What You Need to Know About Fillers

When it comes to cosmetic enhancement, it is easy to get overwhelmed or confused. Thanks to the advancements of medicine and patient options, there are now more choices for patients to enjoy. However, all those choices can sometimes make patients more anxious than empowered. In an effort to educate GOLDCOAST medspa clients, and curious browsers everywhere, we have compiled some general information on one of our most popular treatments – fillers.

What Are Fillers?

You may have heard the term “fillers” while researching cosmetic solutions. In general, fillers are substances that are put into the skin to plump areas that have thinned out due to the aging process. Most fillers are injected and do not require surgery or extensive recovery time.

What Are Types of Fillers?
You may have heard of certain fillers, like Juvederm. At GOLDCOAST medspa, we use Juvederm as our filler of choice for most patients. Botox is also offered here in our comfortable setting, but Botox is not a filler. Instead, Botox combats wrinkles by freezing certain muscles.

What Can Fillers Do?
Fillers, like Juvederm, are used to add volume to areas that have dropped due to aging. With proper use, fillers like Juvederm can increase the volume of lips or decrease the visibility of wrinkles or other age-related skin conditions.

What Will My Filler Appointment Be Like?
Most of our first-time clients wonder what their filler appointment will be like. Fortunately, you will be working with our team of kind professionals that will quickly put you at ease. Your appointment will not be long, and you will be able to see results almost immediately. While some of our clients are worried about injections, you can breathe a sigh of relief as we numb you before the injection to reduce anxiety and pain. Your recovery time is quick and you will feel great after your appointment, with soreness passing quickly.

Using fillers works best when you commit to regular visits, but our centrally located office makes it easy to squeeze in your maintenance appointments during your lunch break.

Are you ready to learn more about fillers and how treatments can improve your appearance and self-esteem? We would love to hear more about your goals for treatment. Give us a call to tell us more about your situation and get your questions answered. We are here to help you look and feel your best!
