Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Fillers are a cosmetic injection comprised of a hyaluronic acid gel that helps restore volume to your face. There are a variety of fillers that provide different benefits. Dr. Zarrini offers a number of fillers, including:

  • Juvéderm®: for cheeks and facial folds
  • Juvéderm Volbella®: for lips and mouth
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC: for adding volume to cheeks
  • Restylane®: for facial wrinkles and folds

As you get older, the subcutaneous fat under your skin begins to decrease and collagen production wanes. Without the support of collagen and plumpness of the fat, your skin may sag, creating the lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Dermal fillers serve as a replacement for your subcutaneous fat.

What skin flaws can fillers fix?

Dr. Zarrini uses dermal fillers to improve a number of your skin imperfections and concerns. Some of the most common uses for fillers include:

  • Softening facial lines and creases
  • Adding volume to cheeks and lips
  • Reducing under-eye shadows

Fillers can also be used to fill in recessed acne scars to smooth out the texture of your skin.

What can I expect during my dermal filler treatment?

Dr. Zarrini is a skilled physician who begins by reviewing your aesthetic goals and devising a treatment plan that helps you achieve those goals. Before beginning your injections, he applies a numbing agent to the target area to minimize your discomfort.

Once your skin is numb, he carefully injects the fillers into very precise points on your skin to give you the look you want. He may massage the filler into place and add more as needed.

After your dermal filler treatment, you should be able to notice an improvement in your look immediately. While there typically isn’t any downtime following filler injections, Dr. Zarrini may suggest you avoid strenuous activity for the first day or two.

How long do fillers last?

Your dermal fillers aren’t permanent, but with good care, should keep you looking young and fresh for at least a year. Dr. Zarrini recommends you use sunblock daily and cover up with sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat when you plan on being out in the sun for an extended period of time.

Fillers are a nonsurgical treatment that can improve your look. To schedule a filler consultation, call Behnoush Zarrini, MD, today or request an appointment online.
