Fillers Q&A

What are fillers?

Fillers are a type of cosmetic injection that adds volume under your skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance natural features. Filler injections are quick, provide immediate results, and require little to no downtime.

At Blake GI Med Spa Services, the team uses Belotero Balance™, a type of hyaluronic acid filler, for cosmetic injections. 

The hyaluronic acid filler in Belotero Balance undergoes a unique manufacturing process that creates a soft and cohesive gel. When injected, the filler integrates with your skin, giving you a naturally refreshed look. 

What can fillers do?

Many people turn to fillers to “fill in” wrinkles in the lower half of their face. But fillers have many uses.

In addition to smoothing out the lines and creases on your face, fillers:

  • Plump up thin lips
  • Smooth out depressed acne scars
  • Enhance sunken cheeks
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Fix facial deformities

With Belotero Balance, the team at Blake GI Med Spa Services treats nasolabial folds (creases that run from the bottom of your nose to your lips), vertical lip lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and the lines that form at the corner of the mouth. 

What happens during injections with fillers?

The experts at Blake GI Med Spa Services customize your filler treatment plan to match your beauty goals and skin needs. They review your plan at your consultation - so you know what to expect.

Your provider may apply a numbing cream to your skin before starting your injections to ease discomfort. They cleanse the skin with an antibacterial agent and carefully and expertly inject the filler into the desired location. 

Filler injections take an hour or less. Though you may have some redness and swelling at the site of your injections, you should see improvements in your look immediately following your treatment. 

The team at Blake GI Med Spa Services recommends you refrain from any strenuous physical activity for up to 24 hours following your injections to minimize bruising. Otherwise, you can resume most of your usual activities. 

How long do fillers last?

Fillers are a temporary cosmetic treatment, but your results should last six or more months. The Blake GI Med Spa Services team suggests you use sunscreen daily to protect your skin and prolong the length of your beauty treatment.

Blake GI Med Spa Services also offers Botox® injections and may suggest combining fillers with Botox to get the best results.
