As aging begins to show its mark, our skin starts to lose elasticity and volume which leads to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face. Unfortunately, we can’t stop the inevitable progress of aging that comes with the ticking clock. Injectable dermal fillers are a great way to restore the volume and radiance in your skin and return it to its original youthful state. Read on for how to turn back the hands of time with dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected just below the skin. Dermal fillers work well with your body because of the main ingredient – hyaluronic acid. This naturally occurring substance is found in the body, and when injected, mimics your own HA. Fillers address a variety of concerns including sagging cheeks, loss of volume in the lips, and under eye circles without having to undergo surgery. A younger appearance can be accomplished with no down time and minimal discomfort.

What to Expect
Typically, your treatment begins with a consultation to discuss your concerns and your desired outcome. Your provider will review types of fillers, what their results will be and your standing medical history. It’s important at that time to disclose any medications, allergies, or neurological conditions you have with your injection specialist.
Prior to the injections being administered, the site is prepped, and a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area. Once numb, your provider will then carefully inject the filler below the skin. Once the treatment is finished, it’s possible to experience some bruising and swelling which may last three to five days after treatment.
