Fillers, also called dermal fillers, are a gel-like cosmetic injection that adds volume under the skin, improving contours and enhancing features.
Volume loss is one of the contributors to the visible signs of aging. As you get older, collagen production slows down, causing your skin to thin and lose its natural elasticity. The layer of subcutaneous fat under the skin also declines with age, causing your skin to loosen and sag.
These structural changes lead to facial lines, creases, and wrinkles.
Fillers are best known for filling in lines and creases around the nose and mouth. That includes the lines that run from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasolabial fold) and the vertical lines above the lip.
In addition to smoothing out wrinkles, HippoMed Wellness Clinics uses fillers to treat:
Filler injections take an hour or less and require little to no downtime, making them the perfect treatment for fixing your minor beauty concerns.
You can expect patient-centered care when getting fillers at HippoMed Wellness Clinics. Before your injections, you meet with your provider to discuss concerns and goals. Then, they create your filler injection plan and review it with you.
After cleaning your skin with an antiseptic agent, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during your treatment. Then, they inject the filler into specific areas of your face, massaging it into place, and reinjecting it until they achieve the desired effects.
Results from filler injections are immediate. You may have some redness and swelling around the site of your injections. You can use a cold pack to reduce these side effects.
HippoMed Wellness Clinics recommends skipping any strenuous physical activity for two days following your filler injection to reduce the risk of bruising.
Fillers are a temporary cosmetic treatment and may last anywhere from six months to a year or more. The length of your results depends on the type of filler used.
Depending on your beauty goals, your provider may suggest combining your filler injections with Botox® for a more dramatic effect.
