Dermal fillers are injectable products that help fill in wrinkles and folds and restore volume that’s lost over time. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and moisture, and over time, it begins to droop and sag, making wrinkles and lines more pronounced. Fillers are designed to address these issues by “plumping up” creases, restoring lost volume, and even helping skin retain more moisture so it looks naturally plumper.
First, Dr. Fuchs will review your concerns and thoroughly examine your skin and your face shape to determine which fillers are the best options for your needs and where the injections should be placed to achieve optimal effects. Next, the injection sites are carefully cleansed, then the filler is injected, usually in multiple sites to ensure the material is evenly spread throughout the treatment area. Injections take just a few minutes. Once your injections are complete, you may have some minor swelling or redness in the area, but these issues will resolve soon afterward.
Most women and men experience very minor discomfort during the injections. Very sensitive patients may be numbed first to reduce discomfort. There’s no downtime following treatment, so you can get back to your regular routine.
No, dermal fillers are used to treat static wrinkles, the lines, creases, and folds that form as a result of genetics, gravity, sun exposure. chronic stress, and age-related changes in your skin. Many women and men have fillers in combination with BOTOX, which is designed to treat the second type of wrinkles, dynamic wrinkles. Using both BOTOX and dermal fillers enables you to treat wrinkles and lines throughout your face so you can enjoy the effects of a “mini” facelift without surgery.
Yes, fillers can also be used to restore lost volume in the cheeks and in other areas of your face, helping to gently lift your skin and fill in hollowed-out areas, so you look younger and more refreshed. Plus, fillers are great for plumping up lips that have lost volume due to aging.
That depends on the type of filler that’s used and the area that’s being treated. Most fillers last a year or longer.
