Prepare Before You Plump – What to Know if You’re Thinking of Dermal Fillers

What to know before getting dermal fillers:

Dermal fillers can be an alternative to plastic surgery. Fillers smooth out the skin by filling in your wrinkles. Through the use of hyaluronic acid, temporary dermal fillers can enhance different facial features while adding volume and enhancing facial contours. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to store moisture which can give you a plump, hydrated look. This can result in a smoother, more youthful appearance.


There are different types of dermal fillers that can be used for different areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can be used to soften many common signs of aging for a natural look. Products such as JUVÉDERM®, Radiesse®, and Restylane® can restore volume that is lost through the natural aging process and provide an instant result plumping fine lines. Belotero® products can restore youthfulness to the face as well as be used to plump the lips.


Many areas of the face can be treated with dermal fillers such as:


  • Nasolabial Folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette Lines
  • Crows Feet
  • Tear Troughs (under-eye area)
  • Double Chin
  • Sagging Jowls
  • Lips
  • Nose
  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Frown Lines


Know before you go:

A typical treatment will take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area(s) being treated.

After one visit you should notice an immediate difference in the area treated, and the results can last between three to six months depending on the area being treated.
