What are Dermal Fillers?

Juvederm dermal fillers are sometimes confused with BOTOX. Both esthetic treatments are used to address wrinkles, but they are not the same. While BOTOX paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles and creases, dermal fillers – as their name suggests – are used to fill in the areas of the mouth that have lost volume. Your skin contains a special collagen that tends to break down due to the movement of the facial muscles; this is what causes facial lines, thinning features, and concaved cheeks. With dermal fillers, we can make up for lost collagen by infecting a gel-like substance in the affected areas of the face.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

There are a few factors you should consider before you decide to get Juvederm dermal fillers. The first is the kind of changes you want to make; some treatments work better on certain facial lines than others. Dermal fillers are typically a great option for those with fine lines and scarring, bags beneath the eyes, sunken or drooping cheeks, or thinned lips. They are also effective for wrinkles around the mouth or on the forehead.

You may be a good candidate for dermal fillers as long as you are physically healthy, do not smoke or use tobacco products, and are committed to keeping your skin as healthy as possible. We can answer any additional questions that you might have about the process during a short consultation.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Juvederm dermal fillers can be injected into your face very quickly and easily; typically, the treatment can be done in about 10 to 30 minutes, so you won’t have to spend too much time in our dental office. Also, while it can take up to two weeks for the final results to appear, you can generally expect to see some improvement immediately after the initial injection. The results will look completely natural, and the improvements made will be subtle yet noticeable. Casual observers meeting you for the first time will notice your youthful appearance, but they are highly unlikely to realize the role that dermal fillers have played. The results of fillers can last anywhere from between 2 to 6 months, and we’re more than happy to offer follow-up treatments so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of a youthful smile.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Is there anything you should do to prepare for dermal fillers? What can you expect during and after the procedure? These are just a couple of the questions that patients often ask us, and we always make sure they have all the information they need before they make any decisions. You can always reach out to our team for help, but before that, check to see if the answers you’re looking for are already in the FAQs below.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

The risk level associated with dermal fillers is very low. You may experience some mild side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort. However, these symptoms usually won’t last more than one or two weeks.

It’s not a good idea to get dermal fillers if you have a bleeding disorder or if your skin is currently inflamed. Also, it’s important to find out more about the ingredients that will be used for your fillers in case you might be allergic to them. Finally, dermal fillers are not recommended for individuals under the age of 18 as well as anyone who is pregnant.

What Happens If I Stop Getting Dermal Fillers?

If you decide to stop getting fillers, the effects will last for a matter of months or years before eventually wearing off. Stopping the treatment shouldn’t cause any problems for your skin; it will simply return to how it was before. As such, any lines that were smoothed out will appear again, and any volume gained thanks to the fillers will be lost. The good news is that you can restart the treatment at any time in order to enjoy the benefits again.

In some cases, when your wrinkles come back, they might seem deeper than they were before. This is not due to the fillers; it’s more likely a normal result of the aging process.

Do I Need a Consultation Before Getting Dermal Fillers?

Yes, a consultation should always be the first step of the dermal filler process. It’s imperative to make sure that you understand every aspect of the treatment before having it performed, so ask any questions that are on your mind. Also, we’ll need to confirm that you don’t have any allergies or health conditions that could stop you from undergoing the procedure. Finally, we’ll make sure that you’re well-informed about what to expect after dermal fillers have been injected.

Can Dermal Fillers Be Removed?

It depends on the kind of filler used. With Juvederm, the answer is often yes. A special enzyme called hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the particles of hyaluronic acid that were used for the injection. This can help reverse any results that you’re not happy with. It can also be a solution for unexpected issues such as swelling that lasts longer than expected.

Please remember that the effects of dermal fillers will wear off by themselves if you simply wait long enough. At that time, you can pursue other options for creating a more youthful appearance.
