Metabolic Medicine Q & A

What is a Dermal Filler?

As we age, our faces lose fat, bringing our facial muscles closer to the skin’s surface. This can make various signs of aging, such as smile lines and crow’s feet, more obvious. Injectable dermal fillers can plump up thin lips, soften lines, smooth wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.

Am I A Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

As long as you are physically healthy, dermal fillers could be a viable option for you.

What Can I Expect From my Dermal Filler Procedure?

Dr. Kota and his team will evaluate and pinpoint the appropriate points on your face in which to inject filler. These injection sites will be cleaned with an antibacterial agent, and then anesthetized. After that, each injection takes only a few moments. Depending upon the number of areas in which dermal filler is to be injected, the process can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour.

What is the Recovery Time After Dermal Fillers?

You can resume most activities right away, though you may notice mild swelling or bruising, and temporary numbness or redness. The area that was treated may also seem “overfilled.” These conditions are temporary and can be alleviated with a topical cream. They should disappear completely within a few days.

What are the Various Types of Dermal Fillers?

At Premier Physicians, Dr. Kota and his team use different types of dermal fillers for different parts of the face. This is because different fillers have different chemical make-ups and varying degrees of softness.

  • Juvéderm is used on facial wrinkles and folds, and typically lasts from 9 months to 1 year. 
  • Juvéderm Voluma is generally used to add volume in the cheeks, and can last up to 2 years. 
  • Juvéderm Volbella is used for lip augmentation and to soften the appearance of lines around the mouth, and lasts for about 1 year.
