Dermal fillers are becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. When you think of dermal fillers, the first thing you probably think of is a way to reduce the signs of aging. Although fillers are definitely an effective way of smoothing out facial lines and filling in the volume lost over the years, that’s not the only way to enhance your look with them. Here’s a quick guide to some of the options for these versatile injectables.
What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
- Your Facial Outline: Fillers can help you add volume to your face and enhance the natural beauty you already have. As facial contouring has become more popular in recent years, many women want a more sculpted look. Because dermal fillers are specifically designed to add volume, they’re a great way to add a little extra fullness where you need it. If you’ve always wanted more pronounced cheekbones, fillers can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
- Lip Fillers: The lips are one of the most popular treatment areas for fillers. This is really no surprise since thinning lips are a natural part of aging and can make you look older. With our dermal fillers, you can get fuller lips that look natural. We take advantage of the natural beauty that’s already there in your mouth and simply emphasize it.
- Cheeks: Cheek fillers are a type of injection that can give the illusion of more defined cheekbones and a smoother facial appearance. The procedure involves adding volume to the area above and around the cheekbones, as well as injecting volume into the skin layer beneath the surface to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Your Body: Contrary to popular belief, dermal fillers and collagen cosmetic injections are not necessarily only for the face. In fact, they can be formulated for use in other areas of the body as well. While the face is the most popular injection site, people also tend to get dermal fillers injected into the hands and other body areas to smooth wrinkles and reduce the appearance of veins.
What Skin Conditions Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Deepened Scars: Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become filled with oil and dead skin cells, resulting in blackheads and pimples Acne scars occur when blemishes break through the hair follicles and penetrate deeper into the skin. When acne is gone, your skin uses collagen fibers to repair the damage. When your skin produces too much or too little collagen, you can end up with depressed or raised acne scars. Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume under the skin. Dermal fillers can also improve the appearance of certain acne scars.
What To Expect From Fillers
When you receive fillers, the process begins with a conversation with our experts to make sure you receive the suitable filler for your goals. Once you’ve determined the treatment for your target area, the actual procedure lasts a few minutes. The side effects of dermal fillers are rare but very mild. These include redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. Discomfort or tenderness lasts only a few days and is usually treatable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
After your appointment, you can hit the road and return to your day without major downtime. Recovery time varies with each patient and with each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities immediately, but it is generally recommended to avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your doctor before scheduling an injection.
