What are Fillers?

Cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are injectable substances used to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They typically contain hyaluronic acid or collagen, plumping the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Fillers can also be used to augment lips and cheeks, providing a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

How do you prepare for Fillers?

Preparing for cosmetic fillers involves consulting a qualified practitioner to discuss treatment goals and medical history. Patients may be advised to avoid blood-thinning medications and alcohol before the procedure. Additionally, it’s essential to inform the provider of any allergies or sensitivities. Following pre-treatment instructions ensures optimal results and minimizes risks.

Why are Fillers performed?

Cosmetic fillers are performed to address signs of aging by restoring lost volume, smoothing wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours. They provide a non-surgical solution for achieving a more youthful appearance, plumping areas like lips and cheeks, and rejuvenating the overall look with natural-looking results.

What can you expect during a Fillers procedure?

During a fillers procedure, the skin is cleansed, and the filler is injected using a fine needle or cannula. Patients may feel a slight prick or pressure, but discomfort is minimal. The injector may massage the area to ensure even distribution. Results are immediate, with minor swelling or redness subsiding shortly after the treatment.

What is the followup and recovery like for Fillers?

After cosmetic fillers, follow-up typically involves monitoring for any adverse reactions and providing post-procedure instructions. Recovery is minimal, with most patients able to resume normal activities immediately. Some swelling or bruising may occur but usually resolves within a few days. Results typically last several months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual metabolism.

What are the potential costs for Fillers?

The cost of cosmetic fillers varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used, the amount required, and the practitioner’s expertise. On average, fillers can range from $500 to $2,000 per syringe, with additional costs for multiple syringes or touch-up sessions. Prices may also vary based on geographic location and clinic reputation. (WILL NEED TO FOLLOW UP WITH FRONT DESK FOR EXACT PRICING DETAILS)
