Dermal fillers are designed to decrease facial lines and assist in restoring fullness and volume to a person's face. As a person ages, he or she begins to lose subcutaneous fat, which is fat located under the skin. This permits the development of crow's feet and smile lines. Sun exposure, genetics and certain lifestyle choices also impact the skin.

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that work to plump the skin and fill in lines and less significant wrinkles on a person's face. Dermal fillers are considered a way through which more drastic types of surgical interventions can be delayed.

The cost of dermal filling depends on the injectable substance being used, the number of sites at issue and even the geographic location of the provider. Overall, dermal filling is considered a cost-effective alternative to more invasive options. Dermal injections are undertaken in select clinics and not at a hospital or medical center.

How Do Dermal Filler Procedures Work?

The dermal filler process begins with an assessment of a person's face. This process includes what is called mapping. Mapping is the identification of specific spots on a person's face where dermal filler injections will be made.

The identified injections are cleaned with an antibacterial agent. An anesthetic ointment is applied to the skin to reduce any potential discomfort or pain. In the alternative, local anesthesia may be utilized. Although the injections themselves are not entirely painless, most people do tolerate the minimal discomfort rather easily.

Once these steps are completed, the dermal filler is then injected into each of the previously identified sites on the face. The injection at each location takes only a matter of seconds. The whole process lasts about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how many injection sites are involved.

There are times in which dermal filling is one of the elements of a more comprehensive process of working to improve a person's looks. For example, a person may have dimpleplasty in conjunction with dermal fillings.

Recovery from dermal filling usually is swift and uneventful. A person may experience some minimal discomfort and a bit of swelling. Normally, icepacks are effective at minimizing discomfort and swelling. A person normally is able to return to normal day-to-day activities following dermal injections. Milder facial cleaning products may be recommended. The discomfort is so minimal even over-the-counter pain medications are unnecessary.
