Using a fine needle, your healthcare provider injects small amounts of fillers under the skin. The needle will prick or itch, but most people don't feel much pain during these injections. Your healthcare provider can inject fillers into several areas.
Dermal fillersare gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, or improve facial contours.
More than 1 million men and women annually choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump lips and restore a more youthful appearance. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, smooth facial creases, eliminate wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars. The duration of the effects of dermal fillers depends on the product, the treatment area and the patient.
While the risks associated with dermal fillers are minimal, you need to disclose your full medical history before treatment, as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions, or medications may jeopardize your safety or results. With so many dermal filler products on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you without the guidance of an experienced cosmetic surgeon. Dermal filler treatment involves injecting a gel-like substance (natural or synthetic) into specific areas of the face with a cannula or needle. There are different types of dermal filler substances (some temporary, others more durable, others more dilute and others thicker), such as calcium hydroxyapatite, polymethylmethacrylate and hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are also great for giving volume due to the hydrophilic (water-loving) nature of hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular way to reduce signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. These injectable treatments can help smooth wrinkles, plump lips and restore lost volume in areas such as the cheeks and temples. They can also be used to enhance shallow contours, eliminate wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars.
The duration of the effects of dermal fillers depends on the product used, the treatment area and the patient's individual characteristics. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are particularly popular due to their ability to attract and retain water molecules in the skin for long-lasting results. Before undergoing any type of dermal filler treatment, it is important to disclose your full medical history to your healthcare provider as certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions or medications may jeopardize your safety or results. It is also important to consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who can help you choose the right product for your needs.
Overall, dermal fillers offer a safe and effective way to reduce signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy long-lasting results that will help you look and feel your best.
