What's the deal with facial fillers?

Fillers are exceptionally convenient! A quick noticeable difference in facial appearance with minimal pain and recovery. Fillers have quickly become the go-to procedure for younger patients who are not quite ready for surgical facial rejuvenation.

How do facial fillers work? 

In general, fillers are injected either directly underneath skin wrinkles to "fill them out", or can be injected into deeper layers in the face to "refill" the overall youthful volume of the area. The filler then attracts and binds water which helps improve the "plumpness" you get in the treated area. Therefore, unlike Botox, fillers help smooth moderate wrinkles and help volumize the face!

Facial Filler FAQ’s

What type of filler is right for me?

What filler is used in what area of the face is dependent on what issues you are trying to improve. Fillers can be used in all area of the face. They can be used to improve skin wrinkles as well as provide more volume to areas like the lips and cheek. Different fillers are used for each purpose. Dr. Albright will carefully assess your face and goals before offering an individualized treatment plan.

What is the recovery like for facial fillers?

Dr. Albright and his staff will review the recovery restrictions that are specific to your filler procedure before and after the injections. A convenient handout will also be provided so you don't have to worry about remembering everything.

Are facial fillers permanent?

The "off-the-shelf" fillers that Dr. Albright uses are not permanent. This is a benefit and a drawback. The benefit of a temporary change is that if you don't like the result, the filler will be broken down overtime. The downside however, is that if you like the results, they will eventually go away. Also depending on the amount of filler needed to accomplish your goals, this route may get expensive!

Dr. Albright also offers facial fat grafting. This options may be worthy of consideration as this filler can be permanent, and is not a foreign substance.

Are there any specific risks with facial fillers?

Just like injection of any foreign material in the body, there are risks that can occur at the injection site such as irritation, pain, redness and swelling. There can be asymmetry between sides of the face where the product is injected. There can be over and under correction. However, there are also more uncommon but significant risks, which include infection, and injection into blood vessels in the face.  This is why it is important to use a trained professional for your face!
