Fillers

Fillers in Memphis and Germantown

Dermal fillers are used to fill lines and restore lost volume, enhancing your facial contours and lips for natural-looking results. They are injected into the deeper layers of skin at the site of sunken areas, creases, or scars to smooth and fill out the area for a firmer, more youthful appearance. The most popular dermal fillers are Juvéderm®, Artefill®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Silikon 1000®, Restylane® and Belotero®, all of which have been shown to be safe and effective for their indicated use.

We now offer Voluma™, a new filler from the makers of Botox® and Juvéderm®!

Voluma™ is a new hyaluronic acid filler that adds volume and contour to the cheeks to enhance the appearance of cheekbones for up to 24 months. Though it is a filler, it is not considered a “dermal filler” because it is injected below the muscle underlying the skin. In fact, it is the first and only filler of its kind!

Artefill® is a long-term filler that provides wrinkle correction for up to 5 to 15 years. The unique microspheres work with your body to produce collagen, which provides the support your skin needs for natural, long lasting results.

Juvéderm® XC is a smooth hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler that is used to add volume to areas of the face and decrease the appearance of wrinkles.

Radiesse® is a long-lasting injectable product and is a popular dermal filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen for long-lasting results.

Sculptra® provides long-lasting results and helps your body naturally diminish the appearance of wrinkles over time by replacing lost collagen.

Silikon 1000® (Siloxane compound) provides a very natural-looking permanent soft lip augmentation, and has a very favorable profile in comparison to many other fillers. Silikon 1000 is also used to help diminish the appearance of acne scars as well as other facial scars.

Restylane® is a safe and effective hyaluronic acid that restores volume and fullness to the skin, thus reducing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for a younger-looking you.

Belotero® is the newest soft gel filler that quickly integrates into your skin for immediate results that are natural and smooth.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fillers

Are Dermal Fillers safe for cosmetic use?
As a general rule the FDA has approved all fillers for either a medical use or a specific cosmetic use to one area of the face.  Almost all medical providers who perform injectable services use these products on an area other that the area that was approved by the FDA. For this reason it is important to make certain that your medical provider has adequate training, experience, and proven skills.  This will insure a high likelihood of a safe and effective treatment for you.

How do I know which filler to choose?
During your initial consultation, our highly trained staff will discuss your areas of concern and the results you are looking for, then recommend a customized treatment plan for you.

Can I be treated with more than one type of dermal filler?
Absolutely! In fact, multiple products may be used during your treatment to ensure that your facial volumization maintains a natural, balanced look.

Can I be allergic to cosmetic dermal fillers?
Typically only dermal fillers that are derived from animals have a risk of allergy to consumers. We will discuss this during your consultation and take appropriate steps to determine if any allergy is of concern.

Can I use Dermal Fillers if my skin is of color?
The latest dermal filler products are appropriate for skin of color. They are formulated clear and are not visible beneath the skin and will not alter the skin color.

Will there be any downtime after treatment?
Most people find that they can return to work or go about their normal daily activities immediately after treatment. If any bruising occurs, this can be covered up with makeup. Swelling and bruising may occur with the treatment of multiple areas of the face. However, our injectors are highly skilled and trained to minimize bruising while still ensuring a great result. A unique aspect of Germantown Aesthetics is that we can also provide a quick laser treatment to help resolve any bruising and shorten downtime. We can also provide other information to you to help prevent and treat bruising and swelling.

What does the filler consultation involve?
Your initial, no-obligation consultation at Germantown Aesthetics will begin with a facial scan, which generates a 3D image allowing you to see yourself as you are seen by others. This process takes less than 15 minutes and is conducted by our Patient Care Coordinators. During the scanning process, we will discuss what you wish to achieve and assess your treatment needs. You will then meet with one of our highly experienced medical professionals to determine the treatment plan most suitable for you.
