Dermal Fillers | FORT WORTH, TX
Over time, the beautiful appearance of your face may start to diminish due to lines, wrinkles, and sagging, which forms part of the aging process and is compounded by environmental factors like gravity. Thankfully, treatments like fillers exist to restore the beauty and youthfulness of your skin quickly and effectively.
What Are Fillers?
As the name implies, fillers are a cosmetic technique that’s used to ‘fill’ the wrinkles and lines found in certain areas of your face, resulting in a fuller and more youthful appearance so you can say goodbye to those creases and crow’s feet.
Fillers can also be effective in reducing the appearance of scars, enhancing the shape of your cheekbones, rejuvenating the hands, creating fuller lips and lifting tired looking brows or a downturned mouth.
Furthermore, fillers give you instant results while requiring very little recovery time after the procedure, which makes them an ideal treatment to use when looking for quick results in preparation for a surprise special occasion, or just to improve your appearance.
How It Works
Dermal fillers are typically obtained from either natural or synthetic material and come in gel form, which is inserted into the skin through an injection until the desired result is achieved. The gel boosts collagen production in the skin and imitates the natural substance that would normally be found in a fuller and more youthful face.
Getting fillers is a quick procedure and begins with a consultation with the doctor as to discuss your desired goal. You’ll see noticeable results within seconds of the procedure, including a fuller and more youthful appearance.
These results can last between six months and five years, depending on the type of filler that you’ve elected to have done. In the end, fillers work to produce a younger looking face by eliminating all those pesky lines and wrinkles.
What It’s For
Dermal fillers can be used to correct some issues that come into play as the skin starts to mature over the years. These include, but are not limited to:
To plump up laugh lines and reduce the sagging around the cheeks
- To fill out the hollowed areas under your eyes and significantly lessen that ‘tired’ look
- Enhancing the appearance of your cheekbones to create a fuller and more youthful frame for your face
- Adding more volume to your face to reduce the gauntness along the cheeks and the temple
- To add volume to the lips and smooth out the vertical lines which often form along the edges of your lips
- Evening out the skin to reduce the appearance of scars and imperfections
- To give your skin a more supple and youthful appearance
What To Expect
Before the treatment, we’ll meet with you to discuss your needs and goals. At this point, o=we should also look at your medical history and examine you for any specific problem areas that need to be addressed.
We may also ask you about any medications that you may be taking to ensure that there won’t be any contra-indications with the materials used in the fillers.
Within 30 minutes of applying a numbing cream, the procedure begins when we inject the gel into the targeted regions. This is a fairly quick procedure and shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to complete, which depends on the number of problem areas that we’ll be addressing that day. Recovery is also instantaneous, which means that you can get back to your day immediately after the procedure with minimal, if any, discomfort.
Initially, your face will seem puffy and might even take on a bloodshot appearance, but that initial reaction to the injection will disappear in no time, revealing a plump appearance. Fillers produce almost instantaneous results.
Because while fine lines and crow’s feet might disappear immediately, other deeper furrows and wrinkles will take time before they vanish. Essentially, it can take up to two weeks before you see the full results of the procedure and notice a more youthful appearance.
We advise that you lie down and take a few precautions when you get home, but generally speaking, you should be able to return to your daily life within a few hours of performing the procedure. There may be some minor bruising, depending on the type of filler that was used, but you can cover that up effortlessly with concealer.
It’s also important to keep in mind that there are different types of fillers meant for different purposes and they take different time frames to show results. Others will require multiple procedures before they start to take effect, while others show results instantly – the same conditions apply when it comes to recovery.
