With the right indications, facial rejuvenation can be achieved during a quick visit to Dr. Seal’s office. With goals for a more youthful, fresh appearance, injectable fillers can be used to enhance the natural contours of your face, eliminate lines and wrinkles, and/or augment lips and cheeks.

Injectable Fillers can be performed alone, or following other procedures such as, Facelift, Neck Lift, and other Facial Rejuvenation procedures.

Injectable Fillers Considerations
In general, these non-surgical procedures safely add more volume to aesthetically pleasing areas of the face to enhance your natural beauty. This is achieved using hyaluronic acid based fillers, which are non-animal derived, and a naturally occurring substance in the human body that do not require any allergy testing. They are safely broken down by the body over time.
Popular ares for enhancement include the lips to create a more full and sensual appearance, and the cheeks to restore a youthful, attractive facial harmony. Injectable fillers are also commonly used to fill in areas of deep wrinkles and facial irregularities, or to touch up areas from surgical cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedures. One of the benefits to these procedures is they can be incorporated into your busy day with minimal downtime.
What to expect during your recovery
Injectable Fillers are performed in the office with no required anesthetic. Occasionally, specific local anesthetic blocks can be used to improve your comfort with the procedure. You will be able to go home after the procedure to relax and recover, or return to work and regular activities that day if desired. The refreshed results usually appear within the first 3-to-7 days, and the results can last for approximately 6-to-12 months. They can be maintained with subsequent touch-up injections.
This is an excellent option for patients who would like to look and feel refreshed, without having the downtime from surgery.
