What are Dermal Fillers?
After weight loss or with age, Miami, FL men and women may notice facial volume loss and wrinkles beginning to form on their face. In such instances, some people choose to receive dermal fillers to replenish lost facial volume. Fillers are a great minimally invasive alternative for our patients who want to smooth fine lines, sagging skin, and/or wrinkles. They can also be added to other cosmetic procedures to provide results similar to a traditional facelift without surgery, the risk of scarring, or the downtime. To learn if dermal fillers are right for you, we encourage you to visit Brickell Cosmetic Center to help you create a youthful appearance.
Dermal Fillers Reviews
"I’ve been going to the Brickell Cosmetic centre for over a year now for Botox and fillers and the results are not only incredible but I always have such a great experience. The staff is super attentive and professional. Highly recommend!"- M.B. / Google / Sep 16, 2020
"Service is great! i can't tell yet the final results of my fillers because i did them 2 days ago and i'm not supposed to see the final results until 2 weeks but so far so good. I felt cero pain and i had no bruising at all. The statistician was very nice and knowledgeable, she explained everything perfectly and even made space to do my fillers because mine was only a consultation appointment. I'm waiting 2 weeks to see my final results but in case i need more i would definitely come back to this place."- M. / Google / Mar 31, 2020
"First of all place feels like a surgical center. Clean, sterilized. Everything white. One of the cleanest facilities I’ve ever seen. I prefer the drs who oversell you on things. Most do not. Bc it can be uncomfortable. The dr is female, ex navy, kind as is her PA or nurse. Best duo in the Miami area I have been here four years seen people with no degrees, degrees in other things. I got very lucky because I’ve learned reviews from outside sources are not true. I was paying 300/400 at another facility that was beginning to look dirty. The doctor was not a dr and was placing the Botox in the incorrect places. I love the doctor the professionalism of the staff, and for the work she does yes I’m a New Yorker so I expect to pay but she still is very reasonable and they gave me for free all the products i needed for my aftercare. Not tiny little samples, but full size and top of the line products. My place now, I’m thrilled. Next I want to tackle my face and I fully trust her opinion. Once you see her and her presentation flawless but down to earth. And I’m not a normal gal with normal anything they have never made me feel bad about myself. And if you only speak English like me they do speak English. Sometimes I would get even more self conscious not understanding what they were saying. I will not be seeing my Park Ave South’s medi center in December. I don’t need too ever again. Love you ladies."- M.D. / Yelp / Nov 18, 2020
"We’ve been thinking about Botox and fillers for so long. My wife and I saved our pennies, did our research and landed in BCC. I’m so happy we did! The consultation exceeded my expectations. Dr. Dozier’s tact, professionalism and humor made the whole experience so comfortable. She answered our 27,000 questions and was incredibly thorough. The staff in the front is just as professional, humble, INSERT ALL THE POSITIVE ADJECTIVES EVER. It should be noted that you can eat off of every single surface in this office. Incredibly clean/sanitary. Two weeks after our consultation we had our plump. That on its own deserves it own review. When I thought things couldn’t get better they did. You feel like you’re in a dream (mind you they’re sticking needles in your face but i stand by what I say). They have defined what it is to "take care" of someone. My wife and I were first timers and they were so comforting. From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left it was a spa like experience. I can’t thank the staff, nurse and doctor enough. When i saw my lips I became super emotional. They looked phenomenal. It was worth every single penny. The procedure was not painful AT ALL. I don’t consider myself to have a high pain tolerance but they take EXTRA care and make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the whole procedure. Going to a dermatologist makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are on the ledge about going through with this I beg you to give this place a shot. I’m a nervous rat and someway, some how they managed to make an anxiety ridden experience a relaxing one. Forever grateful. I will update my review with a before and after once I’m healed and ready to go. Oh, and did i mention you can call and text them whenever after your procedure for questions/ concerns ANYTHING. Like I said, they take care of you. Oh and my wife looks like she did when we met 7 years ago. I might even say better. Hope she doesn’t read this."- M.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2021
"Dr. Dozier and her team at Brickell Cosmetics Center are absolutely amazing. The staff is friendly, their office is beautiful and they are very knowledgeable and professional with everything they do. Being in my 30s I visited Dr. Dozier for the first time to do botox as well as lip fillers. She explained everything to me throughly, answered any questions I had and really took the time to listen to all my concerns as well as what I was really working for. Natural for me is my number 1 goal. I was so nervous! Dr. Dozier did a phenomenal job. In all honestly, the Botox has made my wrinkles go away and my skin look amazing, and my lip fillers are absolutely natural. My lips are even, beautiful and look naturally plumped. I was blown away! Also suffering from rosacea for many years my skin has always been my top priority. My hydrafacials as well as the routine Dr. Dozier has me on has worked immensely. I have gone too many dermatologists through out the years. Not only is Dr. Dozier highly skilled in skin issues but she has an amazing eye for cosmetic procedures. Thank you Dr.Dozier and staff for making me feel wonderful and helping me achieve my natural beauty!"- N.T. / Google / Jan 26, 2023
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
Volume loss and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn't mean you have to accept them. Dermal fillers help restore volume and diminish the appearance of wrinkles for a youthful look. Some benefits of fillers include:
- Immediate results: You will see an improvement in your appearance as soon as the filler is injected.
- Minimal downtime: There is little to no recovery time required after receiving dermal fillers.
- Customizable: The amount of filler used can be personalized to meet your individual needs and goals.
- Long-lasting: Results vary but can last up to a year with the proper care and attention.
Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?
Patients should undergo a consultation with an expert injector to see if dermal fillers are the best way to achieve their desired look. Ideal candidates for fillers are adults who want to smooth away wrinkles and add volume to sunken or hollow areas. Please inform our team about any allergies that may interfere with your procedure. Those with active skin infections should also wait until their condition has cleared before receiving treatment.
What Can I Expect from My Dermal Fillers?
Before your dermal filler injections, you'll discuss your cosmetic goals with the Doctor, and together, determine what product will best deliver them. Injectable fillers are done as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. At the time of your procedure, we will use a topical numbing cream as an anesthetic to make the injections as comfortable as possible. Slowly and meticulously, the filler will be injected into your skin through a very fine needle. After your procedure, you can get right back to everyday life. You will likely experience swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms will dissipate within a couple of days. Results can last from a few months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the placement of the injection. Touch-ups may be needed periodically to optimize results. The fillers we offer are:
- Restylane®: This is used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the mid-face.
- JUVÉDERM®: JUVÉDERM is typically used to plump up the lips and address wrinkles and folds that occur around the nose and mouth.
- RADIESSE®: RADIESSE is the only FDA-approved filler that causes calcium-microspheres to stimulate collagen growth and smooth lines and wrinkles for up to one year.
- Sculptra®: Sculptra helps reduce lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen growth.
Dermal Filler FAQ
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The type of dermal filler used on you will depend on which area(s) is being treated as well as your desired outcome. Depending on whether you want to diminish wrinkles or achieve fuller, plumper lips, your injector will talk with you about your concerns prior to recommending the best filler for optimal results. Since there are so many different types of fillers available, it may be difficult to choose which is ideal for your needs, but we work hard to make sure you get a natural-looking, rejuvenated look.
How long will the results last?
How long your results last will be dependent on the type of filler used and the area(s) treated. In some people, results may be visible for a year, while some patients might want another treatment after a couple of months. Follow-up treatments are available at our practice in order to maintain your improvements.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can improve signs of aging by either adding volume or smoothing static lines. Fillers can be injected into mild to moderate parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. They can also add volume to your lips and cheeks.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a professional. Though there is always a risk of side effects with cosmetic treatment, these reactions are usually temporary and should subside within a few days. In rare cases, some people may experience an allergic reaction or a complication that requires medical attention.
Do dermal fillers produce natural outcomes?
Our team members at Brickell Cosmetic Center have years of experience in delivering natural-looking results with dermal fillers. We use the latest techniques and products to ensure that you get a subtle, yet beautiful enhancement. Remember to follow any pre- and post-care instructions given by your injector. Doing so will help you achieve the best results.
How do I prepare for my dermal filler appointment?
Prior to your treatment, it's important to discuss any medical conditions or medications with our team. You should also avoid taking ibuprofen and other blood-thinning medicines a few days before your appointment to minimize your risk of bruising. Our Miami, FL staff will provide any additional pre-treatment instructions.
