Dermal Fillers: Are You a Good Candidate?
Did you know that the visible signs of aging are linked to volume loss of our facial tissue? When there is a decrease in volume and elasticity over time, it leads to wrinkles, sagging skin, and visibly etched lines on the face. Getting injectable dermal fillers will help smooth lines, improve hollow cheeks/eyes, plump lips, and give you a more youthful looking appearance! Read on to learn more and find out if you are the right candidate for dermal filler treatment.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected directly under the skin. They are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is found in the body and keeps skin hydrated and volumized. Dermal fillers are perfect for those looking to help with age-related issues including smoothing under eye circles, lifting cheek bones, smoothing lip lines, and replacing soft-tissue volume loss. They will restore the skin to a more youthful look without having to get any expensive cosmetic surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You are a good fit for dermal fillers if you have fine lines and wrinkles and are seeking a more youthful look to your skin. Dermal fillers work by plumping the skin, filling in the lines and wrinkles, and smoothing out the skin throughout the process. The number of injections required depends on your individual needs and the area you are looking to treat.
What to Expect During Treatment:
Since getting fillers is non-surgical, treatment can be completed in a visit to our office. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation to determine your needs and desired outcomes. Our injection specialist will also review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have before the treatment process. Even though the risk associated with injectable fillers is relatively low, it’s important to disclose any allergies, medications, or neurological conditions you have prior to starting treatment.
Before the actual treatment, the injection site is cleaned, and a topic anesthetic is applied to numb the area. Our specialist will then carefully inject the filler under the skin. You may notice results immediately, depending on the area you are getting treated. Its not uncommon to experience mild bruising and swelling at the injection site. This usually only lasts up to 5 days; however side effects vary depending on the patient.
Generally, dermal fillers last anywhere from 3 to 18 months depending on the location of the injection and the patient. In some cases, dermal fillers will stimulate your skin to make its own collagen, meaning you may have improvements years after the fillers have dissolved.
