DERMAL FILLERS

DERMAL FILLERS AT SKINN AESTHETE IN BURBANK

THE FACTS: Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected underneath your skin to change its appearance. They’re a popular and minimally invasive treatment for wrinkles. As you age, skin that sags or wrinkles can be caused by loss of fat and proteins in the skin layer. Injectables can’t permanently replace lost fat and proteins, but they can mimic your skin’s original structure.

Dermal fillers, especially those containing hyaluronic acid, fill in and smooth out lines, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles for a rejuvenated look.

 

Dermal fillers can be strategically injected to contour and shape facial features, such as the jawline, chin, and nose, achieving a balanced and aesthetically pleasing profile.

 

Dermal filler treatments typically have minimal downtime, allowing individuals to resume normal activities shortly after the procedure. Results are often visible immediately and can last from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used.

 

Some dermal fillers boost collagen production in the treated areas, contributing to improved skin texture and firmness over time.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

Dermal fillers are versatile and can be used across a broad age range. Younger candidates may use them for preventive purposes or to address specific concerns, while older individuals often seek them for overall facial rejuvenation.
 

Good candidates typically have reasonably healthy skin. Dermal fillers work best when applied to skin with mild to moderate signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume.
 

  • Individuals with concerns such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, or loss of volume in the cheeks or lips are excellent candidates for dermal fillers.

 

  • Those desiring fuller, more defined lips can benefit from lip augmentation using dermal fillers.

 

  • Candidates with hollows or dark circles under the eyes may find dermal fillers helpful in restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

 

  • Individuals seeking enhanced cheek contour and volume can achieve natural-looking results with dermal fillers.

 

  • Candidates should be in good overall health. While dermal fillers are generally safe, pre-existing health conditions can impact the suitability for the procedure.

 

  • Individuals with no severe allergies, particularly to components of the filler or lidocaine, may be suitable candidates.

 

  • Candidates without a history of keloid scarring, as excessive scarring can impact the results.


 

WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED?

Dermal filler treatments have become a cornerstone in the realm of aesthetic enhancements, providing individuals with an array of benefits to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and achieve a revitalized appearance. Understanding what to expect from a dermal filler treatment journey is pivotal in embracing the transformative possibilities.

 

As soon as the filler is injected, noticeable changes can be observed. Whether it's plumping lips, smoothing nasolabial folds, or enhancing cheek contours, the effects are often visible instantly.

 

As the filler settles and integrates with the natural tissues, the treated areas continue to refine, offering a more natural and harmonious outcome.

 

Usually patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately after the procedure. This convenience makes dermal fillers an attractive option for those with busy lifestyles.

 

While some fillers offer effects for several months, others can provide results that endure for a year or more. Periodic touch-ups can help maintain the desired look.
