Dermal Fillers – Commonly Asked Questions

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are rapidly becoming a popular choice for temporary aesthetic beauty goals.

What Is Filler Made of?

Cosmetic fillers consist of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar-based molecule that occurs naturally within the human body and is an essential element of healthy-looking skin. It helps hydrate and adds volume to the skin. It is naturally broken down by our own bodies. Hyaluronic acid is so important to the skin that approximately 50% of the HA in our bodies is contained within our skin.

What are the Benefits of Fillers?

There are many! Aging may affect us all in different ways, however, almost everyone experiences general changes in the appearance of their skin and face. You may begin to show more wrinkles and fine lines, thinning of the lips, as well as a reduction in the volume and fullness of your face due to muscle and fat loss.

Fillers are an excellent way to negate these changes, creating volume in susceptible areas, providing a fuller-looking contour of the face and a more youthful, healthy appearance.

What Body Parts Can be Treated?

The most common areas patients receive dermal fillers are areas of the face, including:

  • Temples
  • Cheek Shaping
  • Tear Troughs
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Peri-Oral Wrinkles
  • Smokers Lines
  • Lips
  • Marionette Lines
  • Mental Crease
  • Jowls
  • Jaw Sculpting
  • Chin Elongation
  • Neck Wrinkles
  • Hand Wrinkles
  • Chest Wrinkles

They can also be used for other areas of the body such as the abdomen and buttocks.

How Long do the Results Last?

Fillers are a great option for those who want lasting results that are not permanent! Fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on a range of unique factors including:

  • Patient’s Age
  • Area Treated
  • Brand and Type of Filler
  • General Lifestyle

Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt?

Not a lot. Local anesthetic can be applied to the injection area to make the treatment a more comfortable experience. Although everyone’s pain threshold is different, most patients only experience mild discomfort during the procedure that quickly dissipates.

Is There any Downtime?

No. Patients are able to return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure. The only consideration is that you may experience minor swelling or bruising following your procedure. If you’re hoping to have this procedure done before a major event, it’s best to schedule your procedure several days prior to the event.

Do Dermal Fillers Have any Risks or Side effects?

Typically speaking, dermal fillers are safe

when performed by a reputable and trained professional. You want to be sure that quality product is being used and applied by a trained hand. Common side effects are:

  • Redness & Swelling
  • Bruising & Tenderness
  • Itching

The side effects are typically very mild, very normal, and should disappear within 7 days, at the most. Other side effects can occur but are very rare.

Do Dermal Fillers Look Natural?

Yes, they can! Fillers are designed to restore and replace lost volume and fullness, particularly in areas of the face that are susceptible to the signs of aging. Fillers are not meant to drastically alter your facial appearance, rather, in the hands of an experienced practitioner, the results simply enhance one’s natural facial features.
