As you get older, you will begin to notice fat loss in your face
which will then cause drooping of the mouth, nasolabial folds,
marionette lines and jowels.
What are fillers?
At Face & Body Boutique, we offer a variety of soft tissue fillers with the most sophisticated techniques to naturally restore lost volume to your face or to enhance facial features. Our providers choose to use only the safest either hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite, to deliver predictable and long-lasting correction.
Filler can be used to treat or enhance:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette lines
- Superficial wrinkles
- Tear troughs
- Jaw lines
- Acne scars
- Hand Rejuvenation
- Brow Lift
How does it work?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely effective for deeper wrinkles, volume loss and lip augmentation. Hyaluronic acid is a substance from the body that is found in the skin that is responsible for water retention. It hydrates, gives flexibility, resilience and volume. As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid diminishes and therefore your skin gets weaker and wrinkles may arise. The filler is a gel that is injected under the skin which gives an instant lift and correction.
Benefits of fillers:
- Immediate correction of moderate to deep wrinkles.
- Stimulates the natural collagen production of the body
- Feels soft and looks natural.
- Provides a result that lasts a year or longer for many patients.A simple and practical procedure where patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately after being treated.
What to expect?After an in-depth consultation and explanation from your provider, topical creams are used to numb the treatment area. Very thin needles or cannulas are used to gently inject the filler beneath the surface of your skin. Results are typically seen right away and you can return to your regular activities the next day.
Who is a good candidate?
Good candidates for fillers will have moderate to severe folds or wrinkles, or other problem areas that they do not want to correct with surgery (for example, under eye circles, sunken cheeks, lip augmentation etc.). Patients must be in good health and avoid blood thinner medications prior to the procedure. You cannot have the treatment if you are breast feeding or pregnant.
Is there any aftercare required?Immediately after treatment there may be slight redness, swelling or a bruise may be visible. These issues typically resolve in a few days. You should avoid touching or massaging the filler for 2 weeks. It is also important to avoid sun exposure, facials and exercise for 2-3 days post procedure. Please call the clinic if you have any doubts or questions
Is it safe?
We only use FDA approved fillers that have been on the market and undergone the most rigorous approval processes. Risks from injections are very minimal. The most common reactions are bruising at the injection site or swelling of the treatment area. These side effects diminish quickly and can be treated with ice packs or over the counter pain medication.
