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. Treatment of the lips 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, Filler can even provide 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.
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.

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.
