Dermal fillers are a great way to fill in lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. However, you may have some questions that you would like to have answered before you decide they are right for you.
The first thing to understand is exactly what dermal fillers really are. They are injectable gels that are slowly administered under the skin in areas where more volume is needed. The main ingredient in most fillers is hyaluronic acid. This is something that you already have in your body. This is a long-lasting treatment that can help to improve your appearance, but it is not a permanent treatment. It is mostly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and folds, as well as add volume to different areas of the face.
Dermal fillers are effective because they immediately give volume to the area where they are injected. However, there is more to it. The ingredients that are contained in the filler that you choose can help increase the hydration in the area that receives treatment. So, not only do you immediately get more lift and volume, but you are also going to notice that your skin continues to benefit in the months that the product is still active.
So, are dermal fillers really safe to use? The answer to that question is yes. There are very few cases of individuals who have had problems with fillers that are based on hyaluronic acid. However, when you come in for your consultation, we will discuss all of the concerns that you have about using dermal fillers and other treatments. We will make sure the treatment is safe for you before moving forward.
What is involved in a dermal filler treatment? The product will very gently be injected into trouble areas. The depth and the number of injections that you need are going to be determined during your consultation. Each individual is different, and so it is hard to say what you will need in particular. However, the great thing is that you are going to enjoy immediate results.
