Cosmetic Dermal Fillers can be used on any part of the face, including the nose, mouth, and forehead. It is a non-surgical treatment that can plump hollow contours and folds, improve the appearance of acne scars, and augment lips.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

With age, the skin’s ability to retain moisture decreases, causing it to lose volume, fold, and wrinkle. Depending on the targeted area, dermal fillers can correct these problems in anywhere from a matter of seconds to a matter of minutes.

Note: Filling deep wrinkles and scars may require multiple injections. In these cases, a local anesthetic may need to be applied prior to treatment. Smile lines, laugh lines, and cheeks are the most common areas requiring deeper fillers.

Cosmetic Dermal Fillers In a Nutshell

  1. Topical anesthesia may be used to numb treatment area.
  2. Cosmetic dermal filler is injected strategically under the skin to plump and augment wrinkles and folds and restore volume and definition. The smooth consistency of cosmetic dermal filler allows for quick and easy application, with most procedures lasting only about 15 minutes.
  3. After the injection, treated areas are gently massaged.
  4. In the days following the procedure, reactions such as redness, bumps, swelling, and firmness may occur. Avoid sun exposure and strenuous activity that may cause perspiration. Consumption of alcohol is to be avoided, as it may exacerbate swelling, itching, and redness in the treated area.
