If you feel that you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore your confidence with a fresh, youthful look, read more to learn about dermal filler, which is an effective and convenient option for many patients.

What Is Dermal Filler?

A dermal filler is a type of cosmetic injectable made of a gel-like substance, most popularly Hyaluronic Acid. Minimally invasive and incredibly versatile, they’ve withstood the test of time as a popular treatment for reducing wrinkles, creases, and other signs of aging. In addition, they can work wonders in completely redefining your facial features. Moreover, this versatile tool of plastic surgery:

  • Smooths wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and nose.
  • Improves the appearance of scars and other imperfections.
  • Enhances facial features, like your jawline and chin.
  • Adds volume to your cheeks, lips, and temples.
  • Fills deep creases and folds.

The options offered by any dermal filler are limitless. In the end, it’s all about you and the look you desire. You deserve to feel comfortable in your body. Now, the control is yours.

First, they’re injected using only a fine needle. Then, the dermal filler immediately gets to work. It attracts water to the area it’s injected into, which plumps up the skin and smooths it. Specifically, hyaluronic acid works by binding to those water molecules and gently expanding. Moreover, this adds incredible volume and new structure to your skin that may have been lost to age and other factors. The best part? These incredible effects can last from several months to several years. It’s all about finding the right expert to create a treatment plan as unique as you.

Who Is a Candidate for Dermal Filler?

Dermal filler can be an option for adults of many ages, most commonly for adults in their thirties. Candidates should be in good health and should not smoke or be ready to stop smoking. Smokers might have less success with dermal fillers because their bodies take longer to heal. You should also be ready to talk about your expectations and goals with us so we can decide, together, if dermal filler is the best option for you. Candidates should understand that, while the results of dermal fillers can last for up to two years, the results are not permanent. This treatment is ideal for people experiencing cheeks that are sunken in appearance, wrinkles or lines surrounding the nose or mouth, thinning lips, and a receding appearance of the chin.

What to Expect During a Dermal Filler Treatment

Before the treatment is given, the skin and structure of your face will be evaluated. Photographs may be taken and markings might be made on the face to indicate where the filler should be injected. The areas where injection will take place will be thoroughly cleaned, and local anesthesia or a numbing agent might be used to reduce discomfort. 

The treatment itself usually takes between 15 minutes and an hour to complete. The filler will be injected via a very thin needle and the skin will be massaged to distribute it. Throughout the process, our team members will evaluate the results and give more injections if necessary to guarantee that your desired look is fulfilled.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

Patients can usually pick up normal activity levels immediately, but intense exercise should be avoided for the first couple of days. Temporary swelling, bruising, lumps, and sensitivity are common and are not usually a cause for concern. Our team will give you a detailed plan on how to manage discomfort and other symptoms and ensure that you’re healing properly.
