Injectable Dermal Fillers are gels made from naturally occurring substances. Dermal Fillers are injected just under the skin, in order to add volume and correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, acne scars and dark or puffy under-eyes. Dermal Fillers are also commonly used to give a plump appearance to the lips.
Dr. Zacharia’s practice uses one of the global leading cosmetics filler brands. Suitability for Dermal Fillers will be assessed during an initial consultation.

When receiving dermal fillers, you should expect a minimally invasive procedure typically completed within an hour. After an initial consultation, your injector will clean the treatment area and might apply a topical anesthetic to mitigate discomfort. The filler is then injected beneath the skin to add volume, smooth lines, or enhance facial contours. Post-procedure, mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site are common but usually subside within a few days. You’re generally able to return to daily activities immediately, though strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24-48 hours. Remember, individual experiences with dermal fillers can vary based on the type of filler used and personal health factors.
Any male and female adult can have fillers injections. Those looking for fast, non-surgical anti-wrinkle procedures to plump up deep facial lines and who want a solution with no, or very limited recovery time, are ideal candidates.
Any medications or supplements taken should be disclosed to the physician, as they may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection sites.
Pregnant or nursing women are not eligible for Dermal Filler Injections. Also, any person with an infection near the injection site should postpone treatment until the infection is resolved. Furthermore, there is a greatly increased risk of serious side effects in patients with any pre-existing neuromuscular disorder.
