With age and a lifetime of laugh lines, a person’s face may begin to lose fullness and firmness. Dermal fillers are used to lift the cheeks, to fill lines and wrinkles, to smooth contours, to plump thin lips, and to fill scars. They have been used safely for decades to return youthful fullness to the face. Early fillers were made from collagen, an effective but short-lived enhancement. Now, many dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acids. These fillers are very stable and last up to one year. There are a variety of dermal fillers, each with different characteristics that make them ideal for different types of skin and corrections. The most popular filler brands are Juvedern and Restylane, which each offer a variety of fillers with unique properties and advantages. As a patient, you do not have to conduct research or determine the products best for you. Dr. Kim is experienced with many types of dermal fillers and will match the ideal filler to your unique skin type and problem areas.
The ideal candidates for dermal fillers wish to correct volume loss, wrinkles or focal contour irregularities of the face. There is no need to test for allergies to fillers.
Filler injections take only a few minutes to perform. Some patients may benefit from topical anesthesia, depending on the sensitivity of the areas being injected.
There is no significant recovery from injections with fillers. Patients can resume normal activities immediately. Ice should be applied to the injected areas, in order to reduce the risk for swelling and bruising.
