Fillers Q & A

How do facial fillers work?

As you age, your facial skin may start to sag, and your cheeks may lose volume. This loss can make wrinkles look more prominent and depress your appearance. The change in facial volume occurs due to the natural loss of subcutaneous fat and hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that adds volume to your face.

Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, add hyaluronic acid to plump areas such as:

  • Shallow cheeks
  • Fine lines
  • Thin lips
  • A variety of face contours
  • Recessed scarring
  • Moderate wrinkles

Each filler works slightly differently to treat specific areas and conditions. Dr. Ahdoot takes the time to carefully review your skin and goals when recommending a personalized treatment plan.

Which dermal fillers are available?

Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine offers a variety of injectable fillers to help you achieve your aesthetic, anti-aging goals, including:

  • Juvederm® for around the mouth and lips
  • Juvederm Voluma for the cheek area
  • Restylane® for the cheeks and between the eyebrows
  • Radiesse® for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and cheek augmentation
  • Perlane for the cheeks, lines around the mouth, and wrinkles in the forehead

Each product offers different benefits for your face. Dr. Ahdoot evaluates the details of your face, aging pattern, and skin health to determine how to use dermal fillers to give you the best results.

How long do the results of dermal fillers last?

The results of dermal filler injections last anywhere from six to 18 months. Your metabolism and the product used determine the effects’ duration.

As time passes, the effects gradually diminish. Then, you return to Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine of Irvine, California for maintenance injections to preserve your new look.

Do dermal filler injections hurt or have any side effects?

Dr. Ahdoot administers dermal fillers through a needle, so expect to have slight associated pinching and pain. Typically, the treatment is brief, and the discomfort minimal.

Since dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a compound naturally produced by your body, adverse reactions typically don’t occur. You may have slight redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites for a day or two following treatment.
