Reduce Creases

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a group of injectable fillers that can be used to plump lips, reduce creases and folds, and fill up hollows around the eyes, in addition to helping sculpt the jawline, smooth out acne scarring, and give volume to the cheeks. They can also be used as a non-surgical alternative to a nose job.

The most often used FDA-approved filler component is hyaluronic acid. Other substances used as a filler include calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, collagen, or polymethyl methacrylate microspheres.

At Stillwater Skin & Med Spa, high-quality Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse, Belotero, and Radiesse are used, with each product having specific usage situations that vary from patient to patient. Dr. Luerssen takes great care in discerning exactly which filler suits you and your goals for the best possible results.

Fight the Signs of Aging

What are the benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid, a component of natural skin and the main material for many of the most popular dermal fillers, is used to lessen the visible indications of aging. Because the natural rate of collagen synthesis decreases with age, the eventual result is rough, wrinkled skin. Dermal Fillers, fortunately, can help to alleviate any potential points of concern while also assisting your body in increasing its collagen growth, which will result in younger-looking skin that is smoother, tighter, and more luminous.

The Juvederm and Restylane fillers are both gel-based and specialize in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines by giving a plumping effect to the skin. Radiesse, a filler comprised of gel microspheres, focuses more on restoring volume loss from aging but still provides similar effects to the other two, as well as being approved to treat similar conditions towards the back of the hands.

Vast Set of Options

Am I a good candidate for Dermal Fillers?

In most cases, generally healthy patients seeking improvements to the overall appearance of the skin are great candidates for any of the Dermal Filler options offered by Stillwater Skin & Med Spa. Because of the sheer volume of potential combinations of the filler type, the desired area of treatment, and the ability of certain fillers to perform certain functions better, a vast set of options is laid out before any patient.

To pinpoint your intended effect and to be sure that there are no underlying complications that can jeopardize the safety of your procedure, such as allergies, infections, or other health difficulties, you should discuss the specifics of your procedure with Dr. Luerssen.

Quick and Easy

Your Dermal Filler Procedure

The very first step of your procedure will see Dr. Luerssen working extensively with you to determine exactly which Dermal Filler best suits you and your needs. Your injector will clean the treatment area and, if required, use a topical anesthetic. This isn't always necessary because the majority of fillers already include lidocaine, a pain-relieving agent.

After that, they may gently massage the region with their fingertips to spread the filler before injecting more of it slowly to ensure more uniform distribution. Following the injections, an ice pack may be offered to alleviate any pain or discomfort, but note that applying too much pressure could spread the Dermal Fillers to unwanted areas. The entire process usually lasts around 30 to 45 minutes, making it a quick and easy treatment.

Minimal Downtime

Dermal Filler Recovery

Due to the minimal downtime associated with Dermal Fillers Carmel patients won't actually have any strict recovery time. However, it's fairly typical to experience light bruising and swelling where the injection was made, so you might want to take a social break until they subside.

These side effects tend to go away within two to four days but can vary based on your body’s healing speed and the area of treatment, among other factors. Although bruises can usually be concealed with makeup, getting fillers too soon before a significant occasion is still not advised. To prevent the swelling from getting worse following treatment, avoid the sun, heat, exercise, and alcohol for at least 24 hours.
