Natural Beauty, Enhanced

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a versatile type of injectable treatment that can restore volume to aging areas of the face. Fillers are also a very popular option for enhancing facial features to improve overall balance and aesthetics. Dermal fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a type of gel that can attract moisture from the body and increase volume under the skin. By injecting this gel into the skin, wrinkles, and folds can be smoothed out, and features like the lips or cheeks can be harmonized. At VitaLab Wellness, we offer the following Restylane products:

  • Restylane® Kyss — a filler for enhancing lips and softening fine lines around the mouth
  • Restylane® Lyft — a filler designed to add fullness and lift to the cheeks
  • Restylane® Defyne — a filler for softening laugh lines and nasolabial folds
  • Restylane® Contour — a filler used to contour the cheeks and chin

The Treatment

Your Dermal Filler Procedure

Once you’ve selected the right dermal filler for your needs, your injection site will be cleansed, and the product will be placed in the skin with a very fine needle. 

Most patients are able to tolerate any discomfort during this process, but we can supply a topical numbing cream if you’re concerned about pain. You’ll see instant results, and treatment takes about 15 minutes. Afterward, you can return to your regular daily activities.

Transform Your Look

Dermal Filler Recovery and Aftercare

For best results with your dermal fillers La Jolla patients are recommended to follow some basic aftercare steps. Firstly, avoid strenuous activity and exercise for the first 24 hours. Secondly, avoid rubbing or massaging the area. Finally, avoid blood-thinning medications like NSAIDs or aspirin since these can increase bruising. It’s normal to have some minor redness and swelling at your injection sites, as well as some tenderness if you received lip fillers. You may gently apply a cold pack to ease any swelling – only apply it for 15 minutes at a time. We also recommend using Arnica Montana 30c pellets or cream immediately after treatment to minimize bruising.

A Holistic Approach to Beauty

Dermal Filler Results

Dermal filler injections can address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines: Fillers can smooth out lines around the mouth, eyes, and forehead, creating a smoother and younger appearance.
  • Loss of volume: Fillers can restore fullness to cheeks, temples, and lips, enhancing facial contours and definition.
  • Asymmetry: Fillers can subtly balance uneven features like lips or jawlines for a more symmetrical appearance.

Although you will see instant results with your dermal fillers, it’s best to allow two weeks for your results to fully settle in. Each filler lasts for a different amount of time, but generally will produce results for 6-12 months. Our licensed clinician will give you the best estimate of when you can return for a touch-up appointment to maintain your results.
