The development of new wrinkles and lines on a person’s face is a natural part of the aging process. Unfortunately, this can dampen one’s look and cause the person to appear tired and older. Fortunately, dermal fillers and other injectables can be used to reverse this effect and provide the person with a younger and more energetic look. Dermal fillers are both safer and less-intrusive than traditional plastic surgery, making them an excellent anti-aging treatment for many patients.
A dermal filler is an injectable solution that is used to fill the soft tissue that is present underneath one’s skin. The treatment has a large number of applications, including reducing wrinkles, tightening skin, boosting lip volume and even preventing chronic migraines. Best of all, the results can be seen immediately after the treatment.
Dermal fillers and other injectables provide many benefits, such as:
- Lip enhancement
- Boost facial contours
- Soften facial creases
- Eliminating wrinkles
- Decrease lower lip shadow
- Reduce scar tissue
- Alleviate chronic migraines
The first step when conducting treatment with dermal fillers is to carefully assess the face and determine where the injections will be applied. Once we have decided on the injection sites, we will use an antibacterial solution to cleanse these areas. When applying the injections, most patients find that they experience little-to-no pain; however, swelling may occur after the procedure, and we generally recommend using an ice pack as part of the healing process. Although the injection sites might feel tender over the next few days after the procedure, this will generally go away on its own.
