Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid gel placed under your skin to diminish the effects of aging on your face.

As you age, your face loses fat near your skin’s surface. This process moves your facial muscles closer to your skin’s surface, bringing lines, creases, and wrinkles to your face. Your facial skin also stretches and loses volume. Other factors like sun damage, genetics, and lifestyle habits — such as your skincare routine or occupation — can also contribute.

With dermal fillers, you can reverse some of the signs of aging on your face.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dr. Singh provides injectable fillers by Allergan and Merz, made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM or RADIESSE supplements your body’s natural supply of this substance.

RADIESSE and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers used to smooth over moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They are especially effective for nasolabial folds, the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. They can also restore lost volume in the back of your hands.

Dr. Singh also offers BELOTERO BALANCE® injections, which are also hyaluronic acid-based,  to correct nasolabial folds. While many of the dermal fillers Dr. Singh provides can restore facial volume and structure, BELOTERO BALANCE also treats vertical lip lines, or “lipstick lines.”

Injections only take 15-20 minutes. You notice results immediately that gradually improve over the weeks following treatment. For optimal results, you need ongoing treatment every 12-24 months. For your benefit, Dr. Singh outlines a personalized treatment plan to meet your goals.

JUVÉDERM Ultra XC®, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC®, and RADIESSE injections offer a wide variety of benefits, including:

  • Wrinkle correction
  • Diminishing smile lines
  • Treating crow’s feet
  • Plumping thin lips
  • Chin augmentation
  • Filling cheek depressions
  • Redefining lip border
  • Softening acne scars
  • Filling hollows under the eyes
  • Creating a temporary eyebrow lift
  • Correcting facial depressions caused by fat loss
  • Softening the appearance of jowls

Dr. Singh also offers BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections, which consist of botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance that paralyzes facial muscles to limit their contractions. Ongoing BOTOX or XEOMIN treatments can also help reverse signs of aging like wrinkles and lines, particularly on the forehead.

What is the recovery like after getting dermal fillers?

You can resume most of your everyday activities right after treatment. However, you should avoid strenuous physical activity for at least one to two days. That helps limit swelling and bruising following injectable dermal fillers.

Severe side effects from dermal fillers are rare, though some minor complications are possible. Rest assured, Dr. Singh discusses them thoroughly with you before any procedure. These include:

  • Infection at the injection site
  • Skin rash
  • Scarring
  • Bleeding that causes bruising

If you have any questions, Dr. Singh is more than happy to explain the specifics during your in-office consultation.
