What are dermal Fillers?

Filler injections (usually called dermal fillers) are often utilized to replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a variety of reasons, but age and significant weight loss are the leading causes. The process works by incorporating the liquid filler beneath the skin to fill sunken or hollowed areas. Fillers are an excellent, nonsurgical option for Westlake, OH women and men desiring to even out fine lines, sagging skin, and/or wrinkles in order to create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be incorporated into other cosmetic services to provide the benefits of a traditional facelift without the need for surgery, the risk of scarring, and the required recovery that follows. There are many different types of fillers that may help meet the goals and desires of each patient. Our office carries many popular filler options, including JUVÉDERM,  Restylane®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and VOLUMA™. To find out which option is recommended for you, we encourage you to visit The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care, where our team can help you make this decision.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

For Westlake, OH patients, dermal fillers may work for several concerns and provide many benefits, including:

  • Refresh and plump areas that are hollow or flat
  • Improve your confidence in your skin and overall appearance
  • Improve regions affected by sagging skin or creases
  • Add facial volume to attain your optimal facial shape

Am i an Ideal Candidate for dermal fillers?

The best candidates for dermal fillers would be anyone looking to minimize fine lines and wrinkles without resorting to a surgical facelift. In most situations, those who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that are uneven or sunken in. These attributes make them great candidates for injectable fillers. Fillers are also a promising option for men and women not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

Before your injection procedure, our Westlake, OH team will consult with you to learn more about your aesthetic goals and decide what product may best produce them. For the actual procedure, we will use topical numbing cream as an anesthetic to minimize the discomfort of the injections. Your provider will then decide how much is appropriate and will carefully and evenly inject it through a small needle. Depending on the desired outcome, either half or an entire syringe could be used.

What Can I Expect After My Dermal Filler Appointment?

Injectable fillers are done as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. Due to the use of anesthetic, the process is typically only mildly uncomfortable and does not require downtime. You can expect swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms will fade away within a couple of days. Results can last from three months to a year depending on the product and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, treat lines and wrinkles (particularly on the brow and around the eyes) by reducing the movement of facial muscles. Fillers restore volume to your face to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and depressions. Injectable fillers may also be used to add more volume to your lips and cheeks plus to reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.

How long will the results last?
How long your results last will be dependent on what brand(s) is used and where it is placed. For some people, results may last up to a year, whereas others might want a repeat treatment after a couple of months. Touch-up treatments can be scheduled at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care in order to maintain your results.

What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers can improve signs of aging throughout your face by either adding volume or smoothing static lines. Dermal fillers can be injected into mild to moderate parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your nose and mouth. They can also temporarily add volume to your lips and cheeks.

What is the downtime after dermal filler treatment?
Dermal filler treatments usually involve minimal to no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately, although some temporary redness, swelling, or minor bruising at the injection site may occur.
