Injectable Dermal Fillers
What are dermal filler? Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive procedure that injects hyaluronic acid to diminish fine lines and increase volume in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
Most Common Areas of Treatment.
The entire process takes about 30 mins. We will review your medical history and examine the condition to be treated.We will talk about your areas of concern and assess the face to any asymmetry. We will then clean and numb the area. Very little redness/ swelling will occur after. Bruising can also happen and is recommended not to take Advil/ ibuprofen 48 hours before.
If you take any blood thinners or NSAIDs, you should stop them two weeks prior to injection with the approval of your prescribing doctor. One hour before your appointment, you will be asked to apply a numbing cream to the area we will be treating.
You can resume normal activity after injections immediately. The few activities to avoid are exercising and facials until the following day. You will see results in about 3-5 days.
