It’s Holiday Time in Minnesota: Get Filled Up on Dermal Fillers!


Dermal Fillers: Everything you need to know.

Dermal Fillers

This Holiday Season, take a look into the next facial frontier with fillers at Claris Eye Care & Surgery. Dermal fillers are a safe and highly effective way to not only turn back the hands of time, with a more youthful looking face but to weather the storm over seasonal indulgences!

You want to look your best at all your holiday parties this year and the face is the focus of human interaction. In fact, it is commonly accepted that facial appearance can have far reaching effects on self- esteem or even our careers. Did you know that plumping up a downturned mouth creates a cheerier expression and therefore a more positive outlook? Neither did I!

Holiday party foods loaded in salt sugar and fat can wreak havoc on our skin and our bodies. Combine that with a years worth of alcohol consumption and it can leave your face looking like the Sahara Desert.  Fill in those lines just in time with dermal fillers at Claris.

Restore, Replenish & Refresh

Lucky for you with just one filler injection, you can restore and replenish volume resulting in a refreshed new you. Tired of those under-eye circles, deep folds and facial wrinkles? Maybe it’s time for you to ‘get in the groove’. That’s right! Face down those under-eye circles, thinning lips and facial contours thanks to dermal filler and volume replacement with Juvederm. Juvederm’s secret weapon is hyaluronic acid—a complex sugar that occurs naturally in the body and develops the volume and elasticity of the skin.  Dermal Fillers containing hyaluronate proteins are used to replace the natural proteins lost with age and add volume, taking years off your appearance. The procedure is fast and nearly painless and lasts for over a year.

Time To Turn that Frown Upside down

Whether it’s medically necessary, you want to delay the outward appearance of aging or you simply want to look your best, now is the right time to come in to Claris in Minneapolis and let them give you something to smile about!

Claris Eye Care & Surgery of Minneapolis cares about keeping your eyes healthy, and also about being happy with what you see when you look in the mirror. Dermal fillers temporarily add volume to your skin, alleviate facial wrinkles and give the appearance of a smoother surface.

Even when it comes to cosmetic medicine, Claris is at the forefront of technology. That’s why we’ve elected to use Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, two formulations enjoyed by Canadians and Europeans for years, now available to patients in the United States. Dr. Carlson performs all cosmetic treatments at Claris Eye Care & Surgery to ensure the highest quality results for the treatment of your face. Juvederm is available in two strengths: Ultra & Ultra Plus- Ultra Plus is thicker and better suited for deeper, more defined wrinkles, folds and lines.

The most commonly treated area s of the face are:

  • Glabellar Lines (frown lines)
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Crow’s feet (usually used in conjunction with a muscle relaxant like Botox)
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Lip wrinkles
  • Thinning lips
  • Downturned mouth
  • Dark circles under the eyes

JUVÉDERM® treatments are relatively pain-free as a topical numbing cream is often applied to the area prior to the injection. If requested, treatments may be performed with an injected local anesthetic for complete comfort. The process takes approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of areas you are injecting. Results are immediate and last up to 1 year. Recovery time is quick and easy with Juvederm as well. Patients are usually able to return to normal activity the same day as their procedure. However, strenuous exercise, excessive heat, and alcohol should be avoided to help minimize any risks to the injection areas.
