What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-based products that are injected into soft tissue to correct lines and folds, add volume, restore youthful contours, and enhance facial symmetry.

They can be composed of several substances including hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero), calcium hydroxlapatite (Radiesse), and poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra).

What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

There is a significant amount of versatility in dermal filler application, and different products are able to address different concerns.

With that being said, dermal fillers are well-suited for:

  • Enhancing, augmenting, or defining lips
  • Lifting and volumizing cheeks
  • Filling under eye and temple hollows
  • Rejuvenating hands
  • Smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles, creases, and lines
  • Reshaping the nose
  • Modifying chin appearance
  • Augmenting and lifting buttocks

When Can You See Results from Dermal Fillers?

In most cases, dermal filler results are visible immediately after injection, but can continue to improve over the next several weeks.

With collagen stimulators like Radiessse and Sculptra, patients will experience both immediate and progressive effects.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

FDA-approved dermal fillers have an excellent safety profile and minimal risks.

Nevertheless, it’s important for patients to ensure that they are being treated by a qualified and experienced injector.

What Precautions Should I Take After Dermal Fillers?

After undergoing dermal fillers, patients are free to resume all activities and go about their day as they normally would. They may experience mild and temporary redness, swelling, and bruising, which usually resolve in several days.
