Injectable dermal fillers work to plump lips, fill in lines and wrinkles, and fill out cheeks that have grown hollow or flat. As you age, decreases in volume occur due to a loss of the thin layer of fat under facial skin, which dermal fillers can correct. By plumping and filling out your cheeks, you’ll be left with a fuller, less gaunt appearance and fewer creases and lines. Ultimately, you get a more youthful glow.
Dermal fillers are a simple alternative to invasive surgery when you want a younger appearance.

The biggest long-term result from dermal filler treatments is having a more youthful look for 1-2 years. Any other side effects that come with the injectable are minor and short-lived. Shortly after your treatment, you may feel some itching or notice swelling in the injection sites. Redness and lumps may also occur, but they can fade quickly with time. Most people notice results right away and you can go back to work or school immediately after treatment.
If you’re concerned about the side effects that come with dermal filler treatments, talk to Dr. Tran. He works diligently to ensure that all of his patients are safe and feel comfortable with their procedures.
Juvéderm products contain hyaluronic acid, which is also known as HA. HA is a natural substance your body produces that provides your skin with hydration, plumpness, and structure. As you get older, your levels of HA decrease, creating hollowed contours. Dermal fillers help restore more youthful levels of HA so you look younger and more radiant.
Combined with the HA is a small amount of local anesthetic, lidocaine, which works to reduce the amount of pain you might feel with the injections. The injections fill out and plump up your cheeks, and the effects can last up to 18 months.
