What’s the Deal with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that can help stop the appearance of aging in its tracks. Typically, dermal fillers utilize naturally-occurring substances (like hyaluronic acid and collagen) or biosynthetic compounds. By inserting these state-of-the-art, medical-grade ingredients beneath the skin, lines in the skin can disappear, volume can be restored, and the prominence of scars can even be reduced or eliminated.
We use the latest dermal fillers, including the Juvaderm and Restylane families of fillers. We have also added Sculptra. a new type of filler that give gradual results as it stimulates your own collagen production. We also use Biostimulators like Sculptra, which stimulate your body's natural production of collagen. Although Sculptra is new to the aesthetic world, It has been around for a long time and was initially FDA-approved for HIV patients who experienced Lipoatrophy.

Ideal candidates have realistic expectations for their treatments and are committed to caring for their skin — which helps the results last. In some situations, dermal filler injections may be less-than-ideal or even dangerous, so Dr. Vasanwala will discuss these with you before any treatment begins.
What to Expect
You can expect your dermal filler procedure to be simple and take less than an hour. Your treatment will be completely customized to your needs. Dr. Vasanwala performs all of the procedures at Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics, so you can rest knowing your beauty is in good hands.
Once you’re relaxed in one of our soothing treatment rooms, Dr. Vasanwala will begin your treatment. Your skin will be cleaned and prepared for the procedure. Typically, a series of injections will be made around the targeted zone. This helps ensure that the results are evenly distributed and as natural-looking as possible.
Back to Your Life In No Time
Most patients need very little recovery time. Some mild swelling is common and usually resolves in 1-2 days. Dermal filler injections usually allow the patient to resume normal activities within hours. You will want to take measures to protect your skin during the healing process. This includes making sure to avoid any unnecessary pressure or stress on the treated area and ensuring it is well protected from the sun. Avoiding strenuous activity — like exercise, intense work, and even sex — is usually recommended for the first 24 to 48 hours.

A Look That Lasts
The beauty of dermal fillers are that they deliver results immediately. Over the next few weeks to months, the filler looks even better because it has had time to integrate with the rest of your tissue and further hydrates your skin. Results can last from 1-2 years. Maintaining the health of your skin will be critical for making sure your rejuvenated appearance lasts as long as possible.
Restoring Your Ageless Beauty
Combination treatment with Botox and Fillers is the most holistic approach to looking like the best version of yourself. Often spot treating one area only highlights deficiencies in other areas. Dr. Vasanwala's goal is to help you look natural, rested,and restored. Her goal is to help you look like yourself, only better.
Dermal filler injections are relatively painless. Your skin may feel sore in the hours following your injections, but Juvederm includes a numbing agent, so you should experience very little discomfort during the treatment process.
The vast majority of patients do not see any complications from dermal filler injections. Make sure to inform Dr. Vasanwala if you’re allergic to lidocaine or have a history of severe allergic reactions. Other rare complications can include swelling, bruising, or redness around the injection sites. Dr. Vasanwala will discuss all of the possible side effects with you during your consultation.
Depending on the treatment area and the product used, fillers last anywhere from 18-24 months.
