Dermal FillersTucson, AZ

Dermal fillers can make a person appear more youthful, and they cost a lot less than a traditional facelift. Fillers can be used to address a variety of cosmetic issues like wrinkles, lines and hollows. The results can last for over a year. A filler can be used to relax the muscles underneath a wrinkle or fill up a crease/line in the patient’s skin. When it is injected into the area that needs work, it makes the issue less noticeable and leaves the person looking younger. Dermal fillers are also used to plump and volumize the jawline, chin, lips, temples and cheeks. Fillers can be used to improve the appearance of saggy hands.

Common types of dermal fillers

The most common type of fillers used to address cosmetic issues and the signs of aging include:

  • Hyaluronic acid: This chemical is naturally present in the connective tissues of a person’s skin and can be used to fill up wrinkles and fine lines. This filler type can also be used to augment a person’s lips and give them more volume.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite: This type of filler is often used to restore volume in a person’s cheeks, eliminate skin folds and address deep wrinkles. It can also be used to contour the jawline. Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers tend to last longer than those that contain hyaluronic acids: up to three years.
  • Fat injections: A dermatologist might also decide to remove fat from one part of a patient’s body and use it to fill up another part. The fat is typically extracted with liposuction and injected into the area that needs more volume. The effects of this type of filler can be permanent, but it usually requires multiple injections and overfilling the area to make up for the body reabsorbing fat.
  • Permanent soft tissue fillers: These are often used for deep wrinkles around the mouth. The patient’s body will not be able to absorb this type of filler, so patients can get permanent results. This filler type is generally not recommended for those who are getting fillers for the first time.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid fillers: This type of filler is great for people with HIV who have localized fat tissue loss as a symptom. These fillers are used to make up for the lost tissue, and the effects can last a couple of years.

  • What to expect when getting dermal fillers

    Getting dermal fillers is a straightforward process. The doctor will typically numb the site of the injection with a numbing agent, then the filler is injected into the problematic area. The entire process usually takes less than an hour unless fat fillers are being used. The patient might experience some soreness for a couple of days, but that quickly goes away. The area that was worked on will feel like it normally does in a few days. With fillers, the patient gets instant results.

I can’t say enough great things about this treatment! I have had several minimally invasive cosmetic treatments including IPL and Ematrix and this blows them away. I’ve never even posted a review or photos but am so impressed with this Medspa and this treatment. It literally erased wrinkles under my eyes and on forehead! Highly recommended! I will return for more! Melissa and Nicole are awesome!

Oh my goodness! This place is AMAZING! Melissa is gentle, fun, informative, caring, fair and she does amazing work for really good prices. I bought a Groupon for 2 micro- needle sessions. It was fantastic. While I was there, her prices were so great that I had her do a threading procedure on the outline of my lips that just defines the peaks and adds collagen (it turned out beautiful, natural and subtle), a package of laser hair removal for my hubby and and planning on starting…

I was very impressed with this little med spa. Melissa and Nichole are wonderful. I bought a Groupon for two microneedling sessions which led me to discover this gem. The Groupon is a terrific deal, and the treatment was comfortable and well explained. I am sure I will try other services offered here in the future.

This Med Spa is in the back of an industrial Park right on the corner of the building as you enter the parking Lot. I went here to have Laser Hair removal done by the Laser Tech Nicole. the procedure was explained, the entire process was less than 20 minutes and prices were the most reasonable within 15 miles from my research, a glass of refreshing water and a special aroma made this experience top shelf. I will be visiting here again!
