|What are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are an injectable gel that can help fill in lines and creases that we have in our faces.
Are there different types of dermal fillers?
There are many different brands on the market, some better than others. At our clinic, we favor Juvederm® and Restylane® products as well as Redensity®, but there are others we use as well. Your injector will let you know what product they recommend to achieve the best result.
How long do dermal fillers last?
What areas of the face are treated with dermal fillers?
What can I expect after my treatment with dermal fillers?
Is there anything I need to know before coming in for my BOTOX COSMETIC® or Dysport® and Filler treatment?
Yes! People coming in for facial injections NEED to know a few things before having treatment. WE WILL NOT INJECT YOU IF YOU HAVE A COLD SORE. If you are prone to getting cold sores, it is important that you tell your injector during your consultation. There is a medication you must take before being injected. Also, AVOID BLOOD THINNERS starting 10 days before your treatment with dermal fillers to reduce the risk of bruising. For your convenience, here is a list of items to avoid:
