In All The Right Spots!
Your filler procedure will begin with a careful assessment of your goals and concerns, as well as your facial anatomy.
During the procedure, HA filler will be injected into pre-determined areas. Topical or injected anesthetics can be used for your comfort as needed, though typically the procedure is not terribly uncomfortable.
There is technically no down time after a filler procedure, however depending on the area treated, you may have some mild bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness for a few days after. For this reason, we recommend doing a filler treatment at least 2-4 weeks before a big event.

The End Result
The results of a filler procedure are instantaneous, however due to the time it takes for your tissues to heal, full results are typically observed by 14 days after treatment.
Depending on which area has been injected, and which filler product was selected, your results can last around 6-12 months.
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
What Are Fillers?
There are many different types of dermal filler. At Lumera, we use FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) gel fillers from Juvederm and Restylane. HA is a substance that’s naturally occurring in the human body. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, volume in our facial bones, and normal supportive fat pads. Together with the effects of gravity, these natural changes result in the signs of aging.
HA fillers can be used strategically to:
Recreate a youthful cheek bone curvature
Soften lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Create a smooth and defined jaw line
Bring volume and hydration to deflated lips
Reduce undereye hollows
Rebalance your facial proportions
Enhance the natural contours of your face
When HA fillers are placed carefully, the results are beautiful and natural, and no one will ever know you had filler placed – they will just notice how well-rested and rejuvenated you look!
Is the procedure painful?
Dermal filler procedures are usually minimally painful. If needed, topical or injectable anesthetics can be used to keep you very comfortable. For lip filler, we typically use a nerve block to ensure your comfort.
How many sessions will I need?
While filler results are somewhat instantaneous, some people require 2-3 sessions over a period of 2-3 months to achieve optimal correction and results. This allows time for your tissue to heal and adjust as filler is added.
How long does it take?
Your dermal filler procedure will start with a 30 to 60-minute in-depth consultation to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history, and assess your facial anatomy. The procedure itself takes about 30-45 minutes.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
