If you’re looking to bring some youth back to your skin or give yourself the facial volume you’ve been lacking, dermal fillers may be the answer you seek.
From cheek filler and lip filler to face fillers, numerous products exist to treat several areas at once to give you the most natural-looking fullness and facial contours.
When you’re ready to schedule your dermal filler consultation, contact the team at WIFH in Atlanta, GA.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers have quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around. These injectables tackle a variety of common concerns to deliver fuller, more rejuvenated skin and facial features.
Fillers can be administered in several areas around the face, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
Whether you want to give your cheeks or lips more fullness or reduce the signs of aging, dermal fillers can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Do Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers help target areas that need more volume and fill in skin lines and creases. Several filler products are available to treat different areas of the face, and most of them are made from hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the human body. It has many jobs, including acting as a lubricant in the eyes, joints, and other tissues. Cosmetically, hyaluronic acid helps keep skin looking hydrated and supple.
When injected, the gel-like product plumps the skin from within. For example, when used as a cheek filler, it can bring more fullness to the area.
Advantages of Dermal Fillers
There’s a reason that dermal fillers have earned such popularity and continue to be one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments. Some of the most notable benefits of injectable fillers include:
- Minimally invasive
- Long-lasting, natural results
- Reduced visible signs of aging
- Quick, straightforward treatment
- Better facial volume and contours
- Rejuvenated, glowing complexion

What to Expect During Your Filler Appointment
Prior to your filler appointment, there are certain instructions we provide to get you ready for your treatment. You should avoid certain medications, like aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as vitamins and supplements like vitamin E and fish oil for a few days. You should also limit alcohol for several days before the procedure.
On the day of your appointment, we’ll start by applying a numbing cream to all target areas to help ensure maximum comfort during treatment. We’ll allow 15 to 20 minutes for the cream to numb the area thoroughly before we begin.
During your treatment, we’ll carefully inject small doses of filler throughout the treatment area to give you the best possible results. Once we’re done, we will give you aftercare instructions to promote healing. These often include no lying down for a few hours and no exercise or strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
Treatment times are usually quick. Depending on how many areas you’re treating, you can expect your appointment to last from 30 to 60 minutes. Many patients visit us during their lunch breaks. You’ll be able to return to your regular daily routine after your appointment.
Results from Dermal Fillers
Results from dermal fillers are noticeable almost immediately after treatment. Final results usually take about a week or two as the product is settling into your skin.
One of the most common questions we receive is, “How long do dermal fillers last?” The answer is usually, “It depends.”
Each person’s body is different, which means that fillers will react differently in every patient. Over time, your body metabolizes filler. As such, the more slowly your body metabolizes the product, the longer your results will last.
Generally, results from dermal fillers last from six months to a year, but for some patients, they remain even longer.
You can continue to get dermal fillers to maintain your results. Results can be customized to your liking during each appointment.
Some patients also contact us inquiring about removing dermal fillers. While the product naturally dissolves over time, it is possible to reverse it. A product called hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve dermal fillers. Should you experience any concerns with your fillers, we can discuss removing them.
We aim to make our patients feel as content and satisfied as possible with their results. For this reason, we take our time with each patient during consultations and treatments to help ensure optimal final results.
How Do You Know Whether Fillers Are Right for You?
Dermal fillers are right for patients of every skin type, tone, and texture. Additionally, both women and men can benefit from filler treatments. Fillers allow you to look like yourself but with a more youthful, radiant glow.
We believe in the importance of consultations because they allow us ample time to get to know you, your concerns, and your desired results. During your consultation, we’ll examine the area you’d like to treat and determine which filler products will give you the best outcome.
You can feel free to bring every question and concern to your consultation, and we’ll happily address them all to give you peace of mind and excitement for your results.
