Dermal Fillers



Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment that is injected under the skin to replace lost volume, fill wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. The human body has a naturally occurring sugar known as hyaluronic acid which gives support to the skin. Various factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking, and the natural process of aging can diminish hyaluronic acid in the body over time – resulting in thin, dry, and wrinkled skin. This gives an older facial appearance that negatively impacts one’s aesthetic facial aesthetics and sense of self-confidence. Non-invasive dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Captique, Perlane, and more can be used to alleviate these imperfections for a refreshed younger look.

LA plastic surgeon Dr. Ruston Sanchez has helped numerous men and women from Baton Rouge and surrounding Louisiana areas of Lafayette, Hammond, and New Orleans achieve their aesthetic goals and improve their confidence with dermal fillers. Dr. Ruston works individually with each one of his patients to find a treatment plan that will produce the desired outcome. If you are looking to remove concerning facial imperfections or signs of aging without undergoing invasive surgery, dermal fillers are for you.

Who is an ideal candidate for dermatological fillers?

Facial fillers rectify wrinkles and folds around the lips, mouth, and nasolabial folds in order to improve your facial aesthetics. This kind of treatment is recommended for men or women who are looking to address the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Sagging skin
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Fold lines around the mouth, nose, and eyes
  • Damaged skin
  • Wrinkling on the face

Dermal fillers are usually administered on facial areas (e.g. around the lips, cheeks, nose, and mouth). It is important that you avoid taking alcohol, smoking, and using some medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin before a filler treatment is administered. During injectable filler consultation in Baton Rouge, LA, the surgeon will listen to your concerns, ask questions, and let you know whether this treatment is for you. Dr. Ruston Sanchez is a committed professional who works diligently to create an individualized treatment plan to meet the needs and expectations of each patient. Many of his cosmetic filler patients enjoy an improvement in their facial appearance, along with increased self-esteem and confidence.

How are cosmetic fillers administered

Dermal fillers are an outpatient non-surgical cosmetic procedure that takes only a few minutes. This type of procedure is lightly referred to as the ‘lunch hour’ cosmetic treatment. Juvederm fillers are typically hyaluronic acid mixed with gel to make it malleable and ready to be injected under the skin. Hyaluronic acid stimulates the production of collagen (connective tissue) that plumps up the skin. After understanding the patient’s concerns and expected outcome, Dr. Ruston will use a marker pen to indicate the areas that need to be treated. He will apply a numbing cream on the area to help reduce discomfort during the process. The surgeon will then use a syringe to inject the preferred amount of Juvederm filler little by little into the skin. Afterward, he will gently massage the treatment area to ensure that the filler is evenly spread and swelling is minimized. Most injectable fillers contain pain-reducing lidocaine that improves the patient’s comfort level. This non-invasive procedure is popular because it is quick, easy, and results are immediate.

Recovery after dermal filler injections

The recovery period after dermal filler treatment is very minimal. You are advised to avoid strenuous activities, smoking, alcohol, and sun exposure for at least 24 hours after this procedure. There is no downtime associated with this treatment and you will be able to get back to your daily routines immediately after. However, you can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, itching, lumps, or bumps which disappear after a few hours. Should you have any specific questions while recovering from your facial filler, Dr. Ruston’s team will be available on call. A single injectable treatment will last for about 6-12 months, after which you will need another session to maintain the result.

BOTOX Cosmetic vs. Dermal Fillers

Both dermal fillers and BOTOX cosmetics have one goal which is to achieve a smoother and more youthful facial appearance. Dermal fillers work by stimulating the body’s collagen to plump the skin and add volume with immediate results. On the other hand, BOTOX works by relaxing overactive muscles to loosen facial wrinkles and results typically last for only 3 months.
