Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are substances injected beneath the skin’s surface to add volume, fill in wrinkles, and restore a smoother appearance. They are commonly used in cosmetic procedures to address signs of aging, such as lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in various areas of the face.

Hyaluronic acid fillers, for instance, are a popular choice as they are naturally found in the body and help to hydrate and plump the skin. They can be used to add volume to areas like the lips, cheeks, and around the mouth. Juvederm and RHA are just a couple of popular filler brands — and favorites among providers of the Aesthetic Collective!

The procedure involves first and foremost a comprehensive consultation to understand the patient’s desired outcome. Your provider will determine which product is best suited to your goals. Before injecting, we apply a topical numbing cream to make the procedure as comfortable as possible (we think you’ll be surprised at how simple it is!). Next, your provider will inject the chosen filler beneath the skin using a fine needle or cannula.

Dermal fillers are used to smooth lines, restore volume, and enhance facial contours. Results are usually immediate and can last from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used, the area treated, and individual factors.

Dermal fillers are considered safe when administered by trained and qualified medical professionals. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, such as swelling, redness, bruising, and in rare cases, infection or allergic reactions. It’s important to discuss your goals, expectations, and any concerns with a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.
