FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR FACIAL FILLERS
Aging is a natural process we all must endure. You needn’t live with the wrinkles or lines that come with age and diminish your confidence, however. Facial fillers by Balance Hormone Center can help.
HOW LONG DO FACIAL FILLERS LAST? ARE THEY PERMANENT?
Facial fillers are not permanent. They last between 6 to 24 months, depending on the type of filler used. Our fillers come in various thicknesses (viscosity) which help determine the longevity of the treatment. We offer both Belotero Balance® and Restylane® fillers, each with their own longevity and benefits, depending on your needs.
HOW MUCH DO FACIAL FILLERS COST?
Our facial fillers cost between $500 and $1,000 a syringe, depending on the filler. Cost also depends on the procedure requested, the product choice and the amount of filler required to treat the affected area. We’ll thoroughly discuss your treatment needs and ensure you’re aware of the full cost prior to your treatment.
ARE FACIAL FILLERS SAFE?
Absolutely! Fillers include hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally-occurring substance in our body that aids in lubricating our joints and keeping our skin supple. Plus, only licensed physicians in our office are able to inject facial fillers.
WHAT DO FACIAL FILLERS DO?
After age 40, our face loses approximately 10% of fat volume, causing our faces to sag and appear hollow or aged. Hyaluronic acid (HA) enhances our body’s features, particularly the face. Using a syringe, we inject the solution under the skin to fill wrinkles, lines, scars and more.
WHAT ARE FACIAL FILLERS MADE OF?
Facial fillers are made out of long chains of protein that are highly attracted to water. A concentrate of these chains is injected under your skin. After two-to-five days, they absorb extra water from your body, increasing volume.
ARE FACIAL FILLERS PAINFUL?
The procedure itself can be slightly uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be painful. We’ll first clean and disinfect the area. Then, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream which is allowed to sit for 30 to 40 minutes to help prevent any pain. Although the hyaluronic acid (HA) does not promote inflammation, some individuals may have some injection site redness and inflammation after treatment.
