Our products come in the form of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler products replace lost volume to smooth away wrinkles and define facial contours providing immediate results. It can be used to visibly reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds for a more youthful appearance.
Our Nurse Practitioner will complete a thorough review of your heath history, perform a physical examination, discuss your treatment goals, and review potential adverse events and management strategies if such events occur. A local or topical anesthetic is typically utilized to block the nerve endings to reduce pain during treatment. Your skin will then be cleansed and sterilized with Stanhexidine 2% with 4% isopropyl alcohol. Depending on location and area being treated, injections may be completed by the use of serial injections with an ultra fine needle, and/or a cannula (a sterile plastic needle) to instill the clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. We will then review post-procedure care.
You will see results immediately.
You can return to normal activity after the procedure. However, we do recommend the following:
- Not touching, rubbing, or manipulating the injection area
- Avoiding extreme heat (sun exposure, sauna, tanning beds) for 2 to 3 days
- Avoiding strenuous activity for 2 to 3 days
- Avoiding the application of makeup for at least 24 hours
Results of hyaluronic dermal filler injections can typically last between 6 to 18 months depending on location and product utilized. Hence, maintaining this effect is up to you, and this puts you in control of the way you look.
Hyaluronic dermal filler is not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women, anyone with a history of an allergic reaction to the drug or any of its active ingredients (collagen, eggs, or lidocaine), as well as any infected or inflamed skin, bleeding disorders, and individuals with a tendency to produce excessive scarring such as keloids and/or hypertrophic scars. Please inform us if you have or are experiencing any of the mentioned conditions.
The vast majority of patients do not experience any side effects. Common and minor side effects include infection, local irritation, minor bruising at the injection sites, and headache. Rare side effects include tissue and retinal necrosis, embolism, or serious allergic reaction. Please contact us immediately if you experience increased pain or unforeseeable swelling after your treatment.
Each individual has different needs. Here at Infinite Medical Spa dermal filler injections are calculated on a “per syringe” basis. This means our Nurse Practitioner will need to determine the precise amount of product needed to attain your desired results. Contact us today for a consultation.
