Injectable fillers are a fantastic way to enhance your lips and fix age-related changes in your skin. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa in Pensacola, Florida, we offer Restylane, Juvéderm, and a wide range of other injectables. These products can fade your lines, plump your facial tissues, and improve many other aesthetic issues.
How Long Do Injectable Fillers Last?
Although most of our injectables will not create permanent improvements in your lines, wrinkles, and other problems, all of our products will produce long-lasting changes in your skin. Since you will process the ingredients in your chosen filler at a unique rate, your improvements will last for a varying amount of time.
Juvéderm Ultra XC
We offer several different dermal fillers in the popular Juvéderm collection. Juvéderm Ultra XC is one of the most widely used products in this collection. If you have thin lips, you can use this powerful dermal filler to correct this aesthetic problem by adding volume to your lips. If you already have full lips, you can use this filler to make your lips even more voluminous.
This filler is likely to improve the size or shape of your lips for up to 12 months. As your body processes the ingredients in this product, your lips will gradually become smaller. You can correct this change by receiving additional injections in your lips.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
We can use Juvéderm Vollure XC to fade lines that appear on your face. Juvéderm Vollure XC is likely to correct your wrinkles for about 12 to 18 months.
Juvedérm Volbella XC
If you would like to make subtle changes to the size and shape of your lips, you should consider using Juvedérm Volbella XC. This flexible filler will improve your lips in a natural-looking, sophisticated manner. We can also use this product to minimize your vertical lip lines. Like Juvéderm Ultra XC, this injectable product is likely to plump your lips for up to 12 months.
When you reach your thirties and forties, your cheeks start to lose volume. Juvedérm Voluma is a powerful filler that will fix these changes by plumping the tissues in the middle of your face. After you receive this dermal filler, your cheeks will be round and full.
Since this filler is very powerful, your improvements are likely to last for a very long time. In fact, Juvedérm Voluma has the ability to enhance your cheeks for up to 24 months. To receive the most significant improvements in your cheeks, you might choose to have follow-up injections after about one year. These touch-up injections can prolong the benefits of your initial treatment.
In addition to using Juvedérm products to enhance your look, we can correct your aesthetic issues by using products from the Restylane family of dermal fillers. For example, we can fix your facial lines and creases by injecting Restylane into your face.
To prolong the benefits of your treatment, we may advise you to get follow-up injections after several months have passed. If you receive these follow-up injections, your smooth skin may last for up to 18 months.
Restylane Defyne is a filler that is able to fix deep wrinkles that appear on the lower portion of your face. This product will fade your marionette lines and nasolabial folds in a natural-looking way.
After you correct these wrinkles, your skin will look soft and beautiful. In addition, you will still be able to smile, laugh, and make other normal facial expressions. The positive changes in your wrinkles are likely to last for up to 12 months.
Receiving Sculptra Aesthetic is a great way to add long-lasting volume to your facial tissues and fill in deep wrinkles on your face. This filler uses a specialized technique to strengthen and plump your skin.
This filler contains a substance called poly-L-lactic acid. This ingredient will enable your body to make new collagen in your skin. This is one of our longest-lasting injectable products. After you receive your injections, your improvements might last for more than two years.
Kybella is an injectable product that contains an ingredient called deoxycholic acid. This product will remove extra fat that is located underneath your chin. During your treatment, you will receive multiple injections in the skin under your chin. Over time, your body will gradually remove some of the fat cells under your chin, and your profile will become slimmer.
Unlike our other injectables, Kybella is able to create permanent changes in your aesthetic issues. Your body will not regrow the fat cells that are eliminated during this injectable treatment. As a result, you will not need to get follow-up injections or other touch-up treatments in order to maintain the positive changes in your profile.
What Will Happen During My Injectable Treatment?
The details of your appointment will vary depending on the filler that you are receiving, your personal preferences, and other factors. However, all of our injectables are very gentle, and you will be able to complete your treatment during a brief outpatient appointment at our office in Pensacola.
Getting a Consultation
Before you receive any of our fillers, you will have a personalized consultation. During this appointment, we will determine whether you are eligible to receive your chosen filler. You should be ready to tell us about any allergies that you have, any fillers that you have received before, and any other health conditions that could affect your treatment.
Preparing for Your Appointment
If we decide that you are a good candidate for one or more of our injectable products, we will schedule your treatment session. We will also explain how to prepare for your injections. For example, we may tell you not to receive a chemical peel or use harsh anti-aging products before your treatment session. In addition, you should not tan your skin.
We may ask you to refrain from taking medications that thin your blood. You also should not drink alcohol before your appointment. Avoiding these substances can help your tissues quickly heal after your injections are complete.
Preparing Your Skin
We will begin your appointment by cleaning your skin and making sure that your facial tissues are healthy and free of irritations and infections. If you have an infection, we will need to reschedule your appointment.
Getting Your Injections
After your skin is ready, we might administer a numbing cream on your face. Next, we will inject your injectable filler into your skin. The injection process will be very straightforward and quick.
Many of our dermal fillers contain a numbing agent called lidocaine. The lidocaine in these products will allow you to feel relaxed as we improve your lips, cheeks, or other facial features. It will usually take us about 15 minutes to one hour to complete your injections.
Will I Have a Long Recovery Period After I Get My Injections?
Our injectables are very gentle, and you won’t have to schedule time away from your workplace, school, or other duties after you receive any of these products. However, you might need to make some very minor changes to your usual activities after your appointment is complete.
The changes that you make will depend on the type of filler that you received. For example, if you used one of the products in our Restylane collection to improve your look, we will probably advise you not to wear any makeup over your target area for the next 24 hours. In addition, we will probably tell you not to engage in rigorous exercise for the next one to two days.
Will My Injectable Treatment Produce Instant Changes in My Appearance?
All of our injectable products create very fast results. In fact, some of these products will produce instant changes in your appearance.
Juvedérm and Restylane Products
When you use one of the injectable fillers in the Juvedérm or Restylane collection to improve your look, you will notice immediate changes in your cheeks, lips, or other target areas. However, your body will need a short period of time to adjust to the presence of your new filler. As a result, you are likely to see the final impact of your treatment within about two weeks.
You will see positive changes in your skin as soon as you receive your Sculptra injections. Over time, the ingredients in this injectable filler will improve the amount of collagen in your skin. As the healthy collagen in your skin increases, your face will look fuller and more youthful. In general, you will see the full benefit of your improved collagen levels within about four to six months.
When we inject our Kybella product into the fat under your chin, you will not notice an instant improvement in your profile. In addition, you will probably need to receive multiple treatments to achieve dramatic changes in your double chin. You will wait several weeks between each of your injection sessions.
As you continue to get Kybella injections, your body will gradually remove your unwanted fat cells. You will usually see the final impact of your treatment plan after a couple of months.
Can I Use These Products to Improve My Look Before My Wedding Day?
It’s common to use injectable products and other beauty treatments to transform your look before your wedding day. In fact, we can help you create a specialized bridal beauty package that will allow you to feel confident and attractive on your special day. In general, we will advise you to schedule an initial consultation about 12 months before your wedding day.
During this consultation, we will discuss your beauty goals and recommend specific injectable fillers, facials, and other aesthetic treatments. For example, if you would like to fill in wrinkles or add volume to your face, we will probably advise you to receive Juvedérm or Restylane fillers about four months before your wedding day.
