Dermal fillers can help patients in a variety of situations. Find out more about dermal fillers with Kimberly Bacharach, PA-C at CU Dermatology in Boulder, CO.
What is a dermal filler?
As we age, our skin starts decreasing its production of substances like collagen and hyaluronic acid, which keeps it taut and supple. This results in sagging or wrinkled skin and an aging appearance. Dermal fillers use a substance which naturally occurs in your body and injects it into the facial skin. The filler plumps the area under the skin, providing a fuller, younger look and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Am I a candidate for a dermal filler?
Good candidates for this procedure should be in overall good health with realistic expectations for their treatment.
What can I expect from the dermal filler process?
Your doctor will cleanse the skin and, in some cases, apply an anesthetic to help minimize discomfort. Most patients report that they feel only a small pinch as their doctor injects the filler into the facial skin. After the procedure, you may experience some redness or swelling at the injection sites but this should clear up on its own after a day or two.
