Dermal Fillers and Injectables

MED SPA

dermal fillers + injectables

Contour, restore volume, and give a natural-looking fullness to the jaw, cheeks, lips and more. The face naturally loses volume thanks to gravity and a loss in natural collagen. Fillers injected below the skin surface can correct age-related volume loss. They work to restore and plump up volume, smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, or give lips and cheeks a naturally fuller look.
Botox and dermal fillers are all categorized as wrinkle-reducers, however, their action in dermal tissue is completely different. Botox is the wrinkle-reducer that is commonly used in the uppermost areas of the face where wrinkles develop as a result of facial movement. Botox is ideal for these dynamic wrinkles because it blocks certain chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of Botox injections is to relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, adhere to water molecules in the subcutaneous tissue beneath the epidermis to plump superficial layers of the skin.
Dermal fillers are synthetic or naturally-occurring substances injected into the body’s soft tissue at different depths to lift, plump, and contour the face, hands, lips and other body parts. Dermal fillers, or soft tissue fillers, are products made from substances such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-l-lactic acid, polymethyl methacrylate or collagen. These substances can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases, raise depressed scars, and add contour to the lips and cheeks. Fillers are long-lasting but temporary solutions. Products are selected based on each client’s preferences and desired outcome.
FAQ

frequently asked questions

Botox®
Microneedling is considered effective in treating minor scarring related to acne, scars, stretch marks, and maturing skin. You may notice brighter, firmer skin, too. Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions but may require a long-term maintenance plan. Microneedling is far more effective than at-home rollers.

Dysport®
Like Botox®, Dysport® is an injectable treatment used to relax the fine lines and deep wrinkles that appear across the forehead, around the eyes, and between the brows with repeated facial expressions.

Restylane®
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler treatment that can be used to add volume back into areas of the face that may have thinned or sunken with age. We often recommend Restylane® to help treat fine lines and wrinkles around the cheeks, lips, and chin.

Sculptra®
Sculptra® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that adds volume to areas of the face that have sunken or hollowed over time while boosting the body’s natural production of collagen for results that last and keep improving over several years.

Radiesse®
Radiesse® is an injectable treatment used to add volume back into areas around the nose and the mouth.

Patients can benefit from the results of Radiesse® for up to two years.

Dermal fillers are long-lasting, with results visible for up to two years, however, they degrade over time. Treatment may be repeated every few months to years to soften the signs of aging.
Dermal fillers and Botox treatment can and often are administered during the same visit. Because each product works differently in the skin, the two can be a powerful combination to achieve beautiful, natural-looking rejuvenation.
Dermal fillers are generally safe but as with any treatment, there are potential side effects. The risks include (but are not limited to): swelling, firmness, lumps, pain, redness, bruising, itching, and vascular compromise. This occurs in less than 1% of clients. Talk to your doctor about any medications you are taking as these can increase the risk of bleeding or infection.
If you receive filler treatment with a hyaluronic acid product, such as Juvéderm or Restylane, you may have some or all of your filler dissolved. Treatment to dissolve hyaluronic acid dermal fillers involves injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
