Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

As you get older, your facial skin may start to sag. You might also develop deep wrinkles or creases. Unfortunately, topical creams and moisturizers can't solve this problem.

Wrinkles and lines are often a sign that you've lost subcutaneous fat. This type of fat helps keep your facial skin plump and firm.

Dermal fillers restore sagging skin, plumping up creases and fading wrinkles. When injected into your skin, this gel-like substance boosts volume. With dermal fillers, you can enjoy firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

How can dermal fillers improve my appearance?

Dermal fillers are ideal for patients with fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers can also contour your face, adjusting the shape of your features.

At Brea Wellness Center, the team uses dermal fillers to:

  • Contour jaws, cheeks, and the area under your eyes
  • Plump up and contour lips
  • Soften creases, wrinkles, and lines
  • Fade the appearance of scars

Dermal fillers are also used during liquid nose lifts. These nonsurgical procedures temporarily reshape your nose. During a liquid nose lift, the team injects dermal fillers into the bridge of your nose. You may also receive injections around your nostrils or the tip of your nose.

A liquid nose lift can erase bumps and grooves, gently reshaping your nose. Results typically last from 6-12 months and disappear over time.

What happens during a dermal filler procedure?

During your consultation, the Brea Wellness Center Team discusses your goals. Many types of dermal fillers are available. The team examines your skin and determines which substance is right for you.

Next, the team cleans your skin and injects the fillers into the target areas. You may receive several injections during your procedure. The injection process takes just a few minutes. After the injections, your provider gently massages the area. They also assess your results. Sometimes, your provider may perform another set of injections to ensure top-quality results.

The entire procedure takes 15-45 minutes, depending on your treatment goals. During your consultation, the team lets you know how long your session will take.

What results can I expect?

After your injections, you may have minor swelling or soreness. These side effects usually disappear within a few days. Individual results for dermal fillers may vary. But most patients notice an improvement right away. Results usually last for 6-12 months.

Keeping up with your skincare routine helps preserve your results. Touch-up treatments can also keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. The Brea Wellness Center team can create a schedule for your follow-up injections.
