Fillers Q & A
What are fillers?
Fillers are a minimally invasive cosmetic injection that adds volume under your skin to enhance your features and reduce the signs of aging. Dr. Dimowo is an aesthetic expert and offers many brands of fillers to meet your specific aesthetic needs, including:
Juvéderm® (Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Voluma® XC)
Each type of filler contains hyaluronic acid, which is a gel-like substance naturally found in your body. Dr. Dimowo determines the type of filler that’s best for you based on your aesthetic goals.
What are some common uses for fillers?
Fillers are used to improving many common beauty concerns. Dr. Dimowo may recommend fillers to:
Fill in lines, wrinkles, or recessed scars
Add volume to thin lips
Enhance the contours of your cheeks
Dr. Dimowo is an aesthetic expert and may also suggest combining your filler injections with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is a blood product that stimulates the production of collagen, blood vessels, and fatty tissue to improve the health and look of your skin.
What can I expect during filler injections?
Dr. Dimowo conducts filler injections at the office. Before he begins, he develops a very precise treatment plan so he knows exactly where to place the fillers to get the results you want. To ease any pain before he begins, he may apply a topical anesthetic to your skin.
Each filler injection only takes a few minutes, and the total time of your cosmetic treatment depends on the number of injections you’re receiving.
After injecting the filler, Dr. Dimowo massages it into place to get the desired look. You should notice an improvement in your appearance immediately following your session.
You may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the site of your injections, but these side effects are minimal and should resolve shortly after your treatment.
How long do fillers last?
Depending on the types of fillers used for your treatment, your cosmetic injections may keep you looking young and refreshed for six to 24 months.
You may be able to prolong the effectiveness of your cosmetic injection by using sunblock daily and covering up if you’re spending a lot of time out in the sun.
