Collection of Fillers
When it comes to facial aesthetics, we all have different concerns. Over time, age-related volume loss can cause cheeks to flatten and skin to sag. And loss of elasticity in the skin and genetics can cause moderate to severe lines and skin folds around the nose and mouth and loss of definition and volume in the lips. Luckily, we now have the ability to provide natural-looking correction with lasting results, instantly!
At Doucet Med Spa, we always start with a global facial assessment during consultation. It is important to determine the cause of skin folds and facial wrinkles in certain areas before we make the appropriate treatment recommendations for correction. With the JUVEDERM Collection of Fillers from Allergan, we now have 5 dermal fillers to use in combination that give us the ability to LIFT, CONTOUR, DEFINE, FILL and PLUMP instantly and without surgery!
The Juvederm Collection of fillers last between 1 and 2 years. Most patients visit about every year for reassessment and possible touch ups in certain areas. The lasting effects of these “sugar fillers” will vary according to each individual’s rate of metabolization and skin quality.

What should I expect after treatment?
Results are instant. You can expect redness and some swelling at injection sites directly after treatment. You will may feel slightly puffy for a few days and sometimes a little lumpy. Over the next 4 weeks the area becomes smooth and feels natural. Bruising can be expected but does not always occur. Blood thinning medication, alcohol and some supplements may thin the blood and increase the likelihood for bruising.
After lip injection for volume, lips will swell immediately and will likely appear plumper during the next 3-5 days until the swelling subsides. (Most patients love the look of the swelling!)
