Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

At Knight Dermatology Institute, you can take advantage of the dermal fillers known as Restylane® and Juvederm®. These injectable dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a compound the body creates naturally, to smooth out and add volume to your skin. As you get older, your production of hyaluronic acid slows. Dermal fillers restore your levels to enhance your appearance.

What issues can dermal fillers address?

The team at Knight Dermatology Institute discusses your aesthetic goals with you to determine if dermal fillers are the right treatment. The injections can address a number of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Thinning lips
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Marionette lines at the corners of your mouth
  • Vertical lines on the mouth
  • Worry lines across your forehead
  • Hollowed out cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds (lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth)
  • Shadows on the lower lids

Dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of moderate recessed scars.

How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?

The results of dermal fillers are evident right away. The results are temporary, lasting anywhere from six to 18 months. The actual staying power of your dermal filler treatment depends on the type used and the area treated. The team at Knight Dermatology Institute can give you a good idea of how long you can expect your specific treatment to last and when to schedule a retreatment to retain your new youthful look.

Do dermal filler injections hurt?

Dermal filler application does require a needle, so you will feel a pinch during the procedure. Some Juvederm applications have an anesthetic built in to numb the sensation during the procedure. You may also have pain at the injection site eased with ice or a topical anesthetic ointment.

Is there any downtime associated with dermal filler injections?

You can resume most activities right after your treatment but should plan on avoiding intense exercise for about 24 hours. You may have slight swelling or bruising at the injection sites.
