Dermal Fillers

As a certified nurse practitioner with Premier Physicians, Seana Rutherford treats patients in Fairview Park, Ohio. Seana Rutherford also offers injectable cosmetic filler treatments, such as Juvederm, for patients interested in improving their appearance.

Patients with mildly pitted or scarred skin or signs of aging, such as wrinkles, may benefit cosmetically from dermal filler injections. Marketed under brand names that include Juvederm and Captique, the products work by filling areas beneath the skin, which become puffed up and out. This helps smooth the appearance of the skin.

Healthcare providers perform filler injections on an outpatient basis. The procedure takes less than 15 minutes. First, the area of the skin is numbed where the filler will be injected. Then, the filler is injected beneath the skin. 

Depending on the type of filler, results may last for months or even years. In the use of Juvederm, for instance, results tend to last up to a year.
