How do Face Filling Injections Work?

As you age, your skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin, proteins necessary for youthful-looking skin. Ageing also causes fat loss in the face and thinning and sagging skin. As a result, you can see hollows and thinness where your face used to be plump and firm.

Face filling injections, also called dermal fillers, work by restoring lost volume to your face. They can fill in hollows and wrinkles, and make your skin look fuller and more rested.


Most dermal fillers are made from gel-like substances – the most common is hyaluronic acid (HA), which your body produces naturally. In addition to adding structure and firmness, HA can help your body produce collagen and elastin. HA also improves overall hydration, which can give your skin a youthful glow.

Many of my clients want filler in more than one area. That’s why I offer dermal filler packages that address a wide variety of concerns and help keep costs down.

How Long Do Fillers Last in Your Face?

Fillers for face, chin, and neck use typically last between six to twelve months. However, some products can last even longer, from two to five years. It’s always best to consult with your doctor or practitioner to find the most suitable fillers and get your desired results.

Of course, everyone is different, and we all metabolise facial fillers at different speeds. To monitor when you need a top-up, keep looking at your face fillers before and after photos.


When you think it’s time for more face filling injections, get back in touch with your doctor or aesthetician. They’ll let you know when you’re ready for a top-up. Finally, if you’re unhappy with your results, your doctor can usually dissolve and reverse the effects of your fillers.

What Happens During a Filler Appointment?

After a thorough consultation to learn about your preferences and concerns, your doctor or aesthetician will select the right filler for your needs. Some are better for undereye troughs, while others are better for lost cheek volume.

Next, your doctor will apply anaesthetic to the targeted areas. Then, they’ll inject the fillers into specific points with a fine needle.

The appointments usually take less than an hour, and there is minimal downtime afterwards. In fact, many people go straight back to work. There might be some minor swelling, redness, or bruising, but you’ll see the results immediately. These side effects will dissipate in around one to two weeks.
