Which Filler is Right for You?
Dermal filler treatments have become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States, second only to BOTOX® treatments.
Fillers can be used not only for treatment of facial wrinkles and folds, but also for more sophisticated applications of facial sculpting and contouring.
Dermal fillers vary in composition, duration, administration techniques and other factors, so selecting the appropriate filler is very important. The choice of filler depends on the area being treated, their treatment goals, and personal facial anatomy. We recommend booking a consultation to discuss what filler is best for you.
Will I look natural?
When fillers are used in the appropriate amount and placed in the right location, the result is a beautiful, natural, youthful outcome. Fillers are not meant to create totally different features. With an experienced, trained injector that has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy (like Dr. Zieber), the outcome simply enhances one’s own facial features.
Does it hurt?
Most experience only mild discomfort. A local anesthetic cream is applied to the skin prior to the treatment for a more comfortable experience. Many of our fillers are also formulated with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort.
How long do they last?
The effects are long lasting but not permanent. They last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on a number of factors including the patient’s age, area treated, type of filler used, quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.
What’s filler made of?
The most common fillers are made of a soft gel consisting of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a long thin molecule that naturally occurs in the human body and is one of the components of collagen in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps hydrate and adds volume to the skin. Dermal fillers consisting of hyaluronic acid include Juvederm®, Voluma®, Vollure®, and Volbella®.
