Morris, MD, of Radiance Wellness MediSpa in Southlake, Texas, uses injectable fillers to enhance your facial features and improve the overall fullness of your face.

Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Dr. Morris injects fillers, also called dermal or facial fillers, just under your skin to add volume and combat the natural aging effects of depleted collagen. In addition to firming the skin, fillers smooth lines and wrinkles, soften creases and folds, and improve facial contours.

Radiance Wellness MediSpa features an extensive menu of filler treatments, including:

  • Juvederm®
  • Voluma®
  • Restylane®
  • Restylane Lyft® and
  • Belotero®

What types of issues can fillers fix or improve?

Dr. Morris may recommend fillers to treat eye circles, bags under the eyes, lip augmentation, and facial volume.

Typical treatment areas include:

  • Around the cheekbones and lips
  • On and around the eyelids, tear troughs, and under-eye circles
  • The folds connecting the nose and corners on the lips (nasolabial folds)

What can I expect when I have a filler treatment?

Dr. Morris performs your filler treatment in two sessions: an initial consultation and the actual treatment.

Step One: Consultation

Before your treatment appointment, Dr. Morris meets with you for a consultation to learn more about your goals and medical history. If she decides you’re a candidate for a filler treatment, you can make a treatment appointment to get started on your journey to a more youthful you.

Step Two: Filler treatment

The filler treatment takes about 30 minutes. Initially, Dr. Morris cleans the targeted facial area. For your comfort, she applies a topical anesthetic. Next, Dr. Morris injects a specific amount of filler or fillers just under your skin.

Most women and men experience minimal side effects, which may include mild swelling, redness, bruising, or irritation. Because it’s a minimally invasive procedure, you may return to work or resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Dr. Morris may recommend refraining from rigorous activity or exercise.

How long do the results of a filler treatment last?

As with Botox, the effects of facial fillers are temporary. Dr. Morris must perform periodic maintenance injections to maintain the results.

The results of filler treatments typically last between 6 and 12 months. How long your results last depends on the filler used, the injection site, and the severity of the wrinkle or line.
