Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Facial fillers are injectable treatments that minimize the appearance of wrinkles. There are many different types of fillers, including dermal fillers and neuromodulators, depending on your level of skin laxity.

After an initial consultation, The Center for Aesthetics team can determine which type of filler is right for you.


What areas of the face can fillers treat?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that the team injects underneath the skin to fill in wrinkles and deep creases. The Center for Aesthetics offers a variety of dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and fill in deep creases.

The team uses dermal fillers to treat static fillers, which result from volume loss and skin laxity. If you have deep nasolabial folds or saggy skin around your jawline (jowls), dermal fillers can help plump up your skin.


What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This type of filler injection works to correct shallow to deep nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles.

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This type of filler injection works to correct shallow to deep nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles.

Sculptra also increases your skin's collagen production. It's FDA-approved to restore facial volume, giving you the younger-looking appearance you deserve.


How long do fillers last?

While most dermal fillers last about 6-12 months, some continue to work for up to five years. How long your dermal filler lasts depends on the tone and elasticity of your skin.

Dermal fillers are nonsurgical treatments that produce the best results when you return to The Center for Aesthetics for maintenance treatments. Your provider works with you to customize a treatment plan for your needs.

Regular maintenance treatments not only minimize existing wrinkles but also keep your skin firm enough to prevent new creases from forming.


What are the side effects of fillers?

Thanks to their nonsurgical nature, dermal fillers typically require no downtime after treatment. While you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness following your injection, these side effects should subside over the next few days.

Fillers are safe, effective treatments for wrinkles and saggy skin. To learn more about fillers and if they're right for you, call The Center for Aesthetics or book an appointment online today.
