Dermal Fillers is a transparent injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid or other substances that helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away wrinkles and facial folds. Dermal Fillers is appropriate for any area of the face, including lines and creases around the mouth, nose, eyes and forehead. It can also be used for facial contouring as well as to improve the appearance of scars, such as those caused by acne, or to enhance the size and shape of the lips.
Dermal Fillers restores volume loss from deeper areas of the face and enhances facial appearance. It adds fullness to the lips and reduces any fine lines. It lessens the appearance of static wrinkles, lines, and folds. It is helps to provide smooth and natural results that last for up to two years.
The procedure involves injections using a fine needle. Most of the products contain the local anesthetic lidocaine to help lessen discomfort during injection, or patients may choose to numb the site prior to injection.
There should be minimal downtime or no downtime after the procedure. Patients may return to their normal routine. Some of them may experience mild redness, swelling or bruises. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. It is a lunch time procedure, hence there is no need to take time off work.
The result is immediate, but it can take a few days to “settle into” it’s final shape. It often looks even better after a day or two. Many patients are surprised at how much better they look right after their treatment.
