What is a dermal filler?
A dermal filler is an injectable gel designed to reduce wrinkles and help skin look healthier and younger. Salons use various FDA-approved gel formulas that instantly add volume to areas that have lost volume over time.
Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to restore youthfulness and tighten up your face. Dermal fillers are designed to help with smile lines and nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). There are also fillers that can add natural-looking volume to your cheek area and lips.

The Dermal Filler Procedure
Before the procedure, expect to meet with a doctor and talk about your expectations and decide on the right dermal filler. The doctor or dermatologist doing the procedure will go over the process and may do some allergy testing beforehand to avoid any adverse side effects.
Before the injections, the area will be numbed. The procedure is quick and usually requires fewer injections compared to Botox. You may have some numbness and redness after the procedure.
You will notice a difference immediately after your procedure. Dermal fillers are not permanent, so you may want to plan on getting follow-up treatments as the fillers wear off. The average dermal fillers last around 18 months and will slowly fade away.
