What Are Dermal fillers?
As we age, our face can begin to lose volume, which causes wrinkles. Fortunately, dermal fillers — also known as wrinkle fillers — can replace this lost volume in order to give the face a more desirable shape and alleviate the appearance of wrinkles. They are minimally invasive, which makes them ideal for anyone hoping to avoid the risks or downtime associated with more invasive procedures. Additionally, the treatment itself is incredibly quick to perform, making it easy to fit in during a lunch break or short lull in your schedule. Clearview Dermatology in Hudson, MA offers a wide variety of options, including Restylane® and XEOMIN®. Our skilled team is extremely experienced in using dermal fillers to enhance the face of patients of all ages by improving volume, smoothing out the skin, eliminating wrinkles, and reducing fine lines.
Am I A Candidate For Dermal Fillers?
The best candidates for dermal fillers would be anyone seeking to decrease the presence of fine lines and wrinkles without resorting to a surgical facelift. Typically, those with significant signs of aging or who have recently lost a significant amount of weight have spots on their face that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes make them great candidates for dermal fillers. They are also a great option for men and women who do not want to risk the scarring that can result from a surgical facelift.

How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?
During your consultation, you'll discuss your goals, as well as areas of concern, with one of our expert team members. They will use this detailed information in order to recommend the specific product that should provide the results you desire. At this point, we will numb the targeted area(s) to ensure your utmost comfort during the treatment. The chosen dermal filler will then be slowly injected into each of the treatment areas until the chosen volume has been attained.
What Can I Expect After Dermal Fillers?
Injectable fillers are done as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. Due to the use of an anesthetic, the process is typically pretty tolerable and requires little to no downtime afterward. You should expect swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms should dissipate quickly. Results typically last from six months to a year, depending on the product and the placement of the injections. To maintain optimal results, we may recommend touch-ups.
Injectable fillers FAQ
Are dermal fillers for me?
Candidates for dermal fillers notice some loss of volume in the lips or contours of the face. Adults in good health who want to combat early signs of aging should look into injectable fillers at our clinic. Men and women with more severe signs of aging may need other treatment options.
Are injectable fillers painful?
Dermal fillers are administered using a small needle, which means treatment will feel like a small pinch. Some fillers come pre-mixed with a kind of anesthetic — so the procedure is more comfortable. Patients who are concerned about pain or discomfort can speak with a member of our experienced team for more information.
What can I do to improve my dermal filler results?
We advise dermal filler patients to avoid blood-thinning medications for several days before and after their procedure to reduce bleeding and unwanted side effects. Our staff also recommends postponing strenuous activities or pressing down on the injection site for at least one day.
How much do injectable fillers cost?
Costs for a wrinkle filler treatment will vary based on the type of filler and how much is needed to achieve the desired results. During your initial consultation, your injector will create your customized treatment plan that fits your needs and wants. After this, your injector will be able to provide you with a cost estimate, which will include any current specials we have.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, address lines and wrinkles (particularly in the forehead and in the corners of the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Dermal fillers add volume to your face to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and some scars. Dermal fillers can also be used to create fuller lips and cheeks plus to rejuvenate the hands.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can improve signs of aging throughout your face by smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be injected into mild to moderate parentheses, marionettes, and corner lines near your nose and mouth. They can also add volume to your lips and cheeks.
