Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases, and/or enhance facial contours.
While dermal fillers are often referred to as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles. Here are a few of the common facial enhancements that dermal fillers can make:
• Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks, under eyes, and temples
• Diminish vertical lip lines
• Plump & enhance the lips
• Smooth out chin creases
• Improve symmetry among facial features
Whether you are looking to improve the fullness of your features or eliminate your lines and wrinkles—during your initial consult, our highly skilled providers will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your needs. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
The procedure itself generally takes between 15 and 45 minutes depending on what you are having done. If you are concerned about pain, we can apply a topical numbing agent before we begin the injections.
Recovery time is minimal. But, individuals are advised to avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours post treatment.
You can expect some swelling and bruising. Other common side effects include: redness, tenderness, and itching.
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, last an average of 6-9 months, but we generally do have our patients come in before then for a post op visit to make sure that the treatment has been successful.
