Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Fillers are made of natural substances -- such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, polymethylmethacrylate, poly-l-lactic acid, or autologous fat --  and enhance facial volume to reduce signs of aging. Dermal fillers are injections that can produce dramatic antiaging results. Juvéderm® and Restylane® are examples of common filler products.

What are the benefits of fillers?

By choosing fillers at Total Cosmetix, you can reap the following cosmetic benefits:

  • Plumper lips
  • Diminished vertical lip lines
  • Enhanced facial volume
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Smoother creases
  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • A younger-looking overall appearance

Filler injections are fast and painless and can give you the confidence you desire. They don’t require cutting, surgery, or downtime.

Are fillers right for me?

Dr. Towhidian and his team let you know if you’re a good candidate for fillers after reviewing your medical history and evaluating your skin. Fillers are safe and effective for all skin types. The Total Cosmetix team may recommend fillers combined with other aesthetic treatments, like Botox® or Kybella®.

What happens during filler injections?

Prior to filler injections, Dr. Towhidian can numb the treatment area to make your procedure feel comfortable. He injects filler substances beneath your skin at targeted areas to restore facial volume and reduce signs of aging. Receiving filler injections is a fast, noninvasive, painless procedure.

After treatment, you might notice redness or swelling at the injection site, but these side effects soon subside. You can use an ice pack to reduce swelling if you’d like. Because there’s no downtime associated with fillers, you can resume a normal daily routine right away.

When will I notice results?

You may notice results after filler injections right away, with optimal results appearing over the next few days. Dr. Towhidian might recommend a series of filler treatments to help you achieve the outcome you desire. Fillers can last 6-24 months or longer, so periodic maintenance treatments are necessary to achieve long-lasting results.

Don’t live with signs of aging that make you self-conscious when simple cosmetic injectables help you look years younger without downtime. Schedule a consultation with Total Cosmetix over the phone or online to find out if fillers are right for you.
