Benefits Guide to Derma Fillers

Juvederm, Restylane and others

Ideally fillers would last about a year. Over injections multiple times a year is avoided in most instances. In this manner adjustments are made for normal aging and weight changes.  Today’s cosmetic products are getting closer to the ideal every year.

What are fillers used to treat?

Dermafillers are generally used for lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to plump and define lips and fill hollow areas on the face. Here are some of the areas where they work best:

  • nasolabial fold – lines from the nose to the mouth
  • melomental fold – lines from the mouth to the chin 
  • above the upper lip
  • expression lines from frowns, smiling and laughter
  • volumizing the lips and giving them definition
  • restoring volume to cheekbones or cheeks
  • to fill out the backs of the hands and make veins look less prominent
What are the cosmetic side effects?
You may have swelling for 24-72 hours, especially with injections in the lips.
