What are fillers?
Most fillers are made from NASHA gel (non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid). Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your skin and other tissues. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in giving volume to your skin, and thus contributing to its youthful appearance.
At Spa Lumina we exclusively use JUVÉDERM fillers by Allergan, a pioneer in the field of cosmetic injectables as well as the manufacturers of BOTOX COSMETIC injectable wrinkle treatment.
What are the benefits of JUVÉDERM treatments?
Each of us has good natural lines that can be emphasized and improved. JUVÉDERM can be used to give you a long-lasting and natural beauty lift - smoothing wrinkles and folds, and sculpting the lips for a fuller, more sensuous form. For an overall refreshed look, we can combine JUVÉDERM and BOTOX treatments for a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure called a Soft Lift.
What are lip fillers?
Lip injections with JUVÉDERM fillers are popular with adults of all ages because treatments are quick and results are instant. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® and JUVÉDERM VOLIFT® are specifically formulated for the lips.
Who is the best candidate for lip filler?
Good candidates for lip filler injections are in good health, do not smoke, and want any of the following improvements:
- Adding volume and definition to lips that have flattened with age.
- Creating a balance between the top and bottom lips.
- Enhancing naturally thin lips.
- Accenting the cupid's bow in the middle of the top lip.
- Smoothing out vertical lip lines around the top lip.
How long does JUVÉDERM last in the lips?
Lip filler results are temporary and last about 6 to 12 months. Periodic maintenance treatments can keep your lips looking their best.

Because the NASHA is produced by fermentation, there is no risk of transmitting diseases between species, or eliciting allergic reactions in clients who are sensitized to common foods, such as beef, chickens and eggs. They are acceptable to vegetarians. No skin testing is needed.
The sizes of the NASHA gel particles in fillers are custom tailored to match the tissue structures in the skin being treated. Nutrients, oxygen and hormones pass freely between the gel particles, maintaining the health and vitality of your skin. Since the body has its own system for absorbing hyaluronic acid, it slowly disappears over time without a trace.
What are JUVÉDERM treatments like?
The injections may prick a little, but no anesthetic is needed for the treatment of wrinkles and folds. Most people report that the injections are relatively painless. JUVÉDERM contains lidocaine for your comfort.
After the treatment, some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discolouration, and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days after the injection. Other types of reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 4,000 treated clients have experienced localized allergic like reactions. These reactions started about two to four weeks after the injection and last as long as two weeks.

How do I know how much JUVÉDERM I’ll need?
The amount of filler needed depends on the areas you want improved and your individual needs. Our experienced injectors will give you an estimate during your free consultation.
Are dermal fillers better than BOTOX?
It depends on what you'd like to accomplish. In general, these treatments have different uses, although there is some overlap. Here's what they are used for:
- BOTOX is an injectable treatment best for smoothing out dynamic wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes that are caused by repeated facial muscle contractions.
- JUVÉDERM fillers are best for filling in folds around the mouth, hollows around the eyes, and sunken cheeks. We also use them to sculpt the lips, nose, and chin.
Can I combine injectables?
Yes! Our Soft Lift and LUMINA LIFT procedures combine BOTOX and JUVÉDERM to provide more extensive facial rejuvenation than either treatment on its own. These combination treatments are an excellent choice for people who are not ready for a surgical facelift.
Is there anything I should avoid after getting dermal fillers?
No significant downtime is needed after these injections. For optimal results, we recommend the following precautions for the first 24 to 48 hours:
- Don't rub the injection sites.
- Keep pressure off treated areas.
- Avoid strenuous activities.
- Stay out of the sun.
- Do not drink alcohol.
Also, hold off getting a facial, massage, microdermabrasion, or waxing for about 2 weeks.
Is the treatment painful?
JUVÉDERM fillers contain numbing medication to minimize discomfort during injection. We use short, fine needles for the injections, which make the treatments easier.
