At both our Vancouver, WA and Tigard, OR med spas near Portland, fillers are one of our favorite tools for helping people like you achieve facial balancing and bring out the very best in their gorgeous faces. It’s pretty amazing the difference these dermal fillers can make in just a matter of minutes!

And if you’re worried about looking pillowy or not like you, don’t be: Our team carefully places small quantities of fillers to rejuvenate your look and enhance your natural beauty.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that add volume beneath your skin, mimicking subdermal fat or bone. As you age, you lose fat, bone, and the collagen that keeps your skin structured. With dermal fillers, you can fight some of the physical effects of the aging process. Along with BOTOX®, fillers are one of the most popular ways to rejuvenate your look.

And fillers aren’t just for anti-aging. If you’re looking to boost your natural contours, define your features, and elevate your look to a new level, they can help there, too!


What Are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Fillers in the JUVÉDERM and Restylane families are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a hydrating natural substance that attracts water and naturally dissolves over time. These products come in various thicknesses to target different areas of the face.

At our Vancouver and Tigard med spas we also use Sculptra®, which contains poly-L-lactic acid and helps your body build its own collagen over time. It’s amazing for cheeks and for combatting significant facial volume loss.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers work by adding volume to areas of the face that have lost elasticity and volume due to aging. They can also be used to enhance facial features, such as lips and cheeks, by replenishing lost volume and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.

Will I Look Natural After Getting Dermal Fillers?

When administered by skilled professionals, dermal fillers can create natural-looking results. A gradual approach and communication with your provider are key to achieving the desired outcome in facial balancing.

What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of areas including nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, lips, cheeks, under-eye hollows, chin, and jawline.

Are Dermal Filler Injections Painful?

Most dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Many people report only mild discomfort during injection, and any discomfort typically subsides quickly.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The duration of dermal filler results varies depending on the type of filler used and the treated area. On average, results can last from 6 months to 2 years. Follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain results.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Common side effects include mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites. These usually subside within a few days. Serious complications are rare but can include infection, allergic reactions, or lumps under the skin.

How Long is Recovery Time After Dermal Fillers?

Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s advised to avoid intense physical activity, alcohol, and excessive sun exposure for a day or two.

What Can Dermal Fillers Do?

Dermal fillers are highly versatile. While most people think of lip injections or cheek augmentation when they think of fillers, there are lots of different changes you can make with them. At Amélie, we offer the following menu of dermal filler services:

Perfect Pout

Perfect Pout makes your lips plump and soft. We’ll make sure your results look natural yet striking.

Feeling Cheeky

Feeling Cheeky is the perfect treatment to make your cheekbones pop or restore their youthful volume. 

Love Your Smile

Love Your Smile reduces the vertical lines above your lips and the smile lines on either side of your mouth.

Liquid Facelift

The Liquid Facelift is a comprehensive dermal filler treatment that restores a more youthful face shape. Your provider will work with you to customize the treatment and target specific features.

Youthful Hands

Unlike the other dermal filler packages, Youthful Hands restores volume in your hands instead of your face. If your hands look bony or aged, this is the filler treatment for you.

Neck Fillers

If you have permanent horizontal lines on your neck from staring downward at a computer all day, dermal fillers can reduce them. 


What Should I Expect During My Dermal Filler Treatment?

Filler treatments at Amélie typically last no longer than an hour. After talking over your goals with you, your experienced injector will carefully place the filler under your skin with a few quick injections. Then you’re done!


Be Real With Me: Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt?

When you arrive at your appointment, the team will give you numbing medication and ice to make sure you don’t feel uncomfortable during your treatment. They’ll also use distraction techniques to make the appointment go by quickly.


What Is Recovery Like After Dermal Fillers?

You’ll be free to jump back into your routine right away, though you may have some bruising, swelling, or redness around your injection sites for 1 to 2 weeks. We recommend booking your filler appointment at least 14 days before any big events where you’d like to show off your results.


How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Depending on the product, you can expect your results to last 9 months to 2 years. Your volume will gradually dissipate, and when you’re ready for another boost, you can come back in and see us for your next treatment!
