Introduction to Dermal Fillers

The older we get, our bodies lose volume in the four major structural components of our face: skin, fat, muscle, and bone – all of which show the effects of aging – and Dermal Fillers may help. If you have noticed a retraction in your jawline, a descending nose or cheekbones, or a loss of skin elasticity, Dr. Golger and his team provide our patients in Scottsdale Dermal Fillers to help them fight the effects of aging and get you looking younger again. To learn more about the treatment, please keep reading below.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Some of the major benefits that Deraml Fillers offer our Scottsdale patients include:

  • Delivers natural-looking results
  • Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrates, softens, and increases the volume of your skin
  • Increases collagen and elastin production
  • Lifts tired cheeks
  • Results are practically immediate
  • Safe
  • Treatment is quick and effective

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin and are used to address many common concerns such as smoothing out deep under-eye circles, lifting cheekbones, increasing lip volume, or rejuvenation of your hands. Composed of a variety of substances, both natural and synthetic, the most common compound used is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance naturally found in our skin and plays a major role in keeping the skin hydrated and volumized, caused by a lack of collagen and elastin production.

HA fillers are excellent for facial augmentation and the treatment of nasolabial creases, marionette lines, fine lines, and wrinkles. Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility, and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

Who Are The
Best Candidates
For Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for Scottsdale Dermal Fillers are those looking to fix the following conditions:

  • A receding chin
  • Deep nose-to-mouth lines
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Minor nose deformities
  • Thinning or sunken cheeks caused by a loss of volume
  • Thin or unevenly shaped lips

It also helps potential candidates to maintain realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment, keep a positive attitude, and be in overall good health.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting Dermal Fillers in Scottsdale is to contact our office and schedule your consultation. Dr. Golger will be right there with you to answer any questions you may have about the treatment, listen to your aesthetic goals, and examine the area(s) you would like to treat. You will also be asked about your medical history, during which, you should be as open and honest as possible to help prevent any potential risks. At the end of your consultation, Dr. Golger will have crafted a treatment plan just for you. If you agree with the plan, then you will be able to have your treatment performed right then and there, or if you need to, you can schedule a treatment date with our Patient Coordinator.

What to Expect on the Day of Dermal Fillers

When you come in for your Dermal Fillers, our provider will begin by cleaning the area being treated and applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection for a comfortable experience. Some filler products also contain lidocaine, which is a mild anesthetic, to help minimize discomfort.

Then, using a very thin needle, the filler will be injected into strategic areas to fill out the desired location(s) that was discussed during your consultation. Dr. Golger will take his time to ensure that each treated area is injected, massaged, and evaluated thoroughly. If needed, an additional filler may be used to achieve your desired results.

Depending on your personalized treatment plan, the process can range from 15 to 60 minutes.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

After your Dermal Filler treatment, you should be able to notice some immediate results from the filler injections. Mild bruising and swelling can occur in some patients, but these are temporary reactions and should subside over a few days. Although you can go back to your normal activities right after treatment, we highly encourage you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activities.
