Facial Filler

Lift, revive, define! A customized blend of hyaluronic acid facial fillers will add volume, sculpt, smooth, and reshape your face—replacing the firmness and structure that may have been lost over time. With a variety of injectable gels, we can improve cheeks, chin and jawline, lips, and smooth unwanted lines and creases.

Consults available by appointment. 

  • Schedule filler appointments at least 4 weeks prior to any special events! Ideal results, bruising, and swelling may be apparent for 2 weeks after treatment.

  • Avoid aspirin for 10 days. Ideally avoid ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vitamin E, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/fish oil, for 5 days prior to the procedure, because these medications will make you more likely to bruise. Please call the office with any medication questions.

  • You can take arnica tabs for 7-10 days prior to your injection appointment although this is not mandatory.

  • Tylenol will not cause bruising and is preferred for the week prior to treatment.

  • Alcohol is also a blood thinner and should be avoided for 24 hours prior to the procedure to minimize bruising.

  • To minimize risk of infection, it is important to avoid dental work, including cleanings, for 2 weeks before and after your filler procedure.

  • Reschedule your appointment if you have a cold sore. Antiviral medicines are recommended if you have a history of cold sores, as lip filler can trigger cold sores.
