Different filler formulas have different expected lifetimes, and various other factors impact how long fillers last. The injection area, amount of filler, and your own body chemistry will affect filler longevity.

Bringing You Results
What does filler do?
Most dermal fillers, including those used at About Face Aesthetics, are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring ingredient that holds moisture and hydrates your skin from the inside, while also providing a subtle plumping effect to your features when injected by experienced providers.
We can use filler to enhance your cheekbones, define your jawline, bring symmetry and volume to your lips, and more.
Ease your injection anxiety
Topical numbing creams provide effective pain relief for moderately uncomfortable skin treatments.
Pronox is a 50/50 mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Often called “laughing gas,” it relieves anxiety and pain.
For a deeper level of numbing, we can utilize lidocaine injections.

The injections were painless and I didn’t have any bruising, migrating, or any other adverse reactions. The results were visible a couple of days later — and they are impressive!

Preparing and caring for your filler injections
Following our pre-care and post-care advice helps ensure successful results from your filler injection.
Tell us if you have previously had to endure facial cold sores or herpes break-outs. We can prescribe medication to minimize the chances and duration of a possible break-out.
Please tell us when scheduling if you know you bruise easily, and we can make suggestions for products to take beforehand to reduce the risk of bruising. For example, eating fresh pineapple a week prior to your appointment can help reduce the likelihood of bruising.
Try to eat a small snack before your appointment. Having food in your stomach during a filler injection will help prevent you from feeling light-headed or faintish.
Consuming blood thinners for 5 days before your treatment. The most likely products patients would take include aspirin, St. John’s wort, fish oil, vitamin E, and alcoholic beverages (these are all anti-coagulators and will increase the likelihood of bruising and bleeding at the injection site).
Scheduling your treatment within 3 weeks of any big event. Any time your skin breaks, there is a chance of bruising or swelling. Make sure to give your body plenty of healing time before a big event in case this occurs.
Undergoing any cosmetic injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Coming to the appointment with any facial products applied. Some of the things you want to avoid before Sculptra injections are makeup, moisturizer, and sunscreen (though if you have to come in with these on, we will wash your face).
Use cold compresses like ice packs that help reduce bruising and swelling.
Limit the levels of heat your skin experiences within 24 hours of your injections. This includes sun exposure and things like heat lamps or tanning beds.
Consider adding an extra pillow under your head when going to sleep, as added elevation can help reduce swelling.
Make sure to stay hydrated and drink lots of water, as this will help everything work to its full capacity.
Remember to ask about follow-up appointments!
Contact us if you’re experiencing any severe side effects after your appointment. Fevers or chills, discolorations around areas or areas warm to the touch, and severe pains are all issues that require immediate attention.
Applying a lot of pressure when using a compress against your skin.
Engaging in aerobic activities for 24 hours after injection treatments. Although extremely rare, you do not want any product to migrate from its injection site.
Sleeping flat on your face (if you can help it) for 3 to 4 days after your treatment.
Scheduling a dental treatment until 2 weeks after your procedure.
Dermal Filler FAQs
While they’re both extremely popular injectables, filler and Botox/Dysport work very differently. Filler is made of hyaluronic acid and, as the name implies, provides a plumping effect that creates more youthful facial contours and can create better facial harmony.
Nope! There’s no such thing as “better than” when it comes to things like fillers, Botox, or other aesthetic treatments. It’s all about finding what’s best for you. A lot of our patients love the way combining fillers and Botox/Dysport make them feel about their appearance.
Yes, there are several different types of fillers. The main categories of fillers include “traditional” fillers, which are formulated with hyaluronic acid and stay in place beneath the surface of your skin to create those beautiful contours and fuller lips. The RHA collection is also formulated with hyaluronic acid, but it’s developed differently to create a more “flexible” filler that can treat dynamic wrinkles because it moves naturally with your expressions. The third category of filler would be biostimulating fillers. Instead of staying beneath your skin to add volume, these fillers go to work deeply stimulating collagen, over time creating firmer and more youthful skin.
