What Can Fillers Do?

The remarkable popularity of dermal fillers can be attributed to their effectiveness and versatility. They aren’t just for lines and folds. At our practice, we use fillers to add youthful volume in areas such as the cheeks and lips. Lip fillers can also be used to create symmetry and enhance the border of the mouth. Popular filler treatment concerns include:

  • Dark circles or hollows beneath the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds framing the mouth
  • Vertical marionette lines on the chin
  • Hollow or flattened cheeks
  • Thin or poorly defined lips

Women and men visit us for a naturally enhanced appearance. The injectable procedure is performed in our office at your appointment.

Your Filler Options

Our practice offers the following injectable fillers:

  • Restylane®: This hyaluronic acid filler is often used to improve the nasolabial fold area and facial creases with smaller folds.
  • JUVÉDERM®: A hyaluronic acid filler, JUVÉDERM can be used to soften facial folds and is available in a variety of consistencies.
  • JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA: Another hyaluronic acid filler, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is FDA approved to treat cheeks and lasts approximately 2 years. Cheek implants are alternatives that last indefinitely but require surgery.

Our board-certified providers evaluate your needs to develop the most appropriate treatment plan for you in our Tucson office. Dermal fillers may be combined with other cosmetic procedures and treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, IPL Photofacial or facial plastic surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will happen at my filler consultation?

During your consultation, you will have access to many before and after photos so you can get a better sense of the instantaneous results our patients achieve when they choose injectable fillers. You will also learn about alternatives to fillers such as the fat transfer procedure and lip lift surgery. All of your questions will be answered so that you can make a smart decision. If you decide to have an injectable treatment, it can be administered during your appointment. If you are considering skin care and facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Olson and Dr. Orlick will work together to develop your treatment plan.

Are filler injections painful?

Newer injectable fillers contain lidocaine to greatly decrease the discomfort of the treatment; additionally, we apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. The procedure is completed in roughly 15 minutes so any discomfort you may experience is minimal, particularly when compared to the benefits. After your treatment bruising and swelling is generally minor. You can enjoy beautiful results immediately.

How long do filler results last?

Depending on the treatment area and the filler used, results can last from approximately 6 months up to 2 years. Your provider will discuss this with you as part of your treatment plan.

Are fillers safe?

When used under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist, injectable dermal fillers are very safe. The fillers we use are made from hyaluronic acid (HA)—a synthetic version of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is biocompatible and not associated with allergic reactions. These fillers are also reversible, so they can be immediately dissolved if the need arises.
