How can dermal fillers rejuvenate your appearance?

As you get older, fine lines appear, and certain areas of your face can lose volume and dimension. Though we firmly believe our patients are beautiful at every age, we know that these effects can take a toll on your self-esteem. That is why we are proud to offer minimally invasive dermal fillers. 

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use small amounts of gel-like material to fill fine lines, boost volume, and define contour in the treatment areas. With several types of fillers to choose from, our experts can help you select the type that will yield the most natural and long-lasting results. Dermal filler is one of the most widely used non-surgical treatments to restore volume loss and smoothness. 

How do dermal fillers work?

Your practitioner will inject your selected filler just below the skin to boost volume, augment contour and soften lines and folds. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most commonly used type of fillers. It is a natural substance already found in the body and keeps your skin hydrated. With age, your body's production of HA decreases. 

You may be a candidate for fillers if you wish to…

  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles, 
  • add volume or enhance the contour of your mid-face
  • increase the volume or redefine your lips
  • reduce the appearance of small scars. 

What to Expect When You Get Dermal Fillers

Before the injections, you will meet with your aesthetic expert, who will carefully plan your treatment and make sure you have realistic expectations and goals that can be achieved with dermal filler. When you are ready, your practitioner will clean and in some circumstances numb your skin with a topical anesthetic. He or she will then inject the filler with a fine needle, and the results will be seen right away. Typically people will feel a slight pinch or a tiny sting. Most of the filler agents include lidocaine to control the pain better and freeze the area as we inject them. 

Treatment usually takes no more than an hour, and you can return to work and your other daily activities immediately, avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours.

Side Effects and Results

Side effects of dermal fillers are minimal because it’s a non-surgical procedure. You may experience some swelling and bruising, but these typically go away after days or weeks. 

In most cases, the results of dermal fillers are immediately noticeable. These results can last months or even years, depending on the type of filler and the location. You can prolong the results by practicing good skin care, such as using appropriate products and applying sunscreen every day.

Best of all, the results are discreet and natural, yet they can take years off your appearance. Your more youthful look can also give you a huge boost of confidence that can impact nearly every aspect of your life.
