Injectable fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are designed to restore lost volume and give the face a more defined contour.
Choosing an experienced injector who is up-to-date on the latest techniques and safety protocols is essential. With dermal fillers, you can achieve incredible results with very little down time – making them an increasingly popular choice for men and women who want to look their best without undergoing surgical procedures.
What can fillers help with?
Dermal fillers are an extremely versatile treatment, which can be used to plump lips, smooth wrinkles and folds, fill in under-eye hollows, add volume to cheeks, reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars, and sculpt the jawline. Fillers can also be used on hands and buttocks. The results of dermal fillers will last for several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used.
Are there any risk factors?
Because dermal fillers are made of substances that are similar to the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, they are considered relatively safe. However, as with any injection, there is always a risk of infection and bruising. In rare cases, dermal fillers can also cause allergic reactions. Typically, these reactions are mild and can be treated with over-the-counter medication. However, in rare cases, they can be severe and require emergency medical treatment.
What happens during a consultation?
During a consultation, our providers will assess your aesthetic goals and determine whether dermal fillers are an appropriate treatment. We will also explain the different types of dermal fillers available and how they work. The consultation is an important opportunity to ask questions and learn more about dermal fillers so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not they are right for you.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
1) We will first assess your areas of concern and determine whether this treatment is appropriate for you.
2) Before treatment, your skin is cleansed and a numbing cream may be applied for comfort. The treatment area is marked and sterilized.
3) Dermal filler is injected using a fine needle or cannula, with precise control over depth and amount. You may experience slight pressure or a mild pinching sensation during the injections.
4) The injector continuously assesses your response and monitors filler distribution, often massaging the area for a smooth outcome.
5) Dermal fillers yield immediate results, enhancing volume, smoothness, and contour. However, initial swelling and bruising may temporarily mask the final outcome.
Dermal fillers work by replenishing lost volume and stimulating collagen production. The gel-like substance restores volume, resulting in a more youthful, contoured, and rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers can be used to address various areas of the face, including nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, lips, cheeks, under-eye hollows, and chin. They can also be used to improve the appearance of scars and enhance facial symmetry.
When administered by qualified professionals, dermal fillers are generally considered safe. It’s important to choose a reputable provider and discuss any potential risks or side effects during your consultation.
The duration of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of filler used, the area treated, and individual factors. Typically, results can last from several months to a couple of years. Maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the desired outcome.
Dermal filler treatments are minimally invasive, and most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately. Some temporary side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising may occur but usually subside within a few days.
