Dermal fillers are highly customizable, so treatment can be tailored to your facial structure, cosmetic concerns and aesthetic goals. In your consultation with Dr. Antún, he will take the time to understand your reasons for treatment before designing a plan that is tailored to your needs and skin type.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE?
The details of the procedure will vary for each patient, depending on the area of treatment and desired results. While most fillers are formulated with lidocaine to actively numb the area during the injection, Dr. Antún will determine whether a topical anesthetic is necessary before commencing your procedure. After your concerns have been addressed and the treatment plan has been set, Dr. Antún will administer the filler to the predetermined areas using a series of injections that target the skin’s dermal layers. The result will be a well-toned facial contour, reduced creases and a more youthful profile. Filler appointments take from 15 to 30 minutes, and since there is no downtime required, patients can resume regular activity immediately after treatment.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE
Dermal fillers can be adapted to the needs, concerns and skin type of each patient, making this treatment suitable for anyone seeking to refresh or revitalize areas of the face. Fillers are ideal for men and women who are not quite ready for surgery but are hoping to correct volume loss and reduce signs of aging. This procedure is a highly advanced surgical alternative to reshaping and contouring the face for a smoother complexion and a more symmetrical frame. If you are experiencing a lack of confidence due to sagging skin, or would merely like to add volume to particular areas for better definition (lips, cheeks, chin), dermal fillers may help you achieve your desired look. This treatment is also suitable for those who are mostly happy with their facial appearance but would like to postpone the effects of aging and enjoy a more youthful look for longer.
WHICH FILLER IS RIGHT FOR ME?
There are various types of fillers available for treating different areas of the face. For instance, those seeking to enhance the chin and lower face will benefit from a different filler to those wishing to reduce lines and wrinkles for a smoother and clearer complexion. As each patient requires a unique approach, Dr. Antún will examine your profile to determine which filler will be most suitable for your concerns and aesthetic desires.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Patients can generally return to regular activity immediately after treatment. Some patients experience mild bruising or swelling in the area, which usually disappears within a few hours. Generally, you can enjoy immediate improvements after your procedure and will notice enhanced facial contours and a reduction in creases and lines. Most patients tend to look their best about three to seven days following treatment when swelling has subsided and results have settled.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
The duration of results will vary for each patient, depending on the specific filler used and how quickly the hyaluronic acid breaks down and dissolves within the skin. Results may last from six months to two years, so for optimum, long-term effects, you may require revision treatments every one to two years. To maintain a rejuvenated and youthful appearance, some patients undergo maintenance treatments every six months. Dr. Antún will assess your aesthetic desires to determine the quantity and regularity of procedures required to prolong your results.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that help to restore or add volume to the face. By targeting the skin’s underlying tissue, this treatment helps to enhance the foundational structures, which results in improved facial contours, reduced wrinkles and a more youthful appearance. Most dermal fillers are formulated using hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance within the body that helps to retain water and maintain hydration. Once injected beneath the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water for a skin plumping effect, which also serves to counteract facial creases, loss of skin elasticity and other signs of aging.
WHAT AREAS CAN DERMAL FILLERS TREAT?
Dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical alternative for reshaping and defining the face. A broad range of filler types and products means that this treatment can be performed to address several aesthetic concerns across various areas of the face. Dermal fillers are commonly used for:
Lips – to restore volume and definition or increase volume for a naturally plumper shape
Temples - to reduce the amount of temporal hollowing that appears with age
Eyes – to treat under-eye bags or hollowness and correct the fatigued or aged look
Non-surgical facelifting – to correct sagging areas and improve facial contours
Chin enhancement – to restore volume, fullness and definition to the lower face
Cheek augmentation – to repair hollow or loose skin around the cheeks
Nasolabial folds - to reduce the look of lines between the nose and mouth
Nose – to enhance and reshape the nose and re-define your facial structure
Wrinkles and creases – to smoothen out facial lines and correct the aged appearance
