What are Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. One of the most obvious signs of aging is volume loss. As we get older the skin on our face becomes thinner and our fat pads start to drop. Dermal fillers can replace volume loss which can smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and provide definition resulting in a more restored and youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep skin plump and hydrated.Some of the products used in the clinic include:
It will depend on the area being treated, volume loss and size of the area and the amount of syringes used. Many individuals will require a minimum of half to a full syringe per facial region.
Generally the costs are $299-$550 per area treated.
Dermal filler injections are non-surgical and typically completed during an office visit. Your initial treatment will begin with a consultation with one of our medical directors, during that time your goals and concerns will be reviewed along with your medical history.
The area will be cleaned, and you may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area prior to injection.
Many filler products also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, which is intended to help minimize discomfort during and after your treatment.
Some areas can be more sensitive and are more prone to inflammation Prior to receiving this treatment we generally recommended not taking any blood thinners or supplements since some of the agents can increase bruising and swelling.
Your results will be instant. The amount of swelling and bruising can make the area treated appear more voluminous initially however this generally resolves within 24-72 hours.
Most individuals resume normal activity. Ice can be applied intermittently to reduce swelling and discomfort. Rigorous exercise and activity should be avoided for at least 24-48 hours.
