What Can Dermal Fillers Do for Me?

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

Now that the world is starting to open up again, you’ll likely be seeing more and more people. If you look in the mirror and are frustrated with fine lines and wrinkles that have developed during quarantine and beyond, you may want to consider how cosmetic surgery in Illinois can help improve your confidence.

Our Restylane doctor in Itasca can help through the use of dermal fillers. If you’ve never heard of dermal fillers, they are FDA-approved injectable substances that are designed to add volume and combat signs of aging.

Where Can I Get Dermal Fillers?

We recommend dermal fillers for a variety of areas, including:

  • Lip enhancement
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead lines
  • Nose
  • Chin
  • Marionnette lines or laugh lines

We use different filler products depending on the area being treated and the specific goals you want to achieve. Examples include Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Juvederm, and more. Each product also lasts a different amount of time, and our Board-Certified doctor will discuss specific details with you during your procedure. We’ll always ensure your results are natural, subtle, and seamlessly executed.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Unlike other plastic surgery procedures, dermal fillers are not a surgical procedure. However, to prepare, we recommend avoiding aspirin, vitamin E, and ibuprofen at least 3-5 days before your appointment.

The procedure doesn’t take long; once our team understands your frustrations and goals, we will use our artistic touch to inject the filler. The needle is small and most patients can easily tolerate the pain. We are happy to provide you with numbing cream if it will help ease your anxiety.

Stay upright for 3-4 hours following the procedure. You can take arnica supplements or use a topical form to help reduce any bruising or swelling, but know that bruising and swelling are normal and should subside in a week.
