Dermal Fillers

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers | Columbus Women's Care | Columbus, OH

Dermal Fillers are a collection of gel and paste-like substances that are injected into facial tissue to give a more youthful appearance. Through several small injections, fillers are added at different depths to the tissue. As a result, the dermal fillers decrease the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and compensate for bone loss. Restoring your confidence in your facial appearance in just one appointment.

Pure hyaluronic acid fillers are made in a lab and manufactured or cross-linked to have a certain plumping effect. For any individual who is concerned about having dermal fillers injected, hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body so an allergic reaction is rare. This is why Columbus Women’s Care prefers fillers that contain hyaluronic acid.


Candidates for Dermal Fillers

Anyone can benefit from dermal fillers who has not felt confident in their skin lately. However, patients must have appropriate expectations before having a cosmetic procedure done. Dermal fillers will not provide you with a “facelift” but instead a refreshed face. If patients have severe bone loss in the face or deep rhytids, wrinkles, they may require more aggressive treatments. Speak with a knowledgeable professional like Mica McCord to learn your options.

Belatero Balance

Belatero Balance is a unique hyaluronic acid filler that uses cohesive polydensified matrix. This allows the filler to blend in with the natural structure of the skin. We recommend this filler for the under eye area and results can last up to one year.

Juvederm

Volbella, Vollure, and Voluma are the newer Juvederm line of products. Each filler offers a different density and is cross-linked with hyaluronic acid uniquely so they can last longer than other fillers.

  • Volbella is for fine lines and wrinkles and is especially useful for those present around the mouth. Some prefer this for their lips if they just want hydration versus fullness
  • Vollure is designed to be injected more deeply and into more severe lines that other Juvederm products. This filler tends to stay where it is placed versus spreading but still remains soft. Vollure results last about 18 months.
  • Voluma is on the more expensive end of the spectrum but has some of the longest lasting results. This injection is the thickest, strongest gel of this category and makes a beautiful cheek that can last up to 2 years.

Types of Juvederm Fillers

The Juvederm line of products can be broken into two groupings. The main difference between them is the FDA approved duration of the product and the way the products are cross-linked. The results for Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus typically last from 6 months to one year.

  • Juvederm Ultra is the classic preparation that can be placed all over the face and gives the patient truly beautiful lips
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus has a bit more body so it will give more projection wherever it is placed.

Results of Dermal Fillers

The results from dermal fillers are immediate. However, Columbus Women’s Center prefers to see you 2 weeks after injections to determine if you are happy and see the final results. You might initially notice some swelling or bruising from the injection itself and even some lumps or bumps. All of these findings are normal and will resolve with time.


Side Effects of Facial Filler Injections

Some side effects of dermal fillers include cold sores, bruising, and allergic reactions. Patients with known cold sores should take preventative medication before injection. If bruising or ulceration occurs it can produce a blue or brown tint to the skin. If patients have an allergic reaction it is typically due to lidocaine within the fillers. However, many of the most popular fillers can come without lidocaine.

One of the major side effects of filler injections is vessel occlusion. This is a rare event that affects less than 0.06% of patients but is a medical emergency. Vessel occlusion occurs if the needle is placed in a vessel and “blocks” the vessel. When the vessel is blocked it can cause necrosis of the skin. This requires immediate intervention. Experienced, well-trained injectors work to avoid complications with excellent technique and knowledge of anatomy. In the rare event, an occlusion takes place staff at Columbus Women’s Care can dissolve the hyaluronic acid fillers.
