Injectable fillers or facial fillers provide a wide array of innovative options to treat a variety of cosmetic issues, from adding volume to your lips to refining and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Our injectables in Boston have become the most popular, minimally-invasive method for facial rejuvenation.
The aging process and your facial skin
Let's face it! Getting older is not always fun, especially when it begins to show up as fine lines and wrinkles on your beautiful face. The more we age, the less collagen our bodies produce, and this can be seen in your skin as it loses that youthful plumpness, allowing fine lines and wrinkles to develop. Do you want to stave off the signs of aging, recapture some of that youthful fullness to reduce visible lines? Injectable fillers may be the perfect answer.
What are injectable fillers?
Injectable fillers are made up of a variety of materials. While the bulk of injectable fillers are made up of HA – hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar in the human body), others are made of biodegradable human-made polymers, and some are non-biodegradable for longer-term results. The trick with these fillers is knowing what their specific applications are and which filler is appropriate. Most importantly, you want treatment with the filler that will produce the best result – for you. It is best to consult with Dr. Montilla, our acclaimed board-certified plastic surgeon.
What are the benefits of facial fillers?
Injectable fillers are a versatile enhancement for facial rejuvenation and can:
- Plump and define lips
- Minimize lip lines
- Soften lines and wrinkles

The benefits of injectable fillers are not just in what the fillers can do for you, but most importantly, lie in the knowledge and artistry of the doctor administering the injections. You will find such a doctor for injectables in Boston in Dr. Montilla.

Types of Fillers
Juvederm injectable is a popular non-surgical procedure that quickly provides patients with an enhanced look and greater confidence. With several variants, Juvederm offers several options for patients.

Restylane enhances your skin’s collagen production while imbuing a youthful symmetry to your complexion.
Belotero is an FDA-approved filler that contours the face for a lively, more refreshed appearance. It uses hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient so it is rarely rejected by patients.

Are injectable fillers for me?

Injectable fillers offer many options to common -- and uncommon -- cosmetic complaints. No single injectable filler is the same; each has a specific purpose and use. Our injectables in Worcester and Boston, MA with Dr. Montilla allows you to be treated by a medical professional with an exceptional level of knowledge of the array of dermal fillers, and who is gifted with natural artistry.
How do you determine where to place injectable fillers?
Our injectable filler treatments are performed with a delicate and meticulous approach. Our understanding of how the fillers work allows Dr. Montilla to create a treatment plan that is targeted with the specific product and precise amount to create the look you want. Injectable fillers should only be administered by a top professional. In the hands of less-skilled injectors, you risk a result that looks overfilled or unnatural. If you are considering injectable fillers, always ensure you are receiving treatment from a board-certified practitioner, as you will find in Dr. Montilla.
What can I expect with treatment?
Injectable fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that can be done in under an hour at a luxury, relaxing clinic, where we cater to you in every way. The injections are carefully placed using very thin needles to reduce discomfort. Some of the products are formulated with a mild anesthetic, but if you feel that the pain may be unpleasant, a topical anesthetic can be administered before treatment to keep you comfortable, especially in sensitive areas such as in and around the lips.
What is the recovery time?
The recovery time is minimal. You may experience slight swelling in or around the injection sites. This is normal and will not last long. For those with very sensitive skin, there may be mild bruising or visible injection marks. These will also disappear rapidly. You can apply an ice pack to help with swelling and bruising, natural remedies such as Arnica can be used to speed your recovery.
How long do injectable fillers last?
Injectable fillers can last anywhere from three months to two years, depending on the product. Some products have the added benefit of triggering natural collagen production for more supple, youthful skin. Some fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma, are thicker, used to enhance cheek volume, with results that can last up to two years. The beauty of our injectables in Boston is they can be touched up to help maintain your look. Though injectable fillers cannot defeat the aging process, as a minimally invasive procedure, they can certainly aid in slowing it down.
