FACIAL FILLER BASICS
The procedure called a wrinkle filler, or facial filler, is the general name given to any procedure that uses injections to fill out the wrinkles in a patient’s face. They can be used on the following areas:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines (adjacent to the mouth)
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, from nose to mouth)
- Perorbital lines (crow’s feet)
Facial fillers can also be used to plump the lips. At Stiller Aesthetics, we use several different kinds of dermal fillers, depending on the severity of the problem, your skin tone and elasticity, your medical history and other factors.

GET TO KNOW YOUR DOCTOR
This is your time to get to know Dr. Stiller and the staff at Stiller. Be sure to convey your goals and expectations for the surgical procedure.
Dr. Stiller will evaluate your medical health and explain the surgical techniques available to you. All of your questions related to the procedure will be answered as thoroughly as possible. Dr. Stiller will perform an examination of your trouble area at the consultation.
Dr. Stiller will go over the risks and potential complications and he will explain the preoperative and post-operative process.
All procedures carry some uncertainty and risks.
- Palpability of filler under the skin
- Skin Necrosis
GETTING READY FOR THE PROCEDURE
Your skin will be evaluated to determine the areas in need of augmentation.
Areas of the face may be marked prior to the injections. However, the marks will be removed at the end of the procedure.
Injections only take a few minutes per site. However, a procedure may take anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour depending on how many injections you get.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Following the injections, you may be provided with an ice pack to reduce swelling. However, facial fillers usually are not painful enough to require medication.
