As we age, our skin loses elasticity along with the natural fatty deposits that fill out our facial structure. These changes can leave the face looking hollow, exhausted and older.
This can lead to a wide range of facial issues including:
Deep facial creases
Volume loss in cheeks and lips
Undereye hollows and darkening
One of the most effective ways to restore your skin’s natural fullness and youthfulness is by using dermal fillers.
A dermal filler is an injectable solution that provides fullness to lips, enhances cheek volume, smooths out lines and wrinkles and contours the face. Fillers are often comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a foundational element in our skin’s structure. HA works by drawing moisture into the skin’s tissues, plumping and easing out wrinkles in the skin. Depending on the area needing rejuvenation, severity of the lines/folds and the desired results, we will select the appropriate product for you.
STEP 1. CONSULTATION
Prior to treatment, you will have a consultation appointment with our experienced provider. This will allow us to take a full assessment of your skin’s health as well as your medical history to determine whether you are a good candidate for dermal fillers.
At this time, the process will be explained and additional options for skin rejuvenation discussed. If you and our provider agree that a dermal filler is right for you, we will create an individualized treatment plan.
STEP 2. INJECTION PROCEDURE
The procedure will take up to an hour to complete. Our fillers contain Lidocaine, an anesthetic, which keeps discomfort to a minimum. The wrinkle-reducing filler is injected through a small needle. Patients should expect some swelling, redness, and possible bruising post dermal filler injections and take it easy for the rest of the day (no exercising or laying on treatment site). Depending on the area requiring treatment, we may numb you prior to injections for extra comfort.
STEP 3. RESULTS
The benefits of these filler injections can be seen immediately. Lines and folds are smoothed out, the skin is lifted, and a healthy volume is restored. Any residual swelling, bruising, or redness will resolve within one to two weeks and the HA will also encourage the body’s natural production of collagen, giving the face further benefits.
The results can last from six to twelve months depending on the treatment area and the extent of correction. After this time, a repeat treatment is recommended to maintain the results.
