Fillers are injectable minimally invasive treatments that restores facial contours and improves the signs of aging.
At Bliss Health and Wellness, clients can receive facial fillers which contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that retains moisture, elasticity, and volume that gets lost as we age. Facial fillers are commonly used to address facial lines and wrinkles in addition to adding volume to deflated areas on the face. It is also known to stimulate collagen production to improve skin elasticity and health. Dr. Karen offers a variety of products depending on the area of the face, which both work to dramatically enhance the skin for a stunning and youthful appearance.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Fillers consist of hyaluronic acid that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The treated areas will be gently massaged so that the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After filler treatments, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother almost immediately.

How long does it take for Botox to take effect?You should start noticing changes in 2-3 days after your treatment, but it takes 2 weeks to see the full effect. I recommend that first time patients follow up 2 weeks after their treatment to assess the response/effect of the treatment as each person’s anatomy is different.
