Facial Filler Questions

What is a filler?
Filler products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines); lipstick lines (the area just below the nose and above the upper lip); the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline).

How often should I be treated?
Most fillers usually can last 9 to 12 months (results vary on each individual).

When will I see results?
Fillers instantly add volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment.

How much filler will I need for full correction?
Due to the individual needs of each patient, it is important to discuss your full correction with your Doctor.

What should I tell my Doctor before having a filler treatment?
You should tell your healthcare professional if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores. He or she may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence. You should also tell him or her if you have recently used aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

What are some of the common side effects?
After your treatment, you may have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days
