Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical treatment option for people who are looking to smoothen out deep wrinkles, facial folds, restore volume, add volume to lips and enhance contour/sculpt facial features. Dermal fillers are typically made of a sterile, non-animal cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid that feels like a gel like substance. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced your body and its synthetic form is naturally metabolized and fully reversible with an enzyme. Dermal fillers are injected under the skin with a very fine needle, producing natural appearing volume under winkles and folds which can be lifted and smoothed out. Results can often be seen immediately. Generally, dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid can last anywhere between 6-12 months depending on product type and metabolism. Dermal fillers are suitable for anyone over the legal age; typically, with the aging process and genetics many people will have a loss of volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposures, and other chronic conditions etc. (A full health history will be obtained for assessment of contraindications)
How Long Does it Take?
The dermal filler treatment typically takes about 30-60 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated and the amount of filler being used. During the treatment, our experienced injector will carefully inject the filler into the targeted area to enhance your natural features and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Is it Painful?
Most patients report that dermal filler treatments are not painful, although some discomfort or mild pain may be experienced during the injection process. We use a topical anesthetic cream or a injectable anesthetic and/or ice to numb the area before the injection, ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
Dermal filler treatments have minimal downtime and recovery time. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment, although it is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity or exercise for the first 24-48 hours after the treatment.
Dermal fillers are considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects. Some patients may experience temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically subside within a few days to a week after the treatment.
