Dermal Fillers Q & A

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers contain synthetic forms of naturally occurring compounds, such as hyaluronic acid. These ingredients, administered in a gel-like material, attract vital nutrients and moisture. So while the gel instantly fills in gaps, the water molecule-absorbing components of dermal fillers further help provide natural looking (and feeling) results.

But dermal fillers do more than fill in areas where you’ve lost volume or never had the volume you desire. As they gradually absorb, they stimulate collagen production. New collagen fibers start forming and stacking neatly on top of one another, leaving naturally firmer, tighter skin behind.


Which areas can dermal fillers treat?

With so many lines of clinical-grade and FDA-approved dermal fillers available at Lustre Med Spa, your dermal filler treatment is tailored to your specific treatment area (or areas). Dermal fillers can:


  • Plump your lips
  • Contour your cheeks and jawline
  • Soften wrinkles and creases
  • Minimize the appearance of scars
  • Decrease the lower lid shadow


Some dermal fillers are even designed to add volume to the backs of your hands, so your hands won’t give away your true age another day.


What happens during a dermal filler appointment?

You should feel entirely relaxed, comfortable, and confident during your dermal filler appointment at Lustre Med Spa. Frances might suggest arriving early to apply a topical numbing cream or ice pack to numb your skin for optimal comfort — you can also do this from home before your visit.

As you sit back and relax in the spa chair, Frances talks with you and shows you exactly where she’s going to inject and what you’re going to feel. During your treatment, Frances gently massages your treatment area to encourage the dermal filler to enter gaps and grooves. Many treatment areas take just about 15-20 minutes, and with no downtime necessary, you can return to your normal activities afterward.


How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers are one of the longest-lasting aesthetic treatments available on the market. Most men and women find that their dermal filler service provides optimal results for anywhere from 12-24 months, depending on which brand they select and the severity of their individual volume loss.

Frances continuously adds to the dermal filler product line available at Lustre Med Spa, in an effort to continue providing you with the longest-lasting fillers possible. Plus, she may even suggest complimenting your dermal filler service with Botox® injections, to further smooth out your skin and help you look as young as you feel.
