Dermal Fillers

Lip Fillers in Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, and Hesperia, CA

When we are young our skin looks healthy because there is an abundance of hyaluronic acid inside of it. This chemical keeps the skin’s elasticity strong and prohibits wrinkles from forming. With the passage of time however skin loses it’s ability to remain firm. This is primarily caused by reduced levels of hyaluronic acid within the body. As such skin loses structure and volume, which is when wrinkles, lines, and sagging begin to become noticeable. With the help of sunlight, time adds lines to our faces. The first lines to appear are almost always the “parentheses” on the sides of our smiles though these certainly aren’t the last.

As opposed to Botox which is a refined byproduct of the bacterium bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Juvederm is an injectable filler designed to eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face. Juvederm works to replace the hyaluronic acid that human skin loses with age. In doing so wrinkles and lines, especially those on the brow and forehead disappear. The secret to Juvederm is a manufacturing process known as Hylacross technology. This process is what gives the filler it’s smooth consistency.

Dermal Fillers Before and After*

Get an idea of what dermal fillers can do for you by looking at real patient photos. See how fillers can improve facial contours, reduce wrinkles, and enhance certain features. Notice that no two people experience identical results from their treatments. This is because different bodies respond to fillers in various ways. Therefore, individual results may vary.*

Dermal Fillers for Lip Augmentations

Dermal fillers have many uses, including lip augmentations. The formula is a smooth, clear gel of Hyaluronic Acid. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It works with elastin and collagen, keeping the skin supple, hydrated, and plump. As we age, like our skin, the lips begin to lose their youthfulness. Dermal fillers provide an easy, non-surgical way to plump, enhance, and restore the lips.

Health First Weight Loss and Skin Care provide Juvéderm fillers for lip augmentations. This collection includes formulations that enhance facial features, like the lips. Our lip Injections consist of Juvéderm® XC Plus. This popular filler adds fullness to lips for a more luscious, perfect pout.

Dermal Fillers for Hollow Under-Eyes

As we age, hollowness can affect the entire under-eye area to the upper cheeks or the small area directly below the eyes, known as the tear trough. In addition, the under-eye area can become hollowed due to several factors such as genetics, volume loss, or even environment and health factors such as excessive sun exposure or unhealthy habits like smoking. Whatever the cause, there is an easy and effective way to reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows and achieve a more restored, rejuvenated, and youthful look to the eyes and face.

Under-eye fillers reverse the noticeable signs of aging due to hollowness. One of the most popular uses for Hyaluronic acid fillers is relieving tired, sunken eyes that age your appearance. If you struggle with sunken, hollow under-eyes, fillers can help reverse the signs of aging and reduce the hollow look.

Fillers are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime. The best part, they achieve immediate results. Patients who commit to under-eye fillers see a visible, instant improvement in tired, sunken under eyes. Health First Medical is proud to now offer under-eye fillers to our patients. You can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve facial symmetry, and enhance the lips and cheeks, but they can also reduce deep indentations under the eyes.

Juvederm Volux XC For Jawline Enhancement

Jawline definition has become a sought-after cosmetic treatment in recent years. Men and women want to enhance their facial features without surgery. In response to this demand, Juvederm introduced a new product to their collection: Volux XC.

Juvederm Volux XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler specially designed to improve jawline definition. Unlike other HA fillers, Volux XC is much denser. It’s the perfect solution for restoring volume and structure to the lower face. The result is a smooth contour along the jawline. Jowls become less noticeable, so patients enjoy a more sculpted, youthful look.

Seeing And Maintaining Results

Juvederm patients normally begin to see noticeable results just as soon as the swelling that may accompany injections subsides; generally speaking this is two to three weeks post treatment. Once results become visible they are usually dramatic results and patients report looking years younger at this stage of treatment.

Like all anti-aging treatments, Juvederm is a temporary solution, albeit an effective one, to a permanent problem. Most patients that discontinue treatments report that their lines and wrinkles become noticeable again anywhere from 9 to 12 months from their last treatment. Most professionals recommend patients return for follow up injections prior to that time frame so as to preserve their smooth and more youthful appearance.

Getting Started

Patients new to Health First Medical Weight Loss & Skin Care will first meet with our resident physician in order to have their overall health assessed. Once a patient is deemed both healthy and a good candidate for Juvederm, treatments can begin right away. Injections are handled gently and are performed quickly so there is no long wait or delay in their day. Injections are virtually pain free with the vast majority of patients reporting feeling no more than a slight pinch or pressure.

How to Prepare for Your Facial Filler Appointment

Dermal filler injections are very safe and have a low risk of serious complications. However, it is natural for the treated area to become red, swollen, sensitive, and even bruised after treatment. You can decrease the severity of your post-injection symptoms by doing certain things before and after your appointment.

When you schedule dermal filler injections, we’ll give you instructions to follow in the days before your appointment. Here are some things we may ask you to do to prepare.

One Week Beforehand

One week before your scheduled appointment, we’ll instruct you to avoid supplements that can increase your risk of bruising or bleeding. These may include popular options like vitamin E, ginseng, and garlic. We’ll also instruct you to stop taking over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen. These medications can increase your risk of bruising and hamper your body’s natural blood-clotting processes.

Two Days Beforehand

When you’re two days out from your dermal filler injections, we recommend avoiding harsh skincare ingredients. These include retinoids, glycolic acid, tretinoin cream, and other similar anti-aging ingredients that increase skin sensitivity.

Don’t engage in grooming behaviors that could irritate your skin before your appointment. For at least two days before your appointment, refrain from waxing, tweezing, and bleaching the hair in the targeted treatment area. You should also avoid excessive exposure to sunlight during this time.

You may wish to begin using topical Arnica as directed to decrease post-treatment bruising. Arnica is an herb that’s commonly used to reduce inflammation and minimize bruising. However, it also contains a toxin that can be harmful to humans if used excessively. Therefore, it’s essential to only use this product as directed.

24 Hours Beforehand

Stop drinking alcohol and smoking at least 24 hours before receiving dermal fillers. Alcohol is a known vasodilator, which means it enhances blow flow. That’s why some people look very flushed and red after drinking. If you consume alcohol within 24 hours of your dermal filler appointment, you could experience increased blood flow to the skin. As a result, you may bleed more than normal from the injection sites, and your body may take longer to heal.

Smoking can also hamper your body’s ability to heal after dermal filler injections. It dehydrates the skin and decreases immune function. Therefore, we recommend stopping smoking for at least 24 hours before and after your appointment.

The Day of Your Appointment

On your appointment day, please arrive with a clean, makeup-free face. This will help minimize your risk of infection and make it easier for us to do our job.

What to Expect From Your Dermal Injectable Appointment

We encourage you to ask us any questions you have about how dermal fillers work before we begin your treatment. We want you to feel comfortable and know what to expect. When you’re ready, we’ll mark your face to map out the treatment areas. Then, we’ll inject a numbing agent or apply a topical cream to the area.

Once you’re comfortably numb, we’ll carefully begin injecting the fillers into the marked areas. This process can usually be completed in minutes. When we’re done, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions. Follow these instructions to minimize post-injection bruising, swelling, and discomfort.

Most people notice an instantaneous difference in their appearance after treatment. However, it’s important to keep in mind that your final results won’t show up until the swelling goes down. This usually takes a few days to a few weeks after treatment.

Post Treatment Support

Health First Medical Weight Loss & Skin Care values the health and well being of its clients above all else. It is for this reason that our team is always available for support after receiving injections. Questions and concerns can be addressed and a patients most recent treatment can be inspected if an individual feels it isn’t working as it should be. Customer satisfaction is important to us and by offering support after treatment has concluded we believe this helps foster trust and peace of mind in our patients.

Removing Facial Lines

Persons concerned with facial lines have several options available to them. Hesperia and Redlands Juvederm is one of the most popular and the most effective at mitigating or removing lines completely. Juvederm works at replacing the hyaluronic acid that has been lost to time. Treatments will smooth away all the wrinkles and folds on your face and leave you looking fantastic.

So how exactly does Juvederm work so well? Manufactures employ something called Hylacross technology which gives it a smooth gel like property. This consistency allows it to do its job for as much as up to one year with just one single treatment.

Administering Treatments

Many people interested in Juvederm often wonder how treatments are administered. Some believe it to be a gel that’s applied directly to the face and others believe it to be medication that is meant to be ingested. In truth, Juvederm is administered via shots directly in facial tissue. Those whom administer Juvederm always use an ultra-fine needle for comfort and make their injections into the areas of the face requiring the most attention.

At What Age Should I Start Getting Fillers?

There is no “right” age to start getting aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers. Some people begin as young as their early 20s. Others may wait until they’re between the ages of 40 and 50 because that’s when facial wrinkles typically become more pronounced. If you’re wondering whether you can benefit from dermal filler treatments now, schedule a consultation. We’ll make personalized treatment recommendations based on your current facial features and aesthetic goals.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Juvederm XC helps replace the HA your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm XC achieves its smooth consistency due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS technology.

HYLACROSS gives Juvederm XC its unique smooth-gel properties as well as robust gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvederm XC is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved *to last up to 1 year with only 1 treatment.

The treatment process is simple. Depending on your treatment plan, you can be in and out of the spa within 30-60 minutes. Before delivering the injections, we’ll assess your facial structure and determine the appropriate filler. Then, we’ll inject Volux XC into the targeted areas. You’ll start to notice an improvement in definition and contour after the swelling subsides post-treatment.

Juvederm Volux XC is an excellent option for those seeking a non-surgical solution to restore lost volume, reduce drooping, and improve the definition of the chin and jawline. Our patients love this solution because it requires minimal downtime, yet produces long-lasting results. They enjoy significant improvement in the appearance of their lower face for up to about 12 months.1

In general, it’s safe for men and women aged 21 and up to get dermal fillers like Juvederm Volux XC.

Although Juvederm is safe, as is the case with anything else, there are sometimes side effects to consider. In the case of Juvederm however the most severe side effects reported are mild swelling, tenderness, or itching at injection sites. These side effects typically do not last more than a few days but make remain for up to one week. In addition to side effects patients should avoid strenuous exercise immediately following treatment as well as excessive exposure to both the sun and heat. Ignoring these suggestions may result in swelling and temporary redness. Women whom wear makeup will also want to consult with our in house physician in order to determine when it is once more safe to apply cosmetics.

Juvederm has been deemed safe by the FDA and is used as a soft tissue filler in additional medical procedures, particularly those associated with HIV treatments. Of course, as is the case with all medicine, some patients will experience some minor side effects. Fortunately the redness, bruising, and itching sometimes associated with Juvederm is minor and lasts no more than a few days.

No matter how well you look after your skin, you’ll eventually need to come back for more dermal fillers for optimal anti-aging results. But you can maximize Juvederm’s benefits by practicing a solid skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle:

  •  Follow aftercare instructions
  •  Avoid sun exposure
  •  Drink plenty of water
  •  Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
  •  Avoid smoking
  • Use high-quality skincare products (i.e. moisturizer, toner, and cleanser)

Administering dermal fillers requires special expertise. Using too much of it can lead to negative long-term effects. But by trusting a skilled provider like Health First Medical Weight Loss and Skin Care, you can use dermal fillers to enhance your facial features instead of speeding up aging.

Dermal fillers make facial rejuvenation accessible to patients of all ages. But of course, it’s important to have realistic expectations. For patients over 60, the main goal of injectables is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They won’t completely disappear, but the results look natural and flattering.
