How does it work?
Cosmetic and dermal fillers can help you to regain a plumper, smoother look, typical of a younger person. Fillers are injectable substances that integrate into the skin and bond with water molecules, which help the skin to retain moisture adding plumpness and smoothing lines. Some fillers also encourage your skin to produce collagen. There are a range of dermal fillers to suit your needs.

These products are FDA approved and are safe and effective.
All Cosmetic Fillers work immediately to give volume to depleted areas of the face.
What areas can be treated?
Common areas for fillers to be used include nose-to-mouth lines, down-turned mouth, lines around the mouth, frown lines, sculpting of the cheeks, chin, nose and lips. It can also be used to treat acne scarring and hand rejuvenation.
Full correction of the face may need more than one syringe. Fillers last anywhere from 4-12 months, depending on which product is used and where it is placed. Cosmetic Reinjection in 6-9 months will extend the volumizing effects for up to 18 months.
How do I prepare for my Cosmetic Filler Treatment?
Prior to treatment do not take anything that thins the blood, (if under a doctors care please contact for instructions if taking blood thinners). No NSAIDS (Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, or aspirn). Avoid alcohol for 24 hours prior, as well as Vitamin E and Omega 3's. These products can thin the blood increasing the chance of bruising.
How much does it hurt and what should I expect during my Cosmetic Filler Procedure?
You should arrive 30 min prior to the scheduled appointment for numbing cream to be applied to the area of treatment. Allergies to lidocaine will not be numbed, and should notify the office of the need for products that do not contain lidocaine. Some may have some discomfort, although, the treatment is usually very tolerable. Bruising is always a possibility, even when avoiding blood thinning agents. Ice may be used before, during and after the procedure. The skin will be cleaned after numbing. The treatment, area dependent, usually last 30 min to 60 min.
After care includes ice for the first day and as needed, Arnica gel (sold at Evolve) should be applied several times a day to bruising and sore areas. No exercise for over heating for 24hours. Allow 7 days for swelling to subside
