Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers? 

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that add volume to the skin, giving it a plump, youthful appearance. While fillers come in many formulations, most contain hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring component that moisturizes your skin. 

Fillers fill in hollow skin areas, making them perfect for treating many types of wrinkles. They deliver instant results, so you can leave Salida Dermatology with fuller, younger-looking skin.

Salida Dermatology proudly offers Juvéderm®, a line of popular fillers that can address volume loss, improve the appearance of wrinkles, augment the lips, and target many other signs of aging.

How do dermal fillers work?

Fillers use gel-like materials to plump and hydrate the skin. Unlike neuromodulators, like Botox® and Dysport®, fillers restore facial fullness immediately. Your wrinkles and areas of lost volume appear smoother and more youthful. With a team of dermatology experts performing your treatment, your results look natural. 

Can dermal fillers treat all types of wrinkles?

Dermal fillers primarily treat static wrinkles, which result from volume loss. Collagen, elastin, fat, and water make up the volume in your skin. These substances deteriorate with age, leaving the skin around your face crepey and hollow. Dermal fillers restore volume in these areas to give your skin a youthful appearance.

Along with wrinkles, dermal fillers can augment and contour the skin. Common uses for fillers include:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Thinning lips
  • Sagging jowls
  • Hollow cheeks and temples

Most dermal fillers can’t treat dynamic wrinkles, which form from muscle movement, but Salida Dermatology offers neuromodulators to soften these lines. Your provider can combine Botox or Dysport with fillers to minimize the appearance of all wrinkles.

What can I expect from dermal fillers?

Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine, an anesthetic, so you may not need numbing cream before treatment. The injections only take a few minutes, making them perfect as lunchtime treatments. Your injection sites may appear swollen, red, and bruised for a few days after treatment, but these effects dissipate quickly.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers last for about 6-12 months. Once your results start to fade, you can return to Salida Dermatology for additional injections to maintain your refreshed appearance.
