One of the first places we begin to show our age is in the lips. Wrinkles often appear, extending vertically from the mouth, or our lips may start to look deflated. At Timeless, our medical staff can correct this in minutes with injectable Volbella treatments.
Many boutique shops, dentists and surgical offices offer this treatment—Timeless Skin Solutions is in a class of its own, as one of the few injectors in Central Ohio specializing exclusively in non-surgical techniques to improve skin and facial contouring.

View our Filler Before & After Treatment Instructions.
A typical appointment lasts about 30 minutes. The procedure itself lasts 15 minutes on average, but your medical provider will want to spend time discussing your desired outcomes, as well as what you should expect in the days following treatment.
You can feel secure knowing that you will be injected by highly trained physicians, nurse practitioners or registered nurses, all of whom have been selected and trained by our founder and medical director.
All of the products in the JUVÉDERM® collection are injectable treatments. You will experience some minor, brief discomfort at the moment of injection. Timeless ensures comfort at every step by employing specialized techniques before, during and after your treatment.
Yes, when administered by experienced medical professionals who have a clear understanding of your medical history. We choose to use hyaluronic acid fillers because of their low side effect profile. While we expect that you will love your results, patients can be reassured knowing that once injected, the filler can be dissolved as desired via a simple medical procedure.
In just minutes, a medical professional uses a tiny needle to inject hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. They place it in areas of volume loss, use it to lift sagging skin, and fill in lines and wrinkles. Once the filler is injected, patients may be able to detect lumps and bumps under the skin in the treatment area. This is perfectly normal and typically not visible on the surface of the skin. Over the next several weeks, the hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler will bond with the surrounding tissue resulting in a smoother feel.
In general, filler is an instant gratification treatment. When you leave the office you will see about 80% improvement, and over the course of 2-4 weeks, the filler will bond to the tissue around it and reveal the final result.
Juvederm Volbella is FDA-approved to last about one year. There is an enzyme in our body that naturally breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules in filler over time, which is why it doesn’t last forever. Also, the filler may break down faster in areas that we move more, like the mouth.
With any injectable there is a chance that you may experience minor swelling and bruising for up to two weeks. This is not typically something that will require you to take off work or change your lifestyle, but you may want to strategically schedule the appointment if you have any major upcoming event. If there is swelling, it typically peaks at approximately 48 hours and diminishes over the next several days. There are pre and post treatment instructions that when adhered to, will decrease the instances of swelling and bruising or shorten them in duration.
Yes! Filler is like a jump start for collagen production. With continued use, your skin’s own collagen production will increase.
Treatments are highly customized based on person. For the most accurate quote we recommend sitting down with one of our medical professionals to talk about your desired outcome. The cost of Volbella is $450 per syringe, and multiple syringes may be needed to achieve best results.
Filler is a great option for the majority of people. If you have allergies to lidocaine, are taking blood thinners or have any other health conditions including pregnancy, we recommend discussing this with our medical team at the time of your consultation.
XC is used in the name of certain fillers to indicate if the filler contains a very small amount of lidocaine, which is a type of anesthetic used to increase comfort at the time of injection. If you are allergic to this medication, we have fillers available without lidocaine for use at any time.
The following medical-grade products will help to prolong, encourage, and promote the life of your treatments.
SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator: This topical, hyaluronic acid product works in the same way as a dermal filler, encouraging your body’s natural collagen to rebuild itself. HA5 contains five forms of hyaluronic acid, a water-loving protein that helps to maintain the skin’s moisture, elasticity and resilience. HA5 is different from a moisturizer because it penetrates deeper into the epidermis rather than sitting on the top of the skin. This enhances your filler results.
SkinMedica Hydrating Complex: For an added boost, this lightweight serum is shown to enhance the benefits of a daily moisturizer. Hydrating Complex contains Sodium Hyaluronate, a derivative of hyaluronic acid which can retain up to 40 times its weight in water, to help replenish the skin’s moisture reservoir and further plump the skin.
SkinMedica TNS Illuminating Eye Cream: This lightweight cream nourishes and strengthens the delicate eye area to amplify the results of filler for dark circles and bags under the eyes. A formula of growth factors, peptides and other anti-aging ingredients help repair, brighten the skin around the eyes and further minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles.
Obagi Elastiderm Eye Complete Complex Serum: This serum helps to replenish elasticity and support collagen for tighter, smoother-looking skin. It also helps stimulate the production of healthy skin cells and contains caffeine to improve the appearance of under-eye puffiness. Available in office.
SkinMedica HA5 Smooth & Plump Lip System: After plumping the lips with Juvéderm Volbella, continue to treat the delicate skin topically and on a daily basis. This two-step system smooths fine lines around the lips while further plumping their appearance, enhancing definition and your bringing out your lips’ natural rosiness.

Juvéderm Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, that acts as a nutrient to keep our skin moist, smooth, and elastic. Our bodies are constantly losing and replacing this substance throughout the day, though as we age, we no longer produce enough to keep up with the loss. Injectable fillers not only plump up, hydrate and fill where volume has been lost, but also encourages the body’s own natural collagen production to increase. Juvéderm Volbella employs specialized Vycross™ technology which links two chains of hyaluronic acid together allowing for greater product duration, and this also means that the injectable gel has a greater viscosity and thus a greater capacity to lift.
