What is Filler? At The Skin Clique, we offer dermal filler treatments for the face and body to help restore volume for a natural, youthful cosmetic result.
What is a dermal filler?
Dermal Fillers can be made of hyaluronic acid gel, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa), or poly-L-lactic acid and are used to treat the lips, cheeks, smile lines, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, temples, chin, jawline, neck, décolletage, hands and knees. Filler delivers natural-looking results, many of them immediate, lasting from 4-24 months.
Does Filler hurt?
Many Dermal Fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing anesthetic, which helps patients tolerate the procedure. Alternatively, or in addition, we are able to use a topical numbing cream to make you more comfortable. You should expect soreness and swelling for a few days following your dermal filler procedures, but are able to use over-the-counter analgesics to help ease discomfort.

Is there downtime?
Recovery time varies for each patient and type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.
How do I know how much I should get?
Dermal Filler is delivered via 0.55mL - 1.5mL syringes, and your Skin Clique Provider will consult with you on your goals and recommend a treatment plan customized to your needs.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Depending on the area treated and the Patient, the duration of dermal filler can range from 4-24 months.
What happens if there’s an emergency?
Your Skin Clique Provider and their supervising/collaborating physician/The Skin Clique Clinical Leadership team is available to you 24/7 following your treatment to answer any questions about an emergency. Please read the post-treatment instructions closely for more information.
When will I see my results?
Many dermal filler results are visible immediately! You may experience swelling following your injection and can expect this to improve over 7-10 days, in most cases.
