What to Expect
During your treatment, you will be made comfortable, and a topical numbing cream will be applied. The numbing cream will be removed after an appropriate amount of time, and your aesthetic nurse injector will cleanse and prepare your skin for treatment. You will feel a pinch upon initial injection and will feel some pressure as the product is delivered. Many of the dermal filler products have a numbing agent in them, so you will continue to feel less of the treatment as it goes on. Most patients find the treatment very tolerable. Your aesthetic nurse injector may manipulate the product as needed.
Dermal fillers are a no downtime procedure. After treatment, you’ll be able to leave our offices immediately. You’ll be able to drive yourself home. Many patients actually head right back to work. Redness, tenderness, and swelling can occur, but typically are minor and fade over the course of a few days. Makeup can be applied to cover any redness you may experience. It is important that you do not push or press on the treated areas. It is important that you do not disturb the areas where the product has been placed.
Note that the dermal filler treatments are dosed in syringes, and each area of the face differs in how much product is needed to achieve full correction. No two people will have the same dosing. It is more helpful to think of dermal fillers in terms of results, versus actual syringes used. Volumize treatments do take time to reach efficacy/settle in, typically 3 – 4 weeks. Typical duration of dermal fillers is anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the product used. While it would seem logical to request only the longest lasting dermal filler product, not all dermal fillers are suited for the same areas. Your aesthetic nurse injector will determine which product will give you your best outcome.

TYPES OF FILLERS
The Restylane® line smooths away facial wrinkles and folds ( Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne ), provides subtle lip enhancement (Restylane Kysse, Restylane, Restylane Silk ), smooths the lines around the mouth ( Restylane Silk), adds lift and volume to the cheeks ( Restylane Lyft ), and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands ( Restylane Lyft ).
Full lips are coveted as a sign of youth, but lips often lose volume as we age and some people have naturally thin lips. Dermal fillers are a popular way to add volume to the lips and can also smooth away fine lines near the lips and add definition to the cupid’s bow. Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is fully customizable so you can get a subtly enhanced pout or a more dramatic increase in fullness.
As we age, some of the natural fat in our faces begins to diminish. This can cause a sagging or hollow-looking effect in the mid-face area. Dermal fillers can restore lost volume and can also be used to add definition to the cheekbones. Cheek enhancement with injectable fillers can give you a more youthful look with beautifully contoured cheekbones.
Many people are bothered by a “weak chin or jaw” or the appearance of jowls as they age. If you dream of a more defined jawline or a more structured chin, you may not realize that dermal fillers could be the answer. Adding the right filler to expertly contour the jawline can actually give the appearance of a slimmer, more proportionate, and more youthful face.
As we get older, aging hands like the face are susceptible to volume loss and sun damage. Volume loss becomes associated with looking older as the veins and tendons on the back of the hand become more prominent. Dermal fillers can be used to effectively reverse the signs of aging by replacing the tissue that is lost due to aging. This is a quick procedure and you will leave your appointment with smooth and youthful hands after only 30 minutes. Once your hands are filled, you will no longer be able to see wrinkles, tendons or veins standing out! Each hand usually requires one syringe of filler. The treatment often lasts for a year or more, making the injections and the looks of your hands long lasting.
