Fillers, also known as injectables or sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift, are biocompatible substances usually made in the form of a gel that are injected into the skin to correct volume loss and facial flaws. Fillers can reduce the appearance of ageing and provide an overall more youthful, rejuvenated look. Below are some of the most popular issues fillers are used to correct:
Because most injectable fillers are biocompatible, the body will eventually absorb them. Results vary depending on the patient’s body chemistry, habits and type of injectable used. Generally, results are enjoyed several months up to a few years.
Highly experienced in administering all of these fillers, Dr. Pastorek and Janice Pastorek advise each patient as to which will best achieve his or her goals.
If you schedule an appointment to have fillers, we suggest you stop taking multi-vitamins, Advil, aspirin, omega-3 oils and vitamin E supplements several days prior to your treatment. When you arrive at our office, we clean your skin and apply a numbing cream. An advocate of homeopathic remedies, Janice Pastorek will suggest various remedies to help you avoid bruising prior to treatment. During your procedure, a chiller will be used to blow cool air over the area treated to ensure comfort and help minimize bruising. Following treatment, you may resume your normal activities, but are advised to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol consumption. Results are enjoyed for several months up to two years depending on the volume and type of product used, and your individual chemistry and lifestyle.
