To find out if fillers are right for you, call the clinic today or schedule an appointment online.
What are fillers?
Fillers are hyaluronic acid-based medications that plump up the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a substance your body already produces. It keeps your skin supple, hydrated, and youthful. Your hyaluronic acid levels deplete as you age, causing your skin to thin and wrinkle.
By replacing this lost volume, fillers can smooth wrinkles, reshape thin lips, and contour the hollows in your midface.
Can fillers treat all types of wrinkles?
Fillers primarily treat static wrinkles, while neuromodulators — Botox®, Dysport®, etc. — target dynamic wrinkles.
What can I expect from my treatment with fillers?
Administering fillers only takes a few minutes. When you arrive at University Family Medicine Center, P.C., the team applies an anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Next, they inject the filler into the predetermined areas. The process should not feel painful or uncomfortable.
Filler results are instant, so you can enjoy your rejuvenated appearance immediately. While you may experience minor swelling and bruising, these side effects are temporary.
How long do results from fillers last?
Results from fillers can last for up to 6 to 12 months or longer in some cases. The team can combine your treatments with Botox to target multiple types of wrinkles in a single session. You can extend your results by returning to the clinic for maintenance treatments.

How does Botox work?
Botox is a neuromodulator that temporarily paralyzes muscles. Once injected, Botox interferes with the nerve signals that tell muscles to contract. The muscle can’t move, so the skin on top relaxes. In this way, Botox can soften existing wrinkles and prevent fine lines from deepening.
