Facial Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. Fillers are used to “fill in” lines, valleys, depressions, and hollows of the face or to add fullness to the lips, cheeks, and chin. The most popular dermal fillers Restylane®  and Juvederm® are made from Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the skin that helps to give skin its volume and  “plumpness.” These dermal filler products are made by Medicis Aesthetics and are FDA approved. As fillers have become more mainstream, today there are more options than ever to choose from. During your consultation at our Baltimore, Maryland area practice, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Schuster can help determine which option is appropriate for you.

Filler Treatment

Fillers are performed in Dr. Schuster’s Baltimore, Maryland area office in a short, simple visit. A topical anesthetic cream is applied beforehand and occasionally a local anesthetic can be used for the treatment of the lips. Bruising and swelling is mild to moderate and can last from one day to one week.* Most patients are able to return to full activity without concern the following day, though some with more bruising prefer to take off a few days.* Patients should plan to apply ice to areas treated with Restylane® after their procedure. Make-up may be worn the next day, and patients are able to return to exercise the next day. The results are seen immediately, though they will continue to soften and improve over several weeks. Fillers usually last 6 to 12 months and can be tweaked or repeated as often as desired.
