Injectable Fillers

At Cumberland Skin, we have experienced injectors who proudly offer a wide variety of dermal fillers. The fillers we offer can be used on different facial areas, allowing us to provide individualized treatment catered to your needs and preferences. Whether you're looking to address age-related volume loss in your temples, cheeks, and lower face, or simply aiming to refine your jawline or enhance your lips, our dermal fillers are designed to create a more youthful and contoured appearance.

Our dermal fillers consist of a clear gel containing hyaluronic acid (HA) infused with lidocaine for enhanced comfort during and after injection. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin, helps maintain hydration. The results of our fillers typically last between six months to over two years, depending on the filler type, injected amount, and treatment area.

If you're ready to revitalize your appearance, schedule your appointment for injectable fillers at Cumberland Skin today. The process will start with a consultation where one of our skilled providers will create your custom treatment plan, leading you to a look you love.

What to Expect at Your Injectable Fillers Appointment

At your injectable fillers appointment, you can anticipate a personalized and efficient experience designed to enhance your facial features and restore a youthful appearance. Your appointment begins with a thorough consultation with a dermatology provider to discuss your aesthetic goals, concerns, and the specific areas you'd like to address with fillers. Based on your discussion, the provider will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique facial anatomy and desired outcomes. 

Before the procedure, the treatment area will be cleansed, and, if necessary, a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any potential discomfort. The actual injection process is relatively quick. The provider will carefully administer the chosen filler, strategically placing it to achieve natural-looking enhancements. You may feel minor discomfort, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Injectable Fillers Maintenance Recommendations

Maintaining the results of your injectable fillers involves a combination of conscientious aftercare and periodic follow-up appointments.

After your initial treatment, it's important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your provider. 
  • Regular Follow-Up Appointments: Schedule periodic follow-up appointments with your dermatology provider to assess the longevity of results and determine if touch-up treatments are needed.
  • Sun Protection: Protect your skin from UV damage by applying sunscreen regularly, especially to treated areas, to maintain the quality of your skin.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate hydration, to support overall skin health and the longevity of filler results.
  • Avoiding Extreme Temperatures: Refrain from exposing treated areas to extreme temperatures, such as intense heat or cold, to minimize the risk of complications.
  • Gentle Skincare: Use mild skincare products and avoid harsh exfoliants in the treated areas to prevent irritation and maintain the integrity of the skin.
  • Communication with Provider: Communicate openly with your dermatology provider about any changes or concerns, ensuring prompt guidance and adjustments to the treatment plan if needed.

Injectable Fillers Maintenance Schedule

  • To maintain the benefits of injectable fillers, scheduling a follow-up appointment a few weeks after the initial treatment is crucial.

This regular communication with your provider ensures a consistently rejuvenated appearance and optimal, long-lasting results.
