What are fillers?
Fillers are cosmetic injections that restore volume under your skin. As you get older, the subcutaneous fat under your skin diminishes. The loss of fat causes your skin to sag and crease. It also allows the muscles to work closer to the surface of your skin, creating fine lines and wrinkles.
Fillers act as a replacement for this lost fat. They contain a gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally in your body. The aesthetic specialists at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics offer different types of fillers, including:
- Juvéderm® Ultra
- Restylane® Define
- Revanesse® Versa™
These fillers can plump up lips, replace lost volume, and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Am I a good candidate for fillers?
The aesthetic experts at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics determine if you’re a good candidate for fillers during your consultation.
To be considered a good candidate, you must be in good health and a nonsmoker. You also need to have realistic expectations and a commitment to taking good care of your skin after your treatment.
What happens during filler injections?
Your filler injections occur at the office and may take up to an hour, depending on the areas requiring treatment. You may experience some discomfort when receiving your injections.
If you have a low tolerance for pain, let your provider at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics know before you get started, so they can adjust your treatment plan.
You should see an improvement in your appearance immediately following your filler injections. It’s not unusual to experience some redness at the site of the injections, but these side effects disappear quickly. Downtime isn’t needed after fillers.
How long do fillers last?
How long your fillers last depends on the type of filler used for your cosmetic injection and the location. With daily use of sunblock and good skin care practices, it’s possible for your fillers to keep your face smooth and fresh for up to a year.
