Injectable Dermal Fillers in Fredericksburg, VA

What are Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are often utilized to replace diminished facial volume. The face can lose volume for various reasons, but weight loss and age are the leading causes. The process works by injecting the liquid filler under the skin's surface to fill areas lacking volume or shape. Fillers are an excellent, nonsurgical option for Fredericksburg, VA patients looking to smooth sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines to create a younger-looking complexion. They can also be added to other aesthetic procedures to provide the benefits of a facelift without going under the knife, the presence of scars, and the required downtime that follows. Our team proudly offers a variety of dermal fillers to help meet the expectations and desires of each patient, such as the Restylane® collection and the JUVÉDERM® family. To find out which injectable fillers are suitable for you, we invite you to visit Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg where Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki can help you learn more.

How Do Injectable Dermal Fillers Work?

Before your injection procedure, we will meet with you to learn more about your desired results and determine which product will best achieve them. At the time of the actual procedure, a topical numbing cream will be administered as a local anesthetic to make the injections as pain-free as possible. After deciding the amount of filler needed, it will be carefully and evenly injected through a very fine needle. Keeping the desired result in mind, either a portion or an entire syringe could be used during the procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Injectable Dermal Fillers?

For Fredericksburg, VA patients, injectable dermal fillers can help with multiple needs and provide a handful of benefits, including:

  • Refreshing and plumping areas that have become hollow or sunken
  • Creating facial softness to attain your optimal facial shape
  • Smoothing out regions with sagging or fine lines
  • Boosting your confidence in your skin and overall appearance

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.

How much do injectable fillers cost?

The cost of a dermal filler will vary depending on the type used and the amount used. During your consultation, your injector will create a customized treatment plan that matches your needs and wants. Then, we will be able to give you a cost estimate and discuss any current specials.

How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?

The type of filler used for you will depend on the area being treated and your desired outcome. Depending on whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or want to create plumper lips, we will understand your needs before suggesting the filler or fillers that will deliver the best results. Now that there are so many brands of fillers, it may be challenging to choose which one is ideal for your needs and goals, but we will work to ensure you experience a natural-looking, rejuvenated look.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?

A wrinkle relaxer, like BOTOX®, treats lines and wrinkles (mainly on the brow and in the corners of the eyes) by limiting the movement of the underlying muscles. Injectable fillers restore volume to your face to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and depressions. Injectable fillers can also be used to add more volume to your lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.

How long will the results last?

How long your results last will depend on what brand(s) is used and what area was treated. In some patients, results may last as long as one year, whereas others may want another treatment after a few months. Touch-up injections can be performed at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg to sustain your improvements.

What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can improve signs of aging throughout your face by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be used on parentheses, marionettes, and corner lines near your mouth and nose. Also, they can temporarily restore volume to your cheeks and lips.
