What can fillers do for me?

There are many different fillers available, which allows us to tailor your treatment to what you’re looking for. If you want more volume in your cheeks, there is a filler designed for just that. If you want to smooth out wrinkles, there are fillers designed to add a layer of plumpness to your skin. Fillers can even be used to treat certain cosmetic issues in the nose, add youth to your hands, and more.

How often will I need to come back for more?

To keep it simple, it all depends on what fillers you get, and the location of placement.

The Type of Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers add volume to cheeks and lips, and they also help minimize smile lines and other wrinkles. Many fillers use Hyaluronic acid, and how long they last will vary depending on which you use. Generally, expect results to last from 6 to 24 months.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite increases collagen in the skin, giving a new plumpness to the skin.
It is often used to increase volume of the cheeks and reduce the prominence of nasolabial folds. This filler can last from 12 to 18 months.

Poly-L- lactic acid fillers also stimulate collagen production to add volume and plumpness to skin. This filler takes more appointments, and most patients require 3-4 separate injections, spaced around 4 weeks apart. This filler is best for subtle, natural results to help with anti-aging efforts. Results can last more than 2 years, so that could be completely worth it!
