Areas That Benefit From Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, or substance that retains moisture well, and is naturally produced by the body in our eyes and joints. Thus, many products employ this natural wonder to promote supple, healthy skin.
The benefits of a filler procedure include an immediate improvement and reduction of lines, wrinkles, hollowing, and sagging. As the hyaluronic gel-like product is injected into an area to increase volume, lift, contour, and define, we are also stimulating collagen renewal for a firm and natural result.
As we age, our lips can lose fullness and definition. Dermal fillers are a great way to add volume and definition to your lips and naturally enhance your smile.
Our cheeks are a key feature in our appearance, but they can appear flattened and hollowed over time. Dermal fillers are a very popular way to add fullness to the cheeks, lift sagging, and create a healthier, younger appearance.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are the results of aging, sun exposure, repeated facial movements, and a decrease in collagen production. Dermal fillers can smooth out lines and wrinkles safely and effectively with a natural-looking and refreshed result.
Augmenting and defining the chin with dermal fillers gives balance and a youthful shape to the entire face. This is a popular area for both our female and male clients.
Our jawline is a defining element of our overall appearance. Fillers are great for adding definition and sculpting to the jawline.
Using dermal fillers for contouring addresses many of the concerns we have about sagging and laxity around the mid-face, mouth, and lower face which contribute to a tired and aging appearance. We can sculpt and shape your features to regain a fresh and natural looking more youthful appearance for both women and men.
A Solution to Environmental Factors & Collagen Depletion
As we age, collagen production naturally slows down. That, along with sun exposure as well as environmental and lifestyle factors that contribute to additional collagen depletion, results in thinner skin, lines, and wrinkles. In addition, the subcutaneous tissue and facial fat pads shrink and change as we age, creating hollowing and sagging.
Dermal fillers address both these concerns to improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, hollowing, and sagging skin.
What To Expect
Prior to the treatment, we generally recommend patients feel well and not have major dental procedures or vaccinations for two weeks before or after their filler treatment. Avoid all blood-thinning medications and supplements for one week prior to the appointment if safe to do so, to reduce the incidence of bruising or bleeding at the injection sites. . Avoid alcohol use before and after the procedure. Certain herbal supplements should also be avoided, like St. John’s Wort, Ginkgo Biloba, vitamin E, and others.
In addition, topical products that may cause the skin to be irritated such as glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), and retinol not be applied for at least 4 days before and after treatment. Before the procedure, our team will give you a full list of recommendations to follow for the best possible results.
The majority of dermal filler treatment results can be noticed right after treatment. The product will continue to settle and hydrate for two weeks after the treatment for a final result. The procedure also has a minimal recovery time, save for injection-related risks of redness, localized swelling, and slight bruising. This means you can resume the majority of your normal routine soon afterward.
We review post-procedure recommendations to ensure you refrain from any activity that will influence the treatment results. Avoid alcohol consumption, strenuous exercise, touching or pressure on the treatment areas, makeup, or anything that will irritate the treatment area. We recommend daily sun protection of SPF 30 or higher over the area, every day of the year, no matter the weather or season.
Starting Cost & Time Of Procedure
Range depends on the treatment area and package pricing: An average mid face treatment ranges from $750 – $2200
All dermal filler patients are assessed by our physician and registered nurse injector to ensure they are safe candidates for the procedure.
Medical history, skin health, and rejuvenation goals are all considered as part of your plan to achieve the best results, safely and effectively. Pre and post-procedure recommendations are reviewed with each patient.
The injection process for dermal fillers is largely painless, with some patients experiencing very mild short-term discomfort from the needle injection. However, this discomfort typically subsides very soon after the procedure.
Dermal filler injections can sometimes come with mild side effects, including but not limited to the following:
Some of these side effects are more common than others, but any side effects will typically clear within 3 – 5 days. Our team offers recommendations before and after your procedure to minimize the chance of mild side effects occuring.
The results from a dermal filler injection can be seen instantly and will last anywhere from 12-18 months based on factors such as the treatment area, the amount of product used, metabolism, and movement.
Yes, the filler can be reversed. Our qualified practitioners can reverse the treatment using a solution that dissolves the filler. After some time, the filler should completely dissolve, restoring your skin back to its previous look.
Typically, a dermal filler procedure has minimal downtime. However, because it is an injection treatment using needles and cannulas, there is always a chance of recovery time associated with redness, localized swelling, and mild bruising. Our health professionals follow strict medical protocols to reduce recovery time as much as possible. We offer pre and post recommendations for best results.
