Dermal fillers are injections that are often made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance already present in your skin. Hyaluronic acid often decreases due to aging, causing wrinkled or sunken skin, which is why dermal fillers are an excellent treatment option.
At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, the team offers Juvederm XC®, Juvederm Volbella XC®, Juvederm Vollure XC®, Juvederm Voluma XC®, and Radiesse. They improve contours, reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, make you look younger, and plump your lips or the skin on your hands.
Juvederm is made with HA, while Radiesse is unique with its calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) formula (the high viscosity and elasticity properties provide stronger support).
Dermal Fillers are FDA-approved, safe, and effective. To determine which type of dermal filler is best for your needs, the Medical Aesthetics & Laser team examines your skin in areas that concern will consult you one-on-one to determine which filler is best for you.
They ask about your medical history, discuss your aesthetic goals and desired results, and personalize
your treatment plan.
When you come to Medical Aesthetics & Laser for dermal fillers, you rest comfortably in the relaxing room where numbing cream can be applied. They then inject the filler directly into your skin using a fine needle. This procedure can take 45 minutes to an hour.
You might develop mild swelling and redness at the injection sites, but these are common side effects that will subside soon after your treatment. You should avoid strenuous exercise and extensive sun or heat exposure within the first 24 hours.
Dermal fillers provide immediate, noticeable results, but if you receive Botox in combination with dermal fillers, it can take a few days to appear.
Dermal fillers often last 6-24 months*, while neurotoxin injectables like Botox generally last 3-5 months*. Dermal fillers and neurotoxins aren’t permanent cosmetic treatments, but repeat injections over time offer long-lasting results.
