If you’re looking for ways to improve your appearance and take years off your face, dermal fillers might be a good option. Learn more about this procedure below:
What are dermal fillers used for?
Dermal fillers are often used to restore a youthful fullness to your face. As people age, their cheeks can lose their volume and their lips can become thinner. Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume to these areas.
Dermal fillers can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines such as nasolabial folds and other static lines on the face. Dermal fillers can sometimes help reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by movement, but they are especially useful for static lines and creases caused by age, not movement.
What is the procedure like?
Very small needles will be used to inject the filler substance into your face. The procedure is usually pretty quick. Many appointments take 15-30 minutes. Most patients only experience a little bit of fleeting pain that can feel like a sting. In most cases the pain can be prevented and managed by local anesthetic.
Which dermal fillers are used?
There are many dermal fillers available and they have different uses. At Luxurgery, Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, Voluma, Radiesse, Sculptra are some of the common fillers used. Your own fat can also be used as an injectable filler if you prefer that option. A dermatologist can help you determine which filler is best for you.
What is recovery like?
In most cases, patients can return to their regular activities the day of their appointment. There may be a tiny bit of swelling or redness, but it usually goes away quickly. To speed up recovery, avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and salty foods for a few days after your procedure.
How long do results last?
Results will be immediate and they’ll last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the filler used, the area targeted, and the individual patient.
Dermal fillers can make you look younger and more attractive. To learn more about injectable fillers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shridhariani.
