Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Injecting dermal fillers into various points on your face can transform your facial shape, enhance your contours, and help you look more youthful. Sunken cheeks, thin lips, and wrinkles are all features associated with aging. With dermal fillers, you can restore your facial plumpness and improve your facial symmetry.

At Medical Laser Therapeutics, the team uses two high-quality dermal filler name brands to enhance your appearance:

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a dermal filler with calcium hydroxylapatite spheres suspended in biocompatible gel. The spheres act as a scaffold and promote collagen growth within your skin. Even after the gel dissolves, your own collagen holds the volume for up to two years.

Belotero®

Belotero is a popular dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid base. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within your skin and tissues to help them hold moisture and stay lubricated. Your body absorbs the filler smoothly after 6-18 months, depending on the treatment area. 

Which changes can I make with dermal fillers?

During your consultation at Medical Laser Therapeutics, the team asks you about your treatment goals to make sure that dermal fillers are the best solution. Thankfully, there are many alterations that you can make with dermal fillers. Your provider might direct you to either Radiesse or Belotero if you want:

  • Plumper lips
  • Fewer lip wrinkles
  • Softer smile lines
  • Less visible scars
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Shallow areas of your face

Your provider might recommend additional treatments, like Botox® or laser resurfacing, to further enhance or highlight your results. A personalized cosmetic treatment plan can provide a major boost in confidence for you.  

How should I prepare for dermal fillers?

Although dermal fillers are minimally invasive, there are some steps you can take to reduce potential side effects and make the treatment more comfortable. The team at Medical Laser Therapeutics might suggest:

  • Avoiding smoking 
  • Stopping blood thinner medications
  • Providing a list of any medications you take currently
  • Reporting any recent skin treatments
  • Rescheduling your appointment if you develop a rash or skin irritation

The team at Medical Laser Therapeutics can answer each of your questions in detail before your appointment so you know exactly what to expect when you arrive. After your peel, you can continue your routine as usual. You don’t need to take any time off to recover from your treatment.
