Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers are substances your provider injects just beneath your skin to replace lost facial volume, reduce fine lines, and help you look and feel years younger. Examples of dermal fillers include:

  • Juvéderm products
  • Restylane products products
  • Belotero 
  • Radiesse
  • Sculptra®

Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, poly-l-lactic acid, polymethylmethacrylate, or calcium hydroxyapatite. Your practitioner lets you know which type of dermal filler is right for you.

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved, safe, and effective aesthetic procedures without surgery, cutting, or downtime. They help:

  • Reduced deep lines
  • Enhance cheek and lip volume
  • Reduce acne scars
  • Provide liquid face-lifts
  • Improve tear trough lines
  • Improve nasal contours
  • Smooth nose and mouth lines, or nasolabial folds
  • Diminish vertical lip lines, or lipstick lines”
  • Reduce chin dimpling
  • Improve facial symmetry

Both men and women can reap numerous aesthetic benefits from dermal filler injections.

What should I expect during filler treatment?

Prior to filler injections at Viva Wellness Medical Group, your practitioner reviews your medical history and examines your skin. They let you know if you’re a good candidate for fillers, another cosmetic procedure, or multiple treatments.

Your aesthetics specialist numbs the area to make the procedure feel comfortable. They inject filler substance just beneath your skin to achieve the desired results. 

During a five-minute nonsurgical nose job, they inject filler substances at strategic areas of your nose to improve its shape and contour.

What happens after the procedure?

You should notice immediate results after filler injections, with additional anti-aging improvements appearing over time. At the injection site, you may experience mild redness or swelling, but this is temporary. Apply ice to the area as needed.

Results from filler injections often last 6-24 months, depending on the type of product used. After that, periodic touch-up treatments help maintain your results long term.

In addition to dermal fillers, your practitioner might recommend Botox®, microneedling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a facial, or other cosmetic procedures to give you the best possible results. They offer quality skin care products, such as SkinMedica®, ZO® by Obagi, and Neocutis.
