Wrinkle Relaxers

JEM Medspa uses both Botox and Dysprt to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX®/Dysport® is injected in small quantities to help dim the muscle contractions that create unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Our skilled Nurse Injectors are highly trained to give you a natural and refreshed look. Results begin to set in within 5-7 days, with maximal effect achieved in two weeks. Botox/Dysport results typically last between 3-4 months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, we lose subcutaneous fat in our faces and our bone structure changes beneath our skin often causing a sunken appearance.

Our facial skin also stretches a bit, losing elasticity that contributes to the appearance of unwelcome folds and sagging. Other factors that affect the aging process and the condition of the skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.

What Can Dermal Fillers Do For You??

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Add volume and lift to the cheeks and jawline
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars
  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
  • Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids

Does It Hurt?

Most dermal fillers are pre-mixed with lidocaine (a numbing agent). We also apply numbing cream, and in some cases perform a dental block for our injectable procedures. During the treatment, you can expect a feeling of pressure, typically not pain, as the gel is injected. If at any time during the treatment you feel you need a break or feel lightheaded tell your provider. For the most part, patients are very comfortable while receiving filler treatments.

How Long Will My Appointment Be?

45-60 minutes

Common Risks, Side Effects or Concerns?

You may experience mild and transient side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, itching, lumps/bumps, tenderness or soreness for a few days after treatment. The discomfort is easily managed with over the counter pain medication or other non- pharmacological pain management remedies.

Your clinician will review your full medical history with you to determine any potential contraindications to the recommended treatment. You are not a candidate if you have any of the following:

  • Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis
  • History or presence of multiple severe allergies
  • History of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins

Tell your doctor if you have a history of cold sores (oral herpes virus) as you may require treatment to prevent a breakout.

Side effects are rare, and most are mild or moderate in nature, with a short duration of 7 days or less.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Results are seen immediately following treatment, but final effects will be seen at approximately 1 -2 weeks

Safety:

Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers have been marketed in 72 countries and have proven to be very safe and efficacious with predictable results.

How Many Syringes Will I Need?

The amount of product needed depends on the patient’s anatomy, age, genetics and desired goals. For someone in their mid 30’s with very minimal sagging, 1-2 syringes usually produces amazing results. In older patients with significant loss of volume and sagging, 3 syringes or more might be necessary. A consultation is required with your treatment provider to determine what is best for you.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are used on patients in good health between the ages of 18 and 75 years of age and have minimal to moderate signs of aging in the face, lips, hands, neck and chest due to loss of volume.

How do I prepare for my Dermal Filler appointment?

Prior to your treatment appointment you will need to remove all makeup or the provider can do it for you. The skin is then prepped with an antiseptic topically to prevent the introduction of bacteria during the injections.a before picture will be taken and filed in your medical record.
