What to Expect After Dermal Fillers

Do you want to replace lost volume in your cheeks? Maybe you have lines and wrinkles that bother you or thin lips you wish could look plumper. Dermal fillers can address these concerns and give you a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers come in several types, so your provider can choose one that will work for you. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers add volume to the facial features. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we offer most types of dermal fillers to help you achieve your desired look. Dermal fillers contain bio-safe materials that rarely cause any reaction from the body. Your aesthetic specialist will inject your dermal filler into the areas that need added volume. This treatment improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles and adds volume for more youthful fullness.

What to Expect After Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers require no downtime, and you can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment. You should avoid strenuous exercise for a day or two after treatment while the filler settles. Some people notice swelling or bruising for a few days after their injections, but this is usually minor. You can expect results to appear immediately with some types of dermal fillers, while others can take several weeks or more

Which Dermal Fillers are Available?

When considering a dermal filler, your provider will consider what results you want, the area of your face, and how fast you want to see results. The best dermal filler for you depends on which formula best targets your problem areas. 


This family of fillers uses hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that attracts water and holds it in the skin. It includes fillers for lines and wrinkles, deeper creases, lip plumping, and volume restoration. 


Also using hyaluronic acid, Restylane® fillers remain stable in their location for months to over a year before breaking down. This family also includes fillers for the lips, cheeks, and wrinkles. 


Unlike other fillers that use synthetic materials, AlloFill® uses purified and sterilized fat cells. These provide immediate volume while stimulating collagen and elastin production for longer-lasting results. 


This dermal filler works especially well for lines in the lower part of the face. It uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen production. This leads to results that develop slowly but outlast most other types of fillers. 


This filler uses calcium hydroxylapatite to add immediate volume and trigger collagen production. This provides both rapid and long-lasting results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Most people make good candidates for dermal fillers. Most dermal filler materials are synthetic versions of those naturally occurring in your body. Let your provider know if you have ever had a reaction to a similar product before.
