Dermal Fillers

Your health care professionals at Radiance Medical Spa will help you determine which fine line filler is best for your unique needs and aesthetic goals. JUVEDERM®, JUVEDERM® VOLUMA XC, Restylane®, Belotero Balance®Perlane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® are all safe and FDA-approved to restore volume and fullness to the areas being treated. This restored volume results in a natural, more youthful appearance.

Areas that are typically treated with Dermal Fillers include:

  • Smile Lines: Typically are from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth – also known as “nasolabial folds” or “parenthesis lines”.
  • Marionette Lines: Run from the corners of the mouth down toward the chin area. These lines can sometimes cause people to look unhappy or frowning.
  • Vertical Lines Near the Mouth: These lines are often caused by sun damage, lip movement, smiling, or smoking; these fine vertical lines can develop near and around the lips and mouth.
  • Lips
  • Additional areas that can be enhanced with dermal fillers include cheeks, chins, noses, fill-in frown lines (the “11s” between the eyebrows), temples, lower eyelids/hollowing under the eyes, acne scars, other scars, and hollowing of the hands.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Immediately. You may also see some additional swelling due to the injections for the first 2-3 days.

Every 6-12 months.

MEDICATIONS TO AVOID PRIOR TO TREATMENT:

Discuss with us and your primary physician your exact medication list prior to stopping, but typically avoid your blood thinners (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, omegas, flaxseed oil, fish oil, vitamin D3, and vitamin E) for 3-5 days prior to your treatment .
