You may already know a little something about dermal fillers. There are a variety of dermal fillers available, such as Juvederm and Restylane. Other fillers include, Radiesse, Sculptra, and more. Once the filler is injected into a patient’s skin, it will fill the area with volume and smooth out any folds or wrinkles.
There are many fillers available on the market — the doctor will decide which one is right for you. Temporary fillers last for a shorter duration (four to six months, usually) and have no long-term adverse side effects.
Permanent fillers are less costly in the long-term, but can come with long-term complications if you get one. They should be administered by experienced physicians. Your face also may look ‘off’ after 10 years, when it has significantly changed.
A small amount of filler is injected with a tiny needle into the wrinkled area. A patient might need a local nerve block or topical anesthetic. But this is a completely safe and common treatment.
Parts of the face that can be treated include lips, wrinkles on the face, nasolabial folds, and defects/scars on the body and face.
When it is injected beneath the wrinkle or fold, the natural substance will draw water into the area and form natural correction of volume compared with artificial materials that are sometimes used. When it is injected into the lip, it enhances the look and volume of the lip. It can give a patient the plump lips they’ve long desired. The border of the lips are also defined, which gives off a more youthful appearance.
You may need future treatments, approximately every five to six months. The outcome will depend on the initial correction. For example, if you had initial complete correction with the right amount of syringes, the treatment may last longer. Immediate results can be seen after treatment. You may experience some swelling in the few days after treatment, but it will get better quickly.
