BOTOX® & Facial Fillers
Facial fillers are a non-invasive treatment option that can plump thin lips, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soften creases in the face and even improve the appearance of deep scars. These fillers are injected directly into the area needing attention.
These “BOTOX® specials” offer many of the same benefits as a traditional facelift without the recovery time or cost. It is for this reason that they are sometimes called “liquid facelifts.” They are especially effective at plumping up areas of the face and for wrinkle removal.
Injectable Fillers Procedure
Injectable fillers are one of the most straightforward cosmetic surgery procedures available. They can be performed on an outpatient basis and take as little as 15 minutes from start to finish.
While “collagen fillers” is a common phrase when referring to dermal fillers, there are many other types of facial fillers today. You and Dr. Lombardo will discuss your desired results and select the right filler for the job. Choices include:
- Bellafill® “The 5 Year Filler” injections
- JUVÉDERM® injections
- Restylane® injections
- Sculptra® injections
- BOTOX® injections
- Calcium hydroxylapatite injections
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC filler
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Once you’ve settled on a dermal filler, the surgeon will map out where the injections will go using a marking pen on your face. The area will be cleaned and a topical numbing cream will be used to numb the area. The injections take just seconds to perform and multiple sites can be injected at the same appointment.
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Ideal candidates for injectable fillers are realistic. Dermal fillers do not stop the aging process, but they can rejuvenate your looks. If you decide to have Botox, or other type of injectable filler, you must go into it knowing that the results are not permanent. You will need to repeat the process occasionally in order to maintain the look you want.

Recovery time is minimal and many people do not even have to adjust their daily lives to receive facial fillers. After the injections have been placed, the marks will be washed away and you will be given an ice pack to lightly apply to the area. It is important not to put any pressure on the injection spot or else the filler may move. The area may be sore or swollen for a few days and you may experience some bruising. You can wear make-up right away to cover this up.
