Do you look in the mirror and use your palms to lift both sides of your face?
Cheek filler is the next best step for you! As we age we not only lose collagen but also bone and fat. Loss of these structural necessities causes us to appear tired and drawn. At Skin Retouch MediSpa Cheek fillers are our favorite for creating lasting change. You might even hear us say "cheek fillers are life!" The dermal filler for the midface can last up to two years and add lift and volume. We use a bone mimicking thicker filler that is placed directly on the cheekbone. Usually, 2 syringes are required to make an adequate change. The provider will recommend the correct filler for your needs during your consultation.

JUVÉDERM® (VOLUMA™ XC)
WHAT IS JUVÉDERM?
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY JUVÉDERM TREATMENT?
JUVÉDERM treatments typically only last about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being addressed. Your skin will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the process, JUVÉDERM dermal fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic).
After your treatment, you can continue your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be skipped for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not put your hands on your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas. You should start to see a noticeable enhancement immediately following your JUVÉDERM procedure, but you could also develop mild bruising or swelling in the treated areas for about 7 – 10 days.
The results of JUVÉDERM treatments usually last up to a year; several patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of injections. Talk to someone from our team about when to schedule your next injection session at Skin Retouch MediSpa to sustain your results.
What is Restylane®?
HOW ARE RESTYLANE KYSSE INJECTIONS PERFORMED?
Restylane Kysse injections are performed in our office at Skin Retouch MediSpa. A numbing cream may be applied for greater comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin with a fine-gauge needle and is massaged so it fills the selected areas. Multiple injections may be performed, followed by a cold compress to help control swelling. Once your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to normal activities. Your injection sites may be slightly red and swollen, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this may be concealed with cosmetics. It's recommended that you avoid exercise for a day, and you should sleep upright for the first night. Many patients will experience some changes right after treatment, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injections generally last up to a year based on the formula used.

What is RADIESSE®?
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM RADIESSE TREATMENTS?
RADIESSE dermal injections are performed in one of the treatment rooms at Skin Retouch MediSpa in about 30 – 60 minutes, sometimes directly after your consultation. To start the procedure, we will have you will lie in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout their procedure at the initial prick, but if preferred, a numbing agent may be used to provide more comfort. The RADIESSE dose, selected during your personalized treatment planning session, will be placed in a fine syringe. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer RADIESSE into the needed areas. After your procedure is done, a cold compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling. After your RADIESSE treatment, you may see mild swelling, redness, and bruising — this is normal and could last for about a week. These side effects can usually be covered with cosmetics. If the side effects last longer than ten days or seem excessive, please contact Dr. Ruff or one of our experienced team members. Most patients have some results right away with better results appearing in a month or so. Your face should appear younger, softer, and lifted. RADIESSE tends to last longer compared to some of the other fillers — up to 1 – 2 years. During your appointment, we can discuss when to get your next injection to maintain your results.
