What are Injectable Fillers?

Injectable fillers are gels made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. There are numerous brands of injectable fillers each with different properties and indications of use. Injectable fillers are administered to replace volume and fill areas of mild to moderate volume loss of the face that occur due to the natural process of aging and weight loss. Injectable fillers are FDA-approved to fill the lines of the face, around the mouth and nose, often referred to as "marionette lines" or "parentheses” as well as under eyes and lips. Other areas of the face can be treated off-label.

How are fillers administered?

Fillers are injected into the dermis of the skin using a precise, small bore needle. Upon initial consultation, Dr. Mays will work with you to help determine which areas of the face would respond best to treatment and which type of filler and how many syringes would be needed. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin for several minutes before the procedure, and the injectable filler itself contains another numbing agent to make sure your treatment is comfortable.

How long does it take to see results? How long do results last?

Most people notice desired changes to the treated areas immediately. There may be some swelling which can last up to 72 hours but usually dissipates within 24 hours. Duration of results can vary from individual to individual and area to area, but improvements commonly last 6-12 months and decrease gradually over time.

What are the costs of injectable fillers and are treatments covered by insurance?

Since these are elective cosmetic procedures, insurance does not cover treatment costs. The cost can vary based on the amount and type of product needed, which varies for each individual patient. Dr. Mays and her staff will help tailor a specific treatment plan for each patient and aid in determining cost before any injections are performed.

Injectable Fillers We Offer

Botox®/Dysport®

Botox®/Dysport® is a simple and safe procedure that can be performed during a routine visit, with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Botox®/Dysport® works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or smile lines around the eyes. If treatments are not continued, the muscles will gradually return to normal function and wrinkles will return. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw pain. Our goal with Botox®/Dysport® is to give our patients a “softer and relaxed look”, not eliminate movement.

Injectable Fillers

Restylane® & Juvéderm®

Dermal facial fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. These fillers are commonly used in combination with Botox. The essential difference between Botox and dermal fillers is that Botox is injected into the muscle to prevent the movement that causes wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers are injected directly into the wrinkle or depression to fill it.

Kybella®

KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection, the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug available that contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” is now available. Submental fullness is a common, yet under-treated aesthetic condition that is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain.

PRP Facial Rejuvenation

PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.

PRP Hair Restoration

The PRP system we utilize has shown to improve hair shaft length, increase hair density, and increase follicular units. The system's patented gel technology efficiently separates red blood cells from PRP and produces an industry leading platelet-recovery yield of 85 percent per unit volume, increasing its purity and minimizing injection discomfort. Best of all, our system was designed to be easy on our patients. The preparation process takes just a few minutes with as little as 10cc of blood draw. The result is a more efficacious and comfortable PRP experience.
