As a person becomes older, it is very common for wrinkles and new lines to develop on their face. This can dampen their look and make the person appear tired and older. In order to reverse this effect, dermal fillers can be used to provide them with a more youthful and energetic appearance. As an anti-aging solution that is both safer and less-intrusive than plastic surgery, dermal fillers are quickly becoming one of our most popular treatments.
A dermal filler is comprised of an injectable solution that is used to fill the soft tissue found underneath one’s skin. The treatment can be used in a variety of different ways, most notably as a way to combat aging, wrinkles and sagging skin. Dermal fillers, as well as other injectables, can also be used to fill-in facial creases, eliminate lines, increase cheek and lip volume, enhance facial contours and even stop chronic migraines.
Dermal fillers and other injectables provide the following benefits:
When providing dermal fillers, we start by assessing the face and determining the exact areas for treatment. Once the injection sites have been determined, we will cleanse these areas using an antibacterial agent. Most patients find that the injections themselves feature only minimal pain if any; however, we do recommend using an ice pack after the procedure as a way of providing comfort and reducing any swelling that occurs. It is also common for the area to feel tender for the next few days, but this generally goes away on its own. After treatment is complete, the results will be immediately noticeable.
