Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are specially formulated liquids injected into your face to restore lost volume. Common cosmetic fillers include:

  • Juvederm®: used for various treatments like reducing wrinkles or sagging skin
  • Radiesse®: adds volume and stimulates collagen production for ongoing results
  • Restylane®: lifts, defines, contours, enhances, and accentuates your features
  • Belotero®: rehydrates the skin, minimizes wrinkles, and augments lips

Dr. Kaur is highly skilled at providing effective and safe aesthetic treatments. During a consultation, she works closely with you to evaluate your areas of concern and determine the best dermal filler to reach your goals. Your recommended treatment plan might also include complementary therapies like Botox.

How do dermal fillers reverse the signs of aging?

Over time, your body produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid (substances that give your skin its youthful appearance and elasticity). Besides these internal changes, stress, weight changes, and sun exposure also cause skin damage. As a result, wrinkles develop, your face loses volume and elasticity, and the effects of gravity take their toll.

Dr. Kaur uses dermal fillers to address various cosmetic concerns and provide fullness, highlights, contour, balance, and definition. You can request dermal fillers if you want to achieve one or more of the following goals:

  • Diminish chin wrinkles
  • Reduce hollowed temples
  • Plump thin or uneven lips
  • Restore skin firmness
  • Restore fullness in the cheeks
  • Lift the brow or corners of the mouth
  • Add contour and redefining a drooping jawline
  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles, including marionette lines

Dermal fillers offer the benefits of a facelift without the pain or risks associated with surgery.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Most dermal filler treatments at Healing Touch Medical take a minimum of 30 minutes.

After cleansing your face with an antibacterial solution, Dr. Kaur evaluates the area and identifies the sites for your injections. Based on your treatment, she might apply a topical numbing agent to the skin or administer a local anesthetic.

Dr. Kaur injects small amounts of dermal filler under the surface of your skin until she obtains the desired effect. Results are immediate and last from six months to two years, depending on the filler you receive.

Following your treatment, you may have mild swelling, bruising, and minimal discomfort, but ice or cold compresses should relieve your symptoms. Dermal fillers aren’t painful and don’t require medication or downtime, but you should avoid strenuous activity for 24-48 hours.
