Injectable Fillers

Today’s injectable fillers deliver instant results that last may last up to a year, making this popular and safe treatment more affordable than ever before.

Injectable filler treatments are the quickest way to achieve many beauty goals without much downtime. They can:

  • Smooth Wrinkles
  • Restore Lost Volume
  • Enhance the Lips
  • Fill in Tear Troughs below the Eyes

The results can be “uplifting” and remarkable; yet subtle enough that no one will have to know your secret.

Please Request a Consultation to learn more about the improvements that non-surgical cosmetic treatments like JUVEDERM® XC and other injectable fillers can make in your appearance.

The Best Candidates

The best candidates for injectable fillers are just becoming concerned about the signs of aging, yet aren’t quite ready to commit to facial cosmetic surgery. Other good candidates for injectable fillers are those who desire added fullness to accentuate areas of the face, such as the lips or the cheekbone area. Fillers also may be a good “touch up” option for women and men who have already had a surgical procedure.

Injectable Filler Options:

JUVEDERM XC® is a smooth gel filler formulated with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and infused with lidocaine for added comfort. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that our body produces naturally, but diminishes with age. It has a tremendous ability to bind with water, thereby having a “plumping” effect to the skin. JUVEDERM XC® replaces lost volume to instantly smooth wrinkles and folds, and to provide more youthful contours. One treatment may last up to a year; although this may vary.There are two formulations available from our med spa: JUVEDERM® XC Ultra, formulated for versatility and contouring, and JUVEDERM® XC Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for correcting deeper wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved that can instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years; although, your experience may vary. This treatment can be performed for anyone age 21 and older. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
The newest FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler, BELOTERO BALANCE®, provides more flexibility to treat superficial lines. BELOTERO’s unique properties allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. This treatment is perfect for smoothing fine lines above the lip and etched lines on the mid face. BELOTERO® also has the versatility to treat deeper areas such as the nasolabial folds.
Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. It replaces lost collagen to provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Most patients will need three injection appointments over a period of a few months for maximum results, but the number of injections vary from person to person. The end result is a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last 2 years or more; although this varies from patient to patient.
Similar to JUVEDERM® XC, Restylane® L and Perlane®L are hyaluronic acid-based fillers infused with lidocaine for added comfort. Perlane® consists of larger particles to treat deeper areas while Restylane’s smaller particles are better suited for treating other areas of the face, such as the lips.
RADIESSE® is a unique, calcium-based injectable made of microspheres suspended in a smooth gel matrix. The formula works with the body to actually stimulate new collagen growth, rebuilding your skins’ foundation from the bottom up. This treatment is ideal for overall facial contouring and to treat areas with moderate to severe volume loss. The results from RADIESSE® are instantaneous and long lasting due to its ability to promote collagen formation at the site of injection. One treatment may last a year or longer; although your actual experience may vary.

How Injectable Fillers Work

All injectable fillers are designed to replace age related volume loss, provide structure and support to underlying tissues, or to add volume to enhance facial features. While the formulations may vary, each brand has it’s own advantages. We understand the importance of giving our patients options, as everyone’s needs are unique.

Injectable fillers are administered with a superfine needle to the targeted area. Many of our fillers are formulated with lidocaine for added comfort. The most common areas for treatment are:

  • Nasolabial Folds (“parenthesis” lines between the nose and corner of the mouth)
  • Lips and Lines Above the Lip
  • Fine to Severe Lines and Wrinkles
  • Cheeks, Hollows Under the Eyes, and Temples
  • Jawline (to camouflage jowl formation)

Experience Matters

Artistry and technique are skills learned only by experience. These traits are very important factors for an ideal outcome with cosmetic injectables. Our progressive approach to injectable fillers is designed to achieve balanced, natural looking results. It’s not just about filling in a wrinkle; it’s about facial contouring that will enhance your unique features. You will have peace of mind knowing that you are in the best hands with our seasoned injectors at our Raleigh, NC med spa.

What to Expect

Before your treatment, a detailed consultation is necessary to develop a treatment plan that’s uniquely designed for your appearance goals. A treatment session usually takes less than an hour, depending on the areas treated. The cost of treatment depends on the amount of injectable filler needed for full correction. Injectable fillers are often used as just one component of a more comprehensive treatment plan to help you look younger and more refreshed. Fillers can be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments to combat dynamic wrinkles, or skin resurfacing treatments such as Fraxel® Dual for an all-over youthful glow.

After Your Treatment

Results of your treatment are immediate, and there is no real downtime associated with injectables. You should expect some redness and mild swelling that usually subsides in a day. Bruising may occur in some individuals, but is typically mild and can be camouflaged with make up. If you are prone to bruising, we will advise you to refrain from blood thinning agents such as aspirin or fish oils prior to your appointment. You should give the injection time to settle in, so avoid massaging or rubbing your face for the first 24 hours after your treatment.

The New You

Start the day with wrinkles or folds, and end it with smooth skin; it really is possible with an injectable filler treatment. The skin-smoothing effects should be visible from several months to a year, depending on the patient, filler, and area treated. Simple maintenance treatments make it easy to preserve your new look. Davis & Pyle Plastic Surgery has helped men and women from all over North Carolina, including Durham and Chapel Hill, enjoy a positive, rewarding and comfortable cosmetic surgery experience.
