As we age, our faces lose youthful volume, allowing fine lines, wrinkles and hollow areas to become more apparent. Though this is a natural part of the aging process-it doesn’t have to happen before you’re ready. Injectable fillers, also known as facial fillers, can be used to rejuvenate an aging face or create a voluminous appearance.
Temporary hyaluronic acid treatments offer improvement in shape, volume, symmetry and overall provide rejuvenation of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. Injectable treatments using hyaluronic acid are considered a safe, non-surgical alternative to traditional surgical options that are invasive and have a longer recovery time.
Results are immediate. It is normal to experience swelling and possible bruising after treatment, the immediate swelling will improve usually within 72 hours. However, the lips generally take two weeks to completely heal.

What to expect during a consultation/treatment?
You will meet with a qualified and experienced health care provider with special training in aesthetics that will review your health history and assess the facial area. If you are a good candidate for treatment a plan will be put in place with your provider for the day of treatment.
On the treatment day a topical numbing cream is applied to the area prior to any injections. There is also an anesthetic in the dermal filler for added comfort. The treatment itself is generally well tolerated. After the skin is cleansed, small needles will be used to distribute the filler in a precise fashion. The treated area will be monitored post treatment and ice will be provided after.
