Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that enhance your facial volume, fill out fine lines and wrinkles, and elevate your facial contours. They essentially restore facial volume lost due to age, making your skin look fuller, smoother, and more youthful. Brand Surgical Institute carries a comprehensive suite of dermal fillers that restore collagen and hyaluronic acid reserves to reverse the signs of aging and revitalize your complexion.

How do dermal fillers work?
Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and taut — it binds your skin tissues together. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that binds 1,000x its weight in water, making your facial skin look smooth, supple, and voluminous. The age-related loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid from your skin is responsible for most signs of aging, such as hollow cheeks, wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume in targeted regions on the face to reverse the signs of aging and elevate your facial contours. Different dermal fillers have different consistencies and formulations and work in different ways. Some dermal fillers add hyaluronic acid molecules underneath the skin to restore facial volume. Others stimulate natural collagen production to reverse signs of aging, making your skin look smooth and youthful.

What happens during dermal filler treatments?
Dermal fillers are administered during in-office treatments that conclude within 30 minutes. The cosmetic provider will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to identify the ideal fillers for you. Different dermal fillers are suitable for different treatment areas, so the treatment must be personalized according to your needs. The cosmetic provider will select the ideal collection of fillers for you.
The cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin, following which they apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. Most dermal fillers contain lidocaine, so anesthesia isn’t necessary, but a numbing gel may provide mental relief. The cosmetic provider will carefully deliver the chosen dermal fillers into the targeted areas on your skin using ultrafine needles. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
What is recovery like after dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers may cause mild post-treatment swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites, but these side effects dissipate within a few days. You can resume most of your daily activities immediately, but please avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two.
What are the results of dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers produce instant results — you will notice the results as you walk out of the surgical center. But the results of collagen-inducing fillers will appear gradually over several weeks or months as your body produces new collagen fibers. The final results should last several months or years, depending on the chosen fillers and treatment areas.
