What Are Dermal Fillers?

There are a few different types of dermal fillers. The one that we favor, called Restylane, is a hyaluronic acid that we inject with the goal of addressing certain signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found within the human body that can help your skin to look plump and smooth. It also encourages the production of collagen and elastin, both of which are important for the skin’s structure.

Dermal fillers are different from BOTOX, which relaxes movement-based wrinkles. Fillers are more for filling in sagging, thin, and hollow-looking areas. It can also help to smooth out some wrinkles that are caused by gravity.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Usually, candidates for dermal fillers are in their late 20s or older. They can help to address a range of issues, including:

  • Thin lips
  • Marionette lines (the lines that travel from the mouth to the chin)
  • Lines at the corners of your mouth.
  • Pronounced nasolabial folds (the lines between your nose and mouth)

Most people who are interested in Restylane are good candidates for it. After a thorough screening, we will let you know whether we believe it is a fit for your situation and goals.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Do Dermal Fillers Have Side Effects?

Just like any procedure, there is the potential for side effects when getting dermal fillers. The most common ones include redness, swelling, discomfort, bruising, itching, or a rash – usually around the injection site. This can happen immediately but usually goes away within 7 to 14 days. Other, less common, side effects include discoloration at the injection site and firm lumps beneath the skin. This will generally resolve itself over time.

There are also rare side effects that are important to be aware of. They include leakage of the filler through the injection site, nodules around the injection site, granuloma, movement of the filler, injury to the blood vessel, and tissue death. If you have any concerns regarding side effects, or you think you are experiencing a rare side effect, give us a call right away so we can help.

What Happens If I Stop Getting Dermal Fillers?

With dermal fillers, people tend to think that their skin will become wrinkly or saggy if discontinued. Fortunately, this isn’t necessarily true. The effects of fillers wear off after months or years, but the treated areas normally return to their original state. The benefits of the fillers will disappear, and you will notice volume loss, but if you decide to get fillers again, you can experience the same youthful appearance as you did before. Just remember that aging causes you to lose more volume in your face, so if you notice more wrinkles and creases after you stop getting fillers, this is likely due to the normal aging process.

At What Age Can I Start to Get Dermal Fillers?

The FDA has approved dermal fillers for use in adults 22 years of age and older for specific use. However, it’s important to be aware that there are potential problems with getting fillers below the age of 25. For instance, using fillers too often at a young age can cause a patient to appear older. Dermal fillers are also not to be used as a “solution” to aging – nothing replaces adopting a skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle. It is also important to be aware of the risks of dermal filler so you can make an informed decision.

Do I Need a Consultation Before Getting Dermal Fillers?

Yes, if you are interested in dermal filler, you will need to attend a consultation so you can understand the process and how it works. You should be prepared to discuss your goals, medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments, medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol use, tobacco use, past dermal filler treatments, past BOTOX treatments, and any prior facial surgery. We will carefully explain your course of treatment, the expected results, and the longevity of your results. It’s important to us that all of our patients are making an informed decision.
