Fillers are colorless gels that fill in areas of our face where we have lost volume due to the loss of collagen that occurs with the natural aging process. The most common areas where we lose collagen and volume in our faces are the nasolabial folds (area between our nostrils and our cheeks) and the “marionette” lines that develop from the outer corners of our mouth down to our jaw lines and also in the cheekbone areas that make us appear “tired” as well as restoring the natural youthful plumpness of our lips.
Here at Whole Health JC, Inc. Dr. Jen uses a filler called Juvaderm®XC which is hyaluronic acid gel. This Juvaderm®XC is a naturally-occurring carbohydrate called hyaluronic acid which is naturally made in our skin. She combines Juvaderm®XC with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma—YOUR OWN PRP) in a combo procedure called the Vampire Facelift®. This is a nonsurgical, drug-free procedure immediately gives you a natural and younger “lift”. There is no downtime, no surgery, no medications, results are immediate with maximum results occurring in 3 months and these results last up to a year and a half.
During this short 45 minute procedure performed in our office, Dr. Jen will first apply a safe compounded painless numbing cream to your face while preparing your PRP in front of you and then injects Juvaderm®XC (which contains lidocaine which provides comfort during the injection) in the areas of volume loss that have occurred on your face. Following the Juvaderm®XC, your own PRP is then injected in these same areas which polishes the already beautiful look. There is no downtime and you can return back to work or get ready for your date.
The results are so immediate, that when you leave the office, your friends and coworkers will think you have just had a great nap! Shhh.. it can stay our secret!!
For 24 hours after getting filler injections, avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol intake, and exposure to extensive heat/sun.
