Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are thick injectable substances that can rejuvenate, volumize, and smooth your features. At Fresh Face, Cheryl provides numerous high-end dermal filler brands using natural ingredients that agree with your skin. Available dermal filler options include:

  • Juvéderm®
  • Restylane®
  • Radiesse®
  • Belotero®

Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero all use hyaluronic acid (HA) as their primary ingredient. It’s a substance you can find throughout your own body naturally that helps your skin stay plump and retain water. 

Radiesse is slightly different. Instead of HA, it contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). You can find it in small quantities in your bones, and it helps promote collagen building within your skin. 

How can I enhance my appearance with fillers?

Dermal fillers work to place additional volume into your face or hands. You might not realize it, but losing volume in your face and hands contributes to an overall older appearance. Cheryl helps you pinpoint the areas that need a boost and creates your treatment plan accordingly. Using HA or CaHA fillers, she can:

  • Plump your lips
  • Redefine your lips
  • Fill your cheeks
  • Soften deep wrinkles
  • Soften fine lines
  • Diminish indented scars
  • Reduce your lower lid shadows
  • Improve the symmetry of your face
  • Volumize your hands

Cheryl places your dermal filler injections carefully using small amounts at a time to craft your facial enhancements slowly. She ensures that the overall results look natural and help you look refreshed instead of overdone. 

How long do fillers last?

Even though your tissues eventually absorb dermal fillers, they hold the volume for months or even years at a time. HA fillers last for six months to a year, and the results diminish gradually.

CaHA fillers work in a slightly different way and last for longer. The CaHA particles are suspended in a thick, smooth gel. Collagen fibers grow around the particles, lending a natural and long-lasting volumization to your skin. You can expect the changes to stay for a year or longer. 

With either filler type, Cheryl can help you book future appointments for follow-up injections.
