What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to add volume and increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Most fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the body. Dermal fillers work both by adding volume and structural support to the skin at the injection site and by stimulating the production of collagen, a compound that helps the skin stay healthy and resilient.
Different filler formulas are made for different cosmetic purposes. Some are formulated for adding substantial volume and are used to fill hollowed cheeks or improve the shape of the chin or nose. Others are formulated for finer changes, such as smoothing the fine lines that can appear above the lips or around the eyes. Special formulations are used to plump the lips. Each dermal filler formulation is designed to create results that look and feel natural in its particular use.
The facial enhancements made with dermal filler treatments are temporary, lasting from a few months to two years, depending on the filler used, your metabolism, and other factors.
Why Might I Consider Treatment with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a fast, easy, and effective way to temporarily reverse early signs of facial aging and make other cosmetic improvements. Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Smooth facial lines and wrinkles, from the fine lines that can form above the lips to deeper creases that can form on the forehead and around the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold and marionette lines)
- Round sunken cheeks
- Fill the hollowed area under the eyes
- Plump and smooth the lips
- Modify the shape of the nose or chin
- Improve facial symmetry
Dermal fillers are most effective in treating the early signs of facial aging. For significant sagging and wrinkling, surgical treatment, such as a facelift or brow lift, will be more effective and give longer-lasting results.

What Happens During a Dermal Filler Treatment Session?
Dermal filler injections are performed in our office. We may use a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during treatment. A very fine needle is used to inject the filler precisely where extra volume is wanted or needed, using formulations and amounts selected to produce the most natural-looking results.
Dermal filler procedures usually take about 15-45 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. When the treatment is complete, you are free to resume your normal daily activities.

Dr. Loizides will instruct you to avoid strenuous activity, extensive sun exposure, and the use of aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for the first 24 hours.
