Fighting the Aging Process using Dermal Fillers
As we age, our skin naturally starts to lose some components, such as collagen and elastin. This leads to wrinkles and creases, but you don’t have to sit back and just let it happen. There is a wide range of treatment options available to help you achieve younger, more beautiful looking skin.
Dermal fillers help plump the skin to smooth out fine wrinkles. Small injections of elements that completely integrate with the skin will begin minimizing these signs of aging. Working closely with a professional can help you determine which type of dermal filler best suits your needs.
This is a wrinkle-filler that our aesthetician will inject just under your wrinkled skin. It will begin to add volume over time. The injection will stimulate your body’s own natural collagen, so the results will last a long time. Many of our patients say that their dermal filler treatment lasted them up to a year, and even more in certain cases.
As your body absorbs the gel, it will leave behind your own natural collagen. This collagen is dense and gives you volume, thus providing you with long-term results. If you are seeking a long-lasting and natural-looking solution to fix wrinkles and folds, Radiesse may be the right option for you.
This filler specifically treats etched-in lines and wrinkles in your face. Lines like the vertical lip lines above and around the lips can disappear in just a few treatments. It integrates with your skin tissue to smooth out the wrinkles while still maintaining natural movement and facial expressions.
Although a temporary fix, the results of a smooth face will last for a while before needing touch-ups. We can use Belotero Balance to treat nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, chin wrinkles, smile lines, and wrinkles on the corners of your mouth.
Dermal Fillers FAQs
Dermal fillers can help you achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated look in no time. However, it is important to know the facts about them before seeking treatment. Here, we have put together helpful questions and answers that we get to help you decide if dermal fillers are right for you.
What not to do after getting dermal fillers?
After getting dermal fillers it is important to leave the area alone for at least 3-4 hours after the procedure. Patients should also avoid exposing the area to hot or cold, and direct sun until the swelling and redness have dissipated.
How long does it take a dermal filler to settle?
It can take some time for the filler to settle and give you your desired results. Depending on the type of filler you get, it may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for the results to be fully visible. On average it takes about 2 weeks for dermal filler injections to fully settle. Contact our dentist if your face is still swollen and sensitive after 2 weeks.
What should I avoid before dermal fillers?
Before dermal filler injections, patients should avoid tweezing, waxing, or bleaching hair around the treatment area for at least 2 days. Patients should also stop taking any supplements at least one week before. Patients should specifically avoid vitamin E, garlic, ginseng, and primrose oil before dermal fillers.
What are the risks of getting dermal fillers?
There are some risks with this procedure that you should be aware of before deciding to get dermal fillers. These risks include infection, bruising, swelling, nerve damage, scarring, and asymmetry. In addition, there is a risk of an allergic reaction to the substances in the filler material. It’s important to consult with your doctor before getting any type of dermal filler.
Are there any side effects from using dermal fillers?
Temporary redness and swelling is typical but usually goes away within a few days after treatment. However, it can last up to a week for some individuals. Bruising can be particularly painful physically as well as emotionally if it affects an area that will leave permanent marks on your body like your face or chest. Bleeding is also not uncommon but your dentist can manage it using proper pressure during procedures.
