Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable pharmaceutical products used to reduce the appearance of facial lines and sagging skin. Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump thin lips
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of facial scars
- Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
- Decrease or remove the shadow below the lower eyelids
- Add fullness and volume to the face
Depending on the condition of your skin and your desired appearance, Dr. Averilla will recommend the best type of dermal filler for your goals – whether BOTOX® or Juvéderm® – and how much of each filler is used.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic addresses the repetitive muscle contractions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is injected into the superficial layers of the muscles of your face to relax and smooth the muscles, preventing deeper wrinkle formation.
BOTOX can be used in the following areas:
- Between the eyebrows
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Around the mouth (laugh lines)
The amount of BOTOX used is based on the thickness of your facial muscles and the number of areas receiving treatment. Dr. Averilla provides recommendations for subtle and more complex treatments so you get results you love.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable used to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and areas of sagging. It produces a smoother and softer skin surface but doesn’t prevent wrinkles from forming. It can be used in conjunction with BOTOX, if desired.
Juvéderm can be used in the following areas:
- Sides of the nose
- Around the mouth
Juvéderm also contains hyaluronic acid, which improves skin hydration so you see a fuller, more youthful appearance in your skin.
What can I expect after getting dermal fillers?
After Dr. Averilla injects dermal fillers into your skin, you can see an immediate change in your skin, including a smoother, fuller appearance. You may notice mild redness for one to two days after treatment. This redness will go away quickly as your skin begins to respond to the treatment.
In most cases, dermal fillers last six months to one year. Afterwards, you may want to get touch-ups every six months or each year, as desired.
