What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that use an injectable gel or solution to restore lost volume, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, enhance natural features, and rejuvenate the face for a more youthful appearance.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Interested in learning more about dermal fillers and how they can help you achieve your desired cosmetic and aesthetic goals? Read through the frequently asked questions below where we cover the different types of fillers, how long they last, their side effects, the cost of dermal fillers, and make sure to contact our board-certified dermatologists to schedule an appointment. 

There are many different types of fillers available. At the Center for Surgical Dermatology, we primarily use hyaluronic acid fillers or poly-L-lactic acid fillers. 

  • Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin, which allows the product to incorporate seamlessly in the skin and provide natural-looking results.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid is a substance commonly found in sutures/stitches and stimulates the skin to produce collagen, leading to an overall improvement in skin texture. It is usually placed below the dermal layer to produce natural enhancements of facial contours.

This depends on the type of dermal filler used, as well as where it is placed. For instance, we find that dermal fillers injected into locations that involve a lot of movement, such as the lips, don’t last as long as other locations. In general, most dermal fillers can last anywhere from 3 months to over two years. 

Dermal fillers can be used to achieve a variety of aesthetic goals, including: 

  • Restoring lost volume in the face, such as in the cheekbones and jaw area.
  • Enhancing one’s natural features, such as the lips or cheeks.
  • Filling in fine lines, such as around the mouth, to smooth out the skin.
  • Reducing the appearance of neck lines, or what some might call the “necklace” lines.
  • Treating acne scars by smoothing contours.
  • Improving unwanted signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Overall, there are several cosmetic issues that dermal fillers can address and improve. If you have any questions about whether or not dermal fillers can help you achieve your skin care goals, please get in touch with our dermatologists at the Center for Surgical Dermatology today! We’re happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Dermal fillers are safe for most people. However, fillers should be avoided by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to products in the filler, or have an active infection or skin inflammation. 

We recommend talking with your provider specifically about your goals and health history. Also, discuss with your provider whether or not you have had a Covid vaccine or are planning to receive the Covid vaccine.

As with any injectable treatment, there are a few side effects to consider. Dermal fillers side effects may include redness, swelling, itching, tenderness, bruising, and pain. 

One of our top tips is eating fresh pineapple for a day or two before and after your injection. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that has been shown to help reduce pain, swelling and bruising. 

Additionally, to reduce your side effects risk, we always recommend choosing a licensed provider who has experience administering injectables. The board-certified dermatologists at the Center for Surgical Dermatology are experts in helping our patients achieve exceptional results with dermal fillers!

The cost of dermal fillers depends on the extent of work you’re having done and the filler substance used. Similar to any other cosmetic or aesthetic treatment, the cost will vary from clinic to clinic, but the general rule of thumb is that one dermal filler syringe starts at $500.
