Wrinkle Fillers by ROXY Plastic Surgery
As we get older, our faces lose volume causing deep creases around our mouths, eyes or just about anywhere on the face. This can cause you to look tired and aged. Injectable dermal fillers are the perfect solution to turn back the clock and give your skin a smooth, youthful look. Cosmetic fillers are non-surgical, require no “downtime” and are the best treatment available for wrinkles.
Women are not the only ones who have issues with deep wrinkles. We know that men are also wanting to look younger. Our Men’s Room offers facial fillers for men, such as Juvederm or Voluma. Wrinkle fillers are not only for erasing laugh lines and crow’s feet, they also help your skin appear healthier and give you a natural glow. Your skin will look fresh and vibrant!

HOW IT WORKS
Consultation and Planning
When you come to a consultation at ROXY Plastic Surgery, Dr. Grawe will determine if you are a good candidate for Dermal Filler Treatment. You will discuss how these facial fillers work and go over which areas can be improved. Many clients choose to address the folds around their mouths (Nasolabial Folds) while others focus on increasing the volume in their cheeks which looks youthful and natural. These filler injections can also be used in the lower eyelid to get rid of the tired, “hollowed out” look.
You will be given ice to place over the areas to be treated and your skin is cleaned off with an alcohol preparation pad. Dr. Grawe will numb up the area so that you will not feel any pain during the treatment. Then very small injections are made to deposit the filler. The whole process takes only minutes. You will see instant results.

There is no real “down-time” with this type of treatment. You can perform your normal activities the same day. You will notice an instant result. Some patients have minor bruising and swelling which will go away quickly. You should use ice the day of the procedure to keep this to a minimum. On the day you come in, you will notice that your look younger.
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
With every treatment there are risks involved including bleeding and infection – but these risks are very rare with Filler Injections:
Your face already has asymmetries to it naturally. With Juvederm, you can usually make this asymmetry better but there still may be differences between the sides.
When Juvederm® is injected, there may be small bumps that can be felt along the path of the injection. Dr. Grawe will show you how to massage these away.
Continued wrinkle or depression: If you do not have full correction of the treated area, you may just need more Juvederm® to fill this area out. You can have another treatment at anytime to get the look you want!
This is minimal and can be decreased by not taking blood thinning medications (Advil, Motrin, Coumadin, Plavix, Lovenox, herbal medications, vitamin E) and by using ice before and after the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Most dermal fillers, like Juvederm® or Voluma are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance is naturally present in our own skin but is lost throughout the aging process. It helps to form collagen and retain water in the area where it exists – causing the area to look full and soft.
Because HA is a natural substance found in our skin, it does not usually cause any type of allergic reaction. Your body incorporates into the product and looks at it like it is its own.
Fillers work by restoring natural volume to the area that is injected which has been lost during the normal aging process. The hyaluronic acid which is injected into the area is recognized by your body and your natural tissues work with it to create collagen and retain water to create a full, plump look.
Most people are able to have filler treatment. You should stop any blood thinning medications before your injections.
Dr. Grawe will numb the area with either topical or local anesthetic (your choice) so the filler placement is pain free.
Typically, Juvederm lasts 9-12 months while Voluma lasts 2.5 years. However, the more you maintain the filler, the longer it begins to last.
As hyaluronic acid is naturally broken down by the body over time, there are no long term complications.

ROXY Plastic Surgery also offers Botox® treatments for men and women. Botox® is not used as a wrinkle filler but instead it relaxes your muscles to soften wrinkles, giving your skin a smooth appearance. View the ROXY Before/After Botox Gallery.
