What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an effective solution for reducing lines and other signs of aging in the face while restoring it with youthful "fullness." Over time, our faces tend to lose the vital fat that gives them their natural shape and volume. As a result, the facial muscles move closer to the surface of the skin, resulting in the development of issues such as smile lines and crow's feet. Beyond that, the facial skin slowly stretches over time, further exacerbating the loss of facial volume.

Other factors that contribute to these aging processes include excess sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle choices.

What Types of Dermal Fillers Are There?

Most dermal fillers are composed of a material known as “hyaluronic acid,” a natural substance of the human body. This substance is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and “plump.” There are various products that follow this model, including Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra.

What Is the Recovery Time After a Dermal Filler Treatment?

After undergoing dermal filler injections, patients sometimes experience effects such as minor bleeding, swelling, or bruising. While these conditions typically subside immediately following the injections, bruising or swelling may persist for a few days in some patients. It is advised that patients apply ice to the injection sites to minimize bruising. Additionally, it is important that patients refrain from touching the treated areas and avoid exercising for at least 24 hours following the treatment.

When Do the Results Show Up?

Dermal fillers produce immediate results upon injection, although it can take a few days for patients to see the final outcome. This is simply due to the fact that there is some swelling for the first few days that distorts the results. However, the practitioner can check the patient's face for symmetry right away, ensuring that the filler is distributed in an aesthetically-pleasing way. Patients who feel that they need more filler in a certain area can let their doctor know during the treatment.
