What is filler?
Facial fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. The use of fillers can eliminate wrinkles, plump and hydrate lips, replace soft-tissue volume loss, raise scar depressions, and volumise creases and folds of the face.
As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to such damage through facial injections.
When will I see results?
Results are visible immediately after your treatment. The healing process then begins which involves swelling for about 3-7 days depending on the area and amount injected and how your body reacts to the procedure.
The product then settles and you’ll enjoy your final results about 2-3 weeks after treatment. Please give yourself a minimum of 2 weeks before any events or holidays in case of residual bruising and swelling.
How long do results last?
Longevity differs from person to person and from treatment to treatment. Because the product is being injected into the body, some bodies may metabolize the product faster than others. See below for average longevity based on treatment:
Cheek Filler: 9-18 months
Lip Filler: 6-12 months
Lower Face Filler: 9-18 months
Jawline Filler: 9-18 months
Chin Augmentation: 9-18 months
Nasolabial Fold (Smile/Laugh Lines) Filler: 6-12 months
How may treatments will I need?
Facial fillers are a temporary solution, and therefore to maintain results, treatments will need to be administered on a recurring basis or depending on desired results (see longevity info above).
Will I need time to recover?
Bruising is possible, plan 2 weeks ahead of any special events or holidays.
