Dermal Fillers

An interview with Rex A. Yannis, MD, supervising physician at center for facial rejuvenation


What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers, also called injectable fillers and soft-tissue fillers, are aesthetic products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help add volume and shape a natural, youthful facial appearance. They can add fullness back to age lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines, and more.


How do you develop a dermal filler plan for each client?

We are intensely focused on being attentive to our clients’ needs and well-being, and when a client visits us, they have our undivided attention. We ask our client if there are particular areas of concern, then assess her/his facial features. Our caring staff discusses treatment options to achieve the results desired.


How do you choose the right filler for your clients?

Because genetics, as well as a client’s daily activities, can impact results, we thoroughly screen each client to determine which filler to use. For example, athletic clients tend to metabolize hyaluronic acid fillers at a higher rate than non-athletic clients.


How long does it take to recover from the procedure?

There is little to no down time required for most of our non-surgical procedures. In the case of fillers, some swelling or bruising may occur, although we offer complimentary treatments to minimize bruising if needed.


How do you follow up with your patients after a dermal filler procedure?

Every client is called the day following their injection to check in. Clients are scheduled for a follow-up visit within 10-14 days of the original appointment.
