What are Facial Fillers ?
Facial Fillers (ie, Restylane® and Juvederm®) are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Can Fillers Be Used Anywhere On The Face?
In the U.S., the FDA has approved facial fillers for wrinkles and folds like the ones from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Dr. Firouz will consult with you prior to your injection regarding common treatment areas.
How Long Do Facial Fillers Last?
Facial Fillers are proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies have shown that the effects of fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® generally last for about six months. The stabilization technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone.
What Should Patients Do Prior To Treatments?
Most Facial Fillers require no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John's Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
