Dermal Fillers in OKC & Edmond
A MORE YOUTHFUL PROFILE IS WHAT EVERYONE DESIRES
It is unfortunate but true. We age, and as we do, there are many areas on our face that seem to develop saggy areas. This is partly due to loss of volume and gravity leading to sagging of the cheeks or the apples of our face. Next, our temples become hollow and jaw line softens and our chin recedes. Both men and women want to look as young as they feel. Needless to say we have busy careers, and we wish to remain competitive in the job market. We cannot afford a long down time and want to look fresh but not over corrected. In the past decade the use of Botox and fillers has dramatically changed our outlook.
In the past we had fillers that lasted a few months and who could blame someone for not coming every three months to have a filler injected in the face. Over the last few years there has been a dramatic change in the longevity of the fillers.
Here is a list of the fillers used at Genesis that will enhance your facial features without any downtime:
Juvederm: FDA approved hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in your body. Lasts a year and Dr. Panchal favors this product to enhance the lips. It can also be used in the area below the eyes and laugh lines (nasolabial lines). The product can be reversed or will disappear in a 24 hours with use of hyaluronidase.
Radiesse: FDA approved calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural substance in your body. Lasts just over a year and Dr. Panchal favors this product to enhance the area around your mouth, laugh lines, cheeks, chin and jaw line.
Sculptra: FDA approved products that last 2-3 years. Dr. Panchal favors this product to enhance your cheeks, jaw-line and temples. It cannot be used for laugh lines or below the eyes. The product gradually enhances your cheeks or temples over six to nine months and produces a natural looking lift.
Voluma: A FDA approved product made of hyaluronic acid with Vycross technology making it last approximately two years. Dr. Panchal favors this product to enhance the cheeks. The results are instantaneous. The product can be reversed with use of hyaluronidase if you so desire.

Bellafill: An FDA approved product made of bovine collagen and PMMA particles. Clinical studies have shown that the product lasts as long as 3-5 years and the only product that improves with time. The bovine collagen disappears with time but the particles persist and your own body will create new collagen around these particles and hence the product creates a better and a natural outcome with every passing year. Unlike other products mentioned above, this product does not disappear and continues to work for you. You will look five years younger for five years or longer. It does need a skin test to check whether you are allergic to the product or not.
A solution for vertical lip lines ---Finally!!!
Some women may want to add subtle volume to their lips and many may just want to soften the vertical lines around them. Fortunately, now there is a brand new filler called Volbella which is the first and only FDA approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the vertical lines on the lips. The filler lasts approximately a year.
96% of the patients treated experienced improvement in satisfaction and 88% experienced improvement in the vertical lines.
You are right candidate for Volbella if
- You would like to add subtle volume to your lips
- You would like to soften the appearance of the vertical lip lines
- You want a natural-looking, long lasting result
EVERYONE WILL N0TICE BUT NO ONE WILL KNOW.
We at Genesis are very cognizant of the discomfort while having an injection. We use micro cannula which has a blunt tip thereby reducing pain and bruising. We also use a vibrating device that distracts your brain and further reduces your discomfort while injecting. Whenever possible we will use a local anesthetic to numb the area too. I have had fillers in my face and I know every small thing makes the injection technique a very comfortable experience.
