What to Expect at Your Injectable Fillers Appointment

At your injectable fillers appointment, you can anticipate a personalized and efficient experience designed to enhance your facial features and restore a youthful appearance. Your appointment begins with a thorough consultation with a dermatology provider to discuss your aesthetic goals, concerns, and the specific areas you'd like to address with fillers. Based on your discussion, the provider will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique facial anatomy and desired outcomes. 

Before the procedure, the treatment area will be cleansed, and, if necessary, a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any potential discomfort. The actual injection process is relatively quick. The provider will carefully administer the chosen filler, strategically placing it to achieve natural-looking enhancements. You may feel minor discomfort, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Injectable Fillers Maintenance Recommendations

Maintaining the results of your injectable fillers involves a combination of conscientious aftercare and periodic follow-up appointments.

After your initial treatment, it's important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your provider. 
  • Regular Follow-Up Appointments: Schedule periodic follow-up appointments with your dermatology provider to assess the longevity of results and determine if touch-up treatments are needed.
  • Sun Protection: Protect your skin from UV damage by applying sunscreen regularly, especially to treated areas, to maintain the quality of your skin.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate hydration, to support overall skin health and the longevity of filler results.
  • Avoiding Extreme Temperatures: Refrain from exposing treated areas to extreme temperatures, such as intense heat or cold, to minimize the risk of complications.
  • Gentle Skincare: Use mild skincare products and avoid harsh exfoliants in the treated areas to prevent irritation and maintain the integrity of the skin.
  • Communication with Provider: Communicate openly with your dermatology provider about any changes or concerns, ensuring prompt guidance and adjustments to the treatment plan if needed.

Injectable Fillers Maintenance Schedule

  • To maintain the benefits of injectable fillers, scheduling a follow-up appointment a few weeks after the initial treatment is crucial.
  • Depending on the filler type, maintenance appointments every six months to a year are typically recommended to assess results, make adjustments, and align enhancements with evolving aesthetic goals. This regular communication with your provider ensures a consistently rejuvenated appearance and optimal, long-lasting results.

Juvéderm Fillers FAQs

Juvéderm is a collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide temporary improvements in facial appearance by adding volume and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin, attracts and binds water, adding volume and hydration. Juvéderm fillers use this to smooth lines, wrinkles, and folds, and to add volume to areas like the cheeks and lips.

Juvéderm fillers are commonly used to treat wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), lines around the lips (perioral lines), and to add volume to the lips and cheeks.

The duration of results can vary depending on the specific product used, the area treated, and individual factors. Typically, results can last from 6 months to 2 years.

Juvéderm fillers are FDA-approved and considered safe for most people when administered by a trained and qualified dermatology professional. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. If you are interested in Juvéderm fillers, schedule a consultation with one of our skilled injectors to determine what filler is best for you.

Most people can resume normal activities immediately after treatment, though some may experience temporary swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site.
