Dermal Fillers in Windham

At a certain point, it’s normal to notice signs of aging that weren’t obvious to you before. What were once subtle lines and wrinkles have started to deepen over time. Cheeks that used to appear full and taught suddenly seem to sag and droop, and formerly full lips seem thin and flattened.  While aging is a reality of life, it doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a natural, more youthful and refreshed look along the way. Today’s dermal fillers and injection techniques have advanced to the point where many are forgoing the risk and downtime of a facelift in favor of these less invasive procedures.

Dr. Lisa Vuich and Renew MediSpa offer a variety of dermal fillers designed to deliver long lasting results. Achieving the best dermal filler results depends on more than finding the right dermal fillers. An experienced injector is the key to achieving exquisite results that don’t look overdone.  

In general, I think people tend to worry too much about what is in the syringe and not enough about who is holding the syringe. Selecting your injector is like selecting an artist who is also a master technician. It is not as simple as looking for a particular degree or board certification.  I recommend that clients look for an injector with many years of experience in both basic and advanced dermal filler techniques, and preferably someone who injects on a daily basis and can share with you before and after images of their work. The ideal injector will also listen to your concerns and guide you through not only proper filler selection but also consideration of other complimentary procedures (ex: laser, radiofrequency, microneedling, etc…) to get you to your aesthetic goals.  If we try to accomplish ‘too much’ with volume alone, this is when results can tend to look over plumped and unnatural. At Renew MediSpa we know how and when to use our array of elegant dermal fillers to correct lost volume in a way that enhances your natural beauty. – Lisa Vuich, MD

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Many of the most popular dermal fillers are composed primarily of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that’s naturally produced in your body. It was approved as a dermal filler by the FDA back in 2003. HA fillers are gradually absorbed by the body.

They are injected into the skin to enhance volume and to soften the appearance of static (unmoving) wrinkles and folds. Depending on the type and the formula, dermal fillers are wonderful for softening wrinkles like worry lines, smile lines, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines.

In an era that celebrates luscious lips, dermal fillers with softer and more flexible properties are becoming the perfect treatment for plumping the lips and redefining their borders.

In experienced hands, dermal fillers can also be used for:

  • Chin augmentation
  • Softening the appearance of acne scars
  • Softening the appearance of jowls
  • Subtle nose reshaping
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Tear trough correction
  • Softening periorbital lines “crow’s feet”

How Are Dermal Fillers Placed?

Dermal fillers are injected using a traditional needle, or with a microcannula. A microcannula is blunt tipped and longer than most straight needles. It is also flexible. As the microcannula is advanced, its blunt tip can push aside blood vessels and nerves rather than piercing them. This can result is less pain, less bruising, and is also considered by most to be a safer technique. After an initial tiny hole is placed with a straight needle, the microcannula is threaded into or beneath the skin to deliver the dermal filler. Renew MediSpa injectors are experts in the use of microcannulas and will use them to deliver dermal filler whenever feasible.

“One of the things I love about microcannulas, in addition to the improved comfort and safety, is the collagen stimulation I can achieve with them. For the patient, it’s like two benefits for the cost of one. I can fan the microcannula through a region, for example the side of the face or above the upper lip, wherever fine lines are a concern. This process leads to microtrauma, which then results in collagen formation during the healing process. That collagen will outlast even the filler that is placed. As good as the correction looks immediately from the dermal filler alone, it looks even better in a few weeks time, and also very natural.”  Lisa Vuich, MD

Our Dermal Fillers

The following are some general guidelines regarding our most commonly used dermal fillers. Included are both “on label” and “off label” uses of dermal fillers. An “on label” use is one which has been formally evaluated by the FDA and can be marketed to the public for that indication by the company which produces the dermal filler. Injectors commonly use products for off label indications as well.

As is evident below, there is much overlap in terms of uses of the various dermal fillers. Your experienced dermal filler injector is your guide to help selection of the best products based on your goals, anatomy and budget.

How Long Will Dermal Fillers Last?

Patients should see an immediate improvement after their dermal filler treatment. On average, dermal fillers can last for around 6 months to a year. Some unique dermal fillers like Bellafill can last for as long as 5 years. Of course, the duration of effect will depend on what dermal fillers are used where they are placed. Dermal fillers in hyperdynamic regions (parts of the body that move a lot) like the lips might disappear more quickly than the same filler placed in a more static region like the cheek. Combining dermal fillers with platelet rich plasma, the so-called Vampire Facelift, can also extended the duration of the correction.

Recovery from Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers require no downtime or recovery period, but patients may experience temporary side effects like swelling, bruising, redness and soreness after the treatment. The degree and duration of these minor side effects depend on multiple factors such as product selection, injection technique, and the region injection.

Client Testimonials

Dear Dr Lisa Vuich,

Thank you thank you thank you- I woke up this morning and I love how you fixed my face – everything is even and smooth- Jim says I look great-  I cant thank you enough- and thank you so so much for the discount that was very kind of you- my skin test is clear, no rash- so im going to start saving again for Bellafill- I will not make the mistake of going somewhere else again- I just wanted to say thank you and I’ll see you in spring of 2017 for Bellafill-Happiest patient ever!!! – B.T. October 5, 2016

I woke up one morning and discovered I was unexpectedly single and almost 50 years old.  Worse than that, I had just received a package of professional photos for work and YIKES!!! I couldn’t believe how my ‘expression lines’ had turned into such deep wrinkles. They say the mirror doesn’t lie but photos really show the brutal truth!

Starting with my very first appointment, Dr. Lisa Vuich was patient, kind and a miracle worker!!! She let me express my concerns (including financial), explained what each injection (botox and filler) would accomplish and proceeded to administer my treatment as gently as possible.  When finished, she handed me a mirror.  I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES!!  Gone were the life-long forehead lines, the incredibly deep nasolabial folds and the dark circles under my eyes. I looked 15+ years younger and felt absolutely beautiful. Dr. Lisa had given me the face I always wanted. Ok, maybe it didn’t change my life, but it absolutely changed how I felt about myself and my appearance.

Now it is almost 10 years later and I still see Dr. Lisa twice a year to maintain my wrinkle-free face. Her prices are the most reasonable I have found and I am always able to get an appointment within a few days.  I wouldn’t consider switching to anyone else!  Thank you Dr. Lisa! – Angela M. October 2016

Wow! That’s all I can say about my most recent visit to see Lisa. I had a Restylane® lift and the results are really fantastic! I look just like myself minus at least five years. The results were immediate. Lisa knows exactly how much to use and where so you don’t get an overdone odd look. But trust me it’s beyond noticeable to me. I highly recommend Lisa and trust her with my face. I plan on seeing her for any and all future touch ups. I feel rejuvenated! Thank You!! – L.G.- September 2015

I travel 3 hours to go to this spa and the people are wonderful. It is worth the trip. Thanks for the great service you provide. – JAW, October, 2013

When you walk in the decor is soothing and the front desk staff are inviting and friendly. Thank you ladies!!I highly recommend this spa and all services they offer!!! – Bren N. February 2015

I have been going to Renew for four years now, and have never felt more confident. I recently had lip filler injected and such a subtle difference has made an enormous difference in my self esteem and the compliments I have received from others. Lisa is brilliant at her craft! – K.W.  September 2015

Renew MediSpa is the best by far! Dr. Vuich performs miracles in a warm and friendly atmosphere with top of the line products and procedures. If you haven’t been to Renew…You’re missing out!!!! – P.F. August 2015
