Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that act to boost volume in the treatment area. Most contain a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally. 

When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid adds volume, smooths lines and folds, and tightens skin. Some fillers include tiny microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a water-based gel.   

Dermal fillers work in two ways. First, they deliver an immediate boost in volume due to the gel-like formula. Second, they prompt your body to produce new collagen, which creates results that last even after your body absorbs and processes the filler material. 

Dr. Moradzadeh offers RadiesseⓇ, BeloteroⓇ, RestylaneⓇ, PerlaneⓇ, and the JuvédermⓇ line of dermal fillers. 

What areas can dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers come in a wide range of formulations. In general, fillers used in larger areas of your face like your cheeks or chin are thicker in consistency than those used around your eyes or lips. 

Some of the skin issues dermal fillers can improve include lost volume or a need for contouring in your:

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Chin
  • Forehead
  • Lower eyelid
  • Beneath your eyes
  • Temples
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Ear lobes
  • Jawline

Radiesse can even be injected into the tissues of your nose to correct bumps, depressions, and bends, a faster and less invasive option than a surgical nose job. There are even formulations that can plump your lips and define your lip line. You can also treat acne scars with dermal fillers.

Are fillers painful?

Needles administer all dermal fillers, but the process is not painful. You might feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but there is no significant discomfort.

You might experience some mild soreness and bruising in the treatment area for a couple of days after treatment. These effects will subside quickly, leaving you free to admire your beautiful, enhanced facial contouring. 

Most men and women who try dermal fillers are so happy with their results, they not only return for subsequent treatments but also introduce friends and family to the practice. This word-of-mouth advertising is something Dr. Moradzadeh deeply values.
