Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injection treatments used to diminish wrinkles, restore fullness, or make subtle changes.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide hydration, fullness, and elasticity. It diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers use clear gel formulations of HA. As the original non-animal stabilized HA filler are designed to be closest to the body’s own hyaluronic acid with minimal crosslinking, approved by the US FDA.

Define and contour

Cheek filler can be used to help achieve a variety of aesthetic goals, such as defining the cheekbones more dramatically or restoring a youthful-looking radiance by reclaiming a subtle, natural-looking cheek contour.

Reclaiming your contour

The cheeks are one of the first areas to show signs of aging in the face. As we age, we lose volume and definition in the cheeks, causing the appearance of “sagging” cheeks and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid cheek filler can help restore your natural contour to refresh your look, while maintaining dynamic expression.

What to Avoid after getting Dermal Filler:

For optimal results post-treatment, follow these guidelines to allow the filler to settle and integrate with your skin:

Heat Exposure: Avoid anything that elevates your body temperature for at least 24 hours post-treatment, including sun exposure, tanning beds, saunas, and hot showers.

Strenuous Exercise: Refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment to avoid interfering with results.

Blood-Thinning Supplements: Avoid over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and blood-thinning medications and supplements for a few days before and after treatment.

Alcohol: Avoid alcohol consumption on the day of treatment and for at least 24 hours afterward to reduce the risk of bruising and maintain skin hydration.

Facial Massage: Avoid scheduling facial massage treatments immediately after treatment to prevent filler migration.

Sleeping Position: Avoid putting pressure on the injection site by sleeping on your back temporarily.

Professional Skincare Treatments: Refrain from scheduling any professional skincare treatments in the immediate aftermath of your dermal filler appointment.
