Why Choose a Cosmetic Filler?
Over time skin begins to lose volume and structure. That’s when lines and wrinkles begin to appear. There are many options now available to improve the appearance of your skin. But when it comes to deeper wrinkles, injectable cosmetic fillers offer the best and most immediate improvement. The fillers used today offer more long lasting results and don’t require an allergy test. The procedure is simple and can be done during your lunch hour at our office.
What Types of Cosmetic Fillers Are Available?
The answer is many. New products are being introduced at a rapid rate. At Ovation Med Spa® we’re keeping pace with the latest advances and are pleased to offer you only the best. Ovation Med Spa® will help you determine which filler is right for you.
Which Facial Areas Respond Best to Treatment?
Fillers work exceptionally well on wrinkles all around the mouth, worry lines in the forehead, they can enhance cheekbones and jaw-lines, and can be used near the eyes to bring out “sunken eyes”. Many people have fillers placed in the back of their hands to minimize the look of bones and veins. And if you’ve ever desired fuller lips, a filler is the perfect choice! Fillers can also be used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for those seeking the ultimate in facial rejuvenation.
How Are Treatments Performed?
The injections are an in-office procedure, that take less than 30 minutes of your time. During the treatment a tiny needle is used to inject the filler beneath the wrinkle or depression, into your own collagen base. With a small amount of lidocaine patients generally experience minimal discomfort.
What Can I Expect Following the Treatment?
Normal activities can be resumed immediately following the treatment. Mild swelling at the treatment site may last for a few hours and you might experience some slight bruising, which can generally be covered with make-up, if it occurs. Results can only be evaluated after any potential swelling has gone down. Your practitioner knows that it is always better to err on the side of caution using a little less filler initially. You can always opt to increase the amount later. The results from a cosmetic filler are temporary and can easily be repeated. The newer generations of fillers used at Ovation Med Spa® last anywhere from 6 months to a year or more.*
