What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to help smooth lines, restore volume, and enhance facial features. They are a non-surgical cosmetic option that can temporarily lessen the signs of aging, restoring your self-confidence. The compounds used in dermal fillers vary, but many are made from hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid. These substances are safe and FDA-approved.

What concerns can be addressed with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Volume loss
  • Under-eye circles
  • Sunken cheekbones
  • Deflated, depleted lips
  • Marionette lines and nasolabial folds 
  • Loss of youthfulness in the hands

What can I expect during my session?

Every treatment begins with a detailed consultation to determine the best products for addressing your unique concerns. During your session, your skilled provider will numb your skin and then inject your chosen filler just under the surface to plump up wrinkles, smooth lines, and restore facial volume. After treatment, patients may notice minor swelling, bruising, temporary numbness, or redness. These symptoms fade quickly, however, with patients resuming normal activities right away.

Ideal candidates have positive, realistic expectations for their results based on their detailed consultation with our knowledgeable providers. Those frustrated by lines, wrinkles, creases, volume loss, asymmetry, and other aesthetic imperfections may obtain impressive results with facial fillers.

After receiving dermal filler injections, it is important to follow your practitioner’s instructions to ensure the best results and reduce the risk of complications.

Patients may experience minor swelling, bruising, numbness, or redness in the treated areas immediately after their sessions.

To minimize these side effects, patients should avoid touching or massaging the injection site and use over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen if necessary. Most side effects should dissipate within 7-10 days. Patients should also avoid using large makeup during the initial healing stage. Results usually last 6-18 months.
