Volumizing Cheeks & Filling Fine Lines, Albuquerque
To understand how fillers can help your appearance, you need to understand how the face ages. For starters, it’s not wrinkles that make us look old. It’s actually the creases, hollows and sagging created as the fat pad on the cheeks thins with age.
Fillers can restore lost volume. This lifts the face up and pulls out wrinkles. It is important to treat the face as a whole and understand how injecting higher up on the face can lift, reshape and smooth the lower half. You get a double benefit starting early. Fillers can physically restore contours and the micro-injury from the needle stimulates your own collagen production, which has a preventative effect on ageing.
Before & After Photos
How It Works
Today’s fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. The results are almost immediate and can last up to 12-18 months. Eventually, the filler breaks down and will start to dissipate. Most people who get fillers will need to schedule at least one follow-up injection within a year to maintain results.
Where Are Fillers Injected
Your face is like a canvas and your injector is the artist. There are a variety of choices when it comes to filler. Your nurse will make a recommendation on the best options to help achieve your desired results. Here are the areas that we can treat with filler at Flawless Med Spa.
- Marionette lines – lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial fold)
- Lines from the mouth to the chin (melomental fold)
- Smoker / Water-Bottle Lines – fine lines above the upper lip
- Volumize the upper or lower lip
- Restore volume to cheekbones or cheeks
- Jawline definition
How To Prepare
Please stop any blood thinning medications like Advil, Aleve, Motrin, or Ibuprofen along with flax seed supplements, fish oils, St, John’s Wart for 7 days prior to your treatment. We do our very best to inject in a way that minimizes bruising, however, we cannot guarantee that you will not bruise. Stopping these medications will help.
If you have any type of active breakout where we are injecting or cold sore around the lip area, we cannot treat you and will reschedule once the area has healed.
What To Expect
On the day of your appointment, you will meet with the nurse injector who will talk to you about the results you want to achieve. Flawless carries several products and choosing the right product will be based on the look you would like to attain. The nurse will take before and after photos, which are important when it comes tracking results.
The nurse will wash and clean your face. She will ask you to animate, smile, pucker, frown and will evaluate your facial symmetry. After the treatment, the nurse will clean your face; ice will be applied throughout the treatment to reduce any swelling. We will than apply sunscreen. You are welcome to bring and apply make up after your treatment.
After the procedure is complete you may have some minor swelling. Bruising is a possibility as the face is a highly vascular area.
Avoid strenuous exercise and give your face 24 hours to settle and the swelling to calm. We will schedule you for a follow-up appointment in two weeks where we will take photos to see if we need to make any adjustments.
If you want additional filler, you will need to pay for it at the appointment. If you are totally unhappy, we can inject you with a product that will complete dissolve the filler 100%. There will be an additional cost to dissolve the filler. If you have any questions, please call the spa 505-888-1185.
