Dermal Fillers Miami

As you age, you lose volume in the soft tissue of the most visible skin, predominantly the face and hands, which may result in a saggy or gaunt appearance. Dermal fillers Miami can help restore volume and improve wrinkling for a stunning appearance. Treatments can be administered in the form of an injection and yield spectacular results

Injectable fillers are natural and synthetic materials that have been used for many decades to add volume and to encourage the skin’s natural collagen growth. Dermal fillers Miami also help lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines, enhance the cheeks, plump the lips with lip fillers Miami, and lift and flatten scar depressions. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular fillers and how they can be used to your advantage.

Benefits of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers Miami can provide many advantages for patients looking to reduce the typical signs of aging predominantly on the face:

  • It’s quick and effective. The patient can enjoy the benefits soon after the injections are applied. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate your appearance when the product is injected into the skin. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately after dermal fillers treatment.
  • Dermal fillers contain substances that help the skin such as hyaluronic acid or collagen, which when injected into the skin can produce the anticipated effects. Hyaluronic acid can help the skin absorb water so that it looks more hydrated, firmer, and brighter. The thicker the gel, the more volume is achieved.
  • The long-lasting results can be enjoyed for several months up to half a year so the patient will not have to come back to the clinic for a retouch for a while.
  • The results are natural-looking, very subtle, which is what most patients wish to accomplish, a better version of themselves. People will notice that you look better than before, but they won’t know what exactly happened.
  • Some patients report a boost in self-confidence after dermal fillers. They just love the way they look.

Candidates for injectable fillers

Dermal fillers are an excellent option for fighting the typical signs of aging and preventing wrinkle formation. Whether due to age or weight fluctuations, loss of volume in the face may cause the face to look more tired, have deeper wrinkles and expression lines. The basic candidates for injectable fillers for the face are patients with realistic expectations.

Also, non-smokers are excellent candidates for a cosmetic makeover with dermal fillers treatment because their bodies generally heal faster. Some sucking and squinting motions that patients make when smoking can worsen these fine lines and accelerate the aging process, thus the results may not be as lasting.

Good candidates for fillers will have wrinkles and other issues they may not want to address with a surgical procedure. Dermal fillers are ideal for patients who have specific areas that may require a facelift or may not cover the rest of the face. Patients with allergies might not be good candidates for some types of dermal fillers as they may experience an allergic reaction.


As the thickness and consistency of facial dermal fillers expand, new fillers are formulated to treat several areas throughout the body and create the most natural appearance. Patients can now improve areas such as the cheeks with Juvederm and the lips with Restylane. The most common areas treated with injectable fillers include:

How are injectable dermal fillers administered by our specialists?

There are numerous methods used to inject dermal fillers. It’s all based in the depth of the injection, targeted areas as well as the properties of each product and the desired outcome. Some common methods utilized include:

  • Linear threading – In this method, a tune of filler is injected to eliminate the wrinkle. This technique is generally used to target isolated creases including nasolabial folds or marionette lines.
  • Serial puncture – This technique employs several dermal filler injections along the length of the wrinkle. While the method can be very effective, it increases the likelihood of of bruising.
  • Radial fanning – The purpose of this technique is to fill the targeted area with slight skin punctures so that there is less bruising involved. As the needle is inserted, a tunnel of filler is made while the needle is withdrawn. Without removing the needle from the skin, the surgeon will redirect it into a radial plane as extra filler is added into the desired area until the results are reached.
  • Cross-hatching – Several parallels and perpendicular tunnels of dermal fillers are injected to create cross-hatching, an excellent technique for larger areas.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Most injectable fillers can last up to 12 months, based on the patient and areas treated. Some dermal filler such as Juvederm Vollure can last up to 15-18 months. Botox and other botulinum toxins type A dermal fillers may last four to six months. After the procedure, the body will slowly absorb the filler, and the procedure can be repeated at the right intervals to keep the results.


Some complications may arise from the injection of soft-tissue dermal fillers including:

  • Bruising – This complication is one of the most common ones at the injection site. It can happen notwithstanding the techniques utilized. However, there are some steps you can take to prevent bruising, such as avoiding blood thinners, minimizing the amount of puncture sites, applying ice packs, and refraining from activities that may raise blood pressure.
  • Over-filling – When too much dermal fillers treatment is injected, it may create lumps, and form unevenness. Thankfully, correction is possible in most cases.
  • Under-filling – This can be easily addressed by injecting more filler into the area.
  • Granulomatous inflammation – This reaction can result from any dermal fillers brands, but it can also be treated with medications and graduated injections.
  • Tyndall effect – This happens when the filler is injected too superficially so that the filler is close to the surface of the skin causing discoloration. The complication should improve once the filler is removed.
  • Infection at injection site – This complication is not very common, and it can be caused by a viral infection that spreads into the site, most common in patients with a history of cold sores.

Complications with non-absorbable dermal fillers are challenging to handle since they are not absorbed but rather excised causing scarring to form and leading to unwanted results.


Patients should not use dermal fillers if:

  • The skin is swollen
  • They have allergies to any of the ingredients in the filler
  • They have a bleeding condition that may affect the clotting process
  • They are pregnant, breastfeeding or under 18 at the time the procedure is performed
  • The skin is sensitive to scarring
