The latest generation of dermal fillers, when injected correctly, are among the most effective non-surgical anti-aging treatments. Fillers can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles, create a lift to sagging skin by restoring cheek volume, and create plumper, more attractive lips.

What are the best dermal fillers?

While there are several excellent products that could be used to enhance your facial look, the “best” dermal filler is the right dermal filler for the area to be treated. Dr. Flugstad may use several dermal fillers to achieve the refreshed look you envision. He most commonly prefers Juvederm or Restylane products. In the application of fillers, the success and subtlety of the outcome is the direct result of the skills of your injector. Dr. Flugstad takes a conservative approach, as he understands that his patients want to look refreshed and younger – not “worked on” or overfilled. Always choose your injector with care – it matters.

Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?

Candidates for dermal fillers should have realistic expectations concerning the results and be in overall good health. Dermal fillers are contraindicated for people with some types of autoimmune disease, such as Hashimoto’s, lupus, Crohn’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Will I see results right away?

With dermal fillers, your results are immediate. Lines, wrinkles, and creases will be smoothed, and you will watch the process happen. When you leave our clinic, your lines and wrinkles will be smoothed, and you will look more youthful and refreshed.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Each type and brand of filler lasts a specific period of time, although the actual time varies slightly patient to patient. Generally, you can expect to need retreatment within about three to six months. For dermal fillers to increase cheek volume, the formula is thicker and can last up to a year or even longer.

Do I need a facelift, or will dermal fillers make me look younger?

Many people can achieve a significant improvement in facial appearance with injectable dermal fillers. However, there comes a time when these products are no longer capable of creating a natural look, at which point you may want to consider a facelift – it is the ultimate method for facial rejuvenation, with long-lasting results. Dr. Flugstad will help you decide if facial fillers will benefit you.

Do dermal fillers have side effects?

The most common side effects of injections with dermal fillers is redness and swelling at the injection site. This typically goes away within hours or a few days. Most people simply return to their busy day with no concern after treatment. We will review your medical history to ensure you do not have a condition that could endanger you.

Whether dermal fillers are right for you will be determined by Dr. Flugstad during your consultation, at which time he will discuss your complete medical history, including any prescription and over-the-counter medications you are taking, as well as vitamins and herbal products. If a dermal filler is contraindicated, he will advise you on the optimal alternate treatment for your situation.
