What are Dermal Fillers and Injectables used for?

Dermal filler injections, or injectable fillers, are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that are used to repair such conditions as sagging skin, sunken facial contours, creases, folds, lines, wrinkles, and thin, brittle lips.  Dermal fillers come in a variety of different formulas, each targeting specific problems and specific areas of the face or body.  These treatments provide results that, in some cases, may last as long as two years.  You may choose a single filler or a combination of fillers as a standalone procedure, or you may choose to use dermal fillers in combination with any other procedure such as liposuction or plastic surgery to achieve a more defined contour.

Why are Dermal Fillers and Injectables so popular?

Dermal fillers are popular because they are safe for almost anyone to use. They provide a quick and effective aesthetic solution that is inexpensive, minimally invasive, and yields immediate results with the added benefit that many treatments provide continued improvement over time.  Dermal fillers typically take under an hour to administer and require no recovery period. Some patients may require follow-up treatments, and some treatments produce gradual, ongoing results, but in most cases, you will see an immediate improvement to your appearance after a single treatment.

Who can benefit from Injectable Dermal Filler treatments?

Almost any healthy adult in good overall health may be an ideal candidate for an injectable dermal filler treatment, but they are especially recommended to treat those with the following conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles, creases, folds, or lines on the face
  • Sagging skin in the mid-face region and sunken cheeks
  • Crow’s feet, laugh lines, smile or frown lines at the corners of the eyes
  • Deep vertical creases extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Thin, brittle, flat, or undefined lips
  • Vertical lines surrounding the lip line sometimes called “smokers’ lines”
  • Volume replacement in the cheeks, eyebrows, face, and nose

What types of Dermal Fillers can I choose from?

There are many types of dermal fillers on the market, each designed to treat different areas of the face.  Dr. Keller and our team of specialists will assist you in choosing the most suitable treatment or treatment combination for your skin type in order to achieve your aesthetic goals. At Keller Plastic Surgery you may choose from the following dermal filler injections:

How are Dermal Fillers administered?

Dermal fillers are administered as injections using a very fine-gauge needle.  We may first numb the area with a topical anesthetic to prevent any potential discomfort during treatment. To treat fine lines and wrinkles, the filler is delivered to the outermost layers of skin, while treating the innermost layers of skin effectively reduces the appearance of deeper folds and creases. Some patients report a stinging sensation during the procedure, and some have reported minor discomfort following the treatment, but dermal fillers require no recovery period, and patients may resume regular activities immediately after treatment.

Do I have to prepare in advance for a Dermal Filler Treatment?

There is little to no preparation required before your dermal filler injections, however, you must inform Dr. Keller of any medications you may be taking, including aspirin or NSAIDs, as you may need to postpone taking certain medications in preparation for dermal injections.  If you have any type of skin condition or irritation such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection, treatment may have to be postponed until the condition has subsided.

Is there any downtime after Dermal Fillers?

There is no required recovery period following dermal filler treatments, and most patients are able to return to work and resume regular activities immediately upon leaving our office.

"Dear Dr.Keller and Staff, Please enjoy this treat and thanks to you for the wonderful care, you extended & continue to extend to me the throughout this whole process. You were there to answer every question and guide me step by step. I really appreciate all of you and Nina you are the best!" Thanks again, friendly J.
"Facial treatments promise great results, but often don’t deliver, especially for sensitive, large pore skin like mine. The CO2 Omnifit procedure is the exception. Joanne, Dr. Keller’s RN, administers the basically painless treatment, which takes about 30 minutes. After a few days of reddened skin, my face is smooth, fresh, and dewy. Even my husband has noticed the appreciable difference!" ...
"From the first day I walked into the Rejuvalase Medical Spa. I noticed the fresh flowers in the waiting room, a friendly smile and greeting upon arrival. Dr Keller took his time and addressed all of my questions and fears of which I had many. It’s nice not to feel rushed or unimportant by having a Dr who’s constantly looking at their watch. I know we have all had at least one of them! I assure you Dr Keller and Joanne Benda the registered nurse is all about their patients.…" ...
