Dermal Fillers Q&A

Tristan E. Bickman, MD

Why am I losing facial volume?

As you get older, your body slows down its production of collagen due to biological changes in your body, including hormone fluctuations common with aging.


As a result, your skin becomes looser, and wrinkles and fine lines can appear on your face, especially around the areas involved in common facial movements, like smiling and squinting.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that helps restore facial volume and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines.


Dr. Bickman creates a custom treatment plan that targets specific areas of your face that have lost volume due to aging. You can enhance a number of facial features using dermal fillers, including:


  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Around the nose
  • Around the mouth


Fillers can help smooth out wrinkles and reduce the visibility of lines and creases without the need for incisions or surgery.

Are dermal fillers safe?

The materials used in dermal fillers, including hyaluronic acid, are safe for treating a variety of skin flaws. By creating an individual treatment plan to address your needs, Dr. Bickman can ensure that your results always look natural and that you never look overdone.


Dermal fillers are a safe alternative to more invasive procedures, like facelifts, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They also offer long-lasting benefits, with many of the popular fillers lasting several months at a time.


You can also receive dermal fillers for maintaining your youthful looks as you continue to age.

What can I expect during a dermal filler treatment?

Dr. Bickman first reviews your medical history and evaluates your skin to determine if dermal fillers are a good option for treatment. She discusses your cosmetic goals and may recommend certain fillers to address specific issues, like crow’s feet or thin lips.


To keep you comfortable during your injections, Dr. Bickman can apply a topical numbing cream before performing the treatment.


You can see immediate results after your procedure, with younger-looking, firmer skin. Dr. Bickman can discuss how long you can expect results to last based on your treatment.


After dermal filler injections, you can go back to work or your other activities without limitations, and no one will know you’ve had injections.
