COSMETIC FACIAL FILLERS

What are facial fillers?
Facial fillers, which are also known as "dermal fillers," are used to "fill in" lines and wrinkles for a more youthful look. These injectables provide volume and lift to folds around the mouth, creases in the forehead, and other furrows on the face.

A good candidate for facial fillers is someone who has:

  • Nasal furrows
  • Forehead lines
  • Deep folds between the eyebrows
  • Cheek wrinkles
  • The "marionette" lines at the corners of the mouth


An individual with thin lips can also benefit from a filler, as it can adequately provide the volume that is lacking and create plump, fuller lips.

Which fillers are available?
At the Scherbart Duma Cosmetic Institute, we offer a variety of facial injectables. Some of these include:

Juvederm ®: is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic gel, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and maintain hydration. JUVEDERM® is used to smooth away facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. JUVEDERM® can also be used to add volume to your lips, cheeks, and can be used to restore youthful contours around the eyes, making them look less tired or sad. JUVEDERM® is popular because of its longevity and smooth consistency, which provides a natural look and feel.

One of the more popular uses for JUVEDERM® is the placement underneath the eyes to help camouflage "bags" and improve hollowness along with dark circles. At Scherbart-Duma Cosmetic Institute this procedure is performed with micro-cannulas, not sharp needles, thereby reducing the risk of bruising, swelling, and lumpiness. Additionally, JUVEDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color, and is the only hyaluronic gel filler to receive FDA approval to last up to one year.

Risks:
Although fillers are mostly made of hyaluronic acid that are naturally found in the body, there are still some side effects that patients should be aware of prior to undergoing this facial procedure. Some of these include:

  • Redness
  • Skin firmness
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Lumps and bumps under the skin (granulomas)

However, these are only temporary and should go away within a few days to a week after treatment. Should patients experience more severe side effects, it is important to consult with a physician in order to prevent further complications.

How are facial fillers administered?
Prevelle Silk is the first filler to have its own numbing agent within the compound, thus reducing discomfort. For most other fillers, a numbing agent may be used to minimize discomfort during the treatment. Your physician will inject the selected filler into the targeted areas that were discussed during your initial consultation. Results are typically noticeable immediately, and can last from four to nine months, depending on the filler that was administered. Patients may return for touch-up injections in order maintain their new, smooth facial appearance. We at Scherbart Duma Cosmetic Institute can discuss your facial filler options with you during a consultation.

After the treatment:
While the effects are long-lasting, patients should note that they are not permanent. This minimally invasive facial procedure allows the patient to return to daily activities right after the treatment. No downtime is necessary. Patients must be sure to follow all of their physician's instructions in order avoid any complications.
