Fillers restore fullness in your skin by using a gel-like substance to add volume. The team at Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa injects your fillers in specific areas after marking the injection points and cleansing your skin.
Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa uses Juvéderm®. While there are several fillers under the Juvéderm label, they share a main ingredient: hyaluronic acid (HA). HA occurs naturally in your skin, eyes, and joints as a lubricant. It’s a smooth gel that mimics the texture of the soft layer of fat just under your skin.
Eventually, the hyaluronic acid naturally dissolves into your tissues and your body later excretes it as waste. Most HA fillers last for 6-12 months depending on where you place them, but you can repeat the injections to enjoy your results continuously.
The team at Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa uses dermal fillers for two purposes:
Juvéderm fillers can boost volume in your lips to correct asymmetry, reshape them, or add plumpness.
Your skin naturally loses volume as you age, which is a significant cause of large wrinkles like smile lines or marionette lines. You can use HA fillers to restore volume for plumper cheeks and fewer large wrinkles.
The team at Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa customizes your treatment based on your specifications and goals. They ensure your results look natural and that you avoid an “overfilled” appearance. If you have smaller fine lines you want to treat, the team at Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa might recommend Botox® too.
Recovery time is minimal after HA dermal fillers. In fact, you likely won’t even need to miss any work. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours to minimize bruising and swelling.
For any post-injection discomfort or swelling, apply ice to your skin. Report any signs of a complication, like bleeding or a fever, to the team at Magic Valley Medical Care Clinic and MedSpa immediately if you experience them.
