Types of Dermal Fillers Offered

  • Juvederm (Hyaluronic Acid Fillers): Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. Juvederm is a popular hyaluronic acid-based filler that is used to add volume to the skin and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. It is known for its natural-looking results and long-lasting effects.
  • Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers): Calcium hydroxylapatite is a mineral-like compound that is found in bones. Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite-based filler that is used to add volume to the skin and stimulate collagen production. It is particularly effective for filling deep wrinkles and enhancing facial contours.

Cheek Filler:

Cheek fillers, also known as cheek augmentation or cheek enhancement, are injectable treatments used to add volume to the cheeks and enhance facial contours. They can restore lost volume due to aging or genetics, creating a more youthful and lifted appearance. Cheek fillers are often made of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials.

Jawline Filler:

Jawline fillers are injectable treatments used to define and contour the jawline. They can add volume to the jaw area, creating a more sculpted and balanced appearance. Jawline fillers are commonly made of hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, which can provide long-lasting results.

Chin Filler:

Chin fillers are injectable treatments used to enhance the chin and improve facial harmony. They can add volume to the chin, create a more defined chin profile, and improve the overall balance of the face. Chin fillers are often made of hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, and can help achieve a more balanced and symmetrical facial appearance.

Lip Filler:

Lip fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments designed to enhance the volume, shape, and definition of the lips. Utilizing hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body, these injections provide a safe and effective solution for achieving fuller, more youthful lips. The procedure is quick, typically taking less than an hour, and offers immediate results with minimal downtime. Whether addressing asymmetry, fine lines around the mouth, or simply seeking a plumper appearance, lip fillers can be customized to meet individual aesthetic goals, providing natural-looking and long-lasting enhancements.

The Treatment Process

During your consultation, one of our expert providers will assess your facial anatomy and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine the best treatment plan for you. The actual treatment typically takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the areas being treated. We will use a fine needle to inject the filler into the targeted areas, and you may experience some minor discomfort or stinging during the procedure.

Aftercare and Recovery

After your treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which should subside within a few days. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment, but we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours.

Results and Maintenance

You will see immediate results after the treatment, with optimal results appearing within 1-2 weeks as any swelling subsides. The results of dermal fillers typically last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and how your body responds to the treatment. To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling touch-up treatments as needed.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Compared to neuromodulators like botox, this would be considered more painful BUT we have tools to make your procedure comfortable. Most of the dermal fillers already contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, so many patients do not require anything more. For more sensitive areas like the lips, we can apply a strong topical numbing cream or perform a nerve block prior to the procedure. We will discuss all options with you during the consultation to make sure that you are comfortable during the procedure.

The procedure may take up to 30-45 minutes, depending upon how many areas are treated. If you require topical numbing, it will take an additional 30 minutes. Minor adjustments may take 10 minutes or less. The length of time that the treatment lasts depends upon the type of filler used.

Most fillers last 6-12 months.

This will depend upon your treatment goals. We recommend gradually building up your facial features to keep the results natural. You will likely need more than a half syringe per area treated to see a difference. It’s been said that you may need a syringe per decade of life to start, due to the cumulative effects of aging. From then on, you will require less for maintenance.

Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects, and typically last a few days to weeks. Avoiding over the counter anti-inflammatories and certain supplements the week before the treatment will help reduce bruising. The use of cold compress and topical or oral supplements may further reduce bruising. We will discuss all potential side effects, as well as pre and post care instructions that will help reduce side effects, with you during your consultation.

Dermal Fillers should not be used if you have an active infection or inflammation at the site to be treated, or if you have a known allergy to an ingredient in the formulations. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have the treatment.

For 48 hours it’s recommended to avoid anything that makes you red – tanning, exercise, hot showers, etc. as this may increase discomfort and swelling. Use a cool compress, and consider use of the topical and oral supplements which may help reduce bruising. Try to avoid touching your face for the first 6 hours. Avoid any unnecessary pressure to the area, and avoid the application of makeup for 24 hours, or until the area has healed. We will go over the aftercare during the consultation, and you will receive an aftercare instruction sheet with this information.
