Introduction to Dermal Fillers

The goal is to age gracefully, but, sometimes, that grace brings on the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Over time, we naturally lose suppleness to our skin as a result of the loss of collagen and elastin. But age isn’t the only reason your skin loses its luster – other factors affecting your facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Whether you’re looking to regain your youth or pre-emptively fighting the effects of time, when you opt for a Miami Dermal Filler treatment, you can give yourself a much-needed boost with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. Dr. Michael Keyes and our team at Celebrity Plastics are excited to work with you to provide the kind of treatment he is well-known for.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. Made from FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid (HA), these fillers can be used to help create a smoother and fuller facial appearance, including areas like nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and even the back of the hands. More than 1 million men and women annually choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

With a number of dermal filler products to choose from, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern.

Dr. Keyes will help you determine which dermal filler is right for you.

Juvederm®

Juvederm® is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips, and loosening skin. This anti-aging treatment can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Results generally last for two years and can be made to last even longer with follow-up and supplemental treatments.

Juvéderm family of products:

  • Juvéderm Vollure XC: the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
  • Juvéderm Volux XC: best for improvement of jawline definition
  • Juvéderm Volbella XC: for lip augmentation, correcting peri-oral rhytids (smoker’s lines), and for the improvement of infraorbital hollowing
  • Juvéderm Voluma XC: good for cheek augmentation and chin augmentation
  • Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC: best for the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds)
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC: good for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, as well as lip augmentation

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is the first and only FDA-approved calcium hydroxylapatite injectable treatment available in the US. As a dermal filler with a viscose consistency that imitates the firmness of connective tissue, Radiesse brings youth back to your features. Recommended for the lower face and back of hands, this firming injectable can last for up to 18 months or even longer in some cases. With immediate results and little downtime required, this treatment helps to stimulate your natural production of elastin and collagen.

Radiesse family of products:

  • Radiesse
  • Radiesse (+): has an addition of lidocaine in the product to numb the treatment areas and minimize patient discomfort

Restylane®

Restylane® is injected deep into the tissue via a fine needle which also contains lidocaine to help you manage any discomfort. This is so that it successfully adds volume to the area to support and smooth the overlying skin. A small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is included in the filler to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The volumizing effects of Restylane last between 6 to 12 months depending on the location of the injection.

Restylane family of products:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane Silk: best for subtle lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth
  • Restylane Lyft: approved for cheek augmentation, correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies, and treating moderate to severe facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Restylane Refyne: helps smoothen out mild lines and wrinkles that run alongside the corners of your mouth
  • Restylane Defyne: smooths out moderate to severe lines around your mouth

Sculptra®

Sculptra® is designed to perform subtly and gradually over time, to revitalize your skin and give you a smooth, youthful appearance. In contrast to other fillers, Sculptra works to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. Utilizing poly-L-lactic acid, we work to address the underlying issues of aging skin. Sculptra treatments rebuild lost collagen and give you a more youthful appearance that can last up to two years. Our treatments are fast, safe, and designed to work with most budgets, meaning that you can enjoy the benefits of renewed collagen and revitalized skin for years to come. By increasing collagen production, we can help restore your skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has diminished from aging.

Who are the best candidates for Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for Dermal Fillers in Miami should be looking to correct issues with volume loss (including lines and wrinkles) or want to enhance areas of volume loss (such as lips and tear troughs)have the following characteristics:

  • Have moderate to severe folds or wrinkles
  • Do not want to undergo surgery
  • Must be in good mental and physical health
  • Committed to practicing good skin health routines
  • Keeps a positive and realistic attitude regarding the outcome of the treatment
  • Nonsmokers

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting Dermal Fillers in Miami is to meet with our Patient Care Coordinator who will listen to your aesthetic goals and determine if this treatment is right for you, after which, they will help you schedule a consultation session with Dr. Keyes.

During this session, Dr. Keyes or one of our injection specialists will explain what a dermal filler is. Your targeted area will be assessed and your desired outcome will be discussed to determine the best treatment option for you. Your consultation session is also your opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you have.

Upon completion of the assessment, your provider can perform the treatment immediately after your Dermal Filler consultation. If you would like to reschedule for another date, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you find the right day and time for you.

What to expect on the day of a Dermal Filler treatment

When you are ready for your procedure, a numbing medication will be applied to the treatment area to help reduce or eliminate any discomfort from the treatment. Some patients can expect mild discomfort if they are anxious about needles. Your provider will make some strategic marks to help plot your injection points for the filler.

Next, the injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. The injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler is added as needed.

Once the two of you are satisfied, any markings will be cleaned off. You may be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort. We will monitor you for 10 – 20 minutes so we can ensure you don’t have any negative reactions to the filler.

Procedure timeline

Contact

The first step to getting Dermal Fillers is to contact Celebrity Plastics and schedule a consultation. Before you consult with Dr. Keyes, you will need to meet our Patient Care Coordinator to discuss your aesthetic goals and eligibility. You can also schedule other noninvasive treatments such as BOTOX & Wrinkle Relaxers at this time.

Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Keyes or your provider will discuss your goals and the areas on your face you are looking to treat. From there, we will advise on the best course of treatment, potential risks associated with dermal fillers, and how much the procedure will cost so that you can make an informed decision.

Consultation / Treatment

When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Keyes or one of our advanced practice practitioners. You will discuss your aesthetic goals and your health will be evaluated. After discussing which Dermal Filler is best for you, your treatment plan will be created and you can receive your treatment that same day.

Immediately after treatment

Some redness and swelling may occur at the injection site, but this typically subsides within 24 hours. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. You will need to sleep with your head elevated to minimize swelling and reduce facial puffiness.

Within 7-14 days

Bruising can last up to four days post-treatment but should resolve itself after that. By the end of two weeks post-injection, your fillers should settle and you should have beautiful, natural-looking results.

6-9 MONTHS

The effects of Dermal Fillers will last from several months to several years depending on the filler used and the area injected. During this time, your body will begin to naturally absorb the filler, causing slow volume loss. If you would like to maintain your appearance, we recommend scheduling touch-up appointments every six to nine months so the filler doesn’t wear off completely.

Dermal Fillers recovery

The Dermal Filler treatment is very quick and mostly pain-free. There is no downtime needed after you receive the treatment, which means you can resume normal activities right after your appointment. It is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48.

Patients can expect to be swollen the first 24-72 hours after your treatment, which is completely normal. You will need to resist the urge to massage any areas as this will only worsen the swelling and potentially displace the filler. Lightly using an ice pack or cold compress is appropriate for the first 24 hours but will not be helpful after that. Final results can be expected after two weeks once the swelling has completely subsided.

Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your provider before scheduling your injections.
