Injectable Fillers to Volumize Skin and Reduce Creases
Over 15 Years of Experience with Injectable Facial Fillers
Injectable fillers provide a gentle, cosmetic solution to volumize, firm and rejuvenate facial areas that tend to loose fullness and develop creases over time. Facial fillers treat a variety of zones in the face. Some fillers may also used to add and restore fullness to lips and hands.
Fillers come in a variety of brands, differentiated by their thickness, or viscosity, and compounds, to address specific facial issues. Our skilled aestheticians have the experience to identify the best viscosity to achieve your goals. A viscosity that works for one patient, is not necessarily the right solution for you.
Our portfolio of injectable fillers represent a comprehensive menu of proven, reliable brands such as Sculptura®, Juvederm Ultra®, Juvaderm Ultra Plus®, Perlane®, Restylane®, and Belotero®.
Understanding Injectable Fillers
While the word filler may sound a little unnerving, be assured, at the Whole Beauty® Institute, treatments are delivered by our highly-trained and experienced medical professionals in a clinically sterile environment. Our team is directed by plastic surgeon, John Q. Cook M.D., a recognized leader in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery and medical aesthetics.
The majority of products are formulated from hyaluronic acid molecules, a naturally occurring substance in the skin and body, that add volume and draws water into your skin to give it a full and youthful appearance. Other brands might include poly-L-lactic acid, the same component used in dissolvable stitches, which is injected into the skin or at deeper levels to gradually replace collagen lost during the aging process.
Areas of Influence
We all have a few imperfections we’d like to erase. Some of the common areas that frustrate our patients include smile lines, nasal folds, lower eyelid depressions, furrows or random facial lines. Fillers can be very effective in taming these facial issues with minimal discomfort. With advanced techniques, injectable fillers can also be used to restore volume to areas of the face that have become hollow from weight loss or the aging process.
What can I expect?
You can expect to receive the highest level of personal attention and care. We are passionately committed to achieving results that make you happy. Together with our expert clinicians you will decide on the best filler and course of treatment to help you meet your goals. Depending on the type of injectable filler, location, and concern, your appointment will take between 15 and 30 minutes. After treatment you may experience varying degrees of discomfort, swelling, bruising or redness. These symptoms can last for up to 36 hours. Some cosmetic goals may require a series of appointments.
How well do injectable fillers work?
Very well. Our patients have been very pleased with their experience. Depending upon the filler, your skin and your goals, the results and their duration can vary. All fillers are absorbed naturally and safely by your body. While some results may diminish in two months, other fillers may last up to six months, even two years for some brands. In some cases, our patients may achieve the best cosmetic results by combining fillers with relaxants.
