Erase fine lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume to the face.
Fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss are the unfortunate results of the natural aging process. If addressing these effects is at the top of your self-care list, then dermal fillers might be the best course of action to turn back time and help you regain a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Fillers are a very effective treatment option and have been used in the aesthetics industry for years to replenish lost volume and contour the features of the face.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work by literally filling in lines and wrinkles as well as areas of lost volume to create a smoother, firmer appearance. The majority of fillers on the market today contain hyaluronic acid (HA) as their primary component, which is a naturally occurring building block of smooth, healthy skin that unfortunately diminishes with age. HA’s claim to fame is its ability to hold much more than its weight in water. When injected into the skin, HA dermal fillers add both fullness and hydration to produce a characteristically youthful look.
At Vibrant Med Spa, we can use dermal fillers in small amounts for minor corrections, such as smoothing a few small wrinkles or dimples, or we can utilize more significant volumes to provide more dramatic results. Either way, fillers can be a great option for people desiring a more youthful appearance. Different fillers have different purposes, so our knowledgeable team will help you determine the appropriate filler to best meet your personal aesthetic goals at your consultation.
Am I a good candidate for dermal fillers?
Fillers are often a great option for providing nonsurgical facial rejuvenation for adults in generally good health and of varying ages and skin types. People showing more advanced signs of aging and skin laxity, however, may require more invasive treatment options to achieve their aesthetic goals. We’ll thoroughly discuss all your available options at your private consultation.
Where can dermal fillers be used?
Fillers can be very effective at improving the following areas:
- Tear troughs
Whether you’re concerned about nasolabial folds, other deep facial lines, or you desire to augment your lips or even restore a youthful “apple” shape to your cheeks, dermal fillers may be the best option to produce the desired results you’ve been hoping for.
Do dermal fillers require any downtime?
In most cases, dermal fillers don’t require any downtime and most people resume their normal activities once injections are complete. However, we recommend you avoid any heavy physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to help minimize swelling and bruising. Temporary swelling and bruising are the most common side effects of injections and can most often be alleviated by applying ice to the treatment area periodically. We’ll go over everything you can expect during your consultation.
What are the results I can expect with dermal fillers?
Most people notice immediate improvement as lines and wrinkles are diminished or eliminated. Optimal smoothing effects, however, typically take a few days to show following treatment. You may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or redness at and around the injection site, but these usually resolve in a few days. It’s important to understand that injectable fillers provide temporary improvements and must be repeated periodically to maintain results. Depending on the type of filler you choose and where it’s injected, results can last anywhere from 6-12 months in most cases.
