Tulsa Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to smooth wrinkles and lines and add volume to your skin. In Tulsa, Dr. Cha offers dermal fillers to rejuvenate and refresh your face.
What Is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is an injectable gel-like solution that softens facial lines and creases. Hyaluronic acid and Poly-L-lactic acid are two types of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a water-retaining substance that is already a part of our skin. Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic substance commonly used for medical purposes. Some dermal fillers contain a mild anesthetic to increase your comfort during treatment.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Before treatment begins, you will have a consultation with Dr. Cha to discuss your aesthetic goals. He will review your medical and prescription histories, explain your treatment options, and discuss the results you can expect.
During the 20-minute treatment, Dr. Cha will complete these steps:
- Cleanse your skin and numb the injection areas
- Mark the injection sites
- Perform quick, tiny injections with precise amounts of dermal filler into the treatment areas
- Cleanse your skin
You should notice results immediately. You may feel some discomfort, but if you do, it will be mild and only last a few days. Occasionally people experience mild bruising, redness, or itching.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
The results from dermal fillers last six to 24 months, depending on the product used, the target areas, and each patient. You can repeat treatment to maintain the results.
