Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers(dermal fillers) are substances which can be injected into areas of the face in order to restore a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to treat sunken facial areas, creases, lines, wrinkles and even to enhance the lips. There are a variety of injectable fillers.

How long does the procedure for dermal fillers last?

The procedure is a quick one, usually taking no more than forty-five minutes to complete. A small amount of topical numbing cream is applied to the areas that are to be treated. This is allowed to set for approximately 15-20 minutes. The dermal fillers also have lidocaine in them to keep you comfortable. There is very little pain associated with dermal fillers.

Should I plan to take time off from work after my dermal fillers procedure?

Normal activities, including work, can usually be resumed right away after most injectable filler procedures.

Are there any risks associated with dermal fillers?

Aside from the typical minor swelling and bruising that can occur, there are other risks when using aesthetic injections. These may include allergic reaction, acne flare-ups, asymmetry of facial features, bleeding, migration of the material away from the injection site and temporary numbness.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers are not permanent and will need to be “touched-up” at regular intervals. Each person metabolizes injectable fillers at a different rate. Some last a few months, other can last a few years. The results of a Restylane Lyft® injection can last for up to one year. Juvederm Voluma  can last up to two years. Botox® and Dysport® last about 3-4 months.

Are Results Immediate?

Dermal fillers really deliver almost instant gratification. Many patients see a difference almost immediately, although they may be initially disguised by minor swelling in some cases. When using Botox® or Dysport® results may take three to four days.

What dermal fillers are available?

Popular dermal fillers include Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®,Juvéderm®, Juvéderm Voluma®, and Belotero®. These fillers are made of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. Radiesse® is a calcium based dermal filler, which stimulates your own production of collagen while replenishing facial volume. Sculptra® is a poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra® stimulates collagen production over a period of time.  Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra® results are not immediate but will become apparent over a few months.

How do I know which dermal filler is right for me?

There are so many injectables on the market and it can be very confusing to know which one is right for you. The right filler for you will depend on the improvements you want to gain and the areas being treated.  Sometimes I will use a combination of products depending upon what your exact needs are.  Your options and my recommendations will be thoroughly discussed with you at your consultation.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

Dermal fillers are usually priced by the syringe, and the cost varies by product. The number of syringes needed depends on the desired improvement. Typically the price ranges from $500-$900 per syringe.

I have thin lips can dermal fillers help with this?

Yes. While the improvements are temporary, injectable fillers such as Juvederm Voluma® or Restylane Lyft® work well in the lips and provide natural looking results.

Who performs the dermal fillers treatment?


All of the dermal fillers treatments are performed by Dr. Michael Devlin.  While many other offices and spas do not have a doctor perform the dermal fillers injections, at Devlin Cosmetic Surgery we believe that this sets us apart.  I am involved with your cosmetic surgery goals every step of the way.

Will I bruise?


This varies from person to person. However, facial fillers, may result in mild bruising that can be easily covered with concealer.  Make-up can be applied the same day for camouflage, if necessary.
