Dermal fillers are used to provide shape and contour in the face. They can be used to restore volume and fullness to regions of the face that are beginning to age, or to accentuate your best features and bring balance and ideal proportions to the face.
Fillers are a great choice for adding fullness back to areas that are empty and hollow, smoothing out wrinkles and creases, improving contours and lift, or rejuvenating plumpness in the lips. Your skin’s structural components begin to deteriorate with time and sun damage, resulting in sagging, loss of suppleness, and premature aging. The goal with any of our filler treatments at Kora Aesthetics is to create a perfectly natural, yet transformative result. When fillers are placed properly, they should create desirable contours and a youthful appearance while remaining completely undetectable.
Our expert aesthetic team at Kora Aesthetics is proud to offer Restylane, Juvéderm, and Versa dermal fillers to help restore volume, create balance, and youthful contours. These fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which is naturally broken down in the skin over time. Fillers generally last anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years and are all reversible if an adjustment is needed. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, begin working right away and don’t require the recovery time you would get after surgery.
Some of the benefits of Dermal Fillers include:
Areas most commonly treated with Dermal Fillers:
These are the two vertical lines between your eyebrows. Botox/Dysport relaxes facial muscles that produce fine lines and wrinkles and prevent new creases.
A “gummy smile” displays more of your gumline than you’d like. The excessive gingival display is another name for it. For a more balanced grin or gummy smile, a modest injection of Botox can relax the lip.
The masseter is one of the muscles that help you chew. It’s located on the side of your face and connects your cheekbone to your lower jawbone. When Botox is administered to the masseter, it is referred to as a masseter Botox. It’s also known as jaw Botox. The masseter is injected with botulinum toxin, which prevents nerve impulses from reaching the muscle. This will prevent the muscle from contracting.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, tightens wrinkles and frown lines while elevating the brows. A brow lift using Botox/Dysport involves giving an injection between the brows to relax the muscles beneath. The upper forehead muscles “pull” the eyebrows back into place, allowing the skin to smooth out.
Botox and Dysport are prescription injections that are used to block muscular activity that causes signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. They do not prevent you from expressing your feelings, but they temporarily prevent the lines caused by muscular movement from forming.
The treatment areas are injected with Botox/Dysport using fine needles by one of our skillfully trained injectors.
Botox and Dysport are both effective treatments for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creases and are safe. The treatments are quick and painless, and you will be able to resume your regular activities after treatment. You may notice a significant, long-term difference for up to six months!
Following treatment, redness and mild swelling are likely. It will go away on its own, but for 3-5 days after your appointment, avoid any rigorous activity.
Botox/Dysport injections provide a temporary effect, with effects ranging from three to six months.
Only a single treatment session is required to get the best effects. However, repeating treatments three to six months apart can help keep the benefits long-lasting.
