As we age, we tend to lose some of the structure and volume in our face. These natural support structures become less plentiful and over time we see facial lines, wrinkles and skin laxity – all of which rob the skin of its youthful appearance. Injectable fillers act as a scaffolding structure in the skin that stimulates your own body’s collagen production.
Which fillers are right for me?
MVL uses several different types and the choice is dependent on where on the face the filler is needed. Our experienced staff will discuss the options with you to pick the right filler for your needs.
Is the procedure painful?
Both fillers used have a numbing medicine, lidocaine, that is mixed in to minimize discomfort. In addition, ice is used to ensure a very tolerable procedure.
How will I look after my procedure?
There is little to no downtime after filler injection. Most patients experience mild redness. On rare occasions, bruising can occur. Results are immediate and the full effects are seen over the next 2-3 weeks. How long do the fillers last?
Both fillers have proven effects for a least a year and often longer.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are an excellent way to eliminate those unwanted frown lines, forehead wrinkles and smile lines or “crows feet” around the eyes. Botox and Dysport do not get rid of wrinkles; they get rid of your ability to make those wrinkles.
Is Botox and Dysport safe? Botox and Dysport are naturally occurring proteins and are very safe. Both agents have been widely used for many years in neurology for issues such as migraine headaches, muscle spasms, and facial tics. The cosmetic effects were discovered over 20 years ago with no side effects or complications.
How long do they last? Most patients see the full effects of the treatment within 2 weeks. These effects last between 3-5 months and your body will retrain the muscles to react to the medication meaning that over time, you will need fewer treatments to keep that youthful, relaxed look.
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler immediately provides the lift needed to diminish wrinkles and folds because of the incredible lifting capacity of the calcium-based filler. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is its ability to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing lift and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This natural growth continues for several months, after the initial effect of RADIESSE has diminished, providing long-lasting and natural, and youthful looking results.
