What are Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid fillers (commonly just referred to as “ dermal fillers”) are derived from a naturally occurring component of the skin — hyaluronic acid — which is responsible for making the skin look smooth, plump, and youthful. Hyaluronic acid levels decline with age, which is why we develop fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and hollows as we become older. Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water within the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth the skin’s surface. Dr. Bloom has extensive experience with every type of hyaluronic acid product, and understands exactly how use these cosmetic injections to improve a wide array of imperfections.

What can facial fillers do?

  • Correct nasolabial folds (parentheses lines on the sides of the mouth)
  • Fill under-eye hollows (tear troughs)
  • Enhance lip volume and contour
  • Fill in facial lines and wrinkles
  • Restore facial volume to the mid-face and temples
  • Add definition to the chin and jawline
  • Fill fine lines around the lips (“smoker’s lines”)
  • Lift the eyebrows
  • Add volume to the back of aging hands
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Plump up droopy earlobes
  • Improve certain imperfections of the nose

Dr. Bloom’s approach to dermal fillers

Dr. Bloom is widely recognized as an expert injector. He is an instructor, educator, trainer, and speaker for almost all of the major brands of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid facial fillers. He travels around the country and beyond to train other doctors and practitioners, sharing his unique injection techniques for lip filler, volumization, liquid rhinoplasty, smoothing, and everything in between. Treatment with facial fillers should be a very customized procedure.

As mentioned above, fillers are never one-size-fits-all; rather, the patient’s unique face and cosmetic concerns need to be carefully considered in order to decide on just the right product(s) for their needs. This requires a comprehensive knowledge of each product and how they work together. It is this individualized approach that distinguishes Dr. Bloom’s approach. For example, some hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are “strong” and particularly well-suited for lifting or volumizing mid-facial tissue, giving precision, definition, volume, and support.

(Juvéderm Voluma is a good example of this.) However, other hyaluronic acid fillers are “thin” and integrate well into the fine lines and wrinkles around the face. Understanding the nuanced characteristics of each facial filler enables Dr. Bloom to deliver enhanced facial rejuvenation and achieve each patient’s individualized goals.

What are cosmetic injections like?

Before your cosmetic injections begin, your face will be cleansed and prepped. If you prefer, a topical anesthetic may be applied to help keep you comfortable, and most hyaluronic acid fillers are formulated with lidocaine to minimize pain before and after treatment. Your injections will be administered carefully, gently, and skillfully by our expert nurse injector. Treatment time takes approximately 15 minutes.

Dermal Fillers FAQs:

What is the best age to get dermal filler treatments?

Dermal fillers are versatile products that have benefits for patients in their 20s all the way into their 60s, depending on what is being treated. For example, thousands of individuals in their 20s get lip filler to achieve a fuller, more sensuous appearance. Fillers are also popular with younger patients who want to improve areas of their nose. When you begin getting facial fillers in your 20s, you end up needing less treatment when you’re older. On the other hand, facial fillers can also be very beneficial for older patients for issues such as “smoker’s lines” around the lips and nasolabial folds.

How long do dermal fillers last?

The duration of the results varies depending on the type of filler used, the treatment area, and individual factors. On average, results can last from 6 months to 2 years.

Is there downtime after dermal filler injections?

There is typically little to no downtime, but you may experience swelling and bruising for a few days, so it's advisable to plan accordingly.
