What to Expect From Your Lip Filler Appointment?

January 29, 2024

Lip fillers are not a ‘one size fits all’ treatment; whether patients are looking to refine lip contours, address asymmetry or proportion, restore volume, provide hydration, or just add that extra ‘oomph,’ our array of dermal fillers caters to every need.

So what are dermal fillers…

Let’s start first by understanding what these fillers consist of! Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance already found within our bodies. It plays a vital role as it is a primary component of what gives our skin structure, and is responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump! Common hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, like Restylane, Juvederm, and RHA products, are often also infused with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Once injected, patients can expect their results to last for about 6-12 months, depending on the specific product used and the body’s natural metabolic processes.

What to do before and after a lip filler treatment:

Pre Care 

  • Avoid taking any blood thinning medications or supplements, this includes over the counter medication such as aspirin and ibuprofen for at least 7-10 days.

  • Avoid drinking alcohol at least 24 hours before your appointment.

  • Take arnica supplements a few days before your appointment to help minimize your chances of bruising and swelling.

  • Eat a small meal or snack before your appointment.

Post Care

  • Avoid strenuous exercise or extreme heat for at least 24 hours

  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol for at least 24-48 hours following treatment

  • Apply ice or a cold compress in 15-minute intervals for the first 12 hours. Always place a thin cloth or towel over the ice to prevent direct contact.

  • Stay hydrated, drink lots of water!

Patients can also expect swelling and bruising following their treatment, this is completely normal and should subside within 1-2 weeks. Final results are also not seen immediately as it takes 2 weeks for dermal fillers to fully settle.

Cost: Pricing varies based on the type of dermal filler used, and can range from $675-$875/per syringe. Our medical providers will conduct a personalized assessment to determine the most suitable product based on their patient’s individualized goals and needs.

This month enjoy 15% off (1) syringe of any 1ml Juvederm or Restylane collection of dermal fillers. Use code LipLove15 when booking.

  • Pomegranate Extract removes surface build up, reduces the appearance of blemishes, and protects against environmental aggressors like pollution.
  • Ground Bamboo and Rice powder extracts gently exfoliate dull, dry skin.
  • Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, helps brighten and even out skin tone.
  • Plant-derived probiotics help smooth out the skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of blemishes and redness.

How Do I Use This Product?

The Vitamin C Probiotic Polish is gentle enough for most skin types with the exception of super-sensitive skin. Those with sensitive skin should mix this product with OSEA Ocean Cleansing Milk for a more gentle formulation.

How to use: First, dispense 3/4 tablespoon of powder into your hand and add in a couple drops of water. Rub the powder-and-water mixture into your hands until the consistency changes from a powder to a creamy paste. Once it’s in paste form, apply it to your face in a circular motion. Make sure to avoid contact with your eyes.  Next, massage the paste into your skin for a minute; then rinse with warm water. For best results, use it at night, two to three times a week.

Get Rid of Neck Wrinkles With CosMedix Illuminate & Lift

July 19, 2017

While the skin on your face is delicate, there’s one part of your body that’s even more so: your neck and décollete. The skin on this area of your body is thinner and contains less natural oils than the skin on your face. Combined with sun damage, the skin on those areas can wrinkle and develop age spots faster than any other part of your body. That’s where the new CosMedix Illuminate & Lift Treatmen($70) comes in.

This neck and décollete treatment contains super ingredient, Edelweiss stem cell extract, which helps to brighten skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and firms loose, sagging skin. In an independent study of Edelweiss stem cell extract, people saw up to a 56 percent decrease in sagging skin on their neck in only three weeks and a 10 percent decrease in wrinkle depth in just six weeks.

 

 

          The Best Way To Apply CosMedix Illuminate & Lift

After cleansing your face and neck, apply a small amount onto your hand. Place that amount on your décollete using upward strokes and gently massage the cream into your skin up to your jawline. For best results, use twice a day.

 

CosMedix Illuminate & Lift Treatment is available at our 2nd Street District, Hill Country Galleria, South Lamar, and River Oaks locations.
