Injectable Fillers in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL
Injectable fillers are popular because they offer quick and long-lasting results. Although injectable fillers are FDA-approved, in the wrong hands these treatments can cause unexpected results and even long-lasting damage. If you live in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding areas of Florida and are interested in injectable fillers, you feel confident in choosing Dr. Dean G. Davis, a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
An injectable filler is a minimally-invasive treatment for the restoration of smoother, more youthful skin. Depending on the specific injectable filler, the results of the treatment normally last up to one year. Dr. Davis may advise this treatment as a single treatment or in combination with surgery. Injectable fillers can also temporarily produce similar results as surgery.
Because the treatment is minimally-invasive, there is no downtime involved. The recovery process is very quick, and you should be able to resume your normal activities soon after your treatment.
Injectable Fillers Benefits
Treatment with injectable fillers normally takes under one hour, with no downtime. Some cases necessitate more than one treatment, but your results will be noticeable after just one treatment.

Injectable Fillers Treatment Process
First, fillers are injected into the areas of your skin where you have fine lines and wrinkles. The fine lines require treatment to the outer layers of your skin while deeper ones are treated in underlying skin layers. Very fine needles are used to administer the fillers, so you may experiencing a stinging sensation when the needle is inserted into your skin. Most patients experience very little discomfort and do not require topical anesthesia.
Injectable Fillers Preparation
No special preparation is required for injectable fillers treatment. Just be prepared to set aside about one hour for your treatment.
Treatments with injectable fillers are fast, easy and painless. In some rare cases, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the sites of the injections. Rest will not be required after your treatment; simply continue your day as you normally would.
How Much Does The Treatment Cost?
The cost of the treatment varies, depending upon the individual needs of the patient. Since injectable fillers treatment is considered to be an elective procedure by insurance companies, it is not normally covered by an insurance policy. However, financing is available using CareCredit® to help you with the costs of the treatment. You can pay by major credit card, personal check or cash.
