What does a Injectable Dermal Filler appointment entail?

If you're looking for a safe procedure that yields quick and effective results, an injectable dermal filler might be right for you. Injectable dermal fillers are minimally invasive treatments used to smooth wrinkles and laugh lines, enhance lips, improve skin texture, fill in hollows under the eyes, and contour facial features.

The injections involve the use of a hyaluronic acid-based gel which is injected into the deeper layers of skin to plump it up and make it look smoother. The process begins with a consultation with one of our experienced practitioners who will determine if you are suited for this treatment.

During your appointment, they will discuss your aesthetic goals and decide on which areas of the face should be targeted. After your consultation, a topical anesthetic will be applied to make the area more comfortable and reduce any discomfort during the injection process. Once this is done, the practitioner injects the hyaluronic acid-based gel into different areas of the face in order to fill out wrinkles, enhance lips, and contour facial features. The entire procedure usually takes around 15-30 minutes depending on how many areas need to be treated.

Results are typically seen immediately and last anywhere from 6 months to two years depending on which type of filler was used. This simple yet effective procedure can help you achieve a smoother youthful look without surgery or downtime. We are dedicated to providing high-quality services with excellent customer care so you can leave feeling confident and beautiful.

Dermal Filler Options

At this point, you might be wondering what dermal filler options are available to individual patients. Well, there's good news! There is a wide range of injectable fillers that are designed to address specific areas of the face or body. From plumping lips and smoothing wrinkles to restoring volume in sunken cheeks, there is a filler that can help achieve individual aesthetic goals. Depending on your individual needs, fillers are available in various consistencies, ranging from thin and elastic to thick and gel-like. Each type of product has its own unique purpose and advantages. Our experienced and trained aesthetic medical team can help you determine which type is best for your individual situation.

Restylane Contour

As we get older, our midface loses volume which results in a lack of definition in our cheeks. However, there is a solution to this problem - Restylane Contour. It is the only cheek filler that uses XpresHAn Technology™ which helps in restoring the natural contour of your cheeks, giving you the freedom to express yourself, and giving you a refreshed look.

What is the recovery for after a Dermal Filler appointment?

Recovering from a Dermal Filler injection is individual to each patient. Typically the recovery time can range from one or two days up to a few weeks, depending on individual factors such as the area of the body being treated and how much filler was used. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness and tenderness in the treated area. To help reduce any discomfort during recovery, we may recommend applying an ice pack to soothe inflammation. Additionally, taking over-the-counter medication can provide relief if needed. In general, we advise avoiding makeup and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment. However, individual needs will vary and it is important to follow the individualized post-treatment we will plan carefully for you. With proper recovery and care, you'll be able to enjoy the beautiful new look achieved by your treatment!

Am I a good candidate for Dermal Filler?

Good candidates for injectable dermal fillers should be in good general health, have realistic expectations of the outcome of treatment, and understand the possible risks involved. Those who are unhappy with deep facial creases, wrinkles along the forehead or around the eyes or mouth, thin lips, or age-related facial volume loss due to aging can all benefit from this non-surgical procedure. Additionally, individuals requiring subtle enhancements in contours and symmetry may also be suitable candidates for injectables. With injectable dermal fillers, individual treatments may be customized to achieve individual goals and yield natural-looking, long-lasting results.

Neurotoxins vs. Dermal Filler

Neurotoxins, like Botox and Dysport, are proteins that temporarily reduce or prevent certain facial muscle contractions to smooth out wrinkles and lines. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, contain hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin to add volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Both neurotoxins and dermal fillers have individual benefits for individual patients depending on their individual needs. Neurotoxins can be used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead furrows, smile lines around the eyes (crow’s feet ) and more. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume, enhance facial contours such as cheeks or lips or reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles. Both treatments can be combined for an individualized approach that will bring out your best features and give you a refreshed look. With these powerful treatments from our medical spa, you can make a real difference in how you look and feel about yourself! Come experience the individual benefits of neurotoxins and dermal fillers today! Together we can help you achieve the younger-looking skin you’ve been dreaming about.
