What Are They?
If you haven’t heard of dermal fillers before, your first question is likely what exactly is a dermal filler and how does it help me with the issues mentioned above? Well, thankfully, at World Famous Dermatologist, our experts are more than willing to answer this question for you. Facial or dermal fillers contain a gel-like substance. This substance is made from biocompatible ingredients and is carefully and expertly injected by our professionals into the facial tissues to correct acne scars, enhance the jawline, add volume to sagging skin, restore fullness, plump lips, enhance cheeks and smooth wrinkles. Dermal fillers are one of our fastest growing treatment options and we are excited to offer it to our new and existing customers.
Is the Injected Substance Used in Dermal Fillers Harmful?
No. The injectable substance used in your dermal filler is not harmful. It is composed of naturally occurring substances like hyaluronic and poly-l-lactic acid, which your body will gradually absorb. Therefore, in most cases, this substance causes no issues.
How Long Does a Dermal Filler Injection Last?
The results of dermal fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere from two months up to two years, depending on what product is used and the individual receiving the treatment. One type of dermal filler we offer is the JUVÉDERM® brand face filler. It will differ among other types of substances in terms of how long the effects will last.
More About JUVÉDERM® Fillers
JUVÉDERM® Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which as mentioned above is a naturally occurring substance. It is designed to add hydration and volume into the skin. In addition, JUVÉDERM® fillers are infused with a bit of local anesthetic, which reduces discomfort levels during your treatment.
Do JUVÉDERM® Fillers Hurt? What Are The Potential or Likely Side Effects?
Not really. In most cases, clients attest to experiencing only brief or minimal discomfort when getting this type of dermal filler. In addition, there is low risk of side effects. The most common side effect is a slight bruising at the site of injection that is only temporary in nature. This bruising will go away quickly and can be easily camouflaged with makeup in the meantime. Other side effects could include pain or tenderness in the area, discoloration, swelling, redness, itching or bumps or lumps in the area, all of which are also temporary in nature. In many cases, we recommend a numbing topical cream treatment to reduce any discomfort experienced by our patients.
Post Treatment Care
After a dermal filler treatment, you should do the following to promote healing, improve results and reduce the risk of complications:
- heat exposure or direct sun for at least 24 hours after treatment.
- strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
- drinking any alcoholic beverages for 24 hours.
If you do any of the above, you will increase your risk of temporary side effects including redness, itching or swelling. If you do have any side effects after your injection, use an ice pack on the area.
How Many Treatments are Necessary to See Optimal Results?
In most cases, just one treatment of JUVÉDERM® or other brand of dermal filler will yield optimal results in terms of smoothing out wrinkles. The results will usually last from nine months to one year post-treatment. Of course, results will vary between patients.
More About What Dermal Fillers Can Do?
As we age, it’s not uncommon to lose our natural facial fat, which causes our skin to become sunken in or to sag. Dermal fillers will effectively replace the fat with the gel like substance, which restores our natural, youthful appearance. The following is a more extensive list of what dermal fillers can treat and improve:
- Fills lines around the nose or mouth.
- Improves various signs of aging on the face.
- Plumps lips.
- Contours the cheeks.
- Activates the production of collagen.
- Refreshes and moisturizes the skin.
- Lifts up the brows.
- Removes double chin fat.
- Defines a weak chin or jawline.
- Helps prevent new wrinkles or lines from developing.
- Smooths away even deep marionette lines.
- Treats lines located between the brows.
Are You a Good Candidate For Dermal Fillers?
Any adult woman or man who has lost volume in their skin and who is experiencing wrinkles or lines in their skin is a good candidate for dermal filler treatment. Breast-feeding or pregnant women, or anyone who has experienced an allergic reaction to botulinum type A or any other type of dermal filler should speak with our professionals to discuss alternative treatment options.
