Everything You Need to Know About Dermal Fillers from The Center

Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance that delivers volume to the skin. Dermal fillers offered by Still are long-lasting, non-surgical options that contain a modified form of HA. Fillers that include HA are a top choice for patients—over 90% of filler patients receive HA dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved for clients age 22 and older for use in reducing the appearance of lines, increasing volume in skin and lips, and correcting facial scars.

What Dermal Fillers Treat

Although our bodies naturally produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, production of these proteins slows over time. By age 30, a variety of factors can contribute to a lack of plumpness in facial and neck skin, as well as the lips:

  • Pollution
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Sun Exposure

To restore a youthful appearance to the skin, dermal fillers can be injected into the face to increase fullness, in turn reducing moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of acne scars, and add volume to the lips.

How to Choose the Right Dermal Filler from The Center

Picking the right dermal filler is something you can do at your consultation with Still. Depending on where you want enhancements made, and what you want the final results to look like, you may be directed to one filler over another.

Still offers several different dermal fillers including:

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a long-lasting, non-surgical filler option that contains a modified form of HA. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a great option for many areas of the face and is a favorite in the lips. This product will last 12 months.

Juvederm Vollure XC

Vollure XC  injectable gel is for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and lips. It lasts up to 18 months.

Juvederm Voluma Xc

Voluma XC injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss and for augmentation of the chin region to improve the chin profile. When it is placed properly and an adequate amount of product is used, it may last for up to 2 years.

Juvederm Volbella XC

Volbella XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines or fine lines anywhere on the face, neck, and hands. Volbella is a thinner filler making it ideal for areas where the skin is delicate, like the lips and under-eye area. Results last up to 12 months.

What to Expect at Your Dermal Filler Appointment

Depending on how many units you’re having injected, you can expect to spend up to 30 minutes at your appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of our goals at The Center is to deliver subtle results. We want all of our clients to still look like themselves after receiving dermal fillers, only with less noticeable wrinkles and added volume. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.

Since this is a non-invasive procedure, you should require minimal downtown after your dermal filler injection(s). Most clients return to their daily routine immediately after leaving our office.

Following the injection(s), you should start to see results within the first 48 hours. The full effect of the procedure will be visible in 10-14 days.

Most clients experience a “bee sting” sensation at the area of the dermal filler injection. Bruising and swelling may last for up to 5 days following treatment. If a cannula is used, the sensations at the injection site may be more pronounced than if the fillers are injected with a needle.

Other side effects of FDA-approved fillers may include:

  • Allergic reactions (primarily to collagen)
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Tenderness

Depending on the type of dermal filler used and where it is injected, the results can last between 6 months and 5 years. It’s most common for clients to enjoy the results of their fillers for up to 1 year.

Your metabolism and activity levels can affect the longevity of dermal fillers, so please note that results do vary per person.
