Facial Filler Overview

Fillers are used to add volume, create lift, and help achieve a younger looking, more refreshed version of yourself. Fillers can be used in different areas of the face and our injectors can help you determine which is best for you. Our goal is to provide natural-looking results that you leave you feeling confident!

What Facial Filler does

At SpaDerma, 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, these products provide an immediate result that can last for up to a year and is absorbs naturally into the skin.


How to prepare for Filler

You must be over 18 to receive injections. We cannot treat patients who are pregnant or nursing. You also cannot be treated 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 physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurse injectors. 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.
