Dermal Fillers: what to expect

The dermal filler process is simple and can be completed in an hour or less. Dr. Presswood is certified in Comfortox needles, the smallest and easiest to use for these type of injections. Once the area to be treated is chosen and your skin is cleaned, we will apply a topical anesthetic to make the process as painless as possible. Most patients experience only a slight pinching sensation where the injections are placed. Dr. Presswood will massage the area after injecting the fillers to ensure a smooth, even result in and around the injection site.
