Zi Derma Fillers
Also known as dermal fillers and soft tissue fillers. Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck, and hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures because they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time.
Zi Derma Fillers in Details
Fillers are administered with a syringe to various areas on the face and head, including around the eyes, along the jaw, around the lips and in the forehead. The number, location and depth of the injections depend largely on the type of dermal fillers used and the desired results.
Some fillers contain a local anesthetic like lidocaine to enhance comfort during injection. Numbing cream may also be used.
There are three types of fillers commonly used: temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are temporary, while other types of fillers offer longer-lasting results.

Based on your goals, physical characteristics and many years of training and experience, the surgeon will share recommendations and information with you, including:
- Filler injection recommendations that will give you the best outcome.
- The outcomes that you can anticipate.
- Your financial investment in the procedure.
- Associated risks and complications.
- What is needed to prepare for filler injections.

During the procedure
Our surgeon will provide thorough pre-treatment instructions and answer any questions you may have. In the weeks before your injections, you’ll be asked to refrain from taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, and any other medications that could cause bruising. Be sure to inform your physician of any medicines you are taking.
If you have a history of cold sores, your surgeon may recommend taking Valtrex as a precaution. Your doctor may ask you to stop smoking before the procedure. Regardless of the type of procedure to be performed, hydration is very important before and after treatment for safe recovery.
After the procedure:
You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after this treatment.
You will likely see the results of your injections immediately following the procedure, though it’s not uncommon for patients to experience swelling or minimal bruising in the area of the injection site.
Our physician may give you an ice pack or cold compress to help stem swelling. The period of swelling will depend largely on the type of soft tissue filler you received, though most swelling, bruising, and redness should dissipate within one week to ten days.
The length of results from your dermal fillers is dependent on the type of injection you received:
- Collagen-Based Fillers: Results will last from two to four months.
- Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers: Results vary, though results of most common brands will last six to twelve months.
- Semi-Permanent Fillers: Results will last between twelve and eighteen months.
- Permanent Fillers: Results are typically still visible after five or more years.
