There may be some swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should fade within a few short days. Typical results can last from a few months to a year, depending on the product and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.
Injectable Dermal Fillers FAQ
How much do injectable fillers cost?
The cost of a wrinkle filler will vary based on the brand of filler and the amount used. In your initial consult, your injector will develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and wants. Then, we will also give you a cost estimate for your treatment and discuss any specials we have.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The injectable filler chosen for your treatment will be based on which area(s) is being treated and your wanted outcome. Depending on if you want to improve wrinkles or are wanting to get fuller, plumper lips, we will ask about your concerns before suggesting the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. With so many different brands of fillers on the market, it may be difficult to choose which is the best for you, so we work hard to make sure you get a natural-looking, rejuvenated look.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX®, addresses fine lines and wrinkles (mostly on the brow and in the corners of the eyes) by reducing the movement of the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers add volume to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and certain types of scars. Dermal fillers may also be used to add more volume to your cheeks and lips plus to rejuvenate the hands.
How long will the results last?
How long your results last will depend on the type of filler used and what area was treated. For some patients, results may last as long as one year, whereas others may need a repeat treatment after a few months. Touch-up treatments can be scheduled at our practice in order to maintain your improvements.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers can improve signs of aging in your face by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be injected into mild to moderate marionette, parentheses, and fine lines around your mouth and nose. Also, they can temporarily add volume to your cheeks and lips.
Make Wrinkles Disappear
If you are suffering from sagging or hollow features but are intimidated by the thought of major surgery, then dermal fillers may be the perfect solution for you. Fillers create youthful, voluminous skin without major risks or the threat of scarring. Dermal fillers can also be added to other cosmetic procedures to provide the benefits of a traditional facelift without the need for surgery, the presence of scars, and the associated downtime that follows.
