How do Dermal Fillers work?

Say hello to volume! Whether you’re looking to smooth over facial folds, or add volume to the face, injectable dermal fillers provide a solution! Fillers at Dr. Sharon Aesthetics are an effective way to enhance the structure of the face, shape the nose, plump up the lips, improve the appearance of scars, and overall visible signs of aging. 

As we age, we tend to lose natural volume and structure in the face, causing us to lose our youthful appearance. Fillers are a quick and easy way to restore lost volume, giving us a lifted and rejuvenated appearance– without the downtime necessary with invasive surgical procedures! In addition, receiving filler injections can also stimulate some collagen production.

How are dermal procedures done?

At Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, we offer a wide array of FDA-approved filler brands and products, each tailored for use in different areas of the face. Every type of filler has a different bonding and concentration of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already found in the body. Each filler is strategically chosen for optimal enhancement towards the aesthetic goals of the patient.

During treatment, a numbing agent is applied and filler is injected underneath the facial skin using a needle into the desired treatment area, skillfully placed to create shape and volume. The filler must be purposefully placed with precision, which is why it is essential to choose a highly-skilled injector. The product of a pencil is different in the hands of an artist, and the same applies here with dermal filler treatment!

How long do dermal fillers last?

Here at Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, the facial anatomy of the patient is thoroughly assessed to ensure the correct amount of filler is artfully placed. This is to create facial harmony and balance, in relation to the patient’s aesthetic goals.

Dermal Fillers benefit from being a temporary treatment, as they can also be reversed using hyaluronidase, which dissolves the filler if desired. It can also be used to experiment and preview a different look such as having a non-surgical rhinoplasty, before committing to more permanent and invasive surgical procedures.

Patients also benefit from being able to see how the filler is looking during the treatment, so they are able to express their own input as they are being injected.

Results of injectable fillers can be seen instantly, however it does take a few days for some swelling at the injection sites to subside and reveal the final look. Dermal fillers are often combined with treatments such as Botox to further enhance results and provide further improvement in the youthfulness of the skin.
