Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe cosmetic treatment that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth out your skin, add volume to your lips, and give you an overall younger look. 

As you age, your skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, which keep your skin stay tight and plump. As their production decreases over time, your skin starts to sag and develop lines and deep creases. The hollowed appearance can affect visible areas like your face and hands. 

Dr. Pacheco has the expertise and experience to restore volume to targeted areas to give you a fuller, more youthful look.

The procedure only lasts a few minutes, which means you can schedule an appointment during your lunch hour and be back to your normal routine right after. 

Are there different types of fillers?

Missoula Wellness & Medspa provides the following fillers:

Juvéderm®

This type of filler contains hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that helps retain water at your injection site, giving your skin added volume and a smooth appearance. 

Restylane®

This filler also has hyaluronic acid; however, Dr. Pacheco uses it to treat medium-depth wrinkles, such as those around your mouth and nose. Restylane-L is the same filler but also contains lidocaine, which aids in relieving any discomfort during your procedure.

Versa™

Versa has multiple purposes. Its small, spherical particle-size syringe provides smoothness and volume at the injection site. With Versa, you have a quick recovery and less swelling when compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers. 

During your consultation, Dr. Pacheco analyzes your skin and goes over aesthetic goals to help determine the best dermal filler for you. Results from fillers typically last 6-12 months, depending on the area treated and the type you choose.

What areas do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers are an excellent solution for treating sagging and lined skin on the bottom half of your face. They produce successful results for:

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds (the area around your nose and mouth)
  • Vertical lines around your mouth
  • Thinning lips
  • Hollowed areas of your hands

Dermal fillers don’t only serve you well if you want to slow down the appearance of aging. You can also have dermal fillers if you want bigger lips for aesthetic reasons.
