What are Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore volume loss due to aging or genetics. They can be used to build structure to the face, such as cheek bones, or fill volume deficits, such as in the lips. There are several brands of fillers, with 3 general types. Hyaluronic acid (like Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse), calcium based (Radiesse), or collagen stimulating (Sculptra). These fillers have their own unique benefits, are all biocompatible with the body, and safe to use for a large majority of people.

What to Expect with Fillers

During your filler appointment, your provider will first perform a consultation to discuss your treatment goals and a facial assessment will be done. If necessary, topical numbing will be applied for your comfort. Depending on how many areas are being treated, the injections themselves can take 15 minutes to about an hour. Results are seen immediately after treatment. However, it can take up to 2 weeks for “final” results to be seen. This is when the filler settles and any post-procedure related swelling or bruising has fully subsided. Follow ups are recommended 2 weeks after treatment to ensure the best results.
