An effective filler treatment can make an immense difference to your appearance and should involve consulting with an experienced practitioner, discussing facial structure and goals, reviewing ingredients used, assuring product safety, and reviewing patient testimonials.
Cosmetic injectables like Botox and dermal fillers can effectively address dynamic fine lines and wrinkles, enhance facial contouring, and restore volume loss. Both solutions may achieve these goals.
Lip fillers can help boost your confidence by creating more volume and definition in your lips. It is a popular treatment among both women and men who feel self-conscious about naturally thin lips or those who have lost volume due to age. Treatment typically lasts about 15 minutes, with topical anesthesia used during treatment for maximum comfort.
Dermal fillers typically employ hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within your skin that retains moisture and youthful suppleness. When added as filler material, this binds with water molecules to increase volume in treated areas. Different concentrations of this acid exist across dermal filler products – an experienced injector can determine which will yield optimal results for you.
Some lip filler products, like Restylane Kysse and Juvederm Volbella XC, are specifically tailored for lips. These fillers help enhance and smooth wrinkles around them while simultaneously plumping up lips. Meanwhile, other fillers, like Juvederm Ultra XC and Vollure XC, can be used both on upper and lower lips; our physician will explain their differences during a consultation to assist you in selecting an ideal filler for you.
When scheduling lip filler injections, it is best to plan at least two weeks to allow your skin enough time to heal and achieve your desired look. In addition, during this period, you should refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol; ice packs can be applied directly to the treatment site to decrease swelling and bruising.
Lip fillers can be combined with other cosmetic treatments for a comprehensive rejuvenation experience. Laser resurfacing techniques like Thermage and Fraxel can tighten the skin around the mouth and diminish fine lines, while more subtle injections of hyaluronic acid fillers may be ideal for mature patients fearful that having larger volumes would look artificial.

Dermal fillers are soft tissue injections that address wrinkles, thin skin, dark circles,, and other signs of facial aging. Dermal fillers use an injectable gel containing naturally occurring hyaluronic acid found within our bodies for added wrinkle correction and further cosmetic enhancement.
This substance draws water into the face, helping give volume and structure. As a result, smoother, younger-looking, and radiant skin results.
Fillers administered via injection are quick, painless, and require no downtime for treatment. Some redness or bruising may arise following treatment but should quickly diminish; you should be able to return to work and other activities immediately following this procedure.
Liquid Lifts can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the cheek, mouth, lips, and eye areas and restore lost chin/jawline definition. They are often performed during an office visit rather than more invasive surgical procedures.
Injectables can help restore the round and full contours of the face as people age – which is one key to appearing younger. A study of identical twins demonstrated this; observers rated those with rounder faces as appearing younger. As people age, facial volume loss and sagging tissues contribute to lines, wrinkles, and folds becoming visible on their faces. This results in a hollowed-out appearance of aging people’s features.
Fillers are available to combat signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane-L and Juvederm Ultra Plus are popular choices; these synthetic gels attract water into the skin to increase volume. Restylane-L and Juvederm Ultra Plus injections can be injected into cheeks, nasolabial folds (between nose and mouth), and other areas of facial structure to add volume while diminishing wrinkles.
Autologous fat injections are another popular filler that uses autologous fat derived from another part of your body through liposuction and injecting it directly into the facial region to soften wrinkles in your forehead and cheeks, lasting for two or more years.
Select an experienced medical provider when performing these procedures. Salons, spas, and home visits should be avoided by seeing a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist with proven experience using similar products.
Botox injections offer those looking for a younger appearance an effective means of diminishing dynamic fine lines and wrinkles, including forehead creases, vertical lines between eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox is considered a less invasive alternative to surgical facelifts or eyelid lifts.
Botox, an injectable neuromodulator of botulinum toxin type A protein, works by blocking nerve signals to targeted facial muscles and relaxing them to contract less often, leading to decreased wrinkles. Unlike dermal fillers made of collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite, Botox does not add volume. Instead, it is a temporary fix for fine lines and wrinkles, needing touch-up injections every three to six months for best results.

Botox has many medical uses beyond cosmetic enhancement, from treating overactive bladder to smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections can reduce severe muscle spasms associated with cervical dystonia and help reshape jawlines to minimize the appearance of jowls or double chins.
Botox stands out among other facial fillers by producing subtle yet lasting results, with most lines and creases dissolving days after treatment and its effects usually lasting four months or so. Combining with dermal fillers for more comprehensive rejuvenation makes an ideal noninvasive solution to early signs of aging; visit a dermatologist with extensive training in Botox and dermal fillers for optimal results.
At the hands of an experienced cosmetic injector, dermal fillers can create a natural-looking facial aesthetic that enhances and balances your features while remaining undetectable to others. Your entire facial appearance and beauty depends upon each piece being balanced, but aging, gravity, sun damage, and other environmental factors may cause some areas to lose volume, develop fine lines and wrinkles, or sag over time. Dermal fillers offer a solution.
At Charmed Medispa, we’re pleased to offer a holistic approach, pan-facial rejuvenation, to address these concerns. This advanced technique combines neuromodulators and dermal fillers to rejuvenate your facial features, restore their shape, and simultaneously reduce multiple signs of aging.
One cornerstone of our pan-facial rejuvenation treatment is using dermal fillers that vary in consistency, thickness, and G-prime to target specific areas for more natural-looking results. These may include fillers based on hyaluronic acid like Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse and non-HA dermal fillers like Sculptra.
Dermal fillers combined with neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can provide a non-surgical facelift and neck lift without surgery. This combination procedure is ideal for diminishing dynamic wrinkles without resorting to more invasive surgical measures.
An ideal candidate for a facelift should be someone looking for a dramatic yet natural-looking transformation who wants their entire face addressed at once. Pan-facial rejuvenation techniques evaluate all parts of the face at once rather than individually assessing certain areas.
At your consultation with Dr. Michele Green, she will go over all the treatments available for a facial rejuvenation procedure.
