Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers are safe, effective cosmetic injections to temporarily fill wrinkles, restore facial fullness, and enhance your appearance. Fillers can improve the appearance of many areas of your face that are affected by aging. 

Fillers help to:

  • Erase fine lines
  • Plump your lips
  • Diminish scars
  • Contour your jaw
  • Lift your brow or downturned mouth
  • Restore fullness in cheeks and deep creases

Fillers also help to rejuvenate your hands by restoring fullness in your skin.

Can anyone get fillers?

Dr. Kaw meets with you to determine whether you have any health conditions that would prevent you from getting fillers. Let him know if you’ve had previous cosmetic treatments and whether you have any of the following issues: 

  • Allergies
  • Bleeding disorder 
  • Cold sores 
  • Heart condition 
  • Easily irritated skin

Some medications may make you bruise easily or lead to complications. Be sure to tell him about all the medications you are taking. This includes all vitamins, minerals, and herbal remedies. 

How do I get fillers?

Dr. Kaw consults with you beforehand, so you can describe the results you would like to attain. Injections of fillers are quick, usually taking 15-30 minutes. 

Dr. Kaw may apply a topical numbing cream beforehand or apply ice to your treatment area. He injects the filler into the area, often giving you several injections to produce the best results. 

You may feel a slight sting from the needle. Once the injections are complete, patients notice results right away.

Do fillers need any special care?

Dr. Kaw sometimes recommends icing the area for 15-20 minutes before you leave to reduce any redness and swelling from the injections. You should be able to get back to your everyday activities after leaving the office. You will be able to apply makeup as usual.

How long do fillers last?

The Retreat Medical Spa: Henry Kaw, MD, offers fillers from Allergan®, makers of JUVÉDERM® Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Voluma. They are made of hyaluronic acid gel, which typically lasts 6-24 months. Dr. Kaw recommends coming back regularly for repeat treatments to maintain your results.
