Injectable fillers are administered to our Dallas patients to diminish wrinkles and aging lines of the face such as the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), and marionette lines (sad mouth corners).

Does it matter what kind of dermal filler is used?

Dermal fillers vary greatly. Many currently exist in the market, each with their own specifications, indications, and side-effect profile. As so many variables exist, please consult with Dr. Kassir in his clinic in Dallas to determine the filler or fillers that best suit your needs.

Can they be used anywhere on the face?

They have been used in more than 3 million treatments in over 70 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles. They are currently indicated in the U.S. for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, corners of the mouth, chin lines, and scars.

How long does it last?

The fillers are proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies have shown that the effects generally last for about six months, but this varies according to the filler, the indication, and the patient.

How often should I have filler injections?

Treatments are typically scheduled at six-month intervals; volume of fillers will vary from patient to patient. Please be sure to consult Dr. Kassir about recommendations for follow-up treatments.

Is anesthesia needed for the filler procedure?

Topical anesthesia is applied to the area prior to the procedure in order to minimize discomfort.

How much does filler cost?

The cost of filler depends on the type of filler used and how much volume (syringes) each patient needs. Call our office for more details.

What is the downtime after getting filler?

There is minimal downtime after receiving injectable dermal filler. There may be some slight swelling and/or bruising in the area treated.

Is it safe to get filler injected in the hollows (tear troughs) under the eyes?

There is increased risk for complications if one gets filler injected around the lower eyelids. There are more blood vessels and the skin is thinner under the eyes, so there is a higher chance of bruising, “beading” (small little bumps), and a risk of blindness if the filler enters the vasculature around the eyes.

What is the best filler for lip augmentation?

Fillers have different thicknesses, textures, and are made of different materials. Every patient should be evaluated in order to choose the best dermal filler for lip augmentation.

Can dermal fillers reduce vertical lip lines?

Yes, fillers can help reduce the depth of the vertical lines around the mouth, which may be caused by smoking, drinking straws, or genetics.

What is a good filler for the areas of the face?

Dermal fillers should be easy to use by the injector, stable, easily flow, and be long lasting but absorbable. It should cause a naturally appearing contour to the face, and most definitely be FDA approved. There are permanent and temporary fillers. Temporary fillers are advantageous because they eventually resolve, and many hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are reversible if you do not like the appearance or it migrates.
