Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

As you age, your body produces fewer compounds, such as elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, that boost skin strength and resiliency. Sun damage, gravity, and environmental exposure or lifestyle habits accelerate the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers stimulate production of these skin-strengthening compounds. Juvederm® injections restore levels of hyaluronic acid to boost volume and plump the skin. These injections can also fill in areas and replump your skin so you look younger and fresher.

Dermal filler treatments reduce the signs of aging by:

  • Smoothing deep wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
  • Plumping up your lips
  • Providing great long-lasting results

Filler procedures reshape the face by restoring volume where it has been depleted and sculpting the face to a more youthful contour. Juvederm, a popular filler offered at the practice, provides multiple formulas to address issues such as thinning lips or hollowed cheeks. Dr. Ang and the team use their vast experience to determine which options are best for you.

Dermal fillers can be combined with other treatments, such as Botox®, to achieve optimal results.

What effects should I expect from dermal filler treatments?

Dermal filler injections give you a more youthful, healthy look. The nasolabial lines disappear, creating a beautiful youthful result. It also helps enhance your lips, reducing small lines and restore fuller healthier lips.

What should I expect with a dermal filler treatment?

Most filler treatments take 15 to 30 minutes. The specialists performing the dermal filler injections have extensive training and expertise to determine exactly where and which types of products to apply to create a look that meets your cosmetic goals.

Because they involve no incisions, blood loss, or sloughing of the surface of the skin, you can typically return to all your normal activities right after a session.

Men and women tolerate dermal filler injections well. Several formulas contain a topical anesthetic to help ease any discomfort.

What is recovery like after a dermal filler treatment?

Following dermal filler injections, you may experience mild soreness, swelling, and/or minor bruising in the treatment areas for a few hours. On occasion, these side effects last up to a few days after treatment.

Avoid alcohol and aspirin for 24 hours prior to your appointment.
