What are Dermal Fillers?
One of the most popular aesthetic treatments worldwide, dermal fillers are mostly comprised of hyaluronic acid and other substances that are found naturally in the body. While each dermal filler has its approved uses and benefits, each effectively plumps volume-deficient areas.
Dermal fillers are directly injected underneath the skin with a superfine needle, a procedure that is typically painless and easy to fit into any schedule. The ingredients of dermal fillers bond with water and not only volumize treated areas but can also continue improve the skin over time.
What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?
Most dermal fillers are approved for use in the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and chin areas, with some also cleared for cheek and lip augmentation. Dermal fillers can treat multiple cosmetic concerns, including:
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Light general scarring
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Sunken cheeks
- Thinning lips
What Dermal Filler is Right for Me?
During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your health, medical history, and individual skin condition will be evaluated to determine if our facial fillers are the best course of treatment for your cosmetic goals.
An allergy test may be performed prior to treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions, and certain contraindicating medical conditions may eliminate candidacy for this procedure.
How Long Will My Results Last?
While results are immediate, facial fillers are eventually absorbed by the body, causing the visible signs of aging to recur in treated areas. Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired results, which can be discussed during your consultation. With regular treatment, your smoother, silkier skin can be maintained over the long-term.
While dermal fillers can reverse cosmetic issues, results can still be affected by gravity and the aging process.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Some bruising, redness, swelling and itchiness at injection sites are common and should subside shortly after treatment. Dermal fillers require no recovery time, and results can be fully enjoyed immediately afterward.
While the majority of patients report no major side effects, each dermal filler has its unique set of possible complications, will be discussed with you beforehand.
