What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to achieve your cosmetic goals, whether it’s to reduce nasolabial folds and marionette lines, boost lip volume, or plump the midface contours. There are literally dozens of uses for dermal fillers, including use in a liquid facelift or non-surgical rhinoplasty. Facial fillers are often combined with neuromodulators and surgical procedures to enhance and refine results. 

Many fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound that binds with water molecules. When injected, HA-based fillers help provide a more supple, hydrated complexion that is youthful and radiant. 

One of the major advantages of dermal fillers is that patients can come into the office on their lunch break and walk out 30 minutes later feeling and looking fabulous. Fillers do not require any downtime or recovery, and results can last 6-18 months.

Facial Filler FAQs

Can dermal fillers be combined with other treatments?

Yes! Dermal fillers address static lines while neuromodulators like BOTOX target dynamic lines. Thus, the two treatments are often paired together to achieve comprehensive anti-aging outcomes. Dermal fillers can also help refine and enhance surgical outcomes after a facelift, blepharoplasty, or brow lift.

Is the treatment painful?

Thanks to our ultra-thin needles, many clients aren’t even aware that their treatment has already been completed! If desired, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin prior to injections. Additionally, some fillers come with built-in lidocaine that numbs the skin automatically.

How long will my results last?

Results with dermal fillers are always temporary, but some formulations provide longer-lasting changes than others. You can expect your results to last anywhere from 6-18 months on average, depending on the products you choose.
