How Can Dermal Fillers Help?

Fillers have many uses, including:

  • Filling lines, wrinkles, scars, tear troughs, and deep eyelid-cheek hollows
  • Rejuvenating and plumping lips
  • Repositioning and adding volume to cheeks
  • Reducing jowls, “marionette lines,” and laugh lines
  • Adding definition to the jawline
  • Adding volume to the temples
  • Increasing chin projection and reducing deep lines between the lower lip and chin
  • Correcting a concave or asymmetrical nose
  • Rejuvenating stretched and hollowed earlobes
  • Camouflaging prominent tendons and veins in the hands
  • Rejuvenating labia minora and majora

Risks and Complications

Slight bruising at the needle site is always a possibility, but larger bruises are rare. If you do experience larger bruising, it may last 3 to 5 days and can usually be easily camouflaged with concealers.

Eating fresh pineapple, including the core, in the time spanning from 3 days before to 3 days after treatment can help reduce bruising.

To further prevent bruising, avoid the following items 7 to 10 days prior to treatment (if authorized by your family physician and/or cardiologist):

  • Alcohol for 72 hours prior to injections
  • Anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium (Advil®)
  • Warfarin sodium (Coumadin®)
  • Fish oil
  • Vitamin E supplements
  • Omega-3 oils
  • Ginger
  • Ginkgo biloba
  • Ginseng
  • Chamomile tea
  • Green tea
  • Garlic pills
  • Any other osteopathic, naturopathic, or Chinese herbal medicine

Acetaminophen (Tylenol®) is safe if you need a pain reliever.

Other potential risks with injectables are rare but include vascular and nerve injuries, skin damage, hematomas, infections, asymmetry, and pain.
