Fillers Q&A

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are an injectable cosmetic procedure many people receive to regain volume to the face. Fillers have been around for decades and are proven to enhance your appearance for years to come. 

Depending on the specific treatment area, different types of fillers achieve different results. For example, fillers like Juvederm® absorb more moisture and work excellently on the lips to give a plump appearance. In contrast, other fillers that don’t absorb as much moisture work beautifully under the eyes. 

What are fillers made of?

Various products are available on the market, and your specialist can recommend a specific one depending on the result you’d like to achieve. Dermal fillers come in many materials, such as hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, and even fat tissue. Botox is another fantastic way to smooth facial lines and is produced by special bacteria.

Your wellness expert can provide details and instructions on what type and how much filler you should get. Dermal fillers are also FDA-approved and can be administered into the face safely and without worry. 

How can fillers enhance my appearance?

Fillers have a large variety of uses with seemingly endless possibilities. Common injection sites for fillers and Botox include

  • Lips for fullness and definition
  • Cheeks to restore volume
  • Lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and forehead
  • Chin to fix a crease
  • Under the eyes to help you look refreshed

Additionally, fillers and Botox can improve your overall facial symmetry. If there’s a unique area on your face that would benefit from fillers, the wellness specialists can help guide you through your options.

What can I expect during my appointment for dermal fillers?

During your initial consultation, a specialist reviews your medical history alongside any aesthetic concerns you may have. Injectable fillers and Botox come with very minimal risk, but it’s important to disclose any relevant medical information, like allergies and the use of NSAIDs, to avoid complications.

Your provider then cleans the treatment area and applies a local numbing agent to make the procedure as painless as possible. Many injectable fillers already contain a mild anesthetic to help streamline the procedure. The expert then carefully administers the filler. You should notice results immediately and can continue daily activities in most cases.
