What are Fillers?

Also known as dermal fillers and soft tissue fillers. Fillers are used for minimally invasive aesthetic procedures to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the cheeks, lips, jawline, chin, temples and nasolabial folds resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures because they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time.

When to consider Fillers?

  • If you have deep facial lines, or volume loss.
  • If you would like to change the contours of your jaw or lips.
  • If you are interested in a minimally invasive procedure.


  • Filler injections are quick and only require a topical anesthetic at most.
  • Results are immediate and there is little to no downtime.
  • Fillers provide a subtle look that can be adjusted to meet your aesthetic needs.


  • Fillers are temporary and require repeat injections to maintain your goal.
  • Some people may be sensitive and experience bruising and swelling.
  • No vigorous exercise for up to 24 hours.

Types of Fillers


Hyaluronic acid-based fillers – A naturally occurring substance in the skin and primarily used to promote fullness and volume.



Calcium Hydroxylapatite – Heavier and denser than hyaluronic acid, this filler is injected deeper, underneath the skin. Since the material is found in bone it does not usually cause immune or allergic responses.


The length of results from your dermal fillers is dependent on the type of injection you received and varies with your lifestyle.

Hyaluronic Acid based fillers: results will last five to nine months.

Semi-Permanent fillers: results will last between seven and nine months.
