About Injectable Fillers
Wrinkle fillers (or simply fillers) are often utilized to replace lost facial volume. Volume is often lost in the face for a variety of reasons, but significant weight loss and the natural aging process are major contributors. Injectable dermal fillers work by incorporating the filler beneath the skin to fill in areas lacking volume or shape. Injectable fillers are an excellent, minimally invasive alternative for Salina, KS men and women desiring to even out sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines to create a younger-looking face. There are a variety of fillers that could help meet the goals and desires of each patient. Dr. Patrick Lucaci and his team provide an array of injectable fillers including Kybella, Juvéderm, Voluma, and Vobella. During your consultation at our facility, our injectables coordinators will be able to determine the best filler to fit your wants and needs. To find out which products are right for you, we encourage you to visit Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina where we can help you learn more.

The best candidates for dermal fillers are those seeking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift. In most situations, those with significant signs of aging, or who have recently lost a significant amount of weight have areas on their face that are sunken or have lost their shape. These attributes make them good candidates for injectable fillers. Fillers are also a promising option for men and women who are not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.
Prior to your injection procedure, one of our injectables coordinators will meet with you to gain insight into your aesthetic goals and decide which product will best deliver them. For the actual procedure, topical numbing cream will be applied as an anesthetic to ease the discomfort of the injection. Your injector will use their experience to determine the amount of filler that is necessary and will slowly and gradually inject it via a small needle. Half or an entire syringe could be used, depending on the desired result.
What to Expect
Fillers can be injected in our Salina, KS office in a brief timeframe. Due to the use of the anesthetic, the process for most patients is mildly uncomfortable and does not require downtime. You can expect bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms will fade away quickly. Results can last from three months to a full year based on the type of filler used and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.
