What are Injectable dermal Fillers?
Wrinkle fillers (or simply fillers) can help replenish lost facial volume. The complexion can lose volume for a variety of reasons. However, skin volume loss is caused mostly by age and significant weight loss. The procedure works by injecting liquefied dermal fillers beneath the skin, which improves the skin's volume. Injectable fillers are a promising, nonsurgical alternative for patients who want to smooth fine lines, reduce sagging skin and wrinkles, and create a younger-looking complexion. We can also combine dermal fillers with other cosmetic treatments to enhance your results. Without the recovery and expense of a facelift, dermal fillers can help you achieve younger-looking skin. To determine which products work best for you, we encourage you to visit New Orleans Plastic Surgery and schedule an appointment with Dr. Michelle Eagan.

Injectable Dermal Fillers Reviews
"I went to Dr.Eagan for her to do a overall look at my face and give her expertise on what I should or shouldn’t get done. As I aged I have noticed my cheeks have been sagging in addition to smile lines creasing, that I absolutely hate. Dr. Eagan recommended getting cheek fillers (sorry I do not know the name) the cheek fillers would help with my cheeks not sagging also with the smile line creasing in addition to, other problems that I dislike regarding my face when it comes to aging. Given that information I decided not to get it done due to the down time of me not being able to workout. I was 3 weeks away from a bodybuilding competition and it was a must for me to workout every day sometimes twice a day. Therefore, instead of getting my cheeks done that day, I did get lip fillers in which I LOVE my lips 🤗 this was my second time getting my lips done 1st time with Dr.Eagan and she did an amazing job. She is very professional, kind, understanding, and not money hungry. You can build up points where different in office procedures are discounted. I will be going back sometime in the summer to get my cheek fillers before I start another bodybuilding competition prep. I also got my smile lines filled however, it really didn’t make to big of a difference. Dr. Eagan did say just wait save the money you are going to spin for the smile line filler because the cheek filler will help with that. But being me I didn’t listen, that’s why I said she is not money hungry and she really gives you her professional opinion. And give you the best bang for your hard working money. Thank you Dr. Eagan will be seeing you soon."- H.T. / Google / May 02, 2021
"Absolutely best plastic surgeon on the south shore. Well run office, excellent pre-visit communication and I felt important. Dr. Eagan listened to me and was easy to talk to. First time Botox and filler client; painless and professional. I will return."- J.G. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2021
"Went to Dr.Eagan for lip fillers and she made me feel so comfortable and loved how they came out. Definitely will be going back!"- J.H. / Google / Feb 22, 2021
"I had a few friends recommend Dr. Eagan to me. When I tell you I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and CRIED I mean it. I feel like a totally new person. I feel HOT and like I can take on the world. I got in my car, put on some music rolled down my windows and just sang which is so unlike me but how much better I feel about myself has changed everything. She was so sweet and gentle. I was really nervous walking in and she explained everything so patiently. I won’t be going to anyone else ever. I love love love my new lips and my new attitude."- K.B. / Google / Mar 19, 2021
"I first went to Dr. Eagon for under eye filler and a consultation for a breast augmentation and lift. The moment I meet Dr. Eagon she was the sweetest plastic surgeon I have ever meet. Previously I went to many plastic surgeons for consults and their personalities are not comparable to Dr. Eagon. After the filler was placed and my consultation was complete I knew she was the one! She was extremely thorough in the consultation and made me feel so comfortable. After the consultation I had my preop appointment and being a mom, I had to bring my kids. She was even more thorough at that appointment with a 3 year old present. She wasn’t even phased by his disruption and was so kind to my kids. Her receptionist was amazing through the entire process, as well. Now 2 weeks post op I love my results. I loved my results 2 days post surgery. Did I mention she called me the night I had surgery to call and check on me! That’s impressive. If your looking for a plastic surgeon I can’t recommend her enough. I encounter many physicians on a daily basis at work and I can tell you she is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met, and her work is amazing!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
Are Injectable Dermal Fillers For You?
If you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift, you might be an ideal candidate for injectable dermal fillers. Additionally, patients with significant signs of aging, or who have recently lost a large amount of weight, may have skin that appears hollow or uneven. This makes them great candidates for injectable fillers. Dermal filler treatments are a great alternative for patients who do not want to deal with scars, which commonly occur after a surgical facelift.
How Are Filler Injections Performed?
Before your treatment, Dr. Eagan will listen to your cosmetic concerns and design a treatment plan. The treatment plan will outline which dermal filler products work best for you. At the beginning of your procedure, Dr. Eagan will apply a topical numbing cream to help you remain comfortable. Next, she will mark the injection sites and administer the dermal filler with a thin needle. She will inject the filler until reaching your desired results. Depending on your preference, we may use half or an entire syringe.
What Should I Expect After Dermal Filler Injections?
After your treatment, you can resume your everyday activities. Usually, your dermal filler appointments last about 15 – 30 minutes. Right after the treatment and for the next few days, you will experience some swelling and bruising. However, these symptoms will subside on their own. Depending on the type of filler and the treatment area, your results can last from a few months to a year. To maintain your results, Dr. Eagan will provide information about scheduling follow-up appointments at our New Orleans, LA practice.
How much do injectable fillers cost?
The cost of a dermal filler treatment depends on the product and the amount we use. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will create a customized treatment plan that matches your needs. Once she designs a custom treatment plan, our team can discuss the estimated cost and any specials we have.
Injectable Dermal Fillers FAQ
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The type of filler selected for your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your wanted result. Based on whether you want to address fine lines or you want to create fuller lips, your injector will ask about your concerns before determining the best filler for optimal results. With so many types of fillers available, it may be difficult to pick which one is ideal for you, so our team of aesthetic professionals helps to ensure you get a result you love.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, like BOTOX®, treats fine lines and wrinkles (especially in the forehead and near the eyes) by reducing the movement of the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers restore volume to your face to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and some scars. Injectable fillers can also be used to add more volume to your lips and cheeks and rejuvenate the hands.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be based on what brand(s) is used and the area(s) treated. For some people, results may be visible for a year, whereas some patients may need another treatment after a couple of months. Touch-up injections can be performed at our practice in order to maintain your improvements.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can address signs of aging in your face by either adding volume or smoothing static lines. Dermal fillers can be injected into marionette lines, parentheses lines, as well as corner lines near your mouth and nose. Additionally, they can add volume to your lips and cheeks.
How much do injectable fillers cost?
Costs for a wrinkle filler treatment will vary depending on the type of filler and the amount used to match your goals.

After this, your injector will be able to provide you with an estimated cost, which will include any current specials we are offering.
Are dermal fillers painful?
Pain is usually minimal, especially when administered by the experts at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Many fillers contain a numbing agent, and topical anesthetic creams can be applied to further reduce discomfort.
