As we age the volume of youthful skin diminishes and wrinkles and folds begin to appear. The “smile lines” around the eyes, “parentheses” around the mouth, and “bags” under the eyes can be smoothed and rejuvenated instantly with a few quick injections. Nurse Jenell provides the latest injectables and techniques that will sculpt a more youthful appearance in a single office visit. With no down time these fillers provide beauty instant gratification.
Juvederm® is an injectable gel with a hyaluronic acid (HA) base – a substance your body creates naturally. A “next generation” filler, with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid it works wonders to plump up hollows and erase unwanted wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvederm is also the preferred filler to rejuvenate and subtly enhance lips.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC
Introducing Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC – the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA–approved for age-related volume loss in the mid-face (cheek area). Clinical trial results show patients looking up to 5 years younger in one visit with results lasting up to 2 years. While Juvéderm® smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth, JuvédermVoluma™ XC can add volume to the cheek area to take years off your appearance.
Radiesse is dermal filler used to plump the skin. It is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water based gel carrier. RADIESSE works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by naturally stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last 18 months or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
Belotero Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. Belotero is used to smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. It is also used for under eye volume loss and fine lines around the lips.
Consult your practitioner to decide which filler will best suit your needs.

Tips Before & After Your Treatment
Prevent possible bruising or swelling by avoiding the use of anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, etc.), aspirin, Vitamin E, or GinkoBiloba one week prior to treatment.
The ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising.
If you tend to bruise easily, Nurse Jenell recommends you take the homeopathic remedy arnica, which is available at most natural food and drug stores. It is available in oral form prior to your treatment and may be applied topically after.
Post Treatment Care Instructions
Immediately post treatment, you may experience temporary swelling, tenderness, itching, pain, bruising, redness or small lumps at the injection site. Although these effects typically improve within 2-3 days, it may take up to 2 weeks to fullly resolve.
For 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure and alcoholic beverages.
Avoid pressure on the treated area for 6 hours after treatment. It is common to see some slight swelling/bruising for 48 hours which gradually disappears. You may cover the area with make-up if you like.
If you have recently suffered from facial cold sores, advise your practitioner.
