What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an injection of hyaluronic acid under the skin to provide a plumping effect to areas that have lost fullness or need contouring such as cheeks, wrinkles, creases, or lips. As we age, we lose fat in certain areas causing the skin to look loose or sunken. Dermal fillers help “fill in” those areas to maintain a youthful plump appearance to the skin. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid- which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. The hyaluronic acid combines with the water molecules in your skin to provide a natural-looking plumping effect, and to restore fullness in the skin. Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical treatment option. Dermal fillers are administered with a fine needle, injected directly to the desired area.

Types of Dermal Fillers

What Can I Expect After my Dermal Filler Treatment?*

Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical and minimally invasive option. Topical anesthetic cream may be applied to the injection site, to minimize discomfort. Every client is different, so your experience may vary. Typically, you may notice some bruising, slight swelling, or tenderness of the area treated. Results also vary- depending on the treatment area and product used, results could last from 4 months to 1 year.

Where Can Dermal Fillers be Injected?

Typically, dermal fillers are used in the facial area. To see if dermal fillers can be used to address your problem area, please ask us in your consultation.
