How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are commonly made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found within the body and can help retain moisture and make the skin more supple. When the hyaluronic acid is injected into an area, it creates a temporary bond with the area, leading to a filled-in or fuller appearance. A local anesthetic will be applied during your dermal filler procedure to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. After this, the provider will inject the area and may massage it to help correctly position the filler. 

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used throughout the face to help patients treat common signs of aging, or add volume to an area, in just a few minutes. Texas Facial Plastic Surgery uses several brands of dermal fillers, each with its own unique benefits.

Adding Dermal Filler Treatment into Your Life

One of the benefits of dermal fillers is how quick the procedure is. Surgical procedures require extended periods of rest and recovery. Dermal filler treatments typically take 30 minutes or less to perform and require almost no downtime. Although the results are temporary, you’ll be able to come in for touch-up appointments as needed. 

Recovery After Dermal Fillers

Once the treatment is over, you will be able to return to most of your regular activities right away. You may experience some bruising or swelling, but this should diminish after a few days. Before your treatment, you will be given full recovery instructions, including what to avoid after treatment.
