What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, also called facial fillers, are injectable rejuvenation and facial enhancements. Fillers are injected precisely into targeted areas to replace lost volume, plump the lips, contour facial features, and smooth away wrinkles. Fillers are often used to rejuvenate the appearance, while younger patients enjoy the results of fillers because they help achieve higher, sculpted cheekbones, a defined jawline, and other enhancements.
We provide customized facial filler treatments at Total Skin using a variety of safe, FDA-approved fillers. Our injectors are trained and experienced, achieving natural-looking results for both men and women.
 

 

What are the benefits of treatment with Fillers?

Dermal fillers can go way beyond just minimizing wrinkles, lines, and creases. They can actually help to combat age-related fat volume loss in the cheeks, temples, lips, and eye areas.
Benefits of dermal fillers include the following:
   * A personalized treatment plan.
   * An injection session takes an hour or less.
   * Because fillers are infused with lidocaine, there is little discomfort. If you have very   
      sensitive skin, topical anesthetic can also be applied.
   * Little or no downtime. Most people return to work and other activities right away.
   * Negligible risk of side effects. You may experience slight redness, bruising, or swelling at 
      injection sites. However, it resolves within a few days, and can be camouflaged with       
      makeup.
   * Improvement is immediate and continues as internal hydration and collagen build.
   * Results last several months to a year or more.
   * Volume loss in backs of hands can be addressed, too.
 

Am I a candidate for Fillers?

Dermal fillers can go way beyond just minimizing wrinkles, lines and creases. They can actually help to combat age-related fat volume loss in the cheeks, temples, lips and eye areas.

You are an excellent candidate for dermal fillers if you struggle with any of the following:

   * Forehead furrows

   * Glabellar folds

   * Marionette lines

   * Nasolabial folds

   * Lip lines

   * Loss of volume

 

Many dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid and other compounds found naturally in the human body, making the likelihood of an allergic reaction extremely rare. However, it is still important to attend a private consultation with our providers to make sure our approach is the best strategy for achieving your desired results.

What type of Dermal Fillers do you offer?

These smooth gels vary in thickness, and the depth of injection is tailored.
  -  Soft, thin fillers smooth fine lines and wrinkles where the skin is delicate, such as around 
     lips and eyes.
  -  Medium fillers soften wrinkles on the lower half of the face.
  -  Thick fillers are placed deeper to fill hollows at the temples and lift apples of the cheeks.
Depending on the specific chemical formulation, fillers integrate with skin to hold hydration and stimulate collagen production.

Is there any recovery or downtime?

There is little to no downtime after your cosmetic injections, and there is very little recovery to worry about, if any. The most common side effects occur around the injection site. They tend to be mild and typically last 2 weeks, or less. These include:
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Bruising
  • Itching
 
All skin injections carry some risk of allergic reaction, infection, and other more severe side effects, but these are rare. Your provider will discuss all of the risks and answer any questions you have before your first treatment.

Facial Fillers FAQ's

What is the difference between dermal fillers and Botox?

Botox is designed to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. Dermal fillers fill sagging skin, and plump and sculpt the facial features.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

The cost of dermal fillers depends on the type of filler you require, where the treatment area is, and how much of the filler you need to achieve your aesthetic goals.

How long will my facial filler results last?

How long the results last depends on the type of filler you have. Dermal fillers usually last between 6-18 months, but some dermal fillers can last for years.

How long should I wait to touch up fillers?

This varies, but patients can schedule touch-ups every 4-12 months.

Can fillers make you age faster?

Generally, no. However, if certain non HA-based fillers are overused, they can stretch out the skin over time.
