Injectable fillers are commonly used to reduce facial lines, wrinkles and facial imperfections such as laugh lines, lipstick lines, smoker’s lines, and wrinkles at the corners of the mouth. They are also used to plump the lips, and are often done with other procedures like face lifts and neck lifts.

Injectable Fillers Preparation, Procedure and Aftercare
Before your treatment, you will be instructed to stop using any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E. These supplements and medications can increase bleeding and bruising. Also, tell us about any previous facial cold sores, as we can prescribe medication to minimize the chance of recurrence.
An anesthetic cream will be applied to the area to reduce possible discomfort. A small needle is inserted and then the proper amount of filler is injected into the treatment area.
After any minor swelling subsides, a follow-up treatment may be required to refine the results.
You can return to your regular routine immediately after treatment. You may experience some redness and tenderness at the injection site; however, these symptoms will normally disappear within a few hours.
