Are you unsure if you’re a good candidate for filler?
Come in for a consult.
Modern Med keeps a filler reversal agent on hand at all times. If we correct another provider’s work, dissolving filler migration, or smoothing out lumps and bumps, we charge $100+. You’ll do a consult before reversing, and an estimate will be given. Filler reversal cannot be done within two weeks of receiving filler unless there is a concern of a vascular complication.
After the filler is reversed with the enzyme hyaluronidase, you will not be able to refill the area for two weeks!
CONSULT FOR PRICING
Filler is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) injected into skin tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid is to sort nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and act as a cushioning agent. The part of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.
Filler temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.
Injectable filler will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to plump lips, balance out facial features, and fill in hollowness/volume loss. Your provider will help guide you during a consultation on which filler product will be best for the results you are looking for.
Natural, pouty, plump, hydrated lips are achievable but may take multiple appointments. We will only inject one syringe per appointment due to the swelling and trauma the lips go through. You can make a second appointment for a more dramatic result a month later. Each filler appointment typically takes 1-2 hours.
Do not book your filler appointment one month out from any special event for best results. Give yourself plenty of time for bruising and swelling to go down.
Up to 9 months!
Instantly! The best result will be in 2 weeks- 1 month!
The lips are susceptible. We’ll apply a topical prescription strength-numbing cream. All of the fillers we carry have lidocaine in the syringe. However, this does not mean that you won’t feel anything. Receiving filler should be tolerable. Please tell your injector if your pain is too intense. Please eat before coming to your appointment.
Most side effects are mild or moderate, and their duration is short-lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, transient injection site responses such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are minimal, but if it does happen, the complications can be severe and permanent.
Filler can be reversed/dissolved with a drug called hyaluronidase which is kept in the office.
Forty-eight hours – 2 weeks of bruising, swelling, tenderness. Plan accordingly
Your injector will ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. The product should not be used in patients who have severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis, a history or presence of multiple severe allergies, allergies to lidocaine, and/or a history of gram-positive bacterial proteins. If you have a history of cold sores or herpes, you should be treated with an anti-viral by your primary care doctor before and after being injected, as injections could cause flare-ups. Unfortunately, you cannot get filler injections while pregnant or breastfeeding.

-Arnica is an OTC medication that can be bought and used to prevent bruising.
-Pain or Tenderness at Injection Site – Tylenol or Motrin is usually all required. Follow over-the-counter instructions.
