Hyaluronic acid fillers are placed into the tissue to enhance your natural anatomy or to restore volume loss. They can be placed into lips, cheeks, chin points, under eyes/tear troughs, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and so many other locations to make you feel and look your best.
Some filler placements may require patients to be on medical grade skin care. This allows us to properly estimate healing time.
Can't handle needles? Ask for a numbing blocker — only an extra $20.
Before treatment, you may be advised to use medical grade skincare on the area. If you are treating a sensitive area, you may be advised to use medical grade skincare post treatment for proper healing.
To lessen bruising, we recommend patients start taking arnica tablets and avoid taking blood thinners (Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, Aleve, etc) for 3 days before their appointment
