What are Dermal Fillers and Wrinkles Fillers?

When it comes to the area around your eyes, it is often the first to show signs of aging. As we start to age, our skin loses elasticity, the eyelid stretches, and the brow begins to look like it has descended. Some of the common reasons for this are aging, sun damage, lifestyle choices, and, yes, your genetics. Often this results in what we refer to as bags under the eyes and wrinkles around the eyes. So how can this be treated in a non-surgical way?

As patients are treated in our office, we take each case and treat them with a customized treatment. We strive to reach the goals of our patients but also keep in mind their comfort level. When reconstructive options are done around the eye, it has to be natural and subtle not to damage the eye area and keep the structures around the eyes. A non-surgical rejuvenation procedure we offer is dermal fillers.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers or wrinkle fillers, diminish fine lines and restore fullness to the face. A dermal filler procedure typically takes 30 minutes, and the results can last 4 months to a year, depending on the patient. Dermal fillers are safe and effective and can treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.

More areas that can be treated with fillers can include areas around the mouth, chin dimpling, cheeks, lips, and even your hands. Some common side effects of using dermal fillers can include bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. A few not-so-common side effects include nodules or bumps under the skin that can be seen and felt and may need to be removed by surgery. It would be best if you always talked to your doctor about the side effects of fillers before you have the procedure.

The best time to start getting dermal fillers is when you notice wrinkles around the eye area. Some patients begin in their mid 20’s while other patients wait until their mid 30’s. Once you reach 35, you lose 10% of the fat in your face due to the natural aging process. Every decade after that, you will continue to lose approximately 10%. The good thing is our office can help with our different treatment options.

Dr. Kulak did a fabulous job. She repaired a very large gaping hole where my mother’s eyelid wise. Dr. Kulak was able to do so without using a skin graft, which greatly shortened the recovery time. Now, my mother’s eyelid looks virtually the same even though about 75% of it was removed. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Kulak’s professionalism, attention to detail, concern and care. Highly... recommend her more
