As we grow up, we learn how to dress for our bodies. We learn how to enhance our waists, lengthen our bodies and flatter our assets. It’s the same with make-up. We learn to make our eyes seem larger, our noses smaller, our lips look fuller. In other words, we make the most of our natural features to ensure we’re feeling confident as we start each day.
Facial contouring uses the same principles, which is why it’s become increasingly popular in recent years. Put simply, it uses fillers to enhance the natural features of your face to give it a plump and youthful look. Fillers can help lift tissue, smooth skin and define your features.
AK Beautiful You is here to help you feel the best you can feel, every day. We’re Alaska’s leading medical spa, headed by Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Manuel, and Alaska’s top injector, Sara Dunlap, RN. We have more than 30 years of experience in the world of plastic surgery and know how to make injectable fillers work best for you.

There is nothing more beautiful than full, plump lips. Adding fillers can help contour the lower part of your face by enhancing your natural features. It’s also a helpful tool if you’re worried about the effects of aging, because our faces tend to lose volume over time.
There are several different types of fillers we recommend to help improve your appearance.
If you’re considering investing in lip injections, we recommend the Juvederm range. Juvederm is an injectable gel filler with a base of hyaluronic acid that effectively replaces volume loss in the face. It generally lasts between four and six months, and it’s very effective at plumping thin lips, as well as enhancing shallow contours, softening facial creases, decreasing wrinkles and improving the appearance of recessed scars.
We’re very proud to offer the Juverderm’s XC line, which alleviates much of the injection discomfort due to the incorporation of Lidocaine, which is a common local anesthetic.
Lip Fillers Cost
When you book a consultation with us, we will examine your unique facial characteristics and underlying bone structure and discuss your desired result before we recommend the right treatment options for you. This will include a thorough explanation of the different types of fillers available, the right dosage, possible side effects and any activity restrictions.
The exact cost of lip fillers will vary depending on the look you’re after, which product is right for you, and how many injections are required to achieve the desired effect. Request an appointment via our website to find out more about treatments and prices.

There is a lot you can do to hide dark circles, a hollow under-eye area and noticeable tear troughs with make-up. However, at some point, concealer won’t be able to cut it any more. Don’t worry, this is when the experienced team at AK Beautiful You can step in to help.
The number one reason we see dark circles under the eyes is volume loss in the tear trough. They tend to become more noticeable as we age. The good news is that there are two main ways to treat them: treating loss of cheek volume (which we’ll get to in a moment – keep scrolling if you’re interested in starting with face fillers), and treating the tear trough itself.
Tear Trough Fillers
Tear trough fillers work by levelling out the area under your eye and essentially diffusing the dark shadows. It’s a very effective treatment if you feel like you’re constantly looking tired, because by filling the hollow under your eye, it allows more light to hit this part of your face. The way tear trough fillers are administered has changed a lot in the last few years, which means fast results with minimal bruising. The best part is that results can last for YEARS.
The most important thing when you’re considering this type of treatment is to ensure the person administering the injection is fully-qualified, like the team at AK Beautiful You.

This lovely lady came back to have her tear troughs filled again five years later! (Yes tear troughs can last that long!) She had bruised when she had them done last time and was worried about bruising again. Well there have been a lot of changes in the industry and my practice in the last 5 years. I use a cannula for most of my tear trough fillers, which means one poke per side in an area that very rarely bruises. If you look closely you can see a little redness where I inserted the cannula. #botoxalaska #botoxanchorage #volbella #volbellaalaska #anchoragefillers #itstheinjectornotthesyringe #nurseinjector #advancedinjector

Just a touch of filler in the tear troughs can really brighten up the eyes. The filler was placed using a cannula to decrease the risk of bruising and increase comfort. Only one poke per side (notice redness on cheeks). #teartroughcorrection #volbellaanchorage #botoxanchorage #juvedermalaska #volbellateartroughs #advancedinjector #alaskabeauty #anchoragemedspa #alaskamedspa

Cheek fillers can provide an instant lift to your face. It can be done for anti-ageing purposes, of course, as the natural fat that exists in your cheeks begins to flatten and droop. However, it’s also a very valuable tool when it comes to facial contouring. Cheek fillers are a simple way to tweak the proportions of your face to maximize your natural look, because fuller cheeks can smooth the texture of your skin and minimize the appearance of eye bags.
Cheek Filler Cost
The amount of dermal filler you need will vary from person to person, so the best way to determine the cost is to request an appointment with AK Beautiful You. Our experienced staff will examine your facial characteristics and bone structure to determine how we can best help you achieve your desired effect and how much this treatment will cost.

Just one syringe of Voluma in the mid face for this beauty. The filler was placed on the cheekbone to volumize the mid face and lift the lower face. Notice the nasolabial fold and corner of the mouth are both lifted. 💉💉💉 #voluma #midfacefiller #juvedermalaska #volumaanchorage #botoxanchorage #alaskabeauty
