Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. This is in addition to other age-related changes under the skin, including thinning of the fat pads, loss of collagen, elastin, and connective tissues, thinning of the muscles, and bone loss by osteoporosis. At Glo & Sparkle Med Spa, we strive to deliver the best dermal fillers Lubbock has to offer. We will offer you an individualized consultation to determine your unique aesthetic goals and if fillers are right for you. Generally, we do not recommend having dermal filler treatment for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding or with visible scars at the treatment site, have a history of allergic reactions, or currently have an active acne breakout or other inflammatory diseases of the skin, such as Rosacea, psoriasis, or dermatitis.
restoring volume and fullness
Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face and hands. There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. All Restylane products are transparent hyaluronic acids, which are sugars naturally found in the skin that help provide hydration, fullness, and elasticity. Dermal fillers are artificially modified hyaluronic acid that are used to replace the diminished natural hyaluronic acid and therefore restore skin volume and hydration. For all these fillers, volume restoration is achieved by the filler itself as well as attracting water to itself for additional plumbing effect.
Here at Glo & Sparkle Med Spa, we offer a variety of dermal fillers, including Restylane® and Revanesse products. Restylane fillers include Restylane Lyft, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, and Contour, among others. The Restylane family of products is indicated for patients over the age of 21. Below is a description of what each is used for:
This is a hyaluronic acid filler FDA -approved to treat your face and hands. Restylane Lyft is used to restore lost volume in the deep layers of the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nose-to-lip lines (nasolabial folds), adding volume to the cheeks for augmentation and for the correction of age-related loss of volume in the middle-of-face contour. Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine is also used to add volume to the back of the hands to correct volume loss and to the chin to help improve facial symmetry.
Lips lose volume, color, and elasticity with age. Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that adds volume, smooths upper lip lines for up to one year, and enhances lip color; therefore, it is used for lip volume augmentation and for correction of wrinkles on the upper lip around the mouth (upper perioral wrinkles/smoker’s lines)
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. This leads to lines that run along the sides of the face and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) to become more pronounced, as well as the chin to recede so far back toward the neck that it creates an imbalance of the facial features. Restylane Defyne is used to correct these issues, with the main indications being for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) as well as enhance chin projection, therefore restoring a more youthful, natural appearance while maintaining your natural expressions and movements.
Restylane Refyne helps smooth away laugh lines, the wrinkles that appear over time at the corners of your mouth. Refyne’s special formula allows it to be used in very dynamic areas, such as around the lips, without it migrating or losing effectiveness.
Restylane Contour is used for cheek augmentation and for the correction of midface contour deficiencies.
We also offer several fillers from the Juvederm family of products, including Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure, and Volbella. These fillers offer versatility in treatment for wrinkles and lack of volume in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, lips, and under the eyes.
smooth. uniform. balanced and natural.
There are so many dermal fillers that it can become difficult to decide on which one to get. At Glo & Sparkle Med Spa, one of the fillers we use is Revanesse Versa.
This is one of the best, most effective, and safest dermal fillers. Like most dermal fillers, Revanesse Versa is made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally synthesized substance in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is a chain of sugars produced naturally in the body to aid with skin hydration by binding to water. Revanesse Versa is unique in that it is a homogenous, smooth, and easy-flowing filler that is created by state-of-the-art wet milling technology and a proprietary formula. This results in uniform, smooth, and perfectly spherical tiny filler particles. This ensures that once injected, it feels smooth, uniform, balanced and natural, with no associated “lumps and bumps” feel.
Revanesse Versa was designed to treat cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds and can be used in most areas of the face. It works by adding volume and restoring hydration. Common issues that can be fixed with fillers like Revanesse Versa include:
Due to the unique processing and manufacturing process, Revanesse Versa is associated with:
Injection depth: For our Lubbock dermal filler patients, injection is done into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to more severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as laugh lines.
Are Fillers Right for You?
A number of aesthetic treatments can be done to replenish moisture and restore lost collagen to tighten skin, but dermal fillers can certainly do the trick by filling up gaps and spaces left by the many aging-related loses of different components of the facial structure. Revanesse Versa. Juvederm and Restylane are injected with a smooth microneedle to areas of moderate to severe lines and creases, leading them to plump up and become better contoured.

After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips. Lubbock dermal filler patients should be limited to 6.0 mL per treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. For the treatment of volume deficit in the hands, patients should be limited to 3.0 mL per hand per treatment. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
There are several factors that figure into how much treatment will cost, including the number of treatment sessions needed, the amount of Restylane product used per session, and the degree of necessary correction determined by you and your specialist. Since injection costs will vary from person to person, the best way to determine projected costs is to discuss them with one of our providers at Glo & Sparkle Aesthetics and Med Spa during your consultation.
The dermal filler injection procedure is straightforward. It involves a few tiny injections directly into the skin and takes 30 minutes or less. Results vary depending on your skin type and quality, the severity of the problem being treated, and the specific location being treated. Most patients see results instantly with improvement over the course of 2-4 weeks after treatment and may last up to 9-18 months. At Glo & Sparkle Med Spa, we will review the procedure, what to expect, and your questions in detail during your individualized consultation.
Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane treatment appointments last less than an hour and begin to work almost immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane products act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally).
