What are dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are often injected to replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a number of reasons, but significant weight loss and age are the leading causes. This treatment works by injecting a liquid (the dermal filler) under the surface of the skin to fill sunken or hollowed areas. Injectable fillers are a promising, minimally invasive option for Peoria, AZ men and women wanting to smooth sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines to create a younger-looking face. They can also be incorporated into other aesthetic services to reveal the results of a traditional facelift without going under the knife, the presence of scars, and the associated downtime that follows. There are many different types of fillers that could help meet the requests and desires of each patient, including JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, Restylane®, and Sculptra®. To determine which products are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Lynch Vein & Aesthetics where Dr. Matthew Lynch can help you make this decision.

"Dr. Lynch is great with acne issues. I have struggled with cystic acne for all of my adult life. It has been painful and leaves awful scaring on my face. I did not feel comfortable going out without make up on. I have tried various treatments both orally and topical. Dr. Lynch came up with a treatment plan for me. He was up front and informative as to what I could expect and what I would experience. After my first treatment with Dr. Lynch, I noticed a difference in my acne. It was less painful and less red the next day and even more less going forward. By the third visit I felt comfortable and confident in going out without make up on. I still feel that way and with three kids and a baby, no make up means more free time. Thank you Dr. Lynch!"- A.K. / Google / Sep 23, 2022

Am I a good Candidate?
The best candidates for dermal fillers would be anyone looking to minimize the presence of wrinkles and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift. Typically, those who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes often make them ideal for injectable fillers. This treatment is also a great option for those who are not comfortable with the scars that can result from a surgical facelift.
How do dermal fillers work?
Before your injection, Dr. Lynch will consult with you to learn more about your cosmetic goals and decide what product may best produce them. For the actual procedure, Dr. Lynch will apply numbing cream as a local anesthetic to minimize the discomfort of the injections. Dr. Lynch will use his experience to determine the amount of filler that is needed and will gradually and evenly inject it via a very fine needle. Keeping the desired result in mind, either a portion or an entire syringe could be used during the procedure.
Different fillers can be used to correct different problems. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we use:
VERSA: A line of fillers designed to increase volume in the lips, smooth lines, or contour cheeks.
RADIESSE: Smooths moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands.
Restylane: Alleviates facial wrinkles and folds, enhances lips, improves the lines around the mouth, lifts and plumps the cheeks, and reverses volume loss in the back of the hands.
Sculptra: Restores volume in the face by promoting the skin's natural production of collagen.
What should I Expect after?
This procedure can be completed in our Peoria, AZ office quickly and with very few risks. Due to the numbing agents, the process is usually very tolerable pain-wise and does not require downtime. You can expect swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms will fade away within a few short days. Results typically last from a few months to a year based on the product and the area of injection. To maintain optimal results, Dr. Lynch may recommend touch-ups.
Dermal filler FAQ
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective option for many people who want to improve their appearance. There are a few potential risks associated with injections, but these are generally rare and can be avoided when working with someone like Dr. Lynch. Fillers should only be administered by a qualified professional with experience performing injectable treatments.
Do dermal fillers hurt?
The majority of patients report little to no pain during dermal filler injections. A small needle is used for treatment, and many types of fillers contain a numbing agent that helps patients feel at ease. Please inform a team member at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics if you are concerned about pain or have anxiety about needles. We can ensure your comfort.
Will I have natural results?
Your individual results depend on the specific dermal filler used as well as your individual goals in Peoria, AZ. Dr. Lynch will help choose the best option during a consultation and provide an estimate of what to expect. Our goal is always to give patients natural-looking outcomes that improve their appearance without looking fake or overdone.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The type of filler for your treatment will depend on which area(s) are being treated and your desired outcomes. Based on whether you would like to improve fine lines or you want to get plumper lips, your injector will listen to your goals before determining the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. Since there are so many types of fillers, it can be difficult to choose the one best for your needs and goals. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we work hard to make sure you get natural-looking results and a rejuvenated look.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers address lines and wrinkles (particularly in the forehead and near the eyes) by limiting the movement of facial muscles. Fillers restore volume to your face by filling in wrinkles, fine lines, and some scars. Injectable fillers can also be used to create fuller cheeks and lips or rejuvenate the hands.
