What are DermaFillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables that enhance the appearance of skin by minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and restoring depleted volume to hollow facial contours. We believe that maintaining optimal levels of structural proteins is crucial in preserving our youthful appearance and to keep our skin looking firm and smooth.

DermaFiller Frequently Asked Questions

What type of filler is right for me?
What filler is used in what area of the face is dependent on what issues you are trying to improve. Fillers can be used in all areas of the face. They can be used to improve skin wrinkles as well as provide more volume to areas like the lips and cheeks. Different fillers are used for each purpose. Dr. Roka will carefully assess your face and goals before offering an individualized treatment plan.
What is recovery like for facial fillers?
Dr. Roka and his staff will review the recovery restrictions that are specific to your filler procedure before and after the injections. A convenient handout will also be provided so you don’t have to worry about remembering everything.
Are facial fillers permanent?
The “off- the-shelf” fillers that Dr. Roka uses are not permanent. This is a benefit and a drawback. The benefit of a temporary change is that if you don’t like the result, the filler will be broken down overtime. The downside however, is that if you like the results, they will eventually go away. Also depending on the amount of filler needed to accomplish your goals, this route may be relatively expensive.
Are there any specific risks with facial fillers?
Just like injection of any foreign material in the body, there are risks that reactions could occur at the injection site such as irritation, pain, redness and swelling. There can be asymmetry between sides of the face where the product is injected. It is possible to have over and under correction. However, there are also more uncommon but significant risks, which include infection, and injection into blood vessels in the face. This is why it is important to use a trained professional when treating your face!
