Fillers Q&A

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances crafted to enhance volume in various facial regions, including cheeks, lips, under eyes, and around the mouth. The longevity of fillers varies depending on the treatment area, lasting from six months to a year, with lip treatments typically lasting 3-5 months.

Different types of fillers offer distinct mechanisms:

  1. Hyaluronic acid: Naturally occurring in the body, this filler typically lasts 6-12 months.
  2. Calcium hydroxylapatite: Derived from bone calcium, it produces a soft, vegan-friendly gel lasting 9-15 months.
  3. Collagen stimulator: Stimulates natural collagen production, with results lasting up to five years.
  4. Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) Microspheres: Consisting of synthetic microspheres, providing structure under deep wrinkles and lips for up to five years.
  5. Autologous fat injections: Uses fat from other body areas, offering permanent results.

To explore filler options and determine the most suitable treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Matheis at Wake Forest Dermatology.

What Do Fillers Treat?

Fillers at Wake Forest Dermatology are utilized to rejuvenate the face, addressing wrinkles, enhancing cheek and lip volume, and correcting acne scars. Commonly treated areas include forehead furrows, smile lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, hand veins, and chest wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers may also soften scar tissue and add volume.

What to Expect During a Filler Procedure?

During your consultation, Dr. Matheis assesses your medical history and ensures your eligibility for the procedure. Pregnant individuals or those with certain neurological diseases are advised against receiving fillers.

Upon approval, Dr. Matheis guides you through the procedure details and administers filler injections using a thin needle. Minimal swelling and numbness may occur post-procedure, but these side effects are temporary, allowing you to resume daily activities immediately.
