Along with Botox®, facial fillers have gained tremendous popularity in the field of skincare and aesthetics. Unlike Botox®, however, these injectable implants do not work to freeze underlying muscles but use certain FDA-approved substances to smooth wrinkles, augment specific facial features, and increase facial volume.
Clients often choose facial fillers for their ability to achieve a more youthful, healthy look with a quick, easy, and minimally invasive procedure. These treatments often provide immediate and noticeable results while still managing to look and feel natural.

Facial Fillers We Use
At My Bodyworx Wellness, Juvederm® is the type of facial filler we use. Juvederm® is a gel injection that is mainly comprised of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally existing component within our skin. It's necessary to maintain its plumpness and hydration. Unfortunately, like collagen, it naturally depletes over time, exacerbating noticeable aging.
Fillers such as Juvederm® can quickly integrate into your skin and help replenish the lost hyaluronic acid, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
This hyaluronic acid-based filler is comprised of unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft, even improvement.
It is most often used in the realm of facial treatments to:
- Temporarily smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Particularly the smile lines and the other areas surrounding the lips and mouth)
- Treat hollowing or fine lines underneath the eyes
What Can I Expect From the Procedure?
This safe and simple treatment is performed in the office by an experienced professional following a detailed consultation.
In this session, our medical professional will ensure that you are a good candidate for facial fillers. They will go over which treatment or combination of treatments will allow you to achieve your aesthetic goals.
When it comes time for the procedure, the area or areas for treatment will be marked, cleaned with antiseptic, and injected. If preferred, we can also minimize the slight needle discomfort by applying an anesthetic to the skin before your injections.
The entire process should take between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on your individual needs and the number of injections.
Typically, patients will begin to see results immediately and can resume most normal activities. However, keep in mind there may be some swelling, bruising, or discomfort (especially in areas like the lips) for about a week after. Until the swelling and redness have subsided, avoid activities that involve intense heat, such as sunbathing, hot tubs, or hot wax.
Facial fillers are not typically permanent. Most will last anywhere from six to 18 months, depending on how your body reacts to them.
