Fillers allow you to enhance your look and take years off your face through an easy, non-invasive treatment. In most cases, patients can receive the treatment that they desire and have little to no downtime for recovery. This med spa treatment is extremely cost-effective and can benefit any skin tone or gender.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like materials that are injected beneath the skin for lip enhancement, acne scar removal, and to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. These face fillers, lip fillers, cheek fillers, and under eye fillers, replace lost tissue volume that occurs as we age and as a result of daily activities such as smiling and squinting.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Results vary from patient to patient based on the treatment area, daily activities, and other factors, including the type of dermal filler used. However, you can expect to enjoy your results for six months to a year, and up to two years.
How Long Do Under Eye Fillers Last?
You can expect results to last between six to nine months depending on daily activities and other factors.
How Long Do Nose Dermal Fillers Last?
Typically, nose dermal fillers last six to 12 months depending on your treatment as well as other factors.
How Long Do Chin Fillers Last?
Results can last up to a year. However, a six-month touch-up is recommended.
Do Dermal Fillers Have Side Effects?
Complications and major side effects are extremely rare, especially when you receive treatment by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Awada at Dr. Beauty. Common side effects are temporary — resolving in a few days — and include redness, bruising, itchiness, pain, swelling, and tenderness.
Are Dermal Fillers Right For Me?
Fillers can have profound results for anyone. As a result, before you get your treatment we recommend a consultation. However, no skin test is required prior to treatment.
Are Dermal Fillers Vegan?
We take pride in using products with no animal ingredients. The fillers we use are composed mainly of hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in our body tissue.
What is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Botox®?
Dermal fillers and Botox are similar in that they both can prevent signs of aging. However, how they treat the affected area is different. Botox is a neuromodulator which means that it targets the muscles responsible for creating fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, plump treatment areas to smooth the skin, and enhance facial features.
Because these two cosmetic treatments work differently, they can effectively work together to achieve your desired results. To see if these might be a good fit for you, book a consultation.
