  • FAQS

    How Dermal Fillers work?

    As we age, we start to lose volume in certain areas of the face which can make us look tired and sunken. This may be caused by the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin. Unlike wrinkles which might require muscle relaxants (Botox ) to soften them, facial volume and folds may require a dermal filler to help potentially improve the appearance of the area.

    Are dermal fillers safe?

    Dermal fillers are based on a substance that occurs naturally in your body – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. Our selection of hyaluronic acid fillers may offer instant, natural-looking results to smooth the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles.

    How does your body eliminate fillers?

    Your body naturally metabolizes hyaluronic acid fillers.

    How do I know if this is the right dermal filler for me?

    We offer complimentary consultations with Dr. Swapna Masurkar so that you can discuss any questions and concerns you may have. All our consultations are confidential. Together, you and Dr. Masurkar will review your skincare and beauty goals and determine which filler is the right choice for you.

    Can I have my treatment on the same day as my consultation?

    Yes! If you would like to move forward with a treatment after your consultation, we can treat you during the same day. We do recommend considering this when booking your appointment to ensure that we have enough time allotted for both treatment and consultation.

    How long does the procedure take?

    Dermal filler procedures last for approximately fifteen to thirty minutes.

    How long does Dermal Filler last?

    Dermal Filler treatments last from 9 months up to 18 months.

    How much do dermal fillers cost?

    The cost of dermal fillers will vary from client to client, as every individual has different skincare and beauty goals. Furthermore, everyone has a unique facial structure and will require a varied amount. Therefore we offer complimentary consultations– so that Dr. Swapna Masurkar can assess you and offer you her professional opinion as to how much you’ll need.

    Can I consume alcohol near the time of my appointment?

    We recommend that you avoid medications that prolong bleeding for up to two days before your appointment. You should avoid aspirin and alcoholic beverages and be sure to ask if you should refrain from any other routines before treatment.

    What can I expect during my treatment?

    Right before treatment, Dr. Swapna Masurkar will cleanse the injection site and offer you a numbing agent to reduce any discomfort you may otherwise experience. Mild discomfort may be experienced, but overall, it is not a painful process. The amount of filler required for your individual treatment will be administered through a needle or cannula needle into the injection site. Dr. Masurkar will then smooth out the filler once it has been injected below the dermis, to ensure that the filler has been properly placed into the correct areas.

    Why do you use cannula needles?

    Dr. Swapna Masurkar use Cannula needles to administer fillers to minimize bruising and swelling after treatment. Cannula needles are preferred over sharp tipped needles, as often, sharp tipped needles result in more discomfort during treatments and bruising after treatment.

    What can I expect after my treatment?

    After the treatment is concluded, you may experience slight tenderness, temporary redness, swelling, and in 10 percent of cases, slight bruising. These symptoms are usually mild, and typically ice packs help to relieve swelling and discomfort. We offer complimentary follow-up appointments so that you can sit in and discuss your results to ensure your satisfaction.
