The MedSpa at Wake Plastic Surgery proudly serves Cary, Raleigh, and the surrounding areas.
We are all getting older. We see it in the mirror and know that it is happening. But most of us do not necessarily “feel” older - we just look older. There are predictable signs of aging that happen to almost all of us. The skin starts to wrinkle and the structures of the face start to look more and more tired. Fortunately, there are some non-surgical ways to fight back against time that are safe and effective. Injectable fillers are extremely effective and can be used without significant risk or downtime to restore some of our more youthful characteristics.
Why choose Wake Plastic Surgery?
In theory, the techniques used for injectables can be taught to anyone. But many of the fine details that can optimize a result or minimize the risk of complications requires a complete understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the face. We see quite a few patients every year that have been disappointed after “bargain shopping” for injectables at the deal of the week location. In the end, it is your face and you should have 100% confidence in whoever is working on it for you.
Our experienced nurse injectors have the training and expertise to administer a variety of dermal fillers to achieve the best possible results in a safe, clean, and welcoming environment. Our style of treatment is conservative, so that you still look like you, just refreshed! Our nurse injectors also work with each patient’s unique facial anatomy, so there are no “cookie cutter” treatments.Schedule A Consultation
What areas are treated with facial fillers?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC for the nasolabial folds
The most obvious and significant improvement with facial fillers can be demonstrated when treating the crease that develops between the corner of the nose and the corner of the mouth called the nasolabial fold. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC or Restylane are excellent products used to treat this area. Treatment of the nasolabial folds can dramatically improve facial aesthetics for the properly selected patient.
Dermal filler applied to the marionette lines and nasolabial folds
As we age, a crease develops from the corner of the mouth down to the chin. The corner of the mouth can often start to turn downward along this crease line and giving people a “grumpy” appearance. Softening of these lines can be achieved with dermal fillers.
Restylane used to correct a mild tear trough deformity
The tear trough or nasojugal groove is a shadow that develops along the inner aspect of the lower eyelid. The extension of this groove along the lower rim of the orbit often turns into “dark circles” of the lower lid. The skin of the lower lid is extremely thin and addition of fillers in this area needs to be done precisely and conservatively. When done well, the results can be quite satisfying. Our providers prefers to use Restylane for this particular area of the face.
Two vials of Juvederm Voluma added to the zygoma
As we age, the volume of the cheek tends to shrink and descend off of the cheek bones. Adding volume back to the zygoma or cheek bone can restore a more youthful appearance to the face and can slightly reduce the depth of the nasolabial folds.
Juvederm Volbella XC used to enhance the lips and peroral wrinkles
The aging process often results in a gradual loss of lip volume which causes the tissues to appear dehydrated. Vertical wrinkles become more apparent both in the lips proper and in the skin immediately surrounding. Injectable fillers such as Juvederm Volbella can significantly improve this condition.
Which injectable fillers do our Medspa providers use?
We carry the full line of FDA approved Juvederm fillers. Juvederm filler gels are made with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body. Hyaluronic acid is important in maintaining healthy and smooth skin because it attracts water molecules making the skin look plump. As we age, our bodies start to slow down the production of this vital substance, which can contribute to loss of volume, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The hyaluronic acid fillers can be placed in certain areas of the face and jawline to help replenish the amount of hyaluronic acid there, helping to lessen the appearance of volume loss and wrinkles.
Will it hurt?
A common question our injectors hear is “Does getting filler hurt?” The short answer is, maybe a little bit! The longer answer is that our injectors want you to be as comfortable as possible during your appointment and will use a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. The dermal fillers also contain lidocaine so that it continues to numb the areas being treated from the inside. Our hope is that our patients only feel the initial pinch at the injection site.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
This dermal filler is great for treating deeper folds and wrinkles in the skin, such as the nasolabial folds, parenthesis lines around the mouth. It can also be used to enhance the lips, chin, and cheeks. This filler can last up to a year.
Juvederm Voluma XC
This dermal filler helps to sculpt and replenish volume loss in the upper cheek that comes naturally with aging. As we age you may notice that the side of the face is flatter, and not as curved anymore. This curve that starts at the top of the cheek bone to the jawline is called the “ogee curve” and dermal filler is a great non-invasive option to restore that youthful curve. This filler can last up to two years.
Juvederm Volbella XC
This dermal filler is perfect for the lips and lips lines because the type of gel in this filler is very soft and moves seamlessly with all the movements of our lips. It also can help smooth lines around the lips, commonly called “smoker lines.” This filler can last 6 months to a year.
This dermal filler helps soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can last up to 18 months.
The first and only FDA approved dermal filler, can define the jawline, and add shape and structure to the lower face.
Restylane L is a HA (hyaluronic acid) based dermal filler designed to restore structure and volume to the undereye area. Treating this area can help you look more refreshed. This filler can last up to 6 months to a year.
