Have you heard of the liquid facelift?

Liquid facelift bucks county

You may know someone who had a facelift, but have you heard about something called the liquid facelift? It’s a term used for a certain non-surgical treatment that can provide the benefits of a facelift without incisions, anesthesia or any downtime. Let’s cover the basics so you know why the liquid facelift has become a popular treatment for so many people. 

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation. These dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, leaving you looking years younger in the process. Generally Botox injections and dermal filler injections such as Juvederm or Restyalne are used for liquid facelifts.

What can you expect with a Liquid Facelift?

During a liquid facelift, dermal fillers and Botox are used to add volume, lift, contour the midface.

These dermal fillers are then used to sculpt and refine the jawline, chin, add volume to lips and reduce wrinkles from the forehead with Botox. 

The liquid facelift is highly customizable and four syringes or more of dermal fillers may be needed depending on the areas of your face you want to focus on.

It’s  best to get a consultation at a reputable medspa with a certified medical injector who will create a liquid face lift plan for you. 

The results of a liquid facelift can last anywhere between a year or two, depending on the dermal fillers used.

To see if you are a candidate for a liquid facelift, it’s best to start with a consultation.

If you are looking into doing a liquid facelift or searching for a provider that does lip injections, jawline contouring, or would like to reduce wrinkles from your forehead with Botox and you live in or around the Bucks County, PA area, request your free consultation at Healthy Solutions Medspa online, or give us a call at (267) 388-0300.

Everything You Need To Know About Eye Filler

Tired of looking tired? Others feel the same, and far more than you’d think! If you dislike your under eye bags, under eye filler may provide a solution.

Why Get An Under Eye Filler Treatment?

“Dark circles” under your eyes, or “under-eye bags” are both umbrella terms that can describe a wide variety of under eye issues. 

If you are self-conscious or struggle with the appearance of the skin under your eyes, you typically are not speaking generally about something that “bothers you a little”. Under eye dark circles can be blindly apparent. 

With the stigma that comes with dark circles, not doing anything about them can really do some damage to your everyday confidence. 

The stigma that has, and sadly will always, walk hand in hand with under eye bags, is exhaustion. 

No matter how much information we are aware of, we will still find ourselves assuming the woman across the room with dark circles didn’t catch enough sleep the evening before. 

Even though we are aware the causes of dark circles have nothing to do with our energy, without the best concealer makeup, we find ourselves being asked if we are sick, tired, or working too hard.

Basically, when it comes to under-eye bags, there is no limit to how much time and money we will spend exploring products, treatments and types of makeup to address the issue. It is exhausting work to not look exhausted. 

Thanks for the irony of Mother Nature… always a jokester. 

What Is An Under Eye Filler Treatment?

An under eye filler treatment is when hyaluronic acid is injected into targeted areas under the skin beneath the eye or tear trough in order to minimize hollows, dark circles, and to correct age related volume loss. 

Is Under Eye Filler Treatment Safe?

The use of dermal fillers for tear troughs have been done “off label” by many practitioners over the years, but recently, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC was FDA approved for the improvement of infraorbital hollows.

With an under eye filler treatment with Juvederm Volbella for under eye bags, you won’t need to hide behind concealer any longer.. 

How Long Does Under Eye Filler Last?

You can expect the results to last for up to one year with Juvederm Volbella for the under eyes.

What Areas Can Be Injected With Under Eye Filler?

Tear troughs – Filler may be used to smooth out the curved line under your eyes that starts at the inside corner of the eye and runs down toward the cheek.

Under eye bags – Filler may be used to erase or soften any other fine lines and wrinkles underneath the eyes. The skin underneath the eye is very thin and prone to wrinkles.

How Much Is Under Eye Filler?

The treatment price can vary depending on how much under eye filler you will need which is established during your consultation, but typically can range between $800 – $1600. 

Where Can I Get Under Eye Filler?

It’s important to find a reputable medical office or medical spa that offers FDA approved dermal fillers like Juvederm Volbella and that have a great reputation.

Always do your research about the practice on Google and read their reviews. And, if you live in Bucks County, PA and looking for a provider that specializes in under eye filler, contact us at (267) 388-0300 or fill out a form online here.

Beginner’s Guide to Lip Filler

A Guide to Lip Filler

So, you are a lip filler newbie! 

We all know that in a perfect world, we would take a Med-Spa vacation with no scheduling conflicts and unlimited down time. 

The reality is, however, is that this is not plausible by any means (if it is, we applaud you, and please share your secret). 

Between holidays, birthdays, work events, weddings, recitals, graduations, and even simple social gatherings (we could go on), it is important to know what you can expect before, during and after finally taking the plunge for the perfect pout. 

Let’s check it out! 

I’ll TAKE ONE LIP FILLER TO GO PLEASE!

Okay – you are excited. We completely understand. 

Excitement, however, is very different than impulsive or impatient. 

When it comes to Dermal Filler Treatments of any kind, it is important to take the time to discuss your options with an experienced and certified dermal filler injector. 

This means, seek out a professional who provides you with proof of certifications, is willing to show you before & after successes, and whose name either starts with “Dr.” or ends with “R.N”. 

Take your time, schedule a consult, and do not be afraid to ask any and all questions that come to mind. 

Luscious lips should not be a spur of the moment decision. 

Stay away from the fast food version of dermal fillers and spring for the steak house. 

Now is not the time to cut corners – We are talking about your face!

LIP INJECTIONS FOR A FILLED CALENDER?

Searching for the perfect pout? A lot of our patients are. 

Therefore, it is no surprise that we are asked quite often about the aftermath of Lip Filler . Appointments for Lip Filler are on average 30 minutes, however if it is your first time, it may be somewhat longer. 

This time would include having before photos taken, speaking with the Doctor or Nurse about your expectations, numbing the area and then having the filler placed.  

The lips have somewhat sensitive skin, so many find it is slightly more painful than the average Botox injection.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER LIP FILLER?

You already know, the skin on your lips is far more delicate and sensitive than the rest of your skin. 

Sensitive skin means swelling will come easily, but after the first 72 hours, you will find you have seen the worst of any unseemly aftermath. 

This also means that you may have bruising, however it will subside after 48 hours. 

Your medical professional will most likely want to wait 2 weeks for a follow up visit, so that the filler can be completely settled and the full effect can be seen. 

WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTION?

The most common misunderstanding regarding lip fillers, is actually thinking that your professional made a mistake and over-puffed your pout. 

You may think that your lips are far too big from what you and the doctor or nurse had discussed. 

Good news? You most likely don’t have anything to worry about! 

Try to remember that although the initial swelling went down, it can take up to a week to see the full effect of the filler making a home in your new smile. 

So don’t give in to the urge to panic the next day assuming something is wrong.  Time heals all swelling!

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LIP FILLER? 

Just like with any type of dermal filler, you should avoid laying down for at a minimum, 4 hours. 

This will help minimize the chance of the filler migrating to unwanted areas of the face, or even just to another section of your lip. 

You should also follow the same rules about not working out for 24 hours after injections. 

Flushed skin will increase your chances of bruising, and sweat on open skin, even on the smallest of points, can lead to infection. 

I’M A FILLER PRO – A LIP INJECTION IS NO DIFFERENT, RIGHT?

Your new lips require a little more extra care than the average Botox injection aftermath you are most likely use to. 

Most obvious, but most commonly forgotten, your lips look temping right after treatment, but sorry! 

Tell those boys to keep the smooches at bay for 24 hours.  

Aside from the fact that you may be submitting your injection sight to unnecessary germs, the amount of muscles used when stealing a kiss, are far more than you realize. 

You may unknowingly shift the shape of your lips that seemed so desirable. 

What else should you look out for? 

It’s best to keep the toasts of the mock-tail variety for now. Alcohol acts as a blood thinner. 

This can increase your likelihood of visible bruising, swelling, and inflammation. 

Not to mention, alcohol can really dehydrate you! One of the benefits of Lip Filler is that your lips will be far more moisturized. 

Hyaluronic acid, a main ingredient in lip filler, is also naturally found in the body. 

Dehydrating yourself means altering the actual compound of the filler. 

Smoking has been shown to increase your risk of infection after getting lip fillers, so it should be avoided. 

Smoking also causes your lips to pucker, which can apply pressure on the lips and be painful after injections. 

Try to avoid smoking for at least 24–48 hours after getting lip fillers.

 

WHAT IS THE TAKEAWAY?

Lip fillers are an amazing way to plump up your smile, fix any asymmetry, or restore youthful moisture to your pout.

Juvederm Voluma is now FDA approved for chin enhancement

Juvederm Voluma is now FDA approved for chin enhancement

When it comes to improving your profile, there’s good reason to keep your chin up!

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC dermal filler is now U.S. FDA approved for chin enhancement.

It is the first and only filler to receive this approval and is offered at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano Medspa in Bucks County, PA.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC was FDA approved in 2013 and was primarily used to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid face.

Since it’s original approval for the mid face, Juvederm Voluma has been used for other areas of the face such as the chin and jawline but those areas were not FDA approved until recently.

Juvederm Voluma For Chin Enhancement:

Today, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is no longer considered an “off label” treatment when it comes to chin contouring and shaping the chin for adults over the age of 21.

The newly approved chin enhancement with Voluma can add volume and help contour the lower face without surgery or downtime.

chin augmentation with Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma for Jawline Contouring & Jowl Improvement:

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is the best non-surgical solution for chin and jawline contouring used to improve the overall look and structure of your face.

By filling in the hollow area around the jowls, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injections soften the appearance of aging skin, strengthens the jawline, and contours the chin.

A jawline or chin filler injectable treatment with Voluma is typically done with a cannula which means less bleeding and bruising, leading to better comfort and a faster recovery.

The injections at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano Medspa are administered by an experienced Physician or Nurse Injector.

The filler injections to the chin and jawline area with Voluma result in a smooth and natural appearance and are known to last for 12 – 24 month.

Voluma for chin enhancement can improve the profile

A chin enhancement with Juvederm Voluma filler adds definition to the lower facial region without the need for getting a chin implant.

It can also reduce the appearance of a double chin and turn back years to the overall look of your face.

In addition, for those with a longer nose, adding volume to the chin can help make the nose appear smaller and improve the balance of the face and profile.

Voluma chin filler

Why is the chin so important when it comes to your overall beauty?

The chin is a critical feature in the construction of a well-balanced face.

It should match the cheeks and rest of the face for a symmetrical appearance.

Whether it’s genetic or part of our aging process, the soft tissue in our jawline breaks down creating what is known as jowls, or sagging skin below your chin.

The loss of collagen in the lower facial region can cause the chin to look hollow and weak often disrupting the framework of our face.

The results are an imbalanced facial structure, a less desirable profile, and the potential for, now you’re not gonna like this one…a double chin.

Sorry folks, no matter how hard you go at the gym there’s no workout to combat gravity.

Thankfully, we have fillers for that!

Voluma For Chin Enhancement Before and After Photos

Frequently Asked Questions on Chin Filler with Juvederm Voluma:

So, what is Juvederm Voluma made of?

It is made of Hyaluronic acid that is a substance that is naturally found in our bodies.

How much is a Chin Filler treatment with Juvederm Voluma?

A typical treatment can range from $800 to $1500 or depending on how much volume needs to be added.

Jawline and Chin Filler Before and After Photo:

How Long Do Lip Injections Last?

In the era of selfie culture, Zoom meetings and social media, it’s easy to believe that having naturally full and plump lips would boost your confidence and decrease your “getting ready” time.

Seeing celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson flaunt their voluminous, youthful pout, we can’t help but wonder how we can achieve that same look. Without having to spend extra time doing makeup or editing photos, getting the selfie-ready lips you’ve fantasized about is more feasible than you’d think!

More often than not, your favorite movie stars and Instagram influencers most likely have lip fillers. Whether they completely changed the size and shape of their lips or just plumped up their pout for more body, this procedure is not uncommon.

Being one of the most common cosmetic procedures around the world, lip fillers can help you achieve your desired look in no time.

The procedure is minimally invasive with immediate results. The most popular types of fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is naturally occurring in the body. HA delivers volume to the treated area, creating the fullness you desire.

All HA fillers, such as Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Kysse, are modified to last longer in the body than the naturally occurring HA does. Here’s what you need to know about each of these FDA approved treatments:

Types Of Lip Fillers & How Long They last:

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable HA substance that delivers more fullness to the lips and plumps up thin lips. Whether you just want fuller lips or your lips have thinned over time, this filler is a tried-and-true option for added volume and a smoother appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive and the filler also contains lidocaine for added comfort of the injection site. Juvederm Ultra can last up to one year with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is another injectable HA filler that is more often used for augmentation of the lips and for smoothing perioral lines, also known as lipstick lines. It is injected directly in and around the lips to plump, augment and smooth the appearance of your lips and mouth area. This filler also contains lidocaine for added comfort of the injection site, and can last up to 12 months.

Restylane® Kysse

Similar to Juvederm fillers, Restylane® Kysse is used for lip augmentation and correction of lipstick lines. It adds fullness and body to the lips while smoothing any wrinkles around the upper lips. This filler also has lidocaine in it to reduce any pain during the treatment, and lasts up to a year.

All three of these FDA approved fillers achieve immediate, optimal and natural-looking results that last up to 12 months.

Whether you have lost volume in your lips over the years or just want a more voluminous pout, lip fillers are a quick, long-lasting way to enhance your appearance and boost your confidence without any surgery, extra makeup or photo editing.

7 Things To Know About Under Eye Filler

Under eye filler treatment

7 Things to Know About Under Eye Filler

Let’s face it: you’re tired of always looking tired.

No matter how much sleep you get at night, it seems like those dark circles will never go away.

You’ve tried countless creams, serums and concealers and none of them ever do what they say they will.

 

As we age, the area under our eyes (also known as the tear trough) loses volume which causes hollows, wrinkles, bags and dark under eye circles.

Dermal fillers for the under eye are used to restore volume, fill in wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of dark circles for more youthful looking eyes. These dermal fillers can also create a smoother facial contour in the areas under the eyes that have a hollow appearance.

 

If you lack volume under the eyes and you’re tired of spending money on eye products that don’t work, then under eye fillers may be the solution for you — but before you book your appointment, here are seven things you should know about the under eye filler treatment:

You’ll see the results right away

You will notice a difference in your under eye area immediately after your treatment. Patients experience instant satisfaction as any problem areas under the eyes will be improved with a natural-looking result.

Under Eye Filler Treatment Is Not Permanent

The results from the under eye filler treatment can last around 1-2 years, but ultimately the absorption varies with each individual. You can always get them touched up in the future as well.

Tear Trough Filler Treatments Are Off-Label

Although the dermal fillers aren’t FDA approved for treatments under the eyes, that doesn’t mean that it’s unsafe.

As other areas of the face have been approved for filler treatments (such as the lips and cheeks), the FDA studies have just not yet been conducted for the under eye area.

Under eye filler treatments are done in practice all over the world.

It is important to choose an experienced, certified medical professional to perform the tear trough filler procedure for optimal results.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Are Preferred

Juvederm and Restylane are common types of hyaluronic acid fillers used for the treatment of under eye hollowness.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are most popularly used because they look the most natural.

Under eye treatments with Juvderm or Restylane can be reversed in the case you don’t like the results or want to adjust the treatment.

Reversal can be done by using Hyaluronidase, an enzyme naturally found in the body, which essentially dissolves the filler.

Pain Is Minimal

The treatment area will be numbed, and the pain will likely be mild to moderate. Most patients would describe the experience as just a small pinch.

There’s Very Little Downtime

There’s a chance that you may experience some slight bruising afterwards, but it’s nothing you can’t cover up with some concealer in the meantime.

You should try to avoid drinking alcohol or taking any blood thinners at least a few days before your treatment, as this may cause some bruising.

There’s also no need to take off work or revolve your schedule around the appointment either, as it is a very quick procedure and you can go about your day afterwards.

The Cost Of Under Eye Filler Treatments

Depending on your facial contours, how much volume has been lost under your eyes and how many syringes of filler you’ll need, the treatment can cost anywhere from $800 to over $2,000.

Schedule a consultation to find out what treatment plan is recommended for you and what that will cost.

 

Recipients of the treatment instantly notice a difference in their under eyes and are pleased with the results. Stop breaking the bank on countless skincare and makeup products that don’t work, and take the leap into a longer-lasting, natural-looking approach to brighter, more youthful eyes.

If you are searching for an under eye filler treatment near me and you live in the Bucks County, PA area, request your free consultation at Healthy Solutions Medspa online or by contacting our office at (267) 388-0300.

Tips To Follow Before And After Your Dermal Filler Treatment

Dermal Fillers: Types of Fillers and Tips To Follow Before Your Treatment:

Whether you want to look years younger or enhance your features, a dermal filler treatment is a great option to achieve your desired look without surgery.

In fact, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that dermal filler treatments were a runner-up for the most popular non-surgical procedures last year, right after Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin).

Most areas of the face can be treated with Dermal fillers.

dermal filler treatment areas

There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market to choose from:

1. Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma, Perlane, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne Boletero Balance.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin that helps it stay hydrated and plump.

These temporary dermal fillers are FDA approved for treatment on the nasolabial folds (smile lines), lips, vertical lip lines, marionette lines and cheek areas.

HA fillers last between 6 months to 2 years before they are absorbed by the body naturally.

2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Radiesse

This filler is FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, cheeks and other facial contours.

CaHA is also a naturally occurring substance found in the body, specifically in our bones.

These fillers typically last longer than HA fillers, about 12 months.

3. Poly-L-lactic Acid

Sculptra

This FDA approved filler consists of a biodegradable synthetic substance.

Sculptra stimulates collagen and helps your skin rebuild it naturally.
Sculptra lasts up to 2 years and is used to fill in laugh lines, plump up thin lips, and treat deep nasolabial folds.

4. Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA)

Bellafill

Bellafil is a semi-permanent FDA approved dermal filler made of a synthetic, biocompatible substance.

This filler lasts up to 5 years and can be used for deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, increase volume in the lips and to fill out pitted acne scars.

Type of dermal fillers

How do you select the right dermal filler? It’s best to schedule a consultation with a reputable Board Certified Doctor or Registered Nurse.

Tips To Follow Before & After Your Dermal Filler Treatment

Before your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

 

● Blood thinners and pain relievers (Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc.)
● Supplements (St. John’s Wort, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E)
● Any type of hair-removal process on the treatment area (waxing, bleaching, tweezing, etc.) at least 3 days before your treatment
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours before your treatment

 

If you suffer from or have a history of cold sores, let your doctor know before your procedure as you should be aware that any needle punctures could contribute to a risk of another breakout or eruption of cold sores, reactivating the herpes virus.

 

If this concerns you, your doctor can prescribe antiviral medication to avoid or clear up any breakouts before your treatment.

 

Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or allergic to any ingredients.

 

You should arrive at the office with a clean, makeup-free face.

dermal fillers

Following Your Dermal Filler Procedure

After your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

● Wearing makeup for at least 12 hours
● Using skincare products for at least 24 hours
● Strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours
● Extensive sun, heat or UV exposure for at least 24 hours
● Extremely cold or hot temperatures for at least 48 hours
● Touching or massaging the treated area
● Smoking and/or smoke exposure
● Any dental procedures for at least 2 weeks

 

To minimize swelling and bruising, apply ice on the treated area and take Arnica or Bromelain (eating fresh pineapple may help as well).

 

Tell your doctor if you are planning any laser treatments, chemical peels, or other procedures after treatment, or if you are using Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or other blood thinners as this may increase bleeding or bruising on the treated area.

 

If you have a big event coming up, it is recommended that you plan your treatment at least 3 weeks in advance for optimal healing and results.

The fillers also have a small amount of lidocaine to help make the injection more comfortable.

How long do lip injections last?

Lip fillers aren’t permanent and dissolve naturally over time.
Depending on which filler you choose, the results of the injections can last from six months to over a year.
Your injector will help you decide which product is best for the results you’re looking for.

When It Comes To Natural Beauty, Millennials Want Their Fill

Lip filler bucks county pa

Perusing through their Instagram account, Millennials will notice everyone from celebrities to their favorite influencers look picture perfect: a flawless complexion, plump cheeks, and supple lips – without a wrinkle in sight.

Much how Millennials rely on filters to look their best in daily selfies, Dermal fillers, Botox, lip filler & injectables can help them achieve the same thing in real life.

In their search for perfection, Millennials look to dermal filler treatments to enhance their appearance with non-invasive, non-permanent procedures.

When it comes to beauty augmentations, Millennials between the ages of 22 to 37 years-old want their fill. But, they still want to look natural and not like someone else, or worse, fake!

Thanks to the advanced technology, today’s cosmetic surgery trends have shifted from invasive procedures that significantly change the structure of your face to non-surgical natural-looking enhancements that are now considered self-care for Millenials.

The 2018 American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Annual Survey Revealed that “there is more emphasis on early care or pre-juvenation in the ’20s and ’30s…and in 2018, 72 percent of facial plastic surgeons saw an increase in injectables in patients under age 30.”

Dermal fillers, Botox and lip fillers create a younger, smoother and healthier appearance by adding volume to certain areas of the face: lips and cheeks being most common.

Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by smoothing out lines around the nose and mouth. They augment and restore volume to create a more plump, youthful looking you.

Which Injectable or Lip Filler Do Millenials Prefer?

With so many Dermal filler and lip filler products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you. Let’s go through the FDA approved products offered at Healthy Solutions Med Spa. But, before we do, it’s important to mention that anyone who is considering getting fillers or Botox  done should always get a consultation with a Board Certified Physician or Nurse Injector who can provide the right clinical recommendation.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA:

The sag is a drag! Unfortunately, as you age your cheeks lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area and correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. This product is popular with Millenials who are looking to add contour to their cheeks and a subtle lift to enhance their profile.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Laughing has been known to add years to your life. It can also add a few extra lines to your face, along with aging. Millennials often opt for this dermal filler at the earliest development of lines around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Smooths moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles for up to 18 months with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA & JUVÉDERM ULTRA:

Kylie Jenner launched an entire cosmetic empire based on her lips. While appearing on the cover of Forbes magazine might not be in your immediate future, a little more volume to your pout is.

If for the most part you are satisfied with your natural volume but want more lush to those lips, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA can help you achieve a subtle volume increase with just one lip filler injection.

JUVEDERM ULTRA is a better lip filler choice for someone with thinner lips and who would like a more significant increase in volume.

BOTOX

The magic eraser! It removes wrinkles from the forehead and around the eyes. Enough said.

How Millennials Choose Their Lip Filler, Botox, or Cheek Enhancement Provider?

When Millennials decide they want to enhance their appearance with Botox and fillers, they know it’s important to go to a provider that offers reputable products and provides great looking results, and they do their research!

  • Only go to a board-certified physician or registered nurse; both available to perform Dermal filler, JUVEDERM and lip augmentation treatments at Healthy Solutions Med Spa.
  • Read the reviews of the practice – on their Website, Facebook, Yelp and Google page.
  • Check out before and after photos on their site or Instagram profile.
  • Check out Botox.com or Juvederm.com for a list of providers who offer reputable products that are deemed gold standard in the industry.
  • Beware of providers that state they offer reputable products but are NOT listed on the find a provider list, as they may be selling them “Fau-tox” not BOTOX and JUVEDERM.
  • Avoid Groupons! Spend money on a quality provider that will get you the best results with the best products. These providers could be using expired or highly diluted products. Don’t skimp on products for your face.

Do Millennials Find Dermal Fillers Painful?

No one is ever thrilled about having a needle injected into their face, but much like my hair on a humid day, it looks a lot scarier than it is. Before receiving filler injections, the medical provider or nurse will numb the area making any discomfort more tolerable. And when all else fails, stay focused on the end game – you’re gonna look, G-O-R-GEOUS girl!

Dermal fillers and lip fillers are ideal beauty enhancements.

How Much Are Dermal Fillers or Lip Fillers?

They are relatively inexpensive at a starting price of $400, depending on the filler you choose and the amount of syringes.

They typically last anywhere from 9 to 12 months and can be reversed if you are not satisfied with the outcome by injecting Hyloranadase.

But reverse treatments are rare, as most patients are incredibly pleased with their enhanced appearance – so you can rid yourself of the fear of looking like you were attacked by a beehive, as each injection is subtle. You will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance, but it takes multiple syringes to achieve an enormous pout or chipmunk cheeks.

If you are looking to enhance your appearance with Botox or Lip fillers and you live in or near Bucks County, PA near Doylestown, Newtown, or Warrington then give us a call (267) 388-0300 to get started on your path to a more beautiful and youthful looking you.
