What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are used to smooth the skin and restore volume to areas of the face that have lost their youthful fullness.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most commonly used type of dermal filler because they are safe, effective, and produce natural-looking results. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the body, and it helps to maintain skin hydration and elasticity.
What can Dermal Fillers be Used for?
Dermal fillers can be used to correct a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Smoothing wrinkles, fine lines, and creases
- Plumping up thin or flat lips
- Restoring volume to cheeks
- Enhancing facial contours, such as the chin, jawline, and temples
- Filling in under-eye hollows or dark circles
- Correcting the appearance of scars or other facial imperfections
How are Dermal Fillers Administered?
Dermal fillers are administered via injection by a trained and licensed medical professional at Persona. Before the procedure, the nurse will cleanse the area to be treated and apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort.
During the injection, the nurse will use a very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula to carefully place the filler into the targeted area. The entire process usually takes around 45 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers offer a range of benefits, including:
- Immediate results: Patients can see the results of their treatment right away, with improvements continuing over the following weeks.
- Minimal downtime: Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment, with only minor swelling or bruising.
- Long-lasting effects: Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last from 6 to 18 months or longer.
- Customizable treatments: Dermal fillers can be tailored to each patient's unique needs and desired outcomes, with different filler types and injection techniques available.
- Safe and well-tolerated: Dermal fillers are generally considered safe and well-tolerated, with minimal risk of serious complications when administered by a qualified medical professional.
