Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are cosmetic injectables. They contain medical-grade, gel-like substances that “fill” your skin, making it appear smoother, younger, and healthier. 

Over the years, your skin stops producing two proteins called collagen and elastin. The process causes your skin to wrinkle, sag, and droop. Fillers help replace these proteins, restoring your skin to its near-original condition.

What are the types of fillers?

At The Elite Wellness Resort, Dr. Taube offers several types of fillers, including:

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a clear gel substance that keeps your skin soft and smooth. A series of HA injections can moisturize your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Versa™

Versa is a brand-name dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid. A series of Versa injections can add volume to your skin, improving its health and vitality. If you have thin lips, Versa can plump them up.

Bellafill®

Bellafill is a brand-name filler that contains collagen and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. It’s specifically formulated to minimize the appearance of visible acne scars, wrinkles, and facial contours. 

Eyelid fillers

If your eyelids sag or interfere with your vision, Dr. Taube might recommend eyelid fillers. Eyelid fillers plump up your eyelids. They can also be used to reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.

Other procedures

Sometimes fillers aren’t enough to address droopy eyelids. If that’s the case, Dr. Taube might recommend blepharoplasty. The outpatient procedure removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from around your eyes, allowing you to see more clearly.

Are fillers safe?

Fillers are safe and usually well-tolerated. Still, there is a risk of minor side effects, including:

  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Irritation at the injection site

These issues should subside within a day or two, but if they persist, contact Dr. Taube right away.

What type of fillers might benefit me?

Only a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Taube can determine the type of fillers that might benefit you. Following an in-office consultation and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Taube can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
