What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic treatment used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, diminish facial lines, and enhance facial contours. They are injectable substances and have become a popular choice for facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers offer a minimally invasive option for those seeking to diminish signs of aging or enhance facial features. these fillers are administered in a simple outpatient procedure with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. The treatment takes about an hour. After the procedure, patients might experience some swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort for up to a week. Follow-up injections are often needed to achieve the best results. The duration of the filler’s effects depends on the type of filler used and the specific wrinkles being treated. Top-quality facial fillers in the area are typically made from calcium hydroxyapatite, collagen, or hyaluronic acid, which help rejuvenate the skin. They work by filling in scar depressions, reducing wrinkles, and restoring volume lost due to aging. As we age, our skin tends to sag and wrinkle, partly due to years of facial expressions like smiling and squinting, and from thinning tissue. Excessive sun exposure is another factor that contributes to skin tissue breakdown.
How do dermal fillers work?
Facial fillers help increase hyaluronic acid in the skin, making it look younger by reducing wrinkles and adding fullness. This gives the skin a smoother and more natural look. Dermal filler treatments are a quick, non-surgical way to enhance your appearance and can often be done in just one quick visit to the office, making them great for people with busy lifestyle.

Consultation

Your appointment will likely start with a consultation. The practitioner will discuss your aesthetic goals, review your medical history, and explain the options available. They'll also address any questions or concerns you might have.

Facial Assessment and Mapping

The practitioner will examine your facial structure, skin tone, and the areas that need treatment. They might mark the specific sites on your face where the fillers will be injected.

Cleaning and Anesthetizing

The targeted areas will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort.

The Injection Process

Using fine needles or cannulas, the filler will be injected into the predetermined areas. You might feel a slight prick or pressure during this process. The practitioner may gently massage the areas to evenly distribute the filler.

Post-injection, you'll receive instructions on how to care for the treated areas. This may include avoiding strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and makeup for a certain period.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Facial Injections?

Facial injections are minimally invasive treatments used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restore facial volume, and enhance facial features. Common types include Botox/Dysport (neuromodulators) and dermal fillers.

Botox and Dysport are types of neuromodulators that temporarily relax facial muscles, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They’re commonly used for forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases, or enhance facial contours. They’re often made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin.

Most clients report only minor discomfort during the injection process, similar to a quick pinch. We can use a topical anesthetic to minimize pain.

The longevity of results varies. Botox/Dysport typically last 3-6 months, while the effects of dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to over a year, depending on the type of filler and the area treated.

There’s usually no significant downtime. You might experience minor swelling or bruising at the injection sites, but these typically resolve within a few days.
