filler faq's

At plush.md we use several different injectable fillers. Dr. Tanne will help you decided which filler(s) are the best option to obtains the results you want.

Restylane-l, restylane lyft, restylane silk, and belotero balance are all made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. They lift moderate to severe hollows and folds and are perfect adding volume and definition to the cheeks, fullness to lips and reducing or eliminating under-eye hollows. Depending on which filler is used, dr. tanne can fill hollows in the temples, minimize lip lines, improve a receding chin, enhance the jawline, and much more. Most hyaluronic acid fillers last about 6 months.

Restylane refyne and defyne are next-generation cross-linked hyaluronic dermal fillers that use XpresHAn Technology. They are flexible gels, making them perfect for use in nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane defyne was designed for use in the mid-to-deep dermis layer of the skin to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds; this includes marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth to the chin, and nasolabial folds, which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane refyne works best on folds and wrinkles that are relatively superficial.

Radiesse + is a stimulant filler which can significantly lift cheeks, fill hollows, enhance your jaw and chin, and us used for a non-surgical nose job. Radiesse stimulates your own production of collagen giving you a more youthful look along with its lifting, filling properties, and last approximately one year after injection.


Is there anything I should do before my filler treatment?

Yes! Please stop taking any aspirin one week before your appointment. Also, 3-4 days before treatment stop taking any fish oil and vitamin E supplements, advil, aleve, motrin and other nsaid’s. These medications are heart-healthy since they prevent clotting but could lead to significant bruising when taken just before filler treatment.


Do I need to avoid anything?

You may apply makeup after your treatment. please wait till the day after your treatment to work out or do any heavy lifting. You should sleep on your back the first night with an extra pillow to elevate your head, both to prevent swelling. Don’t rub the treated area. When washing your face, the first day use gentle dabbing motions and don’t let shower water spray directly on your face. You may take Tylenol for any discomfort.


Are there any side effects that are normal?

Bumps can sometimes happen after treatment, more commonly under the eyes and the lips. They usually improve without any other treatment or can be massaged. Rarely we need to inject a very small amount of an enzyme to dissolve a bit of the filler.

Swelling can happen any time you are injected. Some areas are more likely to swell than others. Rarely, if swelling is severe or prolonged, we will prescribe an anti-swelling medication.

Bruising is more common for some people than others. As mentioned above, we want you to avoid taking certain medications before your treatment unless these are prescribed for another medical condition.

If you have any questions after your treatment, have increasing redness or severe pain, please call or text us. We want to know if you are experiencing any problems from your filler treatment!


Is my final result what I see right after treatment?

What you see immediately after treatment is approximately what your result will be after a few days. You may be a bit sore for the first day, but the treated area will look and feel great in a couple of days. If you like your filler right away, you’ll love it in two weeks. We want you to come back and see us for a complimentary follow-up visit at that time. At your follow-up visit, we will re-photograph you and compare your photos to the ones taken before your treatment. We want you to be completely thrilled with your results!
