What are Fillers?

Facial fillers are a gel-like substance made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your skin. When hyaluronic acid is mixed with collagen, it keeps the skin plump, hydrated and youthful. Also known as dermal fillers, they help lift, shape and refine features of the face and other areas of the body, minimizing the signs of aging. Facial fillers enhance the cheeks, midface, hide frown lines or downturned corners of the mouth, can treat tear troughs, back of hands and enhance lips and contour jawlines.

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid. This causes our skin strength, elasticity and fat volume to decrease, changing the shape and appearance of the face, which leads to sagging skin, folds, lines or wrinkles. Fillers add structure, volume and support to redefine your features bringing back a more youthful appearance.

Fillers FAQ

Dermal fillers help reduce the early signs of aging seen through a loss of facial volume. As a non-surgical procedure, the treatment provides instant results with little downtime. Fillers are customizable, allowing us to treat your specific area of concern, and keep you looking natural.

Lip fillers typically last between 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual's metabolism.

Under eye fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler and the individual's metabolism.
Cheek fillers can last between 12 to 24 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual's metabolism.
Facial fillers are injected using ultra-fine needles or cannulas (blunt tip needles) into various locations of treatment. The injection may be just below the surface of the skin or deeper into the facial tissue. Prior to the treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area. Fillers also contain a local anesthetic so there is instant numbing during the treatment. You may experience some swelling or minor bruising. Small ice packs are provided after the treatment to help with swelling.

Botox is a neuromodulator that relaxes muscles to smooth wrinkles, while fillers are gel-like substances that add volume and fullness or contour targeted areas, such as the lips, cheeks, jawline and under eyes.

Facial fillers are generally safe when administered by experienced and trained aesthetic providers, like our master injectors at Glow Dermspa. Additionally, we use FDA-approved fillers to ensure the highest quality and safety standards.

Fillers may cause some mild discomfort, but at Glow Dermspa, we offer multiple options for numbing the lips to minimize pain during the procedure. We consider our technique “painless lip filler.” Most patients find the treatment very tolerable.

Yes, fillers are temporary and will gradually dissolve over time. The duration depends on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle.

It depends. Since filler treatments can stimulate collagen production, the increase in lip volume may be noticeable for longer. The hyaluronic acid filler usually lasts the same length of time year after year.

At Glow Dermspa, we offer a variety of FDA-approved fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, RHA, Radiesse and Sculptra.

Prior to the treatment, you will discuss your goals with one of our experienced injectors. Based on your area of concern, the injector will select the product that best achieves the results you are looking for.
Yes! Dermal fillers benefit both men and women that are looking to reduce the signs of aging.
No, facial fillers are a temporary treatment. Your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid over time. Facial fillers last 9 months to 2+ years, depending on the filler that is used and the area being treated. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the ONLY completely dissolvable filler with a medicine called Hylenex, making it the safest among dermal fillers! We know that for any reason, we are able to inject Hylenex in attempt to dissolve or remove new or old filler.
Your injector may recommend limiting strenuous activity for the day of treatment depending on the filler and area. For cheek filler treatments, it is best to avoid a massage table or chiropractic table for 2 weeks following treatment. Bruising and minor swelling is likely following treatment and usually resolves within a week when using a bruise cream. Please allow 2-4 weeks prior to any special event to provide adequate time for bruising to resolve.
Swelling after lip fillers typically subsides within 48 to 72 hours but may last up to a week in some cases. Icing the area and keeping your head elevated can help reduce swelling.

It is advisable to wait at least 24 hours after getting lip fillers before engaging in any activities that may put pressure on your lips, such as kissing, to allow the filler to settle properly and avoid increasing swelling.

Yes, you can eat after getting lip fillers, but it's recommended to avoid hot or spicy foods for the first 24 hours, as they may increase swelling or discomfort. If you received a dental block prior to your treatment, it is recommended to use caution while eating for the first 2-4 hours after treatment until the numbness wears off.
Yes, you can smile after getting lip fillers, but you may experience some mild stiffness or discomfort for the first 24 to 48 hours.

Getting fillers while pregnant is not recommended, as the safety of dermal fillers during pregnancy has not been well-established.

It is not recommended to get fillers while breastfeeding, as there is limited research on the safety of dermal fillers during this time. Please consult with your doctor before undergoing any cosmetic treatments while breastfeeding.

It's best to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after getting fillers, as alcohol can increase the risk of bruising and swelling.

Avoid smoking for at least 24 hours after getting lip fillers, as smoking can slow down the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

How Fillers Work

Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into the skin to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, which can lead to a loss of volume and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Fillers counteract these signs of aging by adding volume to the targeted areas, such as the lips, cheeks, jawline, around the mouth and under eyes.

At Glow Dermspa, our experienced Master Injectors carefully select the most suitable type of filler for your specific needs, ensuring natural-looking and long-lasting results. Fillers not only address age-related concerns but can also be used to enhance facial features, such as creating fuller lips or more defined cheekbones and jawlines. This highly technical full face contouring is commonly referred to as facial balancing.

Learn more by reading our guide to understanding dermal fillers.

What to Expect

Your filler appointment at Glow Dermspa will begin with a thorough consultation, during which our experienced professionals will discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your facial features.

Once the treatment plan is customized to your needs, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the targeted area to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Our skilled Master Injectors will then carefully administer the filler using a fine needle or cannula, paying close attention to detail and symmetry for optimal results.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising, which is normal, to be expected, and will resolve over the next 5-7 days.. You’ll be provided with post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results. Most patients can resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 to 48 hours.
