Why consider dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to fill lines and folds in the face. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the lips, chin, cheeks and temples creating a pleasing facial contour, youthful volume and shape, and reversing the signs of aging-related volume loss. Dr. Stephen Weber, a double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in Denver, CO, is a nationally renowned dermal filler authority.

Review - Dermal Fillers

Who makes a good candidate for facial fillers?

Men and women who want to improve the appearance of their face may be candidates for a dermal filler procedure. The procedure is typically performed on healthy, non-smoking patients who have no serious medical conditions and a positive mindset and realistic expectations.

Which dermal fillers does Dr. Weber use?

Our Denver dermal fillers offer an alternative to the traditional facelift and other surgical procedures. They also work differently than neuromodulators like BOTOX. Rather than relaxing or adjusting facial muscles, dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume or filling in a line, crease, or wrinkle.

There are many different brands of dermal fillers. Dr. Weber is a veteran injector of the most popular ones, including:

  • Juvederm
  • Voluma
  • Volbella
  • Vollure
  • Radiesse
  • Belotero
  • Restylane
  • Sculptra
  • Bellafill

Different types and brands are chosen based on the patient’s concerns and Dr. Weber’s experience and preference.

What is Dr. Weber’s approach to facial fillers?

Dr. Weber performs dermal filler procedures in the office setting. The procedure is carried out in the following manner:

  • A topical numbing cream, dental block, ice or chilled air is used to numb the treatment area.
  • An antibacterial agent is used to clean the skin.
  • The dermal filler is carefully injected into predetermined problematic areas.
  • Once the filler is administered, the skin is lightly massaged to ensure the filler is evenly distributed. Total procedure time is 15-30 minutes depending on the severity of the patient’s condition and their goals.

What will my results look like?

Patients enjoy immediate results after their procedure. These results may last anywhere from 9-24 months depending on the type of filler used, the volume injected, and the patient’s response to treatment.

Results are always customized to meet the needs of the patient. Common results include the following:

  • A reduction in facial lines and folds
  • A more youthful, rested and lifted face
  • An aesthetically pleasing facial contour

Before undergoing their procedure, Dr. Weber works with patients to create a practical treatment plan that will help them achieve the results they want.

What will my initial consultation entail?

An initial consultation with Dr. Weber consists of the following:

  • A thorough medical history review
  • A physical examination and evaluation of the face
  • A discussion regarding desires, goals, and expectations

Before making the decision to undergo a dermal filler procedure, Dr. Weber invites patients to ask any questions or state any concerns they may have. He patiently listens and then answers and addresses them so patients feel completely comfortable with their decision.

Dr. Weber will provide access to our library of before and after photos for dermal filler patients in the Denver and Lone Tree areas. This will give you a better idea of the wonderful results Dr. Weber is able to facilitate using unique formulations. You are also always welcome to bring in your own pictures culled from magazines and the internet that reflect your individual tastes and aesthetic preferences. This will help Dr. Weber to understand your goals better and ensure you are both on the same page.

If there are any other facial rejuvenation procedures that are of interest to you, such as Ultherapy, laser skin resurfacing or PRP injections, Dr. Weber will gladly discuss these with you during the consultation. He can create a comprehensive anti-aging regimen that is entirely non-surgical and tailored expressly to your needs.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Are there risks associated with the dermal filler procedure?

There are risks associated with all surgical procedures. The risks associated with a dermal filler procedure are minimal. In nearly all cases, the benefits of the procedure greatly outweigh the potential risks. Specific risks and the preventative measures Dr. Weber takes to minimize them will be discussed at your initial consultation.

What is the difference between dermal fillers and BOTOX?

BOTOX and dermal fillers are used to treat similar conditions. The distinguishing factor between the two is the mechanism of action. BOTOX temporarily paralyzes facial muscles. Dermal fillers fill areas of the face that have been the subject of volume loss or scarring. BOTOX works on dynamic wrinkles, or those associated with muscle movement, while fillers work on static lines and folds and areas of deflation in the face.

How do I know if a BOTOX or dermal filler procedure is right for me?

Patients who are trying to decide between having BOTOX or a dermal filler procedure are encouraged to ask Dr. Weber for his well-considered opinion regarding which procedure will best treat their condition. BOTOX works on certain dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines, while fillers work on static wrinkles.

What types of conditions can a dermal filler procedure treat?

Dermal filler procedures are commonly used to treat smile lines, smoker lines, lower eyelid bags, deflated cheekbones, hollow temples, and thin lips. They are also used to augment and shape the cheeks, fill the marionette area, accentuate the jawline, and augment and fill a weak chin.

How can I maximize my results?

Results can be maximized by taking care of your skin. Sunscreen should always be worn. Additional measures that will ensure maximum results include living a healthy lifestyle and not smoking.

What does minimally invasive mean?

The term minimally invasive refers to a surgical procedure that is performed using a very small incision or needle prick. More and more surgical procedures are being performed as minimally invasive procedures because fewer risks and a shorter recovery time are associated with these types of procedures.

Will I have a scar after my procedure?

A very small needle will be used to inject the dermal filler beneath the skin. You will not have a scar after your procedure. In fact, you will not be able to notice where the filler was injected after a day or so.

Where does Dr. Weber perform dermal filler procedures?

Dr. Weber performs dermal filler procedures at his office in the Denver area. Each procedure is performed in a comfortable and relaxed office setting.

Is it important to have my procedure performed by a cosmetic authority?

Facial Plastic Surgeons are the most qualified medical professionals who perform dermal filler procedures as they understand the three dimensional anatomy of the face in exquisite detail. Having your procedure performed by a cosmetic veteran helps to ensure that you get the absolute best results. Dr. Weber is a double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon with the education, skills, and experience needed to help patients achieve long-lasting results.

What happens if a filler is not injected properly?

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed using a special substance known as Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase treatment can be used to reduce or remove troubling areas of hyaluronic acid filler. In most cases, poorly placed fillers can be significantly improved within hours. Dr. Weber is the leading revision dermal filler authority in Denver, CO.

Can I see before and after photos of some of Dr. Weber’s patients?

Absolutely! Dr. Weber will be happy to show you before and after photos of some of his patients. He will carefully select photos of patients who had a condition similar to yours so you know exactly what type of results to expect. He will also take photos of you before and after your procedure for comparison purposes.

How do I determine if I am a dermal filler candidate?

The definitive way to determine if you are a candidate is to arrange and attend an initial consultation with Dr. Weber.

What should I bring to my initial consultation?

Dr. Weber asks patients to bring a list of the medications and herbal supplements they are currently taking. If you would like to bring a list of questions for Dr. Weber or photos for him to look at, you are encouraged to do so.
