FAQs – Dermal Fillers


Dermal Fillers

How long does filler last?

Like most things, this varies. Where your filler is placed, what product is used, how severe the correction is, all effect how long the filler will last. Typically, most fillers last between 9-12 months

How many syringes do I need?

You need to meet with your injector to discuss what your cosmetic goals are and what it will take to achieve that. Many factors, including the patients facial structure and volume loss will impact the syringes needed.

Can I use the same syringe to treat everywhere?

Probably not. Unless the areas of improvement are very minor one syringe is not enough product to spread to multiple treatment areas.

What filler is the best?

The best filler is the one that is appropriate for the area. The filler that’s best for the undereye hollows is not the same as the filler used to build volume in the cheeks.

What is the cannula technique?

The cannula is a blunt needle that is used to help minimize bruising.

What is the difference between filler and botox?

Filler is used for filling in areas of depleted volume and etched in static lines. Botox is used for dynamic action lines.

Is there any down time after getting a filler procedure?

It’s recommended to have a 2 week window after filler and before any major social events. Potential downtime would consist of bruising and swelling.

What if I don’t like the results?

Filler is not permanent. You and your injector will have a discussion before the procedure to ensure you are both on the same page. If you are unsure of your results you can come back in for an adjustment or even have it dissolved if that’s necessary.

Will I look like I’ve had something done?

Our motto at Rêvée is, “The best injectable is undetectable.”

Can I have my teeth whitened after having lip filler?

Crest White Strips are fine but anything that uses a tray or an in-office treatment you will need to wait 2 weeks. Waiting 2 weeks allows your filler to settle and not be moved to improper placement.
