Your Guide to Injectables and Fillers

Injectables and fillers are a great way to regain youthful skin and leave you feeling confident and ageless. However, it is a cosmetic procedure, and it’s important that you understand the entire process, from the initial consultation to the procedure. The professionals at Faces Med Spa understand that every face is unique, and we’re here to tailor to your specific needs and create a completely  personalized treatment. 


The first step in the filler process is a consultation appointment. Scheduling a consultation before choosing fillers will be beneficial in identifying the best treatment option for you. The professionals at Faces Med Spa will discuss your areas of concern, including desired areas to add volume, goals of the procedure, and which type of fillers are best for you. We will also discuss your medical history to ensure that you are the right candidate for fillers. Our specialists will then conduct a facial analysis, which will consist of examining your skin condition and complexion. 

There are options when it comes to fillers, and a consultation will allow for our specialists to determine the perfect combination for you. Here is a brief synopsis of the two most popular treatments and their effects: 

  • Juvéderm
    Many patients seeking Juvéderm treatment are looking to improve signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of shape/structure in the face. Juvéderm fillers add volume to a particular area of the face, such as the cheeks, parentheses lines, and lips.
  • Restylane
    Restylane fillers help aid in repairing moderate to severe face creases and folds. Restylane can also be used as lip fillers in individuals over the age of 21. Restylane fillers are primarily used to add volume and fullness to the face.During the treatment process, our specialists will inject the fillers, which can typically take 15 to 60 minutes, depending on which area is being treated. Lidocaine is also a component of Juvéderm and Restylane fillers, which helps to reduce pain during treatment. If you are worried about discomfort during your treatment, topical numbing cream or ice is available upon request to help minimize discomfort. 


Before deciding on injectables, you should schedule a consultation to determine the best treatment choice for you. Faces Med Spa’s experts will talk to you about your concerns and areas you are interested in treating. Injectables can help to reduce wrinkles and frown lines, aid with migraine prevention, and treat symptoms of issues such as Cervical Dystonia. 

It is critical that you discuss your medical history with your doctor prior to Dysport and Botox injectables because of potential risks associated with certain medical conditions.

Our experts will also do a face analysis, which will include a thorough examination of your skin’s condition and appearance. Below is a synopsis of our two injectable treatment options:

  • Botox
    Botox mainly targets frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.Botox injections stop nerve impulses from reaching the small face muscles that cause expression lines. The injections allow your muscles to relax, preventing nerve contractions.
  • Dysport
    Dysport is used to treat abnormal head posture and neck discomfort caused by cervical dystonia (CD). It is also used to temporarily relieve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people younger than 65. When Dysport is injected into CD patients’ muscles, it weakens them. When Dysport is injected into the muscles that govern face expression, it prevents them from tightening.Our experts will inject botox or dysport during the procedure, which can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on the region being treated. Botox results will typically become noticeable in 24 to 48 hours, whereas Dysport will take 2 to 4 days.
