What are Soft Tissue Fillers?
Soft tissue fillers are substances
that can be injected into the
skin to enhance its overall appearance.
Most often, these fillers
are used to smooth the appearance
of fine lines and wrinkles,
fill depressions and folds,
reduce the appearance of scars,
volumize lips, and repair
various other imperfections.
The materials used for fillers
include human and porcine
collagen, one’s own
fat, synthetic substrates
and hyaluronic acid.
There is little recovery
time, minimal pain, and treatments
At the Knight Dermatology Institute,
we commonly use fillers, alone
or in combination, to achieve
the desired result:
As the skin naturally ages,
collagen, elastin, bone and
fat begin to decrease. This
is most common in the areas
around the mouth, eyes, cheeks,
jaw, brows, nose, and forehead.
Crows feet, frown lines,
laugh lines, and furrows begin
to form. Soft tissue fillers
help our patients return to
a fuller, more youthful look.
Dermal Soft Tissue Filler Procedure
Prior to the injection,
the skin is cleaned and either
a topical or local anesthetic
Using a very small needle,
the filler is injected directly
into the area to be treated.
The injections may need to
be repeated to achieve specific
What can I expect after Soft
Tissue Filler Treatment
After the soft issue filler
treatment has been preformed,
redness, swelling, and minor bruising
may be present at the injection
sites. This is temporary and resolves
quickly. Makeup can be applied
immediately following treatment.
The final result from soft tissue
fillers is generally long lasting.
Most people require maintenance
treatments six months to two years
after the initial treatment; occasionally
interval touch-up injections may
be needed sooner.
