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.

"I recently made the switch to Clearview and I couldn't be happier. I've seen a handful of dermatologist throughout the years and these offices collaboratively have given me the kindest, most informative, professional skill and attention I have ever experienced at any medical facility. I had tried to begin a very strict medication a year ago back in May 2022. After 7 attempts to coordinate with my old dermatologist offices to process my registration I gave up and called Clearview. They got me an appointment within a few weeks, the staff was super friendly and even remembered me on my second visit! They walked me through all the steps for this strict registration and side effects of medication to where I had a full history lesson and no questions remained. Knowing how and why are always important to me so I appreciate the additional lengths they went to. I was going to lose masshealth in the near future but was mislead about the time-frame this would happen. In the final stages of registering for my medication I found out I was no longer covered. I did everything I could to get a new insurance reinstated as fast as possible while this new script was waiting at the pharmacy with a $400 out of pocket cost. When I thought I had no more options I called Clearview and they were on top of it, I couldn't have asked for better assistance. They even provided me with alternative pharmacies with lower out of pocket costs. If you haven't heard of Apotheca check them out too. By the eleventh hour when I had already waited a full year to get started on this medication it all pulled through and I couldn't have done without the assistance of the doctors and staff at Clearview. Thank you so much."- M.G. / Google / May 09, 2023

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.
