Injectable Dermal Fillers
The term “fillers” refers to a variety of different injectables that are used to fill lines or sunken areas in the face. Each class of injectables bears unique characteristics for improvement and longevity. These advanced non-surgical treatments can help reduce deep wrinkles and lines along the face, add volume to facial features such as the lips and cheeks, and ultimately give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Okamoto, offers an array of dermal filler options, each with specific benefits that can help you meet your needs. Our options include:
- Restylane® Lyft
- JUVÉDERM Ultra®
- JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus®
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
To determine the most appropriate filler for your needs, a consultation with Dr. Okamoto is necessary. During the procedure, the chosen dermal filler is injected into the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. These areas can be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Dermal filler procedures typically take 30 minutes or less to complete, and most patients are able to resume normal daily activities right after treatment. You can expect a mild degree of redness and swelling around the injection sites, but this should dissipate within a few days.
Results will vary depending on the type of dermal filler used for treatment. However, many people experience the effects of dermal fillers for at least six months and even up to a year or more in some cases. Plus, results can often be maintained with occasional follow-up treatments. Dr. Okamoto will fully explain your options and what you can expect during your initial consultation.
