What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are compounds injected into the face and body to enhance volume lost to the aging process and address concerns such as wrinkles, lines, creases, nasolabial folds, and hollowness beneath the eyes. For men, fillers are often used to provide enhanced definition for a stronger jawline. Each treatment is carefully curated to reflect the patient’s unique wishes for improvement.

How Are Dermal Fillers Formulated?

Many fillers today are engineered with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring compound with a gel-like consistency. HA is a critical component in the structure of youthful complexions, as it binds to water molecules, hydrating the skin from within.

What Concerns Can Be Treated with Dermal Fillers?

  • Smile lines stretching from the nose to the mouth
  • Marionette lines stretching from the mouth to the chin
  • Creases around the lips
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Depressions or indented scars
  • A weak or recessed chin
  • Imperfections in the nasal tip or bridge

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

Dermal filler injections are typically performed using a topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment, ensuring the patient’s comfort and relaxation. A series of small injections are then made according to your unique treatment plan. Most filler sessions take around 20-30 minutes, allowing the patient to resume work immediately afterward.

Recovery and Results

One of the reasons busy, active men love dermal fillers is that they can quickly resume their normal schedules; there is no downtime. Minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites may occur, but these side effects are short-lived and usually fade by the end of the day. Ice can be applied to the treatment areas to help mitigate these issues.

Patients should avoid strenuous exercise and intense heat for around 24-48 hours after their sessions. Results are usually evident right away and can last 9-18 months, depending on the combination of fillers chosen by Dr. Parakh.
