Dermal fillers, or facial fillers, add volume to areas of the skin impacted by signs of aging. While formulated differently, dermal fillers are intended to address fine lines, deep wrinkles, and the sunken-in regions of the face, such as cheeks. Some fillers can also address skin laxity, add volume to lips, and smooth skin on the décolletage and hands. 

Nonsurgical, well-tolerated, and incredibly effective dermal fillers can produce a softer, more youthful, and more attractive appearance after one treatment. We offer a range of fillers at our Leawood office, enabling Dr. Young to select the appropriate formulation for each need.

What are Dermal fillers?

In general, dermal fillers increase the volume in the deeper layers of the skin. We use JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® products, all made with hyaluronic acid. This substance is already in the body, so there is no risk of rejection or allergic reactions. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work by adhering to water molecules in the skin. The bond between HA particles and water molecules is strong enough to sustain volume for several months.

Candidates for Dermal Fillers

The best candidates for dermal fillers are men and women unhappy with how aging, environmental factors and genetics have changed their appearance. You may be the ideal candidate if you struggle with moderate to severe facial wrinkling, skin laxity, or similar issues related to volume loss. The best way to find out is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Young. 

Nonsurgical and minimally invasive fillers are a safe choice for many patients. During your consultation, Dr. Young will assess your medical history and other relevant information to help you determine if dermal fillers best fit your needs. 

Dermal filler treatment offers several advantages to adults who are interested in enhancing their appearance: 

  • Minimally invasive treatment does not require any downtime. 
  • Treatment sessions usually take less than half an hour. 
  • Results of dermal filler injections develop in real-time so you get immediate satisfaction. 
  • Dermal fillers have been used for many years and have a strong safety track record. 
  • Dermal fillers can be combined with neuromodulators for enhanced results. 
  • Dermal fillers aren’t just for wrinkle reduction! They can also add volume to enhance facial features.

Dermal Filler Procedure

Your dermal filler appointment will most likely last less than an hour, including our brief consultation in which we discuss your concerns and desired improvements. The injection portion of your appointment may take just five to 15 minutes. Because most dermal fillers contain a mild analgesic, we don’t have to spend time waiting for a topical numbing cream to work. No additional pain relief techniques are needed thanks to the inclusion of numbing medication in the filler.

Dermal Filler Recovery and Results

  • 1-3 DAYS

Recovery from dermal fillers is incredibly fast. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. 

There may be some soreness and swelling at the injection site, along with slight redness and potential bruising, but these things should fade within a few days without any effort on your part. 

Results from hyaluronic acid fillers are both immediate and gradual. There will be some corrections as soon as treatment has been completed, which will continue to improve for three to four weeks. Most people achieve optimal results around the one-month mark. 

Everyone is different. The time it takes for a dermal filler to integrate into your tissue may be slightly shorter or longer than average. We will help you determine when you can expect to see results during your treatment consultation.
