What are Injectable dermal Fillers?
Filler injections (usually called dermal fillers) are often injected to replace diminished facial volume. Faces often lose volume for a variety of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. The process works by incorporating the liquefied dermal filler under the skin to fill in areas lacking volume or shape. Injectable fillers are an excellent, minimally invasive option for Denver, CO men and women wanting to even out wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin in order to create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be added to other cosmetic treatments to achieve the results of a facelift without going under the knife. There are a variety of fillers that could help meet the goals and desires of each patient. To decide which injectable fillers are recommended for you, we encourage you to visit Cherry Creek Face and Skin where our team can help you learn more.

"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

How do dermal fillers work?
The best candidates for injectable fillers are those looking to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift. Usually, individuals who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have spots on their faces that are hollow and shapeless. This makes them great contenders for injectable fillers. Before your injection, our team will meet with you to gain insight into your aesthetic goals and determine which product may best achieve them. At the time of the actual procedure, we will use topical numbing cream as a local anesthetic to make the injections as pain-free as possible. Our team will decide how much is appropriate and will slowly and meticulously inject it via a very fine needle. Depending on the desired outcome, either half or an entire syringe could be used. This procedure can be completed in our Denver, CO office quickly and with very few risks. Due to the numbing agents, the process is typically very tolerable pain-wise and requires little to no downtime afterward. You should expect swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms will dissipate within a couple of days. Results can last from a few months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the area of injection.
