Dermal Fillers Instructions
We offer the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers, the RESTYLANE portfolio, BELOTERO and now VERSA. With all of these amazing options we are able to address pretty much any non-surgical concern of the face whether it is to add volume to plump lips, smooth lines, or lift & contour cheeks. We have what you need to get the results you want.
Dermal fillers are an amazing treatment and will likely remain a mainstay in the anti-aging world. As a patient, it is important that you do your research thoroughly about who you choose to perform your injections. Although we all love seeing and reading about all the beautiful before and after stories, we cannot ignore the process in between as well as the risks one accepts in order to have these procedures done. Your injector should be very well versed on facial anatomy as well as facial injection anatomy as these two topics are not interchangeable. We are proud to share our experience, credentials and wealth of knowledge with you as you embark upon your injectable journey. Complementary consultation required
What to Expect
During your appointment you will be consulted about which areas you would like treated. Once you and your Injector have agreed on a treatment plan and have gone over potential risks, the injections will begin.
Some areas are numbed prior to treatment with an injectable anesthetic, some areas are numbed with a prescription strength numbing cream. Your Injector will guide you through the process while keeping you informed and comfortable. Once treatment is complete you will discuss results with your Injector and schedule a follow-up visit for two weeks post treatment.
Mild to moderate swelling is expected. To minimize swelling do not take blood thinning medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen unless prescribed by your MD. We will use Post Injection Serum from Alastin Skin Care immediately after injections to maximize results. You will also be provided an ice pack and a post treatment instruction card to take with you after your appointment.
Longevity: Results for HA fillers last 9-12 months, Radiesse (our only non-HA filler) lasts roughly 18 months and also stimulates collaged production.
Appointment Time: 1.5 Hours
Consultation Recommended: If you have questions about whether or not you are a candidate for Dermal Fillers please schedule a free consult prior to treatment.
Appointment Cost: Varies per area, please see Pricing Photo for estimate
Dermal Fillers are an amazing treatment and will remain a favorite for Aesthetic Patients and Providers. However, like all aesthetic procedures there are risks associated with treatment. Our Injectors and Medical Providers are extensively trained in management of adverse reactions and have a reversal agent readily available for use if needed. We have an array of treatment options available to minimize the possibility of reactions but should one occur, we have the expertise to correct and manage. You should feel comfortable knowing safety and cleanliness is our highest priority. Our providers are available 24/7 for post-injection patients in the event you need to contact us.
When I arrived I was greeted by Madi. Together we talked about my expected outcomes, she answered all my questions and then I signed consents. Before she injected she drew on my face and mapped exactly what she would be doing. During the injections I didn’t feel pain and was distracted with a little vibration stick. When she was done injecting I looked in the mirror and was instantly so happy with results. I even looked happier! The cheek filler lasted a little over 9 months. When I was due for another syringe I opted to do Radiesse that lasts longer. When I was younger I had such beautiful cheeks, I feel like I’ve taken off years! The best part is that no one knows I have filler because it looks so natural and have the perfect amount of filler.
