Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic injection that adds volume under your skin to address many aesthetic concerns. Westlake Laser and Aesthetics uses dermal fillers to:

  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Plump up lips
  • Fill in shallow contours 

Dermal fillers have various uses, and combining them with Botox® can provide a liquid facelift effect.

What are the types of dermal fillers?

Westlake Laser and Aesthetics meets each patient’s unique skin needs and beauty goals and uses a variety of dermal fillers. The types of dermal fillers offered include:

Juvéderm® 

Juvéderm is a gel-like hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Westlake Laser and Aesthetics uses Juvéderm dermal fillers to smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. 

Restylane®

Restylane is a natural nonanimal-based hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It smooths out lines and wrinkles, adds volume to thin lips, and fills in deep acne scars. 

Radiesse®  

Radiesse is a calcium-based dermal filler that not only immediately corrects your beauty concerns, but also stimulates the production of collagen to prolong the results.

In addition to the various brands of dermal fillers, Westlake Laser and Aesthetics can also smooth out lines and wrinkles and plump lips using your body fat. During a fat transfer dermal filler treatment, your provider harvests body fat from specific areas of your body using a small syringe and then prepares and injects it into the desired area. 

What can I expect during my dermal filler treatment?

The specifics of your dermal filler treatment depend on the type of dermal filler you choose as well as the treatment area. Your provider at Westlake Laser and Aesthetics reviews the details of your treatment plan prior to your dermal filler appointment, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

Your dermal filler treatment may take 15-60 minutes. To ease discomfort during your injections, your provider may apply a local topical anesthetic to your skin prior to treatment. Though downtime isn’t usually needed for brand dermal fillers, Westlake Laser and Aesthetics may suggest you take it easy for a few days after a fat transfer.

No matter what type of dermal filler you choose, you can expect to see the results of your cosmetic treatment immediately.

With good skin care practices, your dermal filler treatments may last a year or more, and your fat transfer may last several years.
