How Do Fillers Work?

What your dermatologist in Wilmington wants you to knowfillers

You’ve probably heard a lot about dermal fillers, but you’re not sure how they work. You’ve noticed some early signs of age sneaking up on your face, and you want to do something about it. Dermal fillers are the answer you’ve been looking for. Dr. Michael Saruk at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group, LLC in Wilmington, DE, wants to share the facts about dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers typically come in an injectable gel form and are designed to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. As you age, you begin to lose volume in your face, causing your face to sag and look older. Fine lines and wrinkles form, which can deepen as you age. Dermal fillers change all that by restoring the volume and “plumping” your skin. After a dermal filler treatment, your skin will look smoother, younger, and more vibrant.

These are just a few of the early signs of aging which dermal fillers can help:

  • Fine lines around the corners of your eyes, commonly known as crow’s feet
  • Fine lines between your eyebrows, commonly known as glabella
  • Fine lines around your mouth and nose from laughing and smiling
  • Fine lines in your forehead, commonly known as furrows

Dr. Saruk uses fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, and wrinkle relaxers like Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport to give you a naturally younger look. A small amount of the filler material is injected into a target area; your amount of injections will vary based on areas you want to be treated. The procedure is tolerated very well, and Dr. Saruk can also apply a numbing cream or spray before treatment if you wish.
