As you age, the shape of your face changes. Your skin becomes loose and wrinkled, your cheeks become sunken, and your lips get thinner. Facial fillers offered at Radiance MedSpa DC in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. and Columbia, MD, can restore the fullness to your face that it lost over time, making you look young without appearing frozen. To find out how facial fillers can reverse your most prominent signs of aging, call our office or schedule an appointment online at Radiance MedSpa DC today.

What are facial fillers?

As time passes, your face slowly loses its natural volume and structure. While some people enjoy the wise, mature look that they have after aging, others prefer youthful plumpness. Facial fillers allow you to keep a younger look by filling in the areas that have lost volume.

At Radiance MedSpa DC, we have several types of dermal filler. Our long term filler is Bellafill® injectable dermal filler to give you your desired appearance. Unlike its competitors, Bellafill’s results last for up to five years. Bellafill injections have a base of collagen gel with microspheres suspended in it. Once it is injected, the microspheres provide a structure for your body’s natural collagen to develop around. Collagen is a substance that your body produces to give your skin structure.

What can facial fillers do for me?

Facial fillers today are more versatile than ever before, yielding amazing, natural-looking results. They can:

  • Smooth lines around your nose and mouth
  • Restore volume to sunken cheeks
  • Plump your lips
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Smooth lip lines
  • Treat acne scars

You read that last one right — facial fillers can be used to smooth the acne scars that you’ve had since youth! If you have other targets for facial fillers, our highly experienced clinicians can determine if facial fillers are your best option or guide you to a more fitting treatment.




Are facial fillers safe?

Facial filler products are highly tested before being FDA-approved, so they’re generally safe for use. Like any minimally invasive treatment, there are a few side effects to be aware of before you commit to the injections. Side effects include:

  • Facial asymmetry
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Bruising

If you experience side effects, they typically subside within seven to 14 days. When dermal fillers are administered by an experienced medical professional, more serious side effects like infection are extremely rare. If you have additional concerns, your clinician can answer all of your questions during the initial consultation.

If you struggle to embrace the signs of aging in your appearance, give dermal fillers a try. To find out if dermal fillers are right for you, call or schedule an appointment online at Radiance MedSpa DC.
