Dermal Filler Treatment and Services

Dermal fillers will enhance your facial features for a more youthful appearance. This minimally invasive treatment can remove wrinkles, smooth and soften facial creases, plump out thin lips and shallow contours, and improve the appearance of acne scars.

Are you asking, “Where can I find dermal fillers near me?” Here at Smokey Point Skin in Arlington, we have incredible filler treatments tailored just for you!

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Our dermal filler injections are safe, injectable substances containing hyaluronic acid. Just a quarter teaspoon of this gel-like substance can bind one-and-a-half gallons of water! It can fill in areas of your face to enhance your appearance and reverse volume loss due to aging. 

Here at Smokey Point Skin, we exclusively use the hyaluronic acid dermal filler ranges Juvéderm by Allergan and Restylane by Galderma. These are the most trusted dermal filler producers and are solidly backed by technology.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Tiny, precisely injected amounts of dermal fillers add volume directly where desired, to rapidly rejuvenate your appearance. They add volume to the skin and instantly reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face.

Each type of dermal filler is designed for a particular texture, density, and injection depth. Different fillers work better for different facial areas, restoring a natural, softer look and smoothing away those tiresome facial imperfections around your mouth, nose, and under the eyes.

Why Are Dermal Fillers Used?

Facial lines caused by aging, sun exposure, genetics, and certain medications can affect the way you present yourself to the world. You may also be unsatisfied with features that you feel detract from your visual appeal and could be augmented.

 

Some people opt for expensive, invasive plastic surgeries, such as facelifts. However, dermal filler procedures are a gentler, cheaper, and far less drastic way to reduce facial lines and restore fullness without plastic surgery.

The Dermal Filler Procedure

The dermal filler procedure takes from 15 minutes to an hour.

Step #1 – Assess and Map

Your facial appearance and skin tone is assessed. Target points are marked to show exactly where to place the injections. Photographs may be taken to compare your before and after results.

Step #2 – Cleanse and Anesthetize

Injection sites are disinfected, and then numbed using an ointment, cold air device, or local anesthetic. Dermal filler injections aren’t completely painless, but any discomfort is easily tolerated.

Step #3 – Dermal Filler Injection

The injections take a few moments per target site. The area is gently massaged and additional filler is added if required.

Step #4 – Clean Up and Recovery 

Any markings are cleaned off and an ice pack is used to reduce any swelling or discomfort. You may feel slightly tender for a couple of days, but not enough to require pain medication 

Which Dermal Filler Do I Need?

 

Filler injections are ideal for people who desire non-surgical aesthetic treatments. These minimally invasive treatments don’t require any surgery, leave no telltale scars, and don’t involve downtime. They give you gorgeous, natural-looking results without any fuss.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Hyaluronic acid fillers typically last from 6 to 18 months. This substance is naturally produced by the body and therefore reabsorbed over time. The deeper and denser the injections, the longer the dermal filler will last. Lip fillers tend to last the least amount of time, those to the nasolabial folds last longer, and ones deep in the cheeks last the longest.

What Are the Risks of Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Complications from dermal fillers are extremely rare and usually resolve rapidly. Potential risks include:

  • Asymmetry or lumpiness.
  • Bleeding or bruising.
  • Infection at the injection site.
  • Itching, redness, or swelling.
  • Accidental injection into a blood vessel.

Dermal Fillers – Before and After

Before and after treatment, avoid activities that increase blood flow to the face, such as exercise, facial massage, and sunbathing.

In the days before your appointment, drink lots of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol. A Vitamin C boost is recommended.

After treatment, be careful not to massage the treated area. Don’t worry about unevenness or swelling. This is normal and will resolve within 10 days.
