Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based fillers are used to restore age-related volume loss.
They can help to enhance and contour facial features. Results are natural and immediate peaking at 2 weeks. Areas that can be treated using fillers include your cheeks, chin and jawline, lips, under eyes, and temples.
Types of Fillers
Different types of FDA-approved Hyaluronic acid fillers include:
Restylane (Lyft, Contour, Defyne, Refyne, Kysse) and Versa.
In the case of downtime after this treatment: Avoid exercise and makeup application for 24 hours after treatment. Additionally, you should avoid facials or applying pressure to your face for at least a week. Also, some laser treatments to the face should be avoided post-treatment.
The effects of this treatment are immediate and they last, on average, for a year.
Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite) filler.
It can stimulate collagen and elastin, while providing immediate results for facial volumization and contouring. It’s ideal for contouring the cheekbones, chin, and jawlines. However, it can also be used for necklines, as well as improving texture and tone to thighs and knees. Hands are another area that can be volumized using Radiesse.
This treatment can be done in two sessions, spaced six to eight weeks apart. After this, maintenance isn’t needed for one to two years.
On the subject of downtime, you should avoid exercise or makeup application for 24 hours following this procedure.

Considering Sculptra as an injectable treatment?
Reach out to us at Magnolia Med Spa to schedule an appointment.
Sculptra is an injectable used to stimulate your own collagen slowly over time. This creates natural volumization to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production, in order to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. This is what separates it from hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. It is made with a biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body. It can be used to treat a number of areas, including the full face, chest lines, hips, and buttocks.
This treatment comes in the form of 1 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. The results last for around 2 years before maintenance is required.
In terms of downtime, you should avoid makeup application and exercise for 24 hours after the treatment.
