What are Dermal Fillers?
You’ve always been able to look younger than your age, trimming a few years off here and there with your stylish clothes, your radiant smile, and even your vibrant personality. All the while, the effects of aging have been trying to catch up to you, working to form small wrinkles and stubborn etched-in lines on specific areas of your face.
Maybe you’ve noticed a few stubborn lines above your lips that used to be hidden by makeup, or you’ve caught your reflection and seen some small wrinkles starting to develop around your mouth. Although these changes are natural, it doesn’t mean you have to live with them.
Fortunately, there are several ideal options that can help you take those wrinkles all the way to smooth! Dermal fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 6 months to up to 2 years.
Dermal fillers, unlike Neuromodulators like Xeomin® that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line/crease/area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear.
What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler can be used to enhance the volume, shape, and smoothness of any area of your face:
Sagging skin around the cheeks and neck
How do they work?
Dermal Fillers work by temporarily adding volume to facial tissue.
How long does one treatment last?
Results are noticed immediately and can last anywhere from 6-12 mths, sometimes affected by one's metabolism
What are the risks/side effects?
The most common potential side effects of Dermal Fillers include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, redness, and pain at the injection points. Some, patients experience muscle weakness, which will diminish within a few days. Some patients may have an allergic reaction to the bacterial protein elements present in the gel. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use Dermal Filler. For a full list of risks and side effects, please consult a medical professional.
Common Question is: How many syringes does it take to lift my face?
The Dermal fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in our skin. The answer is variable because every face is unique. A good guideline for someone who has never had fillers is this: For every decade of life, 1-2 syringes will be required. If someone has been using fillers already, less is needed for a beautiful, natural outcome. There are 5 syringes in a teaspoon, so usually with 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar, beautiful things can happen. We look forward to enhancing your natural beauty.
