Injected fillers are primarily used to improve the appearance of the skin texture. It can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, skin depressions and some types of scars. It can also be used to give a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips. Fillers are not usually sufficient for severe surface wrinkles on the face, such as multiple vertical “lipstick lines” that sometimes form around the mouth.
The Fillers Procedure
The fillers are injected using a fine needle inserted at several points along the edge of the site. Overfilling is necessary to allow for absorption in the weeks following treatment. You may feel a slight stinging or burning as the site is injected. However, most people report the injections to be of only minor discomfort.
After Fillers Treatment
Most patients resume normal activities following treatment in spite of some temporary puffiness over the area. Generally, within a few days this will resolve and the material is no longer visibly distinguishable from the surrounding skin.
Results of Fillers Injections
The results of your fillers injection will vary for each individual as will the length of time it will last. Some patients have reported their treatment lasting a year or longer, while others report a duration of only 3-6 months. Therefore, repeated injections may be necessary. We will discuss with you how to maintain your results with repeated treatments.
Can the augmentation be made permanent?
The results obtained from fillers treatment can be made permanent by injecting your own fat or augmenting using your own tissue. The results thus obtained do sustain for 5-10 years with small touch-ups required at a later date.
