Fillers Q & A
What are fillers?
Fillers, or dermal fillers, are cosmetic solutions that are administered through injections that add volume under your skin. As you get older, the supportive subcutaneous fat just below the surface of your skin begins to diminish. The loss of fat and volume causes your skin to sag, creating the crepey and wrinkled look.
Fillers act as a cosmetic replacement for the lost fat. Dr. Vajtai offers the Juvéderm® line of fillers at Veinity MD. He uses these fillers to:
- Plump up thin lips
- Soften frown and lip lines
- Enhance cheeks
- Smooth out lines and wrinkles
Dr. Vajtai may also use dermal fillers to fix facial deformities.
Am I a good candidate for fillers?
Dr. Vajtai determines if you’re a good candidate for fillers during a cosmetics consultation. The best candidates are those who are committed to taking care of their skin after the treatment.
Dr. Vajtai also considers your aesthetic goals when devising your cosmetic treatment plan. He works one-on-one with you to determine the most effective cosmetic treatment that can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
What can I expect during my filler injections?
Your filler injections take place at the Veinity MD office and usually take an hour or less. Many of the Juvéderm® fillers contain lidocaine, so you should feel only minimal discomfort during your injections.
Afterward, you may notice some redness and swelling at the injection site, which you can treat with an ice pack. These side effects, however, should go away quickly.
There’s no downtime following your injections, but Dr. Vajtai may recommend that you skip your strenuous workouts for a day or two following your session.
What happens after my fillers?
You should see an improvement in your look immediately after your injections. To maintain your younger, enhanced look, Dr. Vajtai recommends you use sunblock daily and cover up with a hat and sunglasses when you’re out in the sun for any length of time. With proper skincare practices, your Juvéderm® fillers may last as long as a year.
