Q&A: Your Guide to Injectable Fillers

Did you know that many unwanted signs of aging (i.e. wrinkles) can be attributed to volume loss in the face? As we age, we naturally lose fat under the skin and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Injectable fillers replace lost volume under the skin for a smoother, softer, more youthful appearance. If you’ve been considering injectable fillers, here’s what you need to know. Woman smiling with her hand on her neck

What are dermal fillers used for?

Injectable fillers are appropriate and effective for several aesthetic goals, including softening facial creases and wrinkles, enhancing facial contours, smoothing acne scars, plumping lips for a fuller appearance, and decreasing bags under the eyes. These effects are temporary and must be repeated to achieve long-term results. The treatment is done in the office and typically takes less than 30 minutes.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are two of the most popular choices for filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, with a greater concentration in skin cells. Synthetic wrinkle fillers are used for the same purpose and tend to last longer than those that contain substances already found in the skin. Autologous wrinkle fillers, or fat injection, makes use of your own fat to plump areas of the face that has lost volume. Fat is removed from one area of the body, prepared, then injected into the face.

How long do injectable fillers last?

You’ll likely enjoy the effects of an injectable filler treatment for six months all the way up to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and how it reacts with your skin. When your desired results start to fade, fillers can safely be used again.

Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers?

Injectables are ideal for those who want a younger, refreshed appearance without the recovery time associated with traditional plastic surgery. Dermal fillers generally provide a more subtle change than invasive procedures. If you are interested in more permanent results, you may want to consider a surgical procedure, such as a face lift or brow lift. The ideal candidate for injectable fillers is a non-smoker in good overall health who is committed to ongoing skin care and has realistic expectations about what this treatment can achieve.

What’s the recovery like?

Most people resume regular activities immediately following the treatment, though intense physical activity should be avoided for 48 hours. Some may experience redness or temporary numbness at the injection site, mild bruising, or minor swelling. Icing and massage help to resolve these side effects within a few hours.

If you want to look younger and more rested but are not ready to commit to a surgical procedure, call 856-772-6500 to talk with Dr. Franckle about the benefits of injectable fillers. He can recommend a treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals.

" From consultation to surgery and a year worth of follow ups, Dr.Franckle has been amazing. ⁠

He truly listens to his patients and adds his expertise to provide amazing results. I've wanted to have a breast augmentation completed for many years. I've even spoke with other surgeons.⁠

As soon as I had the consultation with Dr. Franckle, I booked the procedure. ⁠

He made me feel at ease, answered every question I had and genuinely cared for my input and how I felt. ⁠

His office staff is also wonderful and very attentive. I'm very satisfied with my results and would highly recommend." - Breast Aug (Jan 2021)⁠
