All about filler!

As time passes, our skin begins to lose volume and elasticity. Sun damage and repetitive muscle movement are a few factors leading to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Dermal fillers are an excellent option to replenish lost volume and revive your skin’s youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers use a hyaluronic acid (HA) base. Hyaluronic acid filler replicates a naturally-occurring molecule found in the body. HA is known for its unique ability to hold 1,000 times its water weight, resulting in deep hydration and plumping. Dermal fillers can replenish lost volume, define facial features, and improve signs of aging. 

At Skin + Aesthetics, we use fillers to:
+ Smooth lines around the nose and mouth (smile lines, marionette lines, and parentheses).
+ Restore lost volume to the cheeks, temples, and under the eyes.
+ Soften lip lines.
+ Plump and hydrate the lips.
+ Define the jawline.
+ Improve symmetry in facial features.
+ Raise scar depressions, diminishing their appearance. 

During your dermal filler consultation, your injector will discuss a course of treatment for your specific concerns and plan how to best achieve your aesthetic goals. Our filler prices begin at $425 for a half syringe and $700 for one syringe. Due to the time required and advanced skill, tear trough filler is $900. For full face rejuvenation, we offer packaged pricing with additional savings that will be discussed at your consultation.  Click ‘Schedule Now’ to schedule your dermal filler appointment with Skin + Aesthetics!

Skin + Aesthetics proudly carries Galderma's Restylane brand dermal fillers. As we have said, we strive to choose the most tried and true products there are to keep our patients safe, while also providing excellent results. Restylane itself was the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler in the US and has been around since 2003, and we find it to be simply timeless. We have personally seen the results of Restylane since 2014 and feel confident in the results and safety. 

We carry the entire Restylane portfolio of dermal fillers including Restylane-L, Lyft, Refyne, Defyne, Kysse, Contour, and Silk to ensure we have a solution for every concern.

01. WHAT FILLER BRANDS DO YOU CARRY?

While there are different options for what dermal fillers are made of in the United States, S+A carries dermal fillers that are composed of a gel-like substance with a hyaluronic acid (HA) base. Fillers are strategically injected to achieve your specific aesthetic goals. Dermal fillers are semi-permanent and can last approximately six to twelve months or longer depending on the type of filler chosen and the location of where it is injected. The body will metabolize and break down the filler over time. Maintenance appointments are needed.

02. How does filler work?

At S+A, we don't believe that no pain is no gain! At your appointment, the treatment area will be cleansed and we will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection. Your injector will then distribute the dermal filler into the treatment area with a needle or cannula. Most patients report that filler injections feel similar to a firm pinch. The pain will dissipate quickly. Swelling, light bruising, and tenderness are normal and to be expected.

03. is filler painful?

Dermal filler results are immediate! Swelling will occur within minutes, so it is important to know that your immediate results will not be your final results; however, you'll see the final results after about two weeks when the swelling has subsided. Maintenance or "touch-up" injections are required every six to twelve months to preserve the results of your filler injections.

04. when will i see results?

Please note that all before + after care will be delivered in your patient portal and to your email, so please read this prior to your appointment.
