How Dermal Fillers Work

Regardless of age or gender, our skin naturally starts to lose its elasticity due to reduced collagen and hyaluronic acid as we age. Fine lines and wrinkles become more prevalent, and we lose volume in our cheeks and lips.

Luckily, thanks to advancements in dermal fillers, you can now achieve younger-looking skin without surgery or painful down time.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that can be injected beneath the skin to boost facial volume, smooth lines and creases, and enhance natural facial contours.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat multiple things, including:

  • Smoothing out lines around the nose, eyes and mouth
  • Reverse the loss of volume in the cheeks and temples
  • Plump thin lips
  • Lessen deep tear troughs and sunken eyes
  • Improve smile lines
  • Improve facial symmetry

Hyaluronic acid fillers, are among the most popular FDA-approved dermal fillers on the market today. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and plays a key role in maintaining skin volume, elasticity, and hydration.

When injected into the skin, it is effective in revitalizing and plumping up the skin and instantly smoothing out lines and wrinkles to give a youthful look.

Getting Cosmetic Fillers at Our Medical Spa


At Elite Medical Spa, the process of getting dermal fillers typically starts with a consultation. One of our qualified practitioners will meet with you to discuss your concerns and desired goals. They will also assess your area of concern, review your medical history, and recommend the most appropriate type of dermal filler for your unique needs.

It’s essential to be completely transparent about your medical history, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, and medications can put your safety or results at risk.

During Treatment

The treatment area will be cleaned prior to the injection. The practitioner may also apply a small amount of numbing cream or local anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable during the procedure.

Once the area is numb, the practitioner will inject a predetermined amount of dermal filler into the target area using a fine needle. The injection may be repeated several times around the area to achieve your desired result.


Depending on the filler and the area treated, you may be able to notice results immediately after treatment. Your practitioner will give you detailed instructions on caring for your skin and lowering the risk of complications for the next few days.
This may include avoiding strenuous exercises, applying ice to the treated area, and avoiding excessive heat or sun exposure for a period of time.


You may be asked to return to the clinic for a follow-up appointment in a few weeks to ensure that you are happy with the results and make any necessary adjustments.
