Dermal fillers are a leading rejuvenation treatment to restore fullness to the face. To diminish facial lines and restore volume, dermal filler are injected into the face to treat problem areas. It may be used to enhance shallow contours, plump thin lips, and soften facial creases. Dermal fillers (like these) work by plumping the area around the injected problem site. There are various fillers that each achieve this in a different way, and result in giving the face a more youthful and fuller appearance.
The loss of volume in the face as we age results in the facial muscles working closer to the surface of the skin making lines become more visible. Lines that were not apparent before such as smile lines and crow’s feet have more depth with the loss of facial fat.
Other factors that weigh in include sun exposure, lifestyle, and the stretching of skin over time. These factors can all be diminished with the help of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers provide a non-invasive treatment with little down time. Minimal recovery time makes them a popular choice when considering a skin recovery treatment that is right for you.
Trouble Spots Virtually Disappear
For a fraction of what a traditional facelift cost, injectable fillers can give the appearance of a more youthful look. Results can last up to four months or longer depending on each individual case. The procedure takes approximately thirty minutes with minimal recovery time. Dermal fillers are different than Botox in that they fill the creased area instead of relaxing the muscle under it.
It is important to only receive this procedure from certified doctors, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. This insures safe results.
The duration time of results varies and can range from several months to two years. Further research has shown that injections help stimulate collagen production in the body which helps to replenish the skins youthfulness. In addition less filler may be needed over time to achieve the same results.
What to Expect With a Dermal Filler Procedure
Here’s what to expect from the dermal filler injection procedure says Red Bamboo Medi-Spa. Your board certified doctor begins the session with a consultation in which the appearance of your skin is given an evaluation. This will determine the points on your face to be injected with the appropriate dermal filler, and the areas will be marked.
Next an antibacterial agent is used to cleanse the area of injection. Sometimes a topical anesthetic is used to numb the site of injection if the filler does not contain its own natural anesthetic. Once the procedure begins the entire time of the treatment will depend on the number of injections needed. However, it only takes a few moments per injection.
After the treatment has ended, the marks will be cleared from the face. To alleviate any discomfort or swelling it is recommended that ice be used on the problem areas.
Instructions will be given as well as safety information post treatment. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure the down time is miniscule and most are able to continue with normal activity.
