Fillers Q & A

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are safe, injectable materials that restore volume to the skin, and smooth wrinkles, so the skin appears supple, fuller, and more youthful without surgery.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers and other anti-aging skin injections are a noninvasive skin revitalization that doesn’t require any downtime. Dermal fillers are integral to the following:

  • Plumping thin lips
  • Smoothing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improving the appearance of scarring due to acne or injury
  • Enhancing volume in facial contours
  • Reduce lip lines
  • Reduce skin sag

The results from dermal injections are temporary, but they offer fast results and a visibly younger appearance that looks natural.

Are DysportⓇ and BOTOXⓇ the Same as Dermal Fillers?

Dysport and BOTOX are anti-aging injections, but they don’t “fill” the skin with a material to create results. Rather, they are a treatment that relaxes the tiny facial muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle and pucker.

Dysport, BOTOX, and other brands in this family of injectables offer excellent results when treating wrinkles and fine lines, and they can be used to create volume around the lip area. If you are looking to enhance contours or reduce skin sag, dermal fillers may be your best option.  

What Should I Expect During Treatment?

After you discuss your goals with one of the expert providers at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness during your consultation, your injections can be performed during a short office visit. Anesthesia is not usually necessary, but you can request a topical numbing solution if you have concerns. Your provider will first clean the injection site, and then administer a quick injection beneath the skin.

You may see results immediately following your treatment, or within the first few days. It’s possible that you'll have some mild bruising or swelling near the injection site, but this usually goes away with 24 hours.

How Long Will My Results Last?

How long your results from injectables last depends on which product you choose, the overall condition of your skin, and how well you care for your skin at home. In general, Dysport and BOTOX typically last between 4-6 months. Many dermal fillers can last 6-8 months, and Juvederm can last up to one year.
