Top 5 Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers offer the opportunity to rejuvenate your facial appearance with a simple injectable treatment. Dermal fillers plump lines and soften the look of wrinkles. These reversible treatments make the signs of aging less noticeable.


Our doctor received extensive training in the administration of both dermal fillers and BOTOX®. This blog will explore the benefits of dermal fillers and how easy it is to add them to your anti-aging routine.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

  1. Reduce the appearance of facial aging by adding volume to sagging or wrinkled skin
  2. Safe ingredients that absorb naturally into the body
  3. Reversible with no commitment over the long term
  4. No downtime, unlike surgical procedures
  5. Immediate results

About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers add volume to skin areas that have lost fullness due to natural aging. They can smooth the appearance of wrinkles and lines, especially the creases between the two sides of the nose and the corners of the mouth (nasolabial lines).


These medications can improve the appearance of the lips, chin, cheeks, jawline, and the hollows under the eyes. Some patients also opt to use the treatment on the backs of their hands.

Contents of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers contain safe ingredients like hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, naturally occurring in the body. They may also contain poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic but biodegradable substance.

How Doctors Use Dermal Fillers

The first step is fully assessing your face and examining which areas would benefit most from treatment. The doctor may mark the ideal spots to inject fillers.


Next, the doctor will sanitize your injection sites using an antibacterial cleanser. They will take steps to minimize your discomfort during the injections, including local anesthetics.


The doctor injects your medication in the proper areas, massaging the skin and deciding whether the area needs more filler.


After treatment, you may feel some minor tenderness and swelling. Ice packs can help the swelling subside. Medication is not usually needed.


Avoid strenuous activity for the first one to two days. The fillers will settle after the first few days, and any temporary unnatural appearance will subside.

After Treatment

Take good care of your skin, following a care routine recommended by your doctor. When the results wear off, you can opt for a repeat treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dermal Fillers

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers can last from four months to two years. When the results begin to wear off, you can repeat the treatment to continue enjoying a younger appearance.

Can I use fillers and BOTOX® together?

Your doctor can combine these treatments to create a smoother facial appearance. Many doctors recommend receiving the treatments about two weeks apart, using BOTOX® first to relax facial muscles.
