Injectables Q & A

Regina Anderson MD

What are injectable skin fillers?

Injectable skin fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath your skin to help restore lost volume and rejuvenate your mid-face area, as well as smooth out lines and treat facial creases or contours. Over one million men and women each year use this popular form of facial rejuvenation treatment. It’s often a cost-effective alternative to surgery to help you look younger.

Which injectables does Dr. Anderson offer?

  • Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine
  • Dysport®

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based gel substance used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles or folds.

Dysport, which is made of neurotoxins, is similar to Botox® and is used to treat wrinkles and crow’s feet. Dr. Anderson assesses each patient’s individual needs and puts together a comprehensive treatment plan based on which injectable skin filler will provide the best results.

What should I expect during treatment?

Prior to treatment, Dr. Anderson cleans the treatment area and may provide a topical anesthetic. She then injects the filler beneath your skin.

Although it depends on the type of filler and area being treated, you should notice results immediately after the injection procedure. Most patients are able to resume everyday activities right after treatment.

How long do results last?

The results dermal fillers produce depend on several factors, including the:

  • Type of product
  • Area of treatment
  • Patient

Continued treatment over an extended period of time is recommended, with adjustments to the quantity and techniques used to achieve optimal results for each patient.

Are there risks involved?

As with any medical procedure, there are risks and side effects, but most occur shortly after injection procedures and go away within a week or two. Possible side effects associated with soft tissue injectable skin fillers include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness

However, long-term risks and side effects associated with injectable skin fillers are rare.
