3 Areas on the Face to Volumize with Dermal Fillers
As you age, your production of collagen and elastin starts to slow, which can give you a sallow appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles can also develop as you suffer volume loss. Dermal fillers can restore volume to your face by plumping your cheeks, filling in forehead wrinkles, and eliminating marionette lines along with nasolabial folds.

All about dermal fillers
Medical grade fillers consist of hyaluronic acid or collagen, which occurs naturally in the skin. The injections of dermal fillers help to naturally restore your lost collagen, so you enjoy fuller, plumper skin. The dermal fillers fill in wrinkles and smooth away fine lines.
Traditional facelift surgery is an invasive surgical procedure that takes time to recover from and is costly. Dermal fillers are affordable and take Dr. Singh only minutes to administer. The fillers will quickly give you a younger-looking appearance and you’ll experience no downtime. The fillers usually last for up to one year.
Unlike a facelift surgery, which is permanent, if you are not happy with your appearance after the dermal filler injections, then you can have the dermal filler injections reversed by dissolving the formulas or removing the solution from the skin.
Are injectable fillers right for me?
Injectable fillers are ideal for individuals who have recently lost weight and volume. Their skin might appear sagging and shapeless because the layer of fat has been depleted. Injectable fillers can quickly restore the volume loss. You can quickly volumize the areas with dermal filler injections. Smooth out your foreheads and cheeks, and remove marionette lines that are making you feel older than your years.
If you have undergone a facelift and sustained scarring, then dermal fillers can easily smooth out the scars to make them less noticeable.
Dr. Singh and his aesthetics team will create a personalized treatment plan to restore the lost volume in your face and meet your particular needs. If you opt to undergo dermal injections, then they are typically administered at the time of your consultation. The dermal filler injections are placed in pre-selected areas of the face to achieve virtually instant results. Patients report that they feel a slight prick during the injections, but the aesthetic team will apply a topical anesthetic cream to help reduce any discomfort.
What to expect after dermal filler injections
Following the dermal filler injections, you can return to your day-to-day activities with no downtime. You might experience some swelling at the injection sites or bruising, but they will quickly resolve in a couple of days.
Results from dermal filler injections last from three months to a year depending on the product used and the injection sites. You can maintain your volume results with touchups.
