Hyaluronic Fillers (Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®)

Hyaluronic Fillers (Juvederm® [Plus or Voluma], Restylane®, Perlane®) 

Juvederm ®, Restylane ®, Perlane ® are all safe, natural cosmetic fillers that provide volume, fullness and hydration to lift the skin.  These fillers are great for plumping up lips, wrinkles, hallows, and some acne scarring.  Because hyaluronic acid attracts and binds up to 5 times its weight in water, these fillers will feel soft and like part of your own natural skin.  The  hyaluronic fillers are natural, biodegradable, non-animal based gels.  No skin testing is required so a patient can receive fillers at the time of consultation.
At the time of treatment, a strong topical anesthetic cream will be applied to decrease sensitivity and bruising.  An anesthetic block will also be used if you are receiving injection in your lips.  The block will totally ware off in 15 minutes and makes the entire procedure much more comfortable.  At the end of the procedure, you will be offered a mirror to check the results and more will be added if requested by the patient.  Makeup can be applied immediately.  If you are a bruiser, avoid aspirin for 2 weeks, Advil for 2 days and buy cover-up (best one- Illuminare, extra coverage concealer, the aqua colored tube.  Porcelain color works well for most  www.illuminarecosmetics.com).
