Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

 

If you would like to restore youthfulness to your face, plump thin lips, and soften facial creases and lines then dermal fillers may be for you. *This minimally invasive procedure has been called “liquid facelift” because fillers offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

*Sometimes dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of BOTOX®, chemical peels, microdermabrasion or Fraxel® skin resurfacing.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Juvéderm®, Perlane®, Restylane®, and Belotero® are made from a material called hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists in the skin. As we age, there is less hyaluronic acid, which creates unwanted wrinkles and folds. When injected into the skin with a small needle, hyaluronic acid binds water molecules. It in essence “fills in” wrinkles and folds and corrects volume loss.

    Radiesse® is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is found naturally in human bones. This mineral-like compound is used to fill the deepest creases and is also used to enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours. Over time, Radiesse® stimulates the body to produce collagen naturally. Ultimately, the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for great results.

    • Smile lines/nasolabial folds: lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
    • Marionette lines: lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth

  • Fillers are used to fill wrinkles and add volume to the face. BOTOX® relaxes muscles and is mostly used on the upper face. Many people get both.

  • First your provider will listen to your desired results and evaluate the appearance of your skin. The areas to be injected will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied to numb the area if desired. Some dermal fillers include an anesthetic in the mixture. The actual injections will take a few minutes. Afterwards you will be offered ice packs to reduce any discomfort and swelling.

  • As with any injection, you may experience side effects such as mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site, which typically resolves in a few days. Remember not to rub the treated area so that the filler material remains undisturbed.

  • Almost immediately, but maximum results may take two weeks.

  • The way your face continues to age and how your body absorbs fillers will determine the timing of repeat treatments. It lasts between six and twelve months.

  • Your provider can help you determine which filler is right for you at your consultation. It depends on the area you are interested in treating and desired outcome.
