One of the predominant visible signs of aging is volume loss. Volume loss can occur under the eyes, cheeks, and lower face, resulting in facial imbalance and a less-than youthful appearance. To improve facial balance or to correct underling asymmetry, dermal fillers are excellent for restoring volume, smoothing wrinkles, and enhancing your natural facial features. 


This treatment is for anyone looking to enhance a particular feature or is concerned with volume loss and overall facial imbalance in the cheeks, temples, under eyes, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, lips, chin, and/or jawline.

How long do dermal fillers last?

The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. Hyaluronic acid fillers typically last between 6 to 18 months. Some fillers designed to stimulate collagen production, like Sculptra, can last up to two years or more. However, individual results may vary.

Is the procedure painful?

Discomfort during a dermal filler procedure is typically minimal. Many fillers contain a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, to help numb the treatment area and enhance patient comfort. Additionally, healthcare providers may apply a topical numbing cream to further minimize any potential pain or discomfort.


Are there any side effects or risks associated with dermal fillers?

Common side effects of dermal fillers include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These effects usually resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more serious complications like infection, allergic reactions, or vascular occlusion can occur. It's crucial to choose a qualified provider and discuss potential risks and side effects before undergoing treatment.

How long is the recovery time after dermal filler injections?

Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after dermal filler injections. However, it's normal to experience some temporary swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These effects can typically be minimized or concealed with makeup, and they usually subside within a few days.

Can dermal fillers be dissolved or reversed?

Yes, some dermal fillers, particularly those made of hyaluronic acid, can be dissolved or reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This allows for correction or adjustment if desired or if any complications arise.
