CFR’s Injectable and Dermal Filler 101

At Center for Facial Rejuvenation in Chattanooga, TN, we offer many cosmetic injectable to help our clients look younger and achieve smooth, revitalized skin. The below is an easy guide to help you learn more about your desired treatment based on your current aesthetic concerns.

Loss of Facial Volume

Dermal fillers, plump and smooth skin, adding volume that creates the appearance of a lift. They can be applied in the mid-face (cheeks), around the jowls, and even on the lips to add volume.

Cheek Lift solutions include Lyft and Voluma for those looking to create the perfect cheek lift.

Lip Enhancement solutions include Volbella, Restylane®, and Juvéderm® to achieve a more youthful and full lip enhancement.

Expression Lines

Lines and wrinkles can be caused by repeated expressions such as furrowing your brow, frowning and smiling. BOTOX® injections prevent certain facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles. It’s a great and quick way to make skin appear more youthful by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and can even create a subtle brow lift while smoothing the area above.

Double Chin

A pocket of fat below the chin can be troublesome and make your face look rounded or full. With a Kybella® injection, fat cells art the treatment site are eliminated. The result is a well-sculpted profile. To learn more about how Kybella® contours jawlines without liposuction, click here.

Lines around Mouth + Marionette Lines

One of the unfortunate signs of aging is increased skin laxity. Lines from the nose to the mouth and marionette lines will stand out more as skin loses its elasticity. Restylane® Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn TechnologyTM to add volume to deepened lines in your face. Similar to Restylane® Refyne, this dermal filler also uses a unique cross-linking technology in its gel to create natural-looking results and natural facial movements.

Leveraging AccuVein Technology to Further Reduce Bruising after Injecting

At Center for Facial Rejuvenation, we are dedicated to safe practices and always educate patients on what to expect during and after their injectable appointment, including the possibility of temporary bruising. While most aesthetic practices also follow this same best practice, we continually look for ways to improve out client’s experience and outcomes with the latest innovations and technology. It is for this reason that we have added the AccuVein vein visualization technology, commonly used in hospitals, to help improve our aesthetic procedures by providing better vein visibility (that means there’s an even smaller chance of bruising!)

At CFR, we have the AccuVein AV400, a non-contact, lightweight, portable vein illumination device. It provides a visual road map of the client’s vasculature (aka, blood vessels) on the surface of the skin where injectable like BOTOX® are used. The ability to visualize a client’s unique anatomy helps us avoid veins by refining injection placement to minimize bruising during injectable procedures.

We are able to achieve superior results for our clients because of our extensive experience and participation in continuing education, but, with the addition of the AccuVein technology, we’re able to be even more precise and continue to set the bar for Fillers and BOTOX® results in Chattanooga.

When it comes to cosmetic enhancements, choose our highly experienced team of skilled Injectors, and the technology that helps improve your recovery time and results even more. Call us today to start looking and feeling your best!
