Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers, also called dermal fillers, are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment available at Somerset Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. With dermal fillers, you can make slight adjustments to your physical appearance without the commitment and complications of surgery.

Fillers are thick substances that can be found in your body naturally in small amounts, like hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, that Dr. Clott injects under your skin to add more volume and even a slight lifting effect. You can get them on your face and, in some instances, on your hands, to make it look like you have the subdermal fat and tissue of your youth.

You lose subdermal fat naturally as you age, making you look thin, bony, and even more wrinkled than you’d like to be. Dermal fillers can give you a more youthful look.

What can fillers fix?

There are several types of dermal fillers that rely on different substances to adjust the way you look. Benefits include:

  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Fewer fine lines
  • Fuller cheeks
  • Plumper lips
  • More defined lips
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Less prominent eye bags
  • Less noticeable scars

Dr. Clott administers the injections very meticulously and in slight amounts to make sure that you don’t look overdone or engorged. One of the benefits of using dermal fillers rather than cosmetic surgery to adjust your appearance is that the results are tastefully slight and therefore often look more natural, even if they’re less dramatic.

How long do the results of fillers last?

Dermal fillers are temporary and slowly get absorbed by your tissues and processed through your body. Depending on the type of fillers that you get, your results could last anywhere from six months to a year or longer. 

If you tried fillers out and liked your new look, you can get repeated injections as needed from Dr. Clott to retain the improvements to your appearance.
