What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, are non-surgical treatments designed to restore volume, soften wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They are typically composed of safe and biocompatible substances, such as hyaluronic acid (HA) or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), naturally found in the body. Juvéderm, Sculptra, and Restylane are three brands offering a range of formulations to address various concerns. 

Benefits of Facial Fillers

These are some of the benefits of opting for facial fillers:

  • Facial fillers offer a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures, allowing individuals to achieve facial rejuvenation without the risks and recovery associated with surgery.
  • Each filler brand and formulation are designed to address specific concerns, ensuring that patients receive tailored treatments that cater to their unique needs.
  • Facial fillers can produce natural-looking results.
  • Sculptra, in particular, provides gradual improvements by stimulating the body's own collagen production, resulting in a more subtle and sustained transformation.

What should I expect?

Typically taking less than an hour, the facial filler procedure involves the skillful injection of your chosen filler into targeted areas using ultrafine needles. While minor discomfort may arise, the lidocaine in many filler formulations significantly reduces potential pain for a more comfortable overall experience. As the treatment progresses, you can witness the transformation unfold in real time so that you can see the enhancements as the changes in your facial contours.

What is the recovery process like?

Following your facial filler treatment, some patients might experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites, but these effects generally subside within a few days. Cold compresses and avoiding strenuous activities can help expedite the healing process. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure. The results of facial fillers are often noticeable immediately after the treatment and will improve further over the following days as any initial swelling subsides. The longevity of your results will vary depending on the type of filler used. Juvéderm and Restylane fillers typically offer results that last from six months to a year. Sculptra, due to its unique mechanism of stimulating collagen production, may provide results that last for up to two years. Periodic touch-up sessions are often recommended to maintain the desired effect.
