Dermal Filler Wrinkle Treatments

Restore Facial Fullness For a More Youthful Appearance

Dermal filler wrinkle treatments are injectable gels gaining in popularity as a quick, safe, and natural-looking way to temporarily restore facial volume and fullness. Healthy, youthful looking skin is attributed to collagen, responsible for our skin's basic structure, strength, and volume. As we age, collagen in the skin naturally breaks down causing unwanted wrinkles, lines and folds and an overall aged or tired-looking appearance. Dermal fillers work by rebuilding collagen and restoring fullness for a more youthful, healthy appearance.

The most important thing to consider when choosing a dermal filler wrinkle treatment is, #1 the injector, and #2 your skin type. During your consultation, our medical staff will discuss the dermal  filler wrinkle treatment options that will be best for your personal skin type and texture. Our board-certified dermatology team has collectively treated thousands of patients using dermal wrinkle filler treatments. In addition, Dr. Eric Finzi specializes in fat transfer surgery, a more permanent solution using your own body's fat to re-contour the face, hands and even the breasts.

About the Dermal Filler Wrinkle Treatment Procedure

Restoring facial fullness using a dermal filler wrinkle treatment is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and little to no downtime. For your comfort during the procedure, a practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic cream to numb the areas to be treated. Thirty minutes later, your dermatologist will cleanse the areas to be treated, and using an ultra-fine needle, inject the dermal filler gel under the skin's surface. They will then massage the filler gel to even it out and re-contour the face as needed. The treatment will last anywhere from six months up to one year depending on the type of filler treatment used.

Dermal Fillers Pre-Treatment Instructions:

One week prior to dermal filler wrinkle treatment, avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, St. John's Wort, high doses of Vitamin E supplements, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. These medications and supplements may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection sites. If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to a recurrence. To avoid this, talk to your dermatologist about medications that may minimize a recurrence.

Dermal Fillers Post Treatment Instructions:

Following your dermal filler wrinkle treatment, you might have some redness, bruising and swelling. This will normally last less than a week. Cold compresses may be applied in 10-minute intervals immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. If the reactions continue after a week, or other side effects occur, make an appointment to see your physician injector. It is important to avoid touching the treated areas within six hours following treatment. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activites should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappear. Avoid exercise and alcohol for six hours after treatment.

Possible Side Effects of Dermal Fillers:

Most commonly reported side effects are temporary injection-site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, and bruising. Exposure to sun and extreme cold should be avoided until initial swelling and redness have resolved. Patients should avoid substances that can prolong bleeding such as aspirin and ibuprofen. As with any injection, there is a risk of infection. Puncture sites should be kept clean and sterile to avoid infection.
