Dr. Johnson and Dr. Smith offer dermal fillers as a minimally invasive alternative to surgical procedures. Injectable fillers can reduce wrinkles (fill nasolabial folds and marionette lines), make lips fuller, and give lips more definition. Dermal fillers can also be used to lift or fill our cheeks. After performing a thorough assessment of your face, Dr. Johnson and Dr. Smith will recommend the best treatment for you. The area will be cleansed and anesthetized using local and/or topical anesthetics to minimize discomfort. The process only takes a few minutes and results are seen immediately. Patients may experience redness, bruising, and swelling. Even in the most experienced hands, dermal fillers may bruise your skin. Ice should be applied to the treated areas and we use Arnicare gel to minimize bruising. Aspirin or aspirin containing medications, Vitamin E, Fish oils, and other blood thinners such as Lovenox, heparin, coumadin (warfarin) and xarelto (rivaroxaban) should not be taken for at least 7 days. Discontinuation of any medication should be discussed with your primary care physician.
