Injectable fillers used today are most commonly made of hyaluronic acid, common fillers in this category would be Juvaderm or Restalyne. Fillers are designed to add volume to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks or Nasolabial folds, doing so will improve the appearance of aging and wrinkling. Whereas neurotoxins are designed to temporarily paralyze muscles to prevent formation of lines(rhytids) of the face. Botox and Dysport are the two most commonly used neurotoxins in the United States.

How long do hyaluronic acid fillers last?

This depends on which filler is being used and where it is being placed. With newer fillers such as Juvaderm Vollure and Voluma or Restalyne Refyne and Defyne, the fillers can last up to 18 months, however more commonly the fillers last 6-12 months depending on area being filled.

Is there anything special I need to do before undergoing filler treatment?

It is recommended to follow an anti-bruising regimen which would include arnica to reduce any bruising post treatment. In addition, if you are a patient with any history of cold sores your physician should prescribe antiviral medication to take to help prevent a sore from developing after treatment.

Are hyaluronic acid fillers safe and what are common side effects?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are very safe and typically only cause some mild and temporary redness, swelling and possible bruising.

What is a liquid facelift?

This refers to volumizing and enhancing the shape of the entire face non-surgically with fillers alone for patients whom either do not desire surgery or are not good surgical candidates. This procedure is performed using a combination of topical and local anesthesia.

Who can perform these injectable procedures?

In the state of Florida, properly licensed physician’s, physician assistants, and Nurse practitioner’s most commonly perform these procedures. Board certified Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists perform these procedures nationwide.
