DERMAL FILLERS

DERMAL FILLERS ARE

Injectable medications that contain hyaluronic acid that is used to plump up areas of treatment. At The Youth Fountain we use these products to help enhance shallow contours, plump the lips, soften facial creases, and improve the look of recessed scars.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND A DERMAL FILLER?

Botox is made from the botulinum toxin and is designed to relax the tiny muscles in the face that allow you to furrow your brow, squint, and frown. Because you can no longer move those muscles to create the wrinkle, it keeps your skin in better condition over time. Dermal fillers work by immediately volumizing the area that is injected.

WHAT CAN BE TREATED WITH DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal fillers can be used at the corners of the mouth to treat a downturned smile, to fill nasolabial folds (smile lines), to smooth-out smokers lines around the lips, to reshape chin lines, to add more definition to cheeks, to fill in the tear troughs (for those who feel they have "sunken" eyes), to correct brow lines, reshape their temples or forehead, add more definition to the jawline, and plump and shape the lips! Dr. Shakov will discuss all treatment options with you during your appointment.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT?

Dr. Shakov will assess the potential treatment areas and explain how dermal fillers may improve or enhance the area you are looking to treat.

AFTER THE ASSESSMENT IS DONE,

A topical anesthetic is placed on the injection site and after several minutes Dr. Shakov will clean the area and begin injecting the appropriate areas.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Dr. Shakov will never rush any of these treatments. At The Youth Fountain, we give each of our patients our complete attention to make sure the treatment is successful and the patient is pleased with their result.

Does It Hurt?

We try to take all measures to decrease any pain or discomfort with the treatments. With the use of a topical anesthetic and a vibrational distractor, the process is very tolerable. Also, the dermal fillers have an anesthetic mixed into the syringe which lessens the discomfort.

As with all facial injections there is a risk of swelling, redness and possible vascular complications. Dr. Shakov will review all these risks with you during the consultation and the procedure.

No. If you are planning on becoming pregnant, currently are, or breast feeding you should avoid these treatments. Further, patients with a history of allergic or anyone who has an active skin infection at the proposed injection site should not do the procedure. It should also be avoided by patients who are on blood-thinning medications as that can increase bruising and bleeding

No

It depends on the desired outcome. Some treatments may require multiple sessions to avoid over-filled appearance or bad outcomes.
