What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal filler is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, medical treatment that is injected into the skin to correct creases, wrinkles and folds associated with aging. They also add volume and definition by altering contours to regain a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are intended for men and women who want to enhance facial features such as lips, cheeks or chin. They can also be used to reduce the signs of aging on the face caused by fat loss, collagen and elastin depletion, and sagging skin.
You will be given ice to place over the areas to be treated and your skin is cleaned off with an alcohol preparation pad.
Dr Ahmed will numb up the area so that you will not feel any pain during the treatment.
Then very small injections are made to deposit the filler (hyaluronic acid filler). The whole process takes only minutes. You will see instant results – the area you were concerned with will be completely filled out!

Recovery & Results
There is no real “down-time” with this type of treatment. You can perform your normal activities the same day. You will notice an instant result. Some people have minor bruising and swelling which will go away quickly. You should use ice the day of the procedure to keep this to a minimum. On the day you come in, you will have a fuller face without wrinkles or full beautiful lips!
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
You will love how you look more youthful. With full lips and without your smile folds, you will appear natural and young! Individual results may vary.
