Currently, there are several substances available to improve the appearance of folds and wrinkles. They can also successfully increase lip size and fill in facial contours.There are many different types of fillers. Each has different characteristics, including thickness/body, longevity, and versatility. At Associates we use the gold standard of which is a JUVÉDERM® Xc is hyaluronic acid gel filler form he same makers of Botox.

Hyaluronic acid gel fillers are the most forgiving, least likely to form lumps or bumps, and can be dissolved with a hyaluronidase injection if necessary.

JUVÉDERM® is used to treat areas of the face including: Nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sunken cheeks. lip lines, lip augmentation and tear troughs for the appropriate patient. With appropriate filler amount the results can last up to 1 year or longer.

What can you expect from the injections: As with any needle inserted into the skin there is always a risk of bruising, tenderness, swelling and possible redness after the injections are completed. In some cases lumps or bumps can occur, but we make it extra important to work through any areas that may have that present.

Fillers are placed into he face deep below the tissue in some areas. For the lips it is placed more superficially. The injections are done in our office same day and you can resume normal activities right away.

Will it be painful: Some people may experience more pain then others, but to relieve any unnecessary distress we can apply an numbing cream for 20-30 minutes prior to injections to relieve any discomfort. Regardless, results are immediate and will continue to work with proper hydration.
