Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic injection that uses a special gel-like substance to add volume under your skin to enhance your look. As you get older, the fat under your skin begins to diminish, which allows the muscles to work closer to your delicate skin, creating the lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers act as a replacement for your fat loss.

In addition to smoothing out lines and wrinkles, the team at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body may also use dermal fillers to:

  • Plump up your lips
  • Improve your facial contours
  • Fill in recessed scars
  • Fix facial deformities


Reduce appearance of your under eye shadows

You can also combine dermal fillers with other aesthetic treatments, such as Botox®, for a more dramatic effect. 


Am I a good candidate for dermal fillers?

The team at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body determine if you’re a good candidate for dermal fillers during a consultation. These cosmetic injections work best at treating the early signs of aging, as well as an enhancement tool following other cosmetic treatments, including plastic surgery.

Ideally, to be considered a good candidate, you should be in good health, a nonsmoker, and have realistic expectations. 


What can I expect during dermal filler injections?

The team at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body conducts your dermal filler injections at the office. Before your injections begin, your specialist first devises your injection plan using a picture of your face, which outlines exactly where your injections are to go.

Before your injections begin, your specialist cleans your face with an antiseptic agent and applies an anesthetic to minimize your discomfort. Then, with precision and care, your cosmetic specialist at Rejuvenation Center for Mind and Body injects the filler and massages it into place. Additional injections may be needed to get the look you want.

You should notice an improvement in your look immediately following your dermal injections. Your skin may be a little red at the site of your injections, but these side effects should disappear soon after your treatment.

With good skin care practices, your dermal fillers may help you maintain your fresh, enhanced look for as long as a year, and sometimes even longer.
