What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an effective facial rejuvenation treatment for many patients to diminish premature aging and improve the skin’s overall resilience by promoting collagen production. As versatile treatments, fillers often consist of naturally occurring, biocompatible substances like hyaluronic acid, which make them safe and appropriate for most people.

Fillers are available in different formulas to enhance your facial features and address contouring concerns, including improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles and thinning or naturally flat lips. By increasing volume and hydration, fillers can help smooth moderate and severe facial wrinkles and folds. 

With no downtime and a quick, comfortable in-office treatment, many dermal fillers can deliver rejuvenating effects that are visible almost immediately. Depending on the filler type, treated area, and individual response, results last for three to 18 months. Other fillers provide results that develop gradually for a less dramatic outcome.

Dermal fillers can subtly enhance the appearance of:

  • Lips and perioral area
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Chin and jawline augmentation
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Temporal hollows
  • Hands

Preparing for Your Dermal Filler Procedure

You must be in good health before any medical procedure, even minimally invasive filler injections. While Dr. Anderson tailors each dermal filler treatment to your needs, here’s general information to help you get ready.

  • Be selective when choosing your filler provider – not all injectors have equal experience and credentials. Dr. Anderson is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has received extensive education in performing injectable procedures and teaches her techniques to other professionals.
  • If you currently smoke, vape, or use nicotine products, you should quit for at least a week before and after each dermal filler treatment you receive. Smoking is detrimental to your health in multiple ways, including compromising the longevity of your filler results.
  • Avoid medications, supplements, or vitamins that increase bleeding or bruising risks for three to six days before and after your dermal filler procedure.
  • Remain well-hydrated before and after your procedure and avoid alcohol or caffeine for three to six days, as they can cause additional bleeding and bruising.
  • Come to your appointment with clean, moisturized skin.

Washington DC Dermal Fillers Procedure Overview

Typically, dermal filler appointments are quick and relatively painless. You may request a topical anesthetic if you worry about pain. Many filler formulas also contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort after treatment. Depending on the number of target areas, your procedure may last 30 to 45 minutes.

Dr. Anderson’s experience and extreme precision allow her to customize each dermal filler procedure to address your specific needs and anatomy, ensuring you achieve beautiful results with the least amount of product necessary.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

Dermal filler injections require minimal downtime, allowing you to resume most normal activities immediately after treatment. Mild redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection site are typical side effects; however, these should resolve on their own within a few hours to a few days.

To ensure optimal results from your dermal filler procedure, thoroughly follow Dr. Anderson’s instructions, including avoiding:

  • Wearing makeup for 24 hours
  • Touching the treated area for at least 12 hours
  • Sun and heat exposure for at least 24 hours
  • Exercise or strenuous activities for at least 24 to 48 hours
  • Smoking or consuming alcohol for at least 48 hours

How Soon Will I See My Dermal Filler Results?

You may notice an almost immediate improvement after a dermal filler treatment, depending on the filler type and location. Some fillers, such as Sculptra® or Radiesse®, provide more gradual results over several weeks.

Depending on the treated area, the product used, optimal placement, and metabolic response, patients can experience results that last from six months up to two years. While fillers deliver temporary results, you can maintain them with follow-up injections.
