What to Expect After Dermal Fillers

November 30, 2022


Have you noticed lost facial volume or deep lines and wrinkles? Dermal fillers can restore a more youthful appearance with no invasive procedures. They are used to enhance volume and smooth creases for a younger, more contoured look. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable materials that add volume when injected into or beneath the skin. Fillers come in many different formulas, so providers can pick the ideal one for each facial concern

Areas like the cheeks or deep creases require a dense, resilient filler, while lips or fine lines around the mouth or eyes need a softer, more flexible material. The wide range of available dermal fillers makes them one of the most popular injectable treatments.

What to Expect After Dermal Fillers

Your dermal filler treatment can take as little as 15 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on your treatment goals. After your injections, you are free to leave the office and go back to your usual activities. You may have some minor sensitivity, swelling, or redness in the injection area, but this will fade in a day or two. Some bruising is possible but is usually minimal.

Most dermal filler results are visible immediately after treatment, but some take time to fully develop. Your injection specialist will let you know what to expect. They will also tell you how long you can expect your filler to last. Most dermal fillers last between six months and two years. Some can last longer, but each has advantages and disadvantages. 

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers can be used to treat a wide range of facial concerns and signs of aging. For people who want to look younger without downtime or invasive procedures, dermal fillers can treat:

  • Lost volume in the cheeks and mid-face
  • Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Vertical lines around the mouth
  • Lost lip volume or thin lips
  • Hollow temples
  • Forehead lines and lines between the brows
  • Loss of facial definition

What Kinds of Dermal Fillers are Available?

Dermal fillers come in several different materials. We offer a range of options so that your injection specialist can choose the best one for your features, skin type, and desired results. 

Versa®, Juvederm®, and Restylane®

These fillers use a molecule called hyaluronic acid (HA). This molecule attracts and holds onto water. HA occurs naturally in the skin and is also found in many skincare products. HA fillers can treat almost any area of the face, from cheeks to lips. 

Radiesse®

This filler contains microspheres of a calcium compound found naturally in the body. Suspended in gel, these microspheres create a resilient filler that can be used to treat deep wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Radiesse is longer lasting (up to two years).

Sculptra® 

This dermal filler is made of poly-L-lactic acid. This biocompatible material is widely used in sutures and implants. Unlike other fillers, this one takes time to work. It stimulates collagen production as it dissolves, so volume develops over a few months.
