What Are the Advantages of Dermal Fillers?

If you are ready for a more youthful look, Dr. Gerald Peters at the Peters Dermatology Center in Bend, OR, offers fillers to reduce facial wrinkles by adding volume to your skin.

What Are the Advantages of the Dermal Filler Procedure?

A dermal filler procedure to address common signs of aging effectively reduces wrinkles and lines, helping you restore a youthful appearance. 

If you are experiencing deeper facial wrinkles, this procedure is an excellent option. 

What Happens Before a Dermal Filler Procedure?

Before the procedure, you will need to talk to Dr. Peters about the type of filler you are interested in. This will help you avoid complications.

You will also need to be prepared for the procedure and discuss the risks and side effects with our team.

What Happens During a Dermal Filler Procedure?

First, an anesthetic ointment may be injected before the procedure to maximize your comfort. 

During the dermal filler procedure, Dr. Peters injects a substance below the skin to plump fine lines and wrinkles. This method also helps to minimize scars and depression.

What Happens After a Dermal Filler Procedure?

The recovery time following the procedure is minimal. 

It would help if you also prepared yourself by avoiding certain activities for several days after the treatment. This includes not wearing hats and glasses and sleeping flat on your face. It would be best if you also avoid direct sun exposure.

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. The amount of swelling you experience after the injection varies from patient to patient. However, the swelling generally takes one to two days to subside.

The Recovery Time After a Dermal Filler Procedure

During the recovery time, you may experience mild swelling or redness at the injection sites. This will generally subside after a few days. 

You should avoid rubbing the treated area for the first few days after the procedure. This is so that you avoid accidentally causing the filler to migrate or move within your skin.

The most common side effect is mild bruising. Depending on age and skin type, side effects can last from a few hours to a few weeks.
