Signs You Could Benefit From Fillers

Close-up of a woman smiling joyfully after Juvederm facial fillersAs we age, the hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, but its production goes down as we age, leading to fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sagging skin. Dermal fillers are used to replace the diminishing hyaluronic acid. These skin injectables lead to smoother skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases.

Am I a Good Candidate for Fillers?

One of the tell-tale signs you may benefit from fillers is visible deep lines around your mouth, which may look like parentheses around the lips. Another sign is if you start to notice that your cheeks and mid-face are becoming hollow and sunken. Fillers are also used to augment lips.

Dermal fillers are popular among middle-aged women and men, but even young people in their 20s choose to use them to augment their lips, smooth any early wrinkles and to contour their facial shape.

Our experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan R. Fugo determines your candidacy. He wants you to love your results and to feel confident about your facial appearance.

Why Should You Consider Using Fillers?

Fillers are an effective, simple solution, when done correctly, create beautiful results. The main component in most fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This acid boosts retention of moisture by the skin, which rejuvenates volume of the skin and the underlying foundations.

Moreover, patients see the results immediately. Depending upon which product you choose and where the product is placed, longevity can vary from 6 months to more than 2 years.

The only way to know for sure if you should consider fillers is to talk to our experienced cosmetic surgeon and his team. Once Dr. Fugo examines your face while discussing your goals, he can tell you which non-surgical treatment options are capable of achieving those goals. Rely on him to describe each option, and to help you choose the best one for you.

Potential Side Effects of Dermal Fillers

Immediately following your injections, it is possible you may experience:

  • Swelling and tenderness
  • Bruising at the site of injection
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Dryness

For most people, these issues resolve within the first 24-72 hours. You are able to apply cosmetics immediately following your treatment.
