What Dermal Fillers Can Offer You:
Enhance Your Appearance With Dermal Fillers
The desire to look your best is something that we take pride in helping our clients to achieve. There are several tools available to help diminish the signs of aging, and dermal fillers are a great option. Youthful skin is characterized by smoothness and elasticity, reflecting light in the right places to create a complexion that glows. As we age, sun damage and natural loss of volume can contribute to fine lines and sagging. Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical treatment that can help enhance and rejuvenate, combatting many signs of aged skin as well as other contour concerns.
Understanding Aging and How Dermal Fillers Work
The aging process leads to a number of facial changes. Volume loss and the deteriorating quality of our skin are the two major issues to combat. Hallowing above and below the eyes and at the temples, as well as generalized sagging at the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and jowls are all due in part to volume loss. We naturally have fat in our skin and in deeper compartments in the face, and over decades this both diminish as well as slides down. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are two important components of healthy, soft, elastic skin. Loss of these contributes to fine lines throughout the face, especially in sun-exposed areas and in those who smoke. Fillers can address both of these problems: they are composed of hyaluronic acid, which replenishes the skin, as well as providing volume to plump up areas that have succumbed to gravity and normal aging.
How Dermal Fillers Can Positively Affect Your Physical Appearance
Dermal fillers can be used to soften, smooth, and rejuvenate your face in a natural way. An alternative to a facelift, these non-invasive enhancements can make a big difference if done by an experienced practitioner who has an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy, and how aging affects each part of the face. Thin lips, laugh lines, dark circles, and deeper etched-in lines are just a few of the indications for filler. They can even help in cases of a scar, where a small amount injected just underneath can help improve the contour of the affected area. If any of these are a concern for you, you may be a great candidate for filler.
Healing After Getting Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive way to enhance your face with little to no downtime. Performed in an office setting after a numbing cream is applied, you can expect to have minimal redness at the injection site, as well as some mild swelling in the area. With proper technique, bruising is usually not a problem. The onset is immediate, and you can expect to see your permanent result after the swelling resolves within 24 hours. Depending on the product used and the area injected, you can expect your results to last between 9 and 18 months. Avoiding strenuous activities for 24 hours after getting filler will minimize any adverse events.
