Dermal Fillers

Our practice has a wide array of Dermal Fillers, we do not favor one particular brand over another. Our experienced injector will select the most appropriate dermal filler catered to your specific facial features/structure to accomplish the desired results. No two faces are alike, and everyone’s treatment is tailored to their specific needs to produce a beautiful and natural result.



Hyaluronic Acid (HA), widely known as “fillers” is a sugar molecule naturally produced by our body and helps to bind water to collagen. One hyaluronic acid molecule can hold water 1000x its weight in moisture. As we age, we start losing collagen and elastin which causes a cascade of constant depletion in hyaluronic acid. The best examples are lip augmentation & facial injections. Many Hyaluronic Acid fillers can be injected under the skin to instantly smooth lines, and deep wrinkles, improve volume, and restore a more youthful, rested rejuvenated look.

Substances used in types of dermal fillers include:

  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite. A mineral-like compound found in bones.

  • Hyaluronic Acid. Found in some fluids and tissues in the body that add plumpness to the skin.

  • Polyalkylimide. A transparent gel that is compatible with the body.

  • Poly l lactic acid. Stimulates the skin to make more collagen.

  • Polymethyl-methacrylate Microspheres. A semi-permanent filler.

Dermal Fillers Vs Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting is a technique that involves taking fat from one area of the body and injecting it into another area to add volume. This method can also be used to address signs of aging, such as wrinkles or hollows. On the other hand, dermal fillers are gels that are injected directly beneath the skin in order to provide volume and a “plump” look to areas of the face.

Who Is an Ideal Dermal Filler Candidate?

Those wanting to diminish deeper wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow areas on the face can reap rewards from injectable dermal fillers. It is an excellent choice for those hoping for a subtle revamp without opting in for surgery or taking time off due to recovery. Fillers are ideal if you’re looking at enhancing a certain area of your face while still avoiding drastic alterations that come with surgical procedures.

To identify if you are the ideal client for a dermal filler procedure, we’ll evaluate your treatment goals along with factors such as age, genetics, and skin quality.

How Do I Prepare for a Dermal Filler (Lip & Face) Treatment?

Prior to your treatment, approximately 7-10 days beforehand, you should forgo any blood thinning medications such as aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen or Aleve. Simultaneously abstain from taking supplements like St. John’s Wort and Gingko Biloba in addition to garlic, ginseng and Vitamin E during the same period of time.

To prepare for your visit, abstain from applying any topical treatments such as tretinoin, retinol, retinoids, glycolic acid or anti-aging products. In addition, avoid waxing, bleaching tweezing and other hair removal techniques. Moreover, don’t consume alcohol within 24 hours of the appointment to ensure optimal results; arrive at the clinic with a clean face free from makeup.

What Takes Place Before a Dermal Filler Treatment?

Before you decide if you wanted to inject dermal fillers, it’s essential to consult with your healthcare provider. During the consultation, they’ll critically inspect your face and inquire about what areas of improvement you hope to achieve as well as discuss any desired outcomes.

Your healthcare provider will make a visual notation with a pen or marker on your face to indicate where the injections should be administered. They may also take photographs of your facial area prior to treatment. Afterwards, they will discuss any potential side effects and estimated recovery time with you in detail.

During this visit, your medical provider will also go over your history of health. It is critical to share with them all medications that you are currently taking since some drugs can cause complications after the filler procedure. Provide information about: any allergies; past bruising or bleeding from similar techniques; neurological issues; and skin conditions in order for them to tailor a plan best suited for you.

What Takes Place During a Dermal Filler Treatment?

Enhance your lip appearance with the help of lip filler treatments, administered safely and comfortably in either a healthcare provider’s office or medical spa! Your physician will begin by cleansing your skin before applying an anesthetic cream or lotion to numb the area. This allows you to experience virtually painless injections so that you can achieve results quickly and easily.

Utilizing a thin needle, your healthcare professional will inject only small amounts of injectable fillers beneath the dermis. Although you may feel some pinch or sting from each injection, most people report minimal discomfort throughout the procedure. Depending on desired results, injections can take place in multiple locations and usually lasts anywhere between several minutes to an hour for completion.

What Takes Place After a Dermal Filler Treatment?

After the dermal filler injections, your healthcare provider will thoroughly cleanse your skin. Furthermore, to alleviate any pain or swelling that may arise from the procedure, they may provide you with a soothing ice pack.

Although you may have some minor bruises, swelling, or discomfort following your injections, these side effects are typically short-lived and dissipate within a few days.

Results from these injections will vary depending on the type of treatment received, but many experience immediate improvement. Everyone’s results are unique and depend on a range of factors; however, it can help give you an idea as to how long your results may last.
