So, how do you know which filler you need?
At your appointment, your trouble areas will be evaluated and we will help assess how much filler and what type of filler you will need and where. You will be assessed in a private room where you can share all your concerns and goals with your provider so you can create a plan together.
Your Certified Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner will open the packaging in front of you and then treat the chosen areas. Before injecting the filler, your provider will remove any makeup from the areas being treated to ensure the area is clean. The injections take around 45 minutes total, part of that includes time to numb the area being injected. Most people share that filler is pretty painless.
After being treated with filler, you may have some swelling and potential bruising. This is absolutely normal and expected! This can be avoided by eliminating caffeine, alcohol and aspirin 24-48 hours pre-treatment. If you happen to experience some bruising, you can cover these areas up with makeup 24 hours post treatment.
Results can be expected immediately. Treatments last 6 months to 18 months depending on the product.
Avoid swimming, hot tubs, working out, or rubbing your face for at least 48 hours after treatment. Please view the full Post Treatment Instructions for more information. Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an autoimmune disease, or are taking blood thinners cannot be treated with filler. We do not use filler on anyone younger than 21 years old. Valid ID is required for treatment.
