Fight the signs of aging with dermal fillers!
As you get older, you’ll notice more signs of aging, like wrinkles, droopy skin, laugh lines, and crow's feet. Aging is natural, but we have a favorite saying at Deja You Medical: Aging naturally is overrated!
Fortunately, dermal fillers agree with us, and they’re available at our medical center to resist those signs of aging.
With age, your body produces less collagen and elastin, causing your skin to loosen and lose volume. Skin can become dry and thin as it loses its ability to bounce back into shape.
Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume and enhance facial contours while they reduce the signs of aging. Dermal fillers can be used to reshape and add definition to the cheekbone area and jaw line, for example.
Each filler is different and different techniques are used, but they are all injected using a needle into the appropriate skin layers. From there, they work to smooth out wrinkles — and do a lot more! The procedure is minimally invasive and non-surgical.
Dermal fillers can smooth facial lines, reduce wrinkles, restore volume, and enhance facial features while producing fast results. Seeing photos of patients with fillers before and after treatment can make you a believer (if you aren’t already)!
Specifically, dermal fillers can enhance and plump the lips, reduce small vertical lines around the mouth, smooth lines in the mid-face, diminish marionette lines and smile lines (nasolabial folds), and restore volume to chins, cheeks, and temples.
Dermal fillers can also:
Minimize skin depressions
Minimize the appearance of scars
Address folds in the skin
Improve facial symmetry
Add definition to jawline
Smooth chin creases
Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) gel, which is a substance the body naturally produces. HA is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and plump, but the body’s supply of HA decreases with age.
Dermal fillers reintroduce this important element to the skin. They provide long-lasting results because the body slowly metabolizes the gel-like dermal filler solution.
How long you can expect dermal fillers to last depends on many factors, such as the specific product, the targeted area, your age, and genetic factors.
With that being said, dermal filler results can last between six months and two years.
Just as results vary from one patient to another, so too do side effects. Some people may experience no side effects at all, and others may experience a few. Some side effects of dermal fillers include:
Infection at the injection site
Skin rash with or without itching
For most patients, redness, discomfort and swelling subside after two to three days. Patients typically need just an initial consultation and one session to see significant results. However, many of our patients elect to see us for regular sessions to maintain their beautiful skin and youthful appearance.
Since your body slowly absorbs the gel solution, the effects of dermal fillers will fade over time. As the months pass, the treated area will return to its natural state and appearance.
At Deja You Medical, we usually recommend that our patients begin treatment with dermal fillers when they reach their 40s or whenever they notice that signs of aging have begun to appear. Many younger patients in their late 20s to 30s also choose dermal fillers to prevent deep lines from forming between the eyebrows and between the outside edges of the nose and the corners of the mouth.
At Deja You Medical, we love to see our patients feeling beautiful, confident, and happy with their dermal filler treatments! We have a huge variety of the best and most popular products. If you’re interested in learning what dermal fillers can do for you, book a consultation with us now!
