Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that inject beneath the skin. It is a safe way to rejuvenate your face without surgery.

Dr. Zakariaei offers the two most popular FDA-approved dermal fillers available: Juvederm and Restylane. These two fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance already found in your skin, helping to keep it plump and hydrated.

The results from dermal fillers are immediate. Effects last between 6-12 months before your body naturally absorbs it.

What can dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers can not duplicate the full impact of a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift. However, they can provide a temporary improvement in target areas of the face.

Dermal fillers can:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

You need to continue receiving fillers every 6-12 months to maintain these results.

What should I expect during dermal filler treatment?

Before treatment, you consult with Dr. Zakariaei to determine the correct product and discuss your desired results. At that time, he reviews your medical history to make sure you won’t have any adverse reactions. You must stop taking any NSAIDs (such as Ibuprofen or aspirin) and blood thinners for a few days before treatment to avoid possible bruising.

Dermal filler treatment is quite quick. Dr. Zakariaei cleans the area and then injects a precise amount of filler just below the skin. Depending on the area, you may see results immediately after the injections. Some patients experience a small amount of swelling or bruising, but this goes away within a day or two.

There is no required recovery time, and you can return to work immediately after the treatment. You will need to refrain from heavy exertion or exercise for the rest of the day.

Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to reduce the signs of aging on your face. If you live in Encino, California, and think dermal fillers might make a difference for you, call or make an appointment online with Dr. Zakariaei at Marbella MedSpa and start looking as young as you feel.
