Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

When it comes to cosmetic injections, dermal fillers are among the most popular and versatile categories. Nagi Ibrahim M.D. primarily offers hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for anti-aging and other cosmetic purposes. 

Hyaluronic acid is nothing to fear: It’s a naturally occurring component in your body. Among several other purposes, it keeps your skin moisturized and lubricates your joints to help them move smoothly. 

In the form of fillers, hyaluronic acid makes for natural-looking results. Under your skin, they feel very similar to natural subdermal fat. Your provider at Nagi Ibrahim M.D. offers numbing creams or local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. They use very fine needles to prevent extra discomfort. 

Which areas can I target with dermal fillers?

Your provider at Nagi Ibrahim M.D. plans the placements for your injections very carefully so they don’t add volume where it doesn’t fit or doesn’t look right. Using high-quality hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, you can target your:

  • Lips
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Earlobes
  • Backs of your hands
  • Recessed scars
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Other large wrinkles

If your primary concern is smaller wrinkles or fine lines, botulinum toxin injections like Botox® or Xeomin® might be the better option for you. You can get either or both treatments at Nagi Ibrahim M.D., and your provider helps you select and plan treatments that work well for your goals. 

Do dermal fillers last for a long time?

Dermal fillers can last for months or even years. Generally, you can plan for your hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to last for 6-12 months. Then, your tissues absorb them naturally, and you go back to your original natural appearance. 

If you choose, you can book regular dermal filler treatments at Nagi Ibrahim M.D. to continuously enjoy the targeted boost in volume. You can do the same with botulinum toxin wrinkle reduction treatments and ultrasound treatments for eyebags and droopy lids. 

How should I prepare for dermal fillers?

You can prevent or reduce reactions like bruising and excessive bleeding by taking the right steps to prepare for a session of dermal filler injections at Nagi Ibrahim M.D. One of the most important steps you can take is to stop taking blood-thinning medications, like aspirin and ibuprofen, two weeks in advance of your treatment. 

Dermal fillers can boost volume in your face or hands to enhance your overall appearance or improve its symmetry. For answers to all of your questions about hyaluronic acid fillers, call Nagi Ibrahim M.D., or schedule a consultation online today.
