About Dermal Fillers

CONTOURING & SMOOTHING

The facial fillers we use are all FDA-approved and our injectors are highly skilled and trained in various techniques to achieve the best and most natural-looking results. Our goal is always to restore a youthful appearance and achieve the highest standard of results.

The use of fillers can eliminate wrinkles, plump and hydrate lips, replace soft-tissue volume loss, and volumize creases and folds of the face. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to that damage through facial injections. It is normal to lose several milliliters of volume comprised of skin, fat, muscle, and bone in the face from age 25 years and beyond.

We specialize in youth restoration and natural results that enhances and accentuates natural bone and fat pad structure, and each individuals unique features.

Our Haven Signature 8 Point Lift is the most popular filler procedure.

  • Schedule appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. to avoid undesirable bruising at the time of the event.

Post-Treatment

  • Some bruising and swelling may occur around the areas that were injected. Apply ice for the first hour after treatment for ten minutes on and ten minutes off. Report any redness, blisters, or itching immediately if it occurs after treatment.

  • DO NOT touch, press, rub or manipulate the treatment area(s) for the rest of the day after treatment. Avoid kissing, puckering and sucking movements for the rest of the day as these motor movements can undesirably displace the implanted dermal filler material. You can cause irritation, sores, and/or problems, and possible scarring if you do.
