Facial filler can be used in several different areas of your face including your cheeks, jawline and more! Dr. Lauren can help define your cheekbones, jawline and more! This fast and easy injection treatment has little to no downtime and lasts for up to two years. Dr. Lauren will help you decide how many syringes is right for you.
How much does it cost?
Signature Facial Filler is $650 for 1 syringe. For a more dramatic result or correction, we recommend doubling or even tripling up. A good rule of thumb- if you’re in your 20’s is 1 syringe. People in their 30’s and 40’s will likely need 2-3, and people over 50 will most likely need 3. Dr. Lauren will work with you to figure out the right amount for your desired outcome.
How long does it last?
The facial filler will naturally be broken down and metabolized by your body, and the length it lasts depends on just how quickly your body metabolizes the product. On average, facial filler usually lasts 12-18 months.
Does it hurt?
Worried about pain? We use a prescription-strength numbing cream that we will apply 15-20 minutes before you are injected, which will get you nice and numb before your treatment. However, most patients opt to skip the numbing cream simply because the cheek area is not as vascular as other areas of the face and most experience little to no discomfort.
How long will it take?
It takes about 15-30 minutes, with about 15-20 minutes of numbing before you are treated. We understand your time is valuable so we are quick and efficient!
Is there any prep for this treatment?
To minimize your chances of bruising, we recommend avoiding ibuprofen and blood-thinning medications for 3 days before your injections.
Is there any downtime/recovery?
Everyone is different- we have some patients who walk out of their injections appointments totally ready to go… and others who tend to bruise and swell. It really depends on your own individual physiology and body chemistry! Most people swell a bit… generally, the morning after your injections is when you are going to be the most swollen. DON’T PANIC. This is normal and is actually supposed to happen! Typically, you will be a little swollen for a few days, up to a week after your injections. It will be something that you will notice, but most other people won’t. A week after your injections you will really be able to see what your new contours really look like. Stay hydrated and avoid Ibuprofen before your appointment.
