Dermal Filers Q & A

LACCMA Beauty

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are made of plumping solutions and gel-like materials designed to add volume in areas where you need it most. One of the most common ingredients in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance known for attracting moisture and delivering nutrients.

Many dermal fillers, including hyaluronic acid-based fillers, go a step further and stimulate collagen production. So, while you get the immediate benefit of plumper, smoother skin, you also get the lasting benefit of tighter, firmer skin from deep within.

What do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers can treat a wide variety of skin concerns and aging issues. You might want to consider getting dermal fillers to:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Contour your cheeks or jawline
  • Improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars
  • Soften creases and deep grooves

When you sit down with Dr. Iluore at LACCMA Beauty, talk with him about what you’d like to achieve. He might suggest getting Botox injections to complement your dermal fillers. Botox helps smooth out skin that’s wrinkled due to frequent muscle contractions.

Are dermal filler injections painful?

It’s normal to feel some pinching or stinging during your dermal filler treatment, but you shouldn’t be in pain. Dr. Iluore often recommends applying a topical numbing cream once you arrive at the clinic so it has time to take effect before your injection treatment. You can also ice the area ahead of time.

How long do dermal fillers last?

One of the reasons dermal fillers are one of the top-requested aesthetic services at LACCMA Beauty is because they’re so long-lasting. While each line of dermal filler has a different expectancy, on average, your dermal filler treatment can last up to 1-2 years.

Once your dermal filler treatment starts wearing down — or if you have a new issue you want to treat — you can certainly schedule another appointment at LACCMA. It’s entirely safe to have your dermal filler injection treatment repeated as needed.
