The Science Behind Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are typically made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in your skin. HA is partially responsible for skin fullness and elasticity. You may even notice this ingredient in many of your skincare products!
The HA found in dermal fillers hydrates and plumps at the same time, restoring lost volume, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or enhancing facial features, such as the lips or chin.
How It Works
The Treatment Process
You’ll meet with a doctor for an in-depth consultation before your treatment to ensure facial fillers are the best solution for your goals. We’ll examine your skin and discuss your desired results. This conversation allows us to recommend the perfect amount and filler brand aligned with your needs.
For the treatment, your doctor will prep your skin as needed, which can include topical numbing creams. Your treatment plan will include the type of filler used and a predetermined amount. Your skilled injector will ensure your comfort throughout the injection process
Frequently Asked Questions
In preparation for your filler treatment, you should avoid medications that can create bruising, including:
- Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or naproxen
- St. John’s Wort
- High doses of Vitamin E or Omega 3 fatty acid supplements
Your doctor will provide information on pre and post-care instructions prior to treatment.
You may experience light bruising or swelling after treatment; you may use a cold compress to help these effects.
You must avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours, touching the treated area, and exposure to heat to minimize the chances of inflammation.
A single dermal filler treatment can provide results that last up to 6 months. An additional touch-up treatment after 3 months can extend results to 1 year or longer. We recommend follow-up treatments to enjoy your results for years to come.
Dermal fillers pair well with Botox treatments as well as laser skin resurfacing. For a customized treatment plan, visit us for an in-person consultation or use our procedure match tool.
