oil about one week prior to treatment. Clients return to their daily routine immediately and may apply makeup immediately after!
May not be breastfeeding nor pregnant. Recommend discontinuing anti-inflammatories and fish oil/omegas one week prior to treatment to avoid bruising. Arnica may be purchased from Amazon to take prior to treatment to minimize or eliminate bruising risk. May not go to sleep for 4 or more hours post-procedure, and we recommend against vigorous activity following administration.
