Ideal MedSpas in McDonough, Georgia, offers injectable dermal fillers to plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles, improve the appearance of recessed scars, and reverse the signs of aging. Regardless of your intent, dermal fillers offer some of the safest and most versatile options to restore a natural and younger-looking you. Skin loses collagen and elasticity as we age. Facial features once accentuated by fullness can become marked by more severe contours and thin skin. In addition, we lose bone mass that influences our facial structure. Injectable Fillers, such as Juvederm, can restore youthful volume and structure to your face. To find out more, call or book online.
The facial fillers used at Ideal MedSpas are made from hyaluronic acid. The use of fillers can eliminate wrinkles, plump, and hydrate lips, replace soft-tissue volume loss, raise scar depressions, and volumize creases and folds of the face. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to such damage through facial injections.
Because everyone’s needs are different, and with such a wide variety of treatments involving filler, a personal consultation is the best way to establish the cost. With that in mind, filler treatments start at $600. This cost not only reflects the price of the product, but also the skill, knowledge, and expertise of the medical injector. The practice does not do price matching.
LIPS: Youthful lips that are plump and volumized lose elasticity and fullness over time, creating sagging or thinning lips. Whether aging has caused them to thin, or your lips have never had the volume you desire, you are not alone. Many people wish their lips were larger, more full. The lips are one of the most popular areas for dermal filler injections, that when performed correctly by a skillful injector, will plump the lips for a gentle, natural-looking result. Lip Augmentations are one of the specialties at Ideal MedSpas.
CHEEKS: Over time, our cheeks start to flatten, and the skin may begin to sag, causing the "sunken cheeks" look that tends to make people feel older than they really are. This natural loss of volume in the cheek area is what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. Injections can add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area, restore round contours, and produce those sought-after high cheekbones that people consider markers of natural beauty.
NASOLABIAL FOLDS (SMILE LINES): For most of us, smile lines – also known as nasolabial folds – are nothing to smile about. These lines and creases run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth and are the result of the loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as we age. They can make you look older, tired, or unhappy – even though you feel youthful inside.
MARIONETTE LINES: Even if you have never heard of marionette lines, you probably know what they are. These lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth can make you look unhappy. Marionette lines form as facial volume begins to deplete and deeper creases begin to form below the mouth.
VERTICAL LIP LINES (PUCKER LINES/SMOKER LINES): Time is working against your skin’s appearance. Every time you speak, eat, drink from a straw, smoke, kiss, or smile, your skin remembers, and lines eventually begin to show on your face. The vertical lines above and below your lips can be difficult to hide with makeup and are often highlighted when a bright shade of lipstick bleeds into them.
CORNERS OF THE MOUTH: The corners of the mouth, also known as the oral commissures, can turn downward as you age and lose volume below the mouth. This downturned appearance of the mouth can make you look like you are frowning or even mad. In addition, volume loss in this area often leads to the formation or the deepening of already-formed marionette lines.
HANDS: Many people wonder how to get rid of hand wrinkles. Now you can improve the appearance of your aging hands with dermal fillers. They help restore a more youthful appearance to hands, it is a quick, in-office treatment, it reduces the appearance of tendons and veins, and delivers smooth, natural-looking results that last up to a year in most patients.
Results are visible immediately after treatment. The healing process then begins which involves swelling for about 3-7 days depending on the amount injected, the area injected, and how your body reacts to the procedure.
The product then settles and you’ll enjoy your final results about 2-3 weeks after injections. Please give yourself a minimum of 2 weeks before any events or vacations in case of residual bruising and swelling.

Longevity differs from person to person and from treatment to treatment. Because the product is being injected into the body, some bodies may metabolize the product faster than others. See below for average longevity based on treatment:
Facial fillers are a temporary solution, and therefore to maintain results, treatments will need to be administered on a recurring basis (see longevity info above). Depending on aesthetic goals, some treatments may be spread out over a short period of time.
Swelling is normal and bruising is possible, so you should plan two weeks ahead of any events or vacations. However, most patients find that recovery is easy.
