Our Approach to Volume Replacing & Enhancing with Fillers

At Functional Beauty, we don't simply add features to your face when using fillers for facial augmentation. Instead, our approach focuses on achieving balance, ensuring that your facial features harmonize seamlessly. This dedication prevents an overdone appearance, maintaining a natural and subtle look.

About Filler

Dermal filler is a hyaluronic acid gel used to restore facial volume as well as enhance and sculpt features. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in the skin that plays a crucial role in maintaining hydration and suppleness. In fillers, it is produced through a synthetic, bio-compatible process which reduces the risk of allergic reactions.

There are several brands of HA fillers available, including Restylane, RHA, and Juvederm. Each brand and filler has different formulations and consistencies, allowing for customization based on the specific treatment area and desired results. Your provider at Functional Beauty will choose the best and safest option to provide you with exceptional and natural-looking results.

Filler Uses

HA fillers are versatile, and when administered by your skilled Functional Beauty provider, they can elegantly address a variety of concerns related to facial aging and volume loss. Some common concerns that can be effectively treated are:

Nasolabial Folds: These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Fillers can help reduce the appearance of these folds, restoring a more youthful look.

Marionette Lines: These lines extend downward from the corners of the mouth, and fillers can be used to lift and smooth this area.

Chin: Can be used to augment the chin, improving the overall balance and harmony of facial features.

Jawline Definition: Can enhance the definition of the jawline, providing a more sculpted and youthful appearance.

Cheeks: Can add volume to the cheeks, restoring a more youthful contour and addressing age-related volume loss.

Lips: Used to enhance lip volume, shape, and definition. They can address thin lips or asymmetry.

Tear Troughs: The under-eye area can develop hollows or dark circles over time. Fillers can be strategically injected to improve volume and reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows.

Temples: Can restore lost volume in the temples, creating a more youthful and balanced facial appearance. This helps contour and bring harmony to the face by addressing hollow or sunken areas in the temple region.

Hand Rejuvenation: Can be applied to the hands to restore volume and reduce the appearance of age-related volume loss and wrinkles.

What To Expect

1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation where your provider will listen to your concerns and formulate a plan based upon your unique anatomy, skin type, and goals.

2. Prep: Before the injection, your provider will cleanse the treatment area to ensure it's free from oils and makeup.

3. Injection: Your provider will use a fine needle or a cannula to inject the HA filler into the predetermined treatment areas. They will strategically place the filler to achieve the desired results while ensuring a natural and balanced appearance. You may feel slight pressure or a pinching sensation during the injections, but the discomfort is generally minimal.

4. Assessment and Adjustments: Throughout the procedure, your provider may periodically assess the results and make adjustments as needed. This ensures that the filler is distributed evenly, and the desired outcome is achieved.

5. Post-Treatment Care: After the injections, you will be provided with post-treatment care instructions. This may include avoiding certain activities, such as intense exercise, for a brief period. It's important to follow any recommended guidelines to optimize the results and minimize the risk of side effects.

6. Immediate Results: The results of your filler treatment are often visible immediately, however it can take up to 2 weeks for the filler to completely settle. There may be some initial swelling or redness at the injection sites. This is typically temporary and will subside over a few days.

7. Follow-Up: Depending on the type of filler used and your individual response, you may be advised to schedule a follow-up appointment to assess the results and determine if any touch-ups are needed.

8. Duration of Results: The longevity of HA filler results varies, but they generally last from several months to over a year. Maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the desired effect.
