WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
THE DEAL WITH DERMAL FILLERS
At their core, dermal fillers are a class of injectable treatments used to address a variety of aesthetic concerns. They are placed under the skin to increase volume and promote healthy skin for the future. Some of the most common materials used as dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid and collagen — two compounds critical to healthy skin. These can not only soften wrinkles, but they also help your skin rejuvenate itself. It’s the best of both worlds!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLERS?
HOW THEY HELP YOU
Dermal fillers have a lot of advantages. They are easy to apply, their effective but subtle results, and they don’t require any of the pain or downtime that comes with surgeries. Plus, they work more quickly than superficial treatments while also encouraging healthy skin from the inside out. These procedures are very versatile and can address many aesthetic concerns.
- Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines
- Sunken features, especially on the cheeks, under the eyes, or on the hands
- Asymmetry of the nose
- Thin lips
- Recessed scars

YOUR DERMAL FILLER PROCEDURE
When you come in for your dermal filler treatment, you can expect to enjoy a relatively straightforward process. In fact, most procedures are finished in less than an hour. Your aesthetic professional will first thoroughly clean the area and may apply a light, topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort. Then they’ll inject your chosen filler using a syringe. Most applications utilize a series of injections around the targeted zone to ensure even effects. Once they’re done, they’ll review your aftercare instructions, answer any questions, and then you’re out of there!
DERMAL FILLER RECOVERY
NO DOWNTIME, NO PROBLEM
Recovery from your dermal filler treatment will probably be fairly simple and painless. Keep in mind that different types of fillers have different recovery requirements, so follow your provider’s instructions closely. Typically, most Jacksonville dermal filler patients can resume most normal activities right after their procedure. Make sure you protect the treated zone from stress or pressure, so don’t do things like exercise strenuously or rub the area you just had work on since this can lead to more bruising and swelling, or it can move the filler from its intended area. Some mild effects are normal. Things like:
- Redness or bruising
- Numbness or hypersensitivity
- Lumps or knots at injection sites
- An “overfilled” appearance
If you experience any excessively painful or lasting effects, let us know, and we’ll help you find a solution.
DERMAL FILLER RESULTS
A NATURALLY AMAZING YOU
Your final results may take a few days to come in, but you should notice a difference immediately. The filler will settle over the first week or so, leaving behind your new, enhanced-but-natural look.
These results last for varying lengths of time depending on a variety of factors — things like which filler was used, your lifestyle, and how your body reacts to the treatment. In some patients, the results last six months, while in others they last as long as two years. Some conditions may require more than one application, but maintaining proper skin care is critical to making your results last as long as possible.
