Dermal Filler is a hyaluronic acid, gel like substance which can be injected into many different areas of the face to address multiple concerns.
Dermal fillers are ideally placed in a careful and conservative manner to address facial volume loss, asymmetry, contouring, deep static lines and shadows associated with aging and bone loss, while giving natural results.
Natural results are achieved when normal anatomy, structure and function are respected and enhanced.
Consultation is Key to good dermal filler choices and results.
Poor existing filler should always be dissolved as it will adversely affect the success of your future injectable treatments.
Small amounts of numbing cream placed on the area to be injected, lidocaine containing HA dermal filler gel will be placed into the face resulting in a transient numbness. Treatment will yield immediate results which will continue to improve up to four weeks.
You may have mild to moderate bruising and tenderness post treatment for 24-48 hours.
Some swelling of the tissues is quite normal especially for first time lip filler patients. That’s why we encourage you to factor in social downtime for 24-48 hours post treatment
Dermal Filler will last 2-4 years however once a stable result is achieved many patients opt to maintain their results with smaller annual maintenance appointments in combination with medical grade skincare , anti-wrinkle treatments and skin booster treatments. This will help to promote the longevity and stability of your results over time without resulting in an over treated appearance.
