What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable medications that are used to increase volume and smooth wrinkles in facial skin. Fillers can be used on their own or in conjunction with other esthetic procedures for maximum facial rejuvenation.

What are the different types of fillers?

The experienced team at Eternal Hair and Esthetics typically recommends fillers that are present naturally in large amounts in younger skin, such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. Synthetic fillers are longer lasting, but they are more likely to cause side effects, unless administered by a skilled provider with extensive training.


What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can fill in contours and smooth wrinkles and creases in the following areas:

  • Nasal folds
  • Sides of the mouth
  • Lips
  • Cheeks

Fillers can also add volume to the hands.


What should I expect from dermal filler injections?

The process of treatment with dermal fillers begins with a consultation with one of the skilled specialists at Eternal Hair and Esthetic, including a dermatologic skin evaluation to determine the location for your injections and how much medication to use to meet your goals.

When it’s time for your treatment, your specialist will first cleanse your skin, and then mark the target injection sites on your face. The specialist uses an FDA-approved sterile needle to inject the medication into your skin.

Most treatments take less than an hour to complete, and you should begin to see results right away. In some cases, more than one treatment is required for optimal results.

How long do fillers last?

The amount of time that results last depends on the area, the type of filler, and your individual skin chemistry and lifestyle. In general, fillers can last between 4-18 months.


What are the risks of dermal fillers?

Hyaluronic acid and collagen fillers are very safe. Some temporary side effects following treatment are possible, including:

  • Pain or itching at the injection site
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Headache

These side effects usually last less than two weeks. More severe side effects such as allergic reaction or infection do occur sometimes, but they are extremely rare.
