Wrinkles and lost facial volume? You’re not alone.
Facial Fillers can be used to treat: deep wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines, vertical lips lines, marionette lines, hollowed cheeks, declining lip volume and acne scars.
Aging skin is a continuous natural process in which we all go through, aging skin can start as early as our mid 20’s. There are two important substances that make up healthy and youthful looking skin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish. As a result your skin loses structure and volume causing wrinkles and fine lines to become visible. There are many factors that contribute to the speed of this process such as heredity and sun exposure.
While you cannot stop the aging process, scientific research has created new anti-aging treatment options. Allure Medical Spa offers a variety of age-defying treatments to obtain a healthier and more youthful appearance. As highly experienced Michigan cosmetic surgery providers, Dr. Mok and Dr. Kotlus can help you sort through the numerous procedures, discuss your expectations, and recommend suitable treatment plan options.
Facial fillers such as Botox, JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel, Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra Aesthetic, Perlane and FAMI™ can temporarily replace lost structure and volume. Fillers are injected just below the surface of the skin to add volume, thus, smoothing unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Facial Fillers at Allure Medical Spa:
Botox: Botox is a tiny protein that is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles. While fillers are used to fill wrinkles and can be used anywhere, Botox relaxes muscles and is mostly used on the upper face. There are numerous areas that cosmetic Botox can treat including wrinkles around the eyes, frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead worry lines, bunny lines and more. READ MORE ABOUT BOTOX HERE

Radiesse is a safe FDA approved advanced calcium based cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles. Radiesse restores a natural, youthful look with fewer injections with immediate results. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, is safe and a longer lasting treatment to fill and correct smile lines, Nasolabial Folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Restylane – a natural “beauty lift” with the body’s own material. Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.
Perlane is designed for deeper facial wrinkles it contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. Perlane is injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold, creating volume and resulting in a youthful more natural appearance. Perlane is not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, Perlane is perfectly safe to use without pre-testing. Perlane has up to twice the longevity of standard collagen implant treatments.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid”, it is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Sculptra Aesthetic is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. Sculptra Aesthetic provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions. In a clinical study, the treatment results lasted for up to 2 years after the first treatment session, in most patients.
FAMI™ – Facial Autograft Muscle Injection or FAMI™ as it is more commonly referenced is a non-surgical fat transfer procedure to rejuvenate facial volume deficiency. Losing facial volume is a common side effect to aging. One cause is due to diminishing collagen, which gives the appearance of sagging and/or slightly sunken areas. FAMI™ delivers long lasting results that include a symmetrical, fuller and more youthful appearance. A fat transfer of your own fat is not perceived as a foreign substance by your body so FAMI™ presents no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.
Facial Filler treatments are relatively simple, and usually last about 30 minutes, a numbing cream is applied, and with a few accurately placed injections wrinkles are smoothed out. Side effects are temporary and may include redness, swelling, pain, firmness, lumps, and/or bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and extreme cold weather should be avoided until any initial swelling and redness have resolved.
