Dermal Fillers

Pop in to plump up

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use substances like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate to smooth wrinkles, plump up facial features and restore volume in your face.

Our fillers can effectively address concerns like sagging skin, asymmetry, thin lips and cheeks, and deep wrinkles. The procedure involves injections that may cause temporary discomfort but require minimal recovery time. Results are often noticeable immediately and can last from several months to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used and location where it is injected.

Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?

You may be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you:

  • are in good physical health
  • have realistic goals and expectations for their treatment
  • are committed to maintaining good skin health

Dermal fillers may be especially beneficial if you want to:

  • add volume to areas of deflation in the face
  • improve facial symmetry
  • plump up your lips or cheeks
  • smooth out wrinkles and creases on your face

Dermal fillers are not recommended if you:

  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • have a history of bleeding disorders
  • have a history of keloid scarring
  • have an active skin infection
  • are taking certain medications, such as blood thinners or anticoagulants

If you’re considering dermal fillers, it’s important to consult your doctor to discuss your individual needs and determine if this treatment is right for you.

What to expect

Before your treatment

  • You'll have a consultation to review your medical history, current medications, drug allergies and use of vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
  • Your doctor will evaluate your general health status, including any pre-existing health conditions and risk factors.
  • You’ll discuss goals and expectations and learn available options.
  • Your provider will examine your face and take photographs.
  • He or she will recommend a course of treatment and may mark your face to indicate where the injections will be administered.

During your treatment

  • Your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area.
  • Your provider will use a thin needle to inject small amounts of filler into your skin.
  • The injections may cause a pinching or stinging sensation.
  • The entire process usually takes less than an hour.

After your treatment

  • Your skin will be cleansed and you may be given an ice pack to reduce swelling.
  • You may experience bruising, swelling or discomfort after the injections. These side effects are usually mild and go away within a few days.
  • You can resume most of your normal activities immediately, but your provider may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise or physical activity for a day or two.
  • The results of your treatment may be visible immediately, but it can take up to a few weeks for the full effects to develop.
  • Depending on the type of filler used and where it is injected in the face, results can last from several months a year or more.

Benefits of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers provide a number of benefits that can enhance your overall appearance and quality of life.

  • Improved self-image. Dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and scars, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance so you can feel more confident and self-assured in work and social settings.
  • Enhanced facial features. When used to add volume to your lips, cheeks and temples, fillers can help create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. This effect can result in a more youthful and attractive look.
  • Long-lasting results. Providing results lasting up to several months to a year or longer, depending on the type of filler used and location it is injected, fillers let you enjoy your refreshed look without requiring frequent touch-ups or repeat treatments.
