Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that offers a way to restore lost volume in the face. Part of the aging process involves losing some subdermal fat. 

Combined with your skin’s increasing laxity, volume loss contributes to wrinkles, sunken areas, and crepey skin. With fillers, you can boost volume in targeted areas for months or years at a time.

As with other cosmetic injectables, fillers are safe to get regularly. When you notice your results beginning to diminish, you can contact Access Dermatology Clinic for another appointment. 

Otherwise, you can schedule regular visits to Access Dermatology Clinic once you have an idea of how long skin fillers last for you. 

You can get fillers on their own or as part of a complete treatment plan including other cosmetic procedures. Botox® and fillers aren’t the same but work well together to create a more youthful appearance. 

What can fillers do?

During the initial consultation at Access Dermatology Clinic, the team reviews your goals and talks about your medical history.

They perform treatments with dermal fillers professionally and prioritize your safety throughout the process. To provide natural-looking results, they build up the volume with small doses of filler. 

Using the dermal fillers available at Access Dermatology Clinic, you can:

  • Plump or reshape your lips
  • Plump your cheeks
  • Decrease a lower lid shadow
  • Soften medium to large wrinkles
  • Soften recessed scars
  • Improve overall facial symmetry

After understanding your goals, the team at Access Dermatology Clinic visualizes your results and maps out where to place each filler injection. The ingredients in fillers vary, but most are designed to mimic the appearance of soft tissue beneath the skin. 

What should I expect while getting fillers?

After assessing your facial contours and mapping the injection points, the team at Access Dermatology Clinic cleans the injection sites and offers a numbing agent. 

Some numbing options are topical products while others are injectable. Ice is another option. The team discusses these options with you ahead of time. 

The injections only take a few minutes. The team is careful to assess the result of each injection and make sure everything is symmetrical and even. Following the injections, they give you an ice pack to ease swelling.

You can go back to most of your daily activities right away after getting fillers at Access Dermatology Clinic. You might experience a little discomfort or pressure, but it only lasts for a couple of days and isn’t severe. 

Fillers give you the option to refine your facial contours or make your face more symmetrical. To learn more about what they can do, call Access Dermatology Clinic or schedule an appointment online today.
