What are dermal Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are often utilized to replenish lost volume in the face due to age, weight change, injury, or illness. This process works by injecting a liquid beneath the skin to fill in areas lacking volume or shape. Injectable fillers are an excellent, minimally invasive option for Franklin Park, IL women and men wanting to even out fine lines, sagging skin, or wrinkles. They can also be added to other aesthetic procedures to provide the benefits of a traditional facelift without the risk of scarring and pain associated with surgery. To find out which dermal filler products are recommended for you, we invite you to visit medical director and master injector Dr. Myriam Yokana at Modern Day MedSpa.

How Are Dermal Fillers Injected?

Prior to your dermal filler injections, Dr. Yokana will consult with you to learn your concerns and expectations, and she will help you determine which products or treatment options will help you achieve your goals. During the procedure, Dr. Yokana will administer anesthetic cream to make the injections as comfortable as possible. The filler will be slowly and expertly injected to precisely targeted regions through a very fine needle. You should expect a small amount of bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms will dissipate quickly. Results are long-lasting and can remain for a few months up to a full year, depending on the product used, size of the injection site, and location of the injection. Touch-ups may be periodically needed to optimize results.

Dermal Fillers FAQ

How much do injectable dermal filler treatments cost?
Your cost for a wrinkle filler treatment will vary based on the type used and how much is needed to achieve desired results. During your initial consult, your injector will develop a customized treatment plan that matches your needs and wants. We will also provide you with a cost estimate and discuss any current specials.

How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The type of injectable filler used on you will be based on which area(s) is being treated and your wanted result. Depending on whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or are wanting to create fuller lips, your injector will ask about your goals before recommending the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. Now that there are so many different brands of fillers, it can be overwhelming to select which one is the best for you, which is why our team of aesthetic professionals helps to make sure you get results that make you happy.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX®, address fine lines and wrinkles (especially in the forehead and around the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Fillers add volume to the face in order to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and depressions. Injectable fillers can also be used to add more volume to your cheeks and lips as well as to rejuvenate the hands.

How long will the results last?
How long your results last will depend on the type of filler used and what area was treated. In some patients, improvements may last for a year, while some patients may want a repeat treatment after a few months. Touch-up treatments are available at our practice in order to maintain your improvements.

What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers can address signs of aging in your face by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Dermal fillers can be injected into parentheses, marionette, as well as corner lines around your mouth and nose. They can also temporarily restore volume to your cheeks and lips.
