Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of your skin by filling in wrinkles and loose or sagging skin. There are several different types of dermal fillers available from which to choose, and your beauty expert provides a consultation during which time she talks to you about your skin concerns and studies your skin before making a recommendation. In most cases, you can have your filler treatment on the same day as your consultation.

Fillers are made of different chemicals, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other compounds that mimic collagen in your skin.

What should I expect during my dermal filler appointment?

Your beauty expert asks questions about your skin concerns and examines your skin carefully. If a dermal filler is the best option to improve the appearance of your skin, she’ll carefully cleanse your face and prepare to make the injections.

The injections take between 20-40 minutes, depending on how many injections are needed. Your aesthetician will work quickly, but carefully, stopping frequently to examine her work and gently massage filler into place.

After your treatment is complete, you can go right back to your normal activities, although you should avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for 24 hours following your filler injections.

How should I take care of my skin after I have filler injections?

You should take care to avoid the sun and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen or wide-brimmed hat. When you wash and moisturize your face, do so gently, and pat to dry instead of rub. Your aesthetician gives you specific instructions on taking care of your skin with fillers and advice on when you’ll need a touch-up appointment.
