Dermal Fillers

Introduction

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. At Seychelles Med & Laser Spa in The Woodlands, our team of talented nurses and technicians can provide you with a Dermal Filler that’s perfect for your aesthetic needs.

We understand that there are lots of options to choose from when it comes to fillers. During your consultation, we’ll provide you with our recommendations on what’s best for your skin and desired outcome. We strive to deliver the best dermal fillers in The Woodlands, while always practicing patient saftey. Below, we’ve included more information about the non-surgical procedure.

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting Dermal Fillers in The Woodlands is to schedule your one-on-one consultation with one of our skilled technicians. During this time, you will be able to ask questions about the Dermal Fillers we offer, address any concerns and aesthetic goals, and learn more about the treatment. Your technician will also be able to examine the area you are looking to enhance and suggest which Filler best suits your needs.

If you agree with the assessment, we can perform the injection right then and there, or you can schedule an appointment that is more convenient for you.

What to Expect on the Day of getting Dermal Fillers?

Although every Dermal Filler is slightly different, you should have a similar experience when you get the filler injection.

Your treatment will begin with strategic points that will be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the filler. Photographs may also be taken of the areas to be treated for comparison

Next, the injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent and a cold instrument may be used to chill the skin, and a numbing ointment will be applied. Depending on what is discussed during your consultation, you may have the option of an injection of local anesthesia.

Most patients find the procedure to be painless and the injections are typically easily tolerated.

Once the site is properly numb, the technician will begin the process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result in the targeted areas, adding additional filler when needed. Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process can last between 15 minutes up to an hour.

When you and your technician are satisfied with the results, any remaining markings will be cleansed off. You may be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort.

Although the area may feel a bit tender for a day or two, it is usually not painful enough to require any medication.

What Type of Dermal Fillers Does Seychelles offer?

At Seychelles, we offer some of the best dermal fillers on the market. We understand that every patient’s needs are personal and may react differently to the fillers, so rest assured that our knowledgeable technicians will explain which filler is best for you. Below are some of the Dermal Fillers we offer.

Sculptra

Sculptra is an FDA-approved, Poly-L-Lactic Acid that is both biocompatible and biodegradable and has been used in the U.S. since 1999. This injectable stimulator enhances and gradually restores lost facial volume by activating an increase in collagen production. Sculptra can be injected in the temple area, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionettes, and jaw line to help restore lost facial volume to the entire face.

At the beginning of your appointment, your face will be thoroughly cleansed, and a local anesthetic will be applied. The Sculptra is mixed with a small amount of lidocaine as well for your comfort. After the Sculptra is injected, you may experience redness, swelling, tenderness, mild pain, or bruising. Our Nurse Injector will provide a 5-minute facial massage following the procedure and teach you how to do your facial massage.

You will be expected to complete this massage for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days. This massage helps distribute the Sculptra evenly and ensures there are no areas of a concentrated product.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC was specifically designed to restore and lift the cheek area that has lost its shape due to normal aging.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is made of natural hyaluronic acid (HA), a major component of your skin. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC was developed to be smoother than other hyaluronic acid fillers, making it easier to inject during treatment and resulting in a soft, natural look and feel.

JUVÉDERM® XC

The first and only FDA-approved HA filler that uses the innovative HYLACROSS™ technology, JUVÉDERM XC is the first smooth-consistency gel that flows easily and consistently into the skin. It can be used in many face areas, such as the lips, nasal labial folds, and cheeks. Patients can expect smooth, natural-looking results with the improved comfort they want.

JUVÉDERM XC is injected into your skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” and “marionette lines.” JUVÉDERM XC temporarily adds volume to the skin and gives the appearance of a smoother surface. It is one of the few dermal fillers that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.

The process takes about 30 minutes with instant results that require no downtime and can last up to a full year with a single treatment.

JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over 21.

JUVÉDERM Vollure

JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC injectable gel is for adults over 21 for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and correction of perioral lines in adults over 21.

KYBELLA®

KYBELLA is a prescription medication used as a permanent solution to improve the appearance of submental fat below the chin, jowls, bra-fat, and other pesky small areas of fat or goodness. Sometimes diet and exercise alone may not help these areas, which can be caused by more than just weight. This treatment is completely tailored to each individual, as everyone’s needs are different.

Restylane®

The Restylane brand is the top-selling dermal filler in the world, with over 1.4 million treatments being done in more than 70 countries. These fillers are hydrophilic and the purpose is to add volume, thus diminishing or almost eliminating fine lines and wrinkles that show up on your face over time due to aging, smoking, and the effects of gravity and the sun. Numerous areas are possible for treatment, including lips, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines around the mouth and under the eyes.

The results of Restylane last about 6 months, although studies show that with one repeat injection, results can last up to 18 months.

Bio-Filler With Plasma Gel

Bio Filler is an all-natural filler created from PRF via a simple blood draw and used just like traditional fillers. It can be used on the face and hands to smooth and even your appearance, while continuing to stimulate growth factors, collagen, fibrin, and elastin over the next 3 months, creating a fuller, healthier look.

The procedure itself is brief with little to no downtime, producing immediate results. It is recommended to receive three separate treatments four weeks apart. There is a possibility of slight swelling, redness, or slight bruising to the areas of injections within the next 24 hours after your procedure, however, most candidates experience no side effects.

Results can last up to two years.

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are injections that add volume to your lips using a synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) — which is a natural substance found in your body. While they won’t stop the aging process, they can help delay the need for a more invasive surgical lip augmentation, like lip implants or a lip lift. They can also help you achieve the desired look, which can boost your self-esteem.

Cheek Fillers

Cheek fillers are injections designed to raise the volume of the area above and around your cheekbones. This provides the illusion of a more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under your skin layer, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

What is the downtime?

The recovery from Dermal Fillers will vary for each type of filler and can be different for each patient. You will be able to resume most activities right away, but we would recommend avoiding intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.

You should be able to notice a difference almost immediately following your injection, however, it should be noted that your initial appearance may include:

  • An “overfilled” appearance to treated areas
  • Hypersensitivity reaction that can seem like an allergic reaction with hives and swelling
  • Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites
  • Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe
  • Temporary numbness or redness

Most of these conditions can be alleviated by applying ice and a gentle massage but will improve within a few hours up to a few days. Very rarely, some reactions may require more aggressive treatment with medications or injections. Although uncommon, visual disturbances can also occur.

If you experience any pain or weakness on one side of your body, it is extremely important that you contact our office and receive care immediately.
