Hyaluronic Acid Fillers:
Fillers are used to provide increased volume and treat non-dynamic facial wrinkles. They can be used to treat volume loss related to aging skin, trauma, or to augment volume in areas like the lips and under the eyes (called the tear troughs). Treatment of the lips and tear troughs is a particularly popular treatment even in patients in their 20s and can have lovely, natural results when performed by an experienced injector. Injected properly, fillers can even provide a lift to the facial skin otherwise known as “The Liquid Face Lift”. These results are natural appearing and do not require the time for recovery, cost, and risk of “going under the knife” for a surgical face lift.
How Do Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Work?
Fillers are a great way to freshen up your look. The hyaluronic acid in cosmetic fillers bonds to water molecules within the deeper layers of the skin. This increases the volume and health of the skin, reducing signs of aging for a younger and brighter look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
The best candidates for hyaluronic acid fillers are healthy individuals who want to improve signs of aging, augment the lips, or soften dark circles under the eyes. This is a non-surgical option for people who want younger-looking skin.
Hyaluronic acid fillers also work best for people committed to maintaining healthy skin. Lifestyle factors like smoking, drinking excessive alcohol, dehydration, prolonged sun exposure, and lack of sleep can cause new skin aging, so it is best to avoid these.
Why Come to Premier Dermatology for My Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
The injection of Cosmetic Fillers requires a deep understanding and knowledge of facial anatomy, specific filler characteristics, and indications, and is a bit of an art form. This procedure should never be performed by unqualified or inadequately trained providers. At Premier Dermatology you will be treated by a board-certified dermatologist and expert injector with more than 15 years of experience.
The Hyaluronic Acid Filler Consultation
A consultation for hyaluronic acid fillers will involve a conversation about your medical history, your areas of concern, and your general aesthetic philosophy. One of our experienced providers will assess your skin concerns and discuss the advantages of hyaluronic acid fillers to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
During the consultation, feel free to ask your dermatologist about filler options. Your dermatologist will explain the risks, benefits, and expectations and will recommend an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired appearance.
The Hyaluronic Acid Filler Session
A hyaluronic acid filler session can be as quick as your lunchbreak. The treatment area will be cleaned, and the injection sites will be marked. The filler will then be injected into the selected areas for treatment. After the injections, you are free to resume your daily activities without any need for recovery time, although we generally recommend avoiding exercise for 24 hours after filler placement to minimize bruising.

How Long Do Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Last?
Dermal Fillers last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending upon the filler used and location of use. The results are visible instantaneously. The recovery time following filler is generally quite easy, although some patients may experience bruising which can last up to 1-2 weeks. Significant bruising is more likely in patients taking blood thinners like aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, or coumadin. To learn more about fillers, or to find out if you are a candidate for treatment with these injectables, contact Premier Dermatology today for a consultation.
