Soft tissue fillers have quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market because these treatments can shape, accentuate, and sculpt facial features without the invasiveness of plastic surgery. Facial fillers are often confused with neuromodulators (aka. Botox, commonly used together in treatment). Neuromodulators “freeze” muscle movement to prevent wrinkles, while fillers add or replace volume loss and provide support to the facial structures. The most common and safest type of filler is known as hyaluronic acid. The addition of HA filler to the face can smooth skin, add volume, decrease shadowing, and create an overall more youthful appearance.
What are HA dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your body commonly found in the skin & connective tissue. It is known for its ability to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid has a texture similar to a gel, making it an ideal product to sculpt and add volume to the face or body. There are frequently new HA fillers being manufactured in today’s market, all with different indications & effects. It can be challenging to navigate what product is best for you. Your RejuvaDERM injector will help you choose the most appropriate filler based on your skin type, treatment area, price range, and desired treatment outcome.
A thorough consultation is included in your treatment appointment at Rejuvaderm. Your treatment will be made comfortable through the use of anesthetic and expert injection techniques. Your results will be noticed immediately, but typically, swelling will occur for 1-2 weeks after injection. Once the swelling has settled, you will see the full effects of your treatment.
What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators are used to reduce or eliminate lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. They relax the muscles responsible for the development of static and dynamic lines/wrinkles.
Clients who receive this treatment are able to achieve a “browlift” for low set brows, or it can be used to create a higher arch in the brow for an aesthetic appeal.
Neuromodulators for the lower face can treat dimpling of the chin, a “gummy smile,” as well as the downturn of a smile.
After treatment, the muscles gradually become relaxed, allowing the overlying skin to appear smooth and unwrinkled. The full effect of a neuromodulator treatment is about 5-7 days.
