DERMAL FILLERS

Have you been curious about dermal fillers but worry about looking overdone? Well, don’t worry! In the hands of a skilled certified injector with an artistic sensibility, no one will ever know you have had dermal filler injections to restore lost volume in the face.

In fact, you’d be surprised to learn how many people you see every day who have had these injections. They’ve chosen their certified injector wisely, so all you know is that they look terrific.

A fine needle is used, and most fillers contain Lidocaine right in the formula for a numbing effect during the injections. Plus, we use a numbing cream at the injection sites. These fillers are safe, so allergy testing is not required.

 

Recovery from Dermal Fillers

One of the key advantages to dermal fillers is that there is no down time – you can continue your life immediately. Some people do experience some slight swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites, however. These effects are generally short-lived, and you can cover any discoloration with makeup.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is great for those nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the mouth, and it is often used to create fuller, pouty lips. Of all the facial fillers, it has the highest concentration ofhyaluronic acid, a substance that is already in the body.

With a syrupy consistency, Juvederm is very smooth when injected into the skin, making it look perfectly natural.

Juvéderm lasts 6-8 months for most patients, but some people have reported that the effects have lasted as long as 12 months.
