Dermal fillers have revolutionized the cosmetic industry. In the past, patients seeking a more youthful appearance would have to go under the knife for a facelift to achieve noticeable results, but today, dermal fillers make it possible for patients to get rid of wrinkles and add volume to the face with a minimally invasive procedure that takes only minutes to perform.
How it works
Dermal fillers are a naturally-derived or synthetic material that is directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years.
How will I look after my treatment ?
Following your injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, correction can last up to six months or longer. If the lips are treated, initial swelling and tenderness may occur within the first several days, but subsides after two or three days.
