DERMAL FILLERS IN GRAND FORKS

Dermal fillers restore volume and are used to correct wrinkles and soft tissue loss due to aging. They are injected into the superficial layers of the skin and are most commonly used in the smile lines, lips and corners of the mouth. Advanced techniques also involve the use of certain fillers around the eyes and cheekbones to restore a more youthful look.

BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLER

Dermal fillers work by using hyaluronic acid to volumize fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This smoothes the skin and texture of the face, providing a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate and can last up to a year. Patients can also visit Premier Aesthetics for touch-up injections to maintain the results and slow the overall effect of aging. 

Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with other injectables, including neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) and collagen stimulators (Sculptra and Radiesse). Combining injectables can provide a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the skin and offer patients a wonderful alternative to surgical treatments. 

Dermal fillers are affordable, easy, and long lasting. Patients who have considered the advantages of dermal fillers and other injectables can visit the team at Premier Aesthetics in Grand Forks, North Dakota to determine their candidacy for treatment. 

There are few risks associated with dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. Patients with rashes, infections, or hives should avoid injections until these concerns have healed, and patients should be in good overall health. Those who have severe allergic reactions to lidocaine or bacterial proteins should discuss this with the provider, as they may not be candidates for this treatment. Most patients will experience redness and tenderness of the injection area immediately after their treatment, but this will subside over a day or two. 

  • Is Dysport the same thing as BOTOX® Cosmetic?
    Dysport and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. The main difference between Botox and Dysport is that Dysport may diffuse more than Botox, meaning that it will spread easier from the injection site to other areas. Dysport also takes less time to show results, with onset happening about 2-5 days as compared to 5-7 days for Botox.
  • How does Botox and Dysport work?
    Botox and Dysport work by simply relaxing the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
  • How long does it take for Botox and Dysport to work?
    Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe wrinkles within 2-5 days with Dysport. Botox takes longer to kick in and is typically seen within 5-10 of treatment.
  • How long does Dysport last?
    One treatment of Dysport can last for up to 4 months.*
  • How long does Botox last?
    Most patients will see their Botox last about 3-4 months. Very few patients experience resaults that last less than 2 months and some patients see results lasting much longer. Results can vary between patients.
  • What should I do before getting Botox or Dysport?
    To help avoid bruising, patients are recommended to discontinue use of blood thinning medication. Patients must consult their primary care physician prior to discontinuing use of any medication.
  • Is Botox a poison?
    No, it is not poisonious and it is not toxic. The product is a natural, purified protein. It is an approved drug that is used in very tiny doses. It comes from a naturally occuring bacterium - similar to how Penicillin comes from mold.
  • How long does a Botox appointment take?
    Generally, after the consultation, the procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime when receiving Botox or Dysport you can do it on your lunchbreak and no one would know you had it done!
  • Does Botox and Dysport make you look frozen?
    No. The providers at Premier will ensure you get the look you want, as natural as you want. Most people simply want to look natural, rested, and refreshed without looking "over-done." The goal is to make you look great and well-rested!
  • What areas can Botox and Dysport be injected?
    Botox Cosmetic and Dysport can be administered in forehead wrinkles, crow's feet around the eyes, and the "11 lines" between the eyebrows. Other areas include the "bunny lines" one the sides of the nose, corners of the mouth, and more.
  • What is a unit of Botox or Dysport?
    A unit of Botox or Dysport is how the product is measured. One unit is a very small amount.
  • Does getting Botox hurt?
    Most patients say the injections feel similar to a little pinch, although everyone has different tolerance. The treatment is very quick.

PREMIER DERMAL FILLER BRANDS

The extensive range of injectable filler options available on the market may seem overwhelming. But ultimately, the wide array of options is great news for patients hoping to attain a more youthful appearance. Premier's experienced nurse injectors can make use of the differences in the density, texture, and intended depths to create subtle and natural looking results for patients. 

Revanesse Versa & Lips

Revanesse Versa is a multi-purpose dermal filler that combines rigorously tested materials with state-of-the-art skin technology to provide optimal results. Since it was created in 2012, over 3 million syringes have been used to treat people’s skin worldwide. The manufacturer of Revanesse Versa processes the material in small batches to ensure both quality and safety.

What sets Revanesse Versa apart is its versatility due to the use of Thixofix cross-linking technology in its creation. This unique technology makes the hyaluronic acid molecules stay closer together, more consistent in size, and more round. All of this results in a filler that is easier to inject and shape, in addition to providing a more natural appearance and feel. It also takes longer to break down than other types of hyaluronic acid-based fillers, making it a great choice for patients who want long-lasting results.
