What is Filler?
Facial fillers are products made from chemicals found in the body such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite. The use of fillers can eliminate wrinkles, plump and hydrate lips, replace soft-tissue volume loss, raise scar depressions, and volumize creases and folds of the face. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to such damage through facial injections.
Frequently asked Questions
How much does Filler cost?
Because everyone’s needs are different, and with such a wide variety of treatments involving filler, a personal consultation is the best way to establish cost. With that in mind, filler treatments start at $600. This cost not only reflects the price of the product, but also the skill, knowledge and expertise of the medical injector.
When will I see results?
Results are visible immediately after treatment, even before you leave Portland Pain and Spine.
How long do results last?
Longevity differs from person to person and from treatment to treatment. Because the product is being injected into the body, some bodies may metabolize the product faster than others. See below for average longevity based on treatment:
