Injectable dermal fillers are a safe, effective and non-surgical technique to create fuller lips, smooth out facial wrinkles and scars, and improve the appearance of deep frown lines or furrowed brows.During treatment, a very fine needle is used to inject the filler beneath the skin surface to plump or fill-in the depressed areas. The effects of dermal filler therapy are evident immediately, with little redness or swelling. Most patients report only minor discomfort at the time of treatment. A topical anesthetic may be applied prior to the procedure to decrease any discomfort.Injections generally take about 30-45 minutes per session. Slight swelling may be evident after treatment, as may minor bruising . The bruising may be covered with makeup and should resolve in a few days. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure. Just like natural collagen, dermal fillers break down over time. Depending on the filler injected, the effect may last from 8 months to 3 years.
