Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers are injectable medications used to fill in areas where your skin is sagging or wrinkled. Fillers contain pharmaceutical-grade ingredients — including hyaluronic acid — which help to restore fullness, volume and a youthful appearance to your skin.

Compared to plastic surgery, fillers provide a quick and easy way to improve your appearance without the risk of major side effects or a lengthy recovery period. They can also be used in conjunction with other injectables, like neuromodulators such as BOTOX® , DYPSORT® and XEOMIN®, and other cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels and microneedling, to help you create a customized aesthetic treatment plan.

Where can fillers be used?

Fillers can be used in a variety of areas where you’re having sagging and wrinkles, including the:

  • Cheeks
  • Under eye area
  • Laugh lines around the nose and mouth
  • Lips
  • Back of the hands
  • Smile lines
  • Chin
  • Between the eyebrows

There are different types of fillers that address different areas on the face, in order to smooth your skin, add softness and volume, and restore the youthful firmness lost with aging.

What can I expect after getting fillers?

Getting fillers is a simple and quick procedure that typically lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. With a few small injections in your trouble areas, you should notice an immediate difference in the fullness and firmness of your face.

Though minor redness is possible for a few hours following treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away and don’t need to take any special precautions. Fillers generally last six months to a year and can be touched up by Dr. Rodney as needed to maintain your results.
