Our bodies naturally change with age, and those differences might include new wrinkles on our faces or cheekbones that aren’t as high as they once were. Dermal fillers can help minimize these signs of aging if you’re unhappy with them. Dermal Fillers used at Dr Tvacha are USFDA Approved and made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body which are used to diminish the signs of aging and restore youthful volume and contours to the face. This highly popular procedure is minimally invasive with no downtime and completely rejuvenates the face.
Dermal Fillers are used in facial aesthetics to contour, add volume, or plump up areas where wrinkles and folds have appeared due to aging or scarring. Popular Dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. It stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps the skin (collagen). As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin. Today’s fillers are made up of varying concentrations of HA to give an injectable gel of different thicknesses. This is done to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. HA fillers have been used around the world for decades now with fantastic results and an outstanding safety record.
Indications For Dermal Fillers
- Plump Lips
- Restore Facial Volume (Liquid Face Lift)
- Fill moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles
- Correct facial asymmetry (Non-Surgical Nose Job, Chin Augmentation)
The treatment is performed by injecting the clear gel under your skin. Since it usually takes such a short time, it’s often referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure’. We use advanced HA fillers with an in-built anesthetic agent, which reduces the pain. Moreover, for added comfort, the client’s skin is numbed before treatment using a topical numbing gel. There may be slight bruising at the site of injection which will subside within a day. Most of our clients are comfortable throughout and after the treatment.
You’ll see the results immediately after the treatment. One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is that an antidote can be injected into the skin, which results in the product dissolving within 24 hours. This gives you the option of reversing the treatment if you aren’t happy with what you see. One of the great advantages of dermal fillers is that the effects are long-lasting but not permanent. Fillers can last anywhere between 6 – 24 months.
How long your results will last depends on the following:
- The area you have had treated
- Quality of skin
- Quantity and type of filler used
- Lifestyle ( smoking, heavy exercise can reduce longevity)
Can be given along with Botox: Usually, both are interlinked and combined to enhance the look. While Botox works to relax the muscles, fillers help to volume and hydrate the skin.
