How Long Does Dermal Filler Swelling Last?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers, Injectables, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
Patients can experience swelling following any type of dermal filler injection. While not every patient will have swelling after fillers, those that do often want to get rid of it as soon as possible. There are many ways to address swelling, though how long swelling lasts will largely depend on individual factors. For patients who do experience swelling often want to know, “How long does dermal filler swelling last?” In most cases, swelling will completely subside within two weeks. With that said, swelling usually becomes imperceptible or unnoticeable in a week. To prevent and aid in the reduction of swelling, there are some things you can do.  Immediately following injections, you should plan not to partake in any strenuous activities for around twenty-four hours. Light exercise and most daily activities are fine. However, you should especially avoid anything in the area where you received filler. For most areas, this may include bending forward or unnecessary lip movements (for lip filler). Elevating the head of the bed the night after your injections can also reduce the chances of swelling. Also, certain over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen and aspirin can worsen swelling. Avoiding these medications for a couple of days before and after your procedure can help prevent swelling. If you do experience swelling, continuing to avoid these medications may help. Additionally, some supplements such as Arnica Montana may promote a reduction in swelling.  To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Juvederm Bellevue: What Juvederm Is Best For Lips?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers | No Comments
Juvederm makes a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers for various areas of the face including the cheeks, folds, and lips. Lip filler continues to be one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the United States. Juvederm is one of the top filler manufacturers for lips. However, Juvederm offers many filler options. What Juvederm is best for lips? Most Juvederm fillers can achieve a good result in the lips. As far as what filler was designed specifically for use in the lips, that would include Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. The injectors at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery routinely use Juvederm fillers in the lips and can determine which Juvederm product will give you the best results. Juvederm Ultra Plus consists of a thicker formula than Juvederm Ultra. It also tends to last longer. This thicker formula may not suit all lip filler patients or goals. Patients who want extremely subtle results or who want a more malleable filler may find that Juvederm Ultra best serves their needs. In general, Juvederm lip fillers last between three months and one year depending on the filler you receive and biological factors. Juvederm can provide subtle to dramatic results and is an all around versatile product for lip filler injections. To learn more about Juvederm and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Are Fillers The Only Lip Augmentation Option?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers, Fat Transfer, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.    Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip.    Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers.    To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Why Facial Volume Is So Important

By | Juvederm®, Injectables, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
As we age, our faces slowly lose volume. As the issue progresses, the eyes can take on a sunken appearance, folds and wrinkles can start to form, and the entire face may begin to look withered. If facial-volume loss is taking a heavy toll on the natural beauty of your face, it may be time to look into what dermal fillers can do for you. Dermal fillers are special injectable products that are designed to restore lost facial volume. When injected into the desired area, the dermal fillers help to fill in and lift the skin, which reduces the appearance of folds and wrinkles and enhances the contours of the face. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we utilize Restylane and Juvederm products. Both of these products utilize hyaluronic acid, a substance that can be found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid helps to strengthen, nourish, and hydrate the skin. When injected into the desired areas, Restylane and Juvederm products instantly add volume and help retain moisture in the skin. These injectables are the ideal choice for filling in folds and wrinkles and restoring the full appearance of your cheeks. Both Restylane and Juvederm offer results that look incredibly natural. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Craig Jonov can discuss the benefits of each product in order to help you find the one that can provide you with your ideal aesthetic results.
