Dermal fillers are an extremely versatile tool in Dr. Fisher’s toolbox to address fine lines and wrinkles, add subtle volume to cheeks or lips, or refine the shape of the nose. Our dermal fillers are an impressively versatile line of products that enable us to create a number of incredible facial results.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Our patients love dermal fillers for their ability to produce impressive results in a surprisingly short amount of time. Most dermal filler procedures take between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the specifics of your treatment area. This is referred to as a “lunch break” procedure, thanks to its ability to be completed in under an hour.
Once you and Dr. Fisher have settled on your specific procedural outline, the dermal fillers will be carefully injected into the treatment area. This will be done using a very fine-gauged needle or cannula (blunt needle). Most patients find this part of the procedure to be quite comfortable, and we can help you manage any discomfort with a topical anesthetic.
You might experience some redness, a bit of mild swelling, and some tenderness in the treatment area. This will be the extent of your recovery, however, and you’ll be clear to resume your normal daily routine just about as soon as you’re finished. Most patients enjoy their results for up to 24 months before a follow-up treatment is recommended.
