What are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers are a class of substances that can temporarily restore plumpness to areas that typically lose volume over time (such as cheeks!), add fullness to slim or thinning lips, and help smooth deep set “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth. Basically, it complements some of the features that make for a gorgeous smile (a chic lipstick and teeth whitening, you’ll need to take care of on your own).
Injectable Fillers FAQS
Are injectable fillers right for me?
If you are concerned about a loss of facial volume or deepening facial lines, injectable fillers can be a treatment option. Since they are administered through a measured syringe, the amount of injectable filler can be adjusted to meet your desired level of volume. Consult with a licensed provider to learn how injectable fillers can help restore volume to your facial features.
How do fillers work?
Injectable fillers are made from a range of different substances, but the primary ingredient in most injectable fillers is a modified version of hyaluronic acid, a water-loving molecule found naturally in the skin. This molecule is the backbone of many soft, gel-like injectable fillers, which are injected under the skin to give cheek hollows, lips, and deep facial wrinkles a plumping boost.
How long do fillers last?
Injectable fillers can last anywhere from six months up to two years. How long dermal fillers last can depend on your health history, injector technique, product injected, and area of the face treated.
What outcome can I expect after the treatment?
You will see some results of your injectable filler treatment immediately, with final results being visible within about two weeks.
Do fillers hurt?
Topical numbing cream can help minimize pain from the needle insertion, along with the lidocaine that is added to most injectable fillers.
