Dermal fillers are becomingly increasingly popular with those of a certain age who have begun noticing fine lines and wrinkles on their face. If you have been experiencing wrinkles, creases, dry skin or a loss of facial fullness, treatment with dermal fillers may be right for you. This treatment offers you a type of “liquid facelift” that does not require surgery or lengthy downtime.
One of the strongest appeals of dermal fillers among our patients is that this skin rejuvenation method does not require invasive surgery. Surgery can offer good results, but with any surgery, there are risks. Infection is one such risk. Since cosmetic surgery involves incisions, the recovery period can also be lengthy and highly uncomfortable.
Treatment with dermal fillers is safer than surgery because it only involves a series of injections. The materials used are also quite safe. Since the materials used are recognized by the body as natural substances, they have a very low risk of causing an allergic reaction when skillfully injected into the skin.
The Treatment Process
Being treated with dermal fillers for your skin problems is quite simple. We first consult with you in order to determine if you qualify for treatment. From there, we can select a filler that is best suited for your needs. During the actual treatment session, our provider will skillfully inject the product into the preselected areas.
The injected gel flows easily under your skin and basically becomes a part of your skin. It will remain there for months to more than a year, depending upon which exact type of filler you are treated with. No matter what type of dermal filler treatment you undergo, the injected material will be gradually absorbed by your body over the following months. So, you will need follow-up treatments at our office to maintain your results.
Types of Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a very popular choice as a dermal filler because it is a material manufactured by your own body to absorb moisture and make it available to your skin cells. Hyaluronic acid is found in most soft tissues of the body, your eyes, joints and throughout your skin.
After your treatment with hyaluronic acid, you can expect some immediate results. The injected gel with soak up water like a sponge and make your skin cells swell. This will help hydrate your skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
