ABOUT FILLER

A filler treatment is a cosmetic dermatological procedure that is used to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful look. It is a great treatment option for those who want to eliminate the signs of aging but are not willing to undergo invasive treatments such as a traditional facelift. It works by filling up areas of the face that are prone to sagging to bring back its natural volume and fullness. Although it does not bring permanent results, it offers a simpler, safer, and cheaper way to look younger.


Most common areas where filler is used:


Cheeks

Lips

Vertical lip lines

Facial wrinkles

Nasolabial folds – commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” that run from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth

Marionette lines – lines from the corners of your mouth that run toward your chin

WHAT FILLER DOES

At Celsius, we use hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers (in the Restylane and Juvederm product lines) in a strategic and customized fashion to turn back time, minimize imperfections and asymmetry, and add volume exactly where it is needed. Since hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is naturally found in our bodies, this product yields immediate results that can last for up to a year and absorb naturally into the skin.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR FILLER

Patient must be over 18 to receive injections. We cannot treat patients who are pregnant or nursing. We cannot treat patients within 30 days of major dental surgery. Please eat before your appointment. We recommend you do not take any blood thinners, including drinking alcohol, 24 hours prior to treatment as this can promote bruising. If you are prone to facial cold sores, we recommend taking Valtrex or something similar for few days prior to treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The treatment is performed by a physician assistant. Immediately after treatment, you may experience swelling or bruising that should subside within a few days.

POSTCARE NOTES

  • You may have significant swelling after injections, especially if lips were treated. Applying ice/cool compresses to the treatment area helps to reduce swelling. 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off five times a day is a general guideline. Avoid direct ice/frozen packs directly on the skin.
  • No lipstick for 24 hours. Apply Aquaphor with a clean Q-Tip
  • Taking an over-the-counter antihistamine (Zyrtec, Claritin) daily may help with swelling.
  • You may have bruising that develops immediately after the treatment but can take up to 48 hours to be noticeable. Most bruising that occurs will resolve with time on its own.
  • You may take acetaminophen/Tylenol for pain. It is best to avoid aspirin or NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen because they may increase your potential to bruise.
  • Once fully healed two weeks out from your initial injection, if you feel any lumps or bumps in the treated area, you may massage the lumpy area with constant pressure for two minutes and repeat up to five times a day. If the lumps or bumps are bothersome to you, please call our office.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activity for the remainder of the treatment day (including yoga, pilates, etc). You may resume other normal activities immediately and exercise after 24 hours.
  • If you experience any redness, itching, or welts, please call our office. Benadryl is an over the counter medication that can help.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol for a minimum of 12 hours as this may contribute to bruising and/ or swelling.
  • We recommend waiting a minimum of 2 weeks before receiving any facial, facial massage, skin care, or laser treatments to the face.
  • Additional treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired level of correction.
