Dermal fillers restore volume and are used to correct wrinkles and soft tissue loss due to aging. They are injected into the superficial layers of the skin and are most commonly used in the smile lines, lips and corners of the mouth. Advanced techniques involve the use of certain fillers around the eyes and cheek bones to restore a more youthful look.

People with particular medical conditions or those undergoing immunosuppressive therapy may not be good candidates for any treatments or procedures that require a skin injection procedure, due to a risk of infection.
It’s important to reveal all your medical history to our medical staff on your initial pre-treatment consultation so she can make an informed decision about your treatment plan.
Will I need Pain Medication?
Filler injection isn’t usually too uncomfortable unless you’re very sensitive; you can request use of an anesthetic cream which can be applied to the area before injection.
The lips are a quite sensitive, and Cosmetic Doctor can use dermal filler product containing the local anesthetic lidocaine to make the experience more comfortable for the patient.
Are there any Risks?
Filler-related reactions are very rare, especially when they are professionally used by a doctor. There are some reports of injection-related reactions that happen after any injection, like a bit of bruising or selling, which resolve on their own in a few days.
Lips can be a little tender and there may be some swelling for a few days, although we use Juvederm Smile™ which has no downtime and minimal swelling.
