AT SKIN APPEAL WE USE TEOSYAL & JUVEDERM FILLERS.
Teosyal and Juvederm contain hyaluronic acid (HA) of non-animal origin. Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the human body. When the HA gel is injected under your skin, it not only provides an immediate lift it also stimulates collagen production for longer lasting results.
Our HA fillers (Teosyal & Juvederm) are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment.
HA Fillers like Teosyal and Juvederm offer natural soft looking results.
These HA Fillers are dissolvable using a special enzyme. A consultation is important time to review goals and expectations so you are happy with your results. Dissolving the filler is not something we want to do but it is comforting to know that we can.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILLERS AND BOTOX/NEWTOX?
Yes. They are very different from each other.
Neuromodulators like BOTOX and NEWTOX are injected into a muscle, temporarily blocking the communication between brain and the muscle. The muscle will not move without these messages, which allows the skin over it to smooth out. This is how neuromodulators can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Typically the treatment areas are in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes. Neuromodulators will not work on lines and wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of volume/plumpness in the face. These are known as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles include lines in the cheeks, neck, and jowl areas.
Dermal fillers are used to replace lost volume in the face typically in the lower part of such as cheeks, lips and jawline. Fillers plump and smooth areas that have flattened out over time. Botox & Newtox results last 3 to 4 months. Dermal filler results vary, depending on which filler is used.
Because neuromodulators (Botox, Newtox) and fillers (Juvederm & Teosyal) are different substances designed for different uses, they can sometimes be combined in one treatment. For instance, someone may use Botox to correct lines between the eyes and a filler to correct smile lines around the mouth. This is sometimes called a Softlift™
Are dermal fillers right for me?
Dermal fillers are a good option for you if you want to soften the appearance of facial wrinkles, restore your facial contours and/or plump your lips.
What are possible side effects when using dermal fillers?
Most dermal filler side effects are mild and short, which include but not limited to redness, tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps/lumps, itching, bruising and discoloration. Like all skin injections, there’s a risk of infection.
Is there downtime post-dermal filler treatment?
There is minimal to no downtime after using dermal fillers. Most patients can return to work or any other normal activities immediately, with only slight redness or soreness in the treated area. You should expect bruising but it does not mean it will happen. We recommend that you get a treatment 3-4 weeks prior to a special occasion.
