Fillers

Fillers enhance your features or restore youthfulness with no downtime. Whether giving you poutier lips, fuller cheeks, or softening lines, fillers serve as a quick and effective treatment by increasing volume in precise areas of the face. Although fillers sometimes are associated with celebrities having overdone or obvious plastic surgery, they can be used delicately to obtain natural-looking, soft results with no downtime.

What are the different types of filler?

Many different fillers are available currently. Common name brands include Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, etc. Since each filler has its own subtle differences with regarding to feel, thickness, and handling, Dr. Sailon believes that each filler has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages. He will guide and recommend fillers depending on your unique anatomy and areas to be treated.

Where can fillers be used?

Because of the various fillers available, they can be used in nearly all parts of the face to add volume with precision. This can be done to enhance existing features or to fill areas of deflation that occur with aging. The common areas treated include:

Lips lip fillers can be used to create a range of looks from a subtle addition of lip fullness to a poutier, sexier look. This can be done in a way that looks very natural and not overly done or fake.

Tear trough – the junction between the lower eyelid and cheek can become sunken or hollow as we age. Fillers can be used to camouflage this area and give a more refreshed, less tired look. Dr. Sailon often uses a blunt needle (or cannula) in this area for safety and to prevent bruising and swelling.

Cheeks restoring volume in the cheeks is one of the keys to restoring youth. Fillers here can bring back the fullness in the cheeks that is lost with age.

Nasolabial folds the “smile lines” or folds between the lower cheek and mouth can be softened with filler.

Jawline/chin if you wish to highlight your jawline or chin, fillers can be used to add additional structure to harmonize your face.

Temples the temples are often thought of as one of the more subtle areas of volume loss in aging. Filler in this area can help with a hollow look.

Lip lines small lines around the mouth can be softened with filler. These are difficult to fully erase and often require multi-modality treatment with Botox or resurfacing agents.

Are fillers painful?

Dr. Sailon will create the most comfortable experience possible by using pain-relieving tools such as cooling, vibration, and topical numbing creams to make sure you have minimal discomfort.

Who performs the injections in the practice?

Dr. Sailon performs all injections of fillers personally. He believes a thorough understanding of your facial anatomy and muscle structure are necessary to give you the results you desire. Dr. Sailon aims to enhance and maintain the balance and harmony in your face.

What other non-surgical techniques exist?

Fillers are just one tool among many non-surgical techniques. Fillers are often used in combination with Botox to relax muscles and soften wrinkles. Resurfacing via medical grade skin care, lasers, or chemical peels complements Botox and improves the texture and tone of the skin. In addition, resurfacing can improve age-related skin changes such as sunspots.

After serious consideration, and in line with the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we will be limiting our practice until April 7th.
