Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

A filler, often called a dermal filler, is an injectable solution that adds volume and shape to problem areas of the face. Fillers erase fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping skin, and add a plump appearance to the lips. There are different types of fillers that all deliver similar results. Many are made from hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps provide volume to the skin.

Fillers provide results that usually last a few months to a year, depending on your skin type, lifestyle, age, and more. With positive skincare habits, fillers will last longer and provide you with extremely supple and healthy looking skin.

What happens during my appointment?

After you have an initial skincare assessment discussing your needs and goals, you come to the office for a short visit. Fillers only take about 10-20 minutes to administer, depending on the number and size of the areas needing treatment.

Your practitioner first cleanses the treatment area and injects the solution under your skin. Most patients don’t experience any pain, but you might notice slight redness, swelling, or sensitivity of the area for several hours after your appointment. For the first 24 hours, it’s a good idea to refrain from strenuous activities or excessive sun or heat exposure.

What are the benefits of fillers?

If you’re looking to transform your face without an invasive procedure, fillers are the perfect solution. Unlike chemical peels, laser treatments, or other treatment options, fillers are fast, painless, and don’t require any downtime. They provide immediate results that last several months, and with maintenance treatments, you can sustain your look and have youthful skin.

When you have fillers injected by an expert, you’re guaranteed to get beautiful, safe results with no complications or side effects. At North County Dermatology Clinic, you can schedule a consultation about your skincare needs. Each patient gets a customized treatment session to ensure optimal results.
