At Madison Medispa, we realize most people don’t want dramatic, unnatural looking changes. Rather than risking over treatment, we are conservative with our injectables, (especially if it’s your very first treatment) knowing that it is very easy to add a little more at your follow up visit if you wish to see a greater change.
Getting Started. When you come in for your first visit, we will schedule extra time with you so you won’t feel rushed. Our certified nurse injector will evaluate your goals and give you an estimate of what it will take to accomplish the changes you would like to see. Our office manager will then meet with you separately to provide you with a cost estimate to ensure you are comfortable with the cost of treatment prior to proceeding, and without the added pressure of having the treating provider in the room while you are making your decision.
Treatment is generally very straightforward, and most of our clients are surprised at how little discomfort there is. All of our new clients will be scheduled for a two week follow up to ensure they are happy with their results, and to do more treatment if they desire a bit more change.

Dermal fillers are a natural way to replenish age related volume loss and stimulate underlying structural collagen formation. Dermal fillers gently plump and lift the skin, replacing the volume loss we all experience as a result of aging. They can also be used to fill wrinkles, lines, and scars. Certain types of dermal fillers can even stimulate your body’s underlying structural collagen production for longer-lasting results. Most of today’s dermal fillers are 100% natural.
What they Treat:
Hollow tear troughs, Hollow cheeks, Nasolabial folds, Marionette lines, Thin or asymmetrical lips, Certain types of depressed scars.
Approximately 30-45 minutes.
Typical Recovery Time & Side Effects:
- Redness and swelling typically lasting 1-3 days.
- Potential bruising, which can last for 7-10 days.
Most patients treated with dermal fillers should see immediate results, and depending on the type of filler used, results may be visible for six months up to two years following their initial treatment, depending on the type of filler and the treatment area.
How do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® & Restylane® are composed of a substance called hyaluronic acid which is a natural chemical found in every cell in your body. As dermal fillers are injected into the areas of your face that have lost volume, they smooth the appearance of any overlying mild to moderate wrinkles and also replace lost tissue volume. Dermal fillers replicate the body’s own hyaluronic production to provide fullness in the areas they are injected.
Other fillers, like Sculptra® or Radiesse®, use other natural substances to not only immediately fill wrinkles and other facial features, but also stimulate your body’s natural collagen production process to provide longer-lasting results.
