As you age, your skin can lose volume, and wrinkles and fine lines may emerge. Our plastic surgeons at Modern Surgical Arts of Denver can help you improve the look of volume loss, fine lines, and wrinkles with cosmetic fillers. Cosmetic fillers are safe and have been used by over a million Americans to enhance or rejuvenate their appearances.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers, sometimes called soft tissue fillers, are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid. They fill in wrinkles and add volume and fullness to soft tissue. Dermal fillers are frequently placed on the lips but are also placed in different parts of the face, including around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, and jawline.

Candidates for Dermal Filler

It is important to note that not all procedures are for everyone. Generally, good candidates for fillers include those who are physically healthy, do not smoke, and are committed to maintaining good skin health. Our team at Modern Surgical Arts of Denver will consult with you before treatment to determine if the treatment is right for you and guide you through the process.

Dermal Filler Procedure

Your dermal filler procedure will begin with your injector specialist numbing your treatment region. After the area is effectively cleansed, numbed, and prepped, you will be injected with the dermal filler that best fits your needs. Each dermal filler treatment will take between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on your treatment goals.

Dermal Filler Results and Recovery

Most activities can be resumed immediately after your treatment, but it is recommended that physical activity be avoided for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. If you notice any extra swelling or bruising, contact us right away. We may recommend a certain regime for you to follow regarding skin care and other activities. Depending on the filler you selected, our specialists will provide guidelines and a recovery plan.

The life of dermal fillers depends on how your body reacts to the treatment and on the type of dermal filler used, but most will last between six and twelve months, while others can last longer. You should schedule regular maintenance appointments as needed to maintain your desired results.
