Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles and add volume to certain areas of the face. They have become increasingly popular due to their non-invasive nature and immediate results. Let’s take a closer look at dermal fillers, how they work, and what you should expect from your treatment.
How do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers are made from a variety of substances including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse), poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), and more. These substances are injected into the skin to reduce wrinkles or add volume to certain areas of the face. Depending on the product used, results can last anywhere from several months up to several years. The procedure is relatively quick and easy with minimal discomfort during and after the treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can be used in many different areas of the face, but they are most used around the mouth and nose area as well as in the cheeks, jawline, and chin. They can also be used to address dark circles under the eyes or hollowed temples. Your doctor will assess your needs during a consultation to determine which filler would be best for you.
What Should I Expect from My Treatment?
Your treatment should begin with a consultation with your doctor, where you will discuss your desired results and any medical history that might affect your treatment plan. During the injection itself, there may be some slight discomfort, but this usually subsides quickly with no need for anesthesia or numbing agents. Afterwards, there may be some slight swelling or bruising but this should resolve after a few days. You should notice an immediate improvement in your appearance after treatment with long lasting results depending on which type of filler was used.
Dermal fillers can provide an effective solution for reducing wrinkles and adding volume to certain areas of the face without undergoing surgery or other invasive treatments. The procedure is relatively quick and easy with minimal downtime afterward so you can get back to living life without worrying about any post-procedure recovery time. If you’re considering dermal fillers for yourself, it’s important that you consult with your doctor first so that they can assess your needs and help determine which type of filler would be best for you.
