Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you could do something about those pesky lines and wrinkles? Do you desire a more youthful appearance without having an invasive procedure? A dermal filler may be your answer.
Fillers are not meant to create a completely different look. In the hands of an experienced Dermatologist, a dermal filler can enhance your own features with beautiful results. The first step is to think about what areas you would like treated and consider your goals.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal Fillers can plump it up and fill in the creases. Treat your lips, corners of your mouth, and laugh lines to these light and safe fillers to instantly achieve voluminous and contoured looks. Even post-acne or post-traumatic face scars can be filled out using this less invasive, instantly gratifying procedure. These US FDA-approved fillers, made from hyaluronic acid, will only have you coming back for more by leaving your skin with a smooth and natural appearance.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Fillers can be used on the face to soften wrinkles and creases, restore fuller lips and even smooth out the skin on your hands.
With instant results, dermal fillers offer a general rejuvenation to create lift, plump and smooth skin. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore volume. Dermal fillers are made up of ingredients that are either naturally found in your body such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, or a biocompatible substance such as poly-L-lactic acid or polymethylmethacrylate.
What determines what dermal filler is best?
The choice of which filler is best depends on your treatment goals and varies from person to person. The location of where the filler is to be injected, how long you want it to last, determine which type is best for the patient.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Most dermal fillers can last anywhere from one to two years based upon which filler is selected.
Are there risks or side effects?
Overall, dermal fillers are relatively safe and effective. The most common reactions may include redness, swelling, bruising, itching or tenderness. For most, these mild reactions resolve within a week or so.
Who should not get a filler?
- If you are allergic to any of the components in the filler
- If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
- If you take blood thinners or an immunosuppressant
- Exercise caution if you have a history of severe scarring or have a pigmentation disorder
Can dermal fillers be used to correct acne scars?
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to correct acne scars, however, based upon the scars themselves, they may not be fully cured.
Are dermal fillers better than Botox?
Not necessarily. Dermal fillers and Botox address similar but also different areas of concern. In some instances, a combination can work together to achieve the desired results. Because both are useful, a consultation is necessary to determine what is best for you.
Are dermal filler injections painful?
now a days most of the Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid are mixed with lidocaine to help ease the discomfort. Few other dermal fillers which do not contain any anesthetic can be mildly painful. However, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area before injections to help ease the pain.
What can a patient expect during treatment?
Before the procedure you will meet with your Dermatologist to discuss areas of concern and goals of treatment. The filler will be selected based upon the initial consultation.
What happens during a Dermal filler procedure?
Small aliquots of filler are applied in several locations. The area may be massaged to help contour the filler to fit the specific location. If you experience tenderness with the injections, an ice pack may be used to help ease the pain and swelling.
What happens after the Dermal filler procedure?
You will be instructed to take it easy for 24 hours, forgo strenuous exercise, and refrain from excessive sun exposure to help decrease redness and irritation following the procedure. You will be instructed to refrain from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for one week to help reduce the risk of bruising and refrain from using RetinA on your face for several days to lessen prolonged redness.
Are dermal fillers expensive?
The cost depends on which filler is chosen and the total amount of filler used. To help you estimate the cost, discuss your specific goals and options with your Dermatologist.

Came to Doc Juvita with hair fall problems a couple of months ago. Over time with her treatments my hair has improved in terms of its texture, growth and appearance.

Dr. Juvita is the best dermatologist in bangalore.. I have visited Dr. Juvita Aesthetics for laser hair removal for full body 6 months ago. I am happy with the service. Clinic is clean and very professional. Thank you Dr. Juvita and team.. Ms. Deepika and Ms. Anuja also made me feel comfortable during the procedures.
I visited Dr Juvita for a skin and hair related issue that I was facing for a few years. With one consultation and one dosage of medicines, I have seen credible results. Dr Juvita is especially wonderful and she also calls you back in a few days to see how you’re recovering. Would 10/10 recommend this to friends and family. Very satisfied visit.
I went in for a consultation for my hair thinning and very visible scalp. Dr. Juvita was able to assess it as stage 4 female pattern and suggested treatment options. Knowing that at that stage, hair regrowth is minimal - she explained everything clearly and also what is achievable vs what isn't. I've done 7 sessions of treatment so far and we're seeing thicker hair, lesser hairfall. She and her staff are really professional and everything is done quick and painless.
