Lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume are common results of the aging process. You can restore more youthful features with dermal fillers. These injectable treatments lift and soften wrinkles, restore fullness to your cheeks, and sculpt your features. 

What are Dermal Fillers? 

At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we use dermal fillers to reverse the appearance of aging and enhance your facial features. Your board-certified dermatologist will choose the best dermal filler for your needs. Treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, making dermal fillers a popular option for those with busy schedules.

What are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Dermal fillers use a variety of materials to achieve their results. The most popular filler material, hyaluronic acid, occurs naturally in your skin. It frequently appears in skincare products because it attracts and holds moisture in the skin. 

At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer the Juvederm®, Restylane®, and RHA

families of dermal fillers. These hyaluronic acid fillers provide a range of options for almost any area of the face. One of our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Tanzi, Dr. Shah, or Dr. Peters, can help you determine the best treatment for your cosmetic goals.

How to Prepare for Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have a well-established safety record, and many people have no side effects after treatment. A bit of preparation can help you minimize common effects such as minor bruising. Before your dermal filler appointment, we will recommend that you:

  • Avoid taking NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen
  • Do not consume alcohol
  • Avoid smoking
  • Stop taking other medications if instructed
  • Tell your provider about any supplements or vitamins you take

Several of these factors can increase bleeding. While you will not have any bleeding after dermal filler injections, you can develop small spots of bruising. Following these tips can minimize the risk of any bruising or other effects. Smoking inhibits blood flow and impairs healing after any type of treatment.

What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers treat lines, wrinkles, and volume loss almost anywhere on your face. Popular uses for fillers include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Cheeks and mid-face
  • Thin lips
  • Tear troughs
  • Backs of the hands
  • Indented scars

By smoothing lines and restoring volume, dermal fillers can help you regain a more youthful look. They can also enhance your appearance by plumping your lips or sculpting your cheeks. In the hands of an expert injector, dermal filler results look smooth and natural, even around the mouth and other active areas. 

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Each person responds to dermal fillers a bit differently, so some might see their results last more or less time than others. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers usually last from six to eighteen months. Maintenance treatments once or twice a year can keep your results looking smooth and youthful. 

Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to.
