Dermal Fillers Q&A

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a procedure that can be performed to restore fullness and volume in the face. Dermal fillers are also a great choice to diminish facial lines that occur because of aging. As you age, your skin loses a lot of subcutaneous fat, meaning that your facial muscles are closer to the surface of the skin. This allows certain lines to show through, making you look older and decreasing your self-esteem.

Who Can Use Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a good way for people with thinner lips, shallow contours, facial wrinkles and creases like crow's feet and smiles lines, and recessed scars to improve their appearance. They can even be used as a tool to improve sagging jawlines, cheeks, temples, and hands.

Generally, patients who are in their 30s to 50s will see the best results.

What Are the Different Types of Dermal Fillers?

The two main types of dermal fillers are synthetic and natural. At Sorgente MedSpa and All Cape Gynecology, you can expect to only receive natural fillers. One of the most popular natural fillers is hyaluronic acid. Some of the most popular brand names of this type of injection include Juvederm and Revanesse Versa. Generally, natural fillers are not permanent, and their results last from a few months to a couple of years. However, it is simple to get a follow-up injection to refresh the results.

What Happens During a Dermal Filler Procedure?

During your dermal filler procedure, Dr. Cagnes will first evaluate your skin tone and facial appearance to mark the treatment areas. She will then inject the filler into your skin. The whole process takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on how many areas you are treating.

Afterward, you can easily head back to your daily routine without issue. The only side effects you might experience are slight swelling and discomfort, both of which can be alleviated with an ice pack.
