Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic options for many reasons. It’s a minimally-invasive procedure with a quick recovery time. You may have thought about getting it done, but you may wonder if you can still achieve a natural look with fillers.
Fortunately, you can get a natural look with fillers, but a lot of that depends on the quality of the provider you choose. The specialists at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center are highly trained and can help you select a flattering and natural look.
What dermal fillers are
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved injectable compounds that fill your wrinkles and smile lines. You can get a smoothed-out and rejuvenated appearance with a brief visit to the doctor. This elective treatment usually takes less than a half-hour, with the results lasting for months to years.
What dermal fillers can do
Dermal fillers are a great way to enhance your appearance and make you look younger and more refreshed. For many people, fillers can plump up your skin and make you look more youthful again.
When you get older, your skin sags and looks more worn out due to the loss of volume. This lost volume happens as a normal effect of aging because your body produces less collagen, which can make the layers of your skin start to recede. This can make you look older, often much older than your actual age.
The types of dermal fillers we use
When you get dermal fillers at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, we use several different types. These types of fillers are not absorbed by the body, so it provides longer-lasting results. Here are some of the types of fillers we use include the following:
There are several types of fillers that fall under the Juvederm umbrella. These include Juvederm XC, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Volbella®, Juvederm Voluma®, and Juvederm Vollure™ XC. We decide which one to use based on your treatment goals and the areas of your body that you feel need improvement.
Radiesse contains microspheres of a compound called hydroxylapatite (CaHA.) This filler works well to stimulate the production of collagen, which plumps up your skin. Over time, the microspheres dissolve, but the collagen-boosting benefits continue.
What kind of results can you expect
After dermal fillers, you may wonder what to expect from the procedure. Some of the most common results include the following:
- Adding volume to sagging skin
- Making your facial features more symmetrical
- Smooth wrinkles and creases in your face
- Plumping up your lips and cheeks
These usually have very natural results. What determines the results is how much of the fillers you receive. If you don’t have them over-filled, the results should be very natural.
However, some side effects are common and expected. You may experience some bruising after the procedure and some swelling and redness. These usually go away after just a few days, but you can help by using ice packs as relief immediately after the procedure.
