How it Works
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, injectable dermal fillers help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. This minimally invasive procedure has been known to help plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars by injecting fillers into the face with a needle.
Please observe the following practices after treatment with cosmetic dermal fillers:
Avoid applying pressure or touching the treated area for six (6) hours after the procedure. The area can then be gently washed with a cleanser and water.
Treatments typically take 15-60 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. The continued aging of your face and variables in the absorption of fillers will affect how long your results last, but typically, you can expect results to last about 6 months to a year or so. Pain level is easily tolerable as most fillers contain Lidocaine; however, we also use other forms of anesthesia to provide patient comfort. Dermal filler injections may also be performed using a Microcannula which is a thin, flexible, and blunt tip cannula that reduces the risk of bruising and swelling.
