As we age, our faces naturally lose the vital components that give our skin volume, structure, and lift. These include collagen, elastin, subcutaneous fat, muscle, and eventually bone. As a result, the skin starts to stretch and sag, causing lines to form from a lack of volume and support. Dermal fillers can help rep
Dermal fillers are products comprised of various safe substances that restore volume and fullness when injected into the skin. Although there are many different fillers available today, and each is slightly different, all focus on adding youthful volume to the skin to smooth and contour, lift and support, or enhance a feature such as the lips.

Before your dermal filler appointment, your provider may instruct you to avoid the use of aspirin, ibprofen, and other supplements, like fish oil, which may thin the blood and increase the chance of bruising. If your lips are being injected and you have a history of fever blisters or cold sores, you may be advised to take a prophylactic antiviral before your appointment to discourage a breakout.
During your treatment, your provider will use ice to ease any discomfort from the injections. Many dermal fillers also have numbing agents within the filler to keep you comfortable during treatment.
Immediately after your dermal filler treatment, there will be some swelling and tenderness. In addition, there is a chance of bruising, so we recommend scheduling your appointment well before any special events.
Swelling and bruising may last up to two weeks but generally subsides within three to five days. You may choose to take the supplement Arnica Montana before your appointment to shorten the lifespan of any potential bruising. You may wear makeup immediately after your appointment. In some cases, we may advise you to massage the injected area several times a day, such as with Sculptra®.
Your results from all dermal fillers (except Sculptra® Aesthetic, which takes three to six months to see the full effect) will be immediate. You can assess your final results after two weeks once any swelling has subsided. Depending on which filler you have had injected, expect your results to last anywhere from one to five years.
