Fillers Q&A

What are fillers?

Fillers, or dermal fillers, are gel-consistency cosmetic injectables that add extra volume to your face or hands. At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo uses hyaluronic acid fillers by Merz® and Allergan® to minimize wrinkles and to contour the face and jaw. 

Hyaluronic acid is a substance found throughout your body, including in your eyes and joints, which bonds with water molecules to lubricate these areas. It also helps your skin remain plump and hydrated. In filler form, hyaluronic acid is easy to inject and provides a soft, subtle volume without compromising the beauty of your natural features. 

Dr. Lo injects fillers after giving you a topical numbing cream or ice to minimize discomfort. During the planning process, she studies your facial anatomy and maps out where the filler injections will look best. 

What results can I get with fillers?

Fillers are highly versatile — you can accomplish more than one aesthetic goal using fillers alone. Plus, they’re an excellent choice if you want a more subtle and easy transformation than cosmetic surgery can provide. 

Using fillers at Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, you can:

  • Plump your lips
  • Redefine your lips
  • Diminish lip lines
  • Smooth larger wrinkles
  • Smooth a chin crease
  • Restore volume in the cheeks
  • Restore volume in the temples
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Add volume to the backs of your hands
  • Stimulating collagen production to hands and neck

The first step in treatment is a detailed consultation with Dr. Lo. You can name your goals and tell her your expectations for the results. Using the information you give her, Dr. Lo plans your treatment with fillers and possibly some other aesthetic treatment such as Botox®.

How long do fillers last?

Hyaluronic acid fillers dissolve over time within your skin, but the process takes some time. You can anticipate results lasting for 6-12 months or longer depending on what you use the fillers for and your own biochemistry. 

When the results start to fade, you can contact Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness for follow-up injections whenever you choose. You can get fillers routinely from Dr. Lo as part of your ongoing cosmetic maintenance. 

When will I see my results from fillers?

The results from fillers are visible right away. However, it takes some time for the filler to soften and settle in your skin, so you won’t see the final effect until about a week after you get your injections.
