At Enhanced Beauty Medical Spa, we offer both Allergan (Juvéderm) and Galderma (Restylane) brand dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid gel products that are designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that occurs naturally in the body and in the skin, it delivers nutrients and hydration that acts as a volumizing agent. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of hyaluronic acid, but factors including aging, weight loss, and even sun exposure cause our skin to lose structure and volume.
Commonly Injected Areas:
- Peri-oral lines (water bottle lines)
- Mid-face/smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Necklace lines
Procedure and Results
Each dermal filler appointment is roughly 30 minutes to 1 hour long depending on what type of injections you are receiving. You will receive topical numbing at your appointment to make the procedure more comfortable. Following your injections, we encourage you to avoid exercise for 24 hours. If you received lip filler avoid straws for at least 72 hours, two weeks is preferred. Do not apply make-up until the following day. Expect swelling and mild tenderness to the injection site. Bruising can occur. Do not manipulate the area injected. You may cleanse face with gentle wash that evening.
