The Filler Effect: How This Trending Procedure Can Help You Turn Back the Clock on Aging

Among the signs of aging those telltale fine lines and wrinkles are among the most unwelcome. They show up later for some people than they do for others, but it’s something that every one of us will have to face sooner or later. There used to be little to nothing that you could do about it aside from keeping your skin well moisturized and staying out of the sun, but today science and modern technology offer us far more options to fight back in the battle against time. You no longer have to “grow old gracefully.” Dermal fillers allow you can age with beauty instead of accepting those crows feet and laugh lines. But fighting the hands of time is not all that injectable fillers can do for you. Today we will explore what dermal fillers are and how they can help you look and feel more beautiful.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

The name is fairly self-explanatory. Dermal fillers are just what they sound like. These anti-aging injections go deep into the dermis to plump the tissues and fill in wrinkle-causing gaps for smoother, younger-looking skin. As we age we naturally lose subcutaneous fat which is part of the structure that supports our skin and keeps it taut. Injectable fillers offer facial rejuvenation to restore a youthful appearance with natural-looking results.

Who Are Dermal Fillers For?

Dermal fillers are perfect for anyone looking for non-surgical facelift options as well as those who would like to contour their face. Hollow cheeks can benefit from the volume restoration that cheek fillers can provide, and thin lips can be plumped up with lip fillers to perfect your pout. Wrinkle fillers erase the effect of time while under-eye fillers reduce bags and fill out hollow eyes.


Juvederm is a safe and effective FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by your body to support your skin, eyes, and connective tissues. It helps keep tissues well hydrated to keep them plump. It also gives your skin a collagen boost by stimulating natural collagen production to further firm and smooth your skin. Juvederm is a great wrinkle filler and fine line filler for the areas around your nose, mouth, chin, jawline, and temples, and lip injections will plump and smooth your lips for a more youthful look. You will see immediate results with Juvederm treatments that will last for up to two years with the proper care. A maintenance appointment is usually scheduled one year following the initial treatment.

About The Procedure

You will need to have a consultation before scheduling your dermal filler injections to determine which options are best for you. Depending on the areas you are having treated you can expect your appointment to last for 15 minutes to an hour.  Dermal filler injections are usually painless. Rarely someone will experience mild pain, swelling, itching, or bruising after the procedure, but when these rare side effects do occur they are typically mild and resolve on their own within about seven days. During the procedure, your esthetician will use a very fine needle to inject the filler into your skin. It’s normal to feel a slight tingling or pulsating sensation for a few moments as well as to feel like your skin is stretching. These sensations should resolve within about 20 minutes. Nonsurgical fillers are a long-lasting but temporary antiaging solution. Depending on the filler used results can last for 1-2 years. 


Dermal fillers offer more benefits than erasing lines and wrinkles. Let’s take a look now at some of the other perks of these natural-looking fillers.

  • Smooth lines and wrinkles
  • Restore volume
  • Firm sagging skin
  • Contour the face
  • Plum and smooth the lips
  • Stimulate natural collagen production
  • Restore a youthful glow

Tips To Make Your Results Last Longer

Unfortunately, dermal fillers can’t last forever, but with the proper care, you help hold onto the youth restoring results as long as possible. Here are some things that will help you get the most long-lasting results from your dermal filler treatments:

  1. Do not massage or apply direct pressure to the injection sites for at least 24 hours after your appointment. Don’t rub your face and avoid sleeping on the treated areas of your face for 1-2 days. 
  2. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and apply a hydrating moisturizer to your skin.
  3. Maintain a good skincare routine. Your injections will last longer when you take good care of your skin. Look for hydrating products that boost collagen production for the best results.
  4. Protect your skin from the sun. UV rays can undo the effects of your dermal filler injections. So avoid sun exposure and wear a high SPF sunscreen when going outdoors. If you get a sunburn the same process that fights the inflammation and heals your skin will also break down your dermal fillers faster.
  5. Stay away from processed foods and excess sugars. These things cause inflammation that negatively affects the health of your skin and the longevity of dermal fillers. 
  6. Reduce stress. High levels of stress hormones such as cortisol accelerate the aging process. Try to reduce stress where you can and incorporate stress relief practices into your daily routine.
