How Long Does It Take for Dermal Fillers to Settle?

Aging can lead to a loss of facial volume and the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can undo these signs of aging for youthful, natural-looking results. Dermal fillers can plump deep lines and restore volume to areas like the cheeks and lips. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular injectable treatment for volume restoration and smoothing lines and wrinkles. They use a wide range of materials to achieve their results, and all are extremely safe. Dr. Tenley Lawton and her team offer Juvederm® fillers. This widely used family of fillers offers a range of products to address many facial concerns.

How Do Juvederm® Dermal Fillers Work?

Juvederm® dermal fillers use a molecule called hyaluronic acid to add facial volume. Popular in skin care products, hyaluronic acid holds moisture and hydrates skin. Juvederm® fillers use different arrangements of this molecule to achieve different results. When injected, dermal fillers enhance volume to lift and soften lines and wrinkles. 

How Long Does it Take for Dermal Fillers to Settle?

Dermal filler results usually look natural from the first day, but you may have minor swelling for a day or two. During the first few days, your injected filler could move out of position, so your injector will often recommend that you limit exercise and massaging your face. Fillers are generally very stable. You may notice your results improving as your filler settles in. The settling process can take a few weeks
