Dermal fillers are used for improvement of lines and wrinkles, lifting of the face, as well as facial balancing. Restylane, Juvederm and Revanesse Versa are the most common types of dermal fillers. Dr. Uzma Quraishi is an expert and experienced injector with more than 18 years of experience with dermal filler injections. She has travelled all over the world to learn new and advanced techniques.

Dermal fillers are made of a naturally occurring sugar in the skin called hyaluronic acid. Think of dermal fillers as bio-identical to what your body produces naturally but disappears over time, giving you the appearance of the face falling, jowls and facial decent. Dermal fillers are intended to replace this volume and restore the natural lift of your face.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat any area of the face, including the nasolabial folds, marrionette folds, cheeks, depression under the eyes, lips and lip lines, between brows and forehead … and much more.

Dermal fillers can also enhance your appearance and give you facial features you wished for such as a more pronounced jaw chin line or fuller lips. All of these options for dermal fillers will be discussed in length prior to treatment so that you can participate in the goal planning.

Placing dermal fillers in the right place can restore your appearance, not change it.

Some people are concerned that filler will make you look “filled” and we use advanced techniques to ensure that you reclaim your natural look. You won’t look different with filler, just better.

Dr. Uzma Quraishi has advanced master-class training on the use of the blunt-tip cannula for dermal filler injections. Using a blunt-tip microcannula is a safer and more flexible alternative for administering dermal filler with minimal chance of bruising.

Dermal Fillers Q & A

Q: What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

A: Dermal fillers are a great option for facial rejuvenation without the need of surgery. They are great for erasing lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles form when aging skin begins to sag. Fillers can plump thin lips, lift tired cheeks, improve hollowness under the eyes, and ultimately deliver natural-looking results.

Q: Will there be a downtime with dermal filler treatment?

A: Some bruising and swelling can occur with dermal filler injections depending on the site of injection. However, our experienced team at Brandywine Med Spa will provide anti-bruising cream and guide you on how to minimize the risks of bruising and swelling so that your treatment is the best experience possible!

We also recommend stopping any blood thinners and vitamins a few days prior to dermal filler injections to avoid any bruising. Before your Botox treatment, you should also avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours.

Q: What are the different types of dermal fillers?

A: Within each of the product lines for Restylane and Juvederm are specific fillers that are best to treat specific concerns. In the Juvederm line, there is Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Vollure, Volbella, Voluma and Volux. In the Restylane line, there is Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Defyne and Refyne. All of these fillers have special qualities and the right filler will be chosen to give you the optimal results and longevity. Dr. Uzma is experienced with all of these fillers and she will discuss your options and how the right filler will work best for you. She will review hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, as well as alternative choices such as Sculptra or Radiesse. You will understand fillers much more after your consultation and feel confident in your filler treatment!

Q: What is the difference between Botox and Dermal fillers?

A: Botox relaxes muscles, and dermal fillers “fill” or smooth lines and folds. They can both be used to treat wrinkles and lines, but they achieve results differently.

Botox is a great option for dynamic wrinkles that appear with facial movements whereas dermal fillers can be used to improve static lines in certain areas of the face.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: The results of dermal fillers are instant and can last up to 8-12 months. We also offer RHA fillers, a.k.a Resilient Hyaluronic Acid that may last for approximately 15- 18 months.

Dermal fillers also stimulate natural collagen stimulation and give the appearance of much smoother skin. After a few sessions, the results typically last longer and longer.
