EZ Filler FAQsMay 9th, 2012 | Posted by in Uncategorized
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers relating to EZ FILLER treatments.
What is EZ FILLER?
EZ FILLER treat wrinkles and lines and enhance lips. They contain a crystal-clear gel made from non-animal hyaluronic acid and water. The gel is a biotechnologically produced version of hyaluronic acid, a tissue friendly substance that occurs naturally in the body.
EZ FILLER are injected into your skin to fill lines and restore lost volume, enhancing your facial contours and lips for natural-looking results. They’re injected into deeper layers of skin at the site of sunken areas, creas, or scars to smooth and fill out the area for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
EZ FILLER create a natural beauty lift. EZ FILLER instantly enhance lips and diminish the effects of wrinkles and lines. They are not collagen and they are not a Muscle relaxing injection.
Can I be treated with EZ FILLER if my doctor also treats me with other treatment or injections?
Yes. Many different treatment are often used at the same time with EZ FILLER or Other Surgimedix Cosmetic products for an all-over smoothing of wrinkles and facial lines and restoring of lost volume. For example, BOTULAX (compare to Botox) treatment may be used at the same time with EZ FILLER may be better used to treat lines at the mouth area.
How often would I require EZ FILLER treatments?
Follow-up treatments are usually required to maintain the effect. For instance, collagen fillers can last three to 12 months, hyaluronic acid fillers typically last up to 12 months, semi-permanent fillers can last up to two years, and semi to permanent fillers are permanent.
Keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different; the timing of any additional wrinkle treatment will vary from person to person. When repeat treatments occur over time, either the interval between appointments becomes longer, or less product is required to achieve the same results, or more areas can be treated with the same amount of product.
When will I see treatment results?
After your initial EZ FILLER treatment, you should notice visible results immediately.
What is an average cost of a EZ FILLER treatment?
When compared with plastic surgery and cosmetic dentistry, EZ filler treatment with hyaluronic acid (HA) is quite affordable. Cost varies according to the amount of injection used (i.e., in spot treatments versus a full-face revolumizing).
Is a EZ FILLER treatment painful?
You may feel an initial sting, but only for a moment. Your physician may apply a local anaesthetic to numb the area prior to the procedure. This should help dull the sensation of being pricked during the injection. For more sensitive areas, your doctor may apply a dental anaesthetic or local anaesthetic. These may be applied topically or injected at the treatment site to numb the area prior to the procedure.
Are there side effects to the treatment?
Directly after the treatment, it’s completely normal to experience some minor and temporary effects such as stinging, discolouration, bruising, mild to moderate redness, and swelling.
If any of these symptoms last more than a day or two, be sure to tell your physician. There’s a small risk of sensitivity to the filler. If you have a history of cold sores, you may experience an outbreak of cold sores after treatment. This can be minimized by the use of antiviral medicines before treatment. To avoid other potential side effects, such as bacterial infection and lumps forming under the skin, make sure you have an experienced and knowledgeable physician.
How long does a EZ FILLER treatment take?
Hyaluronic acid and collagen treatments can usually be carried out in 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated.
Will there be any downtime after treatment?
Most people find that they can return to work or go about their normal daily activities immediately after treatment. If any bruising occurs, this can be covered up with makeup. If more extensive areas are treated, recovery may take a few hours if there is swelling and the bruising may last for a few days.
Who are the best candidates for EZ FILLER treatments?
Good candidates for this procedure include those with deep facial lines or scars, a hallowing of facial features due to fat loss, and those who wish to enhance the size and/or shape of their lips.

Why are EZ FILLER described as a natural beauty treatment?
EZ FILLER contain Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA ), which is the basis of SURGIMEDIX, INC. products. Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in our bodies. Its most important function is to carry and bind water. The crystal-clear gel is injected into the skin to smooth wrinkles and lines, enhance lips and facial contours creating a natural beauty lift.
It is the stabilisation process of the hyaluronic acid that makes EZ FILLER unique and ensures that treatments are long lasting.
Nutrients, oxygen and hormones are able to pass freely between the crystal clear gel particles, leaving the skin natural and healthy looking. As the gel breaks down, water takes its place and when totally absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body.
What does the EZ FILLER treatment involve?
EZ FILLER are injected into the skin in tiny quantities using a very fine needle.
The gel gives natural volume and smoothes wrinkles and lines or plumps out lips.
The EZ FILLER treatment is very quick and often takes less than 30 minutes.
No skin test is required because EZ FILLER do not contain any animal derived ingredients, unlike other hyaluronic acid based fillers.
Will the EZ FILLER treatment hurt?
Some people may experience the EZ FILLER treatment as uncomfortable. A local anaesthetic cream is often used when treating wrinkles. Another form of anaesthesia, a dental block, is sometimes used when enhancing lips to numb the area being treated.
What areas can be treated with EZ FILLER?
EZ FILLER treatments can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, enhancing lips and shaping facial contours. It is a subtle approach to maintaining natural looks.
How long does the treatment EZ FILLER effect last?
One of the great advantages of EZ FILLER is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent.
- Lines, wrinkles and folds: follow-up treatment is usually needed after 6-12 months
- Lips: follow-up treatment is usually needed after about 6 months
However, duration depends on many factors, such as skin type, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded by the patient and the injection technique of the practitioner.
You keep talking about an acid, does this mean it burns?
No. Hyaluronic acid is a form of sugar molecule (polysaccharide) that occurs naturally in both humans and animals. The word acid is used in the biological sense, as in a type of protein, in the same way doctors talk about DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid).
How can I improve my lips?
EZ FILLER can be used to increase the definition of the lip line, vermilion border, where the lip turns from red to white. It is also effective in defining the philtrum ridges, the two ridges just above the middle part of your upper lip.
The lower lip tends to have more volume than the upper lip and therefore it may not be necessary to treat it. You should discuss your exact requirements and expectations for your treatment with the nurse or doctor at your initial consultation.
When discussing lip treatments, why does the doctor need to know if I have suffered in the past from cold sores?
Prior to lip enhancement, it is important for the clinician to know if you have had cold sores recently or have experienced problems with cold sores in the past. This is because the cold sore virus can lie dormant in the lips and as such will not cause any problems. However by injecting the lips, the needle can stimulate the virus back into activity again and as a result cold sores can erupt at the injection sites.
Being prone to cold sores does not necessarily mean that the sores will automatically re-emerge after the EZ FILLER treatment but there is a risk that this might happen. This risk needs to be discussed fully with the doctor during your initial consultation. It is important to remember that hyaluronic acid gel does not cause cold sores in its own right.
What are the risks of side effects from the EZ FILLER treatment?
Some common injection-related reactions might occur after a EZ FILLER injection. These reactions include redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site. They typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days after treatment; however theses reactions very rarely may take longer to resolve.
Adverse reactions are very rare with incidences of hypersensitivity put at less than 1 in 2,000.
What happens to my treated skin in the sun or in the cold?
The treated areas must not be exposed to intense heat or extreme cold for the first few days after treatment. This is to avoid risk of inflammation since the area has been disturbed. The gel will not harden or soften as outside temperatures change. Saunas and steam rooms should also be avoided for the first few days after the EZ FILLER treatment.
How can I justify spending money on my looks?
