Do you wish to restore facial volume loss that has occurred over time? Do you want a treatment for facial lines and wrinkles that have developed with collagen and elastin loss? At Timeless Medical Aesthetics & Wellness, we believe patients should maintain their youthful looks over time without the need for plastic surgery. If you are looking for solutions to restore facial fullness and smooth wrinkles and folds, dermal fillers might suit you. Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical option for increasing volume in the cheeks and lips.

Katherine Cooper is a Nurse Practitioner who injects dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid injectable gels that are created to immediately restore volume and smooth lines for several months before reinjection is needed
WHAT AREAS CAN DERMAL FILLERS ADDRESS?
Many areas of the face can be improved with the help of our line of quality dermal fillers available at Timeless Medical Aesthetics & Wellness. Injections can be used to restore facial volume, treat facial lines, improve facial fullness, and add volume in places such as the lips, and cheeks.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one:
--If you have a history of herpes (cold sores) with outbreaks more than 4 times a year it is recommended that you are pretreated with an anti-viral medication. **Please let us know that you need a prescription if you do not have this medication on hand.**
--If you develop a cold/flu, cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. in the area to be treated prior to your appointment, you must reschedule (we will not treat you).
--It is recommended, if you have a special event or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment 4 weeks in advance.
--It is recommended you discontinue the use of Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising and bleeding.
--It is recommended that you avoid: alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. (All of these factors may increase risk of bruising)
Bruising and swelling are likely. The swelling typically lasts for 24 hours but patients can feel puffy (especially the lips) for 48 hours after treatment. The worst of the swelling is usually the morning after your lip filler. It is not recommended that you be treated with filler 4 weeks before a special occasion. Patients can take arnica and pineapple starting a few days before your appointment to help minimize the bruising and swelling.
--Do NOT, touch, press, rub, or manipulate the implanted areas for 6 hours after treatment. You can cause irritation, sores, and or problems, and possible scarring if you do.
--Avoid Vigorous Exercise and Sun and Heat exposure for 3 days after treatment. -We recommend you AVOID Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week after treatment.
--It is best to wear no makeup or lipstick until the next day. Earlier use can cause pustules. If you must wear makeup we recommend good quality mineral makeup. -------We recommend you AVOID: alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment
--Regarding your Lips: “Don’t Love Them or Hate Them for 2 weeks. You must wait 2 weeks before retreating or correction.
****Please report any “increased pain and increased swelling”, redness, blisters, or itching immediately****
WHAT OTHER TYPES OF INJECTIONS MIGHT I CONSIDER FOR THE TREATMENT OF FACIAL LINES?
Talk to us about neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. Combining many of these cosmetic injectables can provide a complete “liquid facelift” with dramatic results.
WHY WE LOVE DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers are great to correct fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss to the face. We can bring harmony to the overall look of your face while drawing the attention to all your best features and minimizing ones you don’t love. Fillers are all about how the light hits your face and contour. While Botox treatments are better at preventing lines and wrinkles fillers are better at correcting them. Dermal filler results are immediate and generally last one to two years, where you have to wait 2 weeks for full results with Botox and results last three months.
