What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable products that are used to add volume to the skin. This can be for the purposes of creating a more youthful look or subtly augmenting areas of the face without requiring surgery. At Falcon Plastic Surgery, we offer Allergan products including the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This includes a range of hyaluronic acid fillers designed specifically to be effective in various areas of the face. Your options include:
- Juvéderm Volbella XC
- Juvéderm Ultra XC
- Juvéderm XC
- Juvéderm Vollure XC
- Juvéderm Voluma XC
In addition to these hyaluronic acid fillers, Allergan also produces an injectable known as Kybella. Kybella is a unique product designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin by destroying fat cells in the area once injected. The product uses deoxycholic acid as its main ingredient and can improve the look of the profile and jawline by non-surgically removing fat. To determine which dermal filler is best for you, visit Dr. Falcon at our Natrona Heights office, which is located 20 miles from Downtown Pittsburgh and 15 miles from Fox Chapel.
Am I a Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Most patients who have concerns about signs of aging or who wish to change the appearance of areas like the lips, cheeks, or chin make good candidates for injectables. Products like Volbella or Juvéderm Ultra XC can be used to add fullness to the lips, creating a natural-looking result with improved balance and symmetry. Juvéderm XC or Vollure can be used to reduce lines and wrinkles by restoring youthful volume to the face, especially for areas like nasolabial folds. Finally, Voluma can be used to restore a lifted, youthful appearance in the cheeks or to shape areas like the chin.

Before choosing dermal fillers, Dr. Falcon will examine the areas you are concerned about to make sure that this is the best treatment option for you. He will also review your health history to make sure that you can safely move forward with injections. Typically, patients can receive their injections during the same appointment as their consultation, assuming they do not have health conditions that would cause concern.
Recovery After Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal filler injections require no downtime. You may notice some redness, slight swelling, or tenderness at the injection site, but can otherwise go about your day as normal. Typically, it is recommended that you avoid exercise or other types of strenuous activity for about 24 hours after your dermal filler appointment to avoid bleeding or bruising. Results can be seen immediately despite some swelling that should quickly dissipate.
Dermal filler results are not permanent. To keep up your results, you can receive maintenance injections. Fillers can last anywhere from about six months to two years depending on the product and injection site.
