Dermal Fillers & Injectables in Atlanta, GA
With age, wrinkles and fine lines can seem impossible to avoid. As we lose our skin’s ability to regenerate, remain elastic and fight damage from free radicals and the sun, we begin to see increasing symptoms of the aging process. Our skin loses its structure and begins to fold on itself, causing creases and wrinkles. For decades, we’ve tried to restore a youthful appearance by using creams or cosmetic surgery. Now, modern technology has found a solution for aging skin that is non-surgical, but maximally effective. Neurotoxins (such as Botox® and Dysport®) and injectable dermal fillers are two options that can work in combination or separately to improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, creases and sunken facial areas. Injectable dermal fillers can also be used to augment facial structures, such as the cheeks or lips, to give a fuller, more youthful appearance. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., offers dermal fillers and injectables for men and women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers are solutions injected into the skin through specialized, small hypodermic needles. The solutions are administered by a medical professional to help plump the skin to diminish the appearance of creased or sagging skin. These injections are safe, FDA-approved and result in no scarring. Some of our most popular injectable filler options include Juvederm®, Sculptra® and Radiesse®, which can be used to treat wrinkles and loss of volume without the need for invasive surgeries.
How Do I Know If I’m A Good Candidate for an Injectable Filler Procedure?
Injectable fillers are a practical solution for men and women who want to restore a youthful appearance to the face. Because it is a safe procedure with minimal side effects, most individuals qualify as strong candidates. This procedure is most effective in individuals generally in good health and with realistic expectations about the results. If you’re unsure of your candidacy for injectable fillers, contact our office to learn more or to schedule an initial consultation.

What Will Happen During A Consultation For Injectable Fillers?
Dr. Work appreciates the opportunity to meet with each client before an injectable filler appointment. At the initial consultation, Dr. Work will listen to your goals for the treatment, current concerns and will answer any questions you may have about fillers. Dr. Work will also discuss with you the exact cost for your desired treatment and prepare you for the procedure by learning your current medication list, medical history and more.

Will I Receive Anesthesia For My Injectable Filler Procedure?
Depending on the location and extent of the fillers, our clients will be administered a topical anesthetic, local anesthetic or numbing gel before receiving any injections.
How Are Injectable Fillers Performed?
This is a fast and painless procedure which involves nothing more than a series of injections just under the skin with a fine needle. Location of the injections is dependent upon the targeted skin concern, but in most cases, the injections are close together and have minimal bleeding.
How Long Does The Procedure For An Injectable Filler Last?
Injectable filler appointments are sometimes called “lunchtime appointments” because they can be performed so quickly and with no downtime. Most patients will be in and out of our office in just 45 minutes, ready to continue the day. While appointments do not last long, it is sometimes recommended to schedule multiple appointments to make the fillers most effective and long-lasting.
How Much Pain Can I Expect From The Injectable Filler Procedure?
You should expect no pain during the injectable filler procedure. We use numbing agents and anesthetic depending on the site of the injections because your comfort is our priority.
What Should I Expect Of The Recovery After My Injectable Filler Procedure?
Recovery after injectable fillers is minimal. You may notice some slight swelling or redness for a day or two, but it quickly dissipates and you can enjoy the positive results of your procedure with no side effects or recovery.
Should I Plan To Take Time Off From Work After My Injectable Filler Procedure?
This is not at all necessary for injectable filler appointments, as there is no recovery. Many of our clients return to work following the appointment and find no disruption in daily life.
Will My Injectable Filler Procedure Be Covered By Insurance?
Because injectable fillers are only used to treat cosmetic issues, it is unlikely the procedure would be covered by insurance. With this in mind, our office offers payment options on cosmetic procedures. Call today to learn more about our convenient financing plans.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers And Injectables Cost In Atlanta?
There is no one set cost for dermal fillers because the procedure varies among clients. For specific pricing on an injectable filler treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Work today. On all procedures, the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery accepts personal checks, cash and credit cards. You may also be able to obtain financing through our specialized programs.
How Long Can I Expect The Results Of My Injectable Filler Procedure To Last?
The time of effectiveness for injectable fillers varies depending on the solution and location of the injections. However, all fillers are temporary and should not be considered a permanent solution. We recommend regular maintenance appointments at pre-planned intervals to ensure long-term results with minimal inconvenience. Most of our injectable fillers last anywhere from six months to two years, but Dr. Work can give you a specific estimate at the consultation.
