Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth, and cheeks look a little hollow. An Injectable Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

While an Injectable Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) is casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too!

Addressing your cosmetic concerns is easier than ever with the advanced, non-surgical treatments offered by our highly skilled medical professionals. We offer a broad selection of Injectable Dermal Fillers to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

There is a variety of FDA-approved Injectable Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) products that cosmetic surgeons use. In general, fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from. A note for your safety: always make sure that you are receiving FDA-approved, brand name fillers, which are only available through a licensed physician, such as a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

With so many Injectable Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern.

FACE FILLER FAQ

Face fillers (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. 

While a face filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) is casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues a Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) can help address:

  • Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
  • Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
  • Diminish vertical lip lines
  • Plump & enhance the lips
  • Smooth out a chin crease
  • Improve symmetry among facial features

There is a variety of FDA-Face filler products that cosmetic surgeons use. In general, fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
  • Poly-L-lactic Acid
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
  • Autologous Fat Injections (Facial Fat Grafting)

With so many face filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. While your provider will determine what product is best for you, the following diagram illustrates in general where cosmetic surgeons tend to apply certain products:

WHICH DERMAL FILLER?
WHICH FACE FILLER (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler)?

Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) injections are non-surgical and typically completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will meet with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss your concerns and goals.

If you are having fat injections, facial fat grafting is a surgical procedure and follows a different treatment protocol. Typically, fat grafting is performed as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Up to 2 weeks of downtime may be required, depending on the extent of liposuction performed. Your cosmetic surgeon will go over what to expect with surgery and recovery during your consultation.

How long the effects of a Face Filler (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) will last depends on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient. Generally speaking, the denser the product is and the more deeply it is injected, the longer it will last, although this is not a hard and fast rule. To maintain your results, your cosmetic surgeon will simply repeat treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.

Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the most temporary option, and therefore are often recommended for first-time filler patients. These will typically last from 6 to 18 months. Injections to the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds. Certain HA fillers, such as VOLUMA, are formulated to last longer but are usually limited to certain areas, such as the cheeks.

Synthetic fillers tend to last longer, as they are not absorbed by the body. They can be a great option for the right patient, but you’ll want to be ready to commit to results that will be there for several years—and choose an experienced, qualified provider whose aesthetic style you like.

Fat injections are meant to last indefinitely; however, some of the injected fat is expected not to survive. Initially, your cosmetic surgeon may overfill the treatment area, resulting in an initially fuller look that will gradually settle into a more natural appearance.

The procedure varies with the filler your dermatologist will use, the part of the body to be treated and your medical history. Here are some general guidelines about what you can expect:

  • Most Face Filler treatments take between 15 and 30 minutes and require one office visit.
  • Before getting the injections, you may need ice, an anesthetic applied to the skin, or a nerve block (an injection). This varies with the filler and area to be treated. Hands generally do not need anesthesia; lips often require a nerve block. 
  • Your dermatologist will inject the injectable Faace Filler into the area, often giving you several injections to produce the best results. 
  • You may feel a stinging or burning sensation as the injectable Face Filler is injected. 
  • A few fillers require allergy testing to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction. 
  • If you need allergy testing, you must wait for the results from the allergy test before you can get the filler. 
  • If your own fat will be used as a filler, the entire treatment can often be completed in one day. You will first have a procedure called tumescent liposuction, which safely removes a small amount of fat from another area of your body. The fat removed from your body is then processed so that it can be injected into the area that needs more fullness. 

Most patients can return to their everyday activities after leaving the office. 

To reduce any redness and swelling from the injections, your dermatologist may recommend icing the area for 15 to 20 minutes before you leave.

Before you leave the office, you should be able to apply makeup.

After leaving the office, you should”

  • Wait until the next day to exercise or do any other strenuous activity.
  • Stay out of the sun and do not use a tanning bed or other type of indoor tanning. 
  • Avoid touching the treated area for three days, unless you receive instructions to massage the area.
  • One filler, poly-L-lactic acid, requires you to gently massage the treated area for about 5 minutes several times a day for 1 to 2 weeks. Your dermatologist will tell you if you need to massage the area. 

This varies with the filler. Most Face Fillers (Facial Filler – Face Injection – Dermal Filler) do not cause downtime. Be sure to ask your dermatologist whether you will have downtime.

  • 5 star review  Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!
