How Fillers Help You Look Younger
Hyaluronic acid is used in dermal fillers to create a plumping and lifting effect. Compare this to neuromodulators, like BOTOX® and Dysport, which affect the muscle to smooth the skin, but do not add volume. The size of HA molecules is what allows it to remain in place at the treatment area, holding many times its weight in water molecules to create a fuller effect on the soft tissue. HA is naturally found in the body, which makes dermal fillers popular among many patients; treatment is well tolerated.
When skin is hydrated and full, fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. As we age, we naturally produce less collagen, elastin, and even our own hyaluronic acid. This, in combination with the effects of gravity, which makes skin droop, creates papery and dry soft tissue. Dermal fillers work to combat this natural aging process.
What to Expect During and After Treatment
Dr. Parkins will discuss a customized treatment plan for you. Numbing cream will be applied to the areas chosen for injection to help you be comfortable. Ice is also used to help decrease any pain that may be caused by the injections.
You may notice some slight bruising as you heal. Patients are advised to minimize activity for 24 hours after their treatment, which helps prevent excess bruising from increased blood pressure. Patients who are concerned about swelling after their injections can apply ice packs to soothe the area.
Treatment may be provided in a few sessions to ensure results are natural and you have achieved the effect desired. Patients may have a follow-up visit a few weeks or months later to touch-up and supplement initial results if they wish. Depending on the filler applied, maintenance injections may not be necessary for 6 months to two years.
Amazing. I never doubted that I had an experienced doctor. I loved everyone. Recovery was exactly like she said. I have never regretted the decision for one minute. I went from a fake 36C to a “real” 36DD. Over muscle. Everyone says they don’t even look fake. They feel awesome. I would do anything with Dr. Parkins.
My experience with Dr. Parkins and her staff could not have been better! Not only were my results better than I could have ever imagined, the staff was AMAZING!!!

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermal Fillers
Can Dermal Fillers Correct Jowling?
Fillers provide a non-surgical solution to mild and moderate jowling. The injections lift and firm skin, and correct the heaviness and droopiness around the jaw and chin from the natural aging process. Significant drooping and excess skin may need to be corrected with a lower facelift, but this is unique to each patient and their goals.
How Much Bruising is Normal?
This can depend on where the filler was applied and how many injections were necessary. Delicate skin, such as the under-eyes, may be more susceptible to bruising. Mild bruising is normal but can be minimized with after-care tips from Dr. Parkins, such as taking an arnica montana supplement and applying ice to the treatment areas. Patients with slightly higher blood pressure than normal may find that they bruise more easily.
What is the Best Dermal Filler to Use?
There is no single filler that is best for everyone. While brands like Juvéderm and Restylane are certainly popular, they may not be best for you. Certain fillers, for example, are used to fill the lips and under-eye hollows; not all fillers can be used in all areas of the face. The best way to determine which filler is right for you is through a consultation at Parkins Plastic Surgery.
