Filler Testimonial

Still Deciding on Whether Filler is Right for You?

Have you been contemplating adding a filler to your beauty regime but are still unsure about making that decision? Are you wondering if fillers will make you look “overdone” or “fake”? Are you wondering about the cost and how long they will last? Are you concerned about the risks involved? Well, you have come to the right place to find out!

Fillers have been evolving since the early 1990s.

Fillers have been around for many years. In the early 1990s, fillers were made from bovine collagen that only lasted a few months. Clients were required to get an allergy test prior to injections and these fillers were focused on just plumping up an area of the face. In the early 2000s Restylane entered the beauty world as the first non-animal, FDA approved facial filler with a variety of injection options. Juvaderm and other products followed shortly thereafter promising longer lasting and safer, more natural results for clients of all age ranges. Today we have a wide range of amazing products that are making faces more beautiful and younger looking at affordable prices.

How Do Fillers Work and What are the Benefits?Filler before and after

Fillers have come a long way since their invention and so have the applications. The natural aging process takes away volume and structure from our faces.

As we age, fat, muscle, bone and skin all deteriorate resulting in a thinner, sunken and sagging result. The wide array of fillers we have at our disposal today can address fine lines, volume loss, folds, wrinkles and thin lips. They have the ability to fill in what has been lost in our face and turn back the years of aging.

When filler is injected properly and in the right amount, a very natural and rejuvenated look is possible on any client. The goal of filler is never to be overdone or dramatic. When you see an individual or celebrity with obvious filler in their face they have missed the point of using them.

They are there to rebuild and naturally enhance what was already there, not to create something new or fake. A good injector can advise you about the correct product for the job and the perfect amount to achieve a rejuvenated look.

A client will have an immediate initial result after filler application that will continue to improve over the following weeks. The longevity of the filler will depend on the type that is injected but will last a minimum of 6 months and can last as long as 2 years.

Restylane and Juvaderm products are part of the hyaluronic acid family of fillers that is considered the safest and most natural looking for the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is one of the main components of connective tissue.

This acid is the base for these fillers because of its hydrophilic and building characteristics in the skin. It is easily accepted by the surrounding tissue and is broken down slowly over time in the body. This type of filler is also reversible, which is important when it comes to adverse events. Yes, even these most advanced and approved fillers have risks involved.

What Are the Risks of Fillers?

Expected side effects of filler injections include swelling, redness and bruising. These usually resolve in a few days and no additional issues are involved. Infection and vascular occlusion are considered adverse events and require intervention when they do occur. These are both rare events, but they do happen and having a highly educated injectionist is of the utmost importance.

Research your Provider and Choose a Trained and Experienced Injectionist.

A trained injector will be able to identify an issue early on and can take the appropriate steps to remedy the problem. There are many injectors out there that are trained very thoroughly and have extensive experience injecting fillers but it is always advised for clients to do their homework on who their injectionist is and how much experience they possess.

Since 2012, there has been an 85% increase in individuals receiving facial fillers and it has not slowed down since. Today’s fillers are safe and approved for a wide variety of treatments. 

How Much Do Fillers Cost?

The cost of individual syringes of filler vary from $650-$850 and the price usually is directly related to the amount of time it is expected to last. The best course of action for anyone considering facial filler is to schedule an appointment for a complimentary consultation to discuss desired outcomes, different filler types and expected results with your chosen provider. The nurse injectors at Grand Medical Spa have a combined experience of 10 years of experience using a variety of filler products and are happy to sit down and answer any additional questions you might have.
