Is your face feeling a little flat, a little saggy, or a little tired?

As we age, we lose fat (or volume) in our faces. Many of the visible signs of aging are a direct result of this volume loss.  As facial tissues thin out, lines are etched around the nose and mouth, and our cheeks begin to look hollow. Dermal fillers replace lost volume to plump thin lips, smooth wrinkles, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, and improve the appearance of scars.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers can restore the fullness common to youthful skin. Facial changes caused by fat loss underneath the skin will not respond to treatments like BOTOX alone. For these issues, we use dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Volbella® add volume underneath the skin. Dermal fillers are particularly effective in the depressions around the corners of the mouth and cheekbones. There are many different filler options, and often we will use a combination of different fillers in different areas to get the results you are looking for. optimal correction.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Most dermal fillers last anywhere from 9 to 12 months, depending upon how the patient responds and which areas we are treating. Some of the newer fillers have produced results that last 15 to 18 months.

potential side effects
. Dr. Purewal will take time to talk with you about any potential side effects before you determine whether dermal fillers are right for you, and which fillers will provide optimal results based on your goals and skin type.

Yes. It’s important to understand that you aren’t going to get facelift results from a non-surgical treatment such as dermal fillers.

FAQ: Dermal Fillers


What are injectable fillers?

Injectable fillers can fill in wrinkle lines, furrows, and contour cheekbones, chins, noses and jawlines. They can also volumize cheeks and plump up lips. Fillers can be derived from natural materials (like hyaluronic acid that is present in every living organism) or from synthetic materials (like poly lactic acid that is in Sculptra).

What should I expect to look like immediately after?

Fillers have an immediate effect. You will see improvement before you leave the office. There may be some swelling which accentuates the effect of the filler, but this is usually gone within a day or so. Depending on the area treated, there may be bruising that can last on average 1-2 days. Ice packs can help minimize bruising and swelling along with Arnike Forte. Make-up can be applied the day after treatment to camouflage bruising.

What should I avoid after being treated with injectable fillers?

Both 1-2 weeks before and for several days after treatment, avoid anything that may thin the blood such as aspirin, aleve, ibuprofen, and fish oils. Do your best to not lay on your face. Wait 2 weeks to before getting a facial or a dental appointment. No make-up can be applied over the area injected on the day of your treatment, however, it may be worn again the next day.

How long will results last?

Depending on which filler is used on which part of the face, it can last from 3 months to 2 years.
