We begin with a careful consultation to determine the areas of concern and to evaluate your skin. Some discomfort can be expected with filler injections, and depending on the site, our trained medical staff may use topical anesthesia or dental blocks (injectable anesthesia) to make the treatment more comfortable. Finally, the gel is injected into the area using extremely fine needles.
With hyaluronic fillers, mild to moderate redness and swelling can occur and last for several days. In the lips, swelling may last up to 7 days. In addition, you may experience some temporary bruising at the injection sites.
Restylane™ and other fillers plump up lines and restore volume, whereas Botox relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles.
