If you are unhappy with your appearance, whether it’s marionette lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or loss of volume in the cheeks, you may be a candidate for dermal fillers. Younger patients looking for more plumpness in the lips are also candidates for dermal fillers.
As we grow older, it’s natural for our face to lose subcutaneous tissue, resulting in increasing wrinkles and folds in the skin. This makes people look older than they really are. In addition, the skin also stretches as we age, which adds to the appearance of volume loss. Factors such as smoking, excessive sunlight exposure and heredity can also affect the facial skin. Dermal fillers can:
- Reduce creases or folds in the naso-labial region
- Smooth facial wrinkles
- Fill-in creases in the “11’s” not improved with botox alone
- Plump the lips
- Enhance shallow contours as in the cheeks
- Soften marionette’s line on the sides of the chin
- Reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes
After a treatment with dermal fillers, the signs of aging are greatly reduced right away, giving patients an immediate boost in confidence. Treatments usually take between 10 to 15minutes and there is minimal discomfort. Topical numbing cream can be applied prior to dermal fillers to minimize discomfort.
Results are immediate and can last for up to one year or longer. There may be minimal swelling or bruising at the injection site, which typically will last only for a day or so. Complications are rare, especially in the hands of an experienced well trained injector.
Dermal fillers can be used alone or along with other facial rejuvenation procedures. At Lumiere Pure Body Med Spa, we have extensive experience with the various dermal fillers currently available. Choice of filler will be customized by patient preference and clinical findings.
