How do dermal fillers work?
Restylane and Versa are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that provides hydration and volume to the skin. Restylane and Versa's gel is injected into the skin, where it integrates with the existing hyaluronic acid, adding volume and smoothing wrinkles and lines. It attracts and retains moisture, giving the skin a plumper and youthful appearance.

How long will it take for me to see results from dermal fillers?
Results from dermal fillers are often immediate. Immediately following the injections, you will notice a visible improvement in the treated areas. However, it's important to keep in mind that there may be minor swelling or bruising initially, which typically subsides within a few days.
Do dermal fillers have any side effects?
Minor side effects, including redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site are common but temporary. Serious dermal filler complications are rare but may include infection, allergic reactions, or vascular complications. Our experienced providers at Astria Aesthetics take necessary precautions to minimize the risk of complications.
Is it possible to combine dermal fillers with other treatments?
Dermal fillers can be combined with other aesthetic treatments, such as neurotoxin injections or skin rejuvenation procedures, to enhance overall results. Your provider will assess your specific needs and recommend a course of action to reach your aesthetic goals.
How long do dermal filler results last?
The longevity of dermal filler results varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used, the treated area, and individual factors. Generally, results can last from several months to over a year. Regular maintenance treatments can help maintain and prolong the desired outcome.
