Facial fillers can do so much for you and your appearance. Injected into strategic areas of the face to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, facial fillers can help you appear more rested and give you a more youthful look. At Bexley Dermatology, Dr. Matthew Zirwas and Dr. Jill Fichtel are your dermatologists for facial fillers in Bexley, OH!
How Facial Fillers Help
Your skin naturally contains collagen, a protein that helps give skin its elasticity. Collagen levels in the skin often begin to diminish with age, a decline that is associated with a loss of elasticity, increasingly sagging skin, and the development of lines and wrinkles. All of these factors can cause a person to appear older. Luckily, facial fillers from our Bexley office replenish the skin’s natural collagen levels. By restoring the collagen, skin elasticity improves, sagging is reduced, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles diminish so that you look younger and more rested.
Many different types of facial fillers are available today. Most are injected directly into problem areas, including the forehead and cheeks, as well as around the eyes, mouth, and nose. Popular brands of facial fillers available at Bexley Dermatology include Juvederm Ultra XC and Plus XC, Voluma, and various types of Restylane, such as Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft. During a consultation, we can help you select the right facial filler for you!
Facial Filler Treatments
Treatment sessions for the different types of facial fillers follow similar procedures. Before treatment begins, the area is gently cleansed. Some patients benefit from the application of a topical anesthetic to minimize potential discomfort prior to injecting the facial fillers, although most of the time it proves unnecessary. The facial filler is then injected into the problem areas using a fine needle. Depending on the size and number of areas to be treated, a treatment session can last between 15 and 45 minutes. Smoother, younger looking skin will then be visible immediately after treatment!

More About Facial Fillers
Dermal fillers are a safe, quick and an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles that provide a youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers used today are hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan, is a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation. It does not require skin testing because it is found in the body. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins. The transparent gel is injected into the facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smooth folds.
Types of Fillers
Different injectable fillers do different things. Here are a few types:
- Ultra Plus
- Juvederm Voluma
- Juvederm Ultra
Filler Time Expectancy
Dermal fillers don't last forever. Different facial fillers last for different intervals of time, some last several months, some last up to a year, while others last even longer.
Over time, the natural solutions injected into the body begin to break down where the body will remove it naturally. Fortunately, many of our patients love their results enough that they opt to get subsequent treatments before their results wear off. That way they can enjoy their more youthful results longer.
You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Bexley doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.
Dermal fillers have come a long way in the past few decades. Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic facial fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at Bexley Dermatology in Bexley, OH.
Facial fillers are an effective way to improve your outward appearance and help you feel great about the way you look.

What is a dermal filler?
Unlike other cosmetic dermatology procedures like Botox, dermal fillers add volume to the facial skin to smooth unwanted wrinkles and creases, plump lips, and restore fullness to the cheeks. In addition to addressing wrinkles and plumping cheeks, dermal fillers can also simply fill out the face, adding volume to the hollows of the eyes or temple areas or even correct acne scars. This versatile procedure is often recommended for those patients who have fat pads which have shifted underneath their skin.
How do dermal fillers work?
Some dermal fillers use natural substances found in the body to fill out the skin’s volume and provide a smaller risk for reactions than their synthetic counterparts. Synthetic fillers last longer than natural fillers and provide more semi-permanent results. Most dermal filler procedures last about a year before the filler begins breaking down, requiring a touch-up injection. During the procedure, your doctor injects the filler directly into the skin underneath the unwanted crease, wrinkle, or fold. The filler plumps the area, smoothing the skin to make the imperfection less noticeable.
